Hello, we are ttc at the moment, and I am having some fun, thinking up baby names . We have had 3 girls names picked out, for a long time, and I can't see us budging on them. The names are Annika, Imogen and Miranda.......Dp's favourite is Annika, but I love them all equally, and can't really see any negative associations, apart from Picnic at hanging rock, and Miranda soft drink, which don't really bother me. So, what order would you rate these names?.....last name is Lee, if that helps. Thank you

I like them in this order, Imogen, Miranda and Annika. I've never warmed to Annika.

I know a newborn Miranda and I love the name, my favourite of the three.

Annika, then Miranda. I don't really like Imogen but it's not bad.

Imogen & Annika are nice names but I'm not specially drawn to them.
I think they all go nicely with your surname

Love Miranda. The Hanging Rock reference is a nice one, in my opinion. She was such an ethereal beauty.
I also love Imogen. It has the same romantic feel.
Personally I'm not keen on Annika. In my mind it conjures up a tennis player, and I'm a bit anti-sport

None of them excite me but they are all nice enough.
I like them in this order: Miranda, Imogen, Annika

I can't fault Miranda. Imogen is a great name but a teensy bit too popular for me. Annika's appropriation into Anglophonia has done it a disservice in my view.

Imogen, Annika and then Miranda.... I think Miranda is quite dated.

I think they're all gorgeous. Imogen would be my favourite followed very closely by Annika with Miranda last.
I think I like the sound of Annika Lee best though.

I used to look after an Annika and she was a gorgeous little girl so I really like it
My equally gorgeous cousin is Imogen so that's another name I love
Miranda doesn't do anything for me.

I love the name Imogen.
I'm not a fan of Miranda. It seems a bit dated to the eighties to me too, or maybe it's just a coincidence that I've met a few born in the eighties. And I really dislike the supermodel with that name. (There you go. I just looked on 111 years of baby names NSW and it isn't dated to the eighties in particular. It's been steadily climbing in popularity since the sixties). Maybe I was mixing it up with Melinda?
I used to have the name Annika on my list, but I figured out that many people in Australia seem to pronounce it slightly differently from one another. I guess that's not necessarily more than a slight annoyance, though.

Imogen - not a fan, and don't think it sounds as good with your surname as the other two.
Posted 18 February 2013 - 12:00 PM
Annika - Love!
Imogen - its ok.
Miranda - LOVE!
to rank I would go;

All great names, but Miranda is one of my faves.

Beautiful! Take your pick! Today I think I like Imogen most, but day to day this would change.
