    We are having a little girl, and finding a name is so difficult because I like more unusual names but my partner loves traditional boring names (pah, you can tell my opinion on that). Anyhow, we have come up with a few options so I need some opinions....

    Daphne
    Imogen
    Isla

    Our favourite is Daphne, but my mum practically cried when we told her :/

    I love all of them! so cute. My only input (Which may not matter to you) is that Isla is and has been very popular the last few years xxx

    If Paphne is your favourite I think you should go with it despite what anyone thinks - even your mum! If people don't like it, they'll just have to learn to get used to it! :D

    Just go with the name you like the best. You'll find anyone who wasn't sure about the name will get used to it. My mum wasn't keen on the name Eleanor, but I named my daughter that anyway, and it's different now that she's here and growing up and mum has actually said how pretty the name is.

    People associate names with people they know, or know of. Once your baby has the name your mum will associate it with your new baby, all will be fine.

    If you want Daphne go for it regardless of what anyone else thinks, including your mom. It is your choice after all and your mom will be fine with it once lo is here. I'm not sure my mom is overkeen on the name I have chosen and I know my dad definitely isn't but it's tough, me and OH love it and it's what we've been calling her now for the past 3 or 4 months so we're sticking with it :)

    Love the name Imogen and it was on my list but OH didn't like and Isla I love also :) xx

    I love the name Daphne. I do love the name Imogen, but where I come from (Belfast) it sounds like people are saying Imaging so it puts me off it.
