I like Imogen a lot but it is growing in popularity.

I'd probably go for Tamsin, because you don't get too many babies called Tamsin and it is very pretty.

Tamsin's lovely and much less popular than Imogen

Much prefer Imogen. Not too popular here (West Yorks). It is a lovely name.

I have a nearly 2 year old Imogen. Haven't come across another yet but I'm sure we will. We call her Mimi for short.

LOVE Imogen (Immy).
HATE Tamsin.

No rational at all.

Rationale, not rational.

Really love Imogen.
DH vetoed it for our DD sad

treacletart - I know a nearly 5-year-old Imogen nn-ed Mimi, too!

HeinzSight Fri 31-Jul-09 21:41:07

DH vetoed both Tamsin and Imogen last time, now he says I can have 'my' Tamsin or Imogen.

I know of one little girl called Imogen but no Tamsins.

We already have a Christian, James and Niamh

BUT, we don't know whether this LO is a boy or a girl!!

We've got a Tamsin, now 5 & not met another one. Good Cornish Saints' name - struggle to see what the chav connotations are! Imogen's are 10-a-penny in this part of the world (but I still think it's a pretty name, too)

GwarchodwrPlant Fri 31-Jul-09 21:50:55

Didn't mean to offend anyone with the 'chav' connotations, it's only my opinion based on the fact that I know 2 of them and they are really really chavvy! So it's not a nice name to me.

I prefer Yazmin/Yasmin but i am bias cos i have one! Her NN is Mini.
I like Imogen as well.

skybright Fri 31-Jul-09 21:59:34

Carys or Imogen were my top two girls names when i had DS.

So Imogen for me.

Prefer Tamsin to Imogen. The one I know (from school in the 70s) is very classy.

Firawla Sat 01-Aug-09 12:19:57

Both are really nice
I dont think Tamsin is chavvy at all!!
and its less common at the moment so i would say maybe go with that?

noddyholder Sat 01-Aug-09 14:10:11

Tillyscoutsmum Sat 01-Aug-09 14:20:47

I like both but prefer Tamsin because its a bit less popular

ilovesprouts Sat 01-Aug-09 14:25:57
