What do you think? I'm dreaming up names for a future dd!!! grin we have a ds called Eli.

Minicreamegg Fri 07-Feb-14 14:26:00

No! just no hmm

I love the name Astrid and Clementine is ok.

Yet, somehow, the two together made my mind immediately think 'household product'. The combination sounds like something to clean the bathroom.

Sorry OP! grin I do like the two separately.

Ooh I love it! Would only use it with a fairly short surname though as it'd be a bit of a mouthful otherwise

Astrid - Yes

Clementine - Yes

Astrid Clementine - No

Sounds a bit like a cleaning fluid. Nice names separately, but a bit much together.

X post Hyva smile

Hmm actually I was thinking about it more and the name that sounds strongest in my mind is the Clementine.....so maybe I wouldn't have that combination as it detracts from the Astrid , which is lovely

DitsyDonkey Fri 07-Feb-14 14:28:49

Well the middle name is negotiable......trust me I have many MANY other options [obsessed emoticon]

HyvaPaiva Fri 07-Feb-14 14:29:22

Great minds Horror smile

Agree with the above - both beautiful names, I nearly used Astrid myself - but just too much together!

DitsyDonkey Fri 07-Feb-14 14:32:08

Astrid Xanthe
Astrid Seraphina
Astrid Penelope
Astrid Juniper
Astrid Tessa
Astrid Rose
Astrid Violet
Astrid Florence
Astrid Fleur

I will stop now blush

Two of my favourite girls' names so it's a big YES from me!

IsabellaRockerfeller Fri 07-Feb-14 14:33:58

Astrid is a fantastic name.

Clementine with Astrid is just too much.

Christelle2207 Fri 07-Feb-14 14:35:04

Agree- like both but dont think they fit very well. I would use a classic 1/2 syllable name after astrid eg Clare, Mary

Hmmm yes, I can see what the other posters mean actually. Astrid is lovely, in my opinion, and Clementine is pleasant enough, but for me, they just don't quite work together.

waterlego Fri 07-Feb-14 14:39:48

From your later post, I would avoid the long and/or more 'flowery' ones and go for one of the simpler ones...Rose or Tessa for example. PPs suggestions of Clare or Mary also very nice with Astrid.

BlueStarsAtNight Fri 07-Feb-14 16:42:58

I actually really like Astrid Florence smile

HuiledOlive Fri 07-Feb-14 16:44:36

I love it!

KatherinaMinola Fri 07-Feb-14 16:46:42

Both names are lovely. Together... I think it's a bit bonkers, but could work on the right child!

KatherinaMinola Fri 07-Feb-14 16:49:05

From your second list... You're mixing genres/derivations. You need a vaguely Germanic/Scandi name (or -sounding name) to go with Astrid, I think, rather than Greek/French etc.

KatherinaMinola Fri 07-Feb-14 16:49:43

Something like Astrid Hanne.

Lottystar Fri 07-Feb-14 17:40:14

Marie-Astrid sounds pretty, with a more French sounding "Marie" if you catch my drift. Astrid is a super pretty name smile

DitsyDonkey Fri 07-Feb-14 20:04:24

I think I'm starting to warm to Astrid Florence or Astrid Violet!

Dh likes it!

Ds is just after saying that sounds like asteroid god that's the worse name you ever came up with hmm
