I've been trying out a few names in my head recently and for one reason or another, these have been sticking - so looking for any thoughts you might have! I have others I like as well, but will just stick with these to make it simpler.

Rania/Raina (different yes, but I like both)

I suppose one of my biggest questions is are some of them too tied to famous people (the Queen of Jordan, Princess Di and that Teen Mom woman)?

I really like Diana.

KeiraC Fri 27-Oct-17 22:50:14

Farrah for me

Argeles Fri 27-Oct-17 22:56:13

Farrah and Raina are lovely.

GymBunnieWannabe Fri 27-Oct-17 22:57:11

I only like Bryony.

GymBunnieWannabe Fri 27-Oct-17 22:57:59

I thought Farrah Faucet and Princess Di. And just don't like Raina

Farrah - not a massive fan of this, but I don't hate this name.

Diana - love this name. Yes, I think of Princess Diana but I also think of Wonder Woman when I hear this name. It's a beautiful name and it has associations to two great female role models.

Rania/Raina - I haven't heard the name Rania but I like it. Raina though is on my shortlist, so I love it.

Bryony - I think this is cute. I knew someone at school with this name. I think it's classic but overlooked/underused.

I like Bryony (but prefer the Briony spelling) and Farrah.

I'm not massively keen on Diana but it's ok.

Like all the others a lot.

LadyWithLapdog Sat 28-Oct-17 00:32:11

Farrah and Diana

I really like Diana
Not overly keen on the others, I afraid.

All gorgeous, sorry not helpful

SleepingStandingUp Sat 28-Oct-17 01:33:23

Farrah - though of Mo
Diana -really dated imo
Rania/Raina (different yes, but I like both) - meh
Bryony - love it

I absolutely love Farrah. It's simply a lovely name. It means "beauty", "fortune", "joy", and "glory". Some might initially think of the actress Farrah Fawcet, but I certainly wouldn't mind that. She was a lovely, generous, caring person. Gorgeous name.

Aquamarine1029 Sat 28-Oct-17 02:28:06

To correct above, Farrah Fawcett.

17caterpillars1mouse Sat 28-Oct-17 12:15:47

Farrah - I know a little Farrah. I'm not a massive fan of it though

Diana - I quite like it. My first thought was actually Diana Vickers lol

Rania/Raina (different yes, but I like both) - dislike these but prefer Raina of the two I think

Bryony - I really like this. The only one I know is 15. She used to go by the nn Bree but uses Bryony now

My choices would be Bryony or Diana

Thewolfsjustapuppy Sat 28-Oct-17 12:18:25

I really like Diana, it’s a classic and also unusual but well known.

Thewolfsjustapuppy Sat 28-Oct-17 12:19:02

The only grown up Bryony’s I know all hate their names, without fail.

daisypond Sat 28-Oct-17 12:20:43

I like Diana the most. I quite like Bryony as well, but it reminds me of Brian, which puts me off it a bit.

Holdtightdontletgo Sat 28-Oct-17 12:21:59

Bryony for me

HeteronormativeHaybales Sat 28-Oct-17 12:23:21

They all feel very 80s to me. At a pinch I'd go with Bryony or Diana.

ImSoUnoriginal Sat 28-Oct-17 12:44:09

I don't like any of them. I'm not even sure why. I guess in part, for the association with famous people and partly, as someone else pointed out, that they sound a bit 80's. Just not to my taste I guess but that's just my opinion and others clearly like them. 😊

bridgetreilly Sat 28-Oct-17 14:10:32

Bryony is a beautiful name.

Diana, I think you can just about get away with these days, if you love it.

Rania/Raina, Farrah, I don't like at all.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sat 28-Oct-17 15:47:56

Rains is very lovely, and different, otherwise Diana.

BernardBlacksHangover Sat 28-Oct-17 17:38:42

I like Farrah and Bryony. I had Bryony on my list for DD, but I don't think DH was keen.

I'm not mad about Diana or Raina / Rania.
