I've posted this question a couple of months ago, but 3 weeks to go and still very undecided!! Would be grateful to have a few more opinions to sway me....

I think Kitty is the best. Will it be short for anything?

I just can't warm to India, to me it just morphs into the plethora of Indie-type names at the moment, Indie, Indigo, Indiana.

Love Jemima.

I have a J so I'm biased, but I found it lovely both as a little girl's name, and also as a young woman. I had an Aunt Kitty, I like that name too. Not so keen on India, I think it will sound dated in future years.

Jemima. Unless Kitty is short for something, like Katherine or Caitlin.

India- Not unless you have actually been to India. Seems a little dated now.
Kitty -is nice but needs to be short for Katherine/Kathleen.
Jemima -is gorgeous

I'm a 25 year old India and have always loved my name, don't think it's dated at all.

India is the only one I like.

India is a beautiful name.

I love Kitty.
Really like Jemima
India is ok but the most popular of the three (I am a high school teacher - taught 3 X India 1x Jemima )

I love India as a name. It's not a faddy name, India Knight is 50!

Kitty and Jemima... India would be my third choice.

Kitty is my first choice.

Jemima means dove, which is beautiful.

India or Jemima. I really don't like Kitty as a given name.

India is a beautiful name.

Other 2 just seem drab compared to India.

Kitty or Jemima. Don't like India.

I think Kitty and Jemima are both beautiful. I worked with a Kit who was both gorgeous ( inside and out) and I know a jemima who is very lovely too. Her sister is Eliza which I think is lovely too. Good luck!

Thanks all, v helpful to hear different takes on them....

Kitty or Jemima. India is very 1990s I think...

Kitty - I had a lovely (not really your auntie but a friend of your nana) Auntie Kitty.

A certain very vocal celebrity with outlandish ideas has a daughter called India doesn't she?
