what do you think?
We already have a Ruby. Surname is short and begins with F

My dh wanted to name our Sadie, Lola but I wouldn't have it. The meaning is 'sorrows'. I know a cute & spunky little Lola but I'm not mad about the name.

We considered it for our dd2 (8mo) but I know 4 lola's under 1 year old.

2 have the same middle name.

I also know 2 dogs called Lola and that was enough to put me off tbh.

DaydreamDolly Sun 11-Sep-11 08:01:47

Ah. Yes that's rather put me off too. Kitty?

MummysLittleSunbeams Sun 11-Sep-11 08:50:21

I have a Kitty Violet! smile

Charlie and
Was a showgirl.

Kitty, so long as it's short for something. There will be times in any woman's life when she doesn't want to have a cutesy babyish name.

DaydreamDolly Sun 11-Sep-11 09:27:22

What could Kitty be short for? I know of an adult Kitty and I always thought it was a nice name.

meditrina Sun 11-Sep-11 09:40:26

Lovely - and I think children will think "Charlie and" rather than showgirl, or the Kinks!

meditrina Sun 11-Sep-11 09:41:51

Kitty is usually short for Katharine (or related name) or perhaps Christine (as on boys Kit's from Christopher).

I love both Lola and Kitty - I knew a Lola and she was a very bright, funny little girl so I have always had a soft spot for this name.

Kitty is also gorgeous - I would probably go for calling her Katherine with the nickname Kitty, so she would have the choice of reverting back from Kitty at a later stage should she want to.

Lola seems to be the new Ellie, I know of three: 2 x Lola Rose, and a Lola Grace ...I also know an Alexis Lola - Lexi-Lola, but that\s another storygrin

Do you like Lila /Lyla?

Kyrie Sun 11-Sep-11 14:12:50

I think Lola will date so badly, it is a very 'now' name. Dolores is the long version which I love which would give here more options / won't date.

Kitty is less faddish imo than Lola though i'd still put a longer name on the bc if it was me.

Cereal Sun 11-Sep-11 14:17:48

I don't really like Lola or Kitty, sorry.

Sandalwood Sun 11-Sep-11 14:19:39

LOL at Lola being a dogs name putting you off....but how about Kitty? grin

Purplebuns Sun 11-Sep-11 14:21:36

I know a Felicity who is Kitty, Felicity is a great name.

poppydaisy Sun 11-Sep-11 16:59:18

Really don't like Lola at all, I'm afraid.

DaydreamDolly Sun 11-Sep-11 18:34:57

Sandalwood good point well made!
melinam yes like Lila, that was on our list when we were expecting DD.
DH has veto'd Kitty. Why do they always do that?! angry

MelinaM Sun 11-Sep-11 21:43:34

^Perhaps he likes Katherine/Catharine ..which would of course become Kittywink

DaydreamDolly Sun 11-Sep-11 21:44:56

Sneaky.... I like it!

DaydreamDolly Sun 11-Sep-11 21:45:52

I won't be calling my child Sneaky tho - just in case anyone was wondering. That's a dogs name, of course. grin

WaftyCrank Sun 11-Sep-11 22:28:16

I have a Lola, she's 2.6. I don't know of any other Lola's where we live so I'm hoping she'll be the only one in her class. I wanted her to be Harriet and XH wouldn't have it but I wish I'd pushed for it. As much as I love Lola, I do think it might become dated or too popular.

She's a feisty, independant madam and usually gets called Lolly by all her know her.

Probably outed myself completely there but never mind smile
