Hiya, this is hyperthetical at the moment - just starting TTC DC2.
Went to Willows farm today & thought that Willow would make a really pretty girls name.
What are your thoughts?

Oh, I agree, it is totally a nature name. And I'm with you on the so be it front - I wasn't saying that I want a skinny DD. Just worried that a name like Willow could make it seem like I wanted/assumed DD would be skinny.

It's my weird hang up and no reason not to use the name.

It is a nice name but it would just constantly remind me of the Warwick Davis movie of the same name.

DD is called Willow I love it. She was one of only 2 girls in the baby ward 2 years ago and they were both called Willow it is very popular round here

I'm not sure about willow tbh, we know 3 willows aged 3 and under and I think it's the Olivia of tomorrow......

Not keen, sounds too away with the fairies imo

Makes me think of cricket, but then it is that time of year.

It seems to be unisex now, and getting very popular.

I like it, but is it wrong to think it would only suit an ethereal type child? ��
Whoever said up thread that Winter is a crap name, I don't reckon it is, I think it's pretty cool.

I once met a Midwinter, think it's fabulous.

Iv now decided I love it - all I need to do now is get pregnant & have a girl so I can use it

It makes me think of witches, not just the Buffy connection but witches often have a willow and a Rowan tree in the garden.

Not keen. It feels like a default hippy name when the parents are not brave enough for the really 'out there' ones!

It's a bit drippy for me, prefer Rowan. LOVE Winter!

Witches don't have Rowan trees, Rowan is planted outside a front door to keep witches away. Just saying.

Willow is a lovely name.

Love Willow. It sounds soft, gentle.
