Ok...another thread from me. We're currently down to 3 names now...

Edward (but calling him Teddy)
Llewellyn (Llewi)
Cary .......too feminine do you think?

It sounds too much like Gary, the name that the 70s tried to forget...

Much as I love Cary Grant, it's not a name I'd go for - sorry.

How would you pronounce it? -
I've heard 'Care-ee', 'Carry' and in America (where I know a couple of girls called Carey) it has been pronounced Kerry..?

I think it's ok, but prefer both Edward (Teddy) and Llewellyn (Lewi) by a long way tbh!

Cary - isn't that a medical term for a whole in the tooth?

RockinRobinBird Sun 05-Dec-10 15:29:30

I like it and you don't hear it very much which is always good.

holes in the teeth.
I know a female Carey as well. Still sounds like holes in the teeth.

Cary, to rhyme with Mary is a female family name of mine which was taken from a surname in the 19th century. I love it for a girl, but them I'm biased!

Makes me think of holes in teeth!

Edward is lovely BTW

I love it. There's a 20-something male character on The Good Wife called Carey.

Makes me think guinea pig. Oh no that's cavy.

Edward is my fave.

Cary Grant smile

tammytoby Sun 05-Dec-10 21:05:59

Aren't holes in teeth called CAVITIES?

Northernrose Sun 05-Dec-10 21:11:26

tammy - yes they are, but they're also called 'caries' smile

although the name Cary doesn't make me think of teeth at all tbh!

tammytoby Sun 05-Dec-10 21:36:02

Oh, thanks Northern, I hadn't realised that. I still think of Cary Grant when I hear the name smile.

dental caries

Well it seems like a 50/50 for Cary! Shame as I only think of Cary Grant and never think about dental caries or furry rodents! It goes well with DP's sirname too which is Brooks. Still, the mumsnet jury is harsh, but fair (I think)

ConstanceFelicity Mon 06-Dec-10 14:51:47

I think of Carey get out your cane (Joni Mitchell)

Rafi Mon 06-Dec-10 14:58:36

I like the association with Cary Grant but I'd be more concerned about it sounding like Carrie.

MerryMarigold Mon 06-Dec-10 15:00:58

I love Cary actually.

My step-dad is called Cary and my mum is called Karrie. No lie. When you answer the phone at their house and someone asks for Cary/Karrie, you have to say 'Mr or Mrs?' grin

Like it though - don't think it's too feminine.

takethatlady Tue 07-Dec-10 10:49:25

Pronounces it 'Carry' by the way, as in rhymes with 'Gary'

Hedwig3 Tue 07-Dec-10 10:56:58

Cary - please go for it! envy

ShoppingDays Tue 07-Dec-10 12:12:09

Edward - like, but prefer Ted/Ed as a nickname. Teddy is a toy's name

Llewellyn (Llewi) - not keen personally but nothing wrong with it

Cary - sounds feminine
