Hi, I'm due a baby girl any day now but really struggling with names. I have a daughter called Lucy and want a traditional name that goes well with this. I would like opinions on the names - Sophie and Amy.
Sophie - too popular?
Amy - too plain?
New name suggestions welcome too please.

Thank you.

What about Alice?
Just throwing it in!
You'll get a better idea what suits when you see her.

Sophie and Amy are both lovely. I think Amy's due a comeback. Sophie never really went away.

How about Elizabeth? Classic and lots of lovely nickname options.

Sophie and Amy are both lovely. Another one which comes to mind which you might like is Clara.

Sophia is nicer than Sophie, I think.

Amy is nice.

Lucy and...

Love your suggestions and those of PPs. I don't think Amy is a plain name at all.

Also want to throw Anna and Emma into the mix as options.
Congratulations on your LO!

Personally I really dislike Amy. I just find it very twee and nasal, not sure why. Also sounds bad with Lucy - too many 'ees' going on.

I like lots of other traditional names (though wouldn't choose myself) like Charlotte, Emma, Juliet, Mary.

I quite like Sophie and don't actually know that many little ones, though lots my age (born in 70s).

I think Alice too! Lucy and Alice sounds very sweet.

MerryMarigold Sun 08-Jan-17 20:56:58

Oops, not Mary with Lucy - though it is a classic.

Thank you everyone. It's so nice to hear opinions from other people. Some of them names were on our shortlist - think I will put them back in 😊 Does Alice sound too posh with Lucy?

Another vote for Alice & Lucy

Classy rather than posh IMO

Hannah, Sara or Leah would be my picks.

Yika Sun 08-Jan-17 22:58:17

Sophie and Amy are both lovely names. What about Sarah, Sara, Nina, Catherine?

Or Miranda, Elise, Natalia, Eve, Isabel?

I've always loved the name Alice but can't get past the association with the remastered Smokie track 'Who the Fuck is Alice'.
