I find it very hard / harsh.

Prefer Ingrid.

JarethTheGoblinKing Sun 12-Jun-11 03:39:11

Oh, I hate Ingrid, Don't know why.

Astrid has always been a favourite (also love A names, so that helps)
I used to be called Star... maybe that's part of it?

I like it - it's quite Swedish though so might be odd if you have no connection

EldonAve Sun 12-Jun-11 07:37:57

I love it

Love it. Classy name.

I've only known one Astrid and she was Chinese/White British heritage and it suits her well so not being Scandinavian wouldn't be a problem. Go for it it's a lovely name

I love it too. My best friend at primary school, who was British-German, was called Astrid - she used to get called Asterix of course...

I think that's really cute.

MelinaM Sun 12-Jun-11 11:57:37

No, it is very harsh sounding ...and reminds me of Vauxhall Astragrin

I love it.

I think names ending in "rid" sound harsh. Ingrid, Astrid etc. They sound softer when spoken by a Scandinavian, but don't go well into English.

Love it, makes me think of Fringe!

I find it very harsh and very un-feminine. Yes, it seems to be the 'rid' ending.

I like it and for some reason much prefer it to Ingrid. If you love it then use it, don't worry about what anybody else thinks.
