What do you think of the name Lushe (silent e) as my baby daughter's name? Plenty of people have the surname Lush so why not have it as a first name? I already have a daughter called Harlowe which caused uproar with the family but has been received well in nursery but I need something just as unusual for my new arrival due in January. This is my first post so please be nice to me...

Lilah is a lovely name smile

Lush does indeed mean a drunkard! Here in Spain Luz (pronounced Looth) is a popular name. It means 'light' and I think it's lovely....

Congrats! A lovely name!

Do you pronounce it Louche? Not good! Sounds bit like douche too.

Hi everyone, just thought I would update u all, our baby girl was born on New Year's Eve, weighing 7lb 1oz and we named her Lilah (pronounced Lie-lah), she is beautiful and I think her name is beautiful too. I'm sure there will be a few of u who do not like it but I just thought I would let u all know that we didn't choose Lushe and never will. Thanks for all your help in the end.

It's a horrendous name! Don't do it! I'm from Northern Ireland and over here we also use the term 'lush' to refer to someone who likes a drink!!

Struggling as I like old fashioned names !!

I think you have to do the prime minister test though- could there be a pm Lushe ( I know Barrack has scuppered this test though!!)

Not keen, personally.

cuillereasoupe Fri 04-Jan-13 19:37:02

It has to be Clarissa, surely?

Baby due this month. I don't think adding to it is that ridiculous.

JustFabulous Thu 03-Jan-13 19:39:24
