Here's the shortlist of baby names I'm considering that I generated with Mumsnet's Baby Name Finder. Let me know what you think.

Girls

Cecilia
Eleanora
Helena

Prefer Celia to Cecilia.

Think Agatha a bit brave, to me it is always preceded by 'Aunt'.

Love Helena, but think Eleanora (El-eh-nor-a or El-eh-a-nor-a?) too many syllables - just over-egging the Eleanor pudding a bit iyswim egg.

Like Helena.

Prefer Eleanor & Celia or Cecily.

Agatha = my favourite, but I've got one so am biased! Didn't want to shorten it initially but she does end up getting called Aggie most of the time. It really suits her and despite my mum's hmm reaction when we told her I've since been surprised by the number of people who have said 'ooh, I love that name' or 'that was on our shortlist'.

I have an Agatha too, lovely lovely name.

I also quite like Cecilia, but primarily because it always makes me think of lovely Suggs...

I like Helena, but not the others

Celia is nicer than Cecelia

Agatha is a great name if the person can pull it off i.e. be beautiful, strong personality, lots of confidence. But I love it! grin
