So our first child is due in just over 6 weeks (excited!). We've found out were expecting a baby girl but can't find a name we both love. Were planning on making final decisions when she arrives but need a shortlist. It currently keeps changing so was wondering if you could help us. We loved Isabelle but has now been vetoed as seems hugely popular at the moment. We like Amelia (Millie), but again it does seem popular at the moment. Also like Imogen and Samantha. Basically we don't want anything overly popular but don't want an 'odd' name either. Joanna is creeping up the list. Any help gratefully received x
I like Josie, that's a contender from my part. Samantha was the name my dad wanted to give me so he loves it. Think we'd prefer Sammi as a shortened version though, but DD can at least then decide herself when she gets older.
I like Isabelle but it is popular in its various forms but it depends on whether that bothers you or not. Not crazy about Amelia which I believe is about as popular as Isabelle. How about Amelie? Not a fan of Samantha, it sounds very dated IMO although I'm sure there are mumsnetters who would describe it as "fresh". Imogen is by far my favourite from your list, I'd go with that.
Glad you like Josie, I wish I could use it for my daughter I'm expecting soon, but my best friend has it. It's gorgeous! I wonder if you like these also just as suggestions I also liked: Amber, Ruby, Chloe, Keira, Rosie, Sinead and Poppy.
I like Eden but DH isn't keen. Amber is very pretty, I like that. Couldn't use a few of the other ones you've suggested MummyPiggy as we have close friends or family with children with those names. I knew MN would help with lengthening the "shortlist" haha
