Just after views on Anouk please: love it, hate it, couldn't care less either way?

Branleuse Fri 30-Jun-17 21:43:25

I really like it

FairyTreeHouse Fri 30-Jun-17 21:43:53

Love it.

JoWithABow Fri 30-Jun-17 21:44:27

For a boy I am presuming? Lovely name smile

Anouk and cranny

Not a fan

Serafinaaa Fri 30-Jun-17 21:45:37

It's a girls name. I like it.

JennyWreny Fri 30-Jun-17 21:46:23

It's the name of the little girl in the Chocolat books, isn't it? I really like it.

strongswans Fri 30-Jun-17 21:47:07

Beautiful girls name

This was in my top 5 if i had a girl. I love it.

LynetteScavo Fri 30-Jun-17 21:48:37

I do live it.

But would wonder if it was short for that just me being bonkers?

Anyway, I loved reading Chocolat and the sequels, so love the name smile

DuggeeHugs Fri 30-Jun-17 21:49:13

Sorry, yes, girls name!

I'd forgotten the Chocolat connection Jenny but it was a beautiful film smile

Love it and love Anoushka

RiverTam Fri 30-Jun-17 21:50:26

I know an Anouk. I'm not very keen on it, I find it a little harsh- sounding.

DuggeeHugs Fri 30-Jun-17 21:51:19

I believe it is a standalone name, rather than a shortening of Anoushka; happy to be shown otherwise though as I don't 100% trust some of the naming books I've read!

Meaning is grace.

It's the dog from The Lost Boys. Lovely name but has that connection for me.

FairyTreeHouse Fri 30-Jun-17 21:57:09

Think the dog's name is Nanouk, justdont.

DramaAlpaca Fri 30-Jun-17 21:59:54

To me it is a very harsh sounding, ugly name. Sorry, but I don't like it at all.

Alisvolatpropiis Fri 30-Jun-17 22:01:58

I love it

justdontevenfuckingstart Fri 30-Jun-17 22:05:37

Oh my god Fairy can't believe I got that wrong! The shame! Sorry op.

CherriesInTheSnow Fri 30-Jun-17 22:09:36

It's a beautiful name, absolutely lovely smile

Sugarpiehoneyeye Fri 30-Jun-17 22:30:57

I love it too.😄

hophop333 Fri 30-Jun-17 22:31:18

Bit too harsh I'm afraid

YesICanHearYouClemFandango Fri 30-Jun-17 22:39:23

I like it. I used to work with an Anouk, she was lovely.

ummlilia Fri 30-Jun-17 22:40:51

Makes me think of the French actress Anouk Aimee .

DuggeeHugs Fri 30-Jun-17 22:48:42

Thanks for all the replies! We've been struggling to find names we like individually, nevermind ones we actually agree on.

Since (re)discovering this name it's become a firm favourite for me but DH is unconvinced. If DC turns out to be a girl I'm hoping we can compromise on this as a middle name. Of course, we still won't have a first name...
