So after thinking I was settled on a name I now have been tempted by Pearl. What do you think? Do you know any (under the age of 70)...... If so, do they like being called Pearl? I think it would be nice on a little girl!

No don't know any under,70 but why not.great name.

How does it go with your surname? Please tell me it's not Gates.

My dd's name isn't Pearl (it's Lucy) but it's what she has been called since her earliest days by everyone who knows her and it's what she answers to and calls herself. I love the name and dd was called it initially because she is small and precious.She's 10 now and have never had any bad reactions to Pearl as a name.

Awh that's a lovely story insanity! Moom no it's not gates!

Moominsarehippos Sun 10-Mar-13 15:46:32

Please let it be Dean then!

I like it. Don't know any.

RooneyMara Sun 10-Mar-13 16:10:36

it's nice, I only know of one and she's a teenager. It's lovely.

Pearl is in the same category as Ivy, Iris, Evelyn of which I can't stand.

But for some reason I quite like Pearl.

I love it. There's a stunning medieval poem called Pearl written from the point of view of a father about his daughter.

iheartmycat Sun 10-Mar-13 20:35:09

I'm afraid I immediately thought of pearl necklace... Which would be awful for her in her teen years.

NightmareSpoon Sun 10-Mar-13 20:37:51

I know 2 Pearls. I love it.

determinedma Sun 10-Mar-13 21:14:31

In Scotland it will be pronounced Peril

ThePathanKhansAmnesiac Sun 10-Mar-13 21:16:38

Love it.

Jellykat Sun 10-Mar-13 21:28:31

Lovely name.

JollyYellowGiant Sun 10-Mar-13 21:33:30

Agree with determined. In a Scottish accent it sounds dire. Peril.

WinkyWinkola Sun 10-Mar-13 21:34:45

It's beautiful.

ClaraBean Sun 10-Mar-13 21:50:12

I have a 7 year old Pearl, and I love it.
She wishes she was called Shirley!

I like it but if you are nervous you could use Margaret (or a form of it - Margot) and use Pearl as a nickname.

Wishfulmakeupping Mon 11-Mar-13 06:04:02

I don't know any Pearl's really like it

williaminajetfighter Mon 11-Mar-13 06:06:13

Lovely

Pearl was top of my list but dh vetoed as had a cat named Pearl. We chose Margot instead as it means Pearl. I think its a beautiful name.
