Hi, baby girl is 9 days old and still no name! This is our sort of shortlist...although we keep adding/removing from it confused
Could people say which they prefer? We are Irish BTW and I would probably prefer to have an Irish name but DH not bothered about that. Thank you!

Isobel /Isabel (i think Izzy is cute for short)
Jessica (Jess)
Aoibheann (pronounced eve een)
Elizabeth (I love Beth for short)

TheresHensInTheSkirting Tue 14-Mar-17 08:17:34

Beth for me I think.
Lovely list though.

Faves are Elizabeth and Roisin. Could have Roisin as a middle name?

I also really like Róisín Elizabeth. that's beautiful smile

I loooove Aoife! My favourite girls name was Hester but my other half thought I was mental so we agreed on Ruby 😁

PunkAssMoFo Tue 14-Mar-17 12:13:39

Róisín is beautiful.

wigglesrock Tue 14-Mar-17 12:28:17

From your list I really like Isobel, Elizabeth and I love Jess but not Jessica, I'm not sure why but I'm not fussed on the ica sound. Roisin and Niamh I find dated but that's just because of where I live and kids I grew up with. Roise - I know 2 primary school aged ones - I just find it a bit dull, I find Rose dull too, I think it's just noun names I'm not fussed on. Aoife is a lovely name but it's really popular where I am, tripping over them grin. Congratulations thanks brew

Another vote for Elizabeth or Roisin. Both beautiful names.

Congratulations op! flowers

BaymaxismyHero Tue 14-Mar-17 14:51:15

Love Alice

bananaqueen Tue 14-Mar-17 14:53:21

I love Aoife
2nd choice would be Elizabeth (Beth)
Let us know which you choose smile

ohnoitsagruffalo Tue 14-Mar-17 14:53:46

Thanks everyone for your opinions,really helpful! smile leaning towards Roisin Elizabeth now, just need to persuade DH grin

Sunshineandlaughter Tue 14-Mar-17 15:00:36

We have a Niamh :-) so biased but all of your names are beUtiful.

I've only boys, but I wanted Nell short for Elinor if I'd had a girl. Sob.
