I'm interested in knowing what people's favourites are from my list of girls names for dd2. I'm struggling to decide! Not due for another 14 weeks so plenty of time but we had dd1's name sorted by now so I'm not used to the wait and see what she looks like method!

KenDoddsDadsDog Tue 20-Dec-16 21:35:45

Martha is my favourite

AndNoneForGretchenWieners Tue 20-Dec-16 21:36:15

Bethan, Georgia and Juliet.

They're all lovely names. Least favourite is Bethan. Favourite probably Anna - I love that name. Then Alice, then Juliet. But waiting to see what she looks like is an approach that works well.

AuntieStella Tue 20-Dec-16 21:39:34

I like most of them!

Favourites are Juliet, Martha, Elizabeth and Alice.

Not so keen on Tessa (I see it as a nickname) or Bethan (looks unfinished)

SirNiallDementia Tue 20-Dec-16 21:41:45

Tess is my favourite (but not Tessa!)

Than I like Alice.

Least favourite is probably Florence.

I like all of them.
1.Tessa - prefer Tess but both are fine
2.Georgia - fine
3.Elizabeth - yes but pick the preferred shortened version - love Beth, Lizzie and Eliza, Libby is OK
4.Bethan - no, it's a Welsh name that was hugely popular in the 60s and 70s so is a bit dated (in Wales), and the non-welsh pronunciation (the a pronounced as uh instead of a as in cat) is not good. It is just another form of Elizabeth really.
5.Juliet - it's nice but I don't like it pronounced Julie-ETTE. I say Jool-yet but think maybe it is Jooly-et
6.Florence - pretty but not keen on Flo, Florrie or Flossie
7.Anna - excellent
8.Alice - love it
9.Martha - it's ok. bit frumpy maybe.

CalleighDoodle Tue 20-Dec-16 22:20:53

Tessa. Gorgeous
Georgia Nice name
Elizabeth. Classic sophisticated timeless.
Bethan. Not keen
Juliet. Very harsh.
Anna see Elizabeth,
Alice. See above, but personally. I don't like the name
Martha. See Juliet
Florence, see Anna Alice and Elizabeth, but. Its getting tedious now.

Awwlookatmybabyspider Tue 20-Dec-16 22:28:57

Order of preference, then.

MumOfTwoMasterOfNone Tue 20-Dec-16 22:59:49

We very nearly picked Georgia until we heard of all the Jorjas and I heard a teenager shouting it across Tesco to her friend. Then I couldn't think of a worse name shock
I like Florence and Martha. Each to their own. A lot of people hate my choice in name!

MumOfTwoMasterOfNone Tue 20-Dec-16 23:00:25

Also like Juliet. The rest are just meh!

DramaAlpaca Tue 20-Dec-16 23:09:18

My favourites are Anna, Juliet and Alice.

I also quite like Florence and Elizabeth. I prefer Tess to Tessa, but it's OK.

Least favourites are Martha and Georgia.

CakeRattleandRoll Tue 20-Dec-16 23:11:45

My favourites are Martha and Juliet.

Glitterous Tue 20-Dec-16 23:42:00

Juliet or Georgia. I don't really like any of the others.

Sophronia Wed 21-Dec-16 00:15:54

Martha is my favourite

Pluto30 Wed 21-Dec-16 00:19:17

In order of preference:

1. Juliet - Love this. Reminds me of the song Romeo and Juliet by Dire Straits (plus Shakespeare).

2. Martha - Love this. Reminds me of the song Martha by Tom Waits.

3. Georgia - Love this, and quite underused at the moment.

4. Elizabeth - This is my name, and I can't fault it. Lots of nickname potential (although Liz and Lizzy are what people automatically shorten it to - I used to hate Lizzy but have grown to like it a lot over time). Everyone knows how to spell and pronounce it, but it's not overly popular.

5. Anna - Very pretty, but I find it a bit boring compared to the names above.

6. Alice - Sweet, but very overused at the moment.

7. Florence - The full name is fine, but I can't stand any of the nicknames (and both Florences I know get called Flo).

8. Tessa - Don't like. My grandparents had a spaniel named Tessa (or Tess, can't remember), so I associate it with her. Very close to "tosser" which is an insult here.

9. Bethan - Don't like at all, and don't like Bethany either (I don't like Beth, tbh).

GoofyTheHero Wed 21-Dec-16 00:23:10

Very very similar to my list for both DD's!

Love Juliet and Anna
Really like Alice, Elizabeth, Florence, Georgia and Tessa
Least favourites (although don't dislike) are Martha and Bethan
