Theodore - ok
Mungo - are you serious?
Peter - nice
Hercules - err, no

Jemima - ok
Sofia - lovely
Hester - ok
Hannah - ok, bit dull (sorry to all Hannah's)
Henrietta - no, not really

Just IMO...

MissisBoot Tue 23-Sep-08 15:08:11

Theo and Hester are ok - although Hester may get misheard as Esther.

EffiePerine Tue 23-Sep-08 15:08:36

I liek Hester, Hannah and Henrietta

Mungo fine for a 19th C explorer, less OK for a baby IMO

DeJaVous Tue 23-Sep-08 15:10:03

I like Thoedore, Sofia, Hester and Henrietta. IMO the Sophia spelling is much nicer. Not keen on the others at all, sorry.

Theodore is my favorite and Mungo is dh's (which i like also) Finding it hard to agree on a girls name. Dh likes Sissy and Minnie but I'm not keen.

I like Hester, I went to school with one. Theo also but I wonder of it will be the new 'Jack' soon as very popular.

Sorry, I couldn't get past Mungo... PMSL grin

Like these names the best

Theodore - nice, I like Theo
Mungo - noooooooooooooooooo
Peter - A bit 1970s but OK
Hercules - nooooooooooooooooooooooo

Jemima - nice
Sofia - prefer to spell it Sophia. Spelt that was it is lovely.
Hester - love it. DH put off my Scarlett Letter connotations
Hannah - nice
Henrietta - a pit posh for my liking.

Theodore - love it but are you comfortable with the religious connotations?
Mungo - I like offbeat names but this is taking it too far, I think. Guess you're too young to remember Mary, Mungo and Midge!
Peter - fine name. A bit middle of the road but a nice meaning and not much used these days.
Hercules - just a bit too far along the 'wacky' scale for my taste.

Jemima - OK. Reminds me of Puddleduck and a song my dad sings about 'Oh Jemima look at your uncle Jim, he's in the duck pond learning how to swim'. Neither of which is necessarily bad.
Sofia - does not float my boat.
Hester - fantastic name. Heard something on the radio today about Lady Hester Stanhope.
Hannah - nice name but chronically over-used.
Henrietta - lovely.

But these are the opinions of a mad old biddy and so they are worthless!

I like Peter.

Hannah is ok but I've heard it too often.

BabyBaby123 Tue 23-Sep-08 17:45:29

the only ones which I think are really awful are Hercules and Mungo - the rest are ok but not my cup of tea personally

Raahh Tue 23-Sep-08 19:57:13

of your boys i only like Peter, but like it a lot. of your girls i like Sophie, and love Hannah.

i think Hercules is horrid- sorry!

CantSleepWontSleep Tue 23-Sep-08 20:22:08

Like Hester and Henrietta.

bettybeetroot Tue 23-Sep-08 20:23:00

thanks for feedback - i think i'm leaning towards mungo grin i also like the fact it's not run of the mill (but it will no doubt sway elswhere!) sorry for being thick madbad with regards to theodore and the religous connotation? i don't know what you mean (i'm not at all religious) i know it's greek. ds1 has an unusual greek name so not sure that i want a 'theme' iykwim.

bettybeetroot Tue 23-Sep-08 20:27:01

beforesunrise i am going off hercules and dh doesn't really like it (but we do have an 'agreement' - i choose the first names and he chooses the middle names!

yellowflowers Tue 23-Sep-08 20:29:57

I actually rather like Mungo wink

LuLuBai Tue 23-Sep-08 20:36:35

Theodore - gorgeous

Mungo - like it but prefer Jago, Sholto, Milo or Cosmo

Peter - very dull and seems out of keeping with your other choices

Hercules - can't quite get to grips with it. It's a lot to live up to. And I can't think what you would shorten it to.

Jemima - So pretty

Sofia - lovely but for some reason I prefer it spelt Sophia

Hester - nah

Hannah - gorgeous and classic

Henrietta - the head girl at my school was always called Henrietta

ByTheSea Tue 23-Sep-08 20:38:29

I like Peter and Sofia best.

Perpendicular Tue 23-Sep-08 20:52:17

Theodore means 'gift of god'.

My favourites are Peter and Jemima.
