I love the meaning of this name and the fact that it’s the name of my special saint.

Any thoughts?

Sea witch

Basketofkittens Mon 21-Oct-19 21:58:46

Noooooo she’s a beautiful saint and it also means little she bear - thanks to Poldark for that one!

I love it and still wish we'd used it for dd2, but was vetoed by dh. It would have suited her perfectly too!

Fat purple sea witch

Your child will be a sea witch to everyone else sorry. Little mermaid is too popular for people not to make that connection 😅

RosaRi Mon 21-Oct-19 22:03:18

I’m sorry but little mermaid really puts me off

EmmaGrundyForPM Mon 21-Oct-19 22:04:24

I think it's a beautiful name.
I've not seen the Little Mermaid film.though

Sea Witch 🧙‍♀️ for me too......

HopefulFor2020 Mon 21-Oct-19 22:06:11

I don't have any strong feelings about the name either way, it definitely has Little Mermaid connections for me though. Isn't the live action version coming out next year as well? Could be pretty bad timing

SadSongsAndWaltzes Mon 21-Oct-19 22:06:17

Also, she may be a fat purple sea witch but she has the best song in all of Disney grin

It's a great name op imo.

bridgetreilly Mon 21-Oct-19 22:08:06

Yes, lovely.

Just reminds me of FRIENDS - I didn't know about any other associations.

It's not my style of name, I don't really like it, but I don't think it's awful!

Zampa Mon 21-Oct-19 22:26:21

I LOVE IT ♥️

Little mermaid or George is the jungle.
I don't think it's a particularly nice name to say either.

LadyGAgain Mon 21-Oct-19 22:27:23

Fat ugly sea witch. Sorry! The meaning you describe is beautiful but it doesn't roll off the tongue and sounds rather cumbersome.

Floralnomad Mon 21-Oct-19 22:28:34

It is our guinea pigs name , I really like it .

Whoops75 Mon 21-Oct-19 22:29:42

Awful name and definitely not due a comeback.

PantTwizzler Mon 21-Oct-19 22:29:44

I think it’s such a sweet name, but some people pronounce it “Ur-soo-la” instead of “Ur-syoo-la” which would annoy me.

DramaAlpaca Tue 22-Oct-19 02:03:52

It's an ugly name, and I can't see what's nice about the meaning, 'she bear', at all confused

FunOnTheBeach20 Tue 22-Oct-19 02:05:13

Terrible.

MrsBertBibby Tue 22-Oct-19 07:05:20

Love it.

Ursula Le Guin!

Clangus00 Tue 22-Oct-19 07:25:00

Nope. It’s either Phoebe’s not nice sister or evil, purple sea witch from The little mermaid.

I’m afraid it reminds me of ulcer
