I am totally stuck on names for my baby girl, due any day! I want a classic, elegant name that is not too, too popular or likely to scream 'born in 2015' in 20 years time smilePlease tell me what you think of:

Eloise
Madeleine
Imogen

Thank you!

I'm not sure how Classic it is, but I'd choose Imogen from your list.

TakesTwoToTango Tue 03-Nov-15 22:07:06

Thanks poppy. Imogen is Shakespearean, if that makes it 'classic'..?

SoftSheen Tue 03-Nov-15 22:09:31

Imogen is VERY popular.

I prefer Madeleine from your list.

HarryLimeFoxtrot Tue 03-Nov-15 22:11:01

Based on your criteria, I'd go for Madeleine.

I think Imogen is already having a popularity spike and might indicate 'born around 2015' in the future.

Madeleine.

I don't like any of them, sorry. Classic elegant, not too popular or too 2015, I think of

Alexandra
Victoria
Isabel / -la / Isadora
Fiona
Claudia, Beatrice,
Sophia...

Madeleine

All are lovely. I would just say that Madeleine will have to spell her name out as there are variations.

They are all very nice, but I slightly prefer Eloise.

TakesTwoToTango Tue 03-Nov-15 22:25:52

Thanks all. Trout, Isabel is lovely, but with variant spellings, very high in the current E&W top 10, as is Sophia.

I don't like them but probably Eloise.

I called my baby Eve. That's timeless and classic!

IoraRua Tue 03-Nov-15 22:53:46

I think all of those will date. Madeleine probably the safest out of the three. Eloise screams 2015 to me. Imogen very popular I think.

Nice names but I do feel they'd be dated....

DramaAlpaca Tue 03-Nov-15 22:55:36

Of them all my favourite is Eloise.

NadiaWadia Tue 03-Nov-15 23:16:27

They are three beautiful names, you have great taste. I think Madeleine is perhaps my favourite. I don't think they are over fashionable in the same way as Isabella, Amelia or one of the Eve names.

Madeleine

ExBallerina Wed 04-Nov-15 03:28:22

I vote for Eloise

DeepBlueLake Wed 04-Nov-15 04:11:34

Madeleine.

Imogen is fantastic. Shakespearean and classic. I like Eloise too although not quite so much, I know a few too many toddlers called Eloise. To me Madeleine is the only one the screams 2015?? Or even 2011! I know of so many little girls called Maddie, I feel like it has already dated. Having said that it's a lovely name so if you're not so worried about popularity then it's a great option.

I like them all smile

I have a Margaret and also love Frances and Louisa.

Eloise

Madeleine

Elbelle6 Wed 04-Nov-15 13:26:58

I know a Madeline who's 60, an Imogen who's 40 and an Eloise who's 17

I don't thing any scream 2015. Madeline gets called Mad or Maddy.

Imogen gets called Immie, which I like lovely Shakesperean name.

Eloise is named after the medieval nun who had the ill fated love affair but went on to be a fantastic and clever writer

I prefer Imogen. Though Cordelia and Rosalind are also great Shakesperean names

My favourite is Madeleine. And none of them scream 2015 to me.
