Expecting DC3 and getting excited about names. What do you think?

Claudia's nice. You don't hear it very often. I think Hermione sounds a bit nobby to be honest.

Claudia is lovely, Hermione is far too pretty and the association with Harry Potter too strong.

I adore both but dh didnt like Hermoine so we went for Claudia.

Bear in mind I am a cat, so slightly biased. wink
But it's waaaaay nicer than Hermione, and people will be able to pronounce it.

Claudia much better.

Hermione- poncy.
Claudia - OK

Well, any other suggestions at all then?
I also like Lydia, Arabella, Esther and Scarlett at the mo.

For boys I like Atticus, Barnaby, Bay and Blake.

And why is it when lots of people seem to like Claudia that there aren't ever very many of them about? My concern would be that I use the name and suddenly there are millions of them and mine is one of 5 in her class or something. (I was one of 5 girls with the same name in my classs at school and it wasn't great)

Hermione is toooooooooooo close to Harry Potter.

Anna8888 Sat 06-Sep-08 18:40:18

I like Arabella a lot.

I like Hermione who cares about the Potter thing there are still loads of Harrys. However it seems to have a bit of a chav following round here. I heard someone pronouncing it Hermi-ownie the other day.
Don't like Claudia sorry reminds me of a nasty cousin.

Love Hermione and also Arabella. What about Hester?

Tommy Sat 06-Sep-08 21:15:38

Claudia - definitely smile

frazzledoldbag34 Sat 06-Sep-08 21:24:08

Betty - love Hester but there is one in the family already - couldn't use it.

Ooooh, love Claudia, was just telling DH the other day I would like to add it to my list for the next one (waaaaaay into the future!)

Claudia is orginally latin and means 'lame'....

annasmami Sun 07-Sep-08 14:00:15

...but I love Arabella for girl and Atticus for a boy!
