Gretchen? Or is it just my hormones!

I like Greta but may be too short with our surname.

I think I am hitting panic mode now as nothing seems quite right or if it is we can't agree.

I'm still fond of Tabitha but DH wrinkles his nose

I like Fleur but that got a resounding no on here

It's a name that feels as if I should love, but I can't get over the 'retch' part.

Greta is nice, same vibe as Heidi

Loyly Thu 20-Oct-16 14:13:00

I dislike it because of the 'retch'.

Gretchen Weiner.

I don't think the name is very fetch though. Greta is so much nicer.

Fleur is beautiful. Gretchen is an old spinster aunt

hoddtastic Thu 20-Oct-16 14:25:32

it's a really ugly sounding name. Greta is pretty though.

What about Wren?

I love Greta and wanted it for Dd but DP vetoed it, not a big fan of Gretchen though

I adore Gretchen, and Greta.

RiverTam Thu 20-Oct-16 19:09:39

Oh, Gretchen is really nice!

Squtternutbosch Thu 20-Oct-16 19:10:21

I think Gretchen is really cute, I prefer it to Greta.

Tabitha is a cat's name though...

Greta is nice but not keen on Gretchen

For some reason Imogen springs to mind when I think of the name Gretchen. Imogen is much prettier.

Greta is nice but Gretchen just sounds horrible to me!

Retchin' Gretchen

Grech the Wretch

Greta is pretty. Gretchen is kind of in the Edith/Maud/Gertrude camp for me, just find them very drudgy old lady names. What's the surname? Nothing wrong with Fleur. What about Freya?

I love Gretchen, and Greta.

Nelleflowerpot Thu 20-Oct-16 20:44:56

I find it rather ugly to be honest.
But how about Margaret then you could use Greta, Margot, Maggy etc???

BennyTheBall Thu 20-Oct-16 20:46:14

It is a very ugly name, imo. Looks ugly and sounds ugly too.

Came in to mention Greta as an alternative I don't like Gretchen sorry.

Pluto30 Thu 20-Oct-16 21:09:01

Greta > Gretel > Gretchen

I think Gretchen is the harshest of the three.

SueTrinder Thu 20-Oct-16 21:55:54

I like Gretchen and the fact that some people find it harsh is one of the reasons why I like it. I'm not a fan of all the little girl names that are popular at the moment.

It makes me think of Gretchen Goes to Nebraska but that's a pretty obscure reference so I wouldn't worry about it.

Love Greta, what a long middle name to lengthen it with ur surname 😊

MotherDuckSaid Thu 20-Oct-16 22:43:20

Gretchen sounds a lot like retching wen said out loud Imo , sorry 😆

MotherDuckSaid Thu 20-Oct-16 22:44:38

What about*
