hi dh loves this name is it just too dated?

Deesus Mon 13-Jun-11 18:56:12

I think it's really pretty smile

Would she always be known as Sarah Jane? Or is Jane a middle name?

It is quite 70s, tbh.

Its absolutely 70s - I had a classmate called (daringly nonconformist, missing the 'h' grin) Sara Jane. The names really do go well together.

I suppose nowadays people would think it a tribute to Dr Who's old companion...

GrimmaTheNome Mon 13-Jun-11 19:00:21

Did that sound negative? It wasn't meant to - I like it!

I think it's lovely.

Sarah and Jane are both traditional, classic names and such names don't date.

Sarah is one of only two girl names that has been in the Top 100 in England & Wales ever since the lists stared being compiled in 1880. (The other name is Elizabeth). That is some staying power.

Yes very 70's but not in a horrible way.

70's/early 80's. love it!

The combination is quite 70s.

I wouldn't put the two together. I am a 1970's born Sarah Louise and in a class with quite a few other Sarah's, all of whom had either Louise or Jane as a middle name.

I really like the name Sarah and think that you don't get many children called Sarah today, so it is a good choice, but adding Jane as a middle name is boring.

I love Sarah but I wouldn't put Jane with it.

My dd is Sarah Elizabeth and loads of people have commented what a lovely name Sarah is and how it's kind of forgotten these days.

squeak2392 Wed 15-Jun-11 20:45:12

I like it.

GibberingGinger Wed 15-Jun-11 22:25:28

I love Sarah as a name. I'm not sure about Sarah-Jane. It's very 70's. If you are not planning on using it as a hyphenated name then Jane as a middle name is fine.

Is he a Dr Who fan...?

I know an adult Sarahjane. No hyphens. Just one name.

Chloejean Thu 06-Sep-18 01:45:43

Sarah Jane is lovely, I’m a big fan of double names so if you think it’s boting you could make her name Sarah-Jane _ and a fun middle name! Good luck smile

moredoll Thu 06-Sep-18 03:34:18

I like it.

ladycarlotta Thu 06-Sep-18 07:58:34

I really like it, if you're going to call her by both rather than just Sarah which I find quite dull. I know a Sarah-Jane in her late 20s and she's pretty cool.

ErrolTheDragon Thu 06-Sep-18 08:13:49

Zombie thread ... if the OP used this name, Sarah Jane will be about 7 by now. grin
(This popped up on my active convos, I posted under an old NN)

PetraRabbit Thu 06-Sep-18 10:42:25

I like it! Lots of positive experiences with nice Sarah-Janes. I think it's a really cute name for a little girl. It is technically 70s but actually has an almost 1950s retro feel to it.

PetraRabbit Thu 06-Sep-18 10:42:57

Oh no....zombie thread! Arghh

Perfectly fine, crashingly dull, in, as others have said, a brown lino, hessian wall, 1970s way.
