Naomi is one of my favourite ever names

manicinsomniac Sun 27-Dec-15 20:38:05

Cara - like it
Cherry - very cute, really like it
Lana - like it
Lara - love it
Leah - not keen on this, seems a bit dated or dull or something
Tamara - quite like it. not so keen on Tammy
Naomi - really like it
Ilana - never heard this. Is it like Alanna? I think I like it.
Jessica - I have one so biased. Love it.
Ruby - not very keen on this
Pippa - quite like it but would use as nn for Philippa, not a standalone
Sadie - love it.

Gorgeous list. I'd go for Jessica, Lara or Sadie.

jemimastar Mon 28-Dec-15 17:57:26

Like- Jessica then Pippa/Lana/Cara then Ruby/Sadie best from your list.

Enkopkaffetak Mon 28-Dec-15 20:47:08

Like
Cara
Lana
Ilana
Sadie

Naomi is ok

Jessica
Ruby
Pippa
IMO way to over used

Not keen on the others

Ilana is my favourite of your picks.

HTKB Mon 28-Dec-15 23:20:35

Thanks everyone, I so appreciate it. Apparently Lara has now been vetoed but after that it looks like Naomi is getting the most positive responses.

Kim82 Mon 28-Dec-15 23:25:43

Cara - OK
Cherry - No
Lana - not keen
Lara - quite nice
Leah - love it (I have one)
Tamara - not keen
Naomi - nice
Ilana - don't like
Jessica - nice
Ruby - too many of them
Pippa - as above
Sadie - I know of 3 dogs called this so it's a no on this one

StylishDuck Mon 28-Dec-15 23:32:18

I love Leah (though biased because that is my DD's name!)

The only other name I would use from that list is Cara.

Cara -- prefer Clara by a long shot, or Carly. I think Cara is very insipid.
Cherry -- very dated
Lana -- dated (Lana Turner). Lena is very nice however, imo.
Lara -- even though this has been vetoed, it's my favourite name from your list.
Leah -- very nice
Tamara -- very nice
Naomi -- lovely
Ilana -- very nice, very New York.
Jessica -- very nice
Ruby -- too commonplace
Pippa -- Philippa is nice, with Pippa as a NN
Sadie -- I would use Sarah as the official name, with Sadie as the NN

I think my favourites would be Lara, Jessica and Naomi (along with Clara and Carly which are not on your list.)

Leah or Naomi.

Probably Naomi smile
