I quite like all of them apart from Penelope, which is dreadful to my ear. Hmm, in order I'd go for:

Cordelia
Tabitha
Clementine
Beatrix
Juno
.

Penelope

SnowProbs Tue 11-Dec-12 20:58:02

I like Penelope, Beatrix and Cordelia.

For me, Clemetine is pretty but just too 'orange'....and Juno is pretentious.

PuppyMonkey Tue 11-Dec-12 20:58:45

Like cordelia and tabitha

I like all of them. <helpful>

Why did my <<helpful>> not work?

Wtf??? hmm

banterbus Tue 11-Dec-12 21:00:06

Beatrix is my fave nn Bea smile

RayanneGraff Tue 11-Dec-12 22:24:47

Cordelia - love - seriously considered for DD but was put off by lack of obvious nickname - maybe Cora/Cori?
Clementine - lovely - could be Clem or Minty
Juno - but faddy for me, makes me think of the tim
Beatrix - good but prefer Beatrice myself
Tabitha - not so keen
Penelope - love

RayanneGraff Tue 11-Dec-12 22:25:05

bit faddy

RayanneGraff Tue 11-Dec-12 22:25:28

oh no.

makes me think of the film

I'm off to bed

birdofthenorth Tue 11-Dec-12 22:31:20

Love Tabitha, like Juno, the rest re nice but a bit girly/frilly for my taste (although I would also put Tabitha into that category, so my tastes are a bit inconsistent, sorry!)

TheCraicDealer Tue 11-Dec-12 22:37:36

Penelope- Love, how cute would a wee Penny running about be?
Cordelia- Love, especially if you shorten to Cora....or Delia, but she may have people asking her how to boil eggs.
Tabitha- Really don't like. Makes me think of cats in clothes.
Beatrix- Meh. Just meh.
Juno- Oh No. She would go through life with people going, "oh, LIKE THE FILM?"

FriggFRIGG Tue 11-Dec-12 22:39:24

Love them all.
Great choices!

WonkyWilly Wed 12-Dec-12 10:35:16

Thanks for the comments so far.....yeah it is quite difficult to choose!

Love all of them except for Tabitha

Like Tabitha and Beatrix and quite like Juno. Dont like the rest.

Startail Wed 12-Dec-12 10:41:53

I like them all except Juno
and Tabitha which is a name for a tabby cat, not a child.

Would go for Beatrice though as Beatrix makes.me think "Beer Tricks"

Startail Wed 12-Dec-12 10:44:32

Juno is queen of the Roman Gods and married to her brother.

Generally, there is a dodgy aspect to all Greek and Roman Gods.

They are probably best avoided.

bigbluebump Wed 12-Dec-12 10:56:29

Love them all, especially Cordelia, Beatrix and Clementine. Juno is my least favourite.

WonkyWilly Wed 12-Dec-12 16:35:52

grin @ startail

badtime Wed 12-Dec-12 17:01:26

Cordelia, Beatrix and Penelope ane good.

Juno is a film, Tabitha is a cat or a toddler witch and Clementine is a small orange.

LondonElfInFestiveCheerBoots Wed 12-Dec-12 17:34:04

Love most of them but hate Clementine, can't stand it, and Cordelia isn't a favourite.

The rest are all on my list, in this order:
Beatrix (nn Trixie), Penelope (nn Nell), Juno, Tabitha (Tabs/Kitty (but that one is cos I'm odd))

I like the Greek and Roman god's names (mainly, could probably leave Uranus), gives them a head start on family weirdness grin

MadSleighLady Wed 12-Dec-12 17:41:44

Cordelia & Beatrix/ce are my joint favourites. Clementine is pretty but I would go for Clemence/Clemency/Clementia for orange-related reasons. Wouldn't use Tabitha (cat), Penelope (don't like Penny) or Juno (sounds like a boy, which I know is totally irrational because it clearly isn't, I think it reminds me of Bruno, Inigo, Pluto etc.)
