thanks guys!

Annie is lovely. Susannah is ok but a bit long. Not keen on the others personally.

Phoebe usually ends in just an e.

Love Annie. smile

calzone Tue 06-Jan-15 18:11:08

My friends have a Niamh.....Nim for short. Cute!

my favourite from the list is phoebe, are u changing spelling as havent seen it spelt with an 'i' before.

sammyj85 Tue 06-Jan-15 18:15:42

Thanks, we're both reading your comments and my list is winning! My dh's second cousin is a Phoebie with an i but they are Australian. I think I prefer it without actually now you've mentioned it.

Love Erin, Naomi and Alyssa!

My favourite is Erin

The only one I dislike is Alyssa

Phoebe with an ie is a misspelling, even in Australia.

Spell it Phoebe, please.

How do they get Nim from Niamh?

Names I like from the list:

calzone Wed 07-Jan-15 07:37:01

From the letters I suppose math.

Better than the other Niamh I know which is pronounced

Truly awful.

Love Niamh & Erin

Susanna with nn Annie would be lovely?

Sophronia Wed 07-Jan-15 15:23:27

I love Susannah and Annie. Naomi, Alyssa and Niamh are nice too.

Murphy29 Wed 07-Jan-15 15:25:07

Erin or Niamh

GlitzAndGigglesx Wed 07-Jan-15 15:29:04

Niamh! Hoping to use it if my baby is a girl always loved it

Annie - reminds me of the uber annoying musical Annie. Hate her.
Phoebie - Phoebe is a nice name
Niamh - boring
Erin - brand of soup
Susannah - lovely
Naomi - like
Alyssa - not crazy about this, she'll spend a lifetime saying 'no not Melissa'.

Frikadellen Wed 07-Jan-15 16:37:11

Phoebe and Niamh are my favourites I do like Susannah though.

Not keen on any of the others mostly due to poor associations

sammyj85 Wed 07-Jan-15 18:37:04

Thank you for having a look! I was in love with Annie until they re released the film, it'd feel like we named her after that now. Awful timing!

myotherusernameisbetter Wed 07-Jan-15 20:46:27

I haven't heard of a Naomi for ages so I'd vote for that. Niamh and Erin are 10 a penny and a bit "common" where I live.

Annie, Phoebe and Suzanna are all nice. I prefer Alicia to Alyssa.

The most famous Phoebe I can think of is from Friends - her twin is Ursula and that is nice and unusual and seems to generally fit with the style of your other names but feel free to ignore as you didn't ask for suggestions smile

mathanxiety Wed 07-Jan-15 20:54:03

Oh no Calzone shock. I hope Niamh doesn't go the way of Caitlin/ 'Kate-lynn'.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Wed 07-Jan-15 21:32:19

Love Naomi and Susannah.

applecatchers36 Wed 07-Jan-15 21:36:00

Like Phoebe and Niamh best on your list

ashesandfire Sun 11-Jan-15 19:05:32

Annie- too nicknamey for me
Phoebe- irrational hatred of mine
Niamh- I like it but i think its a bit boring
Erin- really like this
Susannah- lovely and you could have nn Annie
Naomi- love this. My standout fave from your list
Alyssa- not keen. Bit American for my taste. I prefer Alicia

Nervo Sun 11-Jan-15 19:11:56

I love Susannah. Always have.

The others are all nice but not as nice as Susannah.
