I decided when I was 10 that if I ever had a daughter I'd call her Savannah, so the name has been with me for over 20 years. But I love Romilly too. I'm not too bothered if MN thinks it's a bit too ch....word! grin

Misspelt! I wasn't suggesting a wacky new version.

Romilly. It will stand the time test better.

Romilly. Love it!

As long as you're from nowhere near Stockport, Romilly is fine!
But up north it'd be a definite no. (Romiley is a town between Stockport and Ashton....)

Romilly is lovely I have never cared that much for Savannah but I suspect it is because I love Suzannah.

Romilly is nicer I think.

Romilly is my favourite.

Romilly but only because I had a friend with that name as a child and she was adorable.

Ahem. Just because the Queen's oldest great-grandchild was given the Savannah shouldn't automatically mean MN considers it a little ch..

I love Savannah.

I prefer Romilly but if you've always loved Savannah then ho for it!

GoldPlatedBacon Sun 04-Sep-16 19:41:23

Or go for it even blush

I think it depends on you surname

I like them both but I think Savanah indicates a personal heritage with "the south" and Romilly is for everyone/anyone IYKWIM

Romilly. But I am biased as I have one.

If you read MN you would probably believe they are similarly popular but there are usually only about 50 Romilly's a year. Savannah is much more popular. If that bothers you.

I prefer Savannah.

SellFridges - Yeah, there was a thread that said Romilly was too much of a 'now' name that will be ridiculously popular soon. Not according to smile

Do you have a NN for your Romilly?
