    1. Avoid initials BJ
    2. Yes, it would be confusing, especially since accent marks aren't usually included on legal documents, school registrations, etc. I do know a girl named Thea, pronounced Tay-uh, and she doesn't seem to have any issues.
    3. Yes, those names are fairly popular here in California, but more on school-aged children than on young ones. Still, I would steer clear.

    Good luck!

    Cecily
    Sophie
    Julia/Juliet
    Téa
    Madeleine
    Olivia
    Bridget


    My questions are...
    1. Our last name starts with J, is BJ a bad initial combination for a little girl?
    2. Do you think that Téa (pronounced Tay-a) will often be confused with Tea "Tee"( like the hot beverage)?
    3. How popular are Madeleine, Sophie and Olivia where you live?
    Olivia and Sophia are both VERY popular where I live in northern Florida. I would nix both of those names are use them as a middle name. If you like the -ia ending, try Amelia or Aria or Mia or Lydia instead.

    I love the names Madeleine and Bridget. Bridget has always been one of my favorites.

    Not a huge fan of Cecily, Julia, or Tea but I think that people would be able to pronounce it correctly.

    I think the name Cecily is so lovely - unusual but pretty. It was my husbands mothers name and I feel I should use it but you do know the name derives from a latin name meaning Blind........Just doesn't have the right meaning for a name for a little girl - just my thoughts.....

    Cecily - LOVE this name! I think it's perfect, but have never met a child with the name
    Sophie - very popular where I live, nevertheless, I think its cute.
    Julia/Juliet - I like Juliet, but I'm not a fan of Julia
    Téa - If I didn't know any French, I would have pronounced it "tee", and I think most people will
    Madeleine - Madelyn is very popular where I live, but Madeleine isn't. However, there are a million kids with Maddie/Maddy no matter what they come from
    Olivia - very popular where I live. For some reason have never liked this name, I prefer Livia or Lilly
    Bridget - cute! Don't hear it very often anymore

    Cecily is definitely my pick from your list!

    1. I would avoid those initials
    2. yes, I think pronunciation would be a problem. also, most people leave off accent marks when writing names, so it would look like tea (Tee) instead of Téa.
    3. They are pretty popular where I live (Midwest US), but they are still good names!

    Cecily - Beautiful, uncommon, and classy--I adore it
    Sophie - A lovely name, very familiar.
    Julia/Juliet - I've seen several Juliets and Juliettes recently, but no baby Julias. I like both.
    Téa - Charming--I'm a big fan of Thea, and this is a sweet, similar option.
    Madeleine - I like this spelling.
    Olivia - Not my taste, though I love the nn "Liv".
    Bridget - I love this one. I like my spelling (Brigid) even better, but Bridget feels fresh and a bit spunky.


    My questions are...
    1. Our last name starts with J, is BJ a bad initial combination for a little girl? Not really. It's not ideal, but it doesn't matter much. Yes, kids are cruel, but they always find something to pick on. My initials are BS, so I always write BCS. My mother's initials are PMS, so she always writes PS.
    2. Do you think that Téa (pronounced Tay-a) will often be confused with Tea "Tee"( like the hot beverage)? Yes, but there is no perfectly safe name. Even Anna could be either Ann-a or Onna. I actually like initials as a nickname anyway ("Where's T? Has K eaten lunch?" etc), and she'll get used to correcting people with a smile.
    3. How popular are Madeleine, Sophie and Olivia where you live? Madeleine's popular with all ages (in a variety of spellings), Sophie feels popular because of Sophia, but I only know a few of either. Sophie is a very common puppy name among my friends. Olivia also feels popular, and I know a few.
