Thoughts on short lists (so far)

(18 Posts)

I'm only 18 weeks so no rush to decide but I keep looking at current short lists and not sure how we are going to decide so just thought I would get some other inputs (don't want to discuss with family/friends). Plus I don't really know which (if any) are super popular right now. I'm based in Yorkshire to give context to anyone in this area.

So for girls we have:
Ada
Elsie
Erin
Faye
Kate
May/Mae
Rose
Ruth

We clearly seem to like short girls names.

For boys we like mainly older names:

Arthur
Seb
Seth
Stanley
Franklin
Francis
William
Leonard

Any others names welcome!!

I love Elsie, though i do know 2 born this year. Erin and Kate are very pretty too.

I love Seth and William off your boys list. Although Arthur William does sound nice

My faves are Ada, Erin, Seb[astian] and Seth.

Arthur and William. Rose and Erin.

I love Elsie, it's my favourite name but our surname starts and ends with s and has an l in the middle so it just doesn't go.

Rose and Leonard.

I have an Erin smile
People always comment on how pretty it is.
I love the fact that she is the only girl in her school with it.

From the boys I like Francis.

Elsie and Arthur are my favourites.

Those are all good names. I don't like Kate but only because I don't like nicknames as given names (no offence). I'd always go with Catherine and then use Kate as a nickname so she had the choice later to be more or less formal in certain situations.

NoCapes Mon 22-Aug-16 15:36:27

I like most of your girls names, particularly Ada & Erin

Don't like any of the boys names though tbh

Rose or Ruth are nice. Kate is nice but prefer as a shortening for Katherine/Catherine.

And Seb[astian] for a boy, (has to be the full name!) or maybe Seth. William is nice too.

No offence taken Londongirl83, everyone is entirely to their opinion hence me asking.

NoCapes I think the boys list will get more mixed reactions. I certainly know babies grandparents probably won't like them! Haha

I like Erin, Faye, Ruth, Seb & Seth best from your lists.

I do like Arthur & William but know so many little ones at the moment that I'd go for something else.

Lovely names! My top ones from your lists are Elsie and Francis (I like Frank/Frankie)
