Any real shockers?

noodlebum Fri 21-Feb-14 10:20:38

I like Ramona, Daphne and Alice for the girls, and Nathaniel, Robin and Felix for boys. Gloria is a name I haven't seen mentioned for a while!

Like Vivienne and Lydia. Love Alice. Hate Ramona, Joan and Margot.

Like all of the boys' names bar Felix (hate that, sorry). Love Robin, and love Jem as nn for Jeremy.

Margot, Alice, Daphne and Vivienne are beautiful and classy
Lydia and Marnie are ok
Gloria,Joan and Ramona are the shockers.

Felix is nice from the boys.

I love Gloria, Ramona and Joan! I like them all apart from Daphne.

Out of the boys, I think robin and Jeremy are a really weak names, whereas Arthur is a very strong name. I have a Felix so I'm biased towards that name overall but Arthur is a close second.

Love love love Marnie.

Quite like Nathaniel.

Interesting people's perceptions of names. Unlike, UriGeller, I think Arthur is an incredibly 'weak' name.

I have to admit I am leaning towards Gloria, Ramona and Joan! Looks like they're the controversial ones!

Arthur is the front runner on the boys list.

It's really hard isn't it?

Thanks, yes I really like Glo as a nickname. I think that's what is making me lean that way.

OneMoreThenNoMore Fri 21-Feb-14 11:07:37

I like Vivienne, Lydia, Ramona (love it), Alice; and Margot is ok.

I like all of the boys names but I like Nathaniel the least.

I'd say that Ramona, Alice, Arthur and Felix are my faves. smile

I don't like any of them (sorry!) but Joan and Jeremy are absolute horrors.
