I'm quite partial to it it, especially for a dark girl. Very glamorous, animalistic but a tad Dallas. Alex James has a dd named Sable 'parently.

Hmm, for it sounds a bit too much like a Gladiator name a la Jet or Panther. Also makes me think of furs which some might not like.

Marilyn Monroe singing that song pops into my head! I quite like it, but not 100% sure!

Agree with the gladiator connotations. Also think it could lead to teasing at school i.e. sable - disabled?

You do know what a sable is? It's just a posh weasel!

Was there a Sable Colby? I just think coat.

It's a bit animal-coaty and paintbrushy.

Um, no. 80's shoulder pads, bitches, soap operas. Definately not.

Yes, Dr Seuss, I do. Sweet, aren't they grin. Still like the name despite pornstar/ paintbrushy connotations.

Has fur and paintbrush connotations for me too. And you have to think about what if she grows up to not suit the name. She would have to be very glamorous to fit that one.

Sorry, I think it's horrible (was a fan of Dynasty/the Colbys). It sounds like the sort of name that someone might adopt to make it appear that they were gamorous, so yes sex industry or bad bond movie character perhaps.

I think coat. People might throw red paint on her.

Anything Alex James does do the opposite. That's my mantra. His judgement is shot.
