I was just doing a random name generator and Wren came up for a girl. I thought it seemed quite cool but is it crazy?

The other names I like are very normal names such as Martha and Beatrice (Bea). Really struggling to find something I love though. Any other suggestions are very welcome.

I love it

Lovely - sweet

And stimpy? Sorry the first thought that popped into my head was that awful cartoon . Love Martha and Beatrice.

I like Wren and Beatrice.

Sorry that should be Clementine!

I like it
I like pia and Eden also

I'd still think of the Naval Wrens (even though formally disbanded years ago, they live on as veterans, at Remembrance etc). Do you have seafaring connections?

Love Wren. DH didnt sadly... sad Another lovely bird name is Linnet.

And almost, it is Ren and Stimpy.

It's pretty, but not if DD is likely to be tall/well-built (IMO!)

Wren is one of my favourites for a girl. The other is Nell. DH likes both and has come up with a delightful way to decide between them when baby is born (if they're a girl) something along the lines of Clovers thoughts. "If she's tiny we'll call her Wren, if she's built like Nelly the Elephant then Nell it is".
Oh he has a way with words. Can you imagine the discussion in years to come "Mum how did you decide on my name......" "oh Nell, it just came to us" blush

Hi Mouse long time no speak. Hope pregnancy is treating you well.

The same pronunciation though liquid

Love Wren, I knew someone called Wren (Ren possibly) once, it was short for Kerensa.

DD1 had a classmate called Wren - a boy - I like it

Fangs4themammaries Tue 16-Feb-16 18:23:28

I like it, and Linnet.

Queenhoneybee Tue 16-Feb-16 18:24:25

I know a 1 year old Wren, lovely name

mrsschu Tue 16-Feb-16 19:09:51

I don't like it at all I'm afraid. It sounds a bit silly and faddy IMO, sorry.

imwithspud Tue 16-Feb-16 19:14:02

I like it, but prefer it if it's short for something. Like Renee.

Quercus3 Tue 16-Feb-16 19:19:48

Wren is lovely - agree that Linnet is a lovely bird name too, along with Serin and Robin

BettyBi0 Tue 16-Feb-16 19:23:10

Wren is lovely! It was on my shortlist but sounded duff wth my short surname.

Tinkalinka Tue 16-Feb-16 21:28:35

I know 2 little Wren's. So sweet x

cornishglos Tue 16-Feb-16 22:44:30

It's a nice bird but not a nice sound.

BackforGood Tue 16-Feb-16 22:53:33

I don't like it. It's a noun. Name of a bird, not a person.

VagueIdeas Tue 16-Feb-16 23:04:11

I agree that it would seem unfortunate if she grew up to be tall or stocky. Wrens are such tiny, delicate little birds.
