I'm interested to hear your thoughts on Blythe. I'm surprised I haven't seen it more. Have you got a little Blythe or do you know any? I think it's quite lovely smile

I like it, it makes me think of Wordsworth's poem "To the Coockoo" which starts: "O blithe New-comer! I have heard, I hear thee and rejoice. "

I love it! Was on the shortlist if ds had been a dd. The only one I know of is the actress Blythe Danner (Gwyneth Paltrow's Mother).

I know a Blythe who's 3. It's not to my taste, but if you love it, use it!

It's a lovely name, but round here it would be pronounced 'Blyve'. That may or may not bother you!

It's my surname (no E though). When I was in primary school, it was often pronounced 'blyv,' blight,' or 'blind.' Love it anyway, though!

I'd prefer Elvira, as I'm another who would think Noel Coward.

Lovely. Makes me think of a charmed sort of 1920s life.

Love it. Go for it. Could be B (Bee) for short.

...However I just said it out loud and realised that it is said exactly like blaidd, which is Welsh for wolf!!!

I like it but couldn't use it as i live next to Blyth.
I used Romilly but theres Romilly Street in London.

My daughter's friend is called Blythe. Wasn't keen at first, because I like feminine names and I dont think it is particularly feminine. But it has grown on me and I have to say I do quite like it now. It does suit the little girl in question who I always end up calling Blythie.

Is it considered to be a boy's or girl's name? The only Blythe I know of is the eventer (male) from NZ, Blythe Tait, but the above examples are all female.
