At the moment one of these is my choice, one is dh's choice and one is dd's choice! Just wondering who thought what to each! I'm sure all three will change again before baby comes

Leah. I love it.

I like all of them.

Jemma - I think it prefer Jemima, with Jemma as a nn.

Kira - I don't know any Kiras, I think it's a nice sounding name.

Leah - maybe a little bland, although nothing really wrong with it.

Good luck with your pregnancy and have fun deciding names

Leah definitely smile

Jemma (maybe Gemma?) or Leah

Kira - nah

Jemma, Gemma or Jemima.

Not Leah or Kira.

Leah is nice.

Kira, looks a bit like a nickname, but Keira is lovely, nicer than Leah imo.

Jemma I dislike, it's very 1980's. Also not keen on it with a 'J', if at all I prefer it spelt Gemma.

I dont like Jemma ( I cant see an adult called Jemma).

I love Kira (try spelling it Keira) It was on my list

I like Leah (one of my friends has just called her dd that).

Good luck

Not Keira. I like fact I may steal it in case I have another DD!!

BunnyLebowski Tue 08-Sep-09 16:28:07

They're all very dated imo.

How about Ciara....the actual spelling of Kira?

Wigglesworth Tue 08-Sep-09 16:35:11

Leah gets my vote.

seeker Tue 08-Sep-09 16:39:13

Leah - or Gemma possibly. Not Kira. I will put money on Kira being you dd's choice!

ObsidianBlackbirdMcNight Tue 08-Sep-09 16:40:12

I like Keira a lot. Jemma and Leah not so much.

bevlin Tue 08-Sep-09 16:54:47

Jemma, it's classier than Kira and Leah and I think 'pretty' when I think of the name

glasgowlass Tue 08-Sep-09 17:02:41

Leah gets my vote, not so keen on other two.

Every Leah i know is lovely..

LyraSilvertongue Tue 08-Sep-09 17:05:24

Kira's lovely. It was on my girl's name list (I have 2 boys)

dogonpoints Tue 08-Sep-09 17:22:30

I like Kira a lot

LIZS Tue 08-Sep-09 18:22:06

sorry don't like Jemma

MaggieVirgo Tue 08-Sep-09 20:13:27

Jemma and Leah are both lovely. Kira not so much. It's ok though.

franke Tue 08-Sep-09 20:17:14

I like Kira and I like that spelling of it, or even Kyra.
Leah is too Star Wars imo.
Jemma is okay

jemmalou Tue 08-Sep-09 21:59:16

bargainhuntingbetty - i am an adult called jemma. made the transition from childhood fairly smoothly...

florence2511 Tue 08-Sep-09 22:06:08

Leah - love

Kira - don't like at all

Jemma - don't like at all

saggyhairyarse Tue 08-Sep-09 22:20:02

I've got a Jemma, that I wish we had named Jemima now

Stayingsunnygirl Tue 08-Sep-09 22:26:53

Leah gets my vote too - it has a gentle sound to it.

Tidey Tue 08-Sep-09 22:29:17

I like Kira and Leah. Not keen on Jemma/Gemma as all the ones I've met have been thoroughly unpleasant.
