Mary Berry

whymewhyme Sun 12-Jan-20 22:42:55

Berry and Stirling are a no from me, the rest are lovely.

CodenameVillanelle Sun 12-Jan-20 22:44:15

Berry - are you ok?
Robin - nice
Ada - boring/cliché
Emmeline - nice, but a bit fussy, people will call her Emily
Thea - nice pronounced Téa but not so nice Theea
Mary - blah

Rafferty - like!
Rex - nice
Beau - ew no, pretentious
Roman - no, Ronan maybe
Stirling - no
Felix - nice

Flymetothestars Sun 12-Jan-20 22:44:50

Berry - lovely name
Robin - lovely name but prefer spelling Robyn for girl and Robin for boy
Ada - great name
Emmeline - nice name
Thea - excellent
Mary - ok

Rafferty - love this
Rex - love this
Beau - ok
Roman - very run of the mill now and will date badly. According to the official statistics it was last years’ fastest rising name in England and Wales (will be top 10/20 v soon on current trajectory), so I would personally avoid it
Stirling - don’t like
Felix - love

Flymetothestars Sun 12-Jan-20 22:46:06

Instead of Emmeline, which I agree is a bit fussy, how about Emmie or Emmy

Please not Berry!
Robin is a boy's name
I love Ada and it's not boring or cliche at all!

Please not Beau! For god's sake why would anyone call their child "Beautiful" (and don't get me started on using it for a girl...)
Roman or Felix

Astronica Sun 12-Jan-20 22:48:44

Mary is my favourite. I also like Robin and Ada.
Felix and Rafferty are my favourites, and I also like Stirling.

Nofoolfornoone Sun 12-Jan-20 23:03:28

Wow, Felix is the only name you all agree on So far! Followed by Rafferty and Rex.

I need to work on my girls names clearly lol Robin is a unisex name though not a boys name. But more commonly spelt Robyn if used for a girl. I’ve always loved Berry. I met a Berry once in Scotland and thought it was beautiful. But it’s risky choosing such an unusual name so I’m not sure I would for a first name.

JesusHChristOnABike Sun 12-Jan-20 23:05:22

I have a Felix so that's my favourite of your boys names. Not keen on any others in your list.

For a girl, I'd go for Robyn. Love that name.

Berry immediately caught my attention. It's so pretty! A nice alternative to Cherry. And Thea has always been a favorite of mine. More particular with boys names, I like Stirling best off your list

Flymetothestars Mon 13-Jan-20 09:18:32

I like Berry too and think it’s a unisex name for example, Berry Gordy from Motown @kaezarose

Emmeline - love this
Thea - I like this name but find it doesn't roll off the tongue easily for me
