What do you all think?

I love it.


Only possible problem shortened to Nan or Nance.

Love it

Only1scoop Sun 08-Dec-13 19:12:05

Also only know 1.

I like it & if you have another DD you should call her Peggy!

auntiefable Sun 08-Dec-13 19:14:26

Love it too. Top of my list if my 21 week bump's a girl.

DevonFolk Sun 08-Dec-13 19:15:04

Love it. Would've used it had I had girls smile

It has come to my attention via one of my teen brothers friends - it is her name.

I don't know how it has bypassed the name obsessive I am for so long!

Love it. Can't use it due to an ex of my brothers being called nancy and utterly psychotic. But otherwise, I'd be keen.

I have a 10 month old Nancy. I still smile whenever I say it smile

Tapiocapearl Sun 08-Dec-13 22:30:34

Lovely. I also like betsy and Betty

I love it, even more so because it was my very dear grannys name (no longer with us sadly), although she was born Agnes but everyone called her Nancy?

Anyway, fab name!

Dislike nancy.

Mattissy Mon 09-Dec-13 07:07:05

Love it!

I only know one and she's in her 40's, it's unusual for our age group but she's always had really positive comments.

A very wise man once said to me 'there are not enough Nancy's in the world'. He was right, it's a great name.

Nice name. Makes me think of Swallows and Amazons too.

I love it - Nancy Mitford is a heroine of mine (she's not one of the nasty ones, a thoroughly good egg) but David Cameron called his daughter Nancy which puts me off a bit. Still love it though.

I'm sitting here, smiling at the photo on my desk of my grandmother and her four younger cousins/sister, taken in about 1912, all in white cotton dresses, standing in a row. Queenie, Fanny, Nancy, Betty and Nelly. Nancy is in the middle, aged about five. All the others have ribbons in their hair, Nancy's is sticking out all over the place, and she doesn't care one jot. She lived well into her nineties and was running keep fit classes for women twenty-five years her junior. Great name, great woman. and fantastic little girl.

Theonlyoneiknow Mon 09-Dec-13 22:43:44

My granny Nancy also lived into her nineties!

AnythingNotEverything Mon 09-Dec-13 22:50:28

Love it.

I don't like it at all.
