Which name do you prefer? Matilda, Elspeth or Fiona?

Fiona. It's definitely due a revival
Elspeth is awful. Like Elizabeth gone wrong
Matilda has been done to death

Elspeth - that was our girl name when we had DS1, love it. It is marmite name though, if that bothers you at all.

Matilda is my favourite, i like the opportunities for nn Mattie, Tilly, Tilda

Next is Fiona if you don't mind the Shrek references

I don't like Elspeth at all, it just looks wrong

Fiona for me. Lovely, classic feminine name.

Matilda is way overused/dull and with Elspeth it's the 'p' sound that I don't like.

Elspeth is a lovely name.

Matilda is overused and Fiona is dull.

Matilda definitley for me... Can be shortened to Matty or Tilly, which are both really cute too.
Really dislike the name Fiona (sorry), don't know why but always have

Elspeth is gorgeous
Fiona is a bit dated
Matilda is nice but a bit overdone
