What do you think of the name Imogen?


Pronounced im-o-jen. Alternatively spelled Emogen. Immy/Emmy for short. My hubs and I love this name for a daughter, but I worry that it's too obscure and our daughter would grow up loathing it.

I really like uncommon names, but I don't really want a name that's so uncommon everyone raises a brow when they hear it, or that my daughter would have to prepare for weird comments anytime she introduces herself. What do you think?

I love Imogen. I don't think it's too obscure, it's a pretty well-established name just not super common. I also love the Shakespeare connection.

I love Imogen! I don't think it's an uncommon name in that sense, I think most people have heard the name before so they wouldn't raise an eyebrow at it.

I love it, it's become very popular here over the last couple of years. Was originally my top choice but my best friend beat me to it! (she didn't know)

It's very pretty . I'm in the UK and know Imogen's from a range of different generations, but it seems to have had a popularity surge in recent years as there are a few at school/playgroup.

It's not to my personal taste but it's not an obscure name where I'm from if you like it then you should defo go for it!

Was my top pick but DH said no because it's too common! I think it's about 50 in the top 100, not at all obscure, think most people would know it. It's from Shakespeare so it's been around a while. Still a bit sad I'm not getting to use it! X
