I like:

Dislike:

I love Monica, it's lovely and not over used.
Also like Meredith and Juliet.
Sorry, really don't like the others.

Love Daphne! It was our name for 5 month old ds had he been a girl.

Other than that - Meredith.

I like all of these except Erica (find it a little old fashioned) and Lorelei (bit out there). My niece is Daphne so love that one smile

Afreshstartplease Thu 23-Feb-17 08:03:12

Only like Sadie

junebirthdaygirl Thu 23-Feb-17 08:05:40

Like Judith and Erica. Two great names

Awwlookatmybabyspider Thu 23-Feb-17 08:06:44

Only like Erica Monica Lorelei.
The others, Judith especially are woeful

Purplebluebird Thu 23-Feb-17 08:12:13

India
Juliet

the only two I like unfortunately!

SquedgieBeckenheim Thu 23-Feb-17 08:13:16

Meredith and Lorelei were on our list! So I like those.
Really don't like Judith, Monica, Erica or Daphne.

flumpybear Thu 23-Feb-17 08:15:16

Only like Sadie - I used to like laurelei after a Marilyn Monroe film but that was when I was a kid .... it's too fussy now

NapQueen Thu 23-Feb-17 08:16:50

Juliet for me. It was on our list.

Bluntness100 Thu 23-Feb-17 08:20:45

I don't like Monica or Sadie. Monica because of the series friends, my mind immediately thinks of her and Sadie, I think is quite a harsh sounding name. Apologies to anyone with those names.😞

Pemba Thu 23-Feb-17 08:34:53

I like Mara, Meredith, Juliet and Sadie. The others not so much.

avaj Thu 23-Feb-17 09:22:43

Mara and Sadie are both lovely, pretty but strong sounding to me.
I like Jude on its own, but not Judith.

ExpectoPatronummmm Thu 23-Feb-17 09:48:04

Fave is Sadie

Lorelie is horrible.

MrsHughesCarson Thu 23-Feb-17 09:50:48

Hate Lorelei, love Daphne. The others are ok.

Aebj Thu 23-Feb-17 09:54:33

I stopped at India as I think it's a great name for a girl

goldenrachita Thu 23-Feb-17 10:26:46

Mara- I'd assume Irish background, quite nice.
India- Used to love this and it's pretty, but I think it's a cliché unless you have a particular connection to /interest in India the country. You'd have to at least have been there!
Meredith- very Welsh
Daphne- quite an intellectual kind of name
Juliet- I prefer the spelling Juliette as it seems more feminine but Juliet is an academic's kind of name
Judith (Jude)- My least favourite on this list, but my taste is more 'pretty' names
Sadie- a little bit 'posh hippy', sort of same genre as India
Erica- I used to think it was ugly but I now think it's cool, also academic sounding
Monica- Sounds Italian/Spanish to me.
Lorelai- A different genre to your other names but nice. It's spelt Lorelei though and I'd assume a child names Lorelai had parents who couldn't spell (again, sorry!)

As a whole I'd say the list (exept India, Lorelei, Sadie and Monica) tends to sound 'intellectual' rather than girly. I'd assume the mother was the academic/feminist type who refused to buy anything pink for her girls and hopes they'll go into politics! ;)

I only like Juliet.

KoalaDownUnder Thu 23-Feb-17 10:32:17

I like Mara, India, Juliet and Sadie.

Really dislike Meredith, Judith, Monica, Erica and Lorelai.

Ordinarily Thu 23-Feb-17 11:56:53

I like Juliet, Erica and Meredith best.

Mara - OK, prefer Marla or Cara for some reason!
India - reminds me of a well-known person I don't like
Meredith - quite like this, sounds a bit mysterious
Daphne - I knew a really lovely Daphne and the meaning is nice
Juliet - fabulous name, classic, literary, not overused
Judith (Jude) - OK but a little hard sounding
Sadie - OK but again sounds slightly hard
Erica - yes, I like this, it's a bit quirky
Monica - a bit "Friends" but I do like it and it's fairly unusual
Lorelai - Don't like

OpalIridescence Thu 23-Feb-17 12:01:59

Not keen on Meredith or Daphne

Like Sadie and Juliet

Love love love Lorelei wink
