Beatrice Lily definitely.

Congratulations. flowers

Penelope Jane as a second choice.

Hate Sybella. Sounds like a medical condition. Like everything else.

Penelope Jane

My order of preference would be:


I have never heard of Sybella and, to me, it seems vaguely made up - do feel free to correct me though!!

All lovely apart from Sybella which is a very ugly name (in my opinion)

Sophronia Thu 03-Sep-15 22:01:40

I've not heard Sybella before but I do like Sibylla.

I like Sophie Elinor, Beatrice Lily or Penelope Jane.

Sophie Elizabeth or Beatrice Lily

Thanks for the feedback. Yes Sibella/Sybella is an unusual name, but it is a derivative of Sybil. I'm finding that not many people are liking it though!

ThroughThickAndThin01 Thu 03-Sep-15 22:11:27

Sophie or Annabel

Congratulations .,

1. Sophie
3. Annabel.

Both of the others just don't have any appealing quality they'd be far down my numerical list!

Congrats flowers

Loathe Lily and massively overused round here. Love the rest including Sibella though I would normally spell it Sybilla.

I like Sybella a lot, it's pretty and it is unusual but in a good way smile And I think it goes well with Lucy.

I wouldn't use Sophie as it is massively popular, and she could well be Sophie 'D' at school.

Though I like Annabel, I think it is too close to Isabelle, which is again very popular.

I quite like Penelope but don't like Penny at all, and think Penelope Jane is very bland, and am not keen on Beatrice.

What about Aphra or Corinna?

Beatrice absolutely

Congratulations flowers

Wasn't Sybella the name of the fickle hearted flibbertigibbet in Kind Hearts and Coronets?

Even so it's my favourite from your list. The world really doesn't need another Sophie.

Squooshed Fri 04-Sep-15 13:05:10

Although I've just had a thought that people might mishear it as Isabella. That could be irritating.

Gummibaers Fri 04-Sep-15 14:02:39

Beatrice or Penelope!

manicinsomniac Fri 04-Sep-15 15:25:31

I really like Annabel and Sophie

Beatrice and Penelope are okay

No keen on Sibella at all
