Idle thought: Solange?

I've bothered this board endlessly, and I think that (for now) I've settled on my name.

But last night (3am-hormone-induced-madness strikes again) I thought: what about Solange?

Is it a nice name, or not?

(And this is inspired by what I think of as classic French, rather than Ms Knowles- while she is, I think, rather fab, I'm not up for naming my DD in her honour particularly. There would be a lot of leggy hot pant wearing to live up to, after all grin)

I think it's a lovely name, but the one I knew from school days hated standing out (an being nn'ed Sausage)

First thought was solange Knowles.

Still nice name though.

Does it rhyme with orange?

jkklpu Wed 10-Oct-12 09:38:14

I prefer Solenne and Segolene

It's a nice name but my very first thought is Solange Knowles!

You really need to say it with a French accent imho.

I think it looks like a group of letters that have been bundled together, really.

Just, no. Sorry.

Beyoncé's sister. That's all I can think of too!

I prefer Solène

Sounds like 'flange'. It's a no from me.

TurtlenamedMack Wed 10-Oct-12 20:22:15

No. Flange was my first thought. If it occurs to me, it will occur to every 13yr old boy she meets.

I do sometimes think to myself 'Mr and Mrs Knowles produced two talented and beautiful daughters, isn't it a shame that they had such terrible taste in names'.

Seriously. Beyoncé, Solange. Bad, baaaaad names.

NotChristmasCarol Wed 10-Oct-12 21:21:36

Sounds like the (K)no(wle)s have it.

Funnily enough, I met a Solenne today- that's nice, but I'm sticking with my current choice.

I hardly want to ask this, but what's a flange? <thick>

squoosh Wed 10-Oct-12 21:51:35

flange is slang for vagina

Ah. Right. Unfortunate. Thanks.

I must get out more.
