Another Poll - Girl Names

edited September 2014 in Baby Names
Please tell me if it's bad form to post so many polls! I've done a few in the last few months.

My H FINALLY stopped vetoing everything in sight and added in some names! :)

We're loving Cara, I think, but would love to know your thoughts in general. I posted about Noelle earlier, but that has been vetoed. Please vote & give me your thoughts!

LATE EDIT - we are pronouncing Cara - CARE-ah if it matters.

    I love Anna. Emily is pretty too, but too popular at this point (three friends have LOs named Emily). I like Cara. Not a fan of Claire. Bryn is interesting but I prefer multiple syllables.

    Emily and Cara are fine, just NMS.

    Bryn is not a girl name. It is a masculine Welsh name. I picture an old Welsh man drinking tea and playing chess along the coast in Mumbles. It is like naming a girl George.
    Exactly what @mjreilly2 said, except I always use Paul not George as the example of why Bryn should never ever ever ever ever ever be used for a girl.
    Oh and I like Claire spelt like Clare

    I like Cara or Anna...Noelle would work well as a middle name too, I really like Cara Noelle

    I like Cara, but I think if you want it pronounced that way (Care-ah), she's going to be correcting people her whole life.

    LOVE Claire. Anna would be my second pick, Cara a distant third.

    I disagree. Around here, it's pronounced Care-ah. Must be a location thing?

    Um, yea, it's my name. I dislike car-ah, I think it sounds pretentious. She will have to correct people but it's a pretty simple thing to do.

    Op here. Earlier today I made a poll on my bmb (Feb 15) to see what the majority was there on the pronunciation. It currently is 73% pronouncing cara like care-ah, rhyming with Sarah with ~136 votes total. According to what I've read, both are correct pronunciations.

    Eta not that my little poll is very scientific :)

    It must be an American thing, it is always Car-ah here, it isn't even a consideration or thought. That is just how it is said

    You mean some people pronounce Cara car-ah? @pipeTsquared‌ you must live in a different part of America than the five+ different parts that I've lived in. Or more likely I'm just clueless.

    And I had to be evil and vote for Bryn. Now I kinda regret it since people say it's as masculine as George or Paul. It's just that I'd never heard the name before coming to TB, and to my eyes and ears it looks/sounds very lovely and feminine. Well maybe just cute and girly.

    As I said in another reply, I'm in the UK, it is always Car-ah here, it isn't even a debate and not even a postscript, that is just how you say it. 
    And trust me, Bryn is the opposite to cute and girly
