Girl names - again!

I'm expecting a baby girl and have started putting together a list of possible names. Unfortunately, nothing is really jumping out at me right now and I would love some input from all you Mumsnetters!

We tend to like quite traditional names - Beatrice and Maud are on our list - but I'm open to anything as long as it isn't too popular or trendy. Can you guys help me?!

I love Agnes and Agatha.

Have a DS with an A already so I won't get to use them.

Clementine is lovely too.

don't liek maud much, beatrice is nice. My mum wanted Mabel for me, but it didn't go with surname. That is old fashioned and quite sweet.

I really like Anna, Annabelle, Mabel, Eve, Eva, Morag, Jessica, Emily and Rebecca. I'm not so keen on Maud, but Beatrice is pretty. I know a lady called Beatrice and she's very nice.

Gabriella can be shortened to Gabby or Ella. It seems to suit all ages.

Amelia
Elizabeth
Charlotte (Lottie)
Sasha
Scarlett

These are my girls names, though DH won't agree to Sasha

jessicasmummy Mon 27-Jun-05 11:48:07

we are heading towards Chloe Alison for a girl.

dyzzidi Mon 27-Jun-05 11:49:14

I like Elizabeth as its after my gran but I like it shortened to Libby.

hunkermunker Mon 27-Jun-05 11:50:09

Is Ethel getting popular again?

Pollyanna Mon 27-Jun-05 11:51:19

Martha is a lovely name I think.
