Hi there, 39 weeks pregnant and cannot decide on a baby girl name. Narrowed it down to

1. Ella
2. Mila
3. Lia
4. Mia

Which do you think is nicer? Help! Thanks.

In order: Lia, Mia, Ella, Mila.

Ella & Mia are very popular, the other two less so.

There's no hurry to decide, you'll probably know when you meet her.

Don’t know any, if that’s a consideration

Mila, beautiful name.

I also like Mia and Ella.

Not really sure about Lia, it looks either like you can't spell Leah, or that it's Liar.

Simple, elegant.

(I'm assuming it's pronounced LEE-uh?)

Have never met one, but think it's lovely!

Leah is more classic than Lia

Mila is lovely

All fine but I like Lia best then Mia.

Isn't it spelled Leah?

Really dislike Ella, it's too cutesy.

Mia is nice.

They are all a bit bland and overused, but Mila the least so I think.

I only like Ella. I really dislike the eea eela sounds. Same with Amelia, sounds screechy (maybe just because I hear them in scottish accents though)

Lia is my favourite, though I prefer the Leah spelling. Quite unusual these days.

Mila is lovely - becoming more popular. I also like Ella but less keen on Mia.

They're all a bit mix and match, you could just stick a pin in the list and see where it lands.

Frith2013 Thu 12-Sep-19 09:46:25

Any except Lia.

AlliKaneErikson Thu 12-Sep-19 09:48:51

Lia, but I would add an E (Leia).

MissHenty Thu 12-Sep-19 10:24:44

Love Ella

GigiIdid Thu 12-Sep-19 10:37:23

All beautiful names but I like Mila the most

Nonmerci Thu 12-Sep-19 11:36:26

Ella or Mia. Both are pretty popular, I think I’d pluck for Mia.

ALoadOfTwaddle Thu 12-Sep-19 11:39:22

Can I be that annoying git who suggests a name not on the list?

If so, Maia.
If not, any but Lia. There's one I know and lots of people use 'liar' as their go-to pronunciation when they first read her name.

MikeUniformMike Thu 12-Sep-19 13:08:11

1. Ella - so many of them but it's the best on your list
3. Lia - better spelt Leah
4. Mia - overpopular
2. Mila - is it Mee-la or My-la?

Ella. The others are awful.
