Loving Kitty, Betsy, Pearl, Peggy and Martha so far! So what is the general consensus about Betty Brophy? Is it too matchy matchy or could we get away with it?

GloriaPritchett Tue 05-Mar-13 19:07:01

It really reminds me of Betty Boop to be honest.

CheeseStrawWars Tue 05-Mar-13 19:09:16

If Betty was the nickname and Elizabeth the full name, I think it's lovely.

FoofFighter Tue 05-Mar-13 19:14:37

I like it, think Betsy Brophy sounds better though

LuluLovesYou Tue 05-Mar-13 19:16:14

Well if you like it then go for it! But will your DD like it when she is fifteen and twenty and thirty?
