I always thought it was a boys name, as in Mr Darcey, but the only ones I know are both girls. I quite like it still, guess you'll often be asked if you like ballet. I wonder what siblings would be with a name like Darci/Darcey?

Darcy is god awful (so you'll say 'that's not what I was looking for' to me too... grin)

It's okay, but agree it will date.

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

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

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

I love it :-)

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.

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

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

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

Missed the update.

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

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.

I Dont like Darcy sorry.

GW297 Sat 26-Jan-13 11:53:55

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

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

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 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.

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.

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

MidnightMasquerader Fri 25-Jan-13 08:36:18

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.

Darcy Jayne is lovely.

PuggyMum Thu 24-Jan-13 22:51:26

And an extra to! I give up!!

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

Crikey what's wrong with me to tonight? That was a rogue 'in' in that post!!

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

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

ohmygoshtake2yay Thu 24-Jan-13 22:48:57
