We are pretty much settled on Eden for our DD's first name but what is everyone's thoughts on Bloom for her middle name?

I absolutely love it I just need to convince DH!

It's fine. It sounds familiar to me somehow but can't for the life of me think why?

I love the name Eden.

WinnieRose1 Tue 22-Oct-19 11:56:39

DH googled it and there are a few florist called Eden Bloom, that may be why its familiar!

Surly there are worst shops to be named after!

Lilyannarose Tue 22-Oct-19 12:15:23

Go for it. I think it's lovely. x

Eden is c***vy and Bloom is bloomin awful.

Eden is overused but ok - not with Bloom though. It isn't a name and sounds like an ad for the Eden project.

Eden sounds like it could be a sanitary towel name.
Bloom = blooming = blimmin

Eden is a traditionally boy's name and still in use for boys.I suggest you need something less surnamey in the middle , unless of course your aim is a masculine name.

Not a fan, bit like a character name from a cheesy chick-lit...
Each to their own though.
And congrats on your little girl flowers

Ghastly sorry

Bloom is a Jewish surname. It sounds very surnamey to me.

How about Eden Blossom? Or another floral name....

bridgetreilly Tue 22-Oct-19 13:55:22

Sounds like an air freshener to me.

BreastedBoobilyToTheStairs Tue 22-Oct-19 13:57:07

It sounds like a paint colour or air freshener to me, sorry Op. Its very twee.

Shadow1234 Tue 22-Oct-19 18:20:00

Eden is lovely, but not keen on Bloom.

PlasticPatty Tue 22-Oct-19 18:25:03

One of his?

Shoutymomma Tue 22-Oct-19 18:25:17

Eden - yes.
Bloom - dear gawd no.

FawnDrench Tue 22-Oct-19 18:31:44

Sounds like a powder blusher shade from the 1960s.

daisypond Tue 22-Oct-19 19:06:22

Eden is OK but not alongside Bloom. It’s too paint/air freshener.

MrsAgassi Tue 22-Oct-19 19:17:30

Sorry, sounds like the name Glade would give one of their air fresheners.

Cbeebiesrehab Tue 22-Oct-19 19:31:56

I like it. I like one syllable names for girls and Bloom feminises Eden which is traditionally a male name. Think it will be marmite on here though.

WinnieRose1 Tue 22-Oct-19 20:13:29

You've all made DH very happy! Boooo

But I do all get what you all mean, back to the drawing board then

Krisskrosskiss Tue 22-Oct-19 20:19:33

Eden is gorgeous... I'm not so sure about Bloom though. Maybe try a flower /plant name?
Iris, Dittany, Willow, Rose, Lily or Jonqil?

Spied Tue 22-Oct-19 20:21:02

Sounds pretentious.
Will a grown-up Eden Bloom thank you for your great choice when choosing her name?
I wouldn't.

Krisskrosskiss Tue 22-Oct-19 20:22:13

*Jonquil sorry not Jonqil

HoneyandSpice Tue 22-Oct-19 20:25:34

Love it! Go for it. I had Eden down for a first name for my DD / DS (we didn't know what we were having)
