I met a teen at the hairdressers by this name. It's really grown on me, I love nature names but struggle to convince dh...!

He likes it however so it's a contender. We had decided on Tabitha but I've really gone off it now so I'm pleased to find another option.

I like it, think it is pretty and unusual without sounding ridiculous. I have never come across it before

BitchPeas Fri 05-Aug-16 19:19:45

I really like it.

BitchPeas Fri 05-Aug-16 19:19:58

Which surprises me!

Coffeeandafag Fri 05-Aug-16 19:22:05

Pretty and unusual, without sounding ridiculous is pretty much what I aspire to! Great, thanks smile

If thats the choice I'd go with tabitha

I love nature names too but beware that many people when they hear 'lark' associate it not with the bird but with mucking about.

I think of "lark around" as well.

Also... quite aside from it having barely any precedent as a name, it's kind of a strange sounding name, don't you think? Kind of short and harsh, when you say it out loud a few times.

I don't like Lark.

What about Wren or Linnet if you are liking bird names?

I like it. Heard it on TV lately for a boy and thought what a lovely name.

Much prefer Lark to tabitha

Also like wren.

I like the sound of lark but I don't think it's a proper name.
I met a falcon at work the other day. It kinda seemed to suit her even though I thought I'd misheard at first

I know of one but she's in New Zealand. Lovely name though.

Mmm, I'm not sure about it. I think it's too wacky for me. However, I'm a firm believer that you should choose whatever name you like. Its the type of name that you would get used to quickly.

What's your surname like?

TroysMammy Fri 05-Aug-16 20:34:55

In Welsh, Llinos means linnet. I do like Tabitha though.

IHeartKingThistle Fri 05-Aug-16 20:37:22

I know a female Larkin. I think it's OK but any names with an 'r' in like that are potentially problematic depending on the accent!

BustingOut Fri 05-Aug-16 20:38:15

Are you having a ?

Jacobbay Fri 05-Aug-16 20:38:49

Robin is as far as I would go with bird names

If you ever moved to Hull you'd get kids knocking on your door asking if Lark's larking tonight.

One of Mia Farrow's DC was called Lark.

EllyMayClampett Fri 05-Aug-16 20:46:49

I like it. I wanted to name my second child who came early and quickly Lark. But it was my husband's turn to choose. So we stuck with his choice. ...but she is still my morning Lark!

I considered Wren and like it but I can't quite get away from the Navy Wrens association.

I like the bird/larking around connotations, makes it sound fun and light and happy.

Linnet makes me think of bird seed, why's that? Not keen on Larkin. I like lana/Lara but dh doesn't so I guess that sound still speaks to me, the long A sound.

No plans to move to Hull grin

No dont like it,sorry

CatherineDeB Fri 05-Aug-16 21:35:26

I really like it, not fluffy at all and individual.

You could have a fairly traditional middle name, three or four syllable. E.g. Lark Elizabeth Smith.
