I have always loved this name, it would be shortened to Minty. Thoughts?

I dont want to be pedantic but wouldnt it be spelt 'Araminta'?
I like Minty or Mint as a nn but it depends where you will be living tbh.

Love it.

It reminds me of a children's program I used to watch in the 80's. Can't for the life of me remember what it was called, but loved her name.

I love it and would use it! It's spelt Araminta though, only one r

SuperManStoleMyPants Sun 06-Nov-16 16:02:15

Yup only meant to be one r. My phone is having a bit of a paddy of late with touch sensitivity.

I love it, but i do think it depends where you will be living like previous poster.

Definitely Araminta (and I love it). I have a friend with a sister called this (Minta for short).

I went to nursery with an Araminta, nn Minty smile She was bright blonde so it suited her. The only other Araminta I've known was a pig who was made into delicious sausages. I like the name but because of that it feels a bit porcine to me! Love Minty actually, cute!

I live in London.

It's one of my favourite names but I can't stand Minty

Madbengalmum Sun 06-Nov-16 16:58:59

then go for it.

legotits Sun 06-Nov-16 17:00:13

Love it.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 06-Nov-16 18:01:22

Yep, go for it. 😄

PoldarksBreeches Sun 06-Nov-16 18:04:09

Oh no it's awful! 80s posho.

FenellaMaxwell Sun 06-Nov-16 18:12:11

I love it, largely because of the book 'Moondial'! grin

legotits Sun 06-Nov-16 19:12:18

Me too Fen grin

Pluto30 Sun 06-Nov-16 19:22:08

I don't like it. Very OTT. And I hate Minty.

SuperManStoleMyPants Sun 06-Nov-16 19:54:04

I've never heard of Moondial, I'll have to look it up.

FenellaMaxwell Sun 06-Nov-16 19:56:41

It's a book by Helen Cresswell, and was also a children's tv series in about 1989. Both were fab!

FenellaMaxwell Sun 06-Nov-16 19:57:01

Be warned - it's quite sad though!

RiverTam Sun 06-Nov-16 20:02:24

Minty sounds like a Sloane ranger boarding school gal with swishy blond hair, probably not the brightest spark. Works in a posh shop and lives in a central London flat paid for by Mummy and Daddy.

Really not keen (in case you hadn't guessed!)

Ledehe Sun 06-Nov-16 20:04:28

This reminds me of the Janet and Roy thread......

user1478450549 Sun 06-Nov-16 20:05:56

It's very sloany. She'll need a velvet alice band and some pearls to wear in her range rover!

Ohyesiam Sun 06-Nov-16 20:08:37

Cute, infact for some reason I occasionally call my daughter that!

Baylisiana Sun 06-Nov-16 20:15:39

Love this name. Shame it does have some Sloaney associations but maybe they will fade soon.
