Which of these names do you like for a girl? I already have a Eva and a Isaiah. Feel free to criticise, suggestions are also welcome!

None to be honest.

Armelle is the best, but it's not good.

Empress is comical - you're not Kim and Kanye - your child will 99.9% probably live a very normal life, in which a name like Empress will be a hindrance.

Eadlin doesn't look like a name to me. I may be wrong, and hugely culturally insensitive, but it looks like a bastardisation of Aladdin.

Italy isn't one of those place names that works well as a name. Even if it did, Italy sounds masculine to me.

Your list is a shame because Eva and Isaiah are both so lovely. On the place theme, would a name like India suit you? Eva, Isaiah and India is a great sib set.

Eadlin and Armelle are the best two IMO.

I really hate Italy as a child's name.

Jesabel Sun 03-Jan-16 21:59:27

Amelle is nicer than Armelle.

Italy and Empress (snigger) aren't names for people.

Eadlin sounds more like a name - is it gaelic?

SoWhite Sun 03-Jan-16 22:01:00

Agree with Jesabel, Amelle is pretty.

I don't think any work with your current DC as none of them look like actual names, which your DC have. Apart from Eadlin, is it Irish?

They are all a bit silly tbh.

Sophronia Sun 03-Jan-16 22:04:33

I don't like any of them, sorry.

ScarlettDarling Sun 03-Jan-16 22:05:40

Yikes, sorry but they're all awful.

What about Amelie instead of Armelle?

SkyShadow Sun 03-Jan-16 22:06:33

Eadlin's an Anglo-Saxon name according to Google. I'm sure I've come across it recently - perhaps some minor character in a fantasy novel? - but I just can't remember where. It's annoying me now.

BertrandRussell Sun 03-Jan-16 22:07:08

All awful!

Tartyflette Sun 03-Jan-16 22:07:40

Empress sounds like a female GSD, or similar. Sorry.

SirChenjin Sun 03-Jan-16 22:07:52

How are you pronouncing Armelle?

Forget the rest - pregnancy hormones have clouded your judgement grin

SuckingEggs Sun 03-Jan-16 22:08:10

sorry, not keen.

ThenLaterWhenItGotDark Sun 03-Jan-16 22:08:53

Italia exists as a girl's name, in Italy obvs. It's very frumpy.
The others sound like air fresheners. Your other children have classic traditional names, none of your suggestions would go with them.

PurpleDaisies Sun 03-Jan-16 22:09:55

I really don't like any of them. Sorry about that. Eva and Isaiah are great names though.

Duckdeamon Sun 03-Jan-16 22:10:11

All terrible but empress and italy are the worst.

elQuintoConyo Sun 03-Jan-16 22:10:12

Armelle - isn't she a character in My Name is Earl?

Italy and Empress definitely not.

Eadlin is growing on me smile

Isaiaheva Sun 03-Jan-16 22:14:43

Armelle is French I believe, maybe I should have a rethink then.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Sun 03-Jan-16 22:16:45

Eadlin. Sounds like an anti biotics
Armelle. Sounds like a contraceptive pill
Empress is nice but she'd have to be able to carry it off.
Italy. I like. After all there are lots of children named after countries aren't there. But the only thing is. Italy would have to mean something to to you . ie where she was conceived. Where you got engaged, yours and your parnters first holiday destination for example.

PenguinsAreAce Sun 03-Jan-16 22:20:06


How about India?

manicinsomniac Sun 03-Jan-16 22:36:31

Definitely not Empress! What a name to have to live up to.

I like Eadlin, and Italy has a pretty sound but I'm not sure it's really become a name as well as place like lots of other places have.

Not keen on Armelle but it's ok.

BertrandRussell Sun 03-Jan-16 23:05:29

Presumably Empress is a joke?

Borninthe60s Sun 03-Jan-16 23:16:38

They're all ridiculous!
