Ooh I like Aspen. I think Maddie is nice but it needs a "full name", it's a bit too nicknamey on its own (my name is Maddy but it's short for something). Aspen is really pretty.

I personally really dislike Maddie (I'm actually not sure why. It's probably kind of irrational/me being silly...). But Aspen is lovely smile

Not keen on either, sorry. blush Aspen if I really had to choose.

Are you an American teenage girl?

Maddie sounds faddy (and I didn't even mean for that to rhyme) and Aspen sounds like it will be the next Chelsea.

Maddie (but I'd use Madeleine).

No to both from me. Sorry to generalise but I get sense of USA or well off people in South East of England with one of those small trucks and another child called Tyler.

Maddie smile

Don't like either but Aspen

NappingRabbit Wed 19-Apr-17 13:03:35

I'd use Madeleine nn Maddie.

Hberries Wed 19-Apr-17 17:35:11

Agree with NappingRabbit. Potential nicknames for Aspen would really put me off.

Aspen sounds like it will be the next Chelsea

Agree with this^^ (sorry to anyone named Chelsea, or Aspen for that matter). Nothing wrong with those names, just not my cup of tea. I know Aspen is a tree as well as a place, but I think some people will assume the place first.

Maddie is fine, but does sound like a nn. I like Madeleine with nn Maddie, but if you don't, then Maddie is fine on its own.

Yeah Aspen is a bit, um, 'look how worldly I am' in a tragically Beckham kinda way. Sorry. I suspect it is about to take off and there will be a zillion of them. It'll be like when Neighbour's started and every girl baby was called Kylie. It's a pretty name, and makes a very pleasing sound, but is going to be the equivalent of Sharon and Tracy in twenty years.

Madeleine is beautiful, now we have almost got away from the McCann link. Traditional rather than contemporary is almost always better.

I dislike the "places names as baby names" trend personally, and if I saw the name Aspen I'd assume it was a boy. It just sounds masculine to me, like Austin.

Do you watch a lot of My 4 Wives, OP?

FeedTheSharkAndItWIllBite Wed 19-Apr-17 22:01:31


My four wives? :=0

TroysMammy Wed 19-Apr-17 22:03:35

When ever I hear the name Aspen I always think back to the film Dumb and Dumber where Jim Carey hisses "Aspen".

buttercup54321 Wed 19-Apr-17 22:06:12

Disike both. Asphalt Alpen cereal or aspirin. Maddie McCann. Maybe think again,

FeedTheSharkAndItWIllBite Wed 19-Apr-17 22:08:38

I do like Aspen. But, tbh, the name does remind me of a snake, for some (probably super weird!) reason...?

But I do think it's nicer than Maddie.

SuperBeagle Wed 19-Apr-17 22:12:34

Aspen is godawful. Especially if you've never been to Aspen.

Maddie is fine. I like it more as a nickname, but it's fine as a standalone name too.

YoungYolandaYorgensen39 Wed 19-Apr-17 22:13:32

I like nature names and Aspen is pretty but risks Aspie as a nickname. Or Ass-pen. Sorry to point that out.

Hazel, Willow, Fern?

Maddy is okay but Madeleine is better.

Anotherdayanotherdollar Wed 19-Apr-17 22:16:58

I would assume aspen was a male name..?

SingingSands Wed 19-Apr-17 22:19:42

I thought Aspen was a boys name?

It's quite harsh sounding.

user1492757084 Fri 21-Apr-17 10:01:10

I think Aston is more classy than Aspen.
... only because I know a gorgeous 24 year old Aston.
Madeleine is also very lovely.
