I like Georgia.

katienana Tue 23-Feb-21 21:34:00

I like Estella, really not keen on Adelaide

Tatum1234 Tue 23-Feb-21 21:35:09

Adelaide is my absolute favourite. It’s beautiful. I also like Juliet.

RoundedTum Tue 23-Feb-21 21:36:20

I only really like Lois from your list.

Adelaide - not awful, but not for me
Alexandra - pretty, Alex as a good nickname
Alice - classic and pretty
Estella - don’t like it, sorry
Georgia - lovely name, my favourite on your list
Juliet - again nice
Lauren - also nice!
Lois - I don’t like it, sorry
Lydia - I like if and I think quite unusual(?)
Verity - don’t really like it

So Georgia, Lydia and Alice would be my favourites!

Adelaide - not my cup of tea. I just think of the place. I do like Adeline however.
Alexandra - love! So many shortening options for her. Great choice.
Alice - nice.
Estella - not keen on the Stella part which isn't a name I like. I do like Estelle though.
Georgia - nice.
Juliet - lovely.
Lauren - nice and quite different these days. Haven't met a little Lauren for decades!
Lois - ok...a bit insipid / watery maybe.
Lydia - ok. I like Jane Austen names, but this isn't one I'm overly keen on.
Verity - nice.

capercaillie Tue 23-Feb-21 21:46:11

The only one I don’t like is Adelaide. Rest are lovely

clipcloptrop Tue 23-Feb-21 21:46:40

Adelaide- no
Alexandra- meh
Alice- nice
Estella- no
Georgia- no 🤮
Juliet- it's nice but I prefer Julia
Lauren- yes
Lois- no
Lydia- yes
Verity - no no no

partyatthepalace Tue 23-Feb-21 21:49:19

Lois - love it, so underused
Estella - ditto, though not quite so much

Lydia -really like it
Lauren - solid, like it

Verity, Juliet, Adelaide - nice but a bit fussy, prefer Julia or Adela

Alice, Georgia - fine but a lot of them

Alexandra - very nice but never known one not to be shortened to Alex or Ally both of which are a bit meh. You could use Sacha as a nn tho?

MeMeMeYou Tue 23-Feb-21 21:50:17

Like Alexandra and Alice the best. Not too keen on Adelaide as I think of a location not a person

Cocopogo Tue 23-Feb-21 21:51:12

I love all the A ones best

Happenchance Tue 23-Feb-21 21:58:13

I like Estella and Alexandra best. I like Juliet but not Julie or Jules, which it will invariably get shortened to.

I dislike Lydia and would worry about it getting shortened to Lyd.

The rest are OK.

GinWithLime Tue 23-Feb-21 22:09:56

Alexandra
Lois
Juliet

Love these!

TH22 Tue 23-Feb-21 22:16:31

I love Adelaide!

mintich Tue 23-Feb-21 22:25:15

I love Alexandra then Georgia

DontFuckingCallMeCis Tue 23-Feb-21 22:40:21

Lovely names OP!

My thoughts are:

Hmmm
Adelaide - are you from Oz?
Alexandra - sorry not keen
Alice** - very overused

These are the best - all very retro, stylish & cool
Estella
Georgia
Juliet
Lauren
Lois
Lydia
Verity

Georgia

LadyWithLapdog Tue 23-Feb-21 23:02:45

I like them all. I thought Adelaide ~ Adelheid ~ Heidi but I might be wrong.

Normandy144 Tue 23-Feb-21 23:03:45

I really like Lydia but couldn't convince DH so we have a Claudia instead which I also love. I also love Georgia on your list and Alexandra is classic.
