What do you think about the name? My husband likes Lainey, so this is the more formal name.

I think it's a surname. Don't like it as a first name, especially if it's for a girl.

Ridiculous but I expect it's the name of a character in some American teen drama

ErrolTheDragon Sat 01-Apr-17 22:35:46

it reminds me of one of my mother's party pieces, which was reciting a version of Delaney's Chicken .

It's a Irish surname.

I'd have thought the more formal form of 'Lainey' was Elaine?

As Errol says it's an Irish surname.

It's awful as a first name.

Just go with Lainey if you like it.

Guess you haven't been watching Taboo, then?

I know it as a surname so wouldnt use it as a first name

I like Lainey. I think Delaney works as a middle name but I wouldn't use it as a first name, just go for Lainey on its own.

Delaney isn't bad but i love Elaina/Laney

Imaginingdragonsagain Sat 01-Apr-17 22:43:21

I wouldn't.

Boy?
Girl?

Puppy?

What about Elena or something similar? My DD is Laina and we use Lainey for a nn. That said if you really like Delaney and it goes with the surname, why not.

Madelaine (Lainey).

Much prefer Elena/ Elaina/Laine/Layne

I love Delaney but only because I know a Delaney.

Friends of ours are also considering it for a first name for their son

I like it. I know it's a sur name but like Bellamy, it's attractive.

I havent watched whatever showe the pp mentioned though. If it's a character in a show that would put me off. Della just Della is nice.

NavyandWhite Mon 03-Apr-17 22:05:28

No way. It's a surname.
