Are you considering one of these? I like Annie.

bellissima Sun 13-Sep-09 13:31:46

Yep Annie.

Or howabout Delish?

MaggieVirgoOn Sun 13-Sep-09 16:32:13

Annie here too.

Angel beau nmsaa!! beau is masculine. For me, that's odd for a girl. Annie Belle. What about Annabel Rose with Annie for short.

Annie could also be short for Angela Rose.

Joan is a bit drab, but I like Jeannie.

Alanna seems a bit bland, kind of weak-sounding. Can't put my finger on it. Prefer Elena Rose.

Eilish is that Scotish. Prefer just Elisabeth. Elsa short for Elizabeth nice.

the female version on beau is spelt Bo, and i think its very pretty but of those names i love Eilish, with or without the H, very lovely

cookielove Sun 13-Sep-09 16:34:39

Eilish is irish

tammy234 Sun 13-Sep-09 16:36:57

All beautiful names except for Eilish, which I wouldn't know how to pronounce.

Angel in literature is a masculine name. So is Beau.

Angela Bo is for a girl.

Joan is just boring.

tammy234 Sun 13-Sep-09 18:01:08

I like Alanna and Annie from your list!

cece Sun 13-Sep-09 18:06:32

I like Annie, not sure about the other names. I have heard of a fe baby Joans around, and it is growing on me.

cookielove Sun 13-Sep-09 18:35:16

tammy234 Eilish - Ilish

PrammyMammy Sun 13-Sep-09 20:30:48

Annie is my fave out of your list. Cute!

plonker Sun 13-Sep-09 23:16:33

Isn't Annie Rose Alfie's little sister?

Very very cute!

Angel is usually a Spanish boys' name (or Mexican, Hispanic in general).
Alanna is an Irish term of endearment for a child or baby, roughly means 'little darling' or 'darling baby' or 'my darling' (leanbh=baby, young child).
Eilish (or Eilis) would be pronounced eye-lish or eye-leesh for the latter, means Elizabeth in Irish.

I wouldn't name a girl Angel, but I like the others.

BunnyLebowski Mon 14-Sep-09 12:56:31

Annie is absolutely fantastic! Cute and girly but sassy and full of personality too!

Eilish is ok. Not one of my favourite Irish names.

Alannah is very dated.

And Angel is shocking! Tacky and very Jordanesque....sorry!

When did Bo become a girl's name?

pooexplosions Mon 14-Sep-09 13:08:57

Bo Derek?

seeker Mon 14-Sep-09 13:22:09

Her real name was Mary Collins!

bridewolf Mon 14-Sep-09 14:27:56

sorry , should have mentioned last name was a boys name.

MaggieBeauLeo Mon 14-Sep-09 15:37:00

Bo is just ludicrous for a girl. I can't get past the masculine 'beau' and I can't get past the body odour aspect either..

[My lovely assistant seeker will post her link now] wink

MaggieBeauLeo Mon 14-Sep-09 15:39:12

oh sorry bridewolf, that changes everything. Yes, I kind of like Angel for a boy. Imagine screaming "ANGEL, stop taking the lids of the yoghurt pots" in Tesco at the top of your voice though!!

Maybe Dominic Angel. nn Demonic Angel. grin

seeker Mon 14-Sep-09 18:24:22

6h for crying out loud, you can't call a boy Angel! Actually, you can't call a person Angel, but PARTICULARLY a boy!

skihorse Mon 14-Sep-09 19:15:58

Why not simply hyphenate all possible suggested names therefore proving your point beyond all doubt?

Minicooper Mon 14-Sep-09 19:45:10

I think Bo's lovely - its a chinese girl's name and means 'precious'. On my shortlist for dd - tho prob as a middle name!

idobelieveinfairies Mon 14-Sep-09 19:46:58

Annie is a lovely name, my neice is Annie-Mae.

I also love Eliza.
