which is better for our baby girl due in October?
Annabel or Martha?
We have two boys already Ben and Oliver

both lovely

all go together fine smile

slightly prefer Martha, but that's only my preference

Not so keen on Annabel, but Martha is lovely and will go very well with Ben and Oliver.

martha is lovely. I have never liked Annabel.

both lovely

Annabel definitely.

But then i'm one of the few minority on here that doesn't like Martha ...

annabel goes with nightclubs in my mind unfortunately as it is also very pretty

Prefer Martha here

I prefer Annabell, I'm not fond of Martha however taking into account the names of your other children I think Martha fits in best with those.

martha smile

Another vote for Martha, I think it's gorgeous.

Annabel - very classy, without being pretentious. Could be shortened to Anna or Belle, equally lovely.
Martha - suggests downtrodden/hardworking to me, not my cup of tea.

Um... neither.

HonoriaGlossop Fri 25-Jul-08 14:22:51

Annabel is prettier and goes better with your boys names, IMO

Not amazingly keen on either of them. There is a possibility that Martha may be more popular at the moment with Doctor Who (although IMO the Martha in that is pants).

Martha's popularity has been declining for the past few decades, while Annabel is currently trendy:
Martha girl name
Annabel girl name
I would go for Annabel!

LOVE Annabel. In fact if this baby had been a girl she would have been Annabel or Harriet and i had a lot of positive feedback about Oliver. As it is i'm back to trawling boy's names!!

pointydog Fri 25-Jul-08 17:56:53

Martha, deff. Do not liek Annabel

pointydog Fri 25-Jul-08 17:57:47

even better, Anna

Pinkchampagne Fri 25-Jul-08 17:58:36

Martha is my favourite

Collision Fri 25-Jul-08 17:59:05


Not keen on Martha and my two boys would have been Annabel!

cyteen Fri 25-Jul-08 17:59:18

I'd go for Martha. Never liked Annabel and I don't think it sits as well with your boys' names.

so really like martha now but not sure about a middle name.
