not Jolyon (a tad poncey), Noah or Rose (too popular)
others all great

I would choose Alexander (Alex) and Rose from your list, both lovely. Really not keen on Jolyon, it doesn't sound like a proper name to me.

Paolosgirl Mon 20-Jul-09 20:41:48

Not Jolyon (too poncey) and Johnny will always be a condom to me. Not too keen on Willow - too 'of the moment' but love love love the others.

Bellsa Mon 20-Jul-09 20:44:50

not too sure about Jolyon or Willow. Like the others though. Favourites are Elizabeth, Rose and Alexander.
