Baby Name Poll Results
Please pick vs. your top 5
Hello everyone! I’m 34 weeks pregnant(!) with a litte girl and me and my husband still haven’t decided on a name her. We have a long list of names that we really like but it’s so hard to narrow it down! We would really appreciate it if you could pick your 5 favorite and least favorite names and tell us why you think so. Thank you! Amanda and James
The Top Baby Name is...
Clementine- reminds me of the fruit, don’t find it very flattering
Bridgette- just find this name very ugly sorry, not pretty at all for me
Sally- Sounds outdated in my opinion
Scarlett- quite popular, reminds me of a ’scar’ and is quite harsh sounding I think.
I couldn’t choose my favourites I liked a lot of them!
Eliminate River, Jane, Mabel, Sally, and Margo
I don’t like anything else.
I also like Gemma
Eliminate Jenma, Eliza, Elsa, Livia, Zoey and Mila
Wow! So many great names!
My top 5:
Lyra - Very beautiful and unusual!
Eleanora - Great option since Eleanor is getting so popular, very cute!
Luna - Beautiful!
Clara - Love!
Gemma - So cute but will still age very well! Love it!
Jane - Pretty but boring
Evie - Prefer Ivy
Mabel - Not a fan at all
Theodora - A bit too much, prefer Thea!
Leia - Too star wars (sorry if you are a fan)
Ada, Clara, Hazel, Daisy, and Jane are my favorites.
You have a fantastic list, so I understand why it’s so hard to narrow down! But my favorites would be:
-Scarlett, feminine without being too feminine
-Isla, such a gorgeous name that you don’t hear too often
-Athena, very pretty and isn’t overused!
-Amelia, I just love all of the nickname options
-Iris, sounds so pretty and I love the meaning, Rainbow
-Jane, plain Jane
-Birdie, I think it has way too much teasing potential
-River, is getting more and more popular for boys, so I consider it a boys name
-Bridgette, I just hate this spelling, Bridgit is much better!
-Darcy, just not as pretty as your other choices
sorry I was trying to be as nice as possible!
I really love:
Though there are quite a few more I still adore and think are fantastic.
I hope you’re a Doctor Who fan with all those names :)
Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to say to eliminate Jemma, Eliza, Elsa, Livia, Zoey and Mila, keep those, LOVE them!!!
Thank you all for the comments! It’s so nice hearing some outside opinions for once!
Haha yes, I’m a massive Doctor Who fan, glad someone noticed ;)
Thanks again! - Amanda
There are so many more but these are so beautiful and yet not overused. You have such great taste in names!
I had a really hard time picking a bottom three but Felicity, Jane, Evie, Sally and Layla are kind of boring compared to the others. Good luck!
Iris- quite nice, makes me think of the iris of the eye though
River- quite nice, sounds a bit masculine to me though
Clara- classy and pretty
Hazel- lovely, very vintage
Ada- stunning antique name
Elodie- beautiful and French, I love! You may also like Eloise.
Molly- classical name, really pretty
Elsie- adorable but not sure how well it would age.
Lucy- pretty but got a bit boring as used a lot, how about Lucia?
Lillian- lovely, traditional and has nice nickname options.
Daisy- adorable, vintage classic.
Bridgette- hate, sorry.
Sarai- lovely biblical name
Amelia- very beautiful
Athena- wonderful name
Gemma- very cute but ages well too, has a nice vintage feel to it
Celina- okay but not that keen myself.
Eliza- one of my favourite names. Think it has lots of character to it and is really gorgeous.
Aurora- beautiful. I love the girliness of this name but that Rorie is a great unisex nickname. Also like Rora and Aura/Ora as nicknames.
Ingrid- not a fan at all, I think it is ugly. Indigo is similar though and I think Indigo is pretty.
Birdie- very "out-there" and unique. Definitely the first thing I thought of was the singer. I think it is okay but would definitely only use as a middle name.
Darcy- okay but reminds me a lot of Mr Darcy from Jane Austen’s novel ’Pride and Prejudice’.
Genevieve- alright, I like the nicknames for it.
Eleanora- so gorgeous and underused. Much prefer to Eleanor.
Livia- Gorgeous, I also like Olivia and Livia as a nickname.
Esmée- a beautiful French name, love.
Clementine- satsuma, tangerine, orange. You wouldn’t name your children these so why Clementine. It may have been okay back in the day when these fruits were not available and were rare but now it is not fair.
Juliette- think this name is overrated. I prefer the spelling Juliet. It just reminds me of Romeo and Juliet whenever I see this name.
Zoey- lovely, also like spelling without the y, Zoe.
Isla- really pretty
Margo- very cute.
Vivienne- bit too old fashioned for my liking and I prefer the spelling Vivian as it looks much less fussy.
Sally- not keen, bit of a grandma name!
Scarlett- I don’t like this name, sounds harsh to me.
Mila- love this name, again may become popular due to Mila Kunis becoming very successful.
Ivy- Short and sweet, I absolutely love this name. I can see it becoming very popular though as Beyonce named her daughter Blue Ivy.
Leia- adorable and underused, love this name
Layla- beautiful and cute but ages well too
Thea- nice but better as a nickname
Felicity- quite pretty.
Ruby- so stunning, one of my all time favourite names. Very precious name like the gemstone haha.
Ophelia- okay. Not a big fan myself.
Mabel- very cute and vintage bit of an ’old lady name’ but I can see it coming back into fashion with May and Belle being very popular and vintage names on the rise. I really like it personally.
Evie-gorgeous, also like it as a nickname for Eve or Eva.
Flora- so beautiful and vintage. However there is possible teasing as it is the name of the margarine brand so she could get called ’butters’ which in England anyway is slang for ugly/unattractive.
Theodora- alright, nothing special. Thea and Dora are sweet nicknames though.
Melody- so gorgeous, but don’t like the nickname Mel, Elle/El is adorable though. Also rather unique.
Rose- beautiful but very popular
Adelaide- I like this name, classic and underused
Jane- Bit boring, makes me think of ’plain jane’ but is okay as a middle name.
(but loved a lot of the others too)
Good luck! Hope this helps!
Ada - So cute and ages well!
Lyra - stunning and unusual!
Iris - Classic and love the meaning!
Luna - beautiful!
Margo - Very unusual but so pretty! I would love to meet a little Margo!
Jane - Like it better as a mn
Ophelia - just not a fan
Theodora - Thea is way better
Scarlett - a bit harsh
Evie - Cute but a bit boring. There are so many other grat names on you list!
I love your list so much!
Margo is my favorite, Elsa is a close second. But really, almost all of the names on your list are just wonderful!
The few names i didn’t really like are Jane, Ophelia, Birdie and Felicity, they are just not my taste at all but Jane might make a nice mn.
Thanks again for all of the lovely comments! We really, really appreciate all of your opinions. Still having a hard time picking just one name but you guys are really helping us! -Amanda
Love Clara, Hazel, Margo, Ada and Athena!
I’m not very fond of Birde - Just feels a litte bit much, same with Ophelia, Theodora and Clementine. Good luck!
Sorry, had a hard time picking 5 of each but i hope this helps!
