So baby is being evicted via section next week. We've had boy's name sorted from the start but it has taken until now to get even a shortlist for girls.
I tend to avoid names that will inevitably be shortened so the other DC don't really have nicknames and I've ruled out names I love just coz I can't stand the shortened versions. Our two DDs have very feminine names which I love so I'd like the same if this is a girl. My ideal is girly, short and not too common.
So the list is: Lila Penelope Halle
I love Lila, ticks all my boxes. DH likes Halle but I'm not sure. A bit like Holly which I hate. And Ali which is meh.
We both like Penelope and as nicknames go I can live with Penny but I'd like to avoid nicknames for as long as possible and Penelope is so long I doubt this is possible. Have read on hear that Poppy is a nickname for Penelope. Seems like a stretch but I do love Poppy, although not enough to use as a stand alone name.
So thought? Advice? Favourite? I think I'm hoping DH will cave and agree to Lila!
