opinions please!

I think it's a pretty sounding name, but at the moment it reminds me of the eighties and Mrs Cole.

yuk. sorry. know a few (who are lovely fwiw) but i really struggle to say their name... need to keep reminding myself to use the ch sound and not the 'sh' sound

Awful. Cole cannot make it a good name. It is cheap, made up sounding, 80s-tastic and just 'orrible.

Jojay Wed 24-Nov-10 19:52:36

Nope, horrid. Sorry.

I knew a 'Sheryl' once and she was barking mad. Pleeeease noooooo. Do it for me!

AlphaSchmalpha Wed 24-Nov-10 22:12:50

good, glad you all agree - it is on "the list" of a really good friend, who I thought usually had excellent taste. I will do my best to talk her round. or send her here!

LynetteScavo Wed 24-Nov-10 22:14:57

Cheryl form Bucks Fizz, Cheryl Colse, Cheryl the girl I knew at high school....based on this I would say avoid.

randomimposter Wed 24-Nov-10 22:16:22

just no

Suncottage Wed 24-Nov-10 22:23:51

Rita Crudgington - that is the real name of Cheryl from Bucks Fizz - Cheryl is an improvement I guess.

Bue Wed 24-Nov-10 22:23:55

Alpha, I'm so relieved it's not on YOUR list! It's horrible.

nannynobnobs Thu 25-Nov-10 14:00:24

Dislike. Noooooo.

kreecherlivesupstairs Thu 25-Nov-10 14:01:58

No. All the Cheryls I've known have been self absorbed mares. I really don't like it as a name let alone with the connections I make with Ms D, W and G.

Bloody awful.

Cheryl was my late mother's name, born in the 1940's. Her mil could never get the hard 'ch' right, as in church, and always said Sheryl. If we'd have had a daughter I would have loved to try and use it as a middle name but it is such a hard sounding name, and looks very odd written down too. And as everyone here has proved, it prejudices people something chronic...

thefurryone Fri 26-Nov-10 14:36:06

All the Cheryls I've come across pronounce it Sheryl and I thought that was how Cole pronounced her name? Is it a North/ South thing?

Oddly I haven't liked any of the Cheryls I've known either!
