PuggyMum Thu 24-Jan-13 22:50:10

I like that... Jayne is a name that's in underused IMO.

PuggyMum Thu 24-Jan-13 22:51:10

There have been so many Darcy/Darcey/Darcie threads on here recently - I keep clicking on them to see how the discussion has developed, only to discover they're new threads.

So - if you don't mind mass popularity, then go for it.

thats funny because ive never met anyone called darcy from where i live. there may have been lots of threads but people use mumsnet all over the world. im sure there are lots of every name around the world.

thanks for that midnight but thats not what i was looking for

OK sorry, you didn't tell me the rules re what I was allowed to post and not allowed to. wink

You did, however, ask what we thought and so - having been invited to contribute - I did so.

I love Darcy, but know it as a boys name. Though it works well as a girls, and I am pregnant with DS2 and all my favourite names can be used for either gender.
Prefer Jayne as a middle name.

At risk of being scolded in a similar fashion, I agree with midnight. Far too many Darcys at mo. Since Darcey Bussell started on Strictly I think there will be a rash of little Darceys starting school in 4 years.

Also, I have an irrational hatred of surnames used as first names, especially for girls, and I see Darcy as being in the same category as Madison etc on that front.

How about Marcia? That's similar but much nicer (imho).

I am not keen, just the 'arsey' sound would make me worry re teasing. I know a D'Arcy!

I've taught a Darcey Grace. I like it.

boywalter Sat 26-Jan-13 12:23:44

I Dont like Darcy sorry.

HoratiaWinwood Sat 26-Jan-13 14:30:59

I know a lovely Darcy, but I don't like the name itself IYSWIM.

There are many lovelier middle names than Grace.

HoratiaWinwood Sat 26-Jan-13 14:32:05

Missed the update.

Using her grandmother's name as a middle name is much better!

Prefer Jayne to Grace. Not as common & has some meaning.

PenelopePisstop Sun 27-Jan-13 22:35:21

I think you might find Darcy will be the Kylie of it's age.
Or the Tracy

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Mon 28-Jan-13 11:19:00

Sweet name and if you love it go for it. Jayne would be a lovely nod to your mum.

SavoyCabbage Mon 28-Jan-13 11:21:22

Yes have it if you like it. I think it goes well with Jayne. I do think of it as a boys name.

mama2bebe Mon 28-Jan-13 14:04:34

I love it :-)

Wishfulmakeupping Mon 28-Jan-13 14:06:45

I like it but it's very popular and will date quickly

SilentMammoth Mon 28-Jan-13 16:36:24

It's okay, but agree it will date.
