Sorry, a no from me?

I used to know a Star but it was short for Anastasia. I was always do jealous of her cool nickname!

Seren? (Welsh for star)

Not for me either. However, the name Nova means the same thing, but it more of, if you get what I mean. Also Astrid has a starry feeling to it.

Nova is a very pretty name, and is linked to novas, super novas and such.

But if its Star you like then each to their own smile

Not Star, no.

How about Stella or Estelle?

Only as a middle name

Wasn't there a Star in Lost Boys?
I'm not keen to be honest, maybe a middle name!

Seren, Astrid both lovely imo, Stella also nice. Star I think is more of a nickname.

I was going to say Star in lost boys. Probably best as a middle name. My barbie doll was cashed Starina, perhaps you could have that instead!

Stella-less obvious but still the same meaning

Muchtoomuchtodo Wed 05-Aug-15 22:29:02

Not for a first name. No.

Here in Wales Seren is lovely, Astrid is also beautiful and timeless.

Stella or Tara?

No to star and no to Stella (Stella just makes me thing of the lager)

I don't like it sorry.

What about making her after a constellation? Or a particular star?

Of course if you and your partner love it just go for it. Good luck with your pregnancy.

I quite like it though it does make me think of horses for some reason.

I was talking with a Welsh speaking friend who's DD's are Seren and Deryn, so Star and Bird in English. We were saying how in Welsh they are really common names but in English would be considered a bit 'out there'.

What about Aurora?

Floggingmolly Wed 05-Aug-15 22:47:48

It's dreadful. What "signs" are you getting??

HeyDuggee Wed 05-Aug-15 22:48:46

Nova is worse than star. It is very close to "new" in some Slavic languages and unless you're a satellite, it isn't a name. At least there's ponies and horseys named Star.

Signs? What do you mean?

Anyway, no. I can think of a jacqueline wilson character with the same name and even at that, her sister was Dolphin (can't believe I've just posted about the same characters in another thread grin ).

A constellation/star name would be nice though. Even Star as a middle name would be better. It's a hard name to live up to.

I quite like it. My DD is called Charlotte and when she was little someone misheard her name and thought she was called Starlet and I thought it sounded really nice for some reason.

MrsGentlyBenevolent Thu 06-Aug-15 00:31:06

No, Star and Seren are just horrid in my opinion. Serena is nicer, as is Aurora. Dawn isn't too bad but maybe a bit old fashioned. Perhaps use Star as a middle name, if it still seems nice later on?
