Freya or Skylar?

We found out we're having a girl this week smile Which is good because the only boys name we liked I said the same as the cat! Lol

For years I've liked Skylar, but OH has gone off it. My mum suggested Freya and he really likes it (I think because it sounds a bit Norse and Vikingy!) and actually I do too.

The problem is I teach and have taught 2 Freyas so I can't help but think of them. I'm sure if we went with it I would soon forget them though.

Any thoughts?

I prefer Freya.

Freya is nice but not keen on Skylar - it sounds like something from a dreadful American programme

Freya! Skylar is nice but a bit trendy.

Skylar was Walter Whites long suffering wife on Breaking Bad.

So.......Freya. grin

Skyler. Freya is a bra brand. They make very good bras though but that's all I can think of when I hear the name.

MissClarke86 Thu 20-Oct-16 17:11:47

Haha that's exactly where i heard the name and i really liked it!

Thanks everyone for the opinions.

MissClarke86 Thu 20-Oct-16 17:12:23

Viviene I did discover this upon googling the name...but have never heard of them before.

Freya. I've only ever known male Skylars

Freya. Really don't like Skylar though if you're not overly fussed on Freya I wouldn't use that either.

Freya is lovely

I know Skylar is a proper name but (and this is probably just me) looks like a truncated skylark, or else sounds like some sort of brand name for a plastic (mylar, kevlar... yeah, probably just me)

I do really like it, I've just been teaching for 10 years so have taught most names now!!

To be honest unless it's quite an obscure name, the first image will be of a child I've taught. Once it belongs to my own daughter it'll be entirely different smile

Freya by miles, although it is a brand of bra which I like. I assume the bras were named after the name though, as all their bras have names like Pollyanna and Eleanor.

What about Skye?

YIkes, definitely Freya.

RiverTam Thu 20-Oct-16 19:30:35

I really don't like either.

I like Skylar that's the name of my God-Daughter

I love Skylar

Wasn't Skylar the really evil mutant on that American TV series where they could fly/shape shift or whatever, but his talent was that he sucked their talent out, killing them. I'd run for the hills on Skylar, and go for Freya, bra or not.
