Freaky I just read this. mty aunt just sent me loads of family tree reseach and a couple of the 1800s ones were called Dulcie. Another was calld Dulce (nicknamed Dulsie).

I absolutely love it. Gorgeous, chic, bit posh but not ludicrously pretentious. Feminine but not girly. Quite a strong name. She would be a character.

But I love all those names that my Mother hates I also love Edith, Lois, Margot, Polly, Mabel and Nancy.

I hate the sound of this name. It sounds very sulky.

cyteen Sun 31-Aug-08 11:56:56

Not my bag.

suedonim Sun 31-Aug-08 12:12:54

It's cute and I think will 'age' well.

I saw a middle-aged Willow in the paper recently and although I love that name for a child it really didn't suit the older woman.

Twee and sickly sweet.

Problems with teasing because of the only obvious nickname Dull

zippitippitoes Sun 31-Aug-08 12:41:18

no too agatha christie maidservant

MerryMarigold Sun 31-Aug-08 12:46:41

I hate it. My great grandmother was Dulcie and even so I wouldn't dream of using it.

It doesn't sound pretty at all even though the meaning is a bit sickly. Just trying to be a bit too 'I'm having a trendy old fashioned name, but not one that many other people have." Nahhhh

wheresthehamster Sun 31-Aug-08 12:53:19

Agree about dull. Dull Dulcie from Dullsville

devonsmummy Sun 31-Aug-08 13:11:47

I love it - Dh doesn't sad
When pregnant with DS we had Darcie chosen for a girl - but this seems to have become rather popular around here.
Dulcie is a good alternative I think

3andnomore Sun 31-Aug-08 13:38:00

Dulcie Jubilee springs to mind...

not keen

wabbit Sun 31-Aug-08 13:40:45
