Think you've decided on a name? Check out where it ranks on the official list of the most popular baby names first.

Hmmm is this only OK whilst at primary school?

Loving the name Tansy but wondering if it is cute for a little girl but a bit naff for a young woman? Hmmmmm

Your thoughts most welcome [grin}

oops - here's my grin for real grin

I know a grown up called Tansy - doesn't seem twee - she is not a girlie girl

dancedance Tue 16-Sep-08 20:18:53

Sounds like a sun bed shop
How about Tamzin instead? could have Tamsy as nickname?

angrypixie Tue 16-Sep-08 20:22:12

Don't like Tamzin......but like the idea that Tansy could be a pet name for something else, just not Tamzin! Hmmmmm

I know a Tansy. Is an unusual name but not only for a little girl I think. Also it is a "proper" thing i.e. a sort of flower rather than something made up so that helps.

I usually hate 'unusual' names but I really like it (and Tamsin was the name I wanted for DS2 if he'd been aDD obviously)

angrypixie Tue 16-Sep-08 20:30:27

I'm liking the response so far, well except the sunbeds grin

dancedance Tue 16-Sep-08 20:46:22

Sorry! it is cute sounding, and I like the meaning and that it's a flower (though a poisonous one I think hmm)

I once knew a Tamazine.. slight twist on this...

hellymelly Tue 16-Sep-08 20:51:35

I think Tansy is a lovely name and not too little girly,rather elegant IMO.

funnypeculiar Tue 16-Sep-08 20:58:36

I like it smile & don't think it's too little/cutsey at all

Tansy is indeed a plant - widely used as medicinally too

There is a composer called Tansy ??? I'm sure.

LynetteScavo Tue 16-Sep-08 21:12:46

I really don't think its' to cute or girly. It's pretty, but could be carried off by a lawer, or arctic exporer for example. Not that there will be much arctic exploring left to do, but you know what I mean.

What about TaNsin with Tansy for short.
Tanni Grey-Thompson her name really is
Carys Davina "Tanni" Grey-Thompson

MrsJohnCusack Wed 17-Sep-08 10:55:13

geminigirl Wed 17-Sep-08 10:58:01
