Which do you prefer?

Rainbowsandflowers78 Fri 12-Jan-18 22:59:57

Sophie or Katherine
Matilda is ok too

Victoria is ok but Vicky awful and you wouldn’t be able to stop her being called that

Matilda (Matty)
then Katherine (Kate)

My order of preference is the order you have them listed in. Strong preference for the top two over the bottom two though.

I like Katherine.

Matilda is nice but really popular - I know several and their parents were all annoyed that it ended up being so popular.

Sophie was very popular for women my age so I feel as though it is a bit dated (rather like Sarah or Jenny). Plus an old boyfriend had always said that it was his favourite girl's name so that also puts me off it - however, that is my issue, not yours.

I like the name Victoria but I hate Vicky - and she will get the shortening Vicky, even if she hates it. I feel the same way about Elizabeth / Liz.

Sophie or Matilda. I just love the name Matilda, and I know a really lovely Sophie!

Matilda. But I don't like Tilly.

I like Catherine better than Katherine.

Its my name and I love it. There's not loads of Catherine's my age and your daughter would be the same smile

Katherine Matilda sounds fabulous.

Agree that Katherine Matilda is a fabulous name.

Matilda is my favourite as a stand alone though. Followed by Katherine then Victoria then Sophie.

I actually really like all of them though. Don't think you can go wrong.

Matty is a nickname fir Martha not matilda

PinkAvocado Fri 12-Jan-18 23:33:13

Matilda is lovely. I dislike Tilly but like Tilda. The Matilda’s I know either go by Matilda in full or Tilda.

DramaAlpaca Fri 12-Jan-18 23:55:08

My favourites are Katherine and Sophie.

I like all of them though.

thamesk8 Sat 13-Jan-18 00:02:14

Like all of them. Matilda is by far the most common. Victoria the least common. Victoria is my sister. Sophie is lovely but always around top 20.
Katherine is ok. I’m Catherine. But always Kate. Like the options it gives.

All of them age well.
All classics.

My pick would probably be Victoria! Tori though. Not Vicky.

ChocolateCrunch Sat 13-Jan-18 00:31:58

Sophie or Matilda

SuperBeagle Sat 13-Jan-18 01:13:16

Matilda or Katherine.

Matilda Katherine (or Matilda Kate?) or Katherine Matilda.

AnyaMoondial Sat 13-Jan-18 03:17:31

Ok I love Matilda Kate. That's it, perfect.

I know it’s popular, but it’s by far my favourite.

Any variant of Catherine I find dull.

Victoria (Tori/Vicky) and Matilda (Tilly) have crap diminutives.
