I'm thinking of adding Eartha to my list of girl options but would like to know other opinions/first impressions of this name? Also any other girl's names you think I might like (espec beginning with 'E")

Thanks :-)

If you told me you were prg with an 'Eartha' I probably would chuckle....just a little smile

No because of the rhyming slang

Sorry, Ursula is a great name is what I meant.

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 03-May-14 01:30:25

I second Ursula.

Eartha is hideous. Regardless of the amazingly talented namesake.

I know an Eartha and she is as lovely as her name. So I'd vote yes.

Fantastic name. So strong. And listen to some Eartha Kitt now!

Rhyming slang for shit round here. It would be like calling a baby Poo.

Eartha Kitt was a pretty cool woman actually. She had a really hard childhood but was a pretty big star until she blotted her copybook in the USA speaking out against the Vietnam war. She wsd called a sadistic nymphomanic by the CIA! You can't get better than that.

Ursula is the name you need, I reckon.

BethGoLightly Fri 02-May-14 19:08:43

It's awful, sorry.

What about Inara?

I like it!

I might spell it Ertha just because Eartha is a bit earthy.

Great sound to it.

Eartha is better than all those horrid old lady names.

I saw eartha kitt in an interview and she seemed really cool.

I like Estella too.

Also Ebony, Emer, Etaine, Elaine, Elena, Evan, Ever, Eleica.

My first thought was poo

SouthernShepherdess Fri 02-May-14 18:48:06

I don't like it personally, like someone else said it sounds quite ugly. My own opinion however..

ThatBloodyWoman Fri 02-May-14 18:41:15

Just seen that thread on active seashell - I hadn't seen it before.

I can't see the test thingy on my tablet screen though as its too small sad

CoreyTrevorLahey Fri 02-May-14 18:26:56

I like Eartha! Eartha Kitt is super cool.

Annora Carrot is only a problem if you're English wink

AvonCallingBarksdale Fri 02-May-14 18:22:43

Ooh, not Eartha. Really for the rhyming slang. Elena/Eleanor/Elsbeth/Elodie/Emma?

Very difficult to pronounce
