All lovely smile

I prefer Beatrix to Beatrice and I love Constance. The others are ok.

Awwlookatmybabyspider Sat 22-Apr-17 20:25:16

Beatrice or Felicity.
Others are awful, sorry

floatingfrog Sat 22-Apr-17 20:27:01

Not really liking any sorry.

smileygrapefruit Sat 22-Apr-17 20:28:15

Awful, spider ? Bit strong don't ya think?!

SharonStrzelecki Sat 22-Apr-17 20:32:27

I had a lot of those on my shortlist and my dd2 has one of those names. I love felicity and jemima, not so keen on Beatrix and Harriet.

Tabitha and Harriet are my favourites.

Squidgling Sat 22-Apr-17 20:51:59

I like Constance and Harriet. Jemima makes me think puddleduck and Tabitha makes me think of a cat so not keen on those 2. I have no real opinion on Beatrice or Felicity - they are nice enough but not my taste. Don't like the look of the name Beatrix but I'm not sure why so that's not very helpful sorry!

wooster16 Sat 22-Apr-17 20:54:16

Tabitha and Jemima are my picks from that list smile

MitzyLeFrouf Sat 22-Apr-17 20:55:56

I love Tabitha. Harriet would be my least fave.

17caterpillars1mouse Sat 22-Apr-17 21:37:32

I like all but Tabitha which is a bit catty for me. Can I suggest Talitha?

Love Constance

I know 1 Beatrice, 2 Beatrix's, 1 Felicity, 1 Jemima and 1 Harriet. All 1 or under

I adore Constance, it's beautiful.

Harriet, Felicity and Beatrice are all nice. Prefer Beatrice to Beatrix.

Jemima, while a sweet name, will always be Puddleduck to me.

I used to have a wonderful cat called Tabitha and I just can't see it as a name for a person though I know it is. It just says much loved tabby cat to me.

HeteronormativeHaybales Sat 22-Apr-17 22:03:18

Not keen on Jemima or Tabitha, like the others (but Beatrice, not Beatrix). Constance and Felicity are my favourites, and I would hazard that Constance is the rarest of all of them.

NessaNuNu Sat 22-Apr-17 22:08:40

Love them all, however I do think of Jemima Puddleduck and we once had a cat called Tabitha.

My DS was going to be a Harriet, had he been a girl.

Also love Verity smile

vitaminC Sat 22-Apr-17 22:14:28

I love all of these.
Prefer Beatrice to Beatrix. Actually, I'm not keen on the -ix ending in general - it makes me think of dominatrix!

If I had to choose, I think my favourite from your list is Constance.

saturdaysaturday Sat 22-Apr-17 22:19:49

I know a Connie (Constance) actually I know two, both in their 20s.

I don't like Tabitha, def too catty for me. Can you say the siblings names??

Sophronia Sat 22-Apr-17 22:44:49

Love Jemima, Tabitha and Constance. Like Beatrice and Harriet. Not keen on Felicity.

AdaColeman Sat 22-Apr-17 22:49:03

Constance and Felicity are the two that shine out for me, both so lovely.

My least favourites are Jemima and Tabitha.

chipsnmayo Sat 22-Apr-17 22:53:56

Love Harriet and Felicity. Both timeless and classy.

Jemima is ok.

Not keen on Tabitha.

I've always had an irrational dislike for Beatrice, however I don't mind Beatrix.

Hate Constance, seems quite old fashioned to me.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 23-Apr-17 09:46:56

Love Harriet, Jemima and Tabitha.
Do like Connie.
Dislike Felicity.
Beatrix is nicer than Beatrice, as I like Trixie for a nick name.

Oly5 Sun 23-Apr-17 09:55:08

Connie and Beatrice
Don't like Harriet or Tabitha

MadameJosephine Sun 23-Apr-17 10:06:29

My favourites are Constance and Felicity by a mile, both beautiful names and I love Connie and Lissy as nn.

Beatrice and Harriet are nice but don't really float my boat.

I really don't like Beatrix, Jemima or
Tabitha

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sun 23-Apr-17 10:07:45

I love Jemima.

The rest are fine.
