Thank you everyone for all your help on my last thread.

We decided on Sebastian for a boy.

However if it’s a girl most votes were for Amelie or Emily.

My husband prefers Emily as it’s classic
I do like Emily but feel it’s dated? Amelie is more fresh.

What do you think? Please vote one!

I much prefer Emily, it's not dates it just a classic.

I find Amelie a bit meh, and as others have said a bit try hard.

Love Sebastian

Emily definitely gets my vote

(Sebastian is a lovely name too)

I like pp suggestion of Emilia. Classic and pretty.

I know a baby Sebastian and it (sorry) sounds weird calling a small child such a long old name; but equally so, Seb sounds really blunt and harsh (spoken as a fellow single syllable namer).

Emily get my vote

What about Eliza ? Just as if you can't decide maybe you've not found the right name yet.

Emily, there are too many Amelie's now

I like equally.

many years ago ds would have been Emilia
(We have Italian roots) if he was a girl.

By the way I also have a Sebastian smile

Sorry my post is not a great help.

I have one and although sounds v popular shes the only one in her primary school.of 250 ish kids

Charis1503 Sun 12-Jan-20 22:16:49

I also vote Emily but spelt Emilie - just zazzes it up abit!

I also like the name Ottilie which maybe a similar vibe to what your going for?

Good luck with the induction. Mine took 63 hours from the first pessery to him making an entrance! Id reccomend carb loading!!

Emily! There aren’t that many around now

diddlediddle Sun 12-Jan-20 22:18:24

Please don't spell it Emilie! Just cheapens a classic name. Emilia is ok.

Dollymixture22 Sun 12-Jan-20 22:20:40

Keep to classic spelling. Don’t agree it makes it special, just a bit more awkward. Counts the same.

Jayteedee Sun 12-Jan-20 22:21:41

I would go Emilia or Emmeline (the latter is my fav)

NameChange30 Sun 12-Jan-20 22:25:35

Are you or DH French?
If one of you is French, Amélie (with the accent).
If neither is French, Emily.

I love Sebastian! (Incidentally French too, although spelt Sébastien.)

Flymetothestars Sun 12-Jan-20 22:25:35

Emily ❤️
Good luck with induction please update us!

Emily is not dated. It's one of those names th will always be round so will never date.
I don't like Amelie. It's funny way and name can be just one letter out yet change your whole opinion.

Awwlookatmybabyspider Mon 13-Jan-20 00:07:02

Oh yes Good luck. Be sure to update. X

OhWellThatsJustGreat Mon 13-Jan-20 00:09:26

I love Amelie, but won't she get Amy as a nickname? How do you feel about Amy?

I dislike Emily, but that's due to a bad experience with a girl called Emily.

Insaneinthemembury Mon 13-Jan-20 00:13:45

Amelie is lovely
