    5 questions maybe you can answer...

    Thanks in advance for your input!

    1. How hipster is Matilda? Seriously? I didn't like it for the longest, and then I read part of a book about William the Conqueror's wife Matilda and now I think it's all historical and powerful and I like the nn Milla and my husband actually digs it. But I'm afraid it's just so my-daddy-has-a-beard-and-we-live-in-Austin. WDYT? Honestly? And do u like Milla as a nn?

    2. Do you see Beatrice getting quite popular? As in top 100 popular?

    3. What do you think of Isadora? What nicknames do you like, besides Dora?

    4. I like Elsa pronounced ELL-zuh. I know in the US people will say ELL-suh. What do you think of spelling it Elza? Does that make it seem made-up and gross? (I've given up on Melisende pronounced mel-ee-ZEN-duh but I sometimes make my husband say it with a German accent and sigh.)

    5. What do you think of the nicknames Vera and Via for Veronica? Which do you like better and why?

    Thanks!
    Mrs. H.

    1. I don't think it's hipster at all! It's very popular in England it seems, and I think that shows it has a fair amount of class! I like Milla as a nickname for it, I much prefer that to Tilly or Millie.

    2. I'm not sure on this one, I do know a few Beatrice's, they're all around my age (14-18), but I think perhaps Beatrice Miller off of X Factor USA might cause it to spike in popularity.

    3. I like it :-) I don't like Dora at all though, Isadora could become Isa or Sadie though

    4. I'm not crazy about Elza, I think Elsa is fine as it is, and I'm Canadian, but live near the NY border, and on first instinct, I said Ell-zuh, so depends on what state you're from really.

    5. I like Via better, my mum and I watch a soap opera from England together called Coronation Street, and one character, who I really, truly loathed, was named Vera (she's since been killed off, I danced around the room....yeah). It reminds me of her, and she was a cranky, rude old lady. Via on the other hand is cute! I have a friend who's middle name is Veronica, she's considered going by that rather than Elizabeth (her first name) and she's considered Nicki as well


    Hope this helped!

    Wow! Did not know they showed Corrie in Canada!

    1. Matilda is climbing the ranks I think so it technically can't be 'hipster' any more. It's no longer 'so obscure/uncool that it's cool' (like say... Vladimir) it's too 'mainstream'. I like Matty as a nickname, not a fan of Milla.

    2. Beatrice is about as popular as Matilda I think.

    3. I like Isadora. I'd go for Sadie or Dory.

    4. I prefer soft 's' Elsa.

    5. I prefer Vero for Veronica or Ronny.

    1. I like Matilda and really like Milla, as well as Millie. I don't know if it's hipster or not, as I'm still not 100% sure I know how to identify hipsters. :-)

    2. I can see Beatrice continuing to rise in popularity, but not to super-high levels. It's already in or close to the top 100 in Canada, but I'm not sure we're trendsetters...

    3. I like Isadora. Dora is a sweet nn, and I like Isa as well (pn EE-sa).

    4. Elza seems wacky to me. It feels like itshould be short for Demelza or something, whereas Elsa is a standalone name. I don't hear a huge difference between ELL-zuh and ELL-suh, though it may be my accent.

    5. I prefer Vera and like Renrose, I love Vero. Via is kind of cute, though if it was written down, I wouldn't know whether to say VEE-ah or VIE-ah (like the word).

    Haha, Corrie is actually quite popular around here. A few years ago someone even made a documentary about about Coronation Street's popularity: http://www.cbc.ca/documentaries/pass...1/corriecrazy/

    Yes they do :-) have done since the 1970's! my mum's parents moved here from Kent 3 years before she was born, and when Corrie was being shown here, my nan + and Granana (my mum's grandma) watched it with my mum, and she's always watched it since! I've been watching practically since birth, haha. I love some of the names off Corrie though, Violet, Bethany, Liam Connor (I loved him), Valerie (which is also my nan's name), Rosie+Sophie as a sibset, the list goes on.
