My vote goes to Matilda- I love the book though!! And would want my daughter to be as clever as the character! And it can be shortened to Tilly which is pretty. Good luck!

Jasmine, by a mile.

Hmm that's a difficult one! i prefer Matilda - but only because it was my favourite film! smile xx

Jasmine is pretty. Matilda is not.

Jasmine. Matilda is tedious, now

Jasmine is a "princess" name to me.

I like them both but Jasmine less popular - here anyway - it does make me think Disney Princess though? (I have 4yo so lots of Disney Princess everything!)

Jasmine is beautiful

Jasmine. Matilda is so popular at the moment.

I find Matilda very ugly, sorry. Jasmine is okay, very popular around here.

Lol funny you say that. I have 2 girls and we collect the disney store princess teddies.
a friend told me its a very 'asian name' and it may seem silly to use ..

My niece is Jasmine and she is smart, funny, kind, sassy... So I don't get the princess vibe at all smile

I love both. Maybe use one as first and one as middle name? Jasmine slightly ahead for me as the favourite.

Strange to be torn when they are so different. Jasmine = flower, Matilda = battle hard. Which would you prefer for her? That's how I would go (and have gone) about choosing

Jasmine. Never liked Matilda

BeautifulStars93 Mon 22-Jun-15 09:13:01

Jasmine (or even better - Yasmin).

bluewisteria Mon 22-Jun-15 11:32:19

They are very different! I prefer Matilda or Mathilde. But I think they are quite popular now?

Caillou Mon 22-Jun-15 11:35:03

What about Yasmin? (But then that's my dd's name smile )

Matilda is OK but Jasmine is a lot nicer IMHO.
