Love Abby and came across the name Abrielle. Can't decide if I like it or not.
OH likes Kuwait for a boy (YUK) and I'm a bit embarrassed that I like Douglas...A lot.
Please help!

Oh God not Kuwait. Sodding phone Kiefer.

So if your next is a boy, you'll have Abrielle and Kiefer. Does it fit?

FastWindow Sat 15-Nov-14 03:39:56

Or Abrielle and Douglas.

haha I thought 'Kuwait? WTAF?'

Keifer much more suitable. grin

I read lots of these. I always say name your child what the hell you want. Even if that's chardonnay or whatever. Your child, your choice.

I know a little Douglas! Doug is sweet for a baby and wee boy.

Abrielle just looks like Gabrielle without the G. Incidentally, the former is a short form of the latter.

Keifer is ok.

Despite knowing a very lovely Douglas, I struggle to imagine a baby one. Perhaps because the one I know is in his 80's.

I love Douglas! I just suggested it to DH if we have a boy and he liked it too. Are you Scottish?

I like Douglas! I went to school with a couple and I'm in my 20s so I have no problem imagining it on children and young men. Kiefer's okay but I think Douglas is a million times better.

I'm not sure about Abrielle either to be honest. It's pretty but I don't know if I like it.

Abrielle sounds made up by someone aiming for the fussiest, frilliest name they could find.

Keifer is good!

Douglas will be my boy, if its a boy

Sorry, Kiefer sounds like Queef to me. I've never liked the name for that reason. Douglas is nice though.

I like Abrielle, but written down, it looks like a typo of Gabrielle. What about Abigail or Amber?

monkeymamma Sat 15-Nov-14 20:32:41

Douglas is great.

But pleeeeeeease can you call him Kuwait? So disappointed that was a typo!

SnoringNorma Sun 16-Nov-14 03:47:36

Lol Kuwait it is then! I've decided I don't like Kiefer and OH has decided he doesn't like Douglas! Abrielle off the table too. You're right. Too fussy. Good job I've got ages. He's also vetoed Clara Lois Jocelyn and Lucille. And he really wants Kiefer. Praying for a girl.

Oh how rude. Forgot to say thanks for your helpsmile

Castlemilk Sun 16-Nov-14 11:11:20

How about Kit? Short for Christopher, but also Kester?
