Actually I also love Beatrix

bugoven Fri 14-Dec-12 17:40:38

I love Clementine, she would be "Tiny" to me.

Cordelia is gorgeous too.

I love Penelope (also Persephone ? sp)

LolliLouLou Fri 14-Dec-12 15:17:08

Juno is my favourite

shoobidoo Thu 13-Dec-12 21:17:36

I love Cordelia - beautiful, classic and underused. Tabitha is also lovely. Clementine is nice but I'm not keen on Clem or Clemmie for a girl (quite like Clem as male nickname for Clement).

Scanty yep Clementine was a name way way way before it was given to the fruit!

scandy Thu 13-Dec-12 13:17:35

Love Penelope and Juno. Dislike the others, especially Clementine (is that even a name? Is Satsuma also a name?)

WonkyWilly Thu 13-Dec-12 13:13:59

Yeah I like Celmency also!

SavoirFaire Wed 12-Dec-12 21:01:34

Love Penny/Penelope,
Then Clementine (I think I prefer Clemency tho)

then
Cordelia
Tabitha
Juno

in that order. Good choices though.

Really like Tabitha and Clementine. Wouldn't be remotely bothered by the whole Tabitha 'cat' connection! Clementine could be 'de-frilled' with nn Clem. Juno also appeals but suspect it's probably quite faddy. Cordelia has a nice sound and meaning but the whole King Lear thing puts me off. Not keen on Penelope or Beatrix.

Alisvolatpropiis Wed 12-Dec-12 20:17:43

Penelope
Cordelia
Tabitha
Juno
Clementine (I'm really not a fan of food/flower names)

WonkyWilly Wed 12-Dec-12 19:16:22

Londonelfinfestivecheerboots I like your idea of Kitty as a nn for Tabitha....tbh the cat thing sorta makes me like Tabitha even more....can I jump on the odd train wink

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.)

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

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.

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

grin @ startail

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

language Wed 12-Dec-12 10:37:59

Love all of them except for Tabitha

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

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

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

Love them all.
Great choices!

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?"
