This is purely hypothetical as I'm not even pregnant yet!

But is Autumn for a girl awful? I think it's really pretty, DH is a bit dubious. It is also my favourite season.

I want to like it because I like the leaves, and I Summer as a name, and Autumn is a bit different without being too unusual. But the sound of it Aw Tumm. no. Sorry. I'm dubious too.

I don't think it's one I'd use but if it's good enough for the Queen's granddaughter-in-law... I don't think I'm quirky enough to pull it off but I really like it.

I know of a baby born last month called Autumn. I wasn't keen at first, but I think now it's grown on me. I like it!

CheungFun Tue 16-Oct-12 10:33:54

I probably wouldn't use it myself as DH would never agree, but it is a nice name IMO (as long as the baby was born in the autumn months)!

I love it. It's cool but sounds quite serious (unlike summer). A bit quirky but not mental.

I love it though I think you definitely need to be born in Sept / Oct / Nov - I would have used it for DD but she is a summer baby.

my sisters called autumn and she was born in Feb ! I love it however she hated it at school easy target

DebK2012 Tue 16-Oct-12 18:48:13

Autumn is my favourite season so why not for a name (people like April!)

MolotovBomb Tue 16-Oct-12 19:28:37

Autumn, January, Summer, April, Winter are all beautiful, but I think that the baby needs to be born to the correlating month/season.

DebK2012 Tue 16-Oct-12 19:31:24

Yeah, but I don't like Winter that's just made up! hmm

MJandherdog Tue 16-Oct-12 19:33:25

I like it.

As an aside my hairdresser was called Tuesday and when I asked if she was born on a Tues she said "no, Wednesday"...should have guessed really!

I know an Autumn. I used to think it was a bit hmm but I have known her for a long while now.

Mum and dad are fairly arty, wacky dressers etc so it fits with them. Can't imagine them calling their child Emily.

I do think yr child needs to be born in Sept-Oct to carry it off tho!

DebK2012 Tue 16-Oct-12 19:37:28

November as well!!!

PrinceRogersNelson Tue 16-Oct-12 19:43:27

I love it.

Clary Tue 16-Oct-12 19:49:54

I always think November is winter but maybe that's because I live in the frozen north! grin

JennaLemon Tue 16-Oct-12 19:52:34

I think Saturday and Thursday are the only days of the week that wouldn't work as names. not that i'd pick the other days myself, not my style, but the other days work as names imo.

JennaLemon Tue 16-Oct-12 19:53:22

Winter is November to March!

DizzyPurple Tue 16-Oct-12 19:57:47

I had a friend at primary school called Autumn. I think its pretty but unusual in a good way. I remember thinking as a child that it was weird though! Dont really like the name Summer as it goes.

BikeRunSki Tue 16-Oct-12 20:06:52

Only if the child is born in the autumn. The inly Autumn I know was born in March and her name is a bit daft I think!

pictish Tue 16-Oct-12 20:07:36

Really like it!!

Autumnalis Tue 16-Oct-12 20:13:43

I don't like it as it doesn't sound nice for a name. Otter.

eBook Tue 16-Oct-12 20:20:25

I quite like it.

wigglesrock Tue 16-Oct-12 20:35:44

My daughter goes to school with an Autumn and its lovely when you hear it said out loud. I've heard quite a few other parents and teachers comment on how nice it is.

AgathaTrunchbull Tue 16-Oct-12 21:34:18

It's a pleasant sounding name. Agree with everyone above that it'd only work if the bearer were born in autumn. I do quite like Winter, but it sounds more like a boy's name.
