Little sister to Tabitha.

Definitely Genevieve! with Vivi as a NN

Also going to say Genevieve - it goes beautifully with Tabitha.

Anything but Virginia! Genevieve is infinitely superior to Primrose though.

Genevieve- but how will you pronounce? May get confusion. 'gen- eh- veve' or ' Jon- a- ve-a' ( with a soft j/g)

Genevieve!

I love Primrose. The others are too long.

Primrose is awful. The others might be ok, i guess you have picked them because they are not too frilly for your circle.

Genevieve.

Don't use Virginia. She will not thank you for it.

Genevieve

Genevieve. Would definitely have been on my shortlist for a girl, such a lovely timeless name. Less keen on the others.

Primrose, gorgeous!

Genevieve!

I like Genevieve but we nixed it from our list because I know it wouldn't always be pronounced as I would want it to be (the correct, French pronunciation). She would end up as Jenner-veev.

Genevieve

Genevieve is beautiful.

I love Primrose, and I know a Tabitha who almost had a younger sister Primrose (she ended up a Marigold in the end after a few days of Primrose).
Not keen on Virginia at all, and don't like the pronounciation confusion that is possible with Genevieve.

Genevieve for me too, not Virginia, just imagining the 'are you are virgin' comments all through secondary school.

Genevieve is my favourite, then Primrose. Not a fan of Virginia though.

I think it would be unkind to name a child Virginia, the teasing would be inevitable.
