    Thanks girls :)

    Dottie would be short for Dorothy & Effy short for Elizabeth. If that makes a difference lol

    I love Darcie but it would be my 3rd choice of the 3 names. Xx

    I love Dorothy, it was one of my choices if bump had been pink!

    Effy is cute but not a fan of the name Elizabeth.

    Darcie/Darcy is my least favorite.

    Let us know what you decide!

    I would go with Dottie personally! I'm from the us and the name Effy wouldn't fly here.."eff" is a shortened term for the "f bomb" ..maybe that's something to think about..she could be a high profile international Business women someday :)

    I've Always liked the name Dottie!

    Edited: I love Elizabeth! Effy is a cute nickname for it! I may be partial as Elizabeth is my middle name :) I'm personally not a fan of Darcie but I do think it fits in best with your boys names!

    Effy seems like an odd nn for Elizabeth? I know Lisa, Liz, Libby
    I also read Effy, like F you--that phrase? I'm in the US though so it might be totally different. I'm not trying to offend--just emphasizing that Darcy is probably the better choice. I also think it goes better with your boy names, which are too cute!!!

    Thanks girls,

    Effy is a name we heard from a tv program 'Skins'. Im assuming its short for Elizabeth? Im not actually a fan of Elizabeth either, but she would need a full name as I can already imagine people saying 'Oh what's Effy short for?' That's what's putting me off this name slightly, but this is OHs favorite.

    I love Darcie/Darcy, but OH thinks its a boys name and his only heard of boys called it :/
    I never have but im not sure if its a unisex name?

    Dorothy/Dottie is my absolute favourite. But everyone I know hates it, including OH and really try to put me off it :(

    I've waited so long to name my own little girl, never ever thought it would be so difficult lol.

    Darcy is becoming more and more common if that bothers you

    I adore Dottie it is perfect! And I love your boys names but think I've told you that before <3
