Just out of interest smile

It's growing on me.

Is it a real name?

Makes me think of amityville horror. Not keen, sorry.

Psammead Thu 06-Oct-11 10:42:34

Oh, Horror would be a great MN grin

There was a thread about this name a few weeks ago.

Immediately makes me think of Amityville horror too!

Psammead Thu 06-Oct-11 10:44:31

Maybe that's why it had a sort of familiar feel...

Spooky. grin

Jaws here too.

Sidge Thu 06-Oct-11 10:47:29

Jaws and Amityville Horror.

Not good associations!

LunaticIsOnTheGrass Thu 06-Oct-11 10:47:56

Amityville horror for me too.

Psammead Thu 06-Oct-11 10:49:13

See, this is why I like this board. I am crap at pop culture type references.

What a shame, it's quite pretty!

tummytickler Thu 06-Oct-11 11:06:07

Jaws and Amityville too!

It would be a nice name if there had never been an Amityville.

Definitely Amityville Horror and Amity Island in Jaws - so not good - sorry!

BatTasteFlump Thu 06-Oct-11 11:12:22

What about Verity? Sounds very similar but doesn't have any bad connotations (that I know of).

BuntyPenfold Thu 06-Oct-11 11:39:55

I loved Verity until someone on here said Ferrety.

MummysLittleSunbeams Thu 06-Oct-11 11:55:03

Ha! 'Twas me who asked the same question a few weeks ago. It got slated & the comments totally put me off the name! grin

Reminds me of Homity Pie... I'd expect her to be short, round and apple of cheek, slightly surprised looking, wearing a brown checked apron.

hmm at me today...

marjolaine Thu 06-Oct-11 13:20:38

The name is pretty and has a nice meaning but I think Amityville Horror too sorry. But maybe her peers won't have heard of it?

tummytickler Thu 06-Oct-11 14:54:13

Ooooh - I love Homity Pie - mmmmmmm!
I don't love the name Amity though.
