Alexa.

Nicole wasn't pretty even in its 70s heyday.

Alexa

How about Nicola? It was v popular when I was at school but haven't heard it used as a baby name for a long time.

Alexa for sure. Lovely baby Lexie.

Well, I think Nicole is very, very pretty.

Don't like Alexa

Alexa sounds pretentious like she has a brother called Hugo.

Nicole is better.

I prefer Alexa, although I do think Nicole is pretty.

Nicole, very pretty.

I like them both and I really wanted to be called Nicole when I was in primary school.

Surprised by the love for Nicole, mostly because it is sooo dated.

So is Alexa, tbf - although the impact seems less because it was much, much less common than Nicole

I'm 43 and about half my contemporaries were either Nicole, Michelle, Lisa or Kylie!

Quite possibly different in the UK though!

Oysterbabe Wed 22-Jun-16 10:17:41

Alexa. That was our first choice for a while.

squoosh Wed 22-Jun-16 10:23:56

To be fair Nicole is pretty dated in the UK too. Maybe it's the memory of those 'Papa? Nicole?' Renault ads that give it a bit of a popularity boost.

Ambroxide Wed 22-Jun-16 10:30:27

I think they are both a bit dated, tbh! Are they names of friends or something, OP?

purplefox Wed 22-Jun-16 10:53:45

Alexa, but I prefer Alexandra

1horatio Wed 22-Jun-16 10:54:37

Alexa is lovely. Nicole is just... either a bit frumpy or sleazy IMO (sorry, not sure why, but that's just what I associate).

What about Carina? Cora? Andrea?

foreverandalways Wed 22-Jun-16 11:07:12

Alexa for sure.....Alessandra.....Isla....

Thanks so much everyone. My DD's name has been mentioned a few times as a suggestion so you're on the right track. Carina is another that we like. DH loves Nicole, I'm not sold on it. I like Alexa but he's not keen! There are very few others that we like enough to seriously consider. I like Sophia (too popular) and lots of 'L' names but as our DD is an L we are not too keen on another. Finding this so hard this time around!
