Thoughts on Ivory?

Ilovenannyplum Sun 02-Oct-16 21:04:49

It's a colour, not a name.
Sorry blush

BellMcEnd Sun 02-Oct-16 21:05:33

Um. No. Not keen. Sorry. What about Ivy instead?

Amandahugandkisses Sun 02-Oct-16 21:06:23

I think it's beautiful

Better for a girl than a boy, but I think it's pretty terrible either way.

Solasum Sun 02-Oct-16 21:07:15

Elephant as a nickname?

Andcake Sun 02-Oct-16 21:07:45

Makes me think of dead elephants

Yoarchie Sun 02-Oct-16 21:09:26

Well it sounds nice as a word but the ivory trade is horrible so I don't think it's a great association. What about Iris instead.

Yoarchie Sun 02-Oct-16 21:09:50

It's a nice sounding word but with bad connotations re ivory trade.

Maybe Iris instead?

Oops I thought my post was lost so I rewrote it!

It just doesn't sound namey.

Ebony or Ivy?

GoldBubbles Sun 02-Oct-16 21:20:19

Oh sad I like it, that's a shame

ScarletSienna Sun 02-Oct-16 21:37:29

I think of the phrase, 'tickling the ivories' and then of tusks in a sad way.

RiverTam Sun 02-Oct-16 21:42:46

Yes, sad dead elephants. I wouldn't.

I wouldn't do Ivy either though.

katemess12 Sun 02-Oct-16 21:48:08

Bad. Not AS bad as Ebony, but still bad.

Ivy is much better.

ErrolTheDragon Sun 02-Oct-16 21:49:11

It sounds nice till you think about what it means. sad

Really not at all in good taste, sorry.

chinlo Sun 02-Oct-16 22:12:07

I think of "Ebony and Ivory" - the names of thousands of interracial lesbian couples according to porn.

HoratioNightboy Sun 02-Oct-16 22:14:30

I have a distant relative called Ivory. I think it's lovely!

minipie Sun 02-Oct-16 22:25:32

Sorry dead elephant thoughts here too.

How about Avery?
