if its a girl then what would be a girly form of this name?

YokoUhOh Thu 08-Nov-12 20:12:07

Regina (Mean Girls springs immediately to mind!)

YokoUhOh Thu 08-Nov-12 20:16:20

(Ginny as a nickname?)

Please don't call your child Reginald. Or Regina (if you're in the UK, ok if you're in America).

YDdraigGoch Thu 08-Nov-12 21:07:04

Regina Vagina!!!

why not? smile

Regina can be shortened to Jeannie instead of Ginny

I'm sorry, but grin at a baby called Reginald.

HolyBrrrrrrBatman Thu 08-Nov-12 21:34:26

because it's really awful.

and because Regina rhymes with vagina (in England at least, in America they say Re-geee-na so it's ok).

Are you completely SURE about Reginald OP?

NorksAreMessy Thu 08-Nov-12 21:36:38

In which case Maude, Doreen or Pauline might fit the bill

My Gandad was called Reginald.

He was lovelysmile

I thought Regina was pronounced reg-ee-na? I wouldn't have thought it rhymed with vagina.

Anyway OP, I don't think it's too bad. I've seen Virginia suggested on here quite frequently and, in terms of teasing, I think that's much worse.

Reginald? These old people names have been taken too far. I'm expecting to see polls about Cedric and Maurice next.

ivykaty44 Thu 08-Nov-12 21:45:45

I don't see how it rhymes

picnicbasketcase Thu 08-Nov-12 21:47:56

Regina as in queen would be 'reg-eye-na' but as a person's name it's usually 'reg-ee-na' I think.

wigglesrock Thu 08-Nov-12 21:50:45

I went to school with a Regina (Re-geen-a), people were not kind to the name.

ivykaty44 Thu 08-Nov-12 21:51:02

the Regina I know says her name is reg -ee-na

I think this is why I am having trouble making the name rhyme rather than the head of states title grin

YDdraigGoch Thu 08-Nov-12 22:07:30

I knew a Regina, and her name rhymed with vagina. She was foreign though. Never thought of pronouncing it Reg-ee-na.

dafi Thu 08-Nov-12 22:23:48

confused hahaha don't want vagina I'll think of something else

1500mmania Thu 08-Nov-12 23:15:40

I love Reginald - it's cute. If you like it take no notice of the critics above.

poppydaisy Fri 09-Nov-12 10:45:29

I know a Regina who pronounces her name Re-geena. I like it. Re-gy-na sounds American, I don't like it.

And for a boy Reggie is cute. Reginald is a great underused name imo.

SoupDragon Fri 09-Nov-12 11:00:26

Reginald... fine (well, I hate it but only because it's not to my taste at all! grin)
Regina - awful. I though immediately of Regina Vagina.

A friend of ours has a baby Reginald. I think its lovely. Love Nolly or Regie as nn.
