For a girl. Thoughts?

I like it but would you end up with Sherry for short. Some may think a bit ' American' but I would go with it. Do you have a shortlist or mainly going with Sheridan?

I like it

Too surnamey for me, sorry.

bruffin Tue 06-Sep-11 22:32:48

Sorry but I always think of Hyacynth Bucket when I hear Sheridan. It was the name of her son.

It's a surname and doesn't sound feminine at all.

Makes me think of Tommy. It also sounds to me like a footballer's surname for some reason.

I think it's a boy's name - like bruffin I think, because of Hyacinth Bucket. So no, I wouldn't choose it for a girl.

I do think of Hyacinth Bucket but I also think of Sheridan Smith (Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps, Legally Blonde in the West End).

I know the bedlinen! smile

I also know a male Sheridan, I think it's a fabulous name, and I quite like it for a girl too.

I was at school with a Sheridan many years ago, she was definitely a girl. I quite like the name, but it will probably end up being shortened to `Sherry` or `Danny`.

Well my favorite drink is Sheridan's at christmas!

I did go and see Legally Blonde a few weeks, Sheridan Smith was very good, but to be honest her name didn't register with me. DD was too busy fangirling over Lee Mead.

Like it, I think
