From your list I love:

Juliet (with this spelling)

Lucy

Some OK names on your list but Mietta sounds like a cat's name and Monique is a bit phone sexish for me. If I had to pick one it would be Hayley, closely followed by Bianca.

Wow I like a lot of those names!

I love Mia too and I wouldn't worry about its popularity. It's a 'transcender' for me and maybe it's already peaked anyway.

Also very fond of Mietta, Helena and Lucy.  Also Juliet if spelt thus. Also like Michaela (but worry about all the spellings about which kinda detract from it), Katerina and Monique.


You could get 2 for one if you went Mietta, known as Mia.  I would shortlist to Mia, Mietta and Helena.

DH likes French names and spellings (hence Julliette spelling). I'm not that excited by all the "ique" names, but Monique is the only one I'd consider.

I like Juliette but really don't like Julie, Jules etc for nick names

#6 Jjbeanz

Posted 11 January 2013 - 10:53 PM

I only really love 2 of those names... Lucy & Juliette original.gif

#7 Gudrun

Posted 11 January 2013 - 10:55 PM

If he's into French names what about Miette?

#8 Guest_Sunnycat_*

Posted 11 January 2013 - 10:56 PM

Michaela, Bianca and Helena would be my top picks.

#9 Tarantara

Posted 11 January 2013 - 10:56 PM

I like Helena best. FWIW I would prefer Juliet with that spelling too.

#10 Elemenopee

Posted 11 January 2013 - 10:56 PM

I really like Mietta, I think Gudrun's suggestion of Mietta nn Mia is great. Also like Juliette, either spelling.

#11 Kaylaballerina

Posted 11 January 2013 - 10:56 PM

Yes the Michaela variants are a pain and put me off - otherwise it would be my fave - have always loved it..


almost called DD 1 Mietta but got scared off my its unusualness/potential spelling and pronunication difficulties

My sister's DD is Maya - DH thinks would be strange having a Mia and a Maya

#12 Elemenopee

Posted 11 January 2013 - 11:00 PM

I wouldn't use Mia if I had a niece Maya. Sorry OP.

#13 Kaylaballerina

Posted 11 January 2013 - 11:01 PM

thanks everyone - will call it a night - and sleep on it!

#14 Gudrun

Posted 11 January 2013 - 11:01 PM

Juliet/te seems to be one that commonly gets used in full but the NN Jet has some appeal I think.

ETA I wouldn't care about a cousin being Maya for a Mia. FWIW my niece is Michaela and her sister is Lara just in case you like that.

Great list!
Bianca, nice
Hayley, okay
Mia, okay
Juliette, pretty
Michaela, okay
Mietta, lovely - very pretty.  Nn Mia wouldn't do it justice IMO
Lucy, okay if not over done
Monique, nms but Monica as nice.
Helena, love this and is diminutive Eleni.
Katerina, okay


How about Bridget or Mattise?



#17 la di dah

Posted 11 January 2013 - 11:47 PM

Bianca - Like
Hayley - Dislike
Mia (I know its too popular but...) - Irrespective of its popularity (I like Lily for heaven's sake) I hate it.
Juliette - I really like Juliet.
Michaela - I love this, as long as you promise to spell it this way.
Mietta - Interesting, not familiar with it, but not unpleasant.
Lucy - I find it a bit "it's fine" but you know what? It's fine.
Monique - I like Veronique or Angelique more.
Helena - Love.
Katerina - Love.

If its popularity spoiling Michaela for you, Michal (mee-hal) is a legit Biblical girl's name, and Kayla is legit independently of Michaela, as well as pretty phonetic. Mikayla frosts me, personally, though I like Kayla and Michaela seperately.

I like Lucy and Juliet the best too.

I also love Helena, but my tongue always stumbles on which way to pronounce it.

#19 fifi-trixibelle

Posted 12 January 2013 - 06:43 AM

Bianca- nice
Hayley- ok, but a bit dated
Mia- lovely
Juliette- gorgeous, and I much, much prefer this spelling
Michaela- lovely
Mietta- ok
Lucy- nice, but I much, much prefer it as a nickname only to Lucia, Lucille, Lucinda etc
Monique- nice
Helena- lovely
Katerina- nice


Juliette, with this spelling, is definitely my favourite.

#20 Ingrid the Swan

Posted 12 January 2013 - 06:52 AM

I love Bianca, Juliette, Helena and Katerina.

Michaela is nice enouugh un this spelling but for me it would get a bit lost amongst the Mikaylas and McKaylas, which I really dislike.
