What does everyone think of this name?

ItchySeveredFoot Thu 26-Oct-17 00:18:49

Like the book? Seriously?

I don't think you can, sorry.

What about Lalita?

Have you heard of Nabokov?! I wouldn't.

I think of the book Lolita.

The associations linked with the novel mean its not a name I like for an actual child.

Hahah.

Good one.

Or have you heard the Police song?

Is this a competition?

I thought Aryan last week was a clear winner...

On reflection I still think I'd rather be named after the creation of a paedo-apologist than a Nazi ideal. So yes - Aryan has it <bangs gavel>

Errr

ItchySeveredFoot Thu 26-Oct-17 00:25:06

Oh yeah Aryan was ridiculous!

It has a pretty sound, and in Spain, it's a perfectly normal short form for Dolores. But in English speaking countries it's only associated with the book/films really, and it's not a pleasant association - I don't think it's usable really.

Potterhead113 Thu 26-Oct-17 00:29:38

Oh shit sorry didn’t realise it was a book

ItchySeveredFoot Thu 26-Oct-17 00:30:15

hmm

ladybirdsaredotty Thu 26-Oct-17 00:34:26

Where did you hear of the name, then? confused

Topseyt Thu 26-Oct-17 01:15:05

No! Just don't.

SyrilSneer Thu 26-Oct-17 01:31:30

I know a doctor called Lolita! Not a good name.

Csd17 Thu 26-Oct-17 01:57:37

What about Lola instead? It doesn’t have the same adult sexually obsessed with adolescent connotations

Cavender Thu 26-Oct-17 02:06:40

The very first thing you do when choosing a name for your child is google it surely?

MsPasspartout Thu 26-Oct-17 02:59:54

Can’t say I ever googled my DC’s names. I can’t agree that googling potential names is the first thing one would do.

Caprinihahahaha Thu 26-Oct-17 03:10:31

I can't believe anyone has not heard of Lolita nor understands the conotations tbh

Reppin Thu 26-Oct-17 03:28:06

I love it. In my culture it is a diminutive, and very very pretty. Sadly it was used in a novel about child sexual abuse and it seems that people will always associate the victim with negative traits surrounding sexuality. ^^

SuperBeagle Thu 26-Oct-17 04:01:10

Absolutely not. You cannot do that to a child.

Sophronia Thu 26-Oct-17 07:09:20

Too associated with the book. Lola is more usable.

What about Elita?
