What do people think of the name Harriet. We would probably call her Hattie day to day.

Love it, one of my favourite girls names.

Gorgeous and one of my favourites too.

I think it's lovely , although I have a Hattie and it gets a lot of hmm looks

It's ok but a bit plain imho. DD (4) had 3 Hatties at preschool (total 35 kids, 20 in each session).

It's a safe choice but leaves me feeling a bit meh.

Love it.

Love it, even suggested it to my DH but then realised with my cockney accent she'd get called 'ah-ee'!
Make sure you're in an area where people pronounce their h's and t's

I love it, but I am biased! At the moment it's not shortened, but dd is only 4.6 years, so I'm sure it will be soon!

I'm not a big fan, I find the 't' ending a bit sharp

BearFeet Wed 05-Oct-16 07:26:54

Love it.

I'm a Harriet and most people don't really say the 't' so it's not that sharp. Sounds a bit prissy if you say the 't'. I'm a Harry. Like my name!

I love it. We were planning on using it for our daughter but she didn't 'fit' the name.

jessica29054 Wed 05-Oct-16 07:28:53

It's lovely.

NavyandWhite Wed 05-Oct-16 07:44:36

I've got a T ending (sound) name and the T isn't accentuated! I can't think of any name that would be!?

Blu Wed 05-Oct-16 07:48:53

Great name.
I wish I was called Harriet!

BendydickCuminsnatch Wed 05-Oct-16 08:22:24

Yes, it's the same as Charlotte, Scarlett etc, not a crazy OTT T! smile

ElizaDontlittle Wed 05-Oct-16 08:24:33

Only know one, and love it. Lovely classic timeless name.

Sandsnake Wed 05-Oct-16 08:44:33

Big fan.

Caldini22 Wed 05-Oct-16 08:51:34

Good point maybe I'm overthinking it :-)

0pti0na1 Wed 05-Oct-16 08:54:31

I find it a bit prim TBH, but a lot of people like it so take no notice of me grin

Unfairestofthemall Wed 05-Oct-16 08:56:13

It's my DDS name and I love it. She's only 7 months old so has no opinion yet. Haven't had a negative comment though smile

I usually hate girl versions of boy's names, but I make an exception for Harriet!

Harriet Vane is a brilliant role model too.

NavyandWhite Wed 05-Oct-16 08:59:06

Henrietta is another gorgeous H name..

Sugarpiehoneyeye Wed 05-Oct-16 09:07:44

I have a Harriet Matilda (Hattie).
It's a lovely name 😄

I like it smile
