Baby girl is 4 weeks old. We love Autumn Wren. Is it just too 'Yankee'? sad

BrightRedSpinner Thu 05-Jan-17 19:02:55

I really like it.

DorotheaHomeAlone Thu 05-Jan-17 19:06:04

One or the other, please. That sounds like a breed name.

MrsUnderwood Thu 05-Jan-17 19:06:31

It's beautiful. I love nature names and it conjures up lovely images in my head.

Personally I think either is fine but together they are a bit much and do sound like a pedigree dog or horse. Sorry. But in the end it's whether you like it. If Wren is a middle name it will rarely be used anyway.

LovedByAll Thu 05-Jan-17 19:10:52

Yeah, Wren would be the middle name. Seems like mixed views...

There is an American species of bird called Winter Wren (scientific name Troglodytes hlemalis). But you are OK with Autumn Wren.

Gallavich Thu 05-Jan-17 19:14:53

Too much. Neither are commonly used as names which is fine per se but both together is excessive.

Autumn is in the top 150! It's definitely getting popular.

I think it's nice, OP.

OutDamnedWind Thu 05-Jan-17 19:18:23

I love it, but think it would probably be a bit 'too much' for me to use it in real life.

Then again, middle names are hardly used...

pizzaparty Thu 05-Jan-17 19:19:31

I think it's gorgeous

MollyHuaCha Thu 05-Jan-17 19:22:47

It's an amazing name for a highly successful actor, singer, author, Wimbledon winner. It's an embarrassing name for a teacher, soldier, barrister, shop assistant, accounts manager...

I know a Wren. Everyone likes it, even the grandparents.

Autumn isn't my fave though. It is a bit American, somehow.

Soubriquet Thu 05-Jan-17 19:29:05

I like it

Really pretty

howtheheckdoidealwiththis Thu 05-Jan-17 19:30:03

I think it's a beautiful name.

UsedToBeAPaxmanFan Thu 05-Jan-17 19:32:36

Honestly? I think it's a bit too much. But if Wren is the middle name them most people won't know that she's even called that once she's older. Autumn is ok, I know a couple of Autumns, it's not that unusual.

Your baby, your choice.

Love it!

Namechangenurseryconcerns Thu 05-Jan-17 19:49:58

I like the name Autumn but I don't think I would use it for a winter baby.
Although I guess 4 weeks ago was technically still Autumn?

MrsBungle Thu 05-Jan-17 19:51:40

Love both names.

LovedByAll Thu 05-Jan-17 19:53:22

Yes, technically still Autumn smile

Motherwithflaws Thu 05-Jan-17 19:54:36

Love wren, not keen on autumn

LovedByAll Thu 05-Jan-17 19:56:24

Not to be rude, but not fussed if Autumn is liked, we love it smile just needed to know if the names could work together.

ofhorse Thu 05-Jan-17 19:57:45

How could you call her autumn if she was born in December? Love wren though... but my dd was over 11lbs when she was born so hardly the smallest songbird grinI went for my no 2 choice!

EssentialHummus Thu 05-Jan-17 19:58:54

I really like it.

thegirlinthecar Thu 05-Jan-17 19:59:27

I love both of these names. I think if they were hyphenated it would definitely be a bit much but as a middle name I say go for it.
