Harriet 8/10 feels quintessentially British for some reason. I think of cricket games and pimms lol… ( which is a drink)
[name_f]Rosa[/name_f] 7/10 think it’s pretty and usable and we’ll received in most European countries.
[name_f]Muriel[/name_f] 4/10 reminds me of [name_f]Muriel[/name_f]’s wedding, anyone seen that?
[name_f]Eunice[/name_f] 2/10 too old fashioned for me.
[name_f]Jeanette[/name_f] 2/10 I put it in the same category as [name_f]Karen[/name_f]. It has that sort of middle aged woman vibe about it.
[name_f]Blanche[/name_f] 7/10 I think it’s quite pretty but only as a middle name spot.
[name_f]Carrie[/name_f] 1/10 erm [name_m]Stephen[/name_m] [name_m]King[/name_m]’s [name_f]Carrie[/name_f] :flushed:
[name_f]Emily[/name_f] 6/10 it’s nice but it’s not wow.
[name_f]Beulah[/name_f] 1/10 never even heard of this name.
[name_u]Billie[/name_u] 5/10 mixed feelings about this one. I actually prefer is as nickname for a boy from [name_m]William[/name_m].

Harriet - LOVE [name_f]Harriet[/name_f]. It’s one of our top girl names. I feel like it works for any age and is very pretty. Started loving it after hearing it on [name_u]Grey[/name_u]’s Anatomy :rofl:

Rosa - not a fan. [name_m]Just[/name_m] not my style.

Muriel - Also not my style. I just picture an old grandma sitting in an old chair crocheting.

Eunice - Again, not my style. Same image as above.

Jeanette - I’m a big fan of names with -ette. I don’t love [name_u]Jean[/name_u] though. So this one is just so so for me.

Blanche - Eh, not a fan of this one either.

Carrie - I’m surprised this was in the 1920s! Not a fan of it but better than some of the other ones.

Emily - pretty name, but it’s overused now.

Beulah - I started singing [name_u]Baby[/name_u] Beluga in my head after reading this. So that’s a no from me.

Billie - not a fan of this one.
