I prefer Evangeline! Both are lovely, but Evelyn is getting very popular in my area, so I find Evangeline a bit more unexpected.
I'm not American but love Julienne and am only vaguely aware of the cooking term. Have you ever seen the tv show 'Call the Midwife'? I love it, and am reminded of the lovely sister Julienne who is so...
I voted for Esme! I also love Alice, Cora, Eve and Annabelle. Where I am (Australia), Eve and Annabelle are both very popular and have been for some time.
I'm in the minority but have always had a thing for Elinor! I think the spelling sort of freshens up the more old fashioned and popular Eleanor. I've always loved Aunt Elinor in the 'Inkheart' series...

This is interesting - longer names with a nn seem to be winning!
I guess I don't like the idea of a nn feeling 'contrived' - ie, 'This is Clementine, we call her Minnie', or 'This is Susannah, we...

Thanks for your opinions! I pretty much agree with everyone and am confused, haha!
I hasn't really thought about shorter names being more popular - and then not having nn options if there are...

We'll be ttc this year and I'm struggling with this question! I love the flow and sound of longer names, but then I'm not sure about nn's! I'm starting to think that a shorter name could be easier to...
A vote for Emmeline!

I voted for Georgia, Isabelle, Charlotte and Elsa. I hope you don't mind the multiple votes! I think all of these names are a gorgeous match with Louisa, but I particularly like Elsa. I agree with...
I agree with everyone that the first syllable is problematic and could lead to teasing. I also see it as masculine. There was a sort of famous Australian international relations professor called...
Hmm these are only vaguely husband approved and are subject to much change!
Eliza Holiday or Sybilla Eve

My favourite is Esther, closely followed by Edith! I think Bonnie and Sally are perfectly useable, just not to my taste. Phyllis and Lois seem very dated and difficult to pull off - plus their sounds...

I'm torn between Cora Elizabeth and Lorelei Grace!

I voted for Edith Maeve, but also love the Maeve combo's and Beatrix Joy! I do find Evelyn a bit matchy with Lyndsey - and also find Evelyn pretty trendy! It's top 100 where I am, and part of the Eve...

I don't know if I'm able to come up with anything new! I second Lorelai, Elowen, Elodie, Eloisa and Magnolia for Lola - gorgeous! And with a sister named Esme, Mirabelle, Mabel, Marigold or Mariel!
I'm swooning - two of my favourite names!! If I could only convince my husband how lovely they are! I like both Mirabel & Mirabelle - I used to prefer the streamlined version but recently the -belle...
I only know one Bailey - and it's a dog!
I recently met my first Hazel - an adorable 18 month year old. She was seriously so cute and the name really grew on me! While I think the name is getting trendy (Emily Blunt and John Krasinski...

I've never met a Declan! I know two men named Miles - both in their twenties. I'm in Australia, East Coast

Hmm how about Rafferty with Maeve? You also can't go wrong with August. Wishing you all the best!
I vote for Alessandra! I was born in the 80's and went to school with 7 Alexandra's all nn'ed Alex, so it feels a little dated and tired to me. But I do appreciate that it's a classic. I love the...

I'm 28 and have never actually heard the song - but I still think of it immediately! I can imagine that my family would sing it at us if we used the name. But it probably is fading out
I've only had one naming dream - we had a little boy named Abraham nn Bram. I'd never considered it before and now it's on my list! (although I prefer Abram!). I told my husband and he thought it was...
