You know how some names conjur images of the person. What image does Nina conjur in your mind?

Intelligent. Maybe a bit babied.

A bit hippy and alternative, but that's because both Nina's I know are like that! Very pretty.

Ps it's my DH's ex's name so has negative connotations for me but despite that I still like it smile

Very petite and very beautiful. Sharp witted but funny with it, clever and kind.

I only know one Nina, she is 87 but she is all of the above.

I was considering nina and when I suggested it to dh he said no straight away. When I asked why ge said 'it was the name of one of Christopher columbus's ships'. Apparently that was sufficient to close the discussion.
I was left going wTF???? confusedgrin

I still like it smile

Firstly, strong, friend Nina left home at fifteen, she's still not returned to England. I know she studied at an American College/University and works as a nurse now but not in America (the last time I spoke to her age had left Washington for the Virgin Islands.

Love it. It would be on our short list, but doesn't go with our chosen mn.

BTW, Columbus's ship was the Niña, with a tilde over the second n. So pronounced neen-ya.

But middle-aged for me.

Very delicate and small, blonde wispy hair, a bit insubstantial in personality.

CitronVert Sat 10-Jan-15 15:23:48

Dainty and dark haired. Spanish looking with a severe bun like a flamenco dancer.

Petite, dark hair big brown eyes

Groovee Sat 10-Jan-15 15:25:52

Having worked with 3 they were all brown haired but bright and lovely x

UriGeller Sat 10-Jan-15 15:26:06

Small and slight and dark haired, Welsh? Even though she's petite she's really ballsy.

Pretty positive images so far.

I'm a bit worried by the associations with being small though. I'm nearly 6ft so my daughter is likely to be tall too. Do people think that matters?

GotToBeInItToWinIt Sun 11-Jan-15 07:49:08

If your DD is tall then people she knows will come to associate the name 'Nina' with tall people smile

GotToBeInItToWinIt Sun 11-Jan-15 07:50:01

Ps no it doesn't matter at all. No one is going to say to her 'what, you can't be called Nina, Nina's are small!'

I'm not wild about Nina but it has the advantage of being very international (if that matters to you).

Pramula Sun 11-Jan-15 08:03:58

I know two fantastic Ninas- adult and child. Lovely pretty name and I like the international-ness of it too. Def on my list.

SunshineAndShadows Sun 11-Jan-15 12:32:15

Dark haired cornish, pretty, hippyish, smart, independent. Nina-bean

WesH Sun 11-Jan-15 13:23:35

The Nina I know is bubbly and excitable

Marcipex Sun 11-Jan-15 19:19:59

Petite, blonde curls, French.

sidsgranny Sun 11-Jan-15 19:22:25

Pretty Ballerina! (i.e. the Abba song!). I do know a grown up Nina (late 30's) who is absolutely lovely. I think it's a great name.

I know a tall Nina ..very intelligent and beautiful. I love the name.
