Re: Pick your fav. girl name (we need help!)

I chose Simone. It is a pretty little girls name but transitions to a sophisticated name for a woman when she grows up whereas the other names don't seem to do that IMO.

Re: Pick your fav. girl name (we need help!)

simone- is my choice
olive, I think would be made fun of ALOT
bijou, as pretty as it sounds, I think it would be misprounced all the time (unless you live in france)
tallula, not to pretty sounding

I voted for Simone, because even though those other names are beautiful to us, kids can be really mean. Olive will get made fun of. I think Simone is the best name for her to grow into and appreciate as an adult. Maybe you will just need to see her face to know what she needs to be named =)

Besides, Olive.. I couldn't tell you how I'd pronouce the other two names! I've never heard of either of them... but we tend to choose names that are "familiar" because our last name is always mispronounced.

I liked both Olive and Simone but I voted for Simone. I just like the feel of the name, KWIM?

I named my daughter Olive. She was born 10/10/2007. She is so cute and her name fits her personality.

I chose Olive which I think is a great name. My second choice would be Simone, both names go well with your dd's name. HTH!
