Help me decide! (I realise names not to everyone's taste but I love them all)

Bryony! Tabitha is for a cat, and Juno is nice but too 2015 and will date.

All lovely.

Bryony in particular

I love Tabitha and Juno, both fabulous names.
Really dislike Bryony. sorry. To me it feels very dated but not in a good way.

1. Juno... Juno And The Paycock
2. Bryony
3. Tabitha... cat's name maybe (though a nice cat's name)

Bryony - nice, quite unusual

Juno - pregnant annoying girl in movie. Meh, not into it.

Tabitha - think it's dreadful, it feels both witchy and suited to a cat. I really don't get the love for this one.

Bryony is v dated IMO.

Thanks everyone. I do totally get the cat connection to Tabitha, so I can see why that would put people off. I think it's such a shame Juno makes everyone think of that film, but also see why they do. Argh, baby naming is hard!

Do you like Robyn OP?

I put Bryony and Robyn in the same category (and love both)

BearGrower Sun 01-Nov-15 17:21:47

I do like Robyn, but for some reason the spelling of it with a 'yn' puts me off. I have no idea why!

Tabitha. Not sure why but not Bryony. Juno is trying too hard.

I like Tabitha and Juno.

Not keen on Bryony.

We'll definitely not Tabitha. You're not having a kitten..
Juno and Bryony are both gorgeous. But I think I'd go with Bryony at a push

Tabitha. Bryony is awful.

Tabitha. Bryony my name and hate it. Hideous and have not forgiven my parents for calling me it. Juno is equally awful.

BettyBi0 Sun 01-Nov-15 18:56:03

Please not Bryony. It sounds a bit drippy and whiney not sure why.

LOVE Tabitha and really wanted to use it for my DD1 but got such negative reactions from friends and family that I didn't use it. I've met a couple of little Tabithas since she was born and it just seemed such a perfect little name on them but their families were a zillion times posher than mine haha.

Juno just reminds me of the film with the pregnant teenager although I like the way it sounds when said with an English accent.

I like Bryony

SecretWitch Sun 01-Nov-15 19:00:46
