    Too cute?

    I still love the names in my signature - but I've seen a lot of comments calling them cutesy and/or overused. I feel like I'm second guessing my favourites list. What do you think of them?

    Millie
    Rosie
    Sophie
    Mia
    Poppy
    Ella
    Gemma
    Georgia
    Ava
    Elsie
    Daisy
    Ruby
    Freya
    Violet
    Isla
    Holly
    Lily
    Gracie (don't like Grace)
    Lottie
    Emma
    Aimee
    Maisie
    Posy (not liking Josephine as much)
    Amelie
    Sylvie

    Thank you - if you have any favourites off the list, please share them

    Florence, Edith, Doris, Alice, Elsie, Lillian, Violet, Mabel, Ada, Evelyn
    Eva, Edna, Minnie, Martha, Amelia, Phoebe, Sylvia, Hazel, Agatha, Beatrice


    Matthew, Ernest, Louis, Christopher, Andrew, Albert, George, Joshua, James, Harry
    Freddie, Henry, Adam, Teddy, Daniel, Percy, Mark, Walter, Stanley, Liam

    Yes, they are cute names. Yes, they may be quite popular. But don't second guess your favourites. They are your favourites, not anyone else's. You are allowed to like what ever names you please. I am constantly second guess my favourites, but then I have to remind myself that they are my favourites, and they belong to me.

    The names I love off your list:
    Millie
    Gemma
    Elsie
    Daisy
    Isla
    Violet
    Holly
    Lily
    Lottie
    Emma
    Aimee
    Posy
    Amelie
    Sylvie

    And Olive, in your signature

    Have you heard of the blogger, Katie or Skunkboy Creatures? She has a little girl called Poesy Wren, which is a gorgeous name.

    I know a Gracie, and she wouldn't really suit Grace as much as she does with Gracie.

    Some of these do seem too cute to me, although I do like most of them. They just wouldn't all age well without a more formal form...

    Millie -- needs long form (Camille, Millicent, Amelia)
    Rosie -- needs long form, or just Rose
    Sophie -- borderline, but I think it stands on its own
    Mia -- stands on its own
    Poppy -- too cute
    Ella -- stands on its own
    Gemma -- stands on its own
    Georgia -- definitely stands on its own, nothing cutesy about this one
    Ava -- definitely stands on its own
    Elsie -- too cute, prefer Elsa
    Daisy -- I want this one to stand on its own, but I don't think it quite does
    Ruby -- trendy, but stands on its own
    Freya -- definitely stands on its own
    Violet -- stands on its own
    Isla -- trendy, but stands on its own
    Holly -- stands on its own
    Lily -- stands on its own, although I prefer Lillian
    Gracie (don't like Grace) -- too cute
    Lottie -- too cute
    Emma -- definitely stands on its own
    Aimee -- a bit dated for me, but stands on its own
    Maisie -- love it, but too cute without formal name
    Posy (not liking Josephine as much) -- too cute
    Amelie -- borderline for me, but I think it stands on its own
    Sylvie -- stands on its own

    If you don't want to use longer/formal names for any of these, my favorites are Sylvie, Emma, Georgia, Freya, and Violet.
