which do you prefer?

We are trying to decide between a few names:

Elizabeth Blakely (Blakely is a family name)

Madeline Alexis or Madeline Grace

Eva Elizabeth

And Matilda is on the table but we can't seem to choose a middle name that flows with it, but I really like it.

Re: which do you prefer?

  • I adore Matilda.  It doesn't go at all with my last name but it would be at the top of my list otherwise.  I love Tillie as a nickname too.

    I like Eva alot.  Madeline is a bit popular for my liking.  Can't go wrong with Elizabeth- a beautiful, classic, feminine name.

  • Matilda Elizabeth
  • Loading the player...
  • I love Elizabeth, but with Grace. Matilda is cute too, but I like Elizabeth a lot more.
  • I love elizabeth blakely.  Elizabeth is beautiful and classic and it's paired with a unique middle name that has family significance.  The perfect combo IMO.  the other names are too trendy/kind of blah. 
  • I LOVE Matilda, but can't get dh on board with it. :(  What about         Matilda Jane, Matilda Claire, or Matilda Elyse? I also think Grace would go well with it!

    I also think Eva Elizabeth and Madeline Grace are beautiful names!

  • Elizabeth Blakely (Blakely is a family name) Yes

    Madeline Alexis Yes  or Madeline Grace No

    Eva Elizabeth No

    And Matilda is on the table Yes

    What's wrong with Matilda Blakely? I love it! And like a PP, I think the nn Tillie is great. I have an aunt Tillie!

    ETA: Matilda Grace is lovely as well. Maybe prettier than Matilda Blakely, but I like that Blakely is a family name. (Plus I teach a girl named Blakely, and she is awesome lol!)

  • I do not like Matilda.

    I love Elizabeth Blakely - I'm a big "elizabeth" fan and like the family name added.

    I also love Eva Elizabeth.

    I can take or leave Madeline.

  • Ohh Matilda!  I like it because no one else has it.  Maybe use a middle name of yours? Mom's? MIL's?

    I love Eva Elizabeth, or you could use Eva Blakely. I like Blakely anyway but I'd try to use it since it's a family name. Or Eva Madeline.

    Elizabeth as a first name is a bit boring for me. Madeline is way too popular and I'm not a fan of Matilda in the least.

  • Elizabeth Blakely

  • I like Elizabeth Blakely the best.  Eva and Madeline are pretty too.  Madeline is just too popular right now for me.
  • I love Elizabeth

    I agree with all of this except Madeline Alexis.  I have to give that a No.

  • All very nice names.  I like Eva the most.

    Love Madeline, but not with the mn Alexis.

    Elizabeth Blakely sounds great too.  Love the combo.

    Not a fan at all of the name Matilda. 

  • Elizabeth Blakely sounds nice together
  • Of your list, I prefer Elizabeth Blakely. Matilda is NMS but I think Matilda Blakely sounds great. And if you go with Madeline, please do not use Grace. So overdone.

  • I think that Madeline is a little too popular right now.  I know three babies named Madeline.

    I love Elizabeth Blakely.  Very classic.

    I really like Matilda too.  And thumbs up on Tillie.  So cute.

  • 1. Eva Elizabeth
    2. Elizabeth Blakely

  • I like Madeline Grace and Eva Elizabeth. Matilda is okay too. I've always been undecided on that name. It is cute, but I just don't think I would ever actually use it, if that makes sense.

  • I really like Elizabath Blakely. I think Madeline and Eva are too over-used.

    My DD is Matilda and though I am no longer encouraging people to use it because I have concerns about it becoming too popular (too popular to me is in the top 300 which it is currently nowhere near) I will give you my MN ideas anyways. My DD is Matilda Johanna, but that is because Johanna is a family name. If I could chose any middle name, I would have gone with Matilda Jane or Matilda Louise.
