After my partner shunning all 50 names on my list (except Tallula) and after me cringing at his few offerings (except Eden) we are now down to these 2 names.I love them both. Just don't know which way to go. So here I am.......

Isn't it Tallulah?

I have an Eden smile

Depends how you want to spell it? Need to decide on the name first. thought it would be easier that way if shortening to Lula.

Tallulah sounds like a hooker.

Eden is lovely.

i have a tallulah , so that would be my choice

lou33 Sun 14-Sep-08 22:16:11

and she doesnt look or sound or act like a hooker/chav/whatever insult anyone wants to attach to her name

eden reminds my of elphaba (the wicked withc of the west from wizard of oz)

cause eden espinosa plays her

i dont really like either but out of the two i prefer tallulah (or tallie?)

Eden is nms, but I like Edie. (prefer Edith mind you)
but Tallula is a slutty name. are you going to have a slut or a baby!? grin

TheNaughtiestGirlIsaMonitor Sun 14-Sep-08 22:21:56

ooh. sorry lou33 blush didn't read other posts before I piped up.

lou33 Sun 14-Sep-08 22:23:45

clearly my daughter is destined to be a slut a hooker a chav or possibly a celebrity

just as well i have a thick skin and dont give a shit what anyone else thinks of my choice of names

nuthacuppatea Sun 14-Sep-08 22:24:32

That's a bit strong. it doesn't seem slutty at all to me. I think it's more cute.

binkythebullet Sun 14-Sep-08 22:24:53

I love both. One of my good mates is called Eden .

BlackEyedDog Sun 14-Sep-08 22:26:01

I don't think Tallula is slutty at all, I think it's sweet.

Also there are lots of cute shorty versions in there to plunder; Tally, Lulu, Lula.

there is another baby name thread regarding the name tallulah, and on there the words hooker and chav have been used too

i think some people can be a bit ott in their opinions on names when a simple "i prefer x,y,z" would suffice

lou33 Sun 14-Sep-08 22:28:45

dd2 usually has hers shortened to lula

cafebistro Sun 14-Sep-08 22:30:11

I love eden. If I'd have had my way My DS would have had eden as his middle name.

janeite Sun 14-Sep-08 22:30:53

Eden is lovely.

Tallulah is the Jodie Foster character in Bugsy Malone, so maybe some of the comments are based on that? I must admit, it's not my cup of tea but you should call your child what you want.

lou33 Sun 14-Sep-08 22:35:29

like i said on the other thread, the name tallulah is actually north american indian and means laughing water

there is a tallulah falls in georgia

tallulah is great, tally is a fab name. My eldest daughterh is 21, her name is Caithlin, when she was a baby, we used to call her caity-lou, which became tallulah, she loves it. and she is not in the least bit slutty, or chav, she is just beautiful. tallulah is a great name, and Tally, or Lula are lovely too.

MadBadandDangerousToKnow Sun 14-Sep-08 22:36:41

There are quite a few Tallulahs in this neck of the woods. I always thought it was a 'my parents work in the arts or media' sort of name and not at all chavvy or slutty - although there is the Bugsy Malone angle.

Of your two choices, I prefer Tallulah - Eden is a bit too gender-neutral for my taste.

dd2's middle name is daisy btw
