jamieandthemagictorch- have just gone cold at the thought of how we just dodged that bullet ;-)
How did I not notice that? Can't even blame pregnancy hormones now...

The trouble with Marta is ... martyr

Sorry but I hate the name.

sydenhamhiller Sat 07-Sep-13 10:11:12

Afraid not keen. I did however want Marta for DC3 (sound of music anyone), as a version of Martha. But DH vetoed it. And Penelope. And most other names. It's amazing she has a name at all...
Good luck-- love the baby name stage!

It's a dated French name IMO with negative associations - mcutcheon and also the French national front - Martine Le Pen.

Much prettier girls names around.

I don't like it - a bit dated IMO.

I work with a Martine who is 51. She is fun, bubbly and a great person. The name really suits her. It's a name that will be suitable at all stages of life so go for it.

I don't like it.
V dated to me - almost like Tracey,Sharon

Martina is nicer

But there are names I much prefer

Mumblyboo Fri 06-Sep-13 22:41:49

Oh jesus no. That macutcheon woman is dreadful and it's is synonymous with her I'm afraid for me

Leeds2 Fri 06-Sep-13 22:28:47

Wouldn't be for me.

I know of one Martine who is 10 now. Go for it, if you really like it, but be prepared for lots of, "Oh that's different! "

squoosh Fri 06-Sep-13 22:04:35

You say 'Martine'

I say 'McCutcheon'

PixelAteMyFace Fri 06-Sep-13 21:55:16

All the Martines I know are in their late fifties/sixties, it just sounds middle-aged to me, sorry!

I wouldn't like her to be nicknamed Tina.

Queenofthehill Fri 06-Sep-13 20:35:28

I love it too!

Frontdoorstep Fri 06-Sep-13 20:33:59

Why not go for Martina instead.

NickNacks Fri 06-Sep-13 20:19:48

I don't like it, I'm sorry.

Iamgoodbutnotanangel Fri 06-Sep-13 20:16:09

What's the general opinion on the name Martine? I love it but my husband just keeps saying Martin every time I mention it!
