Thoughts on Natalie?

I'm expecting a baby due around Xmas time and I love this name. It's a family name and is very sentimental to me.

I do like the variant Natalia but it just doesn't work with my other DC's names (too frilly/fancy) so it would really have to be Natalie.

What do you think?

Very very dated

I like it and although there aren't many young Natalies about (although I do know a lovely 16 year old one), I don't think it is dated like a lot of names from the 70s/80s are. It is more of a classic than a faddy name.

I think it's a lovely name. Much nicer than Violet, Ivy, Olive etc which always feature on threads on here.

It's pretty and unusual nowadays. Just check you like the nn Nat though

MillieMoodle Sat 01-Jul-17 13:03:33

I like it!

It's beautiful. Go for it!

I wouldn't worry about fashion, because it's impossible to know what the fashions in names will be when she's adult. By then, it might be incredibly fashionable again, and even if it isn't, it doesn't matter.

Absolutely love it!

It was on my short list for DD, but DH wouldn't consider it hmm.

We did meet a little Natalie at Tumble Tots when DD was around 2 or 3 - I just remember feeling quite jealous that somebody else had been allowed to use it grin.

nn doesn't have to be Nat (although I like Nat). You could also use Ali.

I like it.

bridgetreilly Sat 01-Jul-17 13:53:43

Talie or Tally are also good shortened forms. If you like it, use it!

You don't come across many baby Natalie's! !

BeTheHokeyMan Sat 01-Jul-17 15:55:36

I really like it flowers

Bubblesoup Sat 01-Jul-17 16:14:05

I love it! We almost called DD1 it! The only reason we didn't is because we're not keen on Nat as a nn.

I love it, not very common these days.

DramaAlpaca Sat 01-Jul-17 16:19:28

I think it's lovely. Go for it!

Sophronia Sat 01-Jul-17 16:35:24

It is a bit dated, but would be refreshing nowadays among all the Evies and Lilys.

Solid, traditional name.

SpuriouserAndSpuriouser Sat 01-Jul-17 16:44:19

I love it!

KoalaDownUnder Sun 02-Jul-17 18:19:59

No. Very dated. And I don't even like the sound, personally.

KarineAimee Sun 02-Jul-17 20:37:27

Lovely name. If you love it, go for it!

MadreTranquillitatis Sun 02-Jul-17 20:46:56

Gorgeous name!

3littlebadgers Sun 02-Jul-17 20:56:18

I think it is a lovely name star

MyDressIsBold Sun 02-Jul-17 21:01:29

I know two baby Natalies - I think it is a lovely name, especially for Christmas time.

No. Its Eastenders connotations override everything else for me. Sorry.
