I am the mumsnetter which posted a thread a couple of weeks ago on the names Jemima, Georgie, Gia & Milly ....
we were undecided between Jemima & Georgie but now feel as if neither is the name for our little girl! confused
Other names we like but 100% on are:
Kitty
Violet
Genevieve
Lydia
Eliza
Middle name will be Grey.
Sooo...I would love some name suggestions that you think I might like! I guess I want some a little vintage, classy, pretty 🤔
TIA x smile

Eliza Grey sounds lovely.

Ottoline is a bit random to my ears, definitely not a classic

Alice is good
I like Kitty but you would need Katherine as the full name to get into classic territory
Eliza is my fave, either on its own or as a nn for Elizabeth
Lydia is ok, I wouldn’t call it a classic, maybe a bit 80s plus Lydia from Pride & Prejudice is not a great association
Jemima is ok, a bit Sloaney

So my order would be Eliza, Kitty, Alice, Jemima, Lydia, Ottoline

interesting to see whether people think Kitty is classic or not🤔I’ve always seen it as a classic vintage name!
Suggestions of Ottilie have brought me to an old favourite, Ottoline. I know its a love it or hate it name, but what do people think? Is it absolutely ridiculous?? Or is it a unique classic name (as I prefer to view it)?

I really like Jemima and Lydia. I think Kitty is nice too although does sound a bit nickname-y and I think Alice is quite boring compared to your other choices.

Eliza or Esme . Georgie and Jemima are both lovely names!

A really lovely classy list there (except Kitty imo) ❤️

Thank you for your suggestions ladies- seems like you have my style pinpointed! I love Alice, and Alice Grey is so lovely, so that is now on the list!
Thank you for opinions on names too ! In the lead is now Kitty, Eliza, Alice, Lydia, Jemima. Ah, the joys of baby naming (not)!!

Kitty sounds too sexual for a baby/child to me. Please don’t all attack me, just expressing an opinion 🐱
