Hi we are sorted for a boy (Phillip James) but are still thinking about girls names we like

Corisande (family name)

Would welcome thought and views about nn and popularity

My favourite from your list is Imogen smile

My favourite is Lowenna, but I like all of them except for Imogen

Corisande - knew one at university and always thought it was beautiful. I don't think she shortened it though.
Lowenna - love Cornish names (my DD2 has one of the generally frowned upon Cornish names but I love it!)

I like the name Imogen but it's very common amongst the 9-12 year olds I know. They are all known as Immy.

I like Ianthe best, then Corisande.

Imogen is my favourite. Lowenna is pretty. Not keen on the others.

Lowenna and Ianthe are dreadful. Xanthe is better, but not much.

Imogen, on the other hand, is lovely.

Imogen then maeve

The rest not so nice

Imogen or Maeve for me too. As someone with an unusual, tricky to pronounce and spell name, I have to say I hated it growing up and still am not keen on it now. I do think as parents we have to bear in mind our child is the one who has to live with it and having a particularly complicated or unusual one might be nice for us but not so nice for them!

Corisande is terrific. After that, Imogen is the next nicest.

MrsLeighHalfpenny Tue 24-Nov-15 23:09:02

How would you pronounce Maeve? "Meeve"? "Mave"? " Mauve"?

BackforGood Tue 24-Nov-15 23:13:45

Imogen is OK - don't like any of the others. Just personal opinion though - no actual reasons for convincing anyone else smile

They seem very different from your choice of boy's name ?

I liked Maeve when I was pregnant but it didn't sound right with my existing child's name. I would choose it from your list. Maeve and Imogen are the only names on your list I am familiar with.

Love Corisande. I've not seen it before, but it is beautiful. I would use nn Cori or Sandy.

I like all of your others, although prefer Morwenna to Lowenna, and prefer Xanthe to Ianthe. The only one that is even vaguely popular is Imogen.

Maeve is pronounced Mayv, MrsLeigh!

Cel982 Wed 25-Nov-15 00:03:10

(As in 'rhymes with Dave'.)

villainousbroodmare Wed 25-Nov-15 00:04:28

Definitely Corisande. A simple, elegant and unusual family name. It's lovely.
The only other one I like from your list is Maeve.
