Albertine?

Tell me honestly, is this just plain odd?

A little, maybe. But if you're eccentric enough to carry it off, why not?

tiredlady Mon 13-Jun-11 19:25:00

Yes.
It's odd.
But if you like it, do it.
I'd think you could get away with it more in, say, Islington than Wolverhampton though.
(no disrespect to the inhabitants of either, but you know..)

not good. Alberta?

Albertine immediately brings to my mind the lovely fragrant pink rambling rose of that name.

I prefer other "tine" names like Clementine, Christine, Justine, Leontine.

I like all the 'tine' names. I prefer them to girl's names ending in 'a' or 'ly'.

You should use it - maybe a bit eccentric? Not sure why but don't think that's a bad thing!

I like it too, also like Christine, Severine, Caroline.

I've not heard it much before but actually yes, I quite like it. Would be lovely to meet a little Albertine smile.

Lovely. Prefer it to Alberta (which is a county in Canada to me).

I don't like it - sounds kinda like a alcoholic drink, and also I just see Albert. If this is a girl, I much prefer Alberta.

Albertina?!

I don't like Albert so none of the feminine versions sound good to me personally

Have you been reading Proust?

I love it but then I would wouldn't I? wink

No, I've actually been watching John Wyndham's Chocky on YouTube.
