I like Sadie and Hope. Sadie Hope - lovely combination!

Mae is OK but prefer May spelling. Not keen on Ada, not sure it's due a comeback really.

MelinaM Wed 20-Jul-11 20:12:41

Like it, also like Hope, and May / Mai but not Maesmile

PipFEH Wed 20-Jul-11 20:23:40

I like Sadie.

I like Hope too.

Sadie is sweet; it sounds very American. Ada is pretty and underused.

Sadie is lovely. It was my grandmother's name smile

Bandwithering Thu 21-Jul-11 09:16:11

Sadie is lovely but I don't like Ada much. May is ok but a bit bland.

diddl Thu 21-Jul-11 10:27:31

Sadie sounds very scottish to me.

jomorgan Sun 24-Jul-11 21:14:33

Love Sadie and Hope! do u like Ava?

Olivetti Sun 24-Jul-11 21:17:12

I do love Sadie, but (and I'm really sorry to say this) to me it will always be associated with "Sexy Sadie", and some joker would probably sing this.....which obviously is not what you want for your child. I considered it for my DD because it is lovely, and ruled it out for that reason.

GwendolineMaryLacey Sun 24-Jul-11 22:00:18

What's sexy Sadie? I'm sometimes a Sadie and have never heard of that.

zippy539 Sun 24-Jul-11 22:02:04

Know a Sadie - lovely name. We're Scottish if that makes any difference - I always think of it as a Scottish name.

EdithWeston Sun 24-Jul-11 22:03:28

I've never heard of Sexy Sadie either.

I think it's a wonderful name, and to me is associated with Aunt Sadie from the Nancy Mitford books.

diddl Mon 25-Jul-11 08:12:07

Also never heard of "Sexy Sadie"

chandellina Mon 25-Jul-11 09:02:36

Sexy Sadie is a song by the Beatles.

I love the name and would definitely put it on my list.

chandellina Mon 25-Jul-11 09:06:42

here are the lyrics, i think it's very sweet and can think of worse things to be associated with my name

Sexy Sadie what have you done
You made a fool of everyone
You made a fool of everyone
Sexy Sadie, ooh, what have you done

Sexy Sadie you broke the rules
You laid it down for all to see
You laid it down for all to see
Sexy Sadie, ooh, you broke the rules

One sunny day the world was waiting for a lover
She came along to turn on everyone
Sexy Sadie the greatest of them all

Sexy Sadie how did you know
The world was waiting just for you
The world was waiting just for you
Sexy Sadie, ooh, how did you know

Sexy Sadie you'll get yours yet
However big you think you are
However big you think you are
Sexy Sadie, ooh, you'll get yours yet

We gave her everything we owned
just to sit at her table
Just a smile would lighten everything
Sexy Sadie she's the latest
and the greatest of them all

Ha, She made a fool of everyone
Sexy Sadie
Ha, However big you think you are

vividgingerchilli Mon 25-Jul-11 09:12:24

I love it

Olivetti Mon 25-Jul-11 11:17:21

It is indeed a lovely name, and a great song (can't believe people have never heard of it!)....just sayin' how I felt, because I'd love it for a DD as well.
