What do you think of Rhiannon as a girl's name? It's listed on Mumsnet's Baby Name Finder.

It always makes me think of Stevie Nicks.

Lovely. Particularly if you are Welsh and can say it properly.

Not keen tbh

I have a sister and a SIL by the name smile and I know another gorgeous little one of around 8 or 9. 'Tis a good name smile

not that common either

FairyArmadillo Fri 27-May-11 17:24:33

I love it and I also love the song.

Nice name, but abhor the nn's Rhi and Nonny!

Not keen. I like loads of Welsh names, but not this one.

Pretty, but I'd be concerned about the lack of nickname potential.

If you move to Wales you won't be able to move without falling over a few. Even where I live in England I know a few.

I quite like Rhian as a nn.

dislike it

fluffles Fri 27-May-11 20:03:43

i prefer rhianna or rianna

pilates Fri 27-May-11 20:06:52

No don't like

SecretNutellaFix Fri 27-May-11 20:37:11

It is most definitely not a name I would ever consider due to personal dislike of a particular bearer of the name. Who insists that "all my friends call me Rhi, so you have to"

Objectively- it's a bit old-fashioned in Wales. I don't know any Rhiannon's under about 20.
Rhian is much prettier and is a name in it's own right, but that's my opinion. If you like a longer Welsh name, Angharad is lovely.

darleneoconnor Fri 27-May-11 21:56:33

I really like it but it does make me think of the singer.

I think it's lovely, a name I've always liked.

Lol at Rhinocerous. I have a friend called Gwenan and my predictive text changes it to Hyena!

I love the name Rhiannon and have quite a few friends with the name. Rhianedd is also nice. But as others have said it needs to be said with a proper Welsh "Rh".
