Hi there, I'm on my mums account!! Must get my own my unfortunately wouldn't use it much I don't think sad

But for the life of me have no idea what name suits my little one. My husband likes the name Gretchen, opinions? I think it sounds a little troll-y??? As in the creature! grin it's growing on me though, but does it suit her?

We need names asap thanksthanksthanks

If you like Gretchen, name her Gretchen smile

She's lovely, congratulations.

She looks like a little Macy to me, but Gretchen suits too!

Awww, congratulations! She's lovely.

Personally I really like Gretchen. Or how about Greta, which is a little softer sounding?

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Wed 17-Feb-16 18:23:54

She looks like a Jennifer or a Rebecca to me,
She's a dear little thing.

BellaVida Wed 17-Feb-16 18:27:24

She's beautiful!

Gretchen seems a bit harsh to me. If you need a German connection:
Lena
Matilda
Miriam
Johanna
Karlotta
Selina
Mara

Or what about these:
Rosemary
Melody
Jasmine
Florence
Alexia
Rosalind
Esmeralda
Penelope

Congratulations!

IMO - children 'grow' into their names, however if you want a 'grown up serious' name (which Gretchen sounds like!), other options I like include:

Penelope
Miriam
Miranda
Agatha
Helena
Faith
Rebecca
Elodie
Beth
Lauren

BTW - if you like Gretchen, go with Gretchen. (Unless your surname starts with a G).

I think she looks like a Matilda. I don't think Gretchen suits her.

Floggingmolly Wed 17-Feb-16 18:54:52

She's beautiful. Don't call her Gretchen...
