Well, it seems that we used the only name we liked and agreed on for DD1. DD2 is due in September and we seem to be stuck...

What's the Mumsnet's opinion of the above, please?

I just think of the daughter from Absolutely Fabulous. I'm sure your daughters peers will not made the association.

Beautiful name, I know of a Sorrell which I think is gorgeous too.

Yes - there are a lot of them amongst the posh set around here.

Not really bothered about Ab Fab, like the shortened Saffie as well, actually. Just wanted to put the feelers out, chosing a name is such a bloody hard work! Thanks!

Quite like Sorrell, too. I am quite sure DH would look at me funny, though...

Saffron is very nice. Chardonnay is in a league of its own....

I don't like it personally, sorry.

I think it's a bit naff I'm afraid- in the same genre as Chardonnay -I have a close friend with a daughter called Saffron and it hasn't grown on me at all - bit its just personal taste- my friend still loves it

Saffron sounds very unfeminine - I don't like it at all, I'm afraid.

I would link Saffron with Sienna, India and Jasmine. No where near as bad as Chardonnay but verging on the same territory.....

It's not to my taste! but only Chardonnay is like Chardonnay. I can't believe that people were inspired by a PISS-take!!

Oh, no! 180 degree swing in consensus! This is too much! Well, we still have four months to think... Thanks All.

I think it's in the same camp as Chardonnay - or Shardonai as a girl in DS1's class spells it - there's no hope for the poor child :shakeshead:

I think it was very innovative in the hippy 60's.

Sorrell sounds like sorrow to me.

And the nickname for Sorrell would bey Sorry hmm?
