My childhood best friend's dog was called Bonnie.

Not to my taste.
I generally don't like names like
MollIE
RosIE
HollIE
LottIE

All ie or y endings.

The two exceptions to that rule are hattie and Harry. Two names with that sounds I love.

I don't like it at all.
I know one child called Bonnie and every gives a little snigger when they hear her name.

I know two and they I both 33. Suits them just fine. It is lovely! Just go for it if you like it.

I do like it, but think it sounds like it should be a nickname rather than a name itself. I'm not sure what for though!

Met a Bonnie at a wedding recently, she is in her early twenties. I like the name smile

Ds2 was going to be Bonnie. I love it.

Wasn't Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler's daughter in Gone with the Wind called Bonnie?

My very beautiful 22 year old niece is called Bonnie! I personally don't like it but it suits her if that makes sense?!

She's very slim, pretty and blonde and it just suits her perfectly!

Also know a 20 something named Bonnie and a older woman named Bonnie.

It's a nice name, not one I would choose myself though

We're expecting dc2 and batting names around. DH would like a Scottish name and came up with Bonnie. I like it but DH loves ithmm

It's really nice. It reminds me of the cute kid from toy story 3.

I think I read another post on here a short while ago in which a poster said her DD was named Bonnie Christina. Ever since, I've thought what a beautiful, friendly, down-to-earth sounding name Bonnie is.

This was me!
My DD has really grown into her name. We get nothing but compliments on it. We know of no other Bonnie's and as a result of that DD is always memorable.
She's always getting told that she "is indeed a Bonnie wean"!

I'm biased, but i love the name.

Also, as a nn we call her Boo.

No, I don't like it.

KumquatMae Tue 05-Feb-13 21:15:38

Yes. I did know of a dog with the name, but I still like it.

GloryWhole Tue 05-Feb-13 21:17:53

When people ask me who i named my DD Bonnie after, i say it was after the Blue Peter Dog.
I also tell them that should i ever i have a boy then i shall call him Wellard.

Too twee for me.

I have the fat girl connotation although I am embarrassed to admit that
However I have a lovely aunt named Bonnie and her middle name is Marie and I always thought those went well together

CzarChasm Wed 06-Feb-13 04:26:41

One of my best friends is a 31 year old Bonnie. I like it as she is a lovely, lovely person. She gets called Bon as a nn. Middle name is Kate.

I love the name Bonnie - my main association is Gone With The Wind and so my association is a pretty blue-eyed brunette.

Go for it - I love anyone who comes on to ask about a name that is instantly recognisable, nice, timeless - and most importantly - isn't in the top 100 10. smile

It reminds me of Gone With The Wind, but I think I like it.

Oh bugger, Midnight beat me to it!

I think the only issue is that in Scotland it's still used as an adjective but if you don't live in Scotland then that is not an issue.

Good Luck with everything ;0
