We finally have a shortlist of 3 names for our little girl due in a few weeks:

India
Claudia
Merryn

Middle name is most likely going to be Fay (my mother's name)

I really love all of them but my reservations are:
India - a bit too leftfield?
Claudia - a bit harsh/stuffy?
Merryn - a bit plain?

These are only little niggles so really struggling to choose!
I just need some opinions! No holds barred smile

Have name-changed especially for this thread, so's not to out myself! My name is Claudia and I know no others. I really like my name and have always had lots of lovely comments about it. So you can guess which one of your choices I'd go for!

Claudia is lovely. I much prefer it to Merryn or India, neither of which I care for.

Claudia was also the name of the main character in one of my favourite children's books, so it has only positive associations for me. smile

I love Claudia too. I dislike the other names.

All nice, prefer Merryn from your list.

Claudia for sure smile

I know a Merryn and 2 Mirrins.

Lovely, of yours I'd definitely go with that!

I don't like Merryn at all. I like India, but think Claudia is beautiful.

i think claudia-fay would be a nice double barrel name

This is all brilliant thank you! Not any closer to deciding but it has at least prompted some deeper discussion with my DH who has been a bit flippant about the whole decision making process!!
Will definitely take the advice about waiting until baby arrives before making final decision.

I don't care for Merryn at all India and Claudia are both beautiful names . I prefer India to Claudia but only by a smidgen .
