All very different. Are these names you're considering for a baby or are you just posing the question?

My favourite is Isobel and least favourite is Maud.

Favourite Aisha (was on our shortlist wink)
I rather like Maud too.
Least favourite are Shanice and Bryonie.

They're an odd-looking set of names when you put them together - plain classics like Rachel, slightly dated Evelyn, Jemma and Lauren, the retro chic of Maud, the incredibly popular Isobel, and then the much more 'flash' Bryonie and Shanice.

Shanice is awful. I think my favourite is probably Maud.

They are an eclectic mixture

Favourite - Jemma
Least - Shanice, Maud.

sodabreadjam Thu 15-Dec-16 19:57:25

Favourite - Rachel (timeless) and Isobel - I prefer Isabel.

Maud is just too old-fashioned for me - I think it is ugly.

Don't like Shanice either. Sounds like a made-up American name.

Cosmicglitterpug Thu 15-Dec-16 20:07:21

Like Maud best.

Shanice the least.

Wowzers ... hope there are no shanice mnetters reading grin

I like Rachel and Jemma. I actually quite like all of them, they are eclectic but in a good way. Aisha sounds out of place unless you have Muslim heritage; it's a pretty name in itself though. I think I like Evelyn the least.

thegirlinthecar Thu 15-Dec-16 20:43:20

Favourite : Lauren
Least favourite : shanice and bryonie

BackforGood Thu 15-Dec-16 20:46:41

Fave - Rachel
Also like Carly

REALLY don't like Shanice or Maud. (Odd both are in your list as very different 'types' of names)

I wouldn't spell Bryonie like that.

There are millions of Isobels (and varieties of that spelling) in Nurseries right now, if that effects your decision.

DurhamDurham Thu 15-Dec-16 20:46:54

Favourite is Lauren
Least favourite is Shanice

SpeckledyBanana Thu 15-Dec-16 20:48:10

Fave: Isobel

Worst: Shanice

1horatio Thu 15-Dec-16 20:48:45

Favourite: Jemma. But I also like Rachel.

I really dislike Aisha (I've met two and they were both horrible), but objectively speaking it's probably a lovely name.
