Sorry for having two threads on the go.

DH and i have actually managed to pull the same face: 'hmm, maybe' about this name.

It's as close as we've got to agreeing on something!

We like Tara but it rhymes directly with my name. That would be a bit twee ...

So ... Tarina - thoughts please?

(Names we cant agree on:
me: Darcy, Tabitha + Harriett.
DH: Francesca)

I like Marina a lot, I also like Carina even thought there is/was a Toyota model of that name.

Tarina sounds like a name Enid Blyton would give a princess who joins the Upper Fourth at Mallory Towers. Princess Tarina of Maldarovia.

I like Tarina! Carina even better.

Or Serena? Selena? Taryn? Random but sprung to mind!

How about Triona, pronounced Tree-na. Often short for Caitriona. Although I would prefer Caitriona. Great name

Marina is lovelysmile

Onesleeptillwembley Sun 21-Jul-13 22:02:38

smile Marina is beautiful. I know two - both lovely as well.

fluffyraggies Sun 21-Jul-13 22:00:39

Oh no! Akiss!

Loads of people have loved Marina! I was a bit stung by some of the Darcy haters at first. But, y'know, every single name will have some grotty connection if you think long enough about it. If someone told me their little girl was called Marina i would honestly think ''what a lovely and unusual name''

onesleep - It's ok. It's late and i'm hormonal smile

No, Giselle is lovely. I meant tsarina. In between reading, getting a drink and posting the thread has moved on a lot.

AKissIsNotAContract Sun 21-Jul-13 21:45:51

That's the last time I suggest names on these threads. My favourite name has now been rubbished sad

fluffyraggies Sun 21-Jul-13 21:26:03

Onesleep - what, Giselle? Not made up.

Or have you not read the thread perhaps hmm

RoadToTuapeka Sun 21-Jul-13 21:18:35

I have met one Marina, who is lovely, but I take the name too literally and always think of an actual marina with lots of boats tied up, so I don't like it as a name.

Onesleeptillwembley Sun 21-Jul-13 21:16:00

Made up and ridiculous. But hey, if you want to condemn her to a lifetime is spelling it and raised eyebrows, go right ahead.

fluffyraggies Sun 21-Jul-13 21:10:08

suzy - really LOL'd.

It was Marina. And yeah, we only had one telly and my mum and dad used to watch it smile

Littlecherublegs Sun 21-Jul-13 21:08:46

Oh crossed posts again!!!

fluffyraggies am happy to help!! smile

SuzySheepSmellsNice Sun 21-Jul-13 21:07:51

I have a beautiful friend called Varenka, which I thought was a very unusual name, and very pretty.

Littlecherublegs Sun 21-Jul-13 21:06:58

Well puppymonkey it seems like OP needs some additional name suggestions as not only has she changed her mind and mentioned a few different names on this thread, she has another name thread going too!

Seems like she needs & wants all the help she can get so I was just trying to be helpful!! smile

fluffyraggies Sun 21-Jul-13 21:06:10

little these are lovely names smile

puppy grin - ahh but it can be an inspiration. I just love opinions.

Schmaltzing - just been on that thread - Giselle! Lovely - and <whispers> DH and i just might be in agreement on this!
