Hi, I'm on my 4th pregnancy and am 37+4weeks and have yet too decide on a name! What do you think of Scarlett, Eliza or Natasha for a girl. And Elijah, Jesse or Isaac for a boy. Which do you all prefer? HELP!

Natasha is the only one I like.

I think Scarlett is one of those trendy names that will forever mark her as a child of this decade - Eliza is much nicer IMO.

Jesse will be fraught with problems as people will hear 'Jessie' and assume he's a girl...

Scarlett - girl
Jesse - boy

Nice names :-)

Sorry, don't like any of the girls names. Like all of the boys names

like them all but adore Natasha and Elisa and think Isaac and Elijah are coo. agree Jesse confused wth girl's name but still like it. Wouldn'tgo for it if you have complicated surname though as childwould go through life spelling everything out!

the boys' names are all lovely.
I like Eliza for a girl - Scarlett nice but very of the moment.

Posie1972 Mon 24-Sep-07 10:06:51

Eliza is so lush!

Natasha is so trash!

Anna8888 Mon 24-Sep-07 10:14:11

Eliza is very pretty. Don't like any of the others.

Eliza definitely for a girl - Scarlett is a bit 'of the moment' and Natasha a bit old fashioned.

I would go Isaac for a boy - I really like Jesse but I think he'll be teased, I can give or take Elijah.

EmsMum Mon 24-Sep-07 11:28:39

Natasha is nice. With Eliza, I can't get past My Fair Lady connotations. Someone put Elisa with an s, don't know if it was a typo but looked like an improvement!

Jesse... 'you great big Jessie' asking for trouble. Isaac is the best of that lot if you want OT boy's name.

My dp was nearly called Jesse (it was his dad's choice - he's into Westerns). His actual name (his mum's choice) is quite unusual too, but he's always saying how glad he is that his dad didn't get his way. Don't do it!

Eliza and Isaac are lovely, by the way.

wheelybug Mon 24-Sep-07 11:41:34

Eliza I love (then Scarlett, then Natasha - although all nice)

Isaac for a boy I think (then Elijah, then Jesse).

Lulabellx1 Mon 24-Sep-07 12:00:12

Eliza for a girly. Very Victorian, cute for a little girl yet classy when she grows up. I really like it.

Elijah is the best out of the three you have for boys. But to be honest... i keep thinking of Elijah Wood. Im afraid i dont like Isaac, sounds short and harsh when you say it and Jesse is a bit girly. Would be OK if he is a masculine boy, but if not then he could get picked on with that one.

HonoriaGlossop Mon 24-Sep-07 12:27:57

I LOVE Eliza, it's so pretty. You HAVE to go for that. Scarlett is not so classy and Natasha just not so pretty or special, I think. Also Natasha will inevitably be shortened to Tash at school.......

Isaac for a boy from your choices. I'm also loving Louis (not pronounced Lewis!) at the moment.

MamaGisOutOfTheCloset Mon 24-Sep-07 12:28:41

I like Eliza and Natasha

don't loike any of the boys names

Anna8888 Mon 24-Sep-07 12:29:46
