Hello all. My baby is due today and still unsure of girls names! We have a boy name but can't pick a favourite for girls.
We like megan, lily, Katie, Elizabeth, Harriet and Sarah.
Personally megan and lily are my favourites but I'm worried they may be too popular. Also my surname begins with M so not sure about Megan M....
Please help!

I like Harriet and Sarah. Megan always sounds a bit harsh to me. Katie is more of a nickname- Katherine is lovely. Lots of Lilys at the moment, but it's a sweet name if that doesn't bother you.

My neices are Megan and lily. High school age. I don't like either name personally. Meg is more unusual I suppose, billions of Lily's between zero and 15 around here.

I have a serious love for the name Lily. It wouldn't bother me how many others there were, it's so beautiful. I might choose Lilian with Lily as nn. Second choice would be Elizabeth.

I think Sarah is lovely, and would be unusual in her peer group, but classic.

Sarah is very underused nowadays, I think it's lovely. Harriet and Elizabeth are nice too.

Lily, Katie and Elizabeth are all gorgeous.

Sarah is so underused! Love it. Too many Lily's already.

Harriet Lily sounds lovely

Thank you folks, appreciate your input. I keep coming back to megan though, I do love meg for short.

I have an Elisabeth, and her nn is Lily smile

They are all classic names think lily is prob the most popular if that's your concern.

My personal fave would be Megan or Harriet.

Good luck with everything, let us all know what you decide x

I love meg and think it goes nicely with an m surname. Go with your favourite.

I love Megan!
Lily is just too popular for me - and I think it will really date too.
Sarah and Harriet would be my next favourites from your list.
Rachel would be my other suggestion.

Oh no more OH said last night he doesn't like megan anymore! My other two children are called alex and paige, not sure which name goes best. Does anyone like Nicole? Any other suggestions?

SurfsUp1 Thu 18-Dec-14 07:12:53

I prefer Nicola to Nicole.

What about Michelle - I think it's really due a come-back.

Miranda? Amanda? Vanessa?

I decided megan!
