Wren as a name for a girl?

Beautiful smile

No. Sounds lovely and delicate but imagine that name on a big clumsy child or a 6 foot tall middle aged lady. Not what you want to think about when naming your precious baby I know, but I think it'd be a hell of a name to carry off if you're anything less than a delicate wee thing

Still makes me think immediately of the Royal Navy.

I like it.

It's on my list!

Like it a lot as a middle name but probably not as a first name.

Thanks everyone- I am still undecided!

Ok but to me it's a bit like calling your child Willow - ensure your genes will create a waif like child to match the name. For the child's sake.

do the test............

'All rise for Judge Wren Forster..............

This is your captain Wren Norris speaking........

This is Wren Jenkins, in the Gulf for BBC news.................

I would not like to be called Wren at my age. I am 42.

This is Wren.... and Stimpy.

I find it very masculine and un-elegant sounding, sorry.

Rhubarbgarden Sun 03-Mar-13 22:11:08

I love it.

DessieLou Sun 03-Mar-13 22:30:15

No, it's a harsh ugly sounding name to my ears. Sorry!

Pelvic beat me to it.

Ren and Stimpy. Sorry.

I have heard it a lot on MM but don't know of any in rl. It makes me think of something small and dainty with a loud song. I personally would prefer Robin but Wren is softer than Lark.
