My list is getting longer, not shorter, for my new baby girl's name. Can you list your top 10? Giving 10 points to your favourite, and 1 to your least! I'll add them up and see which one scores the most! Here they are (in no particular order):

River
Willow
Ava
Edie
Esme
Bo
Bibi
Mia
Maeve
Delphine

Thanks for your time! If you can tell me why you like/dislike a certain name that's great too! Xx

Esme, Ava and Willow are lovely.
Delphine, Mia, Edie and Maeve are ok. Would prefer a full name with Edie as nn.
River is more a boys name IMO.
Hate Bibi and Bo, they sound like CBeebies characters.

River -3 - Love this name but only for a boy.
Willow -10 - Best name on the list but I am a Buffy fan
Ava -7 - Nice name but really popular
Edie -5 - Like the name but needs a full name for birth cert
Esme -8 - nice name, but also on the increase and is probably the next big thing once people have got bored with Ella/Ava/Evie etc
Bo -1 - No No No. Bo is not a name. Please consider the High Court Judge test
Bibi -2 - Ditto. Use Barbara with this as a nickname if you must.
Mia -6 - Another pretty name but really over used
Maeve -4 - can only ever hear this in Kenneth Williams voice, a la "oh Matron!"
Delphine -9 - Pretty, and relatively unused

River - 8
Willow - 9
Ava - 5 (too popular!)
Edie - 7
Esme - 7
Bo - 1
Bibi - 1
Mia - 8
Maeve - 9
Delphine - 6

Bibi sounds like the name of a children's character - the name of my rabbit as a kid too! - and Bo - BO? Body Odour? No way. I think if you really like Bo or Bibi they'd have to be family nicknames with a longer name to use in school. Love Maeve and River but Willow is my favourite.

Allalonenow Fri 14-Oct-16 15:58:36

Maeve and Delphine are the only two I like.

Bo and Bibi are awful, unless you are naming a Tele Tubby.

hoddtastic Fri 14-Oct-16 16:01:22

they're very of this time/era (aside from Maeve and delphine)

I don't like Bo and Bibi at all - they sound like random noises.
Delphine and Esme - different to all your other names, not keen on Delphine, Esme a bit better.
Mia and Ava - boring.
Maeve - different again, being Irish I know a lot of them. Ok name.
River and Willow - similar. Ok.
Edie - best by a mile!

MadameDePomPom Fri 14-Oct-16 16:43:16

I like Edie as a full name and I like Bibi as a nickname for something else.
I don't like the rest. Especially Delphine.

viques Fri 14-Oct-16 16:47:09

All minus 5 except for Ava and Maeve which tie on plus 6.

Are you seriously thinking of calling your child Body Odour? Actually I have regraded Bo, down to minus 20.

River - Song (Melody Pond) - 3
Willow - fine but not strong - 6
Ava - very popular now, I've no idea why - 4
Edie - fine as a nn but not on its own - 7/2
Esme - plain but fine - 7
Bo - fine as a nn but not on its own - 7/2
Bibi - 10+ as a nn (I adore it for Beatrice) but not on its own - 10+/2
Mia - means "mine" and she is her own self - 0
Maeve - pronunciation and spelling issues would spoil it for me but it's nice - 7
Delphine - the french donkey in Peppa Pig which DC3 is obsessed with but it's stylish - 7

Bibi for Beatrice/Beatrix please!

I only really like my 7-10 rated ones. The rest were all bad, Bibi and Bo in particular confused

DoItTooJulia Fri 14-Oct-16 17:00:59

I can't play the game-time poor, but I really want to stick up for Bo. My favourite girls name!

Sorry! I'm not keen on short names, I prefer longer ones.

Shockers Fri 14-Oct-16 17:06:52

River- sorry, this reminds me of River Phoenix
Willow- I know 3 dogs named Willow.
Ava 4- classic.
Edie 2- I know a beautiful Edie.
Esme 1- love it- I imagine a serene person when I hear this name.
Bo- it worked for Bo Derek...
Bibi 3- I think this would work on a child, or adult.
Mia- sorry, I don't like it.
Maeve- How is this pronounced?
Delphine- I don't like this either, but I can't work out why.
