    Name suggestions and opinions.

    Hi all

    I was just wondering if I could have some advice, and suggestions on my girls names list (not that I actually keep a top 10 or so list). I am a loooooong way off having kids but this list is names I would have a daughters name list, rather than names I like but couldn't ever name someone (ie Margaret nn Maggie or Greta for family reasons)

    So here are some of my top names:-

    Aleydis
    Adalia
    Amelia
    Beatrice (NN Bee or Bay depending on personality)
    Dorothea (Nn Thea)
    Elsie
    Eliza
    Freya
    Ivy
    Jemima
    Jane
    Lila
    Mabel
    Magdalena (nn Maggie or Lena)
    Martha
    Ottilie
    Poppy
    Romilly

    Thoughts, any you would remove or any you think I've overlooked and would like

    Any opinions positive or negative are opinionated

    If it matters I'm British so names like Freya and Jemima are relatively common-place.

    Thank you!!!

    Have you thought about Theodora? Thea or Thora would make marvelous nicknames.

    From your list I like:
    Amelia
    Beatrice
    Eliza
    Freya
    Jane
    Ottilie

    I would switch out Jemima for Gemma, not because I'm American, but I just prefer Gemma's sound.
    I would use Amabel rather than Mabel because I feel it makes more elegant.

    Hi, Thanks for your input - it's interesting that you all said Beatrice, Eliza and Jane were in your favourites (with Amelia, Freya and Ottilie coming close behind) as they are possibly my top 3

    I have thought of Theadora, but I don't like it quite as much a dorothea. Not too keen on Gemma or Amabel.
