What do you think of this name? Is it popular?

I don't know any under 40. It has a pretty sound to it.

MrsRhettButler Tue 31-May-11 00:36:34

MrsRhettButler Tue 31-May-11 00:38:37

BuntyPenfold Tue 31-May-11 00:43:25

MrsRhettButler Tue 31-May-11 00:48:04

Me too bunty. It came to me one night and I was convinced dp would love it and I got all excited picturing my little simone and then dp came home and gave it an outright no! I'm still sad about it

My ss is Vanessa (40s), and I know 1 4yo.'
Pretty name

i'm thinking it's maybe too soon for a revival, but the only one I ever knew was a trouble-maker so that clouds my judgement.

I really like Simone. Very chic.

Lovely name.

I would put Simone in the same categories as Danielle -- 'unimaginative French', 'wanted a boy', and '80s/90s'.

YUCK! I really dislike it! it's harsh. The 'essa' sound is ugly. I also dislike Melissa though. Some of those 'our age' names are nice though. I like Melanie (pretty) and Jillian and Lindsay.

I don't like it particularly - but I do like Nessie.

Vanessa reminds me of a bitch with whom I had the misfortune of working.

No, I dislike the name, but its probably influenced by name association, as I was bullied in school by a girl called Vanessa. Her nn was Nessie.

Vanessa is a name for a beautiful woman, and is most unfortunate if the child turns out to be a minger. grin

I like Vanessa. And Venetia.
