I can't decide! Help!

Oh and you could chuck Emilia into the mix as well - I do like E names.

Cecily by a million miles!

Elouise or Eloise is one of my most favourite names ever.

Wish my DP liked it!!!

SpidersFromMars Thu 29-Sep-16 22:53:13

My favorites are Eliza or Eloise. What about Elise too?

bummyknocker Thu 29-Sep-16 22:54:41

Cecily for me!

Ambroxide Thu 29-Sep-16 23:06:41

The only one that isn't great is Eloise. Good choices!

Jemima or Tabitha

Eliza or Emilia.

Definitely NOT Tabitha or Jemima!!

I love Eliza and might steal it for my list

I don't like Jemima because all I can think of is Jemima Puddleduck

Eloise is my favourite name in the world. My DH also didn't like it. I feel as though an Emilia would spend her whole life correcting people trying to spell Amelia.

Emelia or Tabitha :-)

NewsReview Fri 30-Sep-16 00:22:02

My reservation with Eloise is that she might become another Ella/Ellie...

ShmooBooMoo Fri 30-Sep-16 00:28:05

Eloise or Elise

hoddtastic Fri 30-Sep-16 00:33:30

There are a billion Ellie / Ella type names out there - tabitha is a cats name- Jemima a ducks- Cecily is nice (as is Celia , Esther , Lara and elizabeth )

Not puddleduck or tabby cat. Don't really like Eloise either.
So Eliza or Cecily. Both are much nicer than the other three.

Don't like Eloise because of the Ellie connection.
Love Jemima and Cecily. What about Eleanor?

Cecily and Eliza are absolutely beautiful - classic, timeless, elegant, simple and wonderfully pretty. Two of my absolute favourite names, and make a lovely sibset if you ever have another daughter!

Eloise - I love, but it has a more modern feel to me as it's become a lot more popular recently - beautifully elegant name, but I worry that it'll be the next Olivia or Isabella.

Emilia - Not a fan of this, or Amelia. Also becoming very popular lately - there'll most likely be more Amelias/Emilias/Emilys in her year group. I do like Emma, though.

Jemima - Really dislike - Jemima Puddleduck? I just don't think it's a pretty sounding name. Clunky and old-fashioned to me.

Tabitha - see Jemima. Tabby cats. Not a very pretty or elegant name to me - reminds me of a bright orange cat with a lisp. Sorry!

Cecily and Eliza are my absolute favourites - Cecily Eliza Lastname makes a beautiful combination!

From your list, I like Tabitha or Jemima.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Fri 30-Sep-16 12:54:59

Semester ! Should be Esme.

Jokat Fri 30-Sep-16 13:08:34

Eliza is the prettiest name on the planet!
I do also love Cecil.

Jokat Fri 30-Sep-16 13:10:00

Cecily, not Cecil. Thank you predictive text

toastedbeagle Fri 30-Sep-16 13:12:43

I have a friend with a Tabitha & Jemima. Claims not to love Beatrix Potter buts its suspicious.
