Had settled on one of these early in pregnancy but having a few last minute wobbles. So brainstorming again.
Out of interest which do people prefer?

Erica definitely. Tabitha is a cat to me although seems to be highly rated on mumsnet and Violet is too similar to violent.

StetsonsAreCool Thu 12-Nov-15 21:52:25

Oooh, tough one!

I think Erica, then Violet, then Tabitha.

Erica was one of DH's choices for DS. It's lovely.

StetsonsAreCool Thu 12-Nov-15 21:53:09

By which I mean, we couldn't use Erica because we had DS. Not that he wanted to name our son Erica blush

I think tabitha and violet are beautiful. Violet being my favourite. Erica sounds harsh in my accent.

DramaAlpaca Thu 12-Nov-15 21:54:28

I like Violet best, then Erica, with Tabitha a very distant third.

Violet definitely. Erica is harsh and tabitha is a cat.

Violet. (Although the similarity to 'violent' has always bothered me.)

I have never liked Erica and Tabitha is catty.

AliciaMayEmory Thu 12-Nov-15 21:59:28

Oooh,I love them all! Toss up between Violet and Tabitha for my favourite , but you can't go wrong with any of those names. smile

Paddletonio Thu 12-Nov-15 22:00:52

Violet definitely

IoraRua Thu 12-Nov-15 22:04:23

Erica. Violet is lovely too but popular I think, and Tabitha is a cat.

GothJoose Thu 12-Nov-15 22:06:00

Violet, Erica, Tabitha

But Erica Violet flows nicely

SoftSheen Thu 12-Nov-15 22:06:17

Violet, though all three are nice.

ExBallerina Thu 12-Nov-15 22:07:50

Violet is beautiful.

trinitybleu Thu 12-Nov-15 22:08:01

Tabitha (as I have one, and she is very cat like hmm ... Well, actually she does have long limbs, likes to laze around and loves having her tummy rubbed ...)

Then Violet and Erica.

Tabitha Violet sounds nice ...

EllyOlly Thu 12-Nov-15 22:08:38

Erica, Violet, Tabitha in that order.

Bodicea Thu 12-Nov-15 22:19:58

DH doesn't like Violet so thats out. Our chosen name is Erica. But I am getting lots of pulled faces when I tell people ( I know it is stupid to tell people). So just brainstorming to make sure there isn't anything else I have missed. What do people think of Talitha instead of Tabitha?
Any other suggestion welcome.

IoraRua Thu 12-Nov-15 22:22:35

I still prefer Erica over Talitha. Talitha is much nicer than Tabitha though!

Tatiana maybe?

ashesandfire Thu 12-Nov-15 22:23:12

Erica is very cool. I like it a lot. Followed by Violet.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Thu 12-Nov-15 22:36:09

Erica. The others are awful

Wishsicles Thu 12-Nov-15 22:41:21

Violet was my favourite, but if that's out - Erica! smile

BathtimeFunkster Thu 12-Nov-15 22:44:57

Erica by a mile.

Violet is the only name I like, no love from your list, it would be my DC2s name but do not like Erica or Tabitha at all.

Both of those sounds very twee, average and a bit common to me, sorry.

I really like tabitha, then erica, then violey
