Is 'your' baby name popular? What does it mean? And what does Mumsnet's (not-so-serious) Baby name finder predict?
Due with DD2 in a month. DD1 is Tabitha. We both love Ada but I have slight reservations because its so short - not sure why that's making me think twice. Middle name possibly Grace or Poppy...
I'm in two mindsIt's not a pretty name but it is unusual nowI'm reminded of either an old granny or Ian Dury's song "Fucking Ada"
Ada is lovely and I agree Ada Lovelace is a great heroine!
Squalorvictoria - hence your nickname! I'm trying to get over my National obsession, not doing very well so far! If I ever have another child and its a girl I would like to call her Ada for the same reason.
I would pronounce it Ay-Da.It's on my name list now!
I love it. But then I love old lady names. My DD is a Tabitha
I really like it, I much prefer it to Ava. I think its simple but beautiful. You could always go with Adeline if you wanted a longer full name. Tabitha & Adeline?http://www.cso.ie/en/media/csoie/releasespublications/documents/birthsdm/2011/babiesnames_2011.pdf
Ada is okay. It doesn't evoke particularly strong feelings either way with me.I have also met a Turkish Ada who pronounced it Adder. For a long time I thought it was a different name! I prefer the Ae-der pronounciation personally.
