what do people think

Makes me think of the woman from Doctors. very earthy dear. I like Pumpkin too. grin

Flum Wed 22-Oct-08 13:03:51

Bracken! Seriously? TBH I think it is ridiculous.

Neenztwinz Wed 22-Oct-08 13:04:19

is this a wind-up

MissusH Wed 22-Oct-08 13:04:31

very, erm woody... wink

MorticiaAnnSpookington Wed 22-Oct-08 13:04:57

I thought of poor child in Doctors too....what about Fern,Heather,Horsetail ?

Thomcat Wed 22-Oct-08 13:05:56

I think if it's the name you have gone for it shouldn't matter what anyone else thinks.

You might hate the names I've gone for too but that's ok, cos they are my kids {smile]

If you like it that's all that matters.

one or the other,i think but not really both.
Bracken is nice and in a few years we may be tripping over them, but i still think of it as a puppys name.
Willow is nice.

Willow's lovely, it was on my short list but I thought if she has my short fat dumpy legs, it will be the most ridiculous name! Bracken, I'm afraid, I don't like. My first dog (a great big beagle) was called Bracken which was OK, but for a little girl? No, sorry.

SongbirdScreamsInTheDeadOfNite Wed 22-Oct-08 13:13:23

Actually, I think I'm with moyasmum - I might warm to the name Bracken if there was a different middle name. It sounds like Broken Willow to me, which is a bit Native American wink

willow is nice but bracken just reminds me of something dogs piss up when you take them a walk in the woods

seeker Wed 22-Oct-08 13:17:48

I know 3 Brackens - an English Spaniel, a pony and a tortoiseshell cat. It suits all three of them perfectly.

will teach me for asking

Moominpappa Wed 22-Oct-08 13:24:21

Bracken - invasive, smothering species with carcinogenic properties that is a bugger to get rid of..... So, not really a name I'd go for personally.

Sparkletastic Wed 22-Oct-08 13:25:32

Willow - yes

Bracken - noooooooooooooooo


hifi Wed 22-Oct-08 13:25:51

ooh, where r bracken?

SheSellsSeashellsByTheSeashore Wed 22-Oct-08 13:26:20

I like Willow but not Bracken. It will make you sound like a new age hippy.

I met a bracken on the way to school. He was meeting up with his labrador friend grin

mrsmaidamess Wed 22-Oct-08 13:26:58

How about twiglet birdsnest? But agree, if you like it, what the hey!

MerlinsBeard Wed 22-Oct-08 13:26:58

i think its a wind up

I knew a goat called Bracken once

piratecat Wed 22-Oct-08 13:32:48

i had a pony called bracken.
tbh if you like Bracken and this isn't a wind up, I think a les woody name as a second name would be more complimentary,

Bracken Rose (more flower than wood)
Bracken Jane

that type of thing?

kittywise Wed 22-Oct-08 13:35:02

Oh gOd, here we go again

it is an awful choice of made up names

Find something else

jennifersofia Wed 22-Oct-08 13:36:23

Sorry, Bracken reminds me of bracken - see Moominpapa's post. I like Willow though.

JamInMyWellies Wed 22-Oct-08 13:38:32

I like it. As far as I know I think Bracken is a Scottish name.

kittywise Wed 22-Oct-08 13:38:45

Ds likes a series of books called 'fleabag monkeyface'
