Not planning on using it (think the one currently under manufacture is another boy) but just heard this on the school run - what do you think?
On one hand I think 'Gaynor' but the more I think about it, the more I like it...

Awful sad

LetThereBeCupcakes Tue 09-Jun-15 09:46:36

I think "Return to the Forbidden Planet"

Gloooooria. G L O R I A!

No. Just no.

I think it's a lovely happy name.

Gileswithachainsaw Tue 09-Jun-15 09:59:06

makes me think.of that intern in scrubs. The one who JD tells off for waving too much. You abuse waving.

She's old and falls asleep alot.

so no.... sorry....

I like it.

MitzyLeFrouf Tue 09-Jun-15 10:39:33

I love it. Sassy, joyful, and unapologetic.

Great contrast to all the delicate Florences and Amelias.

Hmmm, no, not a fan. Sounds old fashioned in a fuddy duddy way.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Tue 09-Jun-15 11:06:01

Awful, frumpy.

Sophronia Tue 09-Jun-15 11:35:06

I love it.

PistolAnnie Tue 09-Jun-15 12:18:48

Love it!

Jolly, happy, no nonsense.

Makes me think of this song.

Zzzsnatcher Tue 09-Jun-15 12:49:40

I don't like it at all

Jemimapuddleduk Tue 09-Jun-15 12:58:04

Like it a lot.

ChrisQuean Tue 09-Jun-15 13:01:45

It's MIL!

dannydyerismydad Tue 09-Jun-15 13:07:20

It was my favourite auntie's name. A fun, formidable, feisty lady with a sense of mischief and a fondness for the gin.

reuset Tue 09-Jun-15 14:08:05

I don't like Gaynor, but I do like Gloria.

aoife24 Tue 09-Jun-15 14:12:35

Yes, Gloria, G L O R I A: just can't help it popping into my mind.

MildDrPepperAddiction Tue 09-Jun-15 14:21:36

Reignbeau beat me to it!

IsadoraQuagmire Tue 09-Jun-15 16:17:44

It makes me think of Gloria Swanson, Gloria Estefan, and the wonderful Patti Smith track. It's a great name.

Discworld101 Tue 09-Jun-15 17:22:50

I taught a Glory once, which I much prefer to Gloria, even though I would never use it myself.

EdithWeston Tue 09-Jun-15 17:28:00

I think it's queenly.

Wasn't it coined as an honorific for Queen Elizabeth I? So very appropriate now.

Frenchmustard7 Tue 09-Jun-15 17:29:40

Prefer Gladys

MitzyLeFrouf Tue 09-Jun-15 17:30:22

Gladys! shock

florascotia Tue 09-Jun-15 17:33:05

Queen Elizabeth was Gloriana.

Gloria is said to be more recent: www.behindthename.com/name/gloria
