What do you think of these? And perhaps a combination of two of them for a name and middle name.

I like Sophie , not keen on the others

Love Beatrice.

AragornsManlyStubble Sun 08-Jan-17 19:04:31

Beatrice Grace is very pretty.

I love Thea but it doesn't flow right for me with your other choices.

Freeatlast2017 Sun 08-Jan-17 19:20:11

I like Beatrice very much.

MollyHuaCha Sun 08-Jan-17 19:25:58

Love them all, esp Clara!

The pronunciation of Thea is ambiguous. Could be any of Thee-ah, Thay-ah, Tee-ah or Tay-ah.

I like Beatrice and Thea for first name choices from your list. I find the name Sophie really dull tbh - there are loads of small Sophie's running about.

Sophie Grace

Sophronia Sun 08-Jan-17 19:39:20

Beatrice Clara

Thanks all. Thea = I was going for Thee-a....i hadn't realised that there were so many ways to say it. Perhaps that's a good reason to cross that one off the list. I don't know any little Sophie's but I'd like a name that isn't well used.

Thea Grace or Beatrice Grace.
Clara has been and gone and Sophie/Sophia is incredibly common and has been for years- my DD(17) has 4 in her small year group and my DN(4) has two in his class of 18!

Autumnsunshinebaby Sun 08-Jan-17 20:07:26

AlwaysTeaTime that is so popular! I think I must have been living under a rock! How long ago did Clara come and go?

AlwaysTeaTime Sun 08-Jan-17 20:56:26

Probably about 7 years ago? Or at least where I live. Here it's one of those 'trendy' vintage names that people chose because it was different for a bit and then it became quite popular, especially as a middle name, so now people seem to have moved on to more French sounding names. It may be a regional thing though so if you don't know any little Clara's I would go for it as it's still a very pretty name

Autumnsunshinebaby Sun 08-Jan-17 21:18:33

AlwaysTeaTime Where abouts are you? I've not heard of any Clara's since I was about 7 but I will be on the look out now!

Stonewash Sun 08-Jan-17 22:01:14

That's a really nice shortlist smile

My favourites would be

Sophie Beatrice
Clara Sophie
Grace Thea

I like Thea and Sophie.
I've never come across anyone pronouncing it any way other than "theee - ah" confused

AlwaysTeaTime Sun 08-Jan-17 22:54:36

I'm in Wiltshire- I think it may be a southern thing as it's not exactly in the top 20 names so if you don't know any I'm sure you're safe to use it. No way of knowing what will be popular in your child's school/birth year or what will become more popular! DD2 (15) is an Esme and is the only one in her school because it was outside the top 500 for her year, but now it is really popular and we know loads of little ones. So just pick what you like (but not Sophie as that's been popular forever)

AbernathysFringe Sun 08-Jan-17 22:57:04

I like Clara and Beatrice.
Thea I find a bit bookish
Sophie a bit overused
Grace always struck me as too no-frills. One syllable, Gr doesn't look attractive somehow.

Nottalotta Sun 08-Jan-17 22:59:52

Where I am there are loads of Sophie and Graces. They are nice name but overused.

I like Clara, I have it on my shortlist. There are none that I know of locally.of any age.

MollyWho Mon 09-Jan-17 07:03:12

Love Thea, and would have pronounced it same as you OP. It's on my list but goes terribly with my surname envy

Cosmicglitterpug Mon 09-Jan-17 07:11:16

Beatrice Clara Grace.

Enidblyton1 Mon 09-Jan-17 07:29:30

All lovely names, but I would avoid Sophie if you don't want anything too popular. So many Sophie's everywhere... Grace also seems to be popular around here.
Beatrice, Clara and Thea are all lovely

Sophie Grace.
