I'm sorry, I've always hated this name. It doesn't sound like a proper name, it's silly and lightweight. Also, anything that Scarlett O'Hara would name her child is a bad name IMO.

No, not for me.

I'm not keen, it does seem a canine name to me, sorry.

I used to have a cat called Bonnie.

All the currently trendy cutesy names - Poppy, Daisy, Milly, Mollie, Ellie, Bonnie - are going to fall out of fashion as people tire of them. They may, as a result, sound very dated to the 2010s!

I quite like Bonita though.

The Bonnie I know couldn't be less cute. She is head of dd's year and is a fantastic and inspirational teacher. She is strong, confident and independent and a kooky dresser.

It's okay. Won't date anywhere near as badly as all the other cutesy -ee -ie sounding names. But it's very 70's to me and conjures up images of Bonnie Langford and Violet Bott.

Not a fan I'm afraid. Sounds too cutesy for me, and I struggle to picture it on an adult. Just doesn't feel 'substantial' enough. Plus I can't help thinking of the Blue Peter dog!

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

Oh bugger, Midnight beat me to it!

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

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

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 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

Too twee for me.

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.

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

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

CruCru Tue 05-Feb-13 21:14:26

No, I don't like it.

GloryWhole Tue 05-Feb-13 21:03:59

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.

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

Calmisthemantra Tue 05-Feb-13 20:35:41

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

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
