Is it weird to name my daughter April if she will be born in March?

I love the name April but she will definitely be born in March, is this strange?

My Mae was born in February, but we did have the alternative spelling option.

What about Avril?

No it is fine . Or you could have Avril? Congratulations xx

Not at all - I knew an April born in August. It's a very pretty name.

Yes. I am equally confused by winter born girls called Summer and summer born girls called Holly though.

It's a lovely name for any time of year.

I love April, but really dislike Avril.

I think it is a bit weird - sorry. Martha? Mara?

No it's not weird at all. It's a nice name and much better than Avril don't go for that

I don't think it's weird at all. I know two Aprils and it's never occurred to me to wonder when their birthdays are!

April is a beautiful name regardless of when she is born. I also like Summer.

I know of lots of Junes not born in June.

I wouldn't think it weird. If I ever met an April it wouldn't occur to me to assume that she was also born in April. Hate Avril though.

April is a name in its own right so I don't think it'd be that odd.

If anything I think naming an April baby April is a bit predictable, I'd probably avoid that more!

The Cornish version is Ebrel, just in case that appeals.

I know a Summer born on Christmas Eve so I'm going to say it's fine grin

It's just a bit weird, but then again, I used to work with a woman called May (born in May) who had daughters called April (born in April) and June (born in June) it's her poor son, November, I felt most sorry for

My little girl is called April and she was born in January smile

Inthenick Thu 17-Nov-16 23:15:06

Totally fine.

April is a gorgeous name.

Call her March? The aunt in Little Women was called this, the one that left Jo the legacy IIRC.

Wasn't March their surname?
