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!

Emily.

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

Amelie

HelloRoaring20s Sun 12-Jan-20 22:11:59

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.

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

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

user1471449295 Mon 13-Jan-20 00:18:32

Amalie

CalmFizz Mon 13-Jan-20 00:22:36

Emily, classic.
