Lots about these names already on here but which is your preferred! Baby due tomorrow and I still can't make my mind up!

Tomorrow! - congratulations - good luck.

Imogen is my favourite because it's one of my very top names

Zoe also lovely just not as lovely as Imogen

If you look at the official statistics, the numbers of babies called Imogen has been falling year on year for ages now. It's really underused these days compared to, say, 10 years ago.

Isabel is also nice but my last choice

Imogen will be well outside the top 50 by the time the 2020 official stats are released

Zoe. Really like it.
Isabel is classic and I like it a lot, but it’s more popular.
Imogen- don’t like it. I know a few not-nice ones of a certain type in their 20s, which has put me off. It hasn’t a good image now.

Zoe for me. I like short, neat names.

Imogen is my favourite! I love it. Don't know any but always loved the name so much! Lots of nickname options if you wanted to use them too. Perfect Shakespearean classic.

Best of luck with the induction @Hirewiredays! 💐

Please come and update us

I love all of them but I don’t know any Imogen’s so I would go for that one!

I wanted Isabel; DH Imogen but she's 22 now so I think I'd go for Zoe which feels more contemporary. Or Xanthe.

A friend recently had a Zoe, I think it's lovely and probably quite unusual at the minute.

Imogen is my favourite girls name. If DS2 had been a girl he would have been called Imogen.

And congratulations in advance for later today. Hope it all goes well

Zoe. It means "life" and is an energetic yet classic name. The others are very fashionable and I think will date more, they are also a bit too wishy-washy for me. I like strong names.

Imogen. Isobel is nice but I really dislike Zoe.

Isabella, if your surname allows. Not keen on zoe or imogen. Wishing you well for the birth.
