Matilda, Tabitha, Ella or Nina: which is your favourite? Last name is two syllables and fairly common. Middle name will be Catherine.

Ella by a mile! Love it!

I think it's lovely and by far the most unusual of your list, without being at all odd (not that the other names are odd).

Which name do you and your dp prefer?

leaningtoweroflego Tue 29-Dec-15 21:12:21

Ooh difficult, I love all of these names!

Tabitha then Nina I think.

bigbadbarry Tue 29-Dec-15 21:12:58

Nina. If I had a DD4 (I won't!) she'd be Nina. Unusual and lovely.

Ella, by far. Nina a distant second, and I wouldn't consider the other two.

Oooh... gotta be Nina. I knew a Nina at school, she's the only one I've ever met and she was ridiculously pretty. Really lovely person too. 😊

Tabitha or Matilda. But you can't go wrong with any of them really. Ella is probably the most popular at the moment.

Not Tabitha. You're having a baby not a kitten
Too many Matildas
Ella is okay a but a bit harsh sounding and very overused
Nina is gorgeous. Sweet, unique pretty graceful and elegant.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Tue 29-Dec-15 21:21:51

Nina Catherine is beautiful.

WanderingTrolley1 Tue 29-Dec-15 21:22:33

Nina is beautiful.

Too many Ellas in every class these days. Not so keen on Nina. Feels like a nickname not a whole name,

RiverTam Tue 29-Dec-15 21:25:11

Ella or Nina. Don't like Tabitha and whilst I like Matilda, I hate the nns - Mattie, Tilly, Tilda.

xmasseason Tue 29-Dec-15 21:25:27

Nina, then Ella.

I don't like Tabitha or Matilda.

villainousbroodmare Tue 29-Dec-15 21:26:35

Nina. Ella is dullish and the others are cat names.

nooka Tue 29-Dec-15 21:28:26

Nina. By sa mile smile Works well with Catherine too

ADogCalledLamb Tue 29-Dec-15 21:29:56

I really don't like Nina, love Tabitha though.

Allalonenow Tue 29-Dec-15 21:30:08

Matilda, lovely name, also love Tilda as a nn.

Ella is very popular ATM, and not keen on Nina or Tabitha.

Emmpp Tue 29-Dec-15 21:35:34

Ella or Matilda.

Not a fan of Tabitha, indifferent to Nina

maggiethemagpie Tue 29-Dec-15 21:47:15

Tabitha. Ella too popular. I have a name similar to nina and I don't hate it but I don't love it.

Unoriginalusername123 Tue 29-Dec-15 21:58:55

Another vote here for Nina: lovely and underused compared to your other choices. However you wouldn't do badly with Tabotha or Matilda though. Ellas are ten a penny and it's a cutesy name IMHO.

thunderbird69 Tue 29-Dec-15 22:03:08

Tabitha Catherine - tabby cat??

Nina is my fave

SanityClause Tue 29-Dec-15 22:04:43

Nina, definitely.

SummerMonths Tue 29-Dec-15 22:38:45

Wow I did not expect Nina to be so
popular! I thought it the most controversial. I love it though. For me it's between Nina and Matilda. DH is a big fan of Tabitha and Ella but would agree to my two.
