We are dead set on Harriet but I just heard this name and thought 'oooh'. What do you think?

blibblibs Tue 12-Feb-13 20:52:49

Love it.
Was my first choice but DH wasn't keen, do love name we picked as much though smile

I really like it but beware of people calling her Vez <shudder>

I knew a girl called this (when I was a young girl). She was a complete witch but I still thought it a pretty name.

I like them both.

Snusmumriken Tue 12-Feb-13 21:05:17

Both names are beautiful.

HestonsFatCock Tue 12-Feb-13 21:09:44

Verity is lovely. It's a bit like Felicity. Nice.

Mylittlepuds Tue 12-Feb-13 21:12:08

DH hates it...

tryhardrep Tue 12-Feb-13 21:13:52

haven't heard that name for years and years. I think it's lovely.

It was on my list when I had DS1 and DS2... one of my favourite girl's names that I never got to use.

I love it. My DH also hates it hmm

PatTheHammer Tue 12-Feb-13 21:16:43

I love it, wanted it for DC2, then he was a DS so had to swiftly change that idea!

Really like it.

Indith Tue 12-Feb-13 21:26:48

Beautiful.

AlwaysHoldingOnToStarbug Tue 12-Feb-13 21:55:00

It's a gorgeous name, I love it!

PurpleStorm Tue 12-Feb-13 21:58:28

I love it.

But names beginning with V don't go with our surname, so it can't be on our girls name shortlist sad

TheBeanAndTheBee Tue 12-Feb-13 21:59:56

I know 2 Veritys (30/40 ish) and neither of them have ever been called Vez! It's a gorgeous name (both veritys i know are lovely too).

I love it and one of my good friends at college was called Verity. But we, and she, all shortened it to Vez, which her parents hated, and she was often called Vezzer the lezzer by the school bullies when she was younger sad

My friend was torn between Verity and Harriet a few years ago and went for Verity in the end. It's a lovely name that suits her daughter down to the ground. I've never heard her being called Vez - she gets 'Vetty' occasionally and my DS called her Betsy and then Berity for ages before learning to pronounce it, though!

QueenoftheWildThings Tue 12-Feb-13 22:09:01

I love it, but live in the east end of London and my dd came home a while ago and told me all about her new friend Ferrety...so probably wouldn't use it here!

Mylittlepuds Tue 12-Feb-13 22:49:46

Ha at Vezza The Lezzer - kids are so original.

MoonHare Tue 12-Feb-13 23:00:01

Oh I LOVE Verity but couldn't use it. We also considered Harriet but of the two I prefer Verity and think it's less prim than Harriet. Verity is pretty without being girly and would suit any age, go for it!

sparkina Tue 12-Feb-13 23:02:48

Love it. X

echidnakid Tue 12-Feb-13 23:16:26

Love it!

Tarlia Wed 13-Feb-13 00:34:13

Pretty! Though not if you live up north, ask a northern friend to say it :S

Love it. My cousin's name is Verity (mid twenties) and she is beautiful inside and out. I've never seen another Verity but I always assume they'll be gorgeous because of her.

MiaowTheCat Wed 13-Feb-13 09:24:27

I liked it for this baby - it got vetoed by hubby (as did Harriet incidentally).

Habanada Wed 13-Feb-13 09:36:25

I love it but I'm ver(it)y biased ;) It's unusual without being wacky I think.
Every Verity I've known has been beautiful inside and out, hence why we chose it.

She does get a veri(e)ty of nicknames including Vera, Vespa, VT, Vivi, Vee, Ferret and Visa. Never had Vez though!

12ylnon Wed 13-Feb-13 09:46:48

Verity is so lovely. The Verity i know is nicknamed 'Vee'... I've never heard anyone call her Vez or Vezza.

Outwardly po faced 1950's vicar's daughter who gets up to all sorts of racy hijinx with the local tearaways.

Sashapineapple Wed 13-Feb-13 14:38:34

Don't like either, sorry. What about Hermione.

Hoaz Wed 13-Feb-13 14:50:51

Tarlia - I was going to say careful of you live in the South! I live in a place where T's are never pronounced. I know a teenage Verity and it makes me shudder every time she says her own name let alone her friends!

Mylittlepuds Wed 13-Feb-13 16:04:02

Okay so (most) seem to think it's nice! I think I'm still set on Harriet (Hattie as nn). What about Harriet Verity? Is that too much of a mouthful?

I like Harriet, but love Verity! It was a name I considered, but DC2 turned out to be a DS!

MidnightMasquerader Wed 13-Feb-13 19:24:17

I don't like it - can't pinpoint why.

But if your DH hates it, then surely it's a no go?

ellesabe Wed 13-Feb-13 19:42:54

It was on my list smile

shoppingtrolley Thu 14-Feb-13 10:46:53

have you considered Verena? I like that.

BeehavingBaby Thu 14-Feb-13 10:52:47

Love it, really really do.
