Surname is Taylor, middle name would be Genovefa (after my Polish gran), dd1 is called Lila, and we are at completely undecided and have been for the past 8 months- please tell me what you think of these names, I think they are both lovely and cant choose at all.....

I prefer Eliza, but rather than Lila and Eliza, which would be a mouthful, I'd go for Catherine, which is also a smashing name smile

Eliza, definitely.

Catherine Genovefa doesnt sound right to me but then again neither does Eliza Genovefa, Ellie Genovefa is nice (slightly similair to Eliza LOL.) Anyways is up to you dont listen to me or anyone else on here we all nit pick LOL.

Agree with TheFallenMadonna - prefer Eliza as a name but Catherine works better with Lila and also, imo, with Genovefa

Catherine is a fine, upstanding name. Many, many wonderful people are called Catherine wink

Eliza is okay I guess...wink

I actualy prefer Eliza as a name but I like Catherine too and it definitely goes better with Lila.

Lila and Eliza are too similar for siblings imo.

I have a Catherine, we shorten it to Katie, we love it. She can be a cute Katie as a child, then, if she wants when she's older she can be Kate, or Catherine (I think they sound 'older' somehow).

Eliza is pretty too though! Think Catherine is more classic though. And timeless.

Eliza is very sweet and pretty.

Catherine is pretty but more boring.

I prefer Eliza. Catherine is really dull (JMo)
But I do like Katya. could you do Katherine wih a K, and Katya for short?

I wouldn't be able to choose between Eliza and Katya. Well, I'd choose Eliza because I prefer its full name.

hth a bit

Janni Fri 11-Jul-08 18:28:04

They're both nice names.

I prefer Catherine.

FabioTheLiterateCat Fri 11-Jul-08 18:28:26

Eliza's nice but too like Lila.
Catherine's one of those names that's nice but not very common anymore.

AbbeyA Fri 11-Jul-08 18:29:12

Both lovely.

Waves to other Catherine/Katharines !! grin
I prefer Catherine - its a beautiful name, a timeless classic, and can be shortened to lots of groovey nick names. Trina, Tina, Reenie, Cate, Katie, Kate, Kitty.
