Honest opinions on Shay for a baby girl please

NotWeavingButDarning Tue 05-Dec-17 11:17:38

No. Awful. Sorry.

Sirzy Tue 05-Dec-17 11:18:08

I have never heard it for a girl. It’s popular locally for boys but even then not my cup of tea

chiaseeddisapointmentagain Tue 05-Dec-17 11:18:25

I've heard a lot worse on here.

Shay is a very popular Indian boy’s name.

RavingRoo Tue 05-Dec-17 11:18:56

As is Jay

I know a few boys called shay. My friend called her little girl Shayla

People will just associate it with Tirion's whore. Not what you want them to be thinking of...

Erica891 Tue 05-Dec-17 11:21:57

Nope. Maybe Shayla or Shayna, latter pronounced as "sha-i-na"

AllRoadsLeadBackToRadley Tue 05-Dec-17 11:24:49

Shay Mitchell (PLL). Her "Shay" is short for Shannon though.

FrancisCrawford Tue 05-Dec-17 11:28:14

Really don’t like it at all

planbatman Tue 05-Dec-17 11:35:36

Depends where you are OP.
Shay/Shea/Sé is a popular boys name in Ireland.

Mrsknackered Tue 05-Dec-17 11:36:28

I knew quite a few boy and girls Shay/shea's (School years in south east london)

I prefer it for a boy, but if you love it, use it. I would spell it Shea though smile

Kursk Tue 05-Dec-17 11:57:41

Shay no unless it’s short for Shantae. In which case I would shorten to Tay.

PersianCatLady Tue 05-Dec-17 11:59:12

I have only ever heard someone called Shay when it is their surname.

Tubbyinthehottub Tue 05-Dec-17 11:59:34

I only know it as short for Seamus.

NataliaOsipova Tue 05-Dec-17 12:00:01

Awful - sorry!

Whythesnoring Tue 05-Dec-17 13:46:44

Not a fan sorry

Smoliver Tue 05-Dec-17 15:18:19

I like it. Think it's a good unisex name for a girl

thepatchworkcat Tue 05-Dec-17 15:20:16

Have only come across it as a boy’s name.

Patal Tue 05-Dec-17 17:27:35

I love Shay but have a little cousin called Shae so out of the question for me.
I’ve known little girls called Shay as a nn for Shaylee/Shaylee and Shayla

SylviaTietjens Tue 05-Dec-17 17:28:32

Wasn’t there a prostitute in GoT called Shay?

Wishfulmakeupping Tue 05-Dec-17 17:29:16

Thought it was a boys name

badg3r Tue 05-Dec-17 17:34:46

I like the way it sounds but not how it looks. The Shea spelling reminds me of shea butter too.

17caterpillars1mouse Tue 05-Dec-17 17:58:40

Ive only ever known male Shea's. I'm not a fan at all though on either or not it girl spelt either Shea or Shay
