Imogen
Alethea (A-lee-thea)
Lucia
Hazel
Georgia
Elise

I like Georgia the best. How would you pronounce Lucia?

Vixxfacee Mon 02-May-16 18:57:43

Like them all.apart from hazel and alethea

Cosycottage4 Mon 02-May-16 18:58:23

PS alethea sounds a bit like alicia with a lisp so like that one the least...

I'm a teacher and alethea is just asking for trouble- it will be mis spelt and mis pronounced all the way through school, sorry. It does sound nice though. I like Georgia- you could call her George for short and I love that.

My favourites are Imogen and Elise.

Agree about Alethea

29redshoes Mon 02-May-16 19:02:25

I like them all except alethea!

Alethea is awful. It's too lispy and ugly.

Imogen and Georgia are nice.,

I like them all, but Georgia and Lucia the best.

A4Document Mon 02-May-16 19:08:44

I like Georgia, Lucia (if pronounced Loo-chee-ah) and Imogen.

Ilovewillow Mon 02-May-16 19:11:54

All lovely but Imogen is my favourite and Immy always sounds nice as a shortened versio !

Howaboutthisone Mon 02-May-16 19:12:04

I like Imogen, Elise and Georgia.
Not keen on the others.

3yearsnosleep Mon 02-May-16 20:13:02

Thanks everyone! I think Alethea might be out then!

Would pronounce Lucia (Lu-see-a). Can't decide if that's asking for trouble spelling/pronunciation wise as well. We already have an unusual surname that's difficult to spell.

Imogen - meh
Alethea (A-lee-thea) - nice
Lucia - like
Hazel - love
Georgia - love
Elise - will be always misread as Elsie

Sophronia Mon 02-May-16 20:21:08

How about Althea instead of Alethea?

3yearsnosleep Mon 02-May-16 20:26:19

Hmm maybe although it sounds a bit like Anthea which reminds me of Anthea Turner smile

manicinsomniac Mon 02-May-16 20:26:51

Imogen is my favourite followed by Hazel.

minipie Mon 02-May-16 20:28:29

I like Elise, Georgia and Lucia best

BoboBunnyH0p Mon 02-May-16 20:38:09

Imogen gets my vote it's my DD name. We used Immy as a nn but DD didn't like it, however as she heads towards her teenage years her friends call her Iggy.

septembersunshine Mon 02-May-16 20:57:24

Lucia gets my vote (but a Lucy!!). What about Cassia?

TempsPerdu Mon 02-May-16 20:57:28

Love Hazel and Lucia, but only with Loo-chee-a pronunciation.

Cosycottage4 Mon 02-May-16 21:21:21

I love loo-chi-a too!

Bellalilysmith123 Mon 09-May-16 00:56:30

Georgia & Lucia both gorgeous

Winterbiscuit Mon 09-May-16 09:21:37

Alethea = Ale Thea

Also sounds like Alicia with a lisp.

ABitAsleep Mon 09-May-16 11:44:09

Like all of them other than Alethea

I would order them;

Hazel
Lucia (pronounced your way - Lu-cee-ah)
Elise
Georgia (shortened to Georgie)
Imogen (Shortened to Immy)
