Well what do you think?

ValiumSingleton Fri 30-Jul-10 23:09:04

I love it.

I love Lois as well which is kind of a similar feel.

opinions (my keys are sticking sorry!)

skidoodly Fri 30-Jul-10 23:10:22

I really dislike it. It manages to sound both ugly and sickly sweet to my ears. It is popular around here, so my view may not be a common one.

ThatVikRinA22 Fri 30-Jul-10 23:11:03

i like it.

skidoodly Fri 30-Jul-10 23:12:17

How Lois similar to Dulcie? Don't get that...

Although I really don't like that either. It's like it had a missing syllable,

ValiumSingleton Fri 30-Jul-10 23:13:16

I don't know really skidoodly, they just seem like old buddies in an old people's home, but the cool ones. Both very eau de wee chic, but in a good way.

rachxx Fri 30-Jul-10 23:17:15

I know what you mean. A kind of 'genre' of names

Hmmmnn it's ok, but I prefer Darcy smile

In Sarah Harrison's The Flowers Of The Field there was a Dulcie, short for Dulcimer. It is a great book. I like it.

AllarmBells Fri 30-Jul-10 23:36:28

as in, I like the name Dulcie

LaundryLyne Fri 30-Jul-10 23:37:02

I think it's the "dull" that puts me off Dulcie.

LJS666 Sat 31-Jul-10 00:16:58

I think a "real" name would be better. "dulcet tones".

SirBoobAlot Sat 31-Jul-10 00:21:38

Really dislike it, sorry.

aJumpedUpPantryBoy Sat 31-Jul-10 00:33:14

I love it.

rachxx Sat 31-Jul-10 09:10:06

Thanks for some POSITIVE opinons.

Just because Dulcie isn't used in the country as much anymore does not mean its not 'real'

At the hospital I work at, there are many patients with Dulcie as their name in their eighties, and I don't think any of them have been told their name isn't real.

I like Dulcie, and to be honest once she is at school you will have all the smart answers about how to pronounce and so on.

blametheparents Sat 31-Jul-10 09:40:24

My niece is called Dulcie.
It is often shortened to the first syllable which I hate.

SirBoobAlot Sat 31-Jul-10 10:04:50

If you ask for opinions, you won't only get POSITIVE ones. hmm

zenoushka Sat 31-Jul-10 10:16:18

I don't hate it and I don't love it, I prefer Darcy.

seeker Sat 31-Jul-10 10:21:54

Don't like the meaning - I like women to have strong names. "Sweet" is a wimpy thing to be called, IMHO.

And it doesn't go with being a kick ass lawyer. Or, for that matter, a morose, plump, spotty teenager.

Good name for a baby, though. Trouble is, it's got to suit her for the next 88 years.

Oh, and asking for opinions will get those who agree and those who don't. That's what "opinion" means!

rachxx Sat 31-Jul-10 10:30:13

Lol i understand that negative comments will follow, but when someone gives me an opinion that doesnt fully explan what they mean, then I will of course fight back, haha.

And I hate names that are stereotypical of jobs! God knows what my job title should be based on my name!


dulciex Mon 29-May-17 12:11:17

Haha people never called me that for long- most used to call me Dulc! I love being a Dulcie but it's annoying that your name is so unique

Moomins67 Mon 29-May-17 12:17:41

First thought was the poem Dulce et Decorum est

Second thought... It's not exactly my jam but it's still a name and looks like one I don't see why not
