Hi everyone.

I'd really appreciate your opinion on two names for my baby girl.
She's due in 5 weeks and me and my partner just cannot decide between two names:
Olivia Grace
Harper Rose

Please let me know what you think. Thanks in advance 😊

I like them both tbh but if i had to choose id go for Harper Rose!

Olivia Grace

Olivia Grace or Olivia Rose are both beautiful and classy.

It's a No to Harper from me, sorry.

Harper Rose or Harper Grace for me

I really like Harper Rose.

I quite like both of them. If you go for Olivia though, bear in mind it's quite popular so will probably be one of at least two in her school class!

Olivia Grace definitely!!

Definitely Olivia (with either middle name). Harper is dreadful and will date badly.

Olivia Grace - just lovely. Work in a nursery and no Olivias at all

both are wonderful names. I like them both

Really don't like Harper so if it's only a choice between the two, it would be Olivia for me.

I quite like. Harper Grace

SaDan2016 Mon 29-Feb-16 16:05:37

Thank you everyone. It's really interesting to see what people think. I think Harper is a bit of a marmite name, either love it or hate it. We love them both. Already know lots of Olivia's so I think we are edging towards Harper Grace at the moment.

Harper Rose = Beautiful smile

Olivia grace or Olivia rose. Harper makes me think of screaming harpies.

I prefer Harper Rose. Olivia is over done right now and just not one of my favorites.

I can think of four Olivia Grace's off the top of my head. It's a lovely name but very popular where we live. Having said that I'm not mad on Harper Rose. But I prefer it to Olivia Grace.

Harper Rose is beautiful but the Beckham connection would put me off.

Olivia Grace is also very pretty but a bit like this generation's Gemma Louise.

That's our bug bear on Olivia, is that it is so popular now. It's such a beautiful name. We like Harper, after the author Harper Lee. Love some of her work.

Definitely a mix of the two with Olivia Rose for me! Love both of those names whereas I feel that Harper will possibly date due to the Beckham association and I know five recently born children with Grace as their middle name smile X

Having made the comment above, I should point out that I have the most popular name for the year of my birth and it has never bothered me at all.

SaDan2016 Tue 01-Mar-16 20:15:55

I didn't mean the comment about it being the most popular name to be offensive. I meant as in our area we know 7 Olivia's that would be around our little ones age. And from personal experience I don't want her known by her 1st and 2nd name. Happened to my brother ha ha friends would knock the door for him and ask for him by his 1st and 2nd name :-) so please don't think I meant it in a negative way. I love both names, that's why we are having such a hard time picking.
