Which do you prefer for a girl?

Wednesday Addams.

Yeah that's my first thought..,

I went to school with a Tuesday. I like the name, I think it's rather cool.

I like Wednesday....I have always had a girl crush on Wednesday Adams! I wanted to be her when I was younger blush

Wednesday's child is full of woe.

Either unless the child in question was born on neither day!

Why would you want a day of the week anyway, especially if you can't decide which one, so it's not for sentimental reasons? I can understand Nicole Kidman's Sunday Rose, as a) Sunday's child is "bonny and blithe and good and gay" (ie the best in the rhyme), and b) she is a crackers celebrity. But I have to say it seems odd for mortals.

Tuesday - my niece is called Ruby and Tuesday has become a bit of a family nickname for her. I like it.

I think they are both really odd names to give to a child, male or female. Having said that I know someone called September who is happy with their name, so what do I know.

Tuesday, I actually know two IRL so it seems less unusual to me!

I thought date names reflected the day they were born?
But what do I know ... confused
Actually, all the depictions in the rhyme are positive except Wednesday. And Wednesday's a cool name, so that makes up for it!

Not Wednesday, too negative. But I wouldn't use a weekday name unless the child was born on that day. Too weird otherwise. Like calling a baby Autumn if they're born in May. Just no.

Honestly? Both very silly 'names' in my opinion. Isn't there a restaurant in NYC called Ruby Tuesdays?

Can you imagine yourself called such a thing? It's too try hard and ridiculous for me. Apologies but you did ask...

Frikadellen Fri 26-Jul-13 12:34:57

I like Tuesday but not nuts on Wednesday

I will answer your question, rather than be rude:

Wednesday because of Wednesday Addams who is fab.

But both names are a bit too out there for my taste personally.

Pobblewhohasnotoes Fri 26-Jul-13 13:06:00

Neither, sorry. They aren't names. You did ask...

Tuesday is better than Wednesday though.

SupermansBigRedPants Fri 26-Jul-13 13:47:24

Eirher as long as it's born on the day. It's like seasons/months - understandable in the right season/month.

That's often been said, on here, about my name! Mine's not a day name, but is a similar level of unusual - uncommon but not rare.

Strangely, I can imagine myself called "such a thing", because it's my name! And you would have to be quite odd to consider a person too try-hard on account of their name.

OP, people tend to remember uncommon names - it's an advantage, unless you were planning on raising a criminal - and all it says about you, as parent, is that you have wider horizons than the bleating masses grin

Tuesday! Love it. DH would never allow it though :-(
