Hi everyone, I would love to get your opinion on our top 5 girls names for little one due in 6 weeks.      
  • Charlotte
  • Hayley
  • Angela
  • April
  • Charlee or Charley
Middle name is Jean (family name). Last name is Parker. We both love nicknames that come from some of the names, whats a nickname for april? Looking forward to hearing your opinions.

Charlotte- lovely, and the pick of the list but if you nickname her Charlie is would be a bit weird with your surname
Hayley- ok, but a bit dated
Angela- ditto Hayley
April- ditto Hayley
Charlee or Charley- dislike, but I wouldn't use it with the surname Parket

So Charlotte without the nickname Charlie is my pick or if you're going to use Charlie then I'd go with Hayley, Angela or April, none is really better than another of those.

I knew an April, nickname was Rilla. When we played sport the chant would be GoRilla!  Which we thought was pretty cool. She also used to get called May a bit too, in keeping with calling redheads bluey, brunettes blondie etc.

I like Charlotte and Angela. I wouldn't use Charley as a standalone name, and I'm not a huge fan of Hayley or April.

Just saw the edit, not sure how I missed it. I quite like Rachel, but not as much as Charlotte or Angela. I really dislike Matilda and think it's by far the worst on your list.

I like Angela. It goes well with Parker and Jean. It has a nice nickname (Ange).

The other names don't have nice nicknames... unless you want people calling your kid char, hay or ape!!

Second choice (with a big margin) would be Rachel.

I think Charlie or Lottie for Charlotte, and Rilla for April are nice.

I like Rae for Rachel too.

I would not use Charlee by itself at all but I don't mind it as a short form of Charlotte (or Charlene, if anyone is still naming babies Charlene...)

If every third woman in my family wasn't named Rachel I would consider that myself. I don't really want to use it myself because of that, but I like it.

Hayley- Like, but not a favourite
Charlee- Only like Charlee as a nickname for Charlotte and wouldn't use with your surname
