I love it (but dp vetoed it for my 8 week old dd)

Popeyes wife hmm

But nicer than Olivia

Sorry more than three grin

Haha! DH will be so happy! He predicted an Olive comeback 17 years ago when we considered Olivia and I said that would never happen. I won't tell him though. I do hate him being right.

It's cute. I like it

MyBoysAreFab Wed 14-Aug-13 09:20:21

I love it!

telsa Wed 14-Aug-13 13:15:58

strong, individual, quirky

I love it. And would use it, except it's awful with DP's surname Brown.

Mumblyboo Wed 14-Aug-13 13:57:44

ooh i really like all the three (and more) word associations. I do love it, DH not so sure but its the number one contender and i have a lovely, v girly middle name to put with it to 'pretty' it up....

I like it OP!

Quirky, strong yet cute.

Very cute and different (in good way)

It's a food.

Oily, herby, salty olive! I'm honestly surprised that some of you find that 'cute' shock!?

Olivia, on the other hand, is lovely. Also sounds good in other languages, but try saying Olive in French or German smile.

My DMiL was Olive sad.

Ugly austerity ridden all joy And colour sucked outof life. Sorry, but you did ask. Three words were not enough.

Love it- it was on my list smile

I used to love it but have gone off it of late. I think the overuse of Olivia and Oliver make it a bit blah.

No and no.

Not a good name for an adult either.

DH suggested this for DD. I really dislike it, it is a very harsh, matronly, middle aged name imo.
