I fell in love with this name after watching Pan's labyrinth last night .
What do you think Yay or Nay .

FrockHorror Mon 29-Sep-08 11:28:44

Lovely, but prefer the spelling Ophelia smile

TillyScoutsmum Mon 29-Sep-08 11:28:45

Spelt like that - no

Ophelia quite pretty though

NotQuiteCockney Mon 29-Sep-08 11:29:05

1. it's spelt 'Ophelia'.

2. it's after a character in Shakespeare who goes mad and drowns herself. Which isn't necessarily the best association.

TheProvincialLady Mon 29-Sep-08 11:29:13

Yes but why would you spell it that awful way?

Dropdeadfred Mon 29-Sep-08 11:29:27

never mispell a name...Ophelia is pretty ofelia is awful

McDreamy Mon 29-Sep-08 11:29:34

Another vote for Ophelia

FabioVicePeeperPlopper Mon 29-Sep-08 11:29:35

Off Hamlet, innit
Not good if your surname is Bumm or similar.

Imnotok Mon 29-Sep-08 11:29:49

Yes I think I like the spelling with a p beter dp likes it with an F but is stll not sure on the name .

NotQuiteCockney Mon 29-Sep-08 11:30:01

Oh, wait, I googled, Ofelia is apparently the Spanish or Italian way to spell this name.

Still, if you live in the UK, she will have to spell her name, over and over.

charl25 Mon 29-Sep-08 11:30:36

i like it also agree spelt the pretty way tho..

Imnotok Mon 29-Sep-08 11:30:37

You can spell it with an F .

Tortington Mon 29-Sep-08 11:30:38

nay lass nay

Imnotok Mon 29-Sep-08 11:31:16

But I do prefer it with a P.

frazzledoldbag34 Mon 29-Sep-08 11:31:19

Tortington Mon 29-Sep-08 11:31:39

CherryChapstick Mon 29-Sep-08 11:33:04

She will be taunted. Forever.

Imnotok Mon 29-Sep-08 11:33:06

Frazzled, I didn't change the spelling the Italians did wink.

NotQuiteCockney Mon 29-Sep-08 11:34:46

Oh, those Italians, they're dreadful, aren't they.

Imnotok Mon 29-Sep-08 11:35:27

Shocking .

fishie Mon 29-Sep-08 11:37:56

there is an ofelia in love and rockets she is latin american.

frazzledoldbag34 Mon 29-Sep-08 11:38:53

Yes but we're not in Italy are we? (or maybe YOU are I don't know in which case do as you please!). But if you're in UK and spell it Ofelia people will just think you can't spell. Or you're trying to be clever and trendy with it. Perhaps also a touch - ahem [coughs in embarrassed fashion] common?
[covers head and runs for cover]

Tortington Mon 29-Sep-08 11:41:03

yeah common as shit

Imnotok Mon 29-Sep-08 11:45:06

Ok can't risk been thought of as common wink so if I did use it spell it with a p ?

Oblomov Mon 29-Sep-08 11:46:24

No. too much like ofal. Which = awful.
Awful ofal ofelia.NICE.

Like ophelia. That is a proper name.
