any preferences?

I like all of them except Annie, it just reminds me of the musical, sorry blush. The others are all lovely, I don't think I could pick a favourite.

I'm partial to Cassie as its my dds name.
Not keen on Greta, though its one that may grow.

Do you pronounce Frida as in Freda or with an 'i' sound? If so, it sounds harsh and grumpy old lady to me; and I love old lady names.

Greta is beautiful.

I prefer Cass as a nn for cassandra but it's ok. It is a very popular dogs name though so just bear that in mind.

Annie is pretty but it's one of those names that sounds like it's a nn but isn't. Don't use it if your DD will have ginger hair though.

didn't realise cassie was a bit of a dog's name - the nonesuch have you come across that?

we do have ginger in the family although both me & dh have dark hair so I don't think it's likely...

frida would be pronounced freeda

I just can't decide & it's driving me mad. due in a week

Come to think of it, I have also known a dog called Freda.

Sorry if my post sounded impolite. I didn't mean it that way. Taste in names is so personal and diverse. smile

Don't let that put you off. Lots and lots of dogs are called Toby but it's still a popular and pleasant boys name. And Jake!

I've never seen that spelling of Frida. Only ever seen it spelt Freda so it may be one open to being misspelt. But hey, I've got a Catherine and people regularly spell it wrong. Either they miss out the 'e' or they start it with a 'k' (that's probably my fault as she's known as Kitty, but still!)

Greta just sounds like she's elegant and beautiful. But hey, just go with your instinct. None are awful or sound made up.

Paddy also popular dogs name but I know a 5yr old Paddy (he's Patrick)and think it's a great name.

Sorry if I've put you off esp at 39wks!

MamaLazarou Tue 21-Jul-09 17:06:10

I love all those names. Greta would be my favourite.

TheNonesuch Tue 21-Jul-09 17:10:17

Cassie is not a dogs name<stamps foot>.

Its short for Cassidy though not Cassandra here.

Mind you I loved the name Cressida but couldn't use it after someone I know named their dog that!

BunnyLebowski Tue 21-Jul-09 17:10:44

I have a Cassie too so I'm biased on that one!

I think Frida and Greta are both very harsh sounding and aren't pretty or feminine.

Annie is lovely.

Don't waste time worrying about the movie or any other references - somebody's always gonna know a character/dog/naughty child with that name so they won't like it. As long as you do that's all that matters!

sweetnitanitro Tue 21-Jul-09 17:11:30

I know 1 person called Cassie and no dogs called Cassie so to me it's a people name smile

piscesmoon Tue 21-Jul-09 17:12:41

I only like Annie-dislike the rest-especially Frida and Greta.

krugerparkrules Tue 21-Jul-09 17:13:54

Frida (is the spelling as in Frida Kahlo) and you also have Frieda (more german spelling) All said the same way, depending on country of origin the spelling ...

random Tue 21-Jul-09 17:16:32

I don't like any sorry ...I had a cat called cassie,she buggered off to live with the woman up the road tho shock

liahgen Tue 21-Jul-09 17:19:27

Annie fav, (check profile) wink

Like the others too though.

welovepinkmilk Tue 21-Jul-09 17:33:48

Love Annie but I'm biased. Greta or Cassie lovely too.

myredcardigan Tue 21-Jul-09 17:34:26

Oh I forgot about Frida Kahlo. Was she the one who had the affair with Trotsky?

OnceWasSquiffy Tue 21-Jul-09 17:34:34

Cassandra was one of my top 3 names for DD, but DH vetoed it, so that's what we've called the guinea pig instead.

<sorry, couldn't resist>

sleepsforwimps Tue 21-Jul-09 17:45:00

Greta is by far my favourite.

notsoteenagemum Tue 21-Jul-09 17:52:17

I like Cassie and Greta, Annie is nice but I'd go for Anna, not keen on Frida reminds me of a horrid tutor.

abitclueless Tue 21-Jul-09 18:11:56

thanks, still no clearer to be honest!
myredcardigan stop apologising!! smile

janeite Tue 21-Jul-09 18:13:55

Love Cassie, hate Greta.

maggievirgo Tue 21-Jul-09 18:33:31

I like Annie and Greta. Frieda I thinkk I like. Cassie I really dislike.

Liagen, your Annie is gorgeous, and all your children's names go really well together.
