Sophie
Rose

Thanks!

Not keen on Piper but I like the others.

Phillipa is my favorite because I like the idea of Pip or Pippa as a nn.

They're all so pretty! Especially Annabel and Sophie smile

@BrokenBattleDroid Philippa is my favourite too but i'm not keen on the nickname Pippa. Can't explain why!

I'm not a huge fan of Sophie after someone said it was just like "soapy" but don't have strong feelings. I prefer Rosanna to Rose and I probably like Annabel and Philippa best. Good choices!

Not a fan of Piper, Sophie a bit boring/overused, but like all the others! I think Annabel is the nicest smile

BrokenBattleDroid Tue 05-Dec-17 17:47:59

I think you could use Piper as a nn for Phillipa at a push. Would that work?

AKH123 Tue 05-Dec-17 17:50:20

@BrokenBattleDroid Yes!! I would love to do that!

Annabel is my favourite
Followed by Sophie and Phillipa
Piper is nice but not my style
Rose feels a bit full to me. I think because it's every other child's middle name

I love rose but find it too short so called our daughter Rosanna..

I like annabel too

AnyaMoondial Tue 05-Dec-17 17:54:14

I like them all, Rose is my favourite. Sophie is nice but has been veeeeeeeery popular for a long time.

I love Annabelle piper and rose 🌹

ChocolateCrunch Tue 05-Dec-17 18:05:24

Annabel, Sophie and Rose are the ones I would choose. I don't know any Annabels, but quite a few Sophies and Roses.

I don't like Philippa or Sophie, but Annabel, Piper and Rose are lovely!

Navegante Tue 05-Dec-17 18:42:12

I like Philippa and Sophie.

Meeep Tue 05-Dec-17 18:44:32

I only like Rose!

Annabel - really like
Philippa - love
Piper - like
Sophie - not keen; think it’s overdone and have met a disproportionate number of horrible Sophies for some reason
Rose - love - think this is my favourite

All so pretty- great choices! Philippa would give the most options for nns. I have a soft spot for Rose, you could always give it a longer middle name so the child has options?

Whythesnoring Tue 05-Dec-17 20:09:44

Rose or Piper are my faves smile

pipilangstrumpf Tue 05-Dec-17 20:19:31

Rose! Beautiful and underused.

Sophie and Annabel are quite common.

guestofclanmackenzie Tue 05-Dec-17 21:01:28

A lovely close friend of mine was called Phillppa.. And she had a gorgeous daughter called Roseanna.

Sadly Philippa passed away a couple of years ago as she lost her battle with cancer.

So I am unashamedly biased when I say I love those two names!

PinkFlamingo888 Tue 05-Dec-17 21:02:11

I love Piper! The others are nice too but I’d definitely choose Piper!

Smoliver Tue 05-Dec-17 21:14:16

I like Annabel, Rose and Sophie (although the last one is my name, so I'm slightly biased grin )

yikesanotherbooboo Tue 05-Dec-17 21:19:27

I love Annabelle and Phillippa ... not keen on Piper at all, the other two are very pretty but just not my favourites

SantaStuckInTheChimney Tue 05-Dec-17 21:31:46

My favourite is Piper. It's lovely and different.
