Emily, Sophie and Zoe?

Me and DH don't like strange names but nor do we like really common ones.

I can't tell if these names are too simple though?

They're nice.

I'm considering Kitty and/or Berry! Mum thinks they are cutsey pet names. Your choices are quite normal.

sandmo Sat 27-Feb-16 21:09:41

Definitely not all good solid names

They are perfectly normal, nice names. I wouldn't consider any of them twee or cutesy.

Emily & Sophie are quite popular, Zoe less so.

I hate Emily sorry, just reminds me of an old lady.
Unfortunately I told sil this when she was pregnant without realising she loved it so I put her off sad
Have said nothing since in rl.
Names are so personal and I'm sure plenty of people wouldn't like my dc names.. Go with what you both love

I have a Sophie who's 2.5. I was worried it would be really common but she's the only one at nursery (although I think there's a Sofia).

Sophie is very very popular. Prefer Emily myself

Nope, like them all! Love Zoe in particular - pretty but strong.

Writerwannabe83 Sat 27-Feb-16 21:21:14

My DH prefers Zoe. Our son's name begins with an A and the juvenile side of him thinks it would be great to have A-Z names grin

When we were pregnant with DS, before we found out the sex we liked Zoe for a girl so when we found out we were having a boy we disclosed our potential girl's name as Zoe and MIL absolutely hated it!!!

Sadly MIL has since passed away but I can't stop thinking of her reaction....

Zoe is lovely.

Emily and Sophie are pretty common.

My mil hated my ds name which i had decided whilst pregnant. As soon as he was born she loved it and stills denies saying anything to this day grin

They're all lovely names smile

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sat 27-Feb-16 21:53:18

Zoe is lovely.

As are Emily and Sophie.

Emily and Sophie are both top 10 names and have been for many years so by default are common. Zoe less so and I certainly wouldn't describe any of these names as twee or cute.

My Mil hates my dds name but who cares; she's my child!

KaraokeQueenOfTheNorth Sat 27-Feb-16 22:29:12

I love the name Zoe!

EmpressOfTheVulvaCupcakes Sat 27-Feb-16 22:34:43

All good strong names but I'd go for Zoe too.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Sat 27-Feb-16 22:41:25

I only like Sophie but I don't think they're twee. Zoe is quite different these days.
Are you expecting another baby

squoosh Sat 27-Feb-16 22:54:55

I love Zoe.

I find Sophie a bit dull and I dislike Emily.

InkleWinkle Sat 27-Feb-16 23:04:57

Zoe is a lovely name.
I like the A-Z names as well! You could have bookends all over the place 😀

KoalaDownUnder Sun 28-Feb-16 01:01:45

I don't like Emily, and Sophie is lovely but overused.

I would go for Zoe.

slithytove Sun 28-Feb-16 01:21:49

I like Zoe but would use the umlaut so it's pronounced correctly. Zoë.

Quietwhenreading Sun 28-Feb-16 01:26:30

They are all great names, elegant, strong, good for a grown up names.

I particularly like Zoe, but the others are lovely too.

There's one of each in my DD's class all fantastic girls.

KoalaDownUnder Sun 28-Feb-16 01:53:56

slithy, is there any other way to pronounce it but 'zo-ee'? (Genuine, not snarky)

squoosh Sun 28-Feb-16 02:09:40

Nope.

Love the name Zoe. It sounds so fresh.
