This name makes me wish I could have another daughter. I never thought of it when I was having babies!

Picknickers Thu 09-Aug-18 22:32:24

I absolutely love it. Happy and sweet and punchy. I wouldn't use it though as a lot of people say it's a stripper name.

RedDwarves Fri 10-Aug-18 03:24:17

It's awful. Stripper name, for sure.

PremierNaps Fri 10-Aug-18 03:33:23

Makes me think stripper 😁

Urbanbeetler Fri 10-Aug-18 06:20:43

How to demonise something sweet!

BendydickCuminsnatch Fri 10-Aug-18 06:36:49

Love it but sadly could never use it because of all the stripper stuff! In reality it doesn’t seem to have affected Cherry Healy in her career. I think more unusual probably make people more memorable overall anyway!

TheDowagerCuntess Fri 10-Aug-18 06:37:51

Just no. It's a total fluff name.

TheDowagerCuntess Fri 10-Aug-18 06:38:15

As in, it's up there with Honey.

I know one aged eight. Awful name.

PinkCherryBlossomTree Fri 10-Aug-18 07:11:57

Makes me think of Cheery Littlebottom.

Quangot Fri 10-Aug-18 07:15:33

I like it as a nickname for Cheryl.

MadisonAvenue Fri 10-Aug-18 08:57:36

It’s awful.

OnlyFoolsnMothers Fri 10-Aug-18 10:58:17

I would think Hippie mother.

Chocolatecoffeeaddict Fri 10-Aug-18 11:02:52

I don't like it sorry. How about Sherie?

TidyDancer Fri 10-Aug-18 13:00:44

I really really love this. It's one of my absolute favourites but I would never use it because of the stripper comments.

ADastardlyThing Fri 10-Aug-18 13:24:58

Awful, just awful

MayFayner Fri 10-Aug-18 13:27:21

No, because of the slang connotations.

RavenWings Fri 10-Aug-18 14:41:58

Definitely a stripper name.

Jennyvenice Fri 10-Aug-18 14:46:05

Awful. Way too cutesy (and with stripper-y connotations). Would not translate well into adulthood.

TheHalfBloodPrincess Fri 10-Aug-18 15:55:35

I really like it! If Ds2 had have been a girl, he would have been called Ceirios, which is Welsh for Cherry grin

LoveInTokyo Fri 10-Aug-18 16:37:06

Horrible.

SumAndSubstance Fri 10-Aug-18 16:49:24

I once had a teacher whose name was Cherry. How we laughed when we found that out! There was nothing sweet about her, mind you.

SemperIdem Fri 10-Aug-18 18:30:45

I don’t like it however do know an adult one. She’s not a stripper, she’s a scientist.

GreatDuckCookery Fri 10-Aug-18 18:39:08

Sorry not keen either. It's seems very dated to me probably because of Cheryl.

MikeUniformMike Fri 10-Aug-18 18:45:00

I think it's way better than Sherie, which i've not seen before.
It could be short for Cherith if you want the obligatory MN-approved BC name.
I also like Sherri, short for Sherrin. I know it's a surname.
