What do you think of the name Lushe (silent e) as my baby daughter's name? Plenty of people have the surname Lush so why not have it as a first name? I already have a daughter called Harlowe which caused uproar with the family but has been received well in nursery but I need something just as unusual for my new arrival due in January. This is my first post so please be nice to me...

I would always suggest going into a supermarket and practise shouting the name out loud whilst a friend watches others reactions. Some of these names might go well in the Coldplay household, but in the real world.
There is a really good Seinfeld episode where they are trying to name a child, 'Soda' etc.

I knew a little girl called Keva (pronounced Cavah) always thought it was lovely.

I think the poster Lushe is winding you up!

Baby due this month. I don't think adding to it is that ridiculous.

It has to be Clarissa, surely?

Not keen, personally.

Struggling as I like old fashioned names !!

I think you have to do the prime minister test though- could there be a pm Lushe ( I know Barrack has scuppered this test though!!)

its not a name i would choose. i used to teach a little girl called Bliss? what do u think of that? again not for me but she was a gorgeous little thing.

It's a horrendous name! Don't do it! I'm from Northern Ireland and over here we also use the term 'lush' to refer to someone who likes a drink!!

Hi everyone, just thought I would update u all, our baby girl was born on New Year's Eve, weighing 7lb 1oz and we named her Lilah (pronounced Lie-lah), she is beautiful and I think her name is beautiful too. I'm sure there will be a few of u who do not like it but I just thought I would let u all know that we didn't choose Lushe and never will. Thanks for all your help in the end.
