Very nice, and I've never met one.

MeantToStopAtTwo Sun 12-Jun-11 17:04:54

Really don't like it. Sorry. It just hasn't got an attractive sound to it.

Inspired by newsreader Romilly Weeks... LOL

Gorgeous. It's unusual but not ridiculous. And it's a place in the champagne region of France.

But my lovely four month old makes me biased.

Would have def been on my list but doesn't go with our surname, love it

DegreesCelcius Sun 12-Jun-11 19:52:27

Absolutely love it. Has always been one of my favourites.

SloganLogan Sun 12-Jun-11 20:01:13

Not keen, sorry.

My friend lives in Romiley and I've always thought it would be a nice name.

itsohsoquiet Sun 12-Jun-11 22:30:52

How about Romany?

MelinaM Sun 12-Jun-11 22:32:01

I love itsmile

Lovely classy name.

Pixieonthemoor Mon 13-Jun-11 11:38:56

LOVE it! It was on my short list but my dh wasnt so keen. I think its gorgeous!

I love this name and am currently working on dh to have this for our dd due in September. I worked with a lovely girl called Romilly years ago who would now be in her early 30s.

I'm hoping for Romilly Rose (middle name selected years ago after a relative).

topazmcgonagall Tue 14-Jun-11 02:43:50

I think I like it

5DollarShake Tue 14-Jun-11 02:59:22

I actually really like it. Would be unlikely to use it myself, but do still like it. smile

randomimposter Tue 14-Jun-11 11:19:31

Really like it and Romy is also lovely as a NN.

nervatious Tue 14-Jun-11 13:21:50

I know a boy called this, it really suits him

IslaValargeone Tue 14-Jun-11 13:22:44

Love it.

sophiesmummie Tue 14-Jun-11 13:53:18

I like it although I've never met one. So seems a nice and underused name.

rachel1970 Tue 14-Jun-11 14:19:37

I like it and Romy is a cute nickname imo.

thereisalightanditnevergoesout Tue 14-Jun-11 17:38:50

I have one - she'll be six next week. I love it.

People do mishear it though - probably more because it is unusual than because it actually sounds like 'Romany/Bromley/Wobbly'

Ours doesn't have a nickname, really. Inspired by my friend's sister (in her 30s) who herself was named after/inspired by the son (because, pre-war it was pretty much a boy's name) of Welsh painter Augustus John.

Have you seen this website?

Strangely, I know of at least 5 (not counting my own) hmm - so not sure if that means it's due a surge (even a small one) in popularity.

and then I stumbled across these...
