First baby, a girl, due next month. I love these three names equally and am finding it hard to choose. I also quite like Anna but not as much as these others. DH had slight preference for Holly but is happy for me to decide. Middle names will be Mary Grace after two family members. Which do you prefer?

In that order.

A thousand times Lucy.

Amy is very dated and Holly is a Christmas name (and also a bit dated).

Lucy is my fake Starbucks name (what I wish I'd been called!).

That would get my vote. The others are nice too though.

Lucy. Sweet and perfect.

(and the name of one of my daughters grin)

Lucy, runner up Amy

I like Amy the most, especially as it's not a name of the moment.
I gave my Dd a name that Mn considered dated (80s) but I think is refreshing change.

I would switch over the middle names too because it doesn't sound right otherwise.

E.g Lucy Grace Mary sounds tons better

I love Lucy the most.

I love the name Amy. It reminds me of the character from Little Women. Must be spelled Amy though. I'm not so keen on Aimee (or variations). Lucy is sweet. Am, personally, not a fan of Holly at all.

I'm in Ireland but I must know 15 girls under 5 called Amy and another 5-10 called Lucy so I'd go for Holly.

I intended to call my daughter Holly since I was 14. I did!

Lucy was always our runner up girls name. We have talked about it so much over the years it seems odd we don't have a Lucy.

Anna is my favourite (helpful)

Lucy sounds a wee bit different from all the Amelia/Emily/Ella names and the other two are a bit close in sound.

Holly is very popular around here.

I really like Anna out of them all...very elegant.

IoraRua Mon 21-Mar-16 14:45:10

I really like Holly.
I have taught quite a few Lucys and Amys so I would avoid for that reason. I prefer Lucy to Amy tbh but much of a muchness between them imo.

Lucy. I love it and if Ds was a girl that would have been his name. I used it as a middle name for dd2 and was then gutted I couldn't use it as a first name for dd3.

Amy <biased>
In 4.5 years have only met one other Amy her age.
There are Lucys and Hollys all over the place.

Amy would have been Anna though , if good friends (geographically and emotionally) hadn't used it a year earlier.

AmysTiara Mon 21-Mar-16 14:55:03

Holly. I don't like Amy or Lucy. Lucy sounds really twee imo.

SnapCackleFlop Mon 21-Mar-16 14:58:38

Holly smile

KittyandTeal Mon 21-Mar-16 14:58:41

My dd is Lucy.

We think it's classic but different enough that there aren't 2/3 in each class.

I have yet to meet another Lucy her age.

Ludwsys Mon 21-Mar-16 14:59:35



Holly, I know loads of them, I can see 3 parents of a Holly/Hollie from where I'm sat right now.

mrsschu Mon 21-Mar-16 15:12:14

In this order:

I'm not a fan of Lucy, it's dull IMO. Amy is my DD's middle name, not because I love it but it has a very special personal connection for me. It does sound a little dated but not badly so. In fact my DD regularly tells me she prefers it to her first name!! Holly is nice also although I know 3 under about 5.

Lucy without a doubt
