I saw Ebba as a name decorated on a wall in some home magazine or blog in a child's room and my first thought was "Whaaaat?" And then I couldn't stop thinking about it, and it's definitely grown on me. (I also passed a street called Elba, and that's grown on me too. Originally I only liked Elva, Eris and Erin as 4 letter E names.) I'm not a big fan of Astrid. A long time ago on here I saw someone point out it sounds similar to a$$ turd, and I was put off after that. Unfortunate, because it is a good name. Do you like Ingrid?

I love Astrid- it sounds so crisp and fresh and unique, feminine but not froufrou. I find Ebba a bit clunky but it does have charm. Not sure about Ebba but my friend's middle name is Astrid and she said people would call her "asteroid". The "as-TREE" pronunciation is so pretty! Never heard it before though. I would love to meet an Astrid.~Love names, literature, royals and horses~ <3

Thank you for your thoughts about Ebba and Astrid. We like Ebba most.
We also considered Alma or Agnes, they are also popular baby names here (ranked 29 vs 12) but I guess in UK and US they are seen as dated names, or?
Some of you have suggested Etta, in Sweden it would be strange to have this name because Etta is the same as the number one.

Astrid debated for those reasons. It's not even pronounced the same way.Two small people, Mila Arden and Cato Bennett.
If I had a baby tomorrow...
Atlas Adair or Lyra Sylvie
