Debating the name Sapphire with a friend, she puts it firmly in the 'Chardonnay' camp and I consider it posh, more akin to Cordelia or Jacinta. What do you think?

It's not posh.

Yeah it's in the Chardonnay camp for me.

It's most definitely in the Chardonnay camp.

See Jacqueline Wilson's books - definitely chavvy!! Or the kind of name that 10-year-old girls think is lovely smile

I'd expect there to be a McQueen on hollyoaks with the name so definitely put it in the Mercedes, Chardonnay camp personally.

Not posh especially when spelt wrong as in DS's class

I taught a Sapphire and a Chardonnay, they were sisters.

I know a posh Sapphire, but her parents aren't from the UK so maybe it is different abroad.

HellKitty Wed 29-Apr-15 11:29:29

I imagine Sapphire to be the heroine in one of Katie Price's books.

Even I know that's not posh, and I'm a bloody Aussie, mate! grin

It's not posh and its not chavvy.

It's just a name.

OttiliaVonBCup Wed 29-Apr-15 11:41:04

To answer the question.
Sapphire's sister is called Chanelle-Mae.

SirChenjin Wed 29-Apr-15 11:43:38

It's new money posh wink

Costacoffeeplease Wed 29-Apr-15 11:46:59

Definitely not posh

sweetpeame Wed 29-Apr-15 11:51:27

Errrr...not posh!

anxiousannie10 Wed 29-Apr-15 12:17:12

I don't think it's either. I'm no Chav and don't consider myself 'posh' but Saphire is just the same as using any other jewel name, such as Ruby, Amethyst or Pearl.

Bombay Sapphire Gin? Yes, in the same league as Chardonnay.
