Which do you prefer for a girl?

No, teenagers would shorten Tuesday to "C U".

I imagine it would get a bit annoying in working life, arranging appointments etc.

Wednesday is a stand out name, not easily shortened " Weds/ Wezza" does not sound good as possibles, though.

There are about a trillion beautiful baby girl names, not sure these are up there.

Or you could call your child an actual name?

Both are rather silly imo.

Tuesday.

Because Wednesday's child is full of woe in the nursery rhyme.

I thought Thursday Next too! But of your choices Tuesday is best.

Neither.

Tuesday.

I think it would be quite a cool name.

I had Tuesday on my list for my daughters.
When I've mentioned it they have looked at me as if I was completely mad sad

I still like it though. I also liked Mercedes, and that meets with the same reaction.

Do you already have a boy called Friday?

Neither !

I love Wednesday Addams but I just couldn't do it to a child.

Tuesday is just daft.

MsJupiterJones Sun 28-Jul-13 11:11:04

Thursday Next!

I prefer Tuesday.

As much as I love Wednesday Addams, I couldn't name my child Wednesday, or any day of the week for that matter.
It causes confusion at school with a child with a name of a month / season. (personal experience).
Though Wendy is nice.

Hah, the other kids might shorten Tuesday to Too. Then, whenever they arranged something between them, they'd say "Are you coming, too?" She'd be the most popular girl in the school grin

I think if my name was either Tuesday or Wednesday I'd be counting down the days until I was legally allowed to change it....

My guess is your daughter would rather go by her middle name if you inflicted a weekday name upon her - unless that was weird too, lol.

Just my thoughts smile

Wendy for short?

Daffodill27 Sat 27-Jul-13 19:58:57

What would either be shortened to? As Wednesday is a long name!

FriskyHenderson Fri 26-Jul-13 16:32:15

Thursday Next. Jasper Fforde has a lot to answer for grin

Dudley Moore's wife is/was called Tuesday.

Personally I have no issue with calling a child Tuesday if they weren't born on that day - Dd2 would have been Tuesday May - born on a Friday in March! Instead of which, she is her father's choice of a hyphenated -ie ending plus 'filler' name confused

MoreThanWords Fri 26-Jul-13 16:18:51

Tuesday - love this name; wanted it for DD2 but her dad wouldn't agree hmm

Choccyhobnob Fri 26-Jul-13 16:13:10

Tuesday! Love it. DH would never allow it though :-(

garlicagain Fri 26-Jul-13 13:50:53

Can you imagine yourself called such a thing? It's too try hard and ridiculous for me.

That's often been said, on here, about my name! Mine's not a day name, but is a similar level of unusual - uncommon but not rare.

Strangely, I can imagine myself called "such a thing", because it's my name! And you would have to be quite odd to consider a person too try-hard on account of their name.

OP, people tend to remember uncommon names - it's an advantage, unless you were planning on raising a criminal - and all it says about you, as parent, is that you have wider horizons than the bleating masses grin

Eirher as long as it's born on the day. It's like seasons/months - understandable in the right season/month.

Neither, sorry. They aren't names. You did ask...

Tuesday is better than Wednesday though.
