Here is the list of girls names that I am considering. Popularity doesn't concern me, nor do any references to popular culture. Middle name would likely be a family one and I'm not really bothered by how it would "go" with the first name.
Please offer your opinions on my list below. Which is your favourite and why?

Daisy
Eloise
Penelope
Matilda
Celeste
Phoebe
Stella
Chloe
Primrose

Nice list!

Favourite: Celeste by a long long way. It's the only one on your list I would consider but for Stella.

Tie between Eloise and Matilda for least favourite, I really dislike both.

Primrose - 2nd fave

Stella and Eloise are my favs

Stella - Streetcar named Desire
Eloise - Just 'cos! Also maybe due to the naffish song that was about in the 80's.

Also think Chloe is very sweet.

You have great taste!My faves on your list are Celeste, Phoebe and Eloise. They've all been on my shortlists, funnily enough. I knew a Primrose whose name was shortened to Prim which kind of puts me off that name.

Penelope, Stella, Phoebe, Eloise, Celeste

Celeste- would have been my 2nd choice for DD

Penelope is my favourite. I love it, and Penny and Pepper as nicknames.

Celeste and Phoebe would be tied for second. I like the rhythm of Celeste as a middle, too. Penelope Celeste would be pretty perfect to me.

Primrose I feel like I should like, but don't. And Matilda I sort of like but not that much, I mostly just like Tillie and would be looking for another long form.

#15 Gudrun

Favourite would be Primrose because it suggests feminine elegance and charm.
(And I love the NN Posy/Posie.)

Closely followed by Celeste because it suggests effortless and exquisite French class.

I like Daisy too for its whimsy and Phoebe for its mythological roots and I like names with that ending.

Ditto Chloe despite it being 'overused'.


The remaining four are among my very least favourite names.

Posted 09 January 2013 - 06:48 PM

I love Celeste and Chloe
Eloise and Stella are ok

The rest are really nms so I can't comment although I will say I think Primrose is so sicky sweet it sounds pretentious. Sorry!

QUOTE (white~wave @ 09/01/2013, 06:37 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
Penelope - love the nn Penny
Celeste - what Gudrun said

#22 ~Peaches~

Posted 09 January 2013 - 07:57 PM

#23 la di dah

Posted 09 January 2013 - 09:51 PM

I'm odd; I adore Rosemary and Rosamund, but Primrose leaves me cold and I'm not sure why.
