Which would you choose?

Dislike the other two.

Georgina or Jemima.

Felicity is too frilly.

The other two are lovely.

Georgina, just like the sound of it and Georgie is such a cute nickname.

Ecureuil Fri 24-Mar-17 06:47:38

Felicity, but I'm biased smile

I love Jemima!

Tinnie88 Fri 24-Mar-17 07:04:48

Georgina, although I prefer Georgia. But Georgina is a good strong name whilst still being feminine.

I knew a Felicity once though who was a constant over-enthusiastic annoyance so that name is ruined for me. Jemima I just think duck.

Jemima- infantile.

Love Jemima and Felicity. Georgina sounds a little dated to me but could be because I went to school with a couple.

Jemima, though I do like Georgina !

I would be worried about 'puddleduck'...

I think Georgina is a fab name because it ticks lots of boxes: Georgina is a good classic name, Georgie is a cool nickname, and there are other nickname options too with George and Gina.

I quite like Felicity (Flick) too.

Felicity or Georgina.

Jemima, reminds me of Play School however, I am ancient, so ignore me wink

Georgina is lovely and gives you plenty of scope.

Littleballerina Fri 24-Mar-17 09:37:22

Jemima is my favourite.
I love Felicity but all of the ones that I know get shortened to Fliss which sounds awful.
Georgina is ok but prefer Georgia.

HastyShopper Fri 24-Mar-17 09:39:03

Falicity goes to 'Flick' doesn't it?

BounceBounceSplishSplash Fri 24-Mar-17 09:39:20

Jemima is my favourite though it's never really been that popular on MN previously.

I'm not keen on Georgina.

Yogagirl123 Fri 24-Mar-17 09:41:00

I love Felicity, can I throw Verity into the mix! Another name I loved.

Ecureuil Fri 24-Mar-17 09:57:58

My Felicity is just a Felicity, no shortenings. She corrects anyone who calls her Fliss.

However, the Georgina I know always gets called Georgia mistakenly. She was born at a time when Georgia was an extremely popular name though, so it might not be as much of an issue for a Georgina born in 2017.

I'm a Felicity! And think the name is the biggest gift my parents gave me. The Latin root (happiness) has morphed into romance languages with lovely meanings (felicidad', felicitatione etc) that Europeans love to call me by my full name. However, they are the only ones! Unlike other Felicity's, I have had Flip since I was about 4, which has become: Flipperdoodle, Flipobama, Fliperoonie, Flipster, Flipsider, Flippers, you get the idea, I have more nicknames I can remember, And I love it. I've been only met about 3 others, but it is very recognisable and lovely meaning to boot. Good luck.

1) Jemima (love it)!
2) Felicity (really like this too, though not quite as much as Jemima)
3) Georgina (not keen on Georgina or Georgia personally, but I do like Georgiana)

I love Felicity.
