is that pronounced as Lee-Ah or Lay-Ah?

youngestisapsycho Tue 11-Apr-17 13:59:37

There are a lot of Evas around...

But prefer the other 'L' names like Lara and Lola.

MrsChopper Tue 11-Apr-17 14:02:19

Not too keen on either sorry! but I'd pick Eva out of the two.

Leia is cute but the Star Wars joke will never end....

youngestisapsycho pronounced Lay-ah.

ThroughThickAndThin01 I love Lola but already given that name to a pet smile

tatatelle star wars joke doesn't bother us as princess Leia is seen as a strong, feisty and admirable character. Incidentally due date is 5th May (so may well land on star wars day).

And I'd assume you to be a cool Star Wars fan

Lots of Evas and Evies around, but fine if you're not bothered by that. I prefer sound of Leia, but would maybe change it to Laila.

Leia. Especially if she arrives on Star Wars Day!

Another vote for Leia :-)

I was surprised to hear there are lot's of Eva's as I don't know any where we live, although there are a few Evie's and Ava's.

I thought the voting might produce a clear winner, but it appears torn.
