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!

Sounds like a boy's name to me - don't like it all - sorry!

Mary Eden is better

Eden Mary is nice

Sounds perfectly at home at the Eden project 🤷🏻‍♀️

I love the name Eden. Don't like bloom. Sorry

Eden is a ch**vy name IMO.
It's the name of a chain of bookmakers around here.

Well, yes I would have thought that goes without saying.
I live in a predominantly working class area, perhaps you have met young female Edens who aren't chavvy. Unfortunately I have and my opinion is equally as valid as yours, my working class credentials nonwithstanding smile

Eden is sort of acceptable. I've heard of worse anyway.

Bloom is awful.

HotSince it must be the people you mix with!

I know a male Eden in his fifties and two girls of 13, neither of whom are ‘chavvy’.
I think it’s lovely but I’m not mad keen on Bloom. Blythe or Belle maybe?

Eden Mary is much nicer. Eden Bloom just makes me think of the Garden of Eden.

Nonameyet1 Thu 24-Oct-19 20:29:04

Eden Mary is a lovely name

HotSince82 Wed 23-Oct-19 19:02:44

Eden is chavvy in the extreme when used for a girl.
Most Edens I know of are men aged twenty plus and the female ones invariably are aged under ten and hyphenated with something appropriating Mai/Jade/Bloom etc.

Sounds like a florist based at the Eden Project.

Love the name Eden Mary @WinnieRose1

WinnieRose1 Wed 23-Oct-19 13:53:54

We think we may go with Eden Mary, only down to the fact that I'm rewatching Downton at the moment and love Lady Mary ha!

Love Eden Blythe

FizzyGreenWater Wed 23-Oct-19 11:33:00

No, sorry.

How about Blythe?

Toojudgypants Tue 22-Oct-19 20:30:46

Eden is lovely . Bloom is awful.
What about primrose, willow, violet or daisy?

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)

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

*Jonquil sorry not 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 20:19:33

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

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

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.

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