I'm guessing it's quite an old fashioned name as I've looked after a few elderly ladies with this name, but haven't come across any little dulcie's yet. What's everyone's opinion x

Very nice.

I know a couple of teenage Dulcies.

Is it pronounced Doll cee if so love it!

It's very pretty, a lovely name, and a name that will grow up with her.

Yes Doll-Cee smile

Love it, have loved it for forever. There is a character (tiny part) in the movie Cocktail called Dulce and I've loved it since then.

AliciaMayEmory Fri 30-Oct-15 17:46:18

Ahhh, in always thought it was pronounced Dul-Chee!

Now I know the correct way to say it I think it is lovely.

Dulcie Clementine would be FAB (I know you didn't ask for middle names but can't help myself) also Dulcie Juniper!

Jamie Dornan has a Dulcie!

Are you certain about the Doll-Cee pronunciation?

All the ones I've met are Dull-Cee (which is lovely) so you and she will have a lifetime of correcting it as I think it naturally reads as Dull-Cee.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Fri 30-Oct-15 18:02:50

I think the pronounciation is more like Dull-sea

MeAndTheMajor Fri 30-Oct-15 18:08:03

The Dulcie that I know in real life (early 30s) definitely pronounces her name 'Dullsea'. I've never heard it said 'Dollcee'.

I love the 'Dullsea' pronunciation, not so sure about it said with the 'Doll' sound.

Was on my shortlist. Classic and pretty.

Bellejournee Fri 30-Oct-15 18:59:04

It's on our list! Love it!

heavenstobetsy Fri 30-Oct-15 19:03:49

I love it - I only know one, born a few weeks ago and she's Dulcie Rae

tilliebob Fri 30-Oct-15 19:06:48

I only know Dulcie from the Miss Read books am an old fart I like it!

Lunastarfish Fri 30-Oct-15 19:23:31

I know a 2 year old Dulcie. I think it's lovely, I was quite disappointed a friend chose the name as it had always been on my name list

villainousbroodmare Fri 30-Oct-15 19:30:58

I think it's very cute. It has an appealing cuddly feel to it.
Is it short for something?

Bohemond Fri 30-Oct-15 19:32:16

I know a lovely Dulcie aged 11

DontBeAThoughtlessBirdie Fri 30-Oct-15 19:33:43

I quite like it but, unreasonably, I also think of 'dunce'.

celtictoast Fri 30-Oct-15 19:34:26

Sorry but I don't like it. It's a bit fusty sounding.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Fri 30-Oct-15 19:34:50

Horrible sorry, but it seems very popular on here

reuset Fri 30-Oct-15 22:12:24

It's dull-see, not d o ll-sea. If you're going to use it make sure you can pronounce it vaguely correctly is my tip of the day.

Twee meaning (sweet) and dulce du leche springs to mind (yum, though it is sickly sweet, granted). Nick name 'dull'. Not one of my favourite names

reuset Fri 30-Oct-15 22:14:35

You could probably have it short for Dulcinea (v. Don Q.) or Dulcibel, or some other such name, so then Dulcie on its own starts to look more appealing.

reuset Fri 30-Oct-15 22:15:11

To whoever asked if it was short for something...

Urghhhh, no.
Though I seem to be in a minority.
A marmite name?
