What do you think of the name Farra for a girl?

blitzthehouse Mon 18-Aug-08 14:35:35

Farrah blush

Horrible. Also sounds like Farah, the clothing brand, which is also horrible.

Just my opinion though

I like unusual names generally, but I can't get my head round it because it makes me think of the awful trousers.

I know only one Farrah, she is from Iraq originally & obviously it suits her.

fI think you could get away with it if you were quite posh, other wise, NO.

My DP is a professor in electrical engineering and I wanted to call baby girl Faraday (after Michael).

But - friends/family and dp thought it was too like Farrah (and therefore to chavvy) - luckily we had a boy. Still like Faraday though - but not Farrah. Sorry.

suzywong Mon 18-Aug-08 15:33:11

Faraday Ohm

gotta ring to it

PootyApplewater Mon 18-Aug-08 15:33:32

nuh uh

DarrellRivers Mon 18-Aug-08 15:34:12

I quite like it
Agree though, you would have to be posh to pull it off

slinkiemalinki Mon 18-Aug-08 17:03:27

Farah - quite popular muslim girl's name - I rather like it in that context. Less keen on spelling of Farrah for some reason. Everybody will say Fawcett won't they? Or "slacks"

Love it.

It's not a posh name. Might be a wannabe posh name. It's probably lovely in the language it came from, but I don't think it travels well. What other names are on your shortlist?

lastboxoftampons Tue 26-Aug-08 13:17:53

I like it - but I'm a bit biased since it IS my name! Spelled Farah. I'm not Iranian and I don't think I'm particularly chavvy hmm I will say people have a hard time getting their heads' around it no matter how much I spell it for them so that I usually have to resort to "like Farrah Fawcett" blush But once people do get it, I often get lovely compliments on it.
