I am expecting a baby girl in a few weeks. we cant decide between these names, what do people think of them?

Thea and Anya are both great names. They are both in my family. I like Eve, and Cara is good too. I'm not too keen on Lily as it's very popular at the mo.

Like Lily the best, although Thea and Anya are both lovely too! I used to look after my friend's little girl, who is called Anya and she's so lovely!

Eve and Lily are both lovely, but popular at the moment (if that matters to you).

I like Cara best, and it is unusual.

Anya is nice too

I don't like Thea as much.

Lily and Anya I like the best - doesn't bother me Lily is popular.
Eve is nice but prefer Evie.
Not keen on Cara or Thea.

jellybeans Mon 19-Oct-09 16:16:54 it but prefer Eva or Evie, but these names so popular
lily...OK it, nice and quite unusual it
anya...not keen

I only like Thea.

Eve and Lily are everywhere now. Nice names but so many, like Ella.

Cara makes me think of a barmaid and Anya just isn't my bag at all.

I like Cara or Anya, but I'm not too keen on Thea tbh. I quite like Eve and Lily but like everyone has said they are very popular nowadays so I'm not sure I would name my daughter either of them.

mamalovesmojitos Mon 19-Oct-09 19:06:28

i like them all smile

thea is my favourite.

belgo Mon 19-Oct-09 19:09:18

All lovely, apart from Cara, which is very bland.

GibbonWithAnAppleBobbingBibOn Mon 19-Oct-09 19:11:37

Soeey Anya makes me think potato, I like Eve smile

GibbonWithAnAppleBobbingBibOn Mon 19-Oct-09 19:12:33

Apologies, typing too fast, that was sorry not an attempt to sound girly and twee wink

ZZZenAgain Mon 19-Oct-09 19:14:13

why does Anya make you think of potatoes?

Of those I only like Eve.

ZZZenAgain Mon 19-Oct-09 19:14:31

Lily is a nice name, I just know so many of them

GibbonWithAnAppleBobbingBibOn Mon 19-Oct-09 19:16:46

anya is a variety of potato

Bessie123 Mon 19-Oct-09 19:17:55

Eve and Lily are too popular, the other 3 are yuck

ZZZenAgain Mon 19-Oct-09 19:19:14

I didn't know that Gibbon

belgo Mon 19-Oct-09 19:21:07

Nicola and Charlotte are also varieties of potatoes. I wouldn't exclude those names on that basis.

MrsJiggle86 Mon 19-Oct-09 19:22:38

That is a hard decision, all the names are beautiful, i proberly like Eve best.
Congrats smile

Tidey Mon 19-Oct-09 19:22:45

Don't even get me started on my children, Maris and Piper. What was I thinking?

I like Anya and Lily best from your list.

BonsoirAnna Mon 19-Oct-09 19:25:56

Lily is much the prettiest name on your list. I don't know many here in Paris (there is a little German Lily in DD's class at school) but I know that it is very popular in countries other than France.

Clara is much prettier than Cara.

GibbonWithAnAppleBobbingBibOn Mon 19-Oct-09 19:27:05

I did not say it should be excluded. I gave an opinion (as was asked for in the OP)

God strike me down for thinking of a potato.

BonsoirAnna Mon 19-Oct-09 19:27:14

Livia is another very pretty and underused name.

iwascyteenagewerewolf Mon 19-Oct-09 19:28:18

It's not often I say this but they're all lovely Cara and Lily are my favourites from your list, but you have my blessing to use any of the others too grin
