I think Cleo but DH (I just asked him) thinks this is a strippers name. He likes Helena.

Adele gets my vote!

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Mon 02-Feb-15 14:30:20

Helena is lovely. I like Adele too, but prefer Adela (which I love).

Sylvie is sweet but I prefer it as a mn.

SnowWhite33 Mon 02-Feb-15 14:32:50

Helena! Its timeless

Sylvie/Sylvia and Helena

GlitzAndGigglesx Mon 02-Feb-15 14:35:07

Cleo or Adele. Sylvie makes me think of an old lady or a cat

merlehaggard Mon 02-Feb-15 14:36:58

I like Helena. Agree that Sylvie is a good middle name. Don't like Adele (purely on the basis it is the singer, although I do like her!) but really like Adela. Not keen Cleo.

merlehaggard Mon 02-Feb-15 14:37:43

Also not keen on Genevieve.

Sylvie's my favourite. The others aren't really to my taste.

sydenhamhiller Mon 02-Feb-15 14:43:47

Love Helena. As others have said, timeless.

hoobypickypicky Mon 02-Feb-15 14:48:18

Sylvie's my preference.

Helena, or Adele.

Allalonenow Mon 02-Feb-15 14:51:46

I'm not keen on Cleo, I agree with your DH.

The others are all lovely!
But though I like Helena very much she might end up as Ellie/Ellen which is very popular ATM.
I really love Genevieve, but again you might get the Eve/Evie nn.
So Sylvie or Adele would be my choice.

Oops didn't read it properly sylvie is lovely

Katie2489 Mon 02-Feb-15 15:03:47

Helena is beautiful

Nervo Mon 02-Feb-15 15:04:14

Helena for me.

IsadoraQuagmire Mon 02-Feb-15 15:37:02

My mom's name is Helena, though she goes by her middle name. If I could choose one of those names to be called myself, I'd go for Genevieve - but definitely wouldn't let anyone shorten it!
