Having dismissed all my first list of names, DHL was made to think of 6 names he liked. I've told him I'll put them on here for you to comment on please. .and then I'll show him! I'm making no comment.

Bizarrely, i like Suki, although it goes against all my principles as it isn't a proper name.

Not Fawn, as although the baby deer thing is quite cute the idea of "fawning" over someone is not a nice association.

Otherwise you have a strange mix of "out there" names and very standard names. Unusually for me I quite like Lyric.

Like Marianne. Amanda is OK. Emma is too popular. The others are not my cup of tea.

Marianne or Emma

Job done

Marianne or Emma from me too.
I might be swayed by Lyric, depending on Tue surname. Lyric Master, Lyric Acapella, and Lyric Brown would all be um.... Not great.

I vote Emma.

The only one I like is Marianne. I really dislike Lyric and Fawn.

loislines Sun 14-Dec-14 09:16:50

Marianne is lovely and Emma is nice too. Not a fan of the others.

WittyUsername102 Sun 14-Dec-14 09:55:06

Lyric - Seems masculine
Fawn - Just can't picture it on a person.
Emma - Pretty plain, but nothing wrong with it. Like the nickname Emmy.
Amanda - The only people I know with this name are horrible, but I guess I have nothing against the name itself.
Marianne - Same as Amanda.
Suki - I really like it. A very cute name, but I feel it'd suit an adult too.

If it were me, I'd use Suki but with a 'normal' middle name e.g Emma.

SnoringNorma Sun 14-Dec-14 09:58:28

Thank you...much more polite than I was. I dislike Lyric ( pretentious ) Fawn (makes me think beige) Marianne (Sneaky thief at school )
Emma is boring
Amanda is his mum's name
Suki was his first childhood dog!!!!
Why are men determined to be so difficult?
I've developed a crush on Zada. WDYT?

BananaToast Sun 14-Dec-14 09:59:48

Emma is lovely, not keep on the rest at all.

TimefIies Sun 14-Dec-14 10:14:27

I like Amanda and Marianne - not the others.

Lyric sounds like an alias to me, not a name. Fawn I can't see any positives for, Suki sounds like a nickname, and also like Sulky. A personal bias on Emma - every Emma I've ever met has always been huffy and not worth knowing!

Sophronia Sun 14-Dec-14 10:55:35

Marianne or Emma. Amanda is ok too. I prefer Suki as a nn for Susannah.

VainVulva Sun 14-Dec-14 11:13:49

I like Suki!

CruCru Sun 14-Dec-14 12:32:05

I like Marianne. Emma is okay. Amanda is not awful.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 14-Dec-14 13:00:58

Love Marianne. Emma fine.

Lyric and Fawn are bloody awful.

manicinsomniac Sun 14-Dec-14 16:04:24

Lyric - really like it
Fawn - don't like it at all
Emma - it's ok
Amanda - not keen
Marianne - it's ok
Suki - don't like it at all

AuntieStella Sun 14-Dec-14 16:15:39

Lyric - nope. Sounds like random noun, or conceived during a trip to The theatre
Fawn - nope
Emma - lovely
Amanda - fine
Marianne - lovely
Suki - OK as NN (Susan, Suzanne, Susannah) if stand alone prefer the spelling Sukey.

MyBigFuckOffWindow Sun 14-Dec-14 17:12:46

Is it too late to LTB?

Lyric - ridiculous
Fawn - porn name
Emma - I think I've just fallen asleep
Amanda - 1980s
Marianne - OK but a bit bleh
Suki - not only a box of juice, but very close to Sucky.

I'm not keen on Zada, it's a bit Emperor Ming. What else do you like, OP?

burgatroyd Sun 14-Dec-14 17:59:34

Op, it sounds like you're in the faze of cycling through 'unusual' and random names because you and dh want to agree on something already! I went through something like this with my DH and came up with something completely random which we then changed fconfused

BlueStarsAtNight Sun 14-Dec-14 20:34:47

I like Emma and Marianne from his list. Dislike the others.
I also dislike Zada. It doesn't sound like a real name.
