2nd DC but first DD due in February and DH and I have whittled down our names to just two: Mona and Hannah, we really can't decide, so I just wanted to see what others thought.

DS is called Finley if that makes a difference.

Hannah is nicer I think. Mona could be open to name calling eg 'moaner'

Hannah! Lovely name as is Anna.
Mona is awful. Moaner.

Hannah, all the very best, smartest, most creative, kind and loveliest people are called Hannah!

But I may be biased as I am one wink

Cant disagree with that Hairspray I don't think Hannah dates or fades you will always find a Hannah dotted about of all ages. My old Brownie leader was Hannah she died recently she was the loveliest kindest women i have ever met

Hannah, by absolute miles.

Hannah. Though I prefer Anna.

100% Hannah but like pp I may be biased wink

I have a little 18 mo Hannah and get a lot of lovely comments, mainly about not knowing many tiny Hannah's and how it's a name dotted about through age groups, as another poster said.

She was never going to be a Hannah, but when she arrived she wasn't any of the names we'd picked! I have a little boy with a hebrew name too, and I just love the symmetry of it written down.

Hannah. By miles and miles. Goes really well with Finlay too.

Hannah... that would be my daughter's name... love my boys but found it much harder to name them!

Really surprised at the overwhelming response in favour of Hannah, I was sure comments would be 50/50. shock

I suppose we'll be going with Hannah, I do love it, it's not that popular at the moment which is a plus.

In defence of Mona, it is a very lovely name, even with the 'moaner' association.

I am a Hannah and I love my name smile

SpidersFromMars Fri 21-Oct-16 11:48:53

Hannah definitely

Hanna also means happiness in arabic . Woman who worked in a hotel shop told us that 1 year on holiday .

I like Ramona, but not Mona. Hannah's still much nicer though

Chinlo Fri 21-Oct-16 11:59:08

I like Hannah a lot.

Not a fan of Mona at all.

MotherDuckSaid Fri 21-Oct-16 12:11:53

I LOVE Mona!

TheHiphopopotamus Fri 21-Oct-16 12:15:57

I like Mona. It's not a name you hear much these days.

Not keen on Hannah, but it's not an awful name.

I like Hannah, too. Dd has a friend called Muna, which might be an alternative to Mona?
