The first and middle name I've picked for DD due in June

What do you think?

Honest opinion. I like Frances, but Sorrel sounds like a name for a horse. And sounds a lot like 'sorrow'.

Sorry but I really hate the name Sorrel. I know one and I secretly hate having to say her name out loud blush

I think they are beautiful together.

I love Sorrel smile

They sound lovely BUT she is going to have to repeat 'yes, Sorrel, no, no sorry, SORREL' about 9000000 times a day.

I really like both. Very nice together.
More importantly you like them.

They sound nice together but no one will say them together. She will just be known as Sorrel which is fine if you think it stands up by itself.

There's a mum at gym who gave her daughter two names together like that. No one says it and she scowls at anyone who just uses the first name. Which everyone does. It makes me laugh how pretentious she is.

I don't like Sorrel at all. Frances is a nice middle name though.

Think Sorrell is lovely. Not so keen on Frances as it's just not my cup of tea. Is it a family name or just one you like?

Mrsknackered Sun 26-Feb-17 23:01:45

Sorrel is lovely, I think it's so elegant sounding.
I've always loved Soren for a boy too though.

TBH I thought it was a name for a ds! I don't know it's ok, I think it may be a grower. It's distinctive without being crazy!

It's a lovely combination.

Buntysoven Mon 27-Feb-17 00:23:54

I really like it.

I love the name Sorelle, I know 2, but only spelt Sorelle. Which is how they both spell it. The "Elle" makes it sound softer. My sisters road is called Sorrel and is pronounced Soral

The "sor-relle" version is much softer in my opinion

Sorrel is lovely, another plant name.
Also the name of of the plucky heroine in one of my favourite childhood books!

Rockaby Mon 27-Feb-17 08:16:24

I like it smile

I think it would sound nicer for a DD if you spelt it 'Sorrelle' other wise she'll just get called 'Sor-al' (rhyme with coral).
Frances is my middle name! when I was a teenager I thought it was really cool that Kurt Cobain/Courtney Loves DD was named Frances. blush
