Hello!

Hosanna for a girl...any thoughts?

BooBooGlass Thu 26-May-11 20:13:37

Sweet jesus no. Unless you want people like me singing at the poor child.

meditrina Thu 26-May-11 20:14:41

It might be OK, but probably only works if you belong to a fervent branch of Christianity.

noddyholder Thu 26-May-11 20:16:15

No too happy clappy

LadyOfTheCuntryManor Thu 26-May-11 20:17:58

I have a son called Elijah. Might shine some light on our family...!

Jesus Christ Superstar

LadyOfTheCuntryManor Thu 26-May-11 20:20:36

Ruin it for me why don't you?! grin

JustKeepSwimming Thu 26-May-11 20:21:38

Sorry!

now have it in my head for the night as punishment!

LadyOfTheCuntryManor Thu 26-May-11 20:22:38

As do I...

randomimposter Thu 26-May-11 21:19:55

Elijah is really lovely.
Hosanna isn't... she'll be called Ho... maybe you won't mind that hmm

EduStudent Thu 26-May-11 21:31:05

Johanna? Similarish sound but less...well. Just think of the school assemblies!

randomimposter Thu 26-May-11 21:39:10

Edu has picked out my name grin

MelinaM Thu 26-May-11 21:40:44

Hmm... me thinks no!

TooManyBlossoms Thu 26-May-11 21:41:15

Sing Hosanna, sing Hosanna, sing Hosanna to the king of kings...

Thanks, will have that song stuck in my head all night grin.

I think it would be nice in a more christian country or Africa but I think it might cause some giggles at school here for her in this secular society! Its a shame because Its a nice name and idea though.

bleedingstill Thu 26-May-11 22:38:30

wow, I detest pretentious brand new names....but ...I love it!

SpringHeeledJack Thu 26-May-11 22:42:36

a Hosanna used to chase ds round the playground and try to kiss him

her sister was called Blessed, iirc

I think quite fondly of the name. I think tis rather sweet

LadyOfTheCuntryManor Thu 26-May-11 22:42:43

I don't mind it being "funny" in school. I went to a hideous boarding school with an Araminta and she survived hmm

Have my doubts with "Ho" unless it's shortened to "Anna" which is pointless as I dislike it. Hmm.

TheSydenhamSet Thu 26-May-11 22:43:53

ewww.

yousankmybattleship Thu 26-May-11 22:48:43

You are joking?

valiumbandwitch Thu 26-May-11 22:51:47

eyoooo

What about Josie or Susannah, or Gloria!!

Hosanna is silly. Ho for short is asking for trouble.

TheCrackFox Thu 26-May-11 22:59:27

What about Judas - due a revival, no?

CointreauVersial Thu 26-May-11 23:01:51

I know a little girl called Sanne (pronounced Zanner). Similar, but much nicer.

Tommy Thu 26-May-11 23:02:57

Susannah - so much nicer!

LadyOfTheCuntryManor Thu 26-May-11 23:04:36

For a girl?

Would've gone with Lucifer, but I've picked my boys names. Thanks for your suggest CrackHeadFox grin
