Our daughter is 4 and a half weeks old and we are still trying to finalise her name.

Her middle name is definitely Fern and this is our list for first name:

Thanks smile

I love Eliana. Matilda is super popular...

I prefer Laila (or Láilá).

I like Eliana best as a full name but she is quite likely to become Ellie or Ella which I am not so keen on and are not so pretty or unusual.

Matilda and Leila are both lovely too but much more popular (the spelling Layla was 35th in the 2015 list so although different on paper she may be one of many still when you take into account the different spellings. Depends if that bothers you.

Eliana is beautiful but she will become Ellie/Elle/Ella - not a problem if you like those names!

Love Leila. Matilda is very VERY popular at the moment.

Leila Fern is beautiful

I like Matilda best and Eliana least.

I like Leila but prefer the spelling Layla.

I really like Eliana but don't like Ellie which could be a potential nn so on that basis Leila is my favourite.

Matilda Fern is lovely

deluxetrolley Sat 22-Apr-17 23:22:56

Leila (or maybe Lila?!)

I don't like Eliana.
Love Matilda, but I think Leila Fern, sounds best.

Matilda Fern is lovely but Fern is so pretty could that not be the first name?

1) Matilda (love)
2) Leila (really like - would spell it Layla though, like the song)
3) Eliana (pretty, but a but flowery maybe)?

Eliana could have Lia as a nickname if you don't want Ellie.

Eliana Fern - gorgeous!

Leila. Lovely name, and I like that spelling too.

Tilly and tilda are super cute as is matty !

Then Leila - nice but the Ines I know are all called Leils - which personally I don't like

Eliana is a bit fussy - I love the nickname Ellie though however if popularity bothers you this may be an issue smile
