Hi all,

Please could you help us narrow down our girls list...we still have a few weeks, but I'm finding it very difficult already! Honest opinions most welcome! smile

Aimee
Alyssa
Amelia
Chelsea
Emily
Emma
Erin
Imogen
Keira
Paige
Peyton
Reese

DH also said this morning that he likes Olivia, and when I mentioned Alice he said that one was nice too. So my list seems to be getting longer, not shorter!

Many thanks for any feedback! smile

I only like emily, emma, keira and alice from your list. These are all great names.

Vikkijayne2507 Sun 12-Jan-14 23:27:55

imagon Emma are my faves on your list

MummyBeerest Sun 12-Jan-14 23:02:41

Imogen, Alice, Amelia are my picks!

Vijac Sun 12-Jan-14 22:54:15

Amelia, Emma and Imogen are my favourites. Plus Amy, if spelt the regular way. Also like Olivia. Chelsea is awful, as is Paige IMO.

Sammie101 Sun 12-Jan-14 22:47:05

Alice, Imogen, emily or Emma. Not really keen on any of the others tbh

Love Erin! But very biased as just sitting with my beautiful 6 month Erin in my arms at the moment...

DuchessofKirkcaldy Sun 12-Jan-14 10:22:28

I like Erin and Alice best. Imogen is ok.
not keen on Aimee but like Amy.

miffybun73 Sun 12-Jan-14 10:20:08

I really like Emily, Emma, Alice and Olivia. Emily is my favourite (DD's name)

Erin, Amelia and Imogen are quite nice too.

I'm really not keen on:

Alyssa
Chelsea
Keira
Paige
Peyton
Reese

Amelia Olivia and Emily all very popular names at the moment. Doesn't have to be a bad thing per say but might help to rule them out when your list is so long. Erin also gaining popularity

From you list I like Aimée ( of you use it please use the accent!!! Its s french n'aime so do it the french Way lol!) doesn't sound americam to me - amie is American IMO

Also like Emma and Keira

Don't like Payton or Reece at all sorry

Imogen nice but don't like the nns Imo or Immy

I love the name Olivia. If a friend hadn't recently used this name for her little girl I would have used it for ours. It's so beautiful.

Good luck deciding. It's such a big decision isn't it! x

twinklestar2 Sat 11-Jan-14 12:42:44

I like Alyssa and then Erin.

What about Alicia?

HyvaPaiva Sat 11-Jan-14 12:36:24

Erin is beautiful

Lainybug23 Sat 11-Jan-14 12:32:58

Thank you for all the feedback smile it is really appreciated! Will have to give this a lot more thought!

Emily or olivia

Best piece of advice I ever heard when naming girls was to pick a name that suits both a small girl and the woman that girl could grow up to be. Anything too cutesy will sound really silly on a 21 year old trying to be taken seriously in a professional career. Not keen on Aimee/Amy for that reason - a bit of a 'young' name, doesn't sit so well on an adult.

Also not keen on Peyton/Reese - sound a bit naff. (Sorry)

Hate Chelsea (but this is because I used to be a teacher and one of the vilest classroom bullies I ever taught was a Chelsea - has really negative associations for me.)

Alice is lovely - really pretty and classy
Emma and Olivia also nice.

Reese reminds me of the Reeses peanut butter cups

brokenhearted55a Fri 27-Dec-13 18:09:00

Imogen Alice is a nice name.

Peyton is the worst.

Aimee - Not keen.
Alyssa - Like it.
Amelia - Not my style.
Chelsea - Not overly keen.
Paige - It's ok. .
Emily - Don't like it very much.
Emma - Cute.
Erin - Love this one! It's pretty
Imogen - Love it! Wish OH agreed with me on this one grin
Keira - It's ok. Doesn't jump out at me.
Peyton - It's quite nice. I like American names though.
Reese - I actually quite like it but you'd always get "witherspoon?" questions.

JuniorMint Fri 27-Dec-13 10:13:53

Erin and Alice are top of my short list!

NadiaWadia Fri 27-Dec-13 05:17:04

Emily and Imogen are lovely.

Reese is awful - for a girl.

TheZeeTeam Fri 27-Dec-13 03:39:28

Btw, re spelling. Isn't Peyton the masculine spelling? Peyton Manning?!

TheZeeTeam Fri 27-Dec-13 03:36:50

Payton is very unpopular on here. That said, the 17 yo Payton I know is literally the coolest, funniest and kindest girl I've ever met. She is a friend of Ds1 and rocks her name.

So, I choose Payton!

I love Emma and Alice. Top of my girls' names list =)
