Hi ladies. I've lurked for ages but now I'm finally pregnant have decided to join!

I've a while to go, but dreamt around 5 months ago (before I was even pregnant) of the name Dixie for a girl and havent been able to shake it since.

My partner likes it too but I'm not sure if it's just the fact I dreamed of it taking over for me. Also toying with Daisy.

Honest thoughts please? Surname is Dark if that helps!!

Prefer Daisy Dark to Dixie Dark.

Cant say I like Dixie and especially not with the surname Dark. Sorry not helpful.

sonlypuppyfat Sun 21-May-17 20:48:48

Daisy is lovely Dixie isn't, sorry

OpalTree Sun 21-May-17 20:49:24

I wouldn't because of the Dicks sound. Dotty short for Charlotte?

LurkerNoLonger Sun 21-May-17 20:49:26

No worries at all, the more honest the better smile

I just love the D names at the moment to roll with Dark - which is a lot easier for girls than boys!

OpalTree Sun 21-May-17 20:49:56

Sorry didn't see Daisy was an option. I like that.

I'd be awfully worried about mean kids shortening it to Dick.

Rockaby Sun 21-May-17 20:50:39

Pixie Dark?

I like Pixie but not Dixie. I also like Daisy Dark.

I know a little Dixie and she really suits her name! I wasn't sure when her name was announced but it has really grown on me, go for it if you love it smile

I like Dixie! And I like the DD name. I have an SS.

What about Delilah? Delilah Dark sounds cool. Or Dahlia (pronounced Day-lee-uh.

EmpressOfTheSpartacusOceans Sun 21-May-17 20:53:18

I'd go with Daisy Dark.

I'd be worried about the dick sound in Dixie too, and Dotty is a nasty thing to do to a child.

bigredboat Sun 21-May-17 20:53:26

It makes me think 'Dixie Normous', sorry OP!

skyzumarubble Sun 21-May-17 20:54:05

I like Dixie but not sure it works with Dark

EachandEveryone Sun 21-May-17 20:54:09

Prefer Pixie.Dotty isn't short for Charlotte surely?

spankhurst Sun 21-May-17 20:57:56

People of a certain age will thinkmof Daisy Duke, if that bothers you. It was the first thing that I thought of. Dixie just sounds a bit...non-name.

ScarlettDarling Sun 21-May-17 20:58:22

I think it's very cute but not sure that it sounds like a real name!


Badgoushk Sun 21-May-17 20:58:40

I think a 4 syllable name sounds very elegant with Dark. Eg,
Elizabeth Dark
Hermione Dark
Arabella Dark
Amelia Dark

Daisy dark is too near Daisy Duck for me.

Reow Sun 21-May-17 21:00:48

Dixie has beer, shit country band and American Civil War connotations.

I wouldn't use it. Love Daisy though.

AlcoholAndIrony Sun 21-May-17 21:02:43

Love the name Dixie but Dixie Dark sounds like a marvel superhero to me. Sorry.

Whereisthecake Sun 21-May-17 21:03:14

I instantly thought Dick See Dark.. which just seemed weird. Daisy is nice x

JoanRamone Sun 21-May-17 21:03:22

What about Beatrix and shorten it to Trixie?
Daisy Dark makes me think of Daisy Duck, Donald's girlfriend.
Also might inspire the nickname 'double D' and with Dixie as the first name I just think it's a double whammy of potential innuendos.

Oh god no the alliteration is horrendous
