I have loved this name for months and months. Now due date is near and I am having second thoughts. Opinions?

Love it

Great name. I think it's beautiful and is known but not common which, to me, is the perfect combination.

Yes gorgeous name really great!

❤️ Nancy.
Will she have a middle name OP ?

I used to really like it, but not keen now. It's very granny-chic, which means it will date badly. Also, I don't think it's very versatile as there are no real nn opportunities.

Love it! It was my nan's name and my friend used it for her DD (now 3). I think it's classic, with personality.

I've got a baby one! So far DH has called her Nance and Nancy-pants. Obvs I LOVE it.

Lovely name.

I like it. My only hesitation is whether people would nickname her Nan, but I don't know how likely that is.

I love it and wanted it for DD but DH vetoed it.

But I love it!

Tis a close relative's name. She hates it. She was teased horribly about it - but is from a different generation, so that might not happen anymore.

I can't say I'm a fan.

I have a Nancy. She's 10 and cheeky and sunny and awesome.

Funnily enough, I had a wobble about her name just before she was born, but stuck with it. I'm glad, because she couldn't be anything else.

Dreadful name. Boring, dated, and frumpy.

Dab just had a little girl at the weekend and she is Nancy smile I was initially a bit skeptical but I've come round to it

I love this name, it was my aunt's name - she was beautiful, joyful, capable and all eyes were on her when she danced. A terrifically
memorable aunt.

I think it's lovely! I was thinking about this name the other day for if I have another DD smile

I don't find it feminine at all, sorry

DramaAlpaca Mon 13-Mar-17 11:38:03

I don't like it at all, sorry.

Gummibears Mon 13-Mar-17 11:43:12

It also doesn't travel well into other languages, which may or may not bother you.

Love it if wanted to use it but ex said no

MamaHanji Mon 13-Mar-17 12:38:36

I love it.

Neither of my children are often called by their real name anyway! My Alice is called squish and my Eliza is called num num. Don't ask me why. I have no idea.
