Which do you prefer for a girl?

Wednesday Addams.

chinley Fri 26-Jul-13 00:20:31

Yeah that's my first thought..,

I went to school with a Tuesday. I like the name, I think it's rather cool.

FingersCrossedLegsNot Fri 26-Jul-13 01:08:20

I like Wednesday....I have always had a girl crush on Wednesday Adams! I wanted to be her when I was younger blush

Wednesday's child is full of woe.

Either unless the child in question was born on neither day!

BOF Fri 26-Jul-13 01:15:39

Why would you want a day of the week anyway, especially if you can't decide which one, so it's not for sentimental reasons? I can understand Nicole Kidman's Sunday Rose, as a) Sunday's child is "bonny and blithe and good and gay" (ie the best in the rhyme), and b) she is a crackers celebrity. But I have to say it seems odd for mortals.

NatashaBee Fri 26-Jul-13 01:28:08

Agree, Sunday is probably the only day of the week name I could live with...

Tuesday - my niece is called Ruby and Tuesday has become a bit of a family nickname for her. I like it.

I think they are both really odd names to give to a child, male or female. Having said that I know someone called September who is happy with their name, so what do I know.

Lutrine Fri 26-Jul-13 03:52:56

Tuesday, I actually know two IRL so it seems less unusual to me!

garlicagain Fri 26-Jul-13 04:16:19

I thought date names reflected the day they were born?
But what do I know ... confused
Actually, all the depictions in the rhyme are positive except Wednesday. And Wednesday's a cool name, so that makes up for it!

sleepingbeautiful Fri 26-Jul-13 05:19:48

Not Wednesday, too negative. But I wouldn't use a weekday name unless the child was born on that day. Too weird otherwise. Like calling a baby Autumn if they're born in May. Just no.

looki Fri 26-Jul-13 11:00:59

Honestly? Both very silly 'names' in my opinion. Isn't there a restaurant in NYC called Ruby Tuesdays?

Can you imagine yourself called such a thing? It's too try hard and ridiculous for me. Apologies but you did ask...

Frikadellen Fri 26-Jul-13 12:34:57

I like Tuesday but not nuts on Wednesday

I will answer your question, rather than be rude:


Still18atheart Fri 26-Jul-13 13:03:48

Wednesday because of Wednesday Addams who is fab.

But both names are a bit too out there for my taste personally.

Pobblewhohasnotoes Fri 26-Jul-13 13:06:00

Neither, sorry. They aren't names. You did ask...

Tuesday is better than Wednesday though.

Eirher as long as it's born on the day. It's like seasons/months - understandable in the right season/month.

garlicagain Fri 26-Jul-13 13:50:53

Can you imagine yourself called such a thing? It's too try hard and ridiculous for me.

That's often been said, on here, about my name! Mine's not a day name, but is a similar level of unusual - uncommon but not rare.

Strangely, I can imagine myself called "such a thing", because it's my name! And you would have to be quite odd to consider a person too try-hard on account of their name.

OP, people tend to remember uncommon names - it's an advantage, unless you were planning on raising a criminal - and all it says about you, as parent, is that you have wider horizons than the bleating masses grin

Tuesday! Love it. DH would never allow it though :-(

MoreThanWords Fri 26-Jul-13 16:18:51

Tuesday - love this name; wanted it for DD2 but her dad wouldn't agree hmm

MoreThanWords Fri 26-Jul-13 16:24:29

Dudley Moore's wife is/was called Tuesday.

Personally I have no issue with calling a child Tuesday if they weren't born on that day - Dd2 would have been Tuesday May - born on a Friday in March! Instead of which, she is her father's choice of a hyphenated -ie ending plus 'filler' name confused

FriskyHenderson Fri 26-Jul-13 16:32:15

Thursday Next. Jasper Fforde has a lot to answer for grin

Daffodill27 Sat 27-Jul-13 19:58:57

What would either be shortened to? As Wednesday is a long name!

Layl77 Sat 27-Jul-13 20:12:39

Wendy for short?

Writerwannabe83 Sat 27-Jul-13 20:55:48

I think if my name was either Tuesday or Wednesday I'd be counting down the days until I was legally allowed to change it....

My guess is your daughter would rather go by her middle name if you inflicted a weekday name upon her - unless that was weird too, lol.

Just my thoughts smile

garlicagain Sat 27-Jul-13 21:29:54

Hah, the other kids might shorten Tuesday to Too. Then, whenever they arranged something between them, they'd say "Are you coming, too?" She'd be the most popular girl in the school grin

LittleprincessinGOLDrocks Sat 27-Jul-13 21:37:39

As much as I love Wednesday Addams, I couldn't name my child Wednesday, or any day of the week for that matter.
It causes confusion at school with a child with a name of a month / season. (personal experience).
Though Wendy is nice.

MsJupiterJones Sun 28-Jul-13 11:11:04

Thursday Next!

I prefer Tuesday.

rosyryan Sun 28-Jul-13 11:33:43

I love Wednesday Addams but I just couldn't do it to a child.

Tuesday is just daft.

invicta Sun 28-Jul-13 11:37:03

Neither !

MinnieBar Sun 28-Jul-13 11:37:45

Do you already have a boy called Friday?

pinktransit Sun 28-Jul-13 12:25:42

I had Tuesday on my list for my daughters.
When I've mentioned it they have looked at me as if I was completely mad sad

I still like it though. I also liked Mercedes, and that meets with the same reaction.

I think it would be quite a cool name.

Wbdn28 Sun 28-Jul-13 19:19:43


I thought Thursday Next too! But of your choices Tuesday is best.

ShadowMeltingInTheSun Sun 28-Jul-13 19:27:30


Because Wednesday's child is full of woe in the nursery rhyme.

Rhubarbgarden Sun 28-Jul-13 22:38:42

Both are rather silly imo.

curlew Sun 28-Jul-13 22:42:57

Or you could call your child an actual name?

No, teenagers would shorten Tuesday to "C U".

I imagine it would get a bit annoying in working life, arranging appointments etc.

Wednesday is a stand out name, not easily shortened " Weds/ Wezza" does not sound good as possibles, though.

There are about a trillion beautiful baby girl names, not sure these are up there.
