remus, it's all coming back to me! Eng Lit O level 1978, Kubla Kahn.

I was nearly called Dulcimer. Luckily my father vetoed it.

A damsel with a dulcimer in a vision I once saw...

Much better than some I have heard lately!

curlew Thu 29-Aug-13 09:08:02

Wicked Uncle Serpent....

I actually don't hate Dulcimer, and I can imagine it quite suiting the more solemn kind of little girl.

Littlemog - Dulcima is a name, but dulcimer IS an instrument - trust me, I'm a music graduate.

I like Dulcimer better than a lot of MN girl faves.

Better to be named after a musical instrument than a fish, right?

Oh, I don't know. Minnow is quite sweet, and there's Zander. And wasn't there a pathologist in 'Inspector Morse' called Grayling?

How about Sting Ray? grin

I quite like it actually! Not enough to use it, but I prefer it to some of the names I read about on here - Maude, Mabel, Pippa, Philippa etc.

littlemog Tue 27-Aug-13 13:50:16

Dulcima is a name not an instrument!

ShadowSummer Tue 27-Aug-13 13:42:54

curlew - I think DH would strongly veto Dulcimer if I suggested it as a name for DC2!

Although I do think that Dulcimer is a much nicer name than Halibut. Better to be named after a musical instrument than a fish, right?

Oh - and another friend was adamant his first child, if a boy, was going to be named Hal (OK so far), short for Halibut! Luckily his dw prevailed.

The 10th grandchild of one of my mum's friends was called Decima - poor thing!

littlemog Tue 27-Aug-13 13:32:09

Isn't the spelling wrong? I know that Dulcima is a Spanish (I think ) girls' name but I thought that a dulcimer was an instrument?

bluecheque4595 Tue 27-Aug-13 12:11:38

...singing of Mount Abora.

Dulcimer for a girl, Porlock for a boy. Or Kubla, of course.

curlew Tue 27-Aug-13 11:36:01

ShadowSummer- I have good cause to be worried.. i seriously considered Halcyon when pregnant with dd.....!

It's the hormones.

mouseymummy Tue 27-Aug-13 11:29:42

Still not as bad as Peppa... smile not pippa or any other derivative, just Peppa.

I can't say as I like dulcimer or dulce but everyone has a different view on baby names.

EnjoyEverySandwich Tue 27-Aug-13 11:24:52

There's a Dulcibella in my family tree. hmm

ShadowSummer Mon 26-Aug-13 23:59:21

I'm pregnant, OP.

Were you worried that I'd think "Oooh, must add Dulcimer to the shortlist for DC2"? wink


Could I revive within me...

Love it and love the man from Porlock story too.
