What lovely solid names. I especially like Clara, Elodie, Flora and Daisy. I haven't heard of a little girl called Jenna for ages, though - it's ripe for a revival!

Lovely list of names. I especially like Clara, Rosie, Amelie, Elodie (DD's name) and Eira.

Your right op girls names are a minefield... Due my baby in a couple of weeks and if it's a girl I'm snookered....

From your list I really like-
felicity- feminine and yet strong and not too popular
Amelie-again feminine and not every child in class will have this name

Congratulations flowers

Jenna and Megan are lovely. Many an Amelie here in north London

I like Elodie, felicity and aurora from your list. I do like Jenna but think it might be mistaken for Gemma which puts me off a bit. How about Jennifer, verity or Aurelia?

I like most of your chosen names, especially Aurora. I think it's important to choose a name that will grow from child to woman. Names like Chloe and and Tahlia and Ellie to me don't sound like a name a woman should have if you get what I mean.

Jenna and Clara are my favourites but DH not totally convinced about Clara he says it isnt feminine enough?!
Love Flora but my family hate it they all say "like the butter?" uh no
not sure i love Jenna shortened to Jen tho but maybe i do not sure
LOVE Aurelia but Dh doesnt

Megan would be good as DS1 name is welsh so would go nicely with it but alway reminds me of a border collie>!
am i over thinking? Megan Amelie sounds nice to me? or Jenna Elodie

i also LOVE Gretel but again everyone ive told laughs!

think i need some more names to add to the mix!

The potential drawback with Jenna (as it's never been in widespread use in UK) is that the strongest association may well be Jameson. Perhaps Jennifer instead, as that would give you the same range of nicknames?
