Would love opinions/votes on the following nanes for second DD:

- Dorothea (nn Dot/ Thea)
- Tabitha (nn Tabby)
- Betty

Thank you!

I give all of those names 10/10! Very hard to choose between them. Erm, I think Dorothea. 😊

Love Dorothea with Dot/Dotty as nn. Not keen on Thea as I find it very insipid.

Betty is great.

Tabitha is not my cup of tea and dislike how Tabby sounds. Too feline.

What's your DD1 called?

Kazzawazza69 Sun 12-Nov-17 21:01:54

I like Tabitha/Tabby. Not at all keen on the other 2 I’m afraid.

Leeds2 Sun 12-Nov-17 21:02:43

I prefer Thea.

Not keen on Dorothea, prefer Dorothy. Tabitha makes me think of a cat. I like Elizabeth, Betty as a nn.

They sound lovely for a cat

Misslemon01 Sun 12-Nov-17 21:06:33

They’re all lovely, but my vote goes to Tabitha smile

DD1's name is Ivy. I really love Dorothea I think but can't work out whether it's a bit too old fashioned - I would hate her to dislike her name later in life....

MsP0b Sun 12-Nov-17 21:13:06

Dorothea is the main character in Middlemarch, I think she would get asked a lot if she was named after that Dorothea. Maybe that’s your inspiration?
I like Tabitha best.

Petalflowers Sun 12-Nov-17 21:13:18

Love Dorothea.

However,,I think Betty goes best with Ivy.

All three names are fab.

I do love them all but in this case, Betty grabs me by the heartstrings. smile

Dorothea = 2/10
Tabitha = 1/10
Betty = 3/10. I prefer Betsy 5/10.

FluffyMcCloud Sun 12-Nov-17 21:25:14

LOVE Dorothea

SummerRoberts Sun 12-Nov-17 21:29:42

I love them all! Good choices. I think I like Betty the best but all three are great.

AnyaMoondial Sun 12-Nov-17 21:56:39

Yes Dorothea for me too. Nn Dotty when she is small smile

CakeRattleandRoll Sun 12-Nov-17 23:32:12

Love Tabitha.

Buntysoven Sun 12-Nov-17 23:38:46

Ivy and Betty! 😍

Ivy and Betty is so sweet
Love the other names as well
I know a ivy and Elsie and I love those name choices

Don't like Dorothea or Betty at all. People will always assume a Betty is Elizabeth too.

camdentown17 Mon 13-Nov-17 06:22:35

smileWithout a doubt Dorothea. I love it!

- Dorothea (nn Dot/ Thea) _LOVE this. Really nice name and nickname.
- Tabitha (nn Tabby) - Like it, it's elegant and can imagine a kick-ass girl with this name.
- Betty - I like this name, but for me it's too cutesy.

Love Tabitha, but think Betty and Ivy sound better together
