I like Mabel

DoNutSweatTheSmallStuff · 30/01/2023 17:44

Gracie is my favourite from those.

LaLuz7 · 30/01/2023 17:47

Alicia - like
Gracie - too cutesy for an adult
Penny - ok
Keira/Ciara - ok
Eloise - meh
Lydia - like
Mabel - old woman
Winnie - dislike
Heidi - dislike
Elsie - meh
Celia - like

Snowybeach · 30/01/2023 17:48

I like Eloise and Heidi.

StopFeckingFaffing · 30/01/2023 17:50

Eloise, Lydia, Celia & Heidi are my favourites

I'm not a fan of Alicia (much prefer Alice)
Gracie is ok as a pet name for Grace but a bit twee as an actual name

I only like Penny/Winnie as shortening for Penelope/Winifred

Elsie, Mabel, Keira are 'ok'

Indecisivemamabear · 30/01/2023 18:48

Thank you for all your replies so far!

Those who like Celia do you like Cecelia or Celia best?

Alicia - Aleesha/Alissia confusion
Gracie - ok if Grace on BC
Penny - ok but short for Penelope
Keira/Ciara - not keen
Eloise - bit of a mouthful and yet another Ellie
Lydia - like, but will be Lyds
Mabel -not keen, seems frumpy
Winnie - like
Heidi - like
Elsie - not keen, sounds like someone loud
Celia - much nicer than Cecilia, but I prefer Delia

MajorCarolDanvers · 30/01/2023 20:22

Grace is nice

But not Gracie

VerbenaGirl · 30/01/2023 20:24

I like Gracie, Mabel and Elsie.

VanillaLife · 30/01/2023 20:40

Alicia - I always imagine a bitchy teen when I hear this name!

Gracie - I like it, but it’s more of a child’s name to me, I can imagine as an adult they would shorten it to Grace.

Penny - It’s ok, but would rather Penelope.

Keira/Ciara - I really like this name.

Eloise - I like it but am never sure if I am pronouncing it correctly.

Lydia - I like this name a lot.

Mabel - too elderly lady sounding to me.

Winnie - The pooh. But I also dislike the name. It sounds frumpy to me.

Heidi - I really like it. It sounds fresh and I think it would suit all ages.

Elsie - ok

Celia - no

Mumofgirls2017 · 30/01/2023 21:31

Gracie- not a fan
Penny- like as short Penelope

RainLover · 30/01/2023 21:34

I prefer Celia to Ceceila- it just seems nicer and less frilly

Keira/Ciara - nice enough, Ciara is prettier
Eloise - she’ll end to Ellie, there are SO many
Lydia - nice
Mabel - ok
Winnie - if it’s short for Winifred
Heidi - can’t stand it
Elsie - twee and overdone

Penguinsaregreat · 02/02/2023 22:16

Lydia and Eloise are gorgeous.
I like Alicia not only when pronounced Alice-see-ah I really dislike the other pronounciations.
Gracie and Penny are too nicknamey for me.
Winnie is awful. Elsie not much better. The remainder are ok.

Roseyposeypudding · 02/02/2023 23:11

Mabel, Winnie

Eloise, Lydia, Celia
