Only like caroline I'm afraid. Daphne will forever be Daphne broon from the Broons for me I'm afraid!!! veronica I don't like - sorry!!!! Know of some veronica's - shortened to vera, rik and Ronnie grin

I have a sneaking liking for Veronica, not sure I'd get it past DH tho... Nika/Nica is another shortening I've heard.

cosima Sat 21-Jun-08 14:54:47

in french Veronique is shortened to Vero. very nice.

FrannyandZooey Sat 21-Jun-08 14:54:50

I love Daphne
really old style glamour
I knew a Veronica I wasn't keen on, so not for me

I love Daphne. If I'd had a third dc who was a girl, she would definitely have been Daphne (my previous mumsnet name was Daphne as well).

I know two Veronica's who are shortened to Ronnie. Think that's rather nice too.

Don't really like any - but can offer Vanessa as a possible V name ?

noddyholder Sat 21-Jun-08 15:02:29

I like daphne too but not keen on the othrs.

MaryAnnSingleton Sat 21-Jun-08 15:03:12

Daphne reminds me of water fleas

luckymummy74 Sat 21-Jun-08 15:03:42

only like Caroline, sorry, you said honest.

Heated Sat 21-Jun-08 15:04:59

Caroline or Daphne for me, probably Daphne as its OLC & I like the Greek mythological associations - you could go the whole hog and name her Daphne Laurel wink

Not a fan of Veronica despite it being MIL's mn because her mother liked Veronica Lake. But I love Vivienne/Vivian.

MaryAnnSingleton Sat 21-Jun-08 15:05:34

Vivien is pretty
or Verity

Nancy66 Sat 21-Jun-08 15:47:47

don't like any of them sorry.

Veronica - makes me think of Veruccas - stupid, but there you have it.

Caroline - a bit old fashioned and not the prettiest name.

Daphne - one of those naff old fashioned names in same league as Yvonne and Barbara

LaDiDaDi Sat 21-Jun-08 15:53:26

I don't like Veronica.

Caroline is ok, I like Caro as a nickname.

Daphne is lovely.

Bronze Sat 21-Jun-08 15:54:21

Veronica makes me think of ballet

onelittlelion Sat 21-Jun-08 15:55:16

I like Caroline and can be shortened to Carrie whic I like too.

minster Sat 21-Jun-08 19:44:40

Caroline & Daphne are lovely.

greenelizabeth Sat 21-Jun-08 19:46:12

Caroline is boring and I know loads my age. Lina or Caro or Charlie are the only nns I can think of. I'd rather Charlotte with Lottie for short.

Veronica is quite nice, although perhaps a little harsh, but Vero is glamorous I think. Ronnie is dodgy! Nica or Vica ? Verona???

Daphne is just one name I can't stand. It's ugly and weird and sounds like DAFT.

Tommy Sat 21-Jun-08 19:55:11

have a good friend called Veronica. She is called V for short which makes her soiund like Vera Duckworth grin

jumpyjan Sat 21-Jun-08 20:05:50

I really like Caroline - Carrie for short.

eekamoose Sat 21-Jun-08 22:24:14

[not my thread but secretly thrilled that so many appear to like Daphne]

AbbeyA Sat 21-Jun-08 22:25:08

I only like Caroline which I might have used if I had a girl.
Veronica is usually shortened to Ronnie.

Collision Sat 21-Jun-08 22:26:16

Dont like any of them.

caroline is ok
veronica is not ok
daphne is daft

you do have to think of a name that will carry through life and I cannot imagine wanting to be 15 and called Daphne.......

Collision Sat 21-Jun-08 22:27:07

and there was an awful character in Eastenders called ronnie if that puts you off at all..........

are you def having a girl? what are the boy choices?

BreeVanDerCampLGJ Sat 21-Jun-08 22:28:07

Veronica is lovely, especially if it is shortened to Ronnie. Never thought of Vero, but that is OK.

Caroline is a great name.
