Do you like it or not?

Nannawifeofbaldr Fri 19-Aug-16 19:27:47

As in the artistic movement?

PotatoBread Fri 19-Aug-16 19:29:43

Ridiculous IMO, sorry.

Lilacpink40 Fri 19-Aug-16 19:30:21

No sorry.

Newes Fri 19-Aug-16 19:30:24

No. I hear it in Uncle Monty's voice.

Vixxfacee Fri 19-Aug-16 19:30:47

How do you pronounce?

EllenDegenerate Fri 19-Aug-16 19:31:50

Yes as in the artists and to rhyme with Clove.

Vixxfacee Fri 19-Aug-16 19:38:05

Terrible sorry.

Nannawifeofbaldr Fri 19-Aug-16 19:38:25

But but but les Fauves were described as "wild beasts" no?

I like the art but I'm not sure about it as a name.

Eh?confused

Sandyknickers Fri 19-Aug-16 19:39:57

I love it, I know a girl called fauve.

Honeybee79 Fri 19-Aug-16 19:40:09

I wouldn't. People would be constantly mishearing/misspelling/mispronouncing it.

fluentinsarcasm Fri 19-Aug-16 19:46:49

Confused...is it pronounced Flove if it rhymes with Clove?

Boy or girls name?

EllenDegenerate Fri 19-Aug-16 20:01:28

No it rhymes with clove, there is no L sound.

It's a girls name.

There's a breed of small, cute, scruffy looking French scenthound called the Basset Fauve de Bretagne, although unless you're a dog-saddo vet like me that's probably not going to be the first thing that springs to mind. When she's old enough you could get Fauve a Fauve smile

MargoReadbetter Fri 19-Aug-16 20:15:16

No. Flavia is lovely though.

MrsGsnow18 Fri 19-Aug-16 20:15:57

Is it pronounced F -ove with the ove being the same as in clove or drove?

It's not terrible. It looks nice written down.
It would certainly require spelling out for most I'd imagine it help with pronouncing.

SucculentSoul Fri 19-Aug-16 20:17:55

I knew a girl called Fauve. No one could pronounce it properly when the they sawere it written down. I don't have strong feeling about it either way, don't like it, don't hate it.

Fauve Fri 19-Aug-16 20:19:39

Oh, I love it.

grin

JinkxMonsoon Fri 19-Aug-16 20:19:54

Fove?

Nope.

Stevefromstevenage Fri 19-Aug-16 20:21:11

I have heard of a few. It is a nice name.

CharlieSierra Fri 19-Aug-16 20:22:17

I was at school with a Fauve, I love it.

NeedACleverNN Fri 19-Aug-16 20:24:18

I bet I'm not the only person who pronounced it as faw-ve

EllenDegenerate Fri 19-Aug-16 20:27:46

Oh I didn't know we already had one on MN!

That's fab actually grin
