Am due a little lady in 5 weeks time and we have been on the name Cari for a while (we are Welsh) but no one knows we are having a girl, so I can't get an opinion on it...

Other than that my husband likes Rita and we already have a Jude - so I quite like Lucy to go with a Beatles theme..

Middle name will be Willow - what do you think? Cari, Rita or Lucy?

Many thanks in advance!!!

Cari like Carrie

I don't like Rita or Lucy so I'd say Cari.

Like Rita and Lucy.

Apologies if you know this already, OP, but Rita is also a Beatles theme.

Lyrics + music for "Lovely Rita" below.

If you end up with 2 daughters, you can use both names grin

Ahh yes - I did know that! Thanks 😊 forgot that was why it was in there!!

Not Rita!

Cari is lovely. How popular is it where you live, as I'd veto Lucy on popularity grounds.

I can't get on board with Rita, sorry.

I love the name Lucy, or Lacey/Layla?

Redpramlady Fri 21-Apr-17 17:52:21

Lucy is my fav then Carrie 👍

floraeasy Fri 21-Apr-17 17:52:22

Well, OP, I now have a Lovely Rita ear worm grin

Rita is my current favourite if this baby comes out a girl!

NappingRabbit Fri 21-Apr-17 18:24:27

Lucy by a mile for me. Rita is a bit old lady for my taste.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Fri 21-Apr-17 18:29:10

Rita is a fine name, however, Lucy Willow goes best together.

FenellaMaxwellsPony Fri 21-Apr-17 18:30:39

Just Cari, or Cariad or Carys either Cari for short? Because I LOVE Cariad

Jooni Fri 21-Apr-17 18:42:24

Cari or Lucy for me. Do you live in Wales? If not, Cari might get frequent misspellings but it is a pretty name. Lucy feels like the "safest" choice but it's also very nice.

I know you didn't ask for suggestions but I think you might like Nancy/Nansi?

YoungYolandaYorgensen39 Fri 21-Apr-17 19:09:43

Cari is lovely.

Astralabe Fri 21-Apr-17 19:25:01

Lucy Willow sounds so drippy! Sorry but you did ask.. Rita - a fab feisty name. Love it.

MiniMaxi Fri 21-Apr-17 19:28:23

Cari or Lucy!

Lucy is lovely!!

I don't really like Cari (but Cara is awesome).

Rita isn't my cup of tea.

LadyCallandraDaviot Fri 21-Apr-17 20:20:11

I know a Rita, spelled Reita - I know messing about with spellings is not approved of on here, but I think this one is good, it makes the name more complete, somehow.

Cari or Rita/Reita for me OP, Lucy is a bit droopy sounding, and the most popular by far.

KoalaDownUnder Fri 21-Apr-17 20:22:57

Rita is awful.

Lucy is a bit wet and overused.

I'd go for Cari.
