thoughts please ladies (with no expletives, if at all possible ladies)

There is a little girl at my son's nursery called this and I cringe every time I hear her name called. For me anyway, this is an old ladies name and not ready for a comeback yet. Maybe it doesn't help that I've always hated Oliver and find the character of Nancy in that kind of annoying! I much prefer Clemency, which is a bit similar?

Love it! It's my dd's middle name only because dh wouldn't let me use it for her first name. The only comments we get on it are positive.

I love it, it was on my list for DC3, until DH pulled a face at it because he's a miserable git who doesn't like anything I suggest

It is a nickname for Anne or Agnes, so I wouldn't use it as a first name, but I like it as a nickname.

I love Nancy! If you're not sure though use it as a mn.

I like it but it was vetoed by DH along with Hazel.

I think it's lovely and if you're really lucky you could get your dh to get you a Smythson's Nancy bag too!

My mother was known as Nancy, her real name was Annie.She only discovered that her name was Annie when she was being confirmed and had to produce her baptism certificate.
I think Nancy is due a come back.My dad always disliked the name Nancy and called her Anne.He would call her Annie when he wanted to annoy her.

It's my name too, I disliked it when I was young because it was unusual, I wanted to be called Emma like the other girls in my class!

My mum's name (and my grandma's)

Really like it but aren't naming after any parents!

It's my DD's name, I love it - we still haven't ever met a Nancy younger than her (she's 15).

She's the only one in her school so it's unusual but not unknown (so people know how to pronounce it and spell it).

I think it's a character name - I like it.

gnocci Wed 14-Nov-12 15:14:49

I have one <6m old :-)

My DH chose this for our DD2 age 2, in honour of his mother and grandmother who have Anne in their names but mainly because he loves it. He is no Cameron fan!

I canvassed it on here and it mostly got a thumbs up. In RL it seems to be quite neutral- no one raves about it or winces either. My older DD thinks it is cool. There is a 20something mum at the school with this name who loves having a little namesake.

I think it is a name that will grow well with her smile . She is certainly a wee character.

This was our lo's name until it appeared she was going to be a boy! Still love it as did everyone we came across (except my family... haha)

Don't everyone be using it now tho! haha xx
