DS is Billy. Do you think Sally goes with his name? if not any other suggestions welcome!

I like Sally, its cute for a baby and pretty for a girl/woman. Also not many around, which is nice.

Another alternative; Samantha - could be nicknamed Sammy?

I have a lovely relative called Sally which colours my opinion of it - cute, little bit different yet easy to spell

Sorry, don't like it. It makes me think of Aunt Sally, and a friends dog is called sally.

One of my closest friends is actually called Sally and DH doesnt think we should copy. i dont think she would mind though!

I love it smile

One of my father's sisters is called Sallie (nickname for Sarah). And one of his brothers is called Bill (nickname for Cecil William).

My sister has a DD named molly and is constantly told "oh my dogs called molly". it would'nt really bother me - i would just say nice name!

I like Sally. Not sure it goes with Billy though...sounds a bit odd.

Anna8888 Thu 18-Dec-08 09:04:44

I had a great aunt called Mollie (nickname for Monica) and I have a second cousin called after her...

Sally's nice, but it sounds silly with Billy.

ggirlsbells Thu 18-Dec-08 09:06:37

too cbebbie-like when put with billy imo

sally is nice though

billy and katy

ggirlsbells Thu 18-Dec-08 09:07:51

I know someone with a Millie and Maddie and that sounds stupid as well.

Sally deserves a comeback - it's a sweet name. And one of my best friends is one, so I'm biased.

Doesn't go with Billy though.

what do you think would go with Billy then? i'm open to suggestions. i would like something short as we have a very long surname.

Anna8888 Thu 18-Dec-08 09:09:43

Is Billy a nickname for William, or is the name on his birth certificate Billy?

mazzystartled Thu 18-Dec-08 09:09:54

it's great

i don't really understand why people worry about names "going together". it's fine with billy

mickeymistletoe Thu 18-Dec-08 09:09:59

Lol at Billy and Lilly! smile
