I'm really stuck between these 2 names for my little girl - any thoughts on how popular they are and whether they'll date easily as they get older? Need help!

Amelie is beautiful.

I love Jessica

I prefer Jessica.

Amelie is very 'now' and is more likely to date.

Why jessica out of interest? OH needs convincing.

Jessica. Suits all ages, nn potential Jess, Jessie. Pretty yet strong.
Amelie is pretty, but one-dimensional if that makes sense!

I prefer Jessica, beautiful dates well. Amilies ok but v similar to Emily

Jessica - it's more classic

(loads of Amelie's/Amelia's round here)

Some friends/family have said it is too common and a bit boring and unimaginative which has put me off a bit. Though on its own I think it sounds pretty when you say it.

Amelie and its variations are well overused these days.

Jessica. Beautiful and classy.

Jessica. Amelie was dated 5 years ago.

I know one Jessica, she's 9 and lives in a different country, so I wouldn't say it's too popular at all. I'd use it myself if it wasn't for her! (we're related)

Amelie is very similar to Emily, and Amelia so I think you'll spend lots of time correcting people and it's very popular (and I personally don't like Amelia/variants of)

Going against the grain. I think Jessica is horrible and outdated. So 80s and 90s. I couldn't tell you how many Jessicas I went to school with.

Amelie is lovely.

I have to agree with Pluto, think Jessica is very dull (although jess is ok). Amelie is lovely but I do agree it would be the name more likely to date.
