When name do you like best? Which least? For a child growing up in the UK (London to be precise).

Etta, Effie, Anya, Nina, Iona, Eva, Ella

Effie and Etta are my favourites smile
Eva is my least favourite - it's really common (as in popular!) where I am, along with Eve and Evie

Really don’t like Nina at all.
Love Anya.

I love them all. I love Ettie too - cross between Effie and Etta.

You can't have Anya grin That's my of my dd's names.

I love Nina! Not many Ninas around!

I love Effie

Looked at them all and I think Anya and Iona look the best written down, lovely names also. which sound best with your surname? Say them out loud to yourself.

Nina - lovely name!

happytobemrsg Fri 09-Feb-18 10:48:59

I don't like Nina. I love Effie

Etta and Iona

I should have said, I like Nina best.
I like Effie least.

Etta is nice but doesn't seem to go with a lot of surnames. For example Etta Ball sounds like you're saying ate a ball, albeit grammatical incorrectly.

I would also suggest Elfin.

I like Ella from your list too. smile

* Grammatically grin grin

How about Greta?

Really dislike Effie

SpottyBrolly Fri 09-Feb-18 11:23:44

I like Etta, Anya, Nina and Iona

I'm really not keen on Effie it feels very meh and fluff.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Fri 09-Feb-18 11:26:12

Favourite Iona.

All the others are ok.

17caterpillars1mouse Fri 09-Feb-18 11:26:37

Effie or Iona

Awwlookatmybabyspider Fri 09-Feb-18 11:26:47

Nina and Eva

Effie and Ella.

But I have an Ella and it is very popular (which I didn't realise!)

One of the bravest and most inspiring women I ever met was called Etta, She was a social worker and feminist and strove hard all her life to overcome crippling illness and continued to be active, loving and working right to the end of her life.

Love the musical association especially Etta, Effie and Nina, I assume that's what you were going for with those names? Although Eva and Ella are fairly common they are all lovely names, what has the most significance and flows best for you?

DiegoMadonna Fri 09-Feb-18 11:42:46

I don't like Ella. Too many el names these days.

I love Etta.

SeeKnievelHitThe17thBus Fri 09-Feb-18 11:44:24

Nina is my favourite. Effie least, it's just a bit blah and feeble.

AnyaMoondial Fri 09-Feb-18 12:07:00

Nina is my favourite but also really like Anya. Effie is my least favourite.

Meemzinha Fri 09-Feb-18 12:09:45

Anya and Iona are my favourites! I'm in the UK too... I think don't think they're overly popular either!
