I love Suki and Iris.

I always wanted to use Iris if I had a girl. Sadly Iris has become a little too popular for my liking... thanks Mel B!

Suki is less popular but a very pretty name.

Not Anouk or Suki!

I like Iris and Suki (although i am not sure I'd use it myself - too much taking off of the kettle after Polly had put it on)

Noonki Fri 29-May-09 21:58:33

I love iris and camille
suki is just to cutesy

Hassled Fri 29-May-09 22:02:20

Camille is lovely.

Anouk sounds feminine, strong and cool - To be honest I really really like it, Wolfear...

But tell me, out of interest, what does it mean? Where is it from?

i had a cat called suki - lol!

niccibabe Fri 29-May-09 22:40:47

Camille or Iris. Lois is too Superman & lilo for me. Suki is cute, but does remind me of cats

CandleQueen Fri 29-May-09 22:43:45

Suki does seem a cat name. And one of the Witches of Eastwick.

Camille is lovely, Lois under-used at the moment. Iris certainly over-used.

Boco Fri 29-May-09 22:46:20

Hmm.
Lois is good.
Camille is nice
Iris is pretty.
Anouk sounds like an eskimo
Suki is a bit sticky.

Paolosgirl Fri 29-May-09 22:54:32

Only like Camille. Suki sounds like a pet's name, or one of those awful nicknames gels from boarding school give each other. Anouk sounds like an Eskimo name, Lois is too American and Iris is a bit too twee.

Anouk - no no
Suki - no no
Iris - harsh thud sound
Lois - ok
Camille - nice sound but much prefer as a french name

pointydog Fri 29-May-09 22:55:24

Anouk - no no
Suki - no no
Iris - harsh thud sound
Lois - ok
Camille - nice sound but much prefer as a french name

MrsHappy Fri 29-May-09 22:56:21

No to Suki

Others are fine and I think Anouk is very cool.

pointydog Fri 29-May-09 22:56:28

will I say it again?

Spidermama Fri 29-May-09 22:57:36

Yes to Anouk and Camille.
The others are OK but those are great.

sockmonster Sat 30-May-09 13:05:13

No to Iris/Anouk

Yes to Camille

and strangely I like Suki!! It's a bit more of a nickname- but, I like it.... blush

boodleboot Sat 30-May-09 17:03:25

Anouk is quite interesting....Annie for NN?

no to others

NancyPreg Sat 30-May-09 18:34:47

Lois is my fave off your list.

wolfear Sat 30-May-09 18:37:55

Apparently Anouk means favoured grace. I think we could use Annie for NN.

I think it's going to be a case of deciding a name when we see this baby. May be a boy BTW...

CuppaTeaJanice Sat 30-May-09 18:39:48

Lois was on our girls shortlist.

boodleboot Sat 30-May-09 18:57:17

what country does Anouk traditionally hail from?
Favoured grace is a really beautiful meaning.

MaggieBee Sat 30-May-09 19:07:06

Lois.

Very urban chic. The others are all a bit like a load of letters jumbled up.

yama Sat 30-May-09 19:19:52

I saw Camille on another thread and realised there and then that I liked it.

Like Lois but prefer Lucy.

Not keen on the others.

Is Anouk pronounced like Nanook (of the North)?
