Anna
Thea
Cecily (Ceci for short, anna as middle name)
Helena
Elsa

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.

Congratulations!

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

TigerFeet Fri 06-Nov-09 19:20:07

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.

Anna
Thea
Cecily
Helena
Elsa

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

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

Congratulations :-)
