I like the nickname Immy, but not the name Imogen particularly as there area fair few around her. However, I have never heard of a young Imelda and I love the meaning - powerful warrior woman. What do you think?

*a fair few around here

Surely Marcos is the obvious problem.

Great name IMO

I would always think of the dictator's wife

How about Simone (Immy).

It's fine. Eva Braun has hardly resulted in Eva being unpopular

LOve it, mind you I loved Imogen and didn't use it as there were squillions about, but then I think I started the whole Eve/Evie/Eva thing!

Imelda Staunton!

Not for me - am afraid it's lumped into the nun names along with Concepta, Assumpta and those that liked to think patent shoes were the work of the devil.

My first thought was Imelda May, not Marcos. I think it's a great name.

I don't like it at all. It sounds like something you'd hear in Harry Potter.

I love it. Only known one Imelda who was everything i wanted my dds to be. Funny,clever,responsible,well liked, an all round good'un.
