    I looove classic baby names! Of those three, I like Ada the best. I came veeeery close to naming my daughter Adele (we ended up going with Catherine), so I might be a bit biased 😛 I do agree that it is pretty close to super-trendy Ava, though.

    I love Ada Marie, it’s one of my top picks for when I eventually have a little girl (Marie is my mother’s middle name). So I hope it doesn’t get too popular!

    Haha Marie is my middle name, and I love the name most ____ Marie _____ names flow. 

    I voted Frances Marie, I think it’s adorable, and nicknames could be Fran, Frannie, Frankie. My second pick would be Ada Marie, but I see her concern about it possibly seeming or becoming more common than she’d like.

    I love them all, but voted for Hazel. Frances would be my #2.

    I voted for Ada as I really like that name. Also, who cares if a name is trendy? I am Amy, and its very common for my age group but that didn’t really affect my life at all. I went by Amy Jo sometimes to differentiate myself.

    Frances I don’t really care for, but Frankie as a nickname would be awesome.

    Hazel I like a lot as well.

    My FI and I have already talked about Ava or some variation for a girl, when we decide to have kids. We don’t care that its popular, it might be years before that happens anyway so it’ll be out of trend by then i’m sure.

    I like Hazel the best. I would HATE it if my name was Frances.

    princesslettuce14:  I think Frances is the most old-fashioned and least trendy of the three. Both Hazel and Ada are making a comeback, so I voted for Frances.

    I like Frances and Hazel. I think that Ada is way too trendy if she is looking for classic names. I named my second daughter Luella Marie, and we call her Lulu a lot. I liked Luella because it is bubbly on the tounge, you read it and know how to say it, old-fashioned, not popular at all, pretty, and three syllables ending in a short “a” sound. Crazy, but the syllables and short “a” sound were my rules. My other daughter is Mariah. A little more trendy, but not very popular.

    I honestly like them all. 

    If I ever have another daughter she will be called Betty Marie.
