Miranda.

Soft, romantic, Shakespearean... and also not Greta, which is never really my style.

I like them both. They have different personalities to me... They are the kind of names you could keep until you meet your baby and then pick whichever one seems to suit. Greta is a strong name, which is fabulous for a girl!

Middle names for Greta:

Greta Catherine
Greta Carmen
Greta Carys
Greta Florence
Greta Frances
Greta Hazel
Greta Jane
Greta Liesl
Greta Lilian
Greta Mae
Greta Margo
Greta Marlo
Greta Marion
Greta Saffron
Greta Scarlett
Greta Soren
Greta Violet
Greta Vivienne
Greta Willow

Greta - I like it because it sounds less usual.

I like Miranda - I just think Sex in the City when I hear it - not sure why - I've never seen it and have no idea if someone called Miranda is on it.
I have a lovely friend called Miranda though and she is nicknamed Ran or Rans mostly.

Greta doesn't really appeal to me, but I really like Gretel. Probably more than Miranda, actually.

Greta. It's absolutely lovely. It would be so adorable and wear well on an adult and older woman as well.

Greta wub.gif  It's a beautiful name that will wear well at any age.

Prefer Miranda.

Posted 11 November 2012 - 01:04 AM

What can I say?  Greta because I've always loved it and never tire of it.

Miranda is OK but would not rank in my favourite tri-syllabics. Not flourishy enough. And maybe because of the twangy mid vowel in English?

Greta middles (so much seems to go):

Greta Mireia
Greta Millicent
Greta Caroline

#24 TurtleTamer

Greta.  Miranda is dated to me.

They're both lovely OP.

I marginally prefer Greta. DS1 has a Greta in his Kindy class and she's lovely.

(I unfortunately tend to associate Miranda with the Sydney suburb but it's a gorgeous name).
