It's one of those names I think are ok but I wouldn't ever use!
Sorry. Are there any others you've thought of?

Not keen on Melody

Renaissance227 Thu 11-Aug-11 12:15:46

I find girl's names much easier than boy's names!
I like Lillian but prefer Lily.

What kind of girl's name are you looking for?

Rhubarbgarden Thu 11-Aug-11 13:29:15

I think Melody is a horrible name. Sorry.

MelinaM Thu 11-Aug-11 15:19:47

It's okay, but I wouldn't use it myself, I abhor the nn Mel!!

Ephiny Thu 11-Aug-11 15:28:13

I like Melody, think it goes nicely with Chloe as well. It's one of those that really divides opinions though, lots of people seem to hate it! Lillian is OK.

What about Melanie - rarely hear that one these days! Leonie or Leila?

Does your DP have any ideas for names?

scarlettlips Thu 11-Aug-11 15:30:49

I'm not so keen on many I's, O's with a Chloe too

Chloe and Jessica (imo) sounds lovely.

What other names do you like?

Ktay Thu 11-Aug-11 15:31:11

I associate Melody with that recent Apprentice contestant who was not the most sympathetic of individuals. Don't know whether many others would make the same link though.

birdofthenorth Thu 11-Aug-11 15:33:23

I think Melody is lovely. Even though it reminds me of Care Bears for some reason!!

Ephiny Thu 11-Aug-11 15:39:39

Me too Ktay - but I'm sure she'll be long forgotten by the time the OPs daughter is old enough to care!

Renaissance227 Thu 11-Aug-11 15:43:14

I was an avid Apprentice viewer and totally obsessed with the show but didn't associate Melody with the one on the programme until you just said it now. She's already long gone!

Continuum Thu 11-Aug-11 16:22:56

Decided I loved it after the season closer of Dr Who!! The only downside is possibly nickname of Mel!

MackerelOfFact Thu 11-Aug-11 16:46:14

I only know two Melodys and one of those has a sister called Chloe!

I'm not mad on the name, although it really suits the older Melody (adult) but not the younger one (baby).

Elodie however is lovely IMO.

GirlWithALlamaTattoo Thu 11-Aug-11 20:18:58

I know a Melodie with a sister called Chloe! I like the "ie" spelling better. Pretty name either way, though.

meditrina Thu 11-Aug-11 20:22:15

I doubt this will matter in the long run, but right now a lot of people will assume you're Doctor Who fans. Would you mind that?

seeksnewnamewithgsoh Thu 11-Aug-11 20:23:48

I don't like it, but only because of the annoying girl who played Melody in The Queen's Nose tv adaptation when I was little <shows age> That actress ruined the book for me as well. And clearly I never got over it blush

Love Lillian though.

InstantAtom Thu 11-Aug-11 20:48:17

I like it smile

Other suggestions... Miranda, Miriam, Melanie, Melissa, Meredith, Marianne, Maria, Mary, Marina, Marla

InstantAtom Thu 11-Aug-11 20:48:29

Or how about Elodie?

BibiBelle Thu 11-Aug-11 20:52:51

nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo my mum threatened to callme that & 'm forever grateful she didn't


mskatemc Fri 12-Aug-11 01:22:33

I know a Melody, she's gorgeous and a singer/musician to boot - I guess it could be a name you have to live up to a bit but it only has good connotations for me.

SaffronCake Sat 13-Aug-11 13:35:45

Melody and Chloe goes well. Lillian less so but it's very nice.

mistressploppy Sat 13-Aug-11 13:38:53

I think it's lovely smile but that might be because I used to work with a lovely nurse called Melody. She must have been about 50. She was so pretty, kind, gentle and graceful <floats off in memory cloud>

Sorry - don't like it sad
