Not that it matters. I don't like it.

Coronation Street.

Yes... you're probably thinking Hepburn... but it immediately conjures up Roberts (from Corrie) for me...

I think I like it. Audrey Tatou.

I think it'd lovely!

Hmmm...on the one hand it conjures up a chainsmoking old dear with bleached barnet, on the other hand the divine Audrey Horne from Twin Peaks. I think it could well be a due a comeback; Audrey Tatou is tipping it towards Horne territory grin

i Like it

puts me in mind of:

audrey II, the carnivorous plant in 'little shop of horrors'.

and my former, incessantly nosey, neighbour, who was about 77 years old, and smelt of cheese.

I like it.

Very sweet and refined, it was high up on my list for girls.

I think its horrible..sorry

TenaciousG Tue 19-Aug-08 10:33:04

Love it.

I love it. Want it for DD2 but keep getting very negative reactions. MiL had nightmares about it when we told her it was on the list.

It's my nazi Nans name, who's very much a 'woman of her generation'. I actually quite like it, although I can't imagine using it myself

Disclaimer: I love my Nan very much, but she has 'views' that are better left undiscussed, so we generally ply her with alcohol and talk of happier things smile

I hate it... Sorry its awful.

My lovely auntie's name. It's great for shortening - Aud, Audie.

Go for it!

meglet Tue 19-Aug-08 11:06:06

ace name smile

Hi Meglet - I like it, although not sure I'd use it. I remember hearing a Mum shouting it in a play park - Audrey was about 4, and it seemed a slightly odd name for a little one. However, think its a million times better than Grace, Emily etc. And Audrey Horne is my all time style icon! (Twin Peaks)

Lakelover Tue 19-Aug-08 12:32:13

I love Audrey. Gorgeous name, and agree with others - the stunning Audrey Horne springs straight to mind for me!

Love it, I think it is due a comeback it's my nan's name and wanted to call DD it but DH hated it so I think people are pretty split on it.

Called her Grace instead <sticks tongue out at nellyonthetelly grin>
