Trying to find a middle name that's "proper" and appealing, to come after our slightly more quirky choice of first name. DH and I can't agree on any and baby is almost here. Thoughts on Natasha - is it nice, wearable and feminine, or a bit 80s? Can't tell any more

I love the name Natasha.
It's very wearable imo.

Well, you asked for associations so "they call her Natasha but she looks like Elsie...I don't wanna go to Chelsea" (shows age)

Sorry not helpful.grin.

First thoughts ~ some one born at Christmas time.

Not that keen really. Name of person I'm replacing at work. But that's personal, it's a nice name, I guess.

toffeeboffin Sat 13-Feb-16 18:28:26

Honestly if by 'proper' you middle class I'd have to disagree.

Explain, toffeeboffin

Black Widow from the Avengers but that's specific to people into that genre!

I don't associate it with any specific class, I think it's a nice name

I think of a beautiful Russian spy saying throatily (in a very Russian accent, of course) "my name is Na-tash-a" shows age. Exotic.

my friend's little girl who had terrible asthma but now plays rugby & at Uni.

Russian Christmas, or is that Natalie?

FadedRed Sat 13-Feb-16 18:40:31

War and Peace. I think it's a lovely name.

elephantpig Sat 13-Feb-16 18:41:57

Oh, I'm sorry to sound a bitch. But just to give my impression, I don't think it's a 'cool' name, I imagine someone quite frumpy.

rosieliveson1 Sat 13-Feb-16 18:43:05

IMy first thought on hearing it is the film 'true lies' where the female lead is being given her spy name and she hopefully asks for "Natasha" (nat-ar-shah) grin

Asking for impressions but reminds me of a queen bee type in dd class (sorry)

superram Sat 13-Feb-16 18:47:04

I immediately thought a bit common but actually I teach a lovely Natasha and it may grow on me. The possibility of tasha as a nickname puts me off.

SpotOn Sat 13-Feb-16 18:47:45

Natasha Kaplinkiplonk or whatever her name is.

It's a nice name....but I don't like the usual nn's.

UmbongoUnchained Sat 13-Feb-16 18:48:09

It's a lovely Russian name! Also makes me think of Black Widow.

Helmetbymidnight Sat 13-Feb-16 18:49:29

I would have said 'Kinski' but I've just watched War and Peace...

GiveMyHeadPeaceffs Sat 13-Feb-16 18:54:09

I think it's a lovely name! It's my friend's middle name; she has a very unusual first name and I think Natasha goes well with it. Anyone that thinks it's a certain class kind of shows their own hang ups imo

Timeless, really
Natasha from Russia
Not very popular in Russia at the moment
