In order:
Lily- Lovely name
Bethany- I quite like it
Indi- I don't mind it

Holly

Hayley- I think I knew too many Hollys and Hayleys who were born in the 80s, so these feel a bit dated to me (Hayley in particular).

I like Bethany but think that Beth on its own is perfectly fine.
So my order would be Bethany, lily, hayley, holly, indi. Individual is a nn only for me.

#11 Bel Rowley

Holly
Beth
Lily
Hayley
Indi

Even though it's a nickname I think Beth is lovely, I'd prefer Elizabeth, but I actually prefer Beth to Bethany. Not sure why I don't like Bethany, but I never have.

Dislike Hayley.

I like Indi but only if shortened from Indigo.

Holly is nice and dislike Beth.

#15 leisamd

Posted 19 December 2012 - 06:49 AM

My favourites are Beth and Holly.  I do like Bethany (well, any version of Beth really!) but Beth is fine on it's own.

The others aren't bad but NMS.

#16 4kidlets

Posted 19 December 2012 - 07:44 AM

I really like Bethany but  I think Beth is fine as a stand alone name too.


Lily, Holly, Hayley - I like all of these


Not so keen on Indi.

Lily - like
Holly - like
Indi (dh doesnt like any longer versions) - love
Hayley - NMS
Beth (Bethany) - like

Also with the name Beth do you think its enough on its own or should have a longer version like Bethany?? I think if you will just call her Beth and never Bethany then just name her that

Indi would be my pick

#22 tres-chic

Beth is one of my favourite, all time names. I like it as a diminuitive of Elizabeth.

I also love Lily and Holly.

#23 JuniPooks_

Posted 19 December 2012 - 09:43 AM

Beth
Indi
Holly
Lily
Hayley

Like others I prefer Indi as a NN for a longer name- I like Indigo, Indira and India. But it is still a gorgeous name. I do think you would get constant questions about what it is short for.

#24 B.3

Posted 19 December 2012 - 09:48 AM

I only like Hayley from your list but I like it quite a lot.

#25 two+three
