i love april but I'm leaning more towards sylvia as all my other children's names start with an S, and she will be born in march? What do you prefer?

Do your other DCs names fit in with the typical time period for "Sylvia" too?!

I personally like April much better, but if she's born in March may be a little problem with people presuming she's a April baby... However not one I'd bother too much about.

Is your Due date early March? No chance of an April birthday?

no chance of april baby, and sibling names are unique and a little old fashioned i guess

Prefer Sylvia, especially if not an April baby. Why not use April for mn?

I really love Sylvia, it makes me think of Sylvia Pankhurst. I also like the French version - Sylvie - too.

I like Sylvia a lot and I'm not a fan of April at all, so it's an easy choice for me!

I prefer April but. Its a bit daft on someone not born or conceived in April, so. On that basis Sylvia

I much prefer Sylvia.

I like Sylvia and more so Sylvie. I agree that as a march nirthday you can't have April - bizarrely you could if it was a December birthday I reckon

I like both smile

April Sylvia would be a lovely combination.

I love Sylvia. Not sure about month names if not born then but that's just personal preference x

Sylvia Plath, so nope, sorry. It's an April from me.

Sylvia! Love it!

There are four threads on Sylvia on the first page of baby names. Must be making a sudden comeback.

I think it's all the same poster!

I like April a lot more.

Sylvia is the name of an old lady who lived above me many years ago. She owned an albino ferret that got loose every once in a while.

The April I know was born in December, so.

Sylvie or April but not Sylvia.

I don't think the month matters, either. I love both April and May, wouldn't occur to me that the baby would have to be born in the 'correct' month to use them.

Sylvia is a lovely name. I don't like April as a name.

JudgeJudySheidlin Tue 29-Nov-16 22:03:31

I know a Sylvia who hates her name as it was like calling a child Sharon nowadays. I'll be honest, I cannot understand why the name is so popular on here? April is ok but odd to use the name for a child born in March? That said I know a Summer who was born in Autumn
