So I thought we had settled on Juliet Elizabeth but DH has tonight declared that he prefers Imogen. Thoughts? Juliet or Imogen? Thanks x

Juliet - beautiful.

Both are lovely! Think I prefer Imogen though.

I like both but prefer Juliet.

Juliet here too. Imogen is a bit more popular I think but not overly so.

Do you prefer Jules/Julie or Immy as a nickname because chances are that is what she will become. They're both beautiful names though, you can't go wrong.

Juliet is less popular but gorgeous. Imogen is also nice but popular. I'd go for Juliet.

Juliet. I love both though.

My DD Juliet is Juliet definitely not Jules/ Julie (she's 24) and DS2's girlfriend (21) is Imogen not Immy.

Imogen is lovely but I still prefer Juliet.

Juliet! It's a beautiful name. I'm not keen on Imogen, it doesn't sound pretty and I've never met one that I like .

Prefer Juliet as a full name, but prefer Immy as a nickname. No help, I know.

I don't think either will inevitably be shortened though, so I'd still vote for Juliet.

The potential NN 'Immy' really puts me off Imogen (although I like both 'Ginny' and 'Jenny').

Juliet, as long as it's pronounced with the stress on the first syllable, ie not like Juliette.

If you'd be pronouncing it like Juliette I prefer Imogen.

Juliet much nicer than Imogen.

However I think the exact opposite of dramaalpaca and prefer the French pronunciation with a soft J and emphasis on 'et' as though it were Juliette.

Imogen but then I'm biased.wink
