What do you think of Enid for a girl? I think it sounds strong and fits in well with the granny chic style around at the moment. It also makes me think I the author whose books I loved as a child.

Any thoughts? Do you know any?

I love it and would use it but my partner isn't as keen. He prefers Astrid.

I quite like it and its got to be due a comeback soon. Also loved Enid Blyton books.

I've never met one but do really like it.

One of the ugliest names in existence. Enid blyton was horrifically racist as well. Not a great association for your daughter.

I love it but my OH vetoed, there is a little Enid on our street and I'm still a bit jealous when I hear her name being called! (though Enid Blyton wasn't really a very nice person - or so I read!)

I like it. Makes me think of Mildred Hubble’s best friend in the Worst Witch series! DC3 is reading the books at the moment...

Honestly - I think of the cat from Hey Duggee.

I think it's great for a cat, but I'm not so keen for a little girl, to my ears it's a bit whiny.

Astrid is great knittingteapot!

I like it.

I love the name.

A little off topic but relevant and funny.

There are some people who think Enid Blyton's name is Gnid 😂😂😂

Love it

Poor kid.

I like old fashioned 'Granny' names but I'm not keen on Enid. Prefer Edith.

Love it. Cool independent young woman in The Walking Dead

It reminds me of the Worst Witch too (which I still watch aged 39 to my shame). I can't decide if I like it or not as somehow it conjures up an image of snails for me (I have weird word associations though).

But sod what other people think, if you like it - you like it.

FreezerBird Tue 20-Mar-18 17:13:36

You'd be forever explaining (unless you're in Wales) but I prefer the Welsh pronunciation which is with a short E, so Enn-id rather than Ee-nid.

PeterRabbitEatingHisCarrot Tue 20-Mar-18 17:14:58

It’s okay. A bit plain.

PuppyMonkey Tue 20-Mar-18 17:15:57

It’s a no from me, don’t do it OP.

FluffyMcCloud Tue 20-Mar-18 17:17:59

I love it! But my daughters have "granny chic" names grin

PelvicFloorClenchReminder Tue 20-Mar-18 17:19:38

I love Enid.

Hotpinkangel19 Tue 20-Mar-18 17:19:47

It looks ugly to me. Sorry

Pancakeflipper Tue 20-Mar-18 17:22:10

I like it.
Wasnt the best friend of Elizabeth Wakefield in Sweet Valley High called Enid?

PuppyMonkey Tue 20-Mar-18 17:25:26

It’s not granny chic, it’s on a par with Doreen or Beryl to me confused

bridgetreilly Tue 20-Mar-18 17:30:49

Enn-id or Ee-nid?

Ohyesiam Tue 20-Mar-18 17:32:57

Ugly to me I’m afraid.
