Hiya, this is hyperthetical at the moment - just starting TTC DC2.
Went to Willows farm today & thought that Willow would make a really pretty girls name.
What are your thoughts?

Pink has a baby called Williow, and if the person is chubby, it will be an unfortunate name, IMO.

I agree with Lynette. I am short and roundish therefore wouldn't call my daughter Willow in case she inherited my body shape!

I love that name it was on my list for a DD when I had DS

I like it! Could never use it myself though as I have a William smile

smile it's a lovely name, I'm using it for my LO when she arrives in about 7 weeks time.

Love the name, it was on my short list before finding out we are having a boy

I know three Willows atm - all under 5 so it is growing in popularity.

Listen to Joan Armitrading's song Willow and then decide.

Quite surprised how many like it, it's one of those names I like but not sure of id be brave enough to use it.

I have a lovely golden retriever called Willow. People do love it and it doesn't grow old. Don't think it would work if your other kids have 'ordinary' names though.

I know three Willows, 2 girls and a boy. The boy does raise eyebrows tbh but it seems quite mainstream now for girls.

I love it but would not use it as I'm short & dumpy & thought DD might be the same shape as me. Same reason I would not use Finn for my son.
