Alright, now what?

Tallulah Poppy Frances is clearly the winner for me, but now where do I add her? What should I take away to add her?

Help me out, in decending order, the girls:

Maud India Scarlett – Maudie
Ottilie Alice Mehitabel – Tillie
Clementine India Maud – Cleo
Winifred Elinor Plum – Winnie
Lucretia Ruby Iris – Lucy
Zelda Coralie Blithe – Zella
Pomeline Frances Elinor – Millie

Where does Tallulah – Lulu, fit in? I’m clearly not gong to write off any of the top 3, but Winifred to Pomeline, which one should I knock off to add Tallulah? Or should I not bother at all? I’m curious as to what you’d do in my shoes. Tell me!

    Tallulah Poppy Frances is adorable.

    I’m not a big fan of Lucretia or Zelda, but I truly do like the combinations you have with them. There are no better names to pair with Lucretia than Ruby and Iris, I think. Tough decision!

    I love Winifred Elinor Plum and Pomeline Frances Elinor, though, so I’d say, if you’re going to replace a name with TPF, go for Lucretia or Zelda.

    I definitely think TPF deserves to be up there.

    Hmmm, It’d have to be Zelda, as she’s got the same feel as Tallulah to me. Zelda/Tallulah, Tallulah/Zelda? Will definitely think about that! Thanks for the vote, Caitlin B!

    I’d swap out Tallulah for Lucretia. (Or at least put Tallulah ahead of Lucretia, except would that eliminate dear Pomeline!?)

    Anyhow, I think the names lead to similar nicknames – Lulu/Lucy – but since I like Lulu far better, I’d drop the Lucretia option.

    Though of course you could call Lucretia Lulu … AGH! This must be making you crazy. 🙂

    It is! It seems to be coming down to replacing Lucretia or Zelda with Tallulah, if I had to choose right now, it’s be Lucretia, Zelda’s been a love for 39 years, Lucretia’s only been floating around in my head for 30. You think I could call Talulah Lucy once in a while? I mean, I’d be happy with Lulu, but Lucy’s darling and really should have been my name, so I’m more than passingly fond of it.

    I like them all, but I think Tallulah should replace Lucretia, I prefer Lucretia over Zelda, and I prefer Lucretia’s combo over Zelda’s combo, but I think Tallulah with the occasional nickname Lucy/Lulu is a bit more superior than Lucretia (Lucy/Lulu). Actually I might think like to replace Winifred with Tallulah. gah, not much help huh?

    Nah, not Winifred! She’s family. It’s definitely Lucretia going, Tallulah could be Lulu/Lucy just like Lucretia and is a bit more family oriented to boot. And I’ve loved Zelda too long to push her off the list. I think if I did, she’d just show up again. 🙂 Zelda stays, Lucretia goes!
