I like Emma best.
Not keen on Louise.

Emma May
Emma Jane
Emma Charlotte all sound nice, I think.

Nice names but Poppy and Freya are VERY popular at the moment, if that concerns you.

edam Sat 02-Aug-08 15:14:54

And Poppy always makes me think of someone jolly plucky. If she grows up to be terribly serious, it really won't suit her. Imagine a high court judge called Poppy...

I have a Freya Molly.
Or i like Freya Grace.

I love Poppy too.

I know an Emma who is anything but shy and retiring, if that helps... and there's Emma from Jane Austen, she was quite forwards for that day and age.

Poppy strikes me as a lovely name for a little girl but possible a bit too sweet for an adult. And Freya... nice name but there are too many of them about. Each with parents who thought they were choosing something unusual.

edam Sat 02-Aug-08 18:53:38

And Emma Hamilton of Lord Nelson fame - she wasn't shy at all!

edam Sat 02-Aug-08 18:54:08

oops, sorry barnsleybelle, cross post! It is a nice name...

wornoutwaitress Sat 02-Aug-08 18:55:18

freya or poppy for me.

tiredemma Sat 02-Aug-08 18:55:19

Emma Louise ( But i am biased as its my name!)

DorrisMcWhirter Sat 02-Aug-08 18:55:35

Emma - lovely name and much underused

CuckooClockWorkShy Sat 02-Aug-08 18:56:13

I love Poppy, but I wouldn't put it on a birth cert. Just my weird little ways. I would put maybe Penelope on the birth cert and use Polly or Poppy (or Penny) for short.

Emma is nice but lacks Wow. Jemima with Jemma for short is better imo.

Freya is ok. It's one of those new names that seemed to spring from nowhere though. I like it, and it's very pretty, but, tracy sprang from nowhere 50 yrs ago.

So........ definitely Poppy. No contest.

Emma is lovely, always has been, always will be and is underused at the moment.

Freya, very popular but nice.

Poppy, too little girly and sugary or plays lacrosse and is the big hearty one at boarding school. Not keen either way tbh.

I have a Poppy Louise so that gets my vote....and she'd make an excellent high court judge grin

CuckooClockWorkShy Sat 02-Aug-08 19:13:34

Nobody says Lily couldn't be a high court judge. Poppy is a stronger name imo.

barnsleybelle Sat 02-Aug-08 19:13:56

Freya is a scandanavian name which has been around for years and years.

CuckooClockWorkShy Sat 02-Aug-08 19:20:29

Yes but its usage as a name in the rest of the English speaking World is new.

Tova for example has also been a Scandinavian name for hundreds of years, but I don't know several Tovas under ten.
