Any thoughts/associations? Please and thank you. DH loves it, but I think it's thanks to Una from The Saturdays!
Middle name would be Primrose, which I know isn't to everyone's taste but we love it.
Thanks x

Showing your age ladies! smile

Any more thoughts anyone...?

I like it, Just looked it up on the 2009 rankings and both Una and Oona were reeeaaally low down, a total of 26 girls named Una/Oona!

I think the ooooo sound makes it kinda cute but I think it sounds good on a grown up as well, a name that would grow with her. Hmmm, might have to think about this one!

Una Primrose, yes, do it!

Lovely name that isn't already used by thousands others. Great choice.

Stubbs confused

Just said this name over in my head and started singing "Ooh na na, what's my name", al la Rihanna! Not that that's a massive problem!

Thank you Popsicle. Really nice message. And Popsicle is our DS's nn! smile x

missrabbitsshoeshop Mon 06-Jun-11 21:49:19

Thanks Hula smile

I quite like ooh na na! And DH will LOVE that! (Massive Rihanna fan he is!) x

popsicle1984 Mon 06-Jun-11 21:51:47

Good, good! I bet I'm gonna have that song in my head all day tomorrow! I like it though so I'll forgive you! Actually seeing her in concert in September!

My best friend at school was Oona. Love that name. Suits her as an adult too - very stylish and sophisticated (or maybe that's just her grin)

missrabbitsshoeshop Mon 06-Jun-11 22:03:17

Sounds fab Pops! It is stuck in my head already!
MyCat I like that spelling, but surname is 4 letters starting with 'O'! Thanks.

Una is an Irish name. In Ireland it's considered a very very drab name, along the lines of Mildred or Gertrude. It used to be fairly common but now it's considered old fashioned. But here I suppose it is somewhat unusual so it works better smile

My dh has a financial assistant called Oonagh, who can't do sums. I also know an 18 year old Una, who was named after someone in the Faerie Queene.

Una is one of my favourite names and Primrose is lovely,

Have only met one Una, and she was tall blonde and drop dead gorgeous, and just to top it off really nice so couldn't even hate her!

Una Primrose sounds great smile

Thank you everyone. It is growing on me more and more!

I know an Irish child called Una. Always thought it was lovely.

A friend of mine called her daughter Ula which I like. Also know an Oonagh

missrabbitsshoeshop Tue 07-Jun-11 11:32:34

Thanks, any more?!

PurveyorOfBaloney Tue 07-Jun-11 11:33:29

Not so keen on Una (Per Una anyone?). However I do like Ida, and even Uma

JanMorrow Tue 07-Jun-11 11:37:20

Loads of Unas from around my way (Ireland) so it's not unusual (excuse the pun) at all! Not my fave though I have to say!

emmanumber3 Tue 07-Jun-11 11:40:38

Another one who thought "as in Una Stubbs?" - sorry blush.

I don't like it I'm afraid but I do love Primrose as a middle name - very pretty grin.

franke Tue 07-Jun-11 11:43:02

Prefer Una to Oona.

Also thought of Una Stubbs, but nowt wrong with that smile

I like it.
