Opinions on these names

I'm not pregnant but the possibility of future children is there now. I was thinking of naming a girl a name something that someone close to me suggested to honor them. I can't go in to the reason why. I was wondering what people thought of the names. I do like them.

Gretel Michelle or Greta Michelle

I prefer Greta - Gretel just makes me think Hansel & Gretel. Greta is an older-sounding name, though, and might be awkward on a baby.

Re: Opinions on these names

I like the name Greta. I don't think it would be strange for a baby at all. I think it sounds great for any age

Re: Opinions on these names

Another vote for Greta. I think it is really pretty!! I also think the Gretel Michelle is a lot of l's Greta Michelle is sweet and strong at the same time!

Re: Opinions on these names

Another vote for Greta. It's pretty and unique. I agree with PP that it's too many Ls, I think if you went with Gretel it would need a different middle name like "Gretel Marie" or something like that. They are both lovely names, though!
