We want to name our baby girl Carvela. We have chosen this unique name as we thought of carmel,carmilla and carmela but they are common names on my side of the family which are italian. So we wanted something different.

What do you think of this name?? We have been calling her Carvela already, she is born on the 26th September!

Haha I was right - I wasn't the first !

It's a shoe shop

That's not a name, it's a brand of shoe. It's like calling your baby Matalan, or PCWorld! hmm

I suppose it's no different to 'Clark'

Can't see it taking off though since it's a crap name

NigellasGuest Sun 21-Aug-16 10:49:30

Carmela is nice OP. Does it matter that much if it's a name popular within the fam?

I agree - shoes!

Shoes - sorry!

Chottie Sun 21-Aug-16 10:50:25

Shoes, shoes and more shoes........

NigellasGuest Sun 21-Aug-16 10:51:45

I wouldn't got for Carmilla because it will be mistaken for Camilla throughout her life and she would get fed up correcting people. (I know you don't want to call her that anyway)

I'm afraid my first thought is of the shoe brand. But is that named after a person (like Mercedes)?

NapoleonsNose Sun 21-Aug-16 10:52:26

Echoing everyone else...SHOES!

Carmella is a lovely name, Carvella isn't, sorry.

Shoes. Don't do it

user1471771116 Sun 21-Aug-16 10:55:02

I know it's a shoe brand.
But it wasn't intended to be named after that

Our second name was going to be Valentina

Their shoes are okayish.

Shoes. Sorry.
