30 weeks pregnant with dd2 and me and dh literally can’t agree on a name, he likes Arden and Thalia? We already have Lily-Rose (4). I kind of like Sienna but it seems so popular now days?

I don't like either Arden or Thalia, sorry. Sienna isn't particularly popular but I think it's much nicer.

Thalia is lovely.

Sienna is dreadful.

I couldn’t pronounce Th properly until I was about 12, so would have been introducing myself as Failure.

Arden goes better.

Thalia is a lovely name, go with this one smile

Thalia goes very well, though I do like Sienna.

Thalia is lovely

The Th wouldn't be a problem would it? Or am I wrong about how Thalia would be pronounced? I would have thought it's said as Talia rather than Th-alia.

It's a lovely name!

I’ve heard it as Thalia with a th, but it is one of those names people pronounce differently.

Thalia is awful

Bakerbel Thu 17-May-18 16:03:50

Sienna is lovely

I think Arden and Thalia are dreadful.

I quite like both (although how are you pronouncing Thalia?)
I like how androgynous and cool Arden is smile

Sienna is a very sweet name too. It was 28 in most popular baby names in England+Wales last year, if that would put you off though.

Bakerbel Thu 17-May-18 16:10:35

I have never once met a sienna and don’t consider it very popular

I have only heard Thalia with a T sound at the beginning.

I have to say I was puzzled by your Op at first as I thought Arden sounded liek a boys name.
Don't like it I'm afraid.

Thalia (or Talia, you don't need the h) is nice, means blossom I think so very nice for a baby at this time of year.
Sienna is nice too.

neither are my naming style, but both sound nice even to me!

Not compared to the likes of Sophia or isabella which you see all over

Arden is the name of a council estate in Glasgow. It's not a name I'd choose for my baby.

MumofBoysx2 Thu 17-May-18 16:14:10

Not too keen on Sienna as it sounds like Senna, and Arden, sounds like Harden. So I suppose Talia. I like Clarice (prounounced Clariss), that is what we would have called our boy if he were a girl.

Can't stand Arden but I'm from South Warks which is probably why. I don't really like Thalia either (would pronoince it Talia). I would say Sienna matches Lily-Rose in popularity.

The one Arden I know is a middle aged man! I prefer Malia to Thalia, think that is one of Barack Obama’s girls. Or Thea is nice but similar. Personally not a fan of Sienna.

Thalia reminds me of what you get in an Indian

What about Eden as an alternative?
