I have a potential boy's name sorted but I'm a bit stuck on girls' names. As the title suggests, I would like a name that's pretty, gentle but spunky. So far I like Lucy, Sophie or Imogen. What do you think of these names? And have you got any other ideas? Thanks!

Yes this a very spunky name!  I was thinking about it for my DD but decided it was a bit too strong.  I am not sure I find Lucy spunky but it is a lovely name.

Lucia is gorgeous.

I have a Lucy and she's all three :-) It is my favourite out of your 3.

Imogen isn't a favourite of mine because there is one in my dds class and all the kids pronounce it Emma-gen.
