Thoughts on Ivy? Do you know any and is it too Blue Ivy (beyonce) ?

I love it. I think it's a beautiful name and I didn't think of Beyoncé at all.
I had two aunts called Ivy when I was growing up, and I was very attached to one of them. Ivy I was born in 189-something, and Ivy B in 1920; I dont know any modern Ivys.

Love it, but it's very popular where I am (Australia) now. It was number 14 in 2016.

I don't think it's too Beyonce, owing to its popularity.

I like it a lot! It is becoming increasingly popular though (I know many under 1!) and it was predicated to be one of the biggest climbers up the charts. But if popularity doesn't bother you go for it-I don't think of Beyoncé either.

I don't think Beyoncé. I love it. I only know one who is 15 and named after her grandmother.
My sister was going to be Ivy, but my dad thought it was too popular and they went with Evie instead, lots of 'oooh that's unusual'. Now look at how many there are!

Love it!

ChocolateCrunch Sun 17-Sep-17 11:42:18

I know one, but I think it's becoming more popular. Don't think about the Beyonce connection personally.

I love it. It was my grandmother's name and she hated it, which must have influenced me as I now wish I'd used it for DD.

I think Ivy is awful. Ivy is a persistent weed that you try your best to kill off. It's getting very popular now, though, as a name.

lesliekae Sun 17-Sep-17 12:50:48

popularity does put me off a bit but any name could become super popular! any middle name suggestions? smile

SumAndSubstance Sun 17-Sep-17 13:14:02

I agree with daisypond, it's just such a horrible plant!

ThisIsReallyFunny Sun 17-Sep-17 13:18:58

Love it

PressPaws Sun 17-Sep-17 13:20:55

I love Ivy and would have used it for DC2 but it's too close to DC1's name. And DC2 turned out to be a boy anyway!

I like Ivy Sophia, Ivy Alice, Ivy Adeline, and Ivy Seren. But does depend on your surname.

Sophronia Sun 17-Sep-17 13:22:44

It's ok. I prefer Iris though.

Idratherhaveacupoftea Sun 17-Sep-17 13:36:56

My auntie was an Ivy and loathed it.

bridgetreilly Sun 17-Sep-17 13:39:43

I think it's lovely as a name and a plant! I've never tried to kill off the ivy in my garden and don't really know why anyone would.

i prefer Iris too but cant use it sad I love Ivy but i am a bit worried for the reason that some people hate the plant (or weed) !

PandorasXbox Sun 17-Sep-17 17:55:08

I irrationally dislike it. All I can think of is poisoned Ivy of Corrie.

mummytwoh Tue 19-Sep-17 21:20:14

I adore it - it's on my list for my Christmas baby.

LostwithSawyer Tue 19-Sep-17 21:30:56

It's very pretty. I don't think of the plant.
Any name can become popular.

Horrible weed
How about Primrose?

maitaimojito Wed 20-Sep-17 16:31:51

I like the sound of it but I hate the plant. I’d also be worried about references to ‘poison Ivy’.

holidayqueriwifi Wed 20-Sep-17 16:34:02

When I think of Ivy, I don't think of poison ivy at all! Don't over think it. It's cute and increasingly popular.

Nothing wrong with it as a name, you might like Bryony.
