Thanks for your help last week. Beautiful dark haired girl now arrived. Narrowed it down to

Cecily (Ceci for short, anna as middle name)

Initial thoughts???

Elsa my fav

not keen on Thea or Cecily

Don't mind Anna or Helena

congratulations btw!

I love Helena, it's classic, and I also like Elsa which is short, sweet and pretty. Not so keen on Thea (I think middle aged dry and dusty academic) and Anna is just a bit dull really!

I like Thea and Elsa.

Anna or Helena are my favourites.

Not keen on Thea or Cecily, and ambivalent about Elsa.

I absolutely adore Helena and Anna, beautiful, classic names. The others are nice but these two are fab.

I love Thea and Anna.

Another vote for Helena or Anna.

Elsa = the lion in Born Free. That's yonks old i know but I just immediately think that.

needanamefast Fri 06-Nov-09 19:09:54

Anna is a family name as well.....

needanamefast Fri 06-Nov-09 19:12:19

BTW want something elegant and timeless not faddy but not old womanish either....

Anna and Thea, I love

Helena is very pretty

Elsa will always be a lioness to me grin

Cecily , I just don't like

dd2 may well have been Anna had it not been a bit too matchy-matchy with our surname

I do rather like Cecily though

Elsa or even Elva is lovely.

They're all lovely except Cecily. Thea or Elsa get my vote. Congratulations!

What a lovely list. the only slight comment is that I prefer Elena to Helena, but otherwise all beautiful elegant names.

Only one option given with a middle name - betcha go for Cecily wink

FWIW I love Helena, especially with Nell as a nickname.

Congratulations :-)
