I'm currently 28 weeks and OH doesn't want to discuss names until 31 weeks hmm

I'm pretty much sold on my choice of the boy's name: Hugo. Fingers crossed OH likes it!

However, I'm convinced we're having a girl and I just can't decide! I want something a little underused and being a teacher makes the whole naming progress even harder than it actually is..

So what are your thoughts on my list? Can you suggest anything else I might like?
Thanks in advance smile

Mila is my favourite from your list. I've never taught one. I'm not keen on Tabatha but Mumsnet loves it.

MelinaMercury Tue 25-Apr-17 22:51:33

I love Eliza but Tabitha is lovely too smile

Etta sounds like a nickname to me.
Arianna makes me think of that annoying screechy Disney girl, Grande?
Aurelia makes me think areola, no idea why.
Mila is nice.

Ive loved tabitha since watching bewitched as a
Child, so well before

I normally HATE "mumsnet names" so nothing to do with the popular names here!

CreamCheez Tue 25-Apr-17 22:56:06

I love Eliza, but it would be changed to Ellie, which there are millions of...

Paperdove87 Tue 25-Apr-17 23:04:40

I think Etta is a beautiful name!

Like all your others too, except to me, Tabitha is a cat's name! smile

I like them all except Arianna and Tabitha, which I hate.

Henrietta with nickname Etta

Eliza is well used

Philippa or Mildred (milly)?

Awwlookatmybabyspider Tue 25-Apr-17 23:29:54

I only like Eliza out of your list.
Other suggestions.

My daughter is Mackenzie Amelia Grace smile And whenever I'm asked her name (I obviously only say her first name!) we're usually told what a beautiful name it is! X

Love Mila.

Love Eliza and Tabitha. Not keen on the rest.

DramaAlpaca Wed 26-Apr-17 00:33:29

I like Arianna best, then Aurelia and Eliza. The others aren't my thing.

Buntysoven Wed 26-Apr-17 00:35:41

I prefer Arianne to Arianna as it's less frilly. That would be my favourite

Mila and Tabitha are my favourites.

Henrietta NN Etta was on my girl list, so love that! Also like Tabitha and Eliza (know quite a few and none get Ellie btw). Don't like Arianna or Mila or Aurelia much (don't hate them, just don't love them).

Other names on my girl list (had 4 boys so didn't use any) were Eleanor, Genevieve and Iona.

Love Hugo!

MelinaMercury Wed 26-Apr-17 07:14:42

How about Allana, Elouise, Elodie, Francesca, Carys, Orla(ith), Delilah?

CakeRattleandRoll Wed 26-Apr-17 07:24:53

My favourite is Tabitha, love it.

IHeartKingThistle Wed 26-Apr-17 07:32:14

I love Tabitha. Most DHs hate it in my experience though!

I thought Mila was short for Milena.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Wed 26-Apr-17 08:06:39

I love Etta. Juliette/Marietta/Loretta/Scarlett.
Aurelia and Tabitha are also nice.
