Ah. Right. Unfortunate. Thanks.

I must get out more.

flange is slang for vagina

Sounds like the (K)no(wle)s have it.

Funnily enough, I met a Solenne today- that's nice, but I'm sticking with my current choice.

I hardly want to ask this, but what's a flange? <thick>

I do sometimes think to myself 'Mr and Mrs Knowles produced two talented and beautiful daughters, isn't it a shame that they had such terrible taste in names'.

Seriously. Beyoncé, Solange. Bad, baaaaad names.

No. Flange was my first thought. If it occurs to me, it will occur to every 13yr old boy she meets.

Sounds like 'flange'. It's a no from me.

I prefer Solène

Beyoncé's sister. That's all I can think of too!

Just, no. Sorry.

I think it looks like a group of letters that have been bundled together, really.

You really need to say it with a French accent imho.

It's a nice name but my very first thought is Solange Knowles!

jkklpu Wed 10-Oct-12 09:38:14

I prefer Solenne and Segolene

Does it rhyme with orange?

First thought was solange Knowles.

Still nice name though.

I think it's a lovely name, but the one I knew from school days hated standing out (an being nn'ed Sausage)

I've bothered this board endlessly, and I think that (for now) I've settled on my name.

But last night (3am-hormone-induced-madness strikes again) I thought: what about Solange?

Is it a nice name, or not?

(And this is inspired by what I think of as classic French, rather than Ms Knowles- while she is, I think, rather fab, I'm not up for naming my DD in her honour particularly. There would be a lot of leggy hot pant wearing to live up to, after all grin)
