I think we have narrowed it down to:


Any thoughts? Or anyone got any other ideas for these sorts of names? I was worried that Alice is quite popular these days... Think Lydia is the current favourite but I am still not 100% (DP likes Ancient Greek names)

Love them all...probably slightly less taken by Astrid but the first three are great and go together well, so if you accidently have girl triplets, you're sorted !

I love Lydia. If I had another DD I would want her to be called Lydia - or Elsie.

Yes, Astrid was a wild card, hence the question mark... DP just said 'It isn't the worst name ever'. But to be honest his reaction to all names under the sun is either outright hostility or indifference so it isn't much help...

I also love Elsa, but for DP this is too reminiscent of the lion in Born Free...

Anya4 Wed 07-Oct-09 14:29:08

I have an Elsa and love it !! obviously nobody of her generation has any idea about Born Free, and for me there are worst things to be associated with than a lion...!

Also, unless we randomly meet, you'll not meet another one, which is nice.

Maybe I'll try gently suggesting Elsa again. I have never met one, and I wanted something that was unusual without being totally zany or ridiculously flowery.

(I know a rose is a flower, but you know what I mean...)

I like Alice best.

How about Elizabeth/Elisabeth with a nickname?

They are all good names but Alice is my favourite.

MrsVik Wed 07-Oct-09 19:03:45

Oooh, Alice was on our list too, I think it's beautiful. I also LOVE Rosa!

Love Rosa and Lydia

I think Alice is quite boring in comparison

Not sure about Astrid....dont dislkie it but prefer the other 2

There are too many people in my family called Elizabeth, one of whose baby is due at exactly the same time as mine... Also, I have a friend called Beth who is actually more of a 'friend', if you get me...

Rosa is beautiful and I don't know of any.

I love Lydia. Like Alice, Rosa and Astrid too, they are all really nice names. I also like Elsie...

simplesusan Sun 11-Oct-09 00:01:03

Lydia is my dd's middle name. Rosa is my cat's name as chosen by my dd!

becklespeckle Sun 11-Oct-09 00:32:29

Lydia is my fave but love Alice too. Rosa is nice but is the Italian version of Rose I think (which I like better). Astrid I don't like, always makes me think of asteroids...
