My friend thinks so. I was too embarrassed and cross to tell her this is on my list if I have a dd <shameful emoticon>.

pick a name because you like it.have some conviction,not your mate said blah blah - now you are unsure...

Soprana Sun 07-Sep-08 01:02:26

very, very pretty name. but that's just my view. yours is the most important one.

I'm so bored of these 'is it chav?' threads. It's all down to personal opinion how classy/unclassy a name is - mostly due to personal associations.
Most names are classless today anyway. As long as a name isn't made up or misspelled it's fine.

Alicia is prettier, I think.

The other posters are trying to help me.

What's wrong with made up names? Mine was made up. OK so it was made up in the 19th century, but it's 100+ years old so no-one gives a toss now.. All names have to come from somewhere. As long as it's not likely to embarrass your LO/impossible to spell/outright offensive, who cares, as long as you like it? Go for it sleepy!

I agree all names are made up at some pointhmm. Don't think is chavvy but like Alicia more.

ninedragons Sun 07-Sep-08 06:34:21

It's not chavvy but I would mentally place an Alyssa a little lower down the social scale than an Alice.

3andnomore Sun 07-Sep-08 11:35:27

I think it's lovvely and owuldn't consider it chavvy at all...

i wanted alyssa for dd2 but dh told me that it was a 'made up name'. dd1's name is also made up apparently.

i also liked anya which is a family name that is made up too. and according to dh you cannt give your children foriegn names unless you hail from that country. i think he forgot that my family does indeed hail from slovenia and that anya was my great aunts name. but spelled anja.

It is. I'm going to be lfamed for this, but feck, I've had two large lgasses of wine and I really don't care. My male cousins in Australia all behave with this shabby M.O. have several children and a bogan, then dump first bogan and move But, the point I'm getting to finally is that more than one of the children, cousins, or half cousins or step cousins to eachother were called Alyssa, Alicia, Alyssia...arhghghghghg! so it's a common name in bogan circles, imo.

What the heck is wrong with Alice?!?

Anya is lovely and anybody can use that imo.

TheNaughtiestGirlIsaMonitor Sun 07-Sep-08 20:41:08

I've just re-read my post. what utter nonsense. What ninedragons said really. Ignore my post.

GetOrfMoiLand Sun 07-Sep-08 20:45:05

Lolol at Naughtiest Girl's stream of consciousness ramblings!!

Alyssa is a pretty name - not on the chavometer IMHO.

stripeymama Sun 07-Sep-08 20:46:06

What is a 'bogan'?

jchandler Sun 07-Sep-08 20:54:54

bogan is an australian chav basically. used in Melbourne mainly. Mullet haircuts and flanelette shirts.

I really love the name Alyssa. Very pretty !!! go for it

poppy34 Sun 07-Sep-08 20:56:30

lol - naughtiest gil you have really made me laugh..had forgotten about bogans

frankbestfriend Sun 07-Sep-08 21:06:47

Rofl NaughtiestGirl have another drink and post some more, that last post was a classicgrin

ja9 Sun 07-Sep-08 21:08:18

i only know one alyssa. not chavvy at all grin

AuntieMaggie Sun 07-Sep-08 21:11:09

Alyssa has greek and hebrew origin. My name is also hebrew but often accused of being made up.

I think it's really pretty and not "chavvy".

Anyway, who cares what anyone else thinks - as long as you like it that's what matters.

"Chav" is overused in my opinion to insult things people don't like.

"I would mentally place an Alyssa a little lower down the social scale than an Alice" how wonderfully stuck up of you.

TheNaughtiestGirlIsaMonitor Sun 07-Sep-08 21:43:34

Was it like Ulysses? Taht was a stream of consciousness too apparently!

No more booze tonight.. grin

What about Leopold? Now there's an excellent name. I wish I'd called my son Leopold in fact.

AbbeyA Sun 07-Sep-08 21:55:01

What is wrong with Alice or Alison?
Anya is fine. My pet hate is made up names.

Janni Sun 07-Sep-08 21:55:07

I like Alicia.

AbbeyA Sun 07-Sep-08 21:59:30

Alicia is very nice.
