I am in love with this name. I know it's the name of Peaches Geldof's son. Loved it the first time I heard it.

Do you like it?

I think it sounds very feminine, and just a bit poncy. Sorry.

I like it but I thought it was a girls name initially.

I love it, but it is probably too out there to use unless you are the child of a rock star.

Middle name perhaps? BIG fan of kooky middle names.

Nice but I assumed it was a girls name as it ends in a.

Yeah, bit poncey for me.

I think it sounds like a girl's name too.

Having said that, I love the name Etienne but DH refused that on the basis that it sounded too feminine sad

Sounds like a girls name. Plus that kid will get called 'Ass' or 'Star'. Both suck.

Lovely for a girl not sure for a boy

Not sure how it's pronounced, is the emphasis on the middle syllable?

frutilla Thu 11-Apr-13 15:37:36

And is it as-sta-la or as-stah-la?

It's ass (as in donkey, not arse) - star - ler. Emphasis on star.
