What do you think of this girls name? It means small champion, which I think is lovely smile x

I haven't heard it for ages. I think it sounds rather nice.

celtictoast Mon 16-Nov-15 09:43:39

I quite like it.

Sunshine511 Mon 16-Nov-15 10:10:48

Thank you ladies... That's a nice positive start smile

I love it. I know one Carly and she's just amazing. I suppose that makes me biased towards the name a bit smile

Difficultchoice Mon 16-Nov-15 10:13:49

Not for me but I can see why people might choose it!

romanrainsalot Mon 16-Nov-15 10:23:25

Like it a lot. Not heard it in a long time but its sweet. I also knew a Carly in school, she was nice

That's my name. smile But mine is spelt unusually awkwardly, thanks parents. I love Carly spelt the traditional way. I think it's a lovely warm name.

Go for it. Not many of us these days.

It's a lovely name - I hope you use it smile

Willow33 Mon 16-Nov-15 11:05:43

I know two - both lovely girls

Sunshine511 Mon 16-Nov-15 11:25:06

Wow!! Great response!! From looking online apparently it's the 650th most popular girls name in the UK. So I thought I'd get a lot more negative comments! Seems it's well liked, just not that common (which is a bonus! Thank you ladies. Just need a middle name now smile any suggestions?x

Some great suggestions, thank you! I like Carly Louise but actually think I might prefer Carly Louisa. What do you think?x

Minty82 Mon 16-Nov-15 12:47:06

I like it as a nickname for Caroline (which I love in itself), but not really a fan on its own. But as no one would know day to day whether it was a full name or not that needn't affect you!

I like it smile I personally wouldn't use it, but it's a nice name and Carly Louisa is great smile

IoraRua Mon 16-Nov-15 16:30:56

Like I said on other thread- lovely.
Carly Louisa would be nice.

I think its dated sorry.

Sunshine511 Mon 16-Nov-15 18:07:49

Thank you very much for all the advice and opinions. smile x

MagicalHamSandwich Mon 16-Nov-15 18:09:33

Lovely! I'm admittedly biased because I have a lovely friend by that name (but then I have friends with horrible names, too).

Sunshine511 Mon 16-Nov-15 19:27:06

Thank you smile a lot of people saying they know a nice person by that name! smile

Gracey79 Mon 16-Nov-15 19:31:08

Lovely name - very underused

hawkmcqueen Mon 16-Nov-15 19:42:38

Very 80s. I would put it with Stacey and Tracy. I seem to be in a minority though!

ktmummy1 Mon 16-Nov-15 19:58:54

I think it's dated but I do like it. I think I prefer Carla, Cara, Clara though!

HeteronormativeHaybales Mon 16-Nov-15 20:03:36

I really, really don't like it, sorry. If you áre absolutely set on it, you could call your dd Charlotte and use it as a nickname? Then at least she has the choice of a more (again, sorry) elegant and distinguished name to use as she grows up.
