Emma

Yeah I have a friend Emma who is 42 so I do think of it as classic.

Rachel is really, really lovely. have had it on my list of girls names for each of my pg's, despite normally going for more unusual things

Emily
Rebecca
Katharine/Katherine/Katie
All variants of Elizabeth

David seems to be a name that could be any age (if that's what you mean?) even though it has had periods of greater and lesser popularity

CuckooClockWorkOrange Fri 08-Aug-08 20:25:17

No offence to all the millions of Hannahs out there, but why aren't some of them Rachels? Rachel is spunkier. I do apologise for saying spunkier like a home and away character.

Jane
Catherine

Not sure about Emily. Almost nobody between 25 and 65 is called Emily.

Rebecca, yes, know loads, at school and it's in the top ten.

Lucy, yes, know grown up ones and baby ones.

David, no sorry the panel will not accept David as apart from bebby dehvid from the Royle family, don't know any Davids under 25.

all names date. either they are in fashion when the child is born - as those on this thread all are - or they aren't (liz, ann, kathy, all variants of your fashionable ones)

Robert?

Helen

Louise
Amelia
Victoria

CuckooClockWorkOrange Fri 08-Aug-08 20:31:09

Amelia, no sorry I won't accept that one. Don't know any Amelias over 23. Louise is a definite non-dater. Good one.

BellaBear Fri 08-Aug-08 20:31:24

I know loads of Davids under 25. But then, I'm a teacher so I know loads of people under 25. Still, there are quite a few.

CuckooClockWorkOrange Fri 08-Aug-08 20:38:22

Amelia was popular 100 years ago, and has been revived.

Jessica hmm seriously?
