Hard to please OH thinks Stephanie/Steph is the way to go. Is it dated and a bit blah, or pretty and refreshing in the midst of a granny chic pandemic?

I quite like it. It's pretty, but I don't like 'Steph'.

No Stephanie is lovely - classic and every other little girl in her class will be called Ella, Ava or Sienna so she will be different lol xx

Thanks grin quite liking crapfatbanana haha she'd be the only one in her class!

snufflebum Mon 10-Nov-14 23:13:44

Thanks Brenda, it does have the not ending in 'a' or 'ie' in it's favour! hehe

I would have killed to have been called Stephanie when I was a kid. Still like it.

CormoranStrike Mon 10-Nov-14 23:21:43

Just to point out it does end in 'ie' grin

Smukogrig Mon 10-Nov-14 23:23:46

I like it.

Sophisticated and pleasingly uncommon I would say... Know a grownup Stefanie (a German Steffi) and some little ones too..☺

Floggingmolly Mon 10-Nov-14 23:25:03

How did you do that tiny little smilie, poppy??

SoonToBeSix Mon 10-Nov-14 23:26:48

How about Percephone to avoid Steph.

MuttonCadet Mon 10-Nov-14 23:36:35

I've never met a nice Stephanie sad

Tanfastic Mon 10-Nov-14 23:42:02

My sister is called Stephanie and she's lovely (slightly biased wink).

I like it op.

snufflebum Mon 10-Nov-14 23:52:09

Good point well made Cormoran! grin That's where the Steph shortening comes into play wink Thanks for the suggestion of Percephone, Soontobe, but OH not having any of it

ByeByeButterfly Mon 10-Nov-14 23:58:47

I am stefanie (no German heritage) in sure you'd like me mutton smile

SoonToBeSix Tue 11-Nov-14 00:02:42

Sorry op I don't have anything against Steph .I misread that it was another poster and not yourself that didn't like it.

snufflebum Tue 11-Nov-14 00:10:10

No need to apologise Soontobe! That's why I'm here, I'm unsure �� I'm genuinely grateful for the suggestion and your taking the time to post

snufflebum Tue 11-Nov-14 00:13:12

Hmm my attempt at emulating poppys smilie failed miserably. It shows nothing but diamond question mark thingies to highlight my fail grin

snufflebum Tue 11-Nov-14 00:15:34

Arrrrgh followed by an poppy apostrophe fail!

BackforGood Tue 11-Nov-14 00:16:55

I like it - everyone will know how to pronounce it, how to spell it, that she is a girl, and yet she will be likely to be the only one in her class / groups she joins. All qualifying criteria for me to choose a name smile

AmeliaPeabody Tue 11-Nov-14 00:17:43

I think it's quite nice. I would use it

TsukuruTazaki Tue 11-Nov-14 00:47:16

I find it very plain and dated - such an 80s name and I would be shocked to see a baby Stephanie. Nothing wrong with it as such, it's not offensive, but there are so many nicer names!

AmeliaPeabody Tue 11-Nov-14 00:53:45

It is very 80s. I immediately thought of Stephanie Beacham

GreenSpaghetti Tue 11-Nov-14 00:55:40

I like it, and love the shortening to Stevie

cheesecakemom Tue 11-Nov-14 01:38:23

I don't like the name at all and have to agree, I am yet to meet a nice Stephanie!
