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

Theres one in dd9s class at school. I like it it really suits her.

@puds11 I love Nancy as well but it's become so popular

puds11 Sun 01-Dec-19 17:57:38

Love Ronnie. Also love the name Nancy.

@FizzyGreenWater personally I prefer the c spelling

FizzyGreenWater Sun 01-Dec-19 10:10:32

Love Veronica.

More popular overseas spelled with a k not a c, I know a Croatian one who is Vika for short

Harsh sounding and old fashioned. It’s in the same boat as Bernadette, Bridget, Moira.

It’s a no from me.

Love it, and love Ronnie as a nn.

Also love Nora / Norah.

I love Rita and Dinah too.

@PetraRabbit ooo like what? let me hear x

I love Veronica (love feminine grand old European names with history) but hate Ronnie (hate anything nicknamey/unisex/ending in "ie"). Just my opinion! If you like Ronnie, there are a few other names you could use as longer versions.

I've always Th ought it's an 'ugly' name. Both Veronica's I know are known as Ronnie.

MissHenty Fri 29-Nov-19 21:36:20

I like it but it sounds a bit too much like verucca to my ears

@FartnissEverbeans aww did it suit a toddler, I didn't know wether it would suit the younger ages , hence the nn Ronnie

I met a toddler named Veronica recently! She was very, very cute and wearing a rainbow jumper.

I had never thought about the name before then but it suited her perfectly. I complimented her mum on the choice.

I love it but I'm a bit forrin and grew up reading a comic called archie where his main target was a black haired beauty called Veronica and i loved the character so I'm biased.

b3x3y Fri 29-Nov-19 19:54:44

ahhh the Cartier one lmao

MikeUniformMike Fri 29-Nov-19 13:54:53

Guessed that from another thread you started.
Doesn't mean it's not a nice name. It was on the list we had for DD1 but we decided we wanted a name that wouldn't generate a nn.

b3x3y Fri 29-Nov-19 13:16:16

@MikeUniformMike no I'm not.

MikeUniformMike Fri 29-Nov-19 11:01:56

It's nice. Roni/Ronnie is cute as a nn.
You're not pregnant though are you.

Thetimetravelerswife Fri 29-Nov-19 08:22:38

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

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

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

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.

MikeUniformMike Thu 28-Nov-19 22:38:56

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

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
