To narrow it down I’d keep.
Belle (is okay as a middle name)

MintyCedric Thu 25-Nov-21 22:47:32

Clementine that order.

Tabitha - favourite, but I'm biased!
Jemima - my other favourite
Sophia - pretty but overdone
Orla - a bit dull - will merge into a sea of Eva/Ella/Ada/etc
Belle - pretty but not a bit weak
Marina - very nice! My second favourite
Savanna - dislike, I knew a horrible savanna. Susannah is nicer
Carmella - don't like
Jasmine - don't like
Heidi - don't like
Clementine - my joint second favourite.

Tabitha Clementine or Jemima Clementine would be my number one choices

Tabitha and Heidi are my favourite

sal1223 Thu 25-Nov-21 22:53:58

Savanna & Carmella my faves and les a likely to be shortened

Marina (Marnie is also fab, same vibe?)

Angel2702 Thu 25-Nov-21 22:58:31

Tabitha, Heidi, Clementine are my favourites from that list.

Tabitha and Heidi are my favs

AdaColeman Thu 25-Nov-21 22:59:35

Heidi or Carmella are my favourites.

I wouldn’t use Belle or Sophia as they are hugely popular already.

Jasmine Orla and Savanna are my least favourites.

Jemima or clementine are my favourites from your list

Clementine or Sophia, not keen on any of the others.

Kanaloa Thu 25-Nov-21 23:22:52

Tabitha - very pretty
Jemima - I’m so so on this name
Sophia - nice but very popular if that bothers you
Orla - really don’t like
Belle - I prefer Isabelle
Marina - nice
Savanna - nice enough, I prefer it with a h at the end
Carmella - not a big fan, I quite like Carmen but this just has a Carmelita Spats feel about it
Jasmine - nice name
Heidi - I’m not keen on this but no idea why
Clementine - nice

From your list I think I could only use Sophia, Orla or Jasmine.

Tabitha - makes me think of cats
Jemima - makes me think of puddleducks
Belle - it means beautiful, which is a nice meaning, but it just makes me feel like I'm saying "hello beautiful" to the child
Marina - nice if you live by the sea or if the father is a sailor
Savanna - nice enough, it's ok
Carmella - I work with one who I don't get on with so that makes me dislike the name
Heidi - nice if you're going to live on a Swiss mountainside with hair in plaits
Clementine - tasty christmas fruit

Tabitha - ok but I think on a spike of popularity
Jemima - I love it
Sophia - too many
Orla - love it
Belle - feels unfinished
Marina - actively dislike
Savanna - actively dislike
Carmella - actively dislike
Jasmine - I like it, very pretty
Heidi - I like it
Clementine - needs a short surname

MopaniTree Thu 25-Nov-21 23:42:13

Orla first choice and Carmella second.

But I also like Jasmine, Heidi and Clementine.

Marina, Savannah, Carmella

JuneOsborne Fri 26-Nov-21 06:17:40

I like Orla and Carmella. Would Carmella get shortened? Mella? Mel? Caz, even?

CatonMat Fri 26-Nov-21 06:19:58

Tabitha Belle.
