Starting to think of names for our little girl, currently 35 weeks. What are all of your opinions of the name Naomi? I love it but have had mixed reactions from friends/family

Marioki Mon 23-Apr-18 22:18:01

I really like it. Very pretty but not too twee.

DramaAlpaca Mon 23-Apr-18 22:18:50

I love it.

Lovely name.

Jaimx86 Mon 23-Apr-18 22:20:23

I love it. My number one choice for a girl.

I had a friend called Naomi who hated it because backwards it spells I moan.

Love it!

I like that name, other names I like are Sarah, Amy, Emma (very popular at the minute I hear) Louise, Bethany it's so difficult to choose a name isn't it!

I really like it.

It's an okay name. I'm indifferent towards it.

Padfootprongs Mon 23-Apr-18 22:38:34

Don't love it to be honest. Have noticed people also have trouble pronouncing if

RedDwarves Mon 23-Apr-18 22:40:51

I love it, but don't like when people pronounce it "NY-oh-mee" instead of "NAY-oh-mee", so I wouldn't use it for that reason.

EmmaC78 Mon 23-Apr-18 22:41:24

I love it too. One of my favourite girls names.

LoveInTokyo Mon 23-Apr-18 22:46:07

I like it but some idiots people will mistakenly pronounce it Ny-omi.

Pannacott Mon 23-Apr-18 22:47:32

I love it, I know some ace Naomis.

Sophronia Mon 23-Apr-18 22:48:09

Nice

scrivette Mon 23-Apr-18 22:55:59

One of my favourite names.

jaimelannistersgoldenhand Mon 23-Apr-18 22:56:01

Ironic that @LoveInTokyo finds the Japanese pronunciation stupid. (It's technically Na-oh-mee rather than Ny-oh-mee in Japan but hey ho)

RedDwarves Mon 23-Apr-18 22:58:14

jaime Yes, but I doubt the people Love is talking about are Japanese. hmm That argument might have some more weight if we were all in Japan.

mummabubs Mon 23-Apr-18 23:04:59

I love it, but then I am one, so a little biased!

ClaudiaWankleman Mon 23-Apr-18 23:05:23

I really like it, and don't mind which pronunciation.

It has good meanings in Hebrew and Japanese too.

LoveInTokyo Mon 23-Apr-18 23:06:17

No idea what you are talking about, jaime. confused

PodgeBod Mon 23-Apr-18 23:29:24

I really like it but I pronounce it Ny-oh-mee so am obviously an idiot and my opinion can't be trusted.
