Help me choose! Thanks very much. Any other suggestions welcome too!

It would be Lucy for me, such a beautiful classic name, not faddy.

I like all of them! Do you have a mn already?

Lucy Isobel
Naomi Rose

Lucy - classic and underused at the moment.
Rose - lovely to hear as a first name instead of postfixing.
Isobel - beautiful but very overused.
Naomi - loving a bit of 90s chic.

My verdict - Rose flowers
Timeless and unusual as first name :-)

Lucy or Rose for me. I love Lucy Rose smile

They are all lovely, but I think that Rose is beautiful and underused as a first name so that gets my vote smile

Thanks everyone! Mn is decided - but didn't want it to influence first name choice as it's been chosen for family reasons. It goes fine with them all though! Thanks for your opinions.

We have a Lucy Isabelle - she is 6 years old and awesome smile Lucy used to get called Cece by her brother when she was a baby/toddler! Expecting a baby in August and for a middle name we are thinking about Rosa (or Eva - decisions, decisions!!). I would go for 1) Lucy 2) Rose

Isobel is fine. Naomi sounds like a harder mixture of syllables to pronounce then most other names and does not roll out easily - when you have to say it again and again - (just me though I'm sure). Lucy has a friend called Naomi and I must have heard it pronounced Nay-me (and other variants) a hundred times. You would have trouble shortening this too (if you wanted). It's fine though.

Lucy - lovely
Rose - also lovely
Isobel - overused at the moment
Naomi - lovely Biblical name, but can have pronunciation issues.

I'd pick Lucy.

I have a Lucy and thought there would be loads of them, but I don't know any others. She is 11 and I don't know any younger ones in her brother and sisters' circle of friends.

Rose and Isobel v popular round here. Not that that would put me off but we have Isobel B, Isobel M and Izzy H in one class.

Naomi lovely but could annoy you if you want it pronounced in a particular way. Are you intending Nay -O - mi or a NAY-o - mi? I suspect people might go for both so if this will annoy you it is something to bear in mind.

Lucy. Pretty, classic, not used much these days, AND Queen of Narnia!

All lovley names hard to pick favourite but might go Lucy or Rose.

Isobel gorgeous but very popular at moment.
Naomi slightly less keen on....

Lucy - I think it's a beautiful name.

NoahVale Sat 09-Apr-16 10:47:14

love them all, Naomi might be slightly less popular if that persuades you?

Cosycottage4 Sat 09-Apr-16 14:58:45

I have a Naomi Rose, so I'm biased :-)

We had Lucy, Rose and Isabella on our short list. We chose Lucy.

All these are really nice but I prefer Lucy.

Gardencentregroupie Tue 12-Apr-16 16:00:28

My almost 2 year old is Lucy, so that has to get my vote. I'm enjoying all the Lucy love on this thread.

Rose! My absolute favourite name, dd's middle. I love her first name, but Rose!

Lucy Rose is lovely.
