Due in November and if we are having a girl I really love this as a middle name. It grew on me much watching a TV programme where one of the main characters is called Snow. First name will be either Alana or Bryony.

Any other wintery suggestions would be great smile

I love it I wanted it for my first who was born the week before Xmas but my hubby hated it

Holly? smile

Without wanting to be too unimaginative what about Winter?

Gorgeous go for it. You could even use it as first name and it wouldn't bring any problems. That's the brilliant thing with names now. Anything goes.
Children can be born after days of the week, months of the year, countries, flowers, seasons, planets so why not the weAther.

I'm immersed in once upon a time at the moment and it really works as a name in that, and I think it could work as a middle name.

yep ehric that's exactly where I got the idea from! It just really works which I didn't expect it to.

Eva Holly is lovely but if we decide on Bryony for first name I think that's too many Y's! princessvikki that's a shame, my DH is a bit "meh" about it but he really doesn't seem to bothered by middle names so he will happily go along with it lol squoosh I think Winter is pretty also smile and yes Ilive I agree I think it would be just fine as a first name!

Eira (eye-ra) is Welsh for snow... and is a popular girls' name.

How about Khione? Minor Greek goddess of blizzards.

Eira is lovely, if you can pronounce it correctly (Eh-ee-ra). Snow is different, definitely unusual to Holly, but could certainly work.

From watching Game of Thrones my mind goes to 'bastard'blush.

How is Khinoe pronounced is it like Kee-no?

Eira is beautiful! www.pronouncenames.com/pronounce/eira I just looked this up but tbh I prefer the eye-ra pronunciation but is that sort of "wrong"?

aoife24 haha oh dear! Not a GOT watcher but it's lovely on a character in Once Upon a Time smile

I like it. I know two girls with the middle names Sky and Storm. Makes a change from Rose!

I considered it as a first name! I would have gone for it if dd2 was born in winter.

My dd has middle name Snowflake. She adores it, and it means so much to me as it reminds me of the incredible morning after the evening she was born.

I have had a couple of annoying comments 'sounds like a racehorse' but I don't regret it one bit. She's 6.

I work with a Chinese girl called Snow - I think it's a translation from her Chinese name. Either way, I love it!

liveloveluggage Thu 23-Apr-15 18:55:51

I like it too, very pretty. Holly is a bit too Christmassy unless she is a real Christmas baby (unlikely if due in November). I know of a few Welsh girls called Gweneira that is Snow White translated.

Twinklestar2 Thu 23-Apr-15 18:59:28

Love it! Go for it grin

itsnotmeitsyou1 Thu 23-Apr-15 19:04:16

Once, it's not 'sort' of wrong, it's simply the wrong pronunciation. Doesn't matter in English I guess, but it kind of takes away from the translation, which is the whole point. In any case, Snow is a perfectly acceptable name, and a nice variation on the usual wintery names.

Yes Snow would be a nice name, why not? Otherwise...

Eve (Christmas/New Year's...)
Ivy
Robin
Juniper

I think any name can be used as a mn as realistically apart from the birth announcement, and at weddings, when do you really hear people's mn?
If you love it i wouldn't give it a second thought as to using it.
If your child doesn't love it, it won't matter for the above reasons.

As a first name though i personally do not like it as it doesn't feel like a real name, probably because the only Snow i 'know' is Snow White

Rhubarbgarden Thu 23-Apr-15 22:14:52

I like it. I like Storm too.

AuntieStella Thu 23-Apr-15 22:19:52

I think (but am not 100% sure) that Khione is Kee-oh-nee

cleas Thu 23-Apr-15 22:27:46

Just wanted to add... Eira can really be properly pronounced either way. It's generally dependent on region/accent so if you prefer one way or the other it doesn't make it 'wrong'.
