I'm compiling a list atm and may add this.
Any thoughts? I wonder if this will become trendy as I've heard of a few babies recently called this.

's a singer

harpomarx Mon 18-Aug-08 13:51:19

nice, probably is already trendy if that bothers you. I know a couple too.

A nice word but for some reason I've never considered it a nice name

Evelynsmum Mon 18-Aug-08 19:59:03

You would then be "Mother of Pearl" which would be cool.

Groovy name

Love it, very modern but beware the porno 'pearl necklace' gags later in life!

cheesesarnie Tue 19-Aug-08 15:57:46

marymungoandmidge Tue 19-Aug-08 15:58:27

Not for me, sounds to old lady.

Mammina Tue 19-Aug-08 22:05:07

Love it. I do know one who was born this year though, but that's the only one I've known who's under 80

What iklboo said too

Pearl Necklace, Pearl Jam - no way.

EllieG Tue 19-Aug-08 22:08:38

I think sweet name, but can't help having image of Primrose Hill type people having lots of swinging fun as Pearl whatserface Supergrass wife was supposed to have been part of all that stuff with Jude Law and Sadie Frost and things.

I clearly pay too much attention to Heat magazine.

Drusilla Tue 19-Aug-08 22:09:30

I would think of an old lady with a blue rinse

dizzydixies Tue 19-Aug-08 22:10:01

I like it

expatinscotland Tue 19-Aug-08 22:11:09

I like it.

Not for most of the reasons given here.

In the past I had a flair for the dramatic and a flair for the romantic and was an avid reader of the classics.

Hester Prynne in 'The Scarlett Letter' named her daughter this because the baby was 'one bought at great cost' and I had a fancy for the sentiment.

But DD1 didn't look like a Pearl and DH wasn't keen so she wound up a Gaelic version of Helen, which suits her far more.

dizzydixies Tue 19-Aug-08 22:12:47

<<hi-jack>> hi expat how are you keeping?
I saw a wee girl in the paper today called Muiranne and she so DIDN'T look like a Muiranne - wonder if I should write and demand she change her name grinwink

MadBadandDangeroustoKnow Tue 19-Aug-08 22:26:01

I like it (rude jokes notwithstanding) and certainly think it's a nicer name than the fine but chronically over-used Ruby.

LynetteScavo Tue 19-Aug-08 22:30:44

I don't know any. (Obviously not trendy enough) Not keen. [polite emoticon]
