I am pregnant with dc4 and im unsure how I feel about Nancy, one minute I love it and the next im not so sure.
What do you think of it? Would you use it?

I have a Nancy. She is bright, funny, creative and passionate. She loves her name.
I know 2 others as well both adults and they are lovely people. I have never met a Nancy I didn't like.

I love it. DH didn't so we didn't use it.

I think it's one of those names that some people just don't like. You'll know better than me with three DC already but personally if I wasn't sure about a name I'd take that as a sign it wasn't right for me.

I really like it. As long as it didn't become 'Nan' which might worry me.

I like it too. It's "cool" but also a proper name.

MamaLazarou Sat 27-Jun-15 09:11:26

It's a brilliant name and I would definitely use it.

I like it. Did you ever read the Arthur Ransom children's books? The Nancy character was kick-ass.

BadHenry Sat 27-Jun-15 09:35:48

The character's real name was Ruth, but pirates are ruthless so called herself Nancy smile

Great name. Good associations for me. I've never met a Nancy who wasn't clever, lovely and bright smile

Love it

I like it but it is a growing name. I've heard of 2 being born in my wider circle the last year or so n there is one in my dc's nursery so not as unusual as it was a few years ago unfortunately.

I thought it was a nn for Anne. Have only ever known brilliant Nancys. Love the name by association

Beautiful name, love it. My husband didnt - same as above 'Nancy boy' concern, which I personally think would not be a problem at all. Go for it xxxx

Dailylurker Sat 27-Jun-15 11:26:35

I'm on dc4 and it's top of my list too... Love it x

SuburbanRhonda Sat 27-Jun-15 11:29:41

Nancy Sinatra

Cool personified - go for it!

VixxFace Sat 27-Jun-15 11:43:31

Well it's a horrible name either way

YouMakeMyDreams Sat 27-Jun-15 11:44:47

Love it. Ds2 was a boy so never got to use it but so would if I was ever going to have another one.

iwanttobemrsnorthman Sat 27-Jun-15 12:51:05

I think we are going to go for it smile
