I quite like it!

God Noooooo!!!!

No

No

Did I say no?

It's quite old fashioned and not in a good way imo.

Maybe you'll start a new trend though grin

It's awful

It screeches 1980s at me... A fantastic decade for music, not so much for names.

ShmooBooMoo Thu 14-Apr-16 23:53:44

Or am I thinking of the 1970s? A terrible decade for music and names?!

Noooooooooooooooooooo. Sorry. It's a sauce for steak.

I much prefer Diana. If you must

Dirty Diana - Michael Jackson. Not good

My childrens names are fucking amazing of course (chosen berore mumsnet was invented)

How would you pronounce it? Round these parts the emphasis is on the first syllable. DYE-ann. Where I grew up its Di-ANNE.

After the fabulous Diane Lockhart? OK then. If not, then just no.

It's probably on the cusp of revival. If you like it use it. Unless your surname is Young.

I quite like it.

I like Diana but not Diane.

DioneTheDiabolist Fri 15-Apr-16 01:45:04

Why not try Dione?

It's a class name.grin

Not keen, and it still seems dated to me. As a French name, I suppose it would be more correct to pronounce it the French way - (Dee-ahn I think), which is marginally better.

Diana is more classic, but I'm still not a massive fan of that.

Love it.

Sophronia Fri 15-Apr-16 08:07:32

I prefer Diana

Oh dear, it's pretty awful. It sounds very stiff and stuffy, I imagine an emotionless older woman with very set hair, wearing a twin set and pearls...

mateysmum Fri 15-Apr-16 09:32:05

Not awful at all - but that's because I was born in an era when Paul, John, Jane Sarah were all popular and to call your child Harry/Arthur/Elsie etc would have been social death!

It's a fashion thing. If you like it, it's a perfectly good name.
