I'm thinking of adding Eartha to my list of girl options but would like to know other opinions/first impressions of this name? Also any other girl's names you think I might like (espec beginning with 'E")

Thanks :-)

Eartha... U need to be quite a character to pull off this name. Yaya? Aisling? Elfin? Elvira? Lenora? Linnea? Merixchell? Artemis? Loveday? Lotus? More marmite names!

Very difficult to pronounce

Ooh, not Eartha. Really for the rhyming slang. Elena/Eleanor/Elsbeth/Elodie/Emma?

I like Eartha! Eartha Kitt is super cool.

Annora Carrot is only a problem if you're English wink

Just seen that thread on active seashell - I hadn't seen it before.

I can't see the test thingy on my tablet screen though as its too small sad

I don't like it personally, like someone else said it sounds quite ugly. My own opinion however..

My first thought was poo

Eartha is better than all those horrid old lady names.

I saw eartha kitt in an interview and she seemed really cool.

I like Estella too.

Also Ebony, Emer, Etaine, Elaine, Elena, Evan, Ever, Eleica.

I like it!

I might spell it Ertha just because Eartha is a bit earthy.

Great sound to it.

Elvie?

Artandco Fri 02-May-14 19:01:45

What about Inara?

BethGoLightly Fri 02-May-14 19:08:43

It's awful, sorry.

Ursula is the name you need, I reckon.

Eartha Kitt was a pretty cool woman actually. She had a really hard childhood but was a pretty big star until she blotted her copybook in the USA speaking out against the Vietnam war. She wsd called a sadistic nymphomanic by the CIA! You can't get better than that.

Endellion?

I really like the name and have toyed with adding it to my list. I also like

Thora
Hera
Astrid

Rhyming slang for shit round here. It would be like calling a baby Poo.

Fantastic name. So strong. And listen to some Eartha Kitt now!

RaisingSteam Sat 03-May-14 00:27:42

I know an Eartha and she is as lovely as her name. So I'd vote yes.

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 03-May-14 01:29:38

Eartha is hideous. Regardless of the amazingly talented namesake.

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 03-May-14 01:30:25

I second Ursula.

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 03-May-14 01:31:20

Sorry, Ursula is a great name is what I meant.

Tranquilitybaby Sun 04-May-14 08:12:32

No because of the rhyming slang

Only1scoop Sun 04-May-14 08:19:19

If you told me you were prg with an 'Eartha' I probably would chuckle....just a little smile
