I am eternally grateful to anyone who can be bothered to look at this...I am getting bored with it myself grin

DH and I have now reached a stalemate.
the only names we can agree on are Nancy and Lola.

neither of them really do it for me, but are the least awful of DH's choices and the only ones that he likes of my choices.

Is lola getting too popular now?

mabel1973 Thu 21-Aug-08 14:11:55

Oh and any other suggestions that might be similar would help?

Fimbo Thu 21-Aug-08 14:13:30

Nancy is a top name imo.

Do you need more suggestions?

My dh wanted Elinor if ds was a girl and I wasn't overly keen but now I think its a lovely name.

MaryAnnSingleton Thu 21-Aug-08 14:14:03

Fimbo Thu 21-Aug-08 14:15:43

Nancy is lovely, agree.

Without wanting to rehash the whole pain of it wink what other names have been on the drawing board? Perhaps we can think of one in the same vein that neither you have considered, that you both love...

Or if we can't, unless dh is having this one for you, you get to decide!

nancy is nice

what about Nina? I really liked Nina but dh didn't

Angelsus Thu 21-Aug-08 14:24:50

Nancy is lovely

I've also recently started loving the name Penny

mabel1973 Thu 21-Aug-08 14:25:31

Heated we had the following:

Flora - general consensus on here was too cruel due to margarine...spreads easily jokes

Lila - i think sounds like lilo and also put off by it being kate moss' daughters name

Florence - we have a fred so would have florence and fred (tesco)

Pearl - Dh doesn't like

Ruby - DH doesn't like

Tabitha - DH doesn't like and is a cats name i guess!

cora or cara
tara or tana
layla or lyra?

clementine nn clemmie?

Heated Thu 21-Aug-08 14:35:34

Shame about Flora, another lovely one.

Would you describe your naming style as stylish old lady chic?

Freya
Kitty (although can't really see you dh going for this one if he rejected Tabitha)
Miriam
Elizabet/Eliza
Helena/Nell
Sylvie
Robyn
Susannah/Susie

I love Lola!

There are none around here.

I didn't use it for DD as DH kept singing "her name was Lola" every time I mentioned it. hmm

On another naming thread I saw a link posting Lola to the urban dictionary which was a bit shock. No idea if it really is used as a slang word.

TwoWindyDays Thu 21-Aug-08 14:42:51

Isla
Iona

dizzydixies Thu 21-Aug-08 14:43:37

Heated - yes old lady chic! grin

fiofio - like Dolores...i'll suggest to DH later!

jellybeans Thu 21-Aug-08 14:54:18

Don't like Nancy, so old fashioned. Lola is OK.

gladders Thu 21-Aug-08 15:25:56

prefer lola personally and don't actually know ANY little lolas at all......

just on the penny/nell thing.... i know someone who alternates between them - both can be short for penelope?

Boobz Thu 21-Aug-08 15:29:19

Penelope... Penny and Penn for short.

TenaciousG Thu 21-Aug-08 15:34:14

I like Nancy; also was name of first ever woman MP, so good strong feminist connotations wink. Love FF's suggestion of Dolores, not keen on Lola alone. Also like:

Lydia

Esther

Mathilda

Eloise

Frances

Eleanor

Sinead

Roisin
