Does this pass the High Court judge test? I've only known one in RL and she was quite posh. Or is it a bit strippery now?

a rebel, if she's like the only one I ever knew... rebelling against her 'clean living' name, I shouldn't wonder

I know two Heidis - both late thirties, and both dark.
Both successful, one having run her own business stright out of school, and the other has a PhD.

I like the name, as I associate it with the two women I know.

Bloody annoying midwife. In my experience

<unhelpful>

I would probably expect her to be Scandinavian/Austrian/German

Wholesome, always in a sunny mood, tall, blond, pigtails, muesli, goat herding....

Heidi's can have dark hair. It's a great name. It just means heather.

I am! :-) I know 3 Heidis. 2 grammar school girls, the other now a very successive personal trainer. We are all successful in our own fields.
The High court judge test is a little limiting when it comes to girls' names anyway! grin

"Blonde, Swiss, lives up a mountain with her grandfather, has a friend in a wheelchair, fond of goats."

This made me smile squoosh, it was my favourite cartoon as a child (but she had black hair!)

One whose mother didn't understand that she was naming an adult woman, not just a bay and a toddler.

The name has worked very well for me: baby, toddler, child, teen, student and adult.

We had 2 at our school both known locally as the village bikes.

Before knowing them Heidi always made me think of a little girl who live up a mountain with goats and had a friend called Clara.

I know a Heidi. She is Swiss and in her 60s. She is very nice.

Considered Heidi for DD, and then changed to Claudia (pronounced Cloud-ia). She is called neither of those!

The only one I know is fat and a chav. Sorry!

Heidi is on my shortlist smile to be it's a light-hearted outdoorsy type name!

My 2 year old Heidi is cheeky, beautiful and very active!
We loved the name because it is a strong but rarely used name.

Two blonde plaits tied around her head and skipping down a mountain with a basket of flowers.

Seriously, it is the name of DD's hairdresser and she a lovely, smiley sort of woman.

With blond tresses, busty and cheerful :-)
