I like it, it's classic. smile

Love it

HeteronormativeHaybales Sat 16-Dec-17 14:42:16

I like it and considered it as a middle name for dd. Get her a copy of Swallows and Amazons when she's older. smile

WunWun Sat 16-Dec-17 14:42:24

I think it's horrendous, personally.

I love it too!

I know a really cute Nancy at my son's school so I like it!

Tinselistacky Sat 16-Dec-17 14:43:10

Love it!!

I love it! Are you still pregnant? Because people are very quick to judge names unless you've given it to your gorgeous little baby! Then they have to say it's lovely! smile

flyingtnx Sat 16-Dec-17 14:45:23

I am pregnant not aware of gender as of yet so that is my first choice for a girl smile

DD Is trying for a baby and apparently couldn’t imagine giving her child an name as horrible as Nancy!

I think it’s different which I love about it

SlowlyShrinking Sat 16-Dec-17 14:46:28

I really like it

BrutusMcDogface Sat 16-Dec-17 14:53:25

I made the mistake of telling my mum one name that I liked when I was pregnant. She scoffed at it so much, I then vowed not to tell a single soul any of our name choices thereafter! She was so annoyed that I wasn't discussing names with her, but it was her fault!

Fragglewump Sat 16-Dec-17 14:54:16

Love it!

flyingtnx Sat 16-Dec-17 14:56:18

Family especially seem to dislike the name! DM included! Said it is horrible, I think it’s a name that will suit the baby through all stages of life. Thought of it after watching Netflix’s show stranger things!

I'm not too keen on it personally. But I don't think there's actually anything wrong with it. It's just a like it or not keen. But it's certainly not awful.

flumpybear Sat 16-Dec-17 15:00:07

Not keen but don't worry, all that matters is you like it so go for it!

May50 Sat 16-Dec-17 15:00:30

Love it , go for it.

flyingtnx - I have a story for you Op. When I was pregnant with DT's I wanted Nancy as a name, husband really really didn't want it/like it, we didn't use it and instead picked 2 names we both agreed on BUT....... I have regretted it ever since!!! So please, for me, even though we will never meet, use it!!!!!

daisypond Sat 16-Dec-17 15:02:47

I quite like it. I do see it as a diminutive, though - it's a pet form of Anne - but it's been a name in its own right for a long time now. I always think of poor abused Nancy in Oliver Twist, so it's a bit of "servant" name to me. Mind you, ex PM Cameron's daughter is Nancy.

AssignedPuuurfectAtBirth Sat 16-Dec-17 15:05:04

Like it

flyingtnx Sat 16-Dec-17 15:05:18

DH isn’t too keen on the name either but I love it. We both like Sienna for a girl but I have my heart set on Nancy whereas he isn’t

ImminentDisaster Sat 16-Dec-17 15:06:17

I think it's really cute!

flyingtnx Sat 16-Dec-17 15:09:50

We do have our boys names chosen so hopefully we can stick with Nancy for girl. Husband likes Lorelai but I’m not sure (I think he has a secret love for Gilmore girls)grin

reminds me of a dear old aunt long since passed.... it's not a name commonly used... which makes it unique... fgrin
