I am quite a fan of the names felicity and Evangeline however I feel that they are rather outgoing names and I'm not sure which to choose, my DH doesn't seem to be too bothered after we had our first child Alistair please help me with your personal opinions

Love Evangeline

Not keen on Felicity, just because I knew an awful one who went by flick

Evangeline, beautiful name

Another vote for Evangeline!
Always think of Felicity Kendall!!

Thanks catdogcat I really appreciate your advice

Well personally Evangeline makes me think of Evangelical Christians and Felicity sounds a bit pretentious... What can they be shortened to???

user1485199774 Mon 23-Jan-17 19:50:09

Johnlapsleyparlabane thankyou I really appreciate that and completely agree with you

user1485199774 Mon 23-Jan-17 19:51:00

Ilovecaindingle I am slowly changing my opinion and leaning towards Evangeline

user1485199774 Mon 23-Jan-17 19:51:45

Staceypregnant well they can be shortened to flick or Evie

I prefer felicity, I went to school with one who was fliss.

The 'g' sound in Evangeline puts me off, similar to the g in Imogen

I love Evangeline. Felicity is nice too, but to me it sounds a bit dated.

Evangeline is lovely! Suppose you could shorten Felicity to Lissy?

user1485199774 Mon 23-Jan-17 19:55:17

Herroyalnotness I see how the pronunciation can put you off

user1485199774 Mon 23-Jan-17 19:55:55

Alwaysthewinner I agree smile

user1485199774 Mon 23-Jan-17 19:56:42

Amysmummy12345 I am definitely loving the name Evangeline even more now and my DH agrees

They don't have to be shortened (speaking as someone with one of these names for their DD!) I have an Evangeline.

I especially love the way it rolls off Colin Firths tongue in Nanny McFee 😍

user1485199774 Mon 23-Jan-17 19:58:38

Purplepandas I have to say Evangeline is definitely a beautiful name and I am quite the fan

Evangeline is a beautiful name. I wouldn't have been brave enough to use it myself (judgy family who would've been a bit hmm about it) but it's really lovely.

greeeen Mon 23-Jan-17 20:03:22

Both lovely names but I prefer Evangeline.

user1485199774 Mon 23-Jan-17 20:03:52
