May I have your honest opinions please?

I have always liked this name, ever since I became friends with one at university. It really suited my friend and I had not heard it used for a person younger than 60 years old.

Surely Sally has got to be due a comeback?! What do you think-like or dislike?

I like it. Cool and retro!

God I hate it, sorry. My mil is dally and u can only think of her when I see or hear that name!

Love it

I like it too, surprisingly! Didn't think I would.

I know a 19 year old Sally and a 40 year old Sally. Both are lovely.

Perfectly lovely a proper name

Hmm, I like it but it seems like a name a 60 year old would have. Having said that proper elderly lady names have been 'back' for a few years so I guess it's time for the next generation - Sally, Sharon, Linda, Susan to come back. Sally is pretty though.

Love it, and would consider for my own DC. It used to be a common nickname for Sarah, which is another good, solid and currently underused name which I would use in a heartbeat if I didn't have a friend called Sarah

Not keen on it, but then I'm not a fan of the Molly/Polly/Ellie/Lily names which are all really popular - I think you are right that Sally might be next for a revival.

I know a toddler Sally. I like it.

I love this name - it sounds so happy! Go for it!

allegretto Tue 21-Jun-16 19:58:53

I love it and wish I had thought of it for DD!

hesterton Tue 21-Jun-16 19:59:25

Yup, another one with love for the name Sally.

Not for me, I think it sounds soppy. I can't even really explain why but it just makes me think of the name of a dolly or a character in a children's book. Sarah and Sadie (Hebrew version) I like though.

It's awful, sorry.

It's a bit bland. The Sally's I know are all over 60 and lovely people but the name itself is a bit blah.

DH's cousin is Sally. She's 26. It's a plain name, she's lovely but it suits her.

I had a dog called Sally.

CourtJester Thu 23-Jun-16 09:51:31

I don't like it. Sally sounds silly and sad IMO.

I know a Sallyann, and but really doesn't suit her!

HoggleHoggle Thu 23-Jun-16 12:13:37

Sally Webster grin that made me chortle.

I hear Gracie Fields singing Sally, Sally pride of our alley😂
Plus it was the name of MILs shitty arsed little rat of a dog.

Bit 80s/90s Manchester sorry

For some reason, it sounds like a slap to me, so that would be a no. A close friend of mine was considering it very much for her baby until she remembered (weeks into having it in her list) that her husband's surname, which the baby would take, was McNally!

It's lovely smile!
