Help me choose between these girls names?

Can't make up our minds between:

  • Charlotte
  • Heidi
  • Sophia
  • Tabitha

    Surname is a single syllable.

    DH likes Charlotte but we worry that it is very popular.

    Also, not sure what middle name to use with any of above.

    We have an Elizabeth (Lizzie) already.

    TIA

Charlotte is the same style and best match for Elizabeth.

Charlotte - pretty, goes nicely with Elizabeth, but very popular atm
Heidi - love it! Would love to use it, but don't think I have a thick enough skin to rebuff all the 'Heidi the goatherd' type comments.
Sophia - classy, beautiful, popular
Tabitha - least favourite, though still pretty. Would you think about something like Tamsin?

Does Lizzie have a middle name?

Other suggestions to go with Elizabeth;
Sarah
Rebecca
Abigail

I like Tabitha and Heidi best from that list. Actually, I love Charlotte too, but it is verrrrrrry popular and my friends teenage dd is now known as Chaz (not Lottie or Charlie etc) which puts me off a bit! Sophia pretty too. All very lovely names tbh.

Heidi and Tabitha both great.

Lottie and Lizzie a bit too similar IMO.

We have a Heidi. We haven't had any goatherd comments so far. This July we're going to Switzerland on holiday, perhaps then.

I like Charlotte and Sophia too, v pretty.

I like Heidi, it's so pretty. Not sure what middle name though, something like May/Mai?

My sis a Charlotte and she is called Shaz and her dd is Sophia and we call her SoSo ?
Think Heidi the only one that won't get shortened.

Charlotte goes very well with Elizabeth, and is the prettiest name.

Sophia also pretty.

Tabitha OK, but much more unusual than Elizabeth.

Heidi is horrid.

Thanks for the great feedback and suggestions.

Hadn't thought of abbreviations so much. Not keen on Chaz/Shaz, Lottie is v similar to Lizzie and we know loads of boy- Charlies. But I suppose we only have so much say in this area anyway!

LOL at "Heidi the Goatherd" comment. That's a blast from the past and thankfully unlikely for a TV revival. It's not putting me off!
