I really like this name for a boy. I like unusual names. It's the name of the candle in Beauty & the Beast and I think it sounds so lovely.

Romantica is such a, well, romantic girls name I think. I wonder if it is a real girls name in Italy or somewhere?

No, just no.

Are you on drugs?

Romantica sounds like a bargain basement Walls ice cream.

Lumiere is a Chanel foundation in my world.

Romantica reminds me of 'erotica' and I can't say I'd name my child this.
I quite like Lumiere.

Lumiere is a candlestick. Anyone named Romantica is guaranteed to go the big and ugly route. You may want to consider having children if you can't give them decent names or get over your Disney fetish

No on sooooooooooooooo many levels.

Loomy for short? Really?

Would you want to be called Romantica? I certainly can not think of a single time in my life when I would have wanted that to be my name.

And Lumiere sounds like a gay French something. Nothing wrong with being gay or French but really............

Where do you live? Your dcs would be eaten alive with names like those around here. Maybe where you live they would be quite the norm. My dcs have unusual names but not names that might cause them grief through life.

They are beautiful, romantic sounding names but they would be very hard to live with.

Would you use nick names in general? Romy for a girl is lovely for example.

Are you Victoria Beckham? grin

I thought of Lumiere-Maison for my boys second name. It has a certain ring to it and Romantica-Belle-Eugeniyah for a girl.

You're taking the piss, aren't you? shock

UrsulaBuffay Mon 30-May-11 14:25:00

Go for it hun.

KaraStarbuckThrace Mon 30-May-11 14:25:34

This has GOT to be a wind up.

Or you don't care that your child will be bullied at school.

littleoscarsmama Mon 30-May-11 14:26:09

At least Ursula has got taste.

ManicAnnie Mon 30-May-11 14:26:18


OK, hands up, you got me the first time. But now I know you must be on a wind up.

Maison isn't a name.

Eugeniyah? In the words of Chris Rock 'The Ghetto called and it wants its name back!'

Romantica sounds like they are 'made for luuurrve' .Do you aspitre to her being a porn star!!
Imagine being a judge with a name like that!!
Lumiere a bit better.Still very very pretentious though.

UrsulaBuffay Mon 30-May-11 14:27:49

I think they are unique.

How's about Uniquah?

LOL see it's a wind up! I just hope you haven't given anyone else ideas!

littleoscarsmama Mon 30-May-11 14:28:52

You're being so unkind. I thought Eugeniyah is a bit posh, not ghetto.

K999 Mon 30-May-11 14:29:57

Unkind? If you name your kid that they will probably have unkind remarks made to them all their lives!!

littleoscarsmama Mon 30-May-11 14:30:17

OMG, I love your name, fairydoll. Imagine my little princess called Fairydoll-Glitter. It's the one, I can tell.

How about Mary-Doll? It's more biblical.
