Baby girl due shortly and we're struggling to find a name we love. We have a short list but not sure any of them feel like 'the one'. Would be really grateful for views on the following - you may have a perspective that hasn't occurred to us!

Carys (we have no Welsh link)

I like Erin and Iris. I think Irina would fit on your list as well.

I love Astrid and Cecily. Erin is very nice too.

Constance. Wanted it for dd but sounds ridiculous with her last name.

BellMcEnd Sun 07-Jun-15 22:02:19

My favourites are Astrid (LOVE it) and Iris.

Would also suggest Ingrid, Ivy, Amber and Rowan.

Congratulations! flowers

I like Astrid, Cecily, Iris and Constance. I think Constance is my favourite of the list.

Agatha or Cecily.

Cec isn't a great nn though.

I'd go for Agatha.

Just not Agatha, please don't do it to a poor child

Carys and Iris gmv.

I like Astrid, Cecily and Iris.
Also really like Carys and don't think it matters if you have no Welsh link, although you/she would probably be asked that a lot.

My favourites are Astrid and Cecily (nn Cece).

Carys Erin and Iris are my least favourite.

I had Constanceon my list. My eldest is no weight and cannot believe I even considered it. Her and her friends roar with laughter about her nearly being called Constipated.

I like Cecily

Agatha: Agatha Trunchbull! Really though, I like this name, though many might see it as unflattering. It would be a nice name for a quirky girl.

Astrid: Unless you're absolutely certain your baby is going to be born with biceps the size of bulldozers I would avoid this aggressively "viking" name

Cecily: I think this name is a little too much, but that's just me. Im sure other people would love it. I prefer Celia as a similar-sounding, less frilly alternative

Erin: mousy, meek name

Iris: I used to hate this name but it's growing on me. Could be the name of a beautiful girl.

Constance: I think this is a strong and pretty name, love the nickname Connie too

Carys: There are nicer-sounding names on your list, and with no Welsh link i see no reason for you to pick this one over one of the others

Thanks everyone for your responses - much appreciated smile

sunshinemummy2012 Mon 08-Jun-15 20:10:23

I think Cecily is lovely

BitOutOfPractice Mon 08-Jun-15 20:12:53

Erin is mousy wesH? I think it's the exact opposite!

I really like all your names OP - Cecily and Agatha would be my least favourite but they are all lovely

How about waiting till you see your DD - you may well think "Ah! She's obviously a xxx!" That's what happened with my DC1

Sansfards Mon 08-Jun-15 20:24:13

I like Erin best too. Sounds strong but gentle.

Sparkie7 Mon 08-Jun-15 22:23:38

Thanks Bit, think that's what we'll do. Overthinking it just at the moment!

applecatchers36 Mon 08-Jun-15 22:26:29

Constance is my fav from your list

cosmicglittergirl Mon 08-Jun-15 22:36:38

I have an Iris Constance. Sometimes I wish I'd kept Constance back for another DD! I also love Cecily and Agatha, but Iris or Constance I'll have to say.

Lilydreams Mon 08-Jun-15 22:55:21

Erin, Iris and Carys are all beautiful imo

DampAndRotten Mon 08-Jun-15 22:59:03

Agatha is lovely.

I also like Agnes.

manicinsomniac Mon 08-Jun-15 23:14:50

Agatha - sorry, this is one of only a couple of names I really can't stand
Astrid - love it. Often wish Id used it
Cecily - like it
Erin - really like it
Iris - really like it
Constance - it's ok. Connie is quite a cute nn
Carys - love it. And I know a non Welsh baby Carys

I would choose Astrid from your list. But, other than Agatha, think they're all lovely.

Nice names. My vote would go with Constance, Iris or Astrid. Carys is the only one I'm not keen on.
