Heard this recently and thought it sounded nice. Unusual but not too out there! What do you think?

originalbiglymavis Sat 11-Feb-17 19:11:03

Short for something? I've never heard of it.

It's awful, sorry. It says you are the sibling and we couldn't be bothered to think of a name. You are first born's sibling. BUT that is only my opinion smile

DearMrDilkington Sat 11-Feb-17 19:12:01

Not a fan, sorry. Sounds like a 'cutesy' name for sibling.

Loyly Sat 11-Feb-17 19:12:26

I don't like it at all, sorry OP.

gruber Sat 11-Feb-17 19:13:32

Um, no. Sounds like sibling. Just no.

frogmellla Sat 11-Feb-17 19:14:06

It's a surname

MrsTerryPratchett Sat 11-Feb-17 19:14:27

It would be fairly obvious you weren't the PFB!

RortyCrankle Sat 11-Feb-17 19:19:25

Totally out there- horrible.

greenfolder Sat 11-Feb-17 19:31:57

Its a surname. I know several local families with it (bedfordshire). Cant think why youd use it as a first name unless it meant something to you?

reuset Sat 11-Feb-17 19:43:51

<rearranges and drops letters> Did you mean Sibyl, or Sybil? <hopeful>

Sibley is not good as a first name.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sat 11-Feb-17 19:48:01

No, just no, sorry.

yellowbirdie Sat 11-Feb-17 20:27:03

Is it for a boy or girl?

Sounds like dribbly. Not keen sorry.

For a girl try Sybella or Sybilla nn Sybbie. Much better IMO.

Elbi Sat 11-Feb-17 20:30:58

Oh, I quite liked the sound of it until someone mentioned the sibling thing

BackforGood Sat 11-Feb-17 20:45:18

Another who doesn't like it.

JanuaryJuniper Sat 11-Feb-17 21:00:39

Ok ok you have totally put ne off, consider it off the list!!

Dontrocktheboat Sat 11-Feb-17 22:42:11

I think it sounds a bit lispy, sorry (maybe reminds me of sibilant - or Thisbe who is one of the ugly sisters in some versions of Cinderella).

HoratioNightboy Sat 11-Feb-17 22:47:38

I quite like it, it's very similar to Sibla, the old Scots form of Sybil which was often pronounced and spelled as Siblie. I can understand that it's not to everyone's taste though.

Aquamarine1029 Sun 12-Feb-17 01:12:52

Oh god, it's horrible.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 12-Feb-17 11:07:28

Aww, never mind January, do you have anymore names lined up ?
Go on, I dare you ! 😂💐

CaoNiMa Sun 12-Feb-17 11:53:20

I really like it! Puts me in mind of a 1920s Manhattan socialite.

SantasLittleMonkeyButler Sun 12-Feb-17 11:56:02

It's a surname. In the town where I live it's the surname of quite a notorious family (in a bad way).

I can't imagine anyone very local to me using it as a first name wink.

Even if you take that local element away, I don't think it really sounds like a first name anyway TBH.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 12-Feb-17 12:17:55

How about Sidney ?

MrsMeeseeks Sun 12-Feb-17 13:12:36

It sounds like a toddler struggling to say Sidney.
