Beth (don't like Bethany)
Indi (but if it were indigo I'd rank this first)
Posted 18 December 2012 - 11:41 PM
Lily - Nice
Holly - Not a fan. I don't think this name ages well
Indi (dh doesnt like any longer versions) - Cute, but not for an adult. I don't think this name ages well
Hayley - Very pretty. This would be my pick!
Bethany (Beth) - I like Beth but not a fan of Bethany

I would same the same order as you have put them in already.
Posted 18 December 2012 - 11:44 PM
Lily- Lovely name
Bethany- I quite like it
Indi- I don't mind it
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).

Thanks for the replies
I prefer Beth but want sure if was ok as a name on its own??
Posted 19 December 2012 - 12:04 AM
love them all
indi ( i like indie better, personally.also like indigo)
beth ( reminds me of 'Little Women', which i remember with fondess and affection. she was a Beth in her own right wasn't she? or was it from elizabeth?)

I only like Lily from your list. But much prefer Lillian.
Posted 19 December 2012 - 12:43 AM
Lily and Holly are my favourites.
Beth - I love Elizabeth (Beth in Little Women was an Elizabeth) but not Bethany.
Posted 19 December 2012 - 12:44 AM
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.

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.
Posted 19 December 2012 - 06:19 AM
Beth (although Bethany woild have taken top spot)
(about 1,000 other names)
Posted 19 December 2012 - 06:22 AM
I love Holly and Indi
Posted 19 December 2012 - 06:37 AM
I like Indi but only if shortened from Indigo.
Holly is nice and dislike Beth.
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.
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.
Posted 19 December 2012 - 08:14 AM
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
Posted 19 December 2012 - 08:15 AM
Posted 19 December 2012 - 08:23 AM
Lily - nice
Holly = lovely
Indi - ok
Hayley = nice
Beth (Bethany) - I think Bethany is pretty and later on if she wants she has the option to shorten it
Posted 19 December 2012 - 08:50 AM
Love, love, love Beth. Just love it. Stands alone beautifully but fine as NN to Bethany too.
Posted 19 December 2012 - 09:03 AM
Beth is one of my favourite, all time names. I like it as a diminuitive of Elizabeth.
I also love Lily and Holly.
Posted 19 December 2012 - 09:43 AM
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.
Posted 19 December 2012 - 09:48 AM
I only like Hayley from your list but I like it quite a lot.
Posted 19 December 2012 - 09:58 AM

I really appreciate all the replies
Indi seems to be a love it or hate it name lol im leaning towards beth at the moment but also love lily despite it being popular. I love Indi but I have a few reservations as I dislike the longer versions as dh strongly dislikes them so it would just be Indi on its own. I like the suggestion of Elizabeth its lovely and a famuly name but I have this weird thing about shortened versions startingvwith a different letter like beth and Elizabeth or alana being Lana. Weird but I like to keep the same initials with shorter variants. Think ill talk to dh about beth instead of Bethany it makes me love it more being just Beth but could still use Bethany if dh preferred amd call her beth
Would love any more opinions
