Is Ambrose for a boy or girl? - thought it was a boys name but all your other names are girls??

I like Portia but think people will think it's Porsche...

In fact I don't dislike any of them but would possibly depend on your surname - the longer names would sound good with a single syllable surname

Yes Ambrose for a boy.

Thanks so far. How common is Rafaella? I don't know any.

Portia sounds v posh to me, sorry
Like Cleo, Marnie and Evangeline
Rafaella I'd go for only if you have some Italian roots somewhere
Don't like Ambrose

Marnie is really great. Evangeline is sweet, would probably get shortened to Evie. Not keen on any of the others.

Seriously dislike Portia - sounds pretentious at best and Porsche at worst. Sorry. Like Evangeline though.

I really liked Portia until I looked up what it meant... it's "Pig". hmm

Portia just makes me think of Porsche (and A Fish Called Wanda).

Really like Marnie though - pretty.

Like Evangeline. Wasn't she the lady the Dad married in Nanny Mcphee?

I don't really like Marnie, but the rest are nice. A lot depends on the surname, though.

portia always reminds me of a fish called wanda! not really keen on the others either sorry.

One of my good friends is Raffaela and shes lovely so it makes me think its a lovely name
Not so keen on the others

pointyhat Fri 16-Oct-09 19:15:43

I really quite like Marnie.

Yup as bronze says the spelling is Raffaela. No go unless you're Italian.

Cleo is lovely, as is Marnie.
