What do you think? I think I love it, but am fully aware it won't be everybody's cup of tea grin/

We have a very common surname, which it does nicely with.

Lovely. Different but not unfamiliar. Go for it.

I have a Dusty! At risk of outing myself, it's really her middle name but it's just kind of stuck and really suits her now she's heading for her teens!

Hey Dusty! You look like you need a good dusting!

Absolutely the stupidest name i have ever heard

LovelyMarchHare Sat 31-Jan-15 22:14:16

I have always assumed it's a nickname tho for what I don't know . Is it not? Tbh I'm not sure.

Really? How would it go down if she turned out to want to be a lawyer, or a profession where she may need a serious name? I think I am just in the not my cup of tea camp.

Please no.

That's so great grin It doesn't pass the high court judge test though - presumably that doesn't bother you.

I like it, but I'd want a more formal name that it could be a derivative of. Justine?

Dusty crophopper? The film was only out last year. Dusty just isn't a name is it? It's a nickname

CurlyWurlyCake Sat 31-Jan-15 22:18:01

In the nicest possible way.


Dusty bin
Busty Dusty
Musty Dusty

It's terrible.

Maki79 Sat 31-Jan-15 22:19:37

I really like Justine (nn Dusty!). Justine, an underused pretty name IMO!

patienceonastatue Sat 31-Jan-15 22:20:53

There is a very prominent Dusty in the industry I work in - which is professional, well paid, serious etc.

If you love it, go for it!

LovelyMarchHare Sat 31-Jan-15 22:24:46

Art at Busty Dusty. Poor thing.

Just checked wiki about Dusty Springfield. She got her name from playing football in the streets .......

It's a traditional nickname for anyone whose surname is Miller, and I'd vaguely expect it to be a boy.

calzone Sat 31-Jan-15 22:26:38

Tis awful.

Really awful.

Not a name I would want for myself.

I adore Dusty Springfield, one of the very best female vocalists. The yearning and heartache she could convey.............

But I definitely wouldn't call a child Dusty.

CaptainJamesTKirk Sat 31-Jan-15 22:32:41

Dusty Crophopper... Please don't do that to a child.

Ineedanewone Sat 31-Jan-15 22:34:35

My dog is called Dusty! People love it.

storytopper Sat 31-Jan-15 22:36:20

Couldn't imagine calling a baby this, or a five-year old, or a ten-year old, or anyone really.

Might work for a dachshund or a hamster.

Sorry, OP.

Dusty is not a name. Have a word with yourself.

Hadn't thought of this 'classic' TV show in ages.
