I really love this name for dc4 but I know through searching previous threads on here its very disliked... 🤔

Still the case?

I can't see how it's 'uglier' than Aurora or something like that..

Just wondered your thoughts?


Thanks x

I only know Viv Albertine. But I like it!

Sadly DH has vetoed Alberta (like the Eric Clapton song) for our future baby!

I quite like it. Don't think it's ugly and it's much better than Aurora grin

Tbh I think any name with "bert" in it is ugly - male or female. It's just not a good sound.

Please don't!

Oh my first dolly was called Albertina! It's a lovely name. Congratulations!

lavenderpekins Wed 23-Mar-16 18:29:31

why Lunar1? What's your reasoning? I'm interested.
When I 'hear' it without connotations to Bert the 'sound' of it imo has a lovely ring to it.. No?

I like it - it makes me think of an old fashioned rambling rose that my grandmother grew in her garden.

Would you use Ali or Tina to avoid shortening it to Bert?smile

Ambroxide Wed 23-Mar-16 18:38:04

I love it.

MaudGonneMad Wed 23-Mar-16 18:38:30

Proustian. I love it.

lavenderpekins Wed 23-Mar-16 18:43:44

Ooh great..! love 'rambling rose' packed lunch.

Ber-teeny I quite like as a nickname.. 😄

Ragusa Wed 23-Mar-16 18:45:51

Not sure... don't hate it but I prefer Amandine.

sonlypuppyfat Wed 23-Mar-16 18:47:11

Please don't it's grim

lavenderpekins Wed 23-Mar-16 18:51:30

How is it 'grim'? Grim to me is maude.. 😁

Jade1212 Wed 23-Mar-16 18:52:28

I don't like it, but each to their own! Don't know why the dig at 'Aurora' was needed though

Nicesunnytuesday Wed 23-Mar-16 18:53:31

Love it!

Armandine - yuk imo (it's all personal of course!)

sonlypuppyfat Wed 23-Mar-16 18:54:15

Any name with Bert in is grim

Sophronia Wed 23-Mar-16 18:55:02

I like it. I also like similar names like Alberta, Roberta and Amandine

MuddhaOfSuburbia Wed 23-Mar-16 18:56:04

oooh I think it's cute

but can't quite see it in an everyday context

babies do grow into their names, though

(btw Aurora is unpronounceable by 98.7% of under 6s grin)

lavenderpekins Wed 23-Mar-16 18:57:10

Oh sorry! Genuinely not meant as a dig it's just a similar name imo.
Begins with an a, unconventional etc.. I actually quite like aurora but to me = Disney..
Interesting there are more positive opinions of the name this time..

Floggingmolly Wed 23-Mar-16 18:59:15

What's with all these bizarre names lately? It seems in their quest for "unique", people are missing the mark completely and going for ridiculous instead confused
Top tip; if nobody else has thought to use it, it's usually for a very good reason.

wasninah Wed 23-Mar-16 19:01:32

I like it.

lavenderpekins Wed 23-Mar-16 19:02:23

Then the world would be BORING flog..! 😄

sonlypuppyfat Wed 23-Mar-16 19:03:41

Poor child will never be able to buy a mug with her name on it!!

lavenderpekins Wed 23-Mar-16 19:06:07
