Only 10 days til my due date & we're still undecided between these three:

Amelia

Charlotte

Keira

I love all 3 yet have hesitations on all 3! I feel Amelia is becoming too popular & is too close to Emily which I dislike; I fear Charlotte is going to get the unfortunate nn of Charlie, and Keira is also one that is becoming popular (there's 3 in my church!) Yes, I WAY overthink names!!!!!!! But I of course just want it to be perfect for my little princess! Thoughts & votes please! Or if you have any last minute suggestions that go with my style, TIA!!!!!!!!!

Well - my name is Charlotte so I'd have to go with that I was called Charlie at school when I was 11 or 12, but that was the only time. At high school I was "shortlette", because I was short. To be honest, I didn't mind being called Charlie, but feared Lotty (fortunately it ever happened!)

My fave has to be Amelia. Then Charlotte. Then Keira. But they are all great names! I've never heard of anyone named Charlotte with the NN Charlie before but I also haven't known any Charlottes either!! Whatever you choose, it will end up being perfect because it will be your girls name. Wait until you see her to decide which one hits you!

I think Alayna and Amelia would be really cute together! Or maybe just wait until you see her and then you can decide! = )

I like Amelia best, then Charlotte. The only Charlotte I knew was nicknamed Char. And probably if you called her just Charlotte, most people would do the same.

Amelia is a gorgeous name and I don't think its too close to Emily at all! Of your list Amelia is the best! (Just my opinion, of course!)
Congratulations!

My favorite is Charlotte, but I also like Amelia. I know a couple of Charlottes, and have only ever called them Charlotte, or if in a hurry, Char. I think it's a beautiful, sophisticated name. However, Amelia is too

Out of the three I think Charlotte is the best. Its a beautiful name, great for a little princess. I think as long as you stress from the beginning that its CHARLOTTE...not Charlie...people will get it. And when she's older, maybe she'll LIKE Charlie as a nickname. But until then, just correct people if they say it otherwise.

Congrats on the new baby, I hope your labor and delivery goes smoothly!

I love Charlotte! and I wouldn't worry about Charlie...I have a friend called Charlotte and though I have called her Charlie a few times it just didn't feel right so I call her either Charlotte or Chaz. If you call her Charlotte people will follow your lead after a little bit.
