Esmé Sophia .....

Esme is alright if pronounced Esmay - can't stand the other way grin
Never liked Clara.
Xanthe is nice.

Definitely Clara

Really don't like Xanthe or Esme.

Clara or Esme (but agree Es-may, the mee thing is not nearly as pretty).

Clara or Esme (Es-may)

I like Clara and Xanthe but not Esme

Clara. Clara Sophia is lovely. Very elegant.

Clara is beautiful. I also have a soft spot for Xanthe though as it's very pretty but a bit unusual too and is still a 'real' name.

And Esme second, only if pn Ez-may.

I want to like Xanthe, but I don't.

Clara or Esme (like both Ezmee and Ezmay)

Esme for me.

I have a Xanthe....always get comments on her beautiful name and she is the only one in her peer group

Esme pronounced either way seems to be becoming more popular - there's a few round here aged between tiny to teen.

Clara is lovely.

Absolutely love Xanthe it's my puppy's name

Dislike Clara know a horrid one.
Xanthe was a boring teacher in my youth.

Esme I like.

Clara Sophia is gorgeous.
I like all three names though, but agree with pp about pronouncing Esme as Ez-may, I don't like Ez-mee.

Clara. Xanthe looks like a collection of tiles you'd struggle to use on a Scrabble board.

Esmé (assuming it's pronounced properly). Clara is fine but there are lots around. I dislike Xanthe. I've also never actually met one in real life, the only place I've come across it is on here...

Clara, by a million miles.

whirlybird42 Sat 06-Feb-16 21:04:27

I love the name Clara. Clara Grace is nice. I love Sophia but I'm not sure I'd us it with Clara.

Clara Sophia would be lovely.

Xanthe is nice but I don't think it flows as well with Sophia.

Not keen on Esme.

I recently met a very cool toddler Clara so that gets my vote!

Esme is very popular where I am so not massively keen.

I like Xanthe as well.
