Do you like Naomi?

Do you know any? Do the parents get good reactions to the name?

Actually, I do rather like Naomi.

But I don't know any...

I really like Naomi, but only when pronounced nay-oh-mee with all syllables equally stressed. I really don't like the way everyone else seems to say it: nay-OH-meh. It would have been 1st choice for me but didn't fancy correcting people all the time. Plus I didn't have a daughter!

Lovely!

I moan.....

She was DDs Y6 buddy and she was lovely. She still removers DD and they are 22&15.

I have a soft spot for Naomi grin

Lovely name. I don't know any.

I love the name Naomi.

Really, really wish we'd used it for dd1. In the and dd2 couldn't be Naomi either, as it is too similar to dd1's.

It is gorgeous & would get a great reaction.

I love Naomi

I have a Naomi, she is 10!

I chose it and had to convince dh, it is such a lovely name.

It is not too popular but not unusual and apart from the odd person calling her Niomi which makes me stabby most people know how to pronounce it!

Over the years we have only met one or two, apart from one day in Hampton Court when there were three of them in the same room.

I don't think you could pick a better name!

Oh and yes it is i moan backwards, this is very appropriate for dd1 though so i love it!!

Love it - biased though!

Lovely

Lovely. I know one aged 15 but it's rather unusual, without being wacky.

I love the song White by Naomi.

I love the name & the 4 year old I know is lovely.

MacCrackles Sat 22-Jun-13 21:22:21

A lovely name. I would pronounce it Nay oh me but there is a girl in my Dd's class pronounced with the emphasis on the OH.

The first and only Naomi I know of is a total cow bag so I couldn't pick it because I'd always think of her, but it is a lovely name. Not too common, not too out there, sweet when they're little, strong when they're older- all the qualities I like in a name.

I know one who is about 6, she's adorable and her name really suits her. Her mum pronounces it Nay-OH-mi, I've never heard it with all syllables equally emphasised.

I also know a six year old Naomi who is gorgeous. One of my friends growing up was a Naomi too. So only two people. I think it's lovely and also pretty unusal yet still known...

Cherryoats Sat 22-Jun-13 23:09:42

My friend is an adult naomi, her and her name are both lovely!

Ham69 Sun 23-Jun-13 13:19:47

I know 2 adult Naomi's, a 2 year old and the cutest 3 month old baby. I like it.
