Last chance to change my daughter's name to Bianca

I just love the name Bianca. We have named her already but she isn't officially registered.

People will immediately think of Eastenders though won't they? Or has long enough passed?

She also seems to have red hair which won't help the association.

Well, I wouldn't think Eastenders because I've never seen it, but I need to know what you're changing it from before I can comment!

The red-headed screeching banshee in Eastenders 😟
Each to their own I guess!

Yep, Eastenders even though I haven't watched it in years. Not even Jagger can convince me it's a nice name. Really don't like it. What is your DD currently called?

DocMcFanjo Tue 04-Oct-16 16:06:27

I think Eastenders too.

Also seeing it written down I think "biatch". Sorryblush

I don't hate Bianca... What's your daughter currently called?

Mybeardeddragonjustdied2016 Tue 04-Oct-16 16:08:23

What's her current name!?
Is Bianca the lesser of the 2 evils??
I hope you dh isn't called Richard tho?
Sorry need full info for informed opinion!

Hermione, which I also love. I have no idea where the Bianca thing has come from. My other option is Ziva.

I saw the name Bianca on this thread and didn't think of Eastenders, at least not til someone mentioned it. I think it's a pretty name. Far far nicer than some of the trendy names listed on here all the time (Edna etc).

Hermione is a squillion times nicer than Bianca.

KoalaDownUnder Tue 04-Oct-16 16:11:49

Ziva reminds me of the Zika virus.

Keep Hermione!

I do like Hermione though, although obviously as a child I thought it was said 'Her -miown'.

MrsCaecilius Tue 04-Oct-16 16:16:42

Hermione is SO much nicer to my ear.

Like Ziva too, but the only one I know is a labrador.

Really dislike Biancacaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa (and I've never even watched Eastenders)

Bianca is lovely and doesn't make me think of eastenders. Hermione on the other hand just makes me think you're huge HP fans.

DangerQuakeRhinoSnake Tue 04-Oct-16 16:21:29

I'm sure she will make the name her own regardless of what you call her. All the people in her life will think of her when they hear the name, rather than Eastenders or Harry Potter or whatever.

Mybeardeddragonjustdied2016 Tue 04-Oct-16 16:27:48

Keep her name as it is!!

Agree that Hermoine is much nicer than Bianca.

chinlo Tue 04-Oct-16 16:34:36

Both names are quite strongly linked to one specific fictional character, so if we discount that issue and just look at which name is nicer....

Hermione still wins.

tickingthebox Tue 04-Oct-16 16:38:18

Hermione, 1000% so much better name than Biancaaaaa (which people will say in a mockney accent every time you introduce her).

ample Tue 04-Oct-16 16:55:31

I don't think of Eastenders because I don't watch the show or know of the character.
You have already chosen a name with well-known associations however so it's six and two threes really imo.

Regardless of who matches the name with the soap drama right now; children born in 2016 or your DD's future peers won't know of the Eastenders character you are referring to, say, in 10 or 15 years time

mamapants Tue 04-Oct-16 17:02:18

I think if you are considering changing her name that must mean you prefer Brancaster. Did you choose hermione over Brancaster because you were worried about the Eastenders thing? Bianca is nice, people might be daft enough to take the piddle once or twice but they'll soon get other it.

Bianca = EastEnders
Hermione = Harry Potter
Ziva = NCIS

Sorry OP not very helpful grin I like Hermione and Ziva the best objectively!

MitzyLeFrouf Tue 04-Oct-16 17:37:14

Bianca is certainly a better option than Hermione!

Ziva reminds me of the Zika virus.

juneau Tue 04-Oct-16 17:41:18

Bianca + red hair - oh that's a tough one. I don't think I'd do it.
Hermione = Harry Potter
Ziva? Zika?

Back to the drawing board!
