I have a few favourite girl names (due in June), interested in what others think? I won't be offended smile My top name is Audrey, probably Audrey Clothilde (Clothilde is my mum's middle name). Other top choices are Ida, Violet and Imogen. I like the nicknames Millie and Tillie (also Minnie) but can't think of any good names to go with them!

Really love Audrey, Violet and Minnie.

Don't love Imogen, Ida, Millie or Tillie.

I love imogen, violet and minnie.
Minnie needs a full name though.
Not keen on Audrey though (corrie).

Love Violet. Favourite girls name after dd.

Don't like any of the others, sorry.

Love Violet. Would have been my dds name but a family member got there first.

What about Matilda with Tillie for short?

I'm a real life Clothilde and I love it. I shorten it to Tilda.

htf2 Sun 14-Dec-14 18:15:51

I'm such an idiot - I didn't realise Clothilde could shorten to Tillie! Maybe I should save it for a first name as I like Clo also! (although given I don't even know this baby is a girl it might be planning a bit too far ahead to be definitely having 2 girls :P ) I could get away with it being unusual because it's a family name...

Just the usual caution that Minnie is common slang for a girls gentialia ( Black Country/ brum at least )

manicinsomniac Sun 14-Dec-14 18:20:13

I really don't like Audrey. Don't like Clothilde as a first name but it's fine as a middle and I do quite like Tillie.

Not keen on Millie.

Ida and Violet are pretty.

I love Imogen.

I love Audrey. Would be my choice if i had a dd.

mondaymadness Sun 14-Dec-14 19:15:57

Audrey is very understated. Love it.

vomistheworst Sun 14-Dec-14 20:04:54

I love Audrey and Ida.

I know a Minnia "Minnie"

htf2 Sun 14-Dec-14 20:44:58

thanks all. I actually hadn't expected so many positive responses smile theas good to know - as an Australian who moved to London this year I had to google black country!

myotherusernameisbetter Sun 14-Dec-14 20:52:08

prefer Audra to Audrey, not that keen on any of the rest with Millie and Minnie at the bottom of the pile.

Tillie is not bad actually - short for Matilda? but then I think you'd be struggling to use Clothilde as a middle name as they are too similar.

Tasia or Tasie have a similar but (imo) nicer feel to the usual Millie, Minnie, mollie type names. Short for Anastasia.

hoobypickypicky Sun 14-Dec-14 20:53:50

I adore Audrey. Violet is sweet too.

myotherusernameisbetter Sun 14-Dec-14 20:53:54

Thinking that if you had Audrey Clothilde you would be totally Coronation street as you could shorten the middle name to Hilda? grin

Alby16 Sun 14-Dec-14 20:56:20

I think Imogen is beautiful, really beautiful. Quite a sophisticated name.

MIllie, Minnie, Tillie are nice but I dunno I just think the other names you picked are more classic. xx

Titsalinabumsquash Sun 14-Dec-14 20:57:37

How do you pronounce Clothilde? I've never seen it as a name.

(Sorry to hijack!)

Fwiw, I love 'elderly lady' names as my DP calls them hmm if this baby is a girl I want Iris or Ivy but he's vetoed both sad

FrancisdeSales Sun 14-Dec-14 21:41:19

Love Audrey.

-illy names just to warn you DN is Polly and her best friends are Molly, Milly and Lily! (They are 8)

I find Imogen a bit lispy, Audrey is stronger.

HollyBdenum Sun 14-Dec-14 23:31:18

Clothilde is pronounced Clo-TEELD.

Guin1 Mon 15-Dec-14 07:14:18

Love Audrey. Like Imogen. Neutral on the others.

I like all of them with the exception of Ida which Im not so keen on. We also loved Minnie, but there's a good chance with her genes our girl would be tall, and I thought it would be unfortunate if she put a little too much weight on.
