These are our favourite three girls names for our DC-to-be but we're having difficulty choosing between them.

DD is Naomi.

Please help us decide! All opinions welcome. It would be a bonus if you could suggest middle names too - we're also struggling with those.

Thank you smile

Love Elodie and Eloise (but personally prefer Eloisa- biased though)

Never liked Olivia I find it a very harsh name to say. (Weirdly all the Olivia's I have known has been lovely and sweet so to me do not suit their names)

I love Olivia with Rose as a middle name. Second choice would be Elodie, not as keen on Eloise as I used to be although it's a perfectly nice name. All lovely choices, have fun choosing!

I like Naomi and Olivia.

Ipushedmygrannyaffabus Mon 17-Aug-15 23:00:03

Naomi is gorgeous! I like all 3 of your names for the new baby but Elodie to me just sounds like someone mispronouncing melody.

Olivia is sooo popular, I would probably go for Eloise.

Eloise Aurora
Eloise Dawn
Eloise Ruth

My DD is Elodie so I may be biased when I say it's my favourite.

Olivia and Eloise were also on the shortlist though and in the end it was between Elodie and Eloise. Funnily enough Naomi was one of the names on our list had DS been another DD too. So you have a good choice in names!

Eloise. My favourite girls name ever!

Olivia is very common where I live and Elodie just reminds me of Melody.

I've got an Eloise Elizabeth! Elizabeth as a middle name goes back years in our family though. I love her name, and haven't shortened it, even though people keep asking me what I call her for short hmm

HoneyDragon Tue 18-Aug-15 00:22:34

You don't abbreviate Eloise's. You wholly avoid inflicting an abbreviation on a young Eloise until such a time as they are old enough and able to pointedly and violently death glare at anyone attempting to do this, themselves.

WishIWasWonderwoman Tue 18-Aug-15 05:50:19

I would go with Eloise.

Love the name Olivia but it is so popular! Elodie is nice but a lifetime of corrections with Melody/Elodie etc and I think Eloise is just a teeny tiny bit nicer.

Eloise is just a great name! And it has some nice nicknames.

ch1134 Tue 18-Aug-15 06:36:40

I love Olivia.
Eloise goes well with Naomi.

MamaLazarou Tue 18-Aug-15 12:15:17

Eloise, definitely. Olivia is far too popular.

MamaLazarou Tue 18-Aug-15 12:15:48

Naomi is beautiful, by the way smile

RedToothBrush Tue 18-Aug-15 12:31:05

Elodie screams this decade, whereas Eloise which has fallen out of favour a bit is a bit more timeless.

Olivia again screams this decade and is currently the second most popular girls name which, for me at least, crosses it off the list. You might be fine with that though.

Eloise and Naomi are both pretty and fairly hard to place time wise and are just different enough without being quirky in any way.

SmugairleRoin Tue 18-Aug-15 15:38:25

Olivia is too popular imo.

Elodie and Eloise are both nice but I wouldn't be keen on an El name as I think she could end up being called Ellie - not a huge issue though. Of the two I prefer Eloise.

I heard of Ellaria a while back which I thought was quite pretty.

Naomi is beautiful!

RiverTam Tue 18-Aug-15 15:40:00

Eloise. Lovely name and a great song by The Damned!
