what do you all think of the name Veronica, she will most likely be called Ronnie most of the time?
with a short middle name like Lynne

I actually really love it but then I am a massive fan of these types of names and can't wait until they all come back. Also like Valerie and Yvonne for example. So bored of all the samey trendy names. Jean would also work as a middle name with Veronica.

im a bit of both really, I like these types of names but then some of the newer trendy names I love too!! also love Norah for a girl !! @PsychosonicCindy

Norah is a great strong name! Other retro names I like :
I just think they are all really sweet!

@PsychosonicCindy if you don't mind you asking, how old are you? I've never met anyone my age who's liked any names like me aha!!

Vera’s okay, but I’m not thrilled about Veronica (It makes me think of Verrucas) and I don’t like Ronnie. I like proper girly and frilly nAmes. Each to their own though.

Marcipex Thu 28-Nov-19 22:19:17

Love it.

b3x3y Thu 28-Nov-19 22:20:20

@Awwlookatmybabyspider aww i prefer like the more gender neutral not girly names ahah, there's a couple of girly names I do like though, mad how people like different things isn't it!!x

I really like Veronica and nn Ronnie is very fitting with the popular styles at the moment.

I also really like Valerie and Vivienne which have a similar vibe and start with a v obviously

b3x3y Thu 28-Nov-19 22:22:45

@Marcipex Me too!!


It's growing on me even more now!! and surprisingly I'm not a big fan of names beginning with V. Veronica is an exception that I've really grown to lovesmile))

I like Veronica but not Vera, despite having known 2 nice Veras.
Vera Duckworth was Veronica. So Veronica Lynne might be a bit hmm
I like Lynne and Linda.
You could shorten Veronica to Vron.

b3x3y Thu 28-Nov-19 22:25:07

I don't know who that is ahah:///
why might Veronica Lynne be "hmm"?? x

Vera Lynne

sue51 Thu 28-Nov-19 22:29:45

Pretty name.

b3x3y Thu 28-Nov-19 22:29:56

@MikeUniformMike ohhh right I see I see

Most people wouldn't see it, and if you shortened Veronica to Vera it probably wouldn't be used with the mn.

Marcipex Thu 28-Nov-19 22:34:15

I like Veronique too.

b3x3y Thu 28-Nov-19 22:36:44

@MikeUniformMike yeah I get you, if I was to use Veronica she'd be Ronnie anyways x

I like it. Ronnie from EastEnders might put me off. I think it's a saint's name and it's a nice plant.

Awwlookatmybabyspider Thu 28-Nov-19 22:43:58

Mad how people like different things, isn’t it.

It is. The world wouldn’t go round if we all liked the same things, would it.

b3x3y Thu 28-Nov-19 22:52:48

@MikeUniformMike yeah that was my original issue with the name, but its definitely growing on me

Sorry not a fan. I can’t help saying it with a Russian accent? I don’t know why...
I prefer violet...
