I have 3 boys and currently pregnant with my first girl and naming her is proving to be extremely difficult. I thought it was hard for boys but I actually had my boys name picked this time before we found out the gender (which was a long time ago now) Iv never been this far along in my pregnancy and still not decided a name so to say I’m stressing is an understatement. I just don’t want to regret it.

so for a while now our choice was Hattie, but I can’t help think about the other names I really like.

my list is
Hattie
Goldie
Hazel
Beatrice
Winnie
and Daphne

what are peoples thoughts? My partner wants Hattie like originally decided but something just doesn’t feel 100 percent even tho I do really like it

Frances
Lucille
Lillian
Charlotte
Alice
Genevieve
Juliet
Caroline
Ella

I quite like your names but personally would want a longer, more formal name incase they don't want a cutsy ie name as an adult (I don't think i would like it)

Hattie - love Hattie as a shortening for Harriet or Henrietta. Also like Hettie

Goldie - I love Marigold and Goldie would be a cute nn

Hazel - nice enough, just not for me

Beatrice - like but prefer Beatrix as it has more spark

Winnie the witch - dds love these books so this is what i think of first. Cute as a shortening for Winter or Winnifred

Daphne - not a fan. Too scooby doo for me

Twoinapod · 01/04/2023 15:46

I like Hattie but would go for Harriet nn Hattie.

Beatrice is ok, prefer Beatrix though, nn Bea is lovely.

Daphne is ok.

I don’t like the others

BernadetteRostankowskiWolowitz · 01/04/2023 15:47

Goldie is the perfect name for a fish. Marigold is a lovely name.

Hattie is the best on your list.

LiquoriceAllsorts2 · 01/04/2023 16:14

Hattie is great but would probably go with Harriet formally and then use Hattie

Viviennemary · 01/04/2023 16:16

Hattie don't like
Goldie dire
Hazel really like
Beatrice ok
Winnie not keen
Daphne don't like

PennyPencils · 01/04/2023 16:42

Ah I LOVE Winnie so much.
I've just had a baby and actually secretly regret not using this one.

MerryChristmasToYou · 01/04/2023 17:06

Hattie short for Harriet is lovely.

Baby4due2023 · 01/04/2023 18:36

I wouldn’t have Hattie short for Harriet her name would be Hattie.

I think we will have to wait to see what she looks like which I really didn’t want to do as I think you can feel under pressure then to pick a name quickly and then regret it later on

Inspired from your list I like ..

Harriet Winsome - Hattie or Harty or Winnie
Beatrix Daphne - Trixie or Bea

Mumofgirls2017 · 03/04/2023 07:13

Hazel or Daphne!

brieandcrackers · 03/04/2023 18:39

Goldie would be lovely for a little one but I just can’t picture a middle-aged woman with that name. Hattie also strikes me as best suited to a little girl but it is a very sweet name!

Hazel would be my choice from your list - just timeless and lovely.

Congratulations on your imminent arrival 🙂

miniaturepixieonacid · 03/04/2023 23:56

Hattie - like as a nickname but can't see it as a standalone name.
Goldie - possibly as a cute nickname when very small but otherwise I wouldn't.
Hazel - like it.
Beatrice - quite like it. Bea is a cute nn.
Winnie - really don't like this. It's the noise a horse makes.
Daphne - like it.

I think I'd go with Hazel as you don't want to use Harriet as a full name for Hattie.

Thisgirlcan21 · 04/04/2023 00:13

Hattie or Beatrice

ourflagmeansdeath · 04/04/2023 19:55

Hattie - Not for me
Goldie - I know a Goldie! Think it's quite sweet
Hazel - Love Hazel. So beautiful
Beatrice - Same as Hazel. Like Tris for a nickname too
Winnie - Hmm not for me. Too babyish
Daphne - Bridgerton!! It's quite soft sounding, I like it

Favourites are Hazel and Beatrice.

HuggingtheHRT · 04/04/2023 20:05

Hazel is lovely. As is Beatrice (nn Bea)

ElizaSkye · 04/04/2023 20:34

I love Goldie!

also like Beatrice and just Bea.

Hettie?

Luredbyapomegranate · 04/04/2023 21:51

I don’t think you can possibly know for sure till you see her, so it’s only going to be a shortlist

I like Beatrice from your list

Daphne and Hazel are alright

I am not keen on little girl nns like Hattie and Winnie as full names personally

Goldie - I’d put that down to hormones OP. You aren’t having a retriever. Step away. Greta perhaps?

Sylvie
Zoe
Stevie
Marnie
Laurel
Sorrel
Katherine nn Kitty
Elizabeth or Lisbeth nn Lizbie / Buffy

LilacSloth · 04/04/2023 21:57

From your list I like Hazel best. Not that fond of Hattie. How about Hebe?

Mummyof287 · 04/04/2023 22:14

When she is here you will probably find it will click into place! I debated so many but never felt final til they arrived....out of your choices I like Hattie best, but Beatrice is also sweet.

Baby4due2023 · 04/04/2023 23:05

There is such a mix of peoples preferred names from my list on here I don’t know if it’s helped or made it worse haha
with my sons the latest I had picked a name was 30 weeks, I’m hoping it comes to me when she is born I don’t want to pick a name because I’m rushed and then later regret it. We shall see eek

Baby4due2023 · 04/04/2023 23:06

@Luredbyapomegranate lol I actually do really like Goldie

OP posts:
mumonherphone · 07/04/2023 10:52

Not Hattie or Goldie. I like Harriet but don't think Hattie works on it's own, same for Goldie it just seems like a nickname and not a full name, sorry. For some reason I don't feel the same about Winnie and think it could work on it's own.

Hazel and Beatrice are perfectly nice names but I think Daphne is my favourite by a mile, love it!
