Bloom, no. Blossom, perhaps?

MacMac123 Sun 14-Oct-12 15:45:45

Blossom is a nice name.
(bloom is silly yes)

VerityClinch Sun 14-Oct-12 15:46:55

My friend's surname is Bloom. If she called her DD Bloom I would certainly PMSL.

LilyCocoplatt Sun 14-Oct-12 16:35:08

Yep it is silly, makes me think of Mr Bloom.

HolyAutumnGoldBatman Sun 14-Oct-12 18:19:52

no, it's not a girls name. It's a word, but not a name.

JennaLemon Sun 14-Oct-12 18:34:51

I'd be afraid it could be a sanitary towel or an air freshener or a fabric softener one day. It really has that vibe about it.

Too surnamey.

Makes me think of "algal bloom" which is where algae grow all over a river and make it look green and sludgy.

DontmindifIdo Sun 14-Oct-12 18:41:23

makes me think of Mr Bloom from Cbeebies.

squoosh Sun 14-Oct-12 18:45:18

Bloom? Awful, it sounds very flabby.

Name of a character in winx club (cartoon aimed at 6yr old girls)

Don't do it!

wannabedomesticgoddess Sun 14-Oct-12 19:32:36

Judy Blooms Blubber was the first thing to come to mind hmm

Blossom is nice though.

PickledFanjoCat Sun 14-Oct-12 19:32:43

Totally silly as a sausage.

BigWitchLegsInWailyTights Sun 14-Oct-12 19:37:26

Bloomin Heck.

ArielThePiraticalMermaid Sun 14-Oct-12 19:38:27

Oh please don't.

Gugglebum Sun 14-Oct-12 20:21:30

I'd say if you're in love with it, put it in the middle spot. I can't see it working as a first name...

Not just ridiculous... Social Services ridiculous.
