Baby is due in February. Going to wait until baby is here to officially decide which name if its a girl (a boy's name is 99% set) but just wondering if there was a clear favourite as I swing back and forth daily between the two girls names we like. Both sound great with the surname.

Which do you prefer?
Ffion or Nia

Nia by miles.

I've got a ffion so I am biased I think it's beautiful

Auto bloody correct.


Sorry for swearing on a baby name thread.

I love Nia. I wanted to call my daughter it but my husband wasn't having any of it.

Nia is lovely. I don't think I ever met a Nia the whole time I worked on a postnatal ward.

I love them both, especially Ffion, but I have known many people to get so confused over the name outside of Wales. Nia may be easier to travel with when she's older

Both lovely but on balance I would go with Nia.

MalbecAndLindt Fri 28-Oct-16 14:56:13

Wow, Nia already seems to be a clear favourite. My one concern with it is that people would confuse it with Mia...?

Ffion gets my vote.

SpotTheDuck Fri 28-Oct-16 15:20:55

Nia seems pretty popular now so don't think it should get confused with Mia. You will get a lot of confusion about whether it's nee-a or nye-a though

I like ffion but few people outside wales know how to say it (George w bush thought William hagues wife was called "Evian" apparentlu

I would say Feon tuning with he on. Is that right spot?

AndNowItsSeven Fri 28-Oct-16 16:04:48

Ahh rhyming not turning!

GinAndOnIt Fri 28-Oct-16 16:10:14

Yes And - FEE-on

TaggieRR Fri 28-Oct-16 16:51:25

I like Nia

RiverTam Fri 28-Oct-16 16:52:38

I prefer Nia but I do think you'd have a lifetime of telling people it's N for November...

Really don't like Nia - just don't like how it looks or sounds.
