Do you think she would have to be born in April? Really loving this name but not due then, would that be weird?

No, not at all, lovely name.

(DM is another month, born November, not an issue)

Ah this is currently the name my husband and I like for our next girl (not pregnant, just like to plan)! I really like it but I'm wondering the same as you.
Mind you, the name May is used a lot these days. My little girl's middle name is Mae and she was born in June - I think if you like it then you use it!

There's a little girl in my dds class with this name they're 7. She is born in April but didn't realise until last year ! Very nice name
My dsis named her baby summer and she was born in October !

I think it's a lovely name, and I don't think you should only use it for April born babies.

I'm not keen on April, to me it's a Janet, Shirley, Brenda, Diane type of name. I don't think a baby has to be born in April to be named it however.

I once know a Winter-May born in July.

An April not born in April is barely a blip on my radar... grin

I love the name April.

I don’t think the birth month matters at all.

FreeNiki Wed 21-Feb-18 10:13:58

I know an April. She was born in April but you don't have to be.

It's cute. Go for it.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Wed 21-Feb-18 10:20:13

Lovely name.

Gates Wed 21-Feb-18 10:41:31

Love it !!

Aprilshowerswontbelong Wed 21-Feb-18 10:44:14

Lovely unless your surname is Showers!! grin

MikeUniformMike Wed 21-Feb-18 13:31:35

or if your surname is May

RavenWings Wed 21-Feb-18 19:30:19

Love it.

TulipsInABlueVase Wed 21-Feb-18 22:29:32

Yes, she would have to be born in April! I think it's crazy to use it for a baby not born in April.

Foxedme Wed 21-Feb-18 22:34:53

I teach a sweet little girl called April, it's really made me like the name. I don't think she was born in April though.

windchimesabotage Wed 21-Feb-18 22:36:28

I like April and Avril and I dont think you would need to be born in that month. I love month names. Apparently November is starting to be used as a girls name... think that is lovely!

littlebillie Wed 21-Feb-18 22:36:46

Avril is nice too

MikeUniformMike Wed 21-Feb-18 22:38:42

Avril is horrible. Makes me think of Bovril.

Pretty name. I think it's less twee if she isn't born in April.

HuskyMcClusky Thu 22-Feb-18 00:47:40

Oh yes, please not Avril!

DramaAlpaca Thu 22-Feb-18 00:55:08

I'd think it was odd if she wasn't born in that month tbh.

HuskyMcClusky Thu 22-Feb-18 00:58:45

Really?! Genuinely surprised. Wouldn’t occur to me that an April/May/June was necessarily born in their name month. I just think of them as names.

Aprilshowerswontbelong Thu 22-Feb-18 09:00:51

I have known 2 June's. I born June and one born August!!
