For a girlgrin

Not totally a piss take, you have lots of both names, eg Leslie/Lesley, Tracie/Tracey, Charlie/Charlie etc

The more I think about it the more I think it holds promise

OK Mumsnetters, please be nicer to me than last time, what do you all think?

marymagdalene Wed 31-Dec-08 20:10:50

if you want to honour the SCD route why not go for Tess?!

KatieMorag Wed 31-Dec-08 20:10:51

please tell me this is a joke?

Heated Wed 31-Dec-08 20:11:08

only if she has a long chin

Can I also say how well you've taken the pretty uninversal battering of the name Elly-nor.

It's only cos we care!

LiffeyValleyOfTheDolls Wed 31-Dec-08 20:19:27

Oh I'm flattered to see my name in a thread title!

LiffeyValleyOfTheDolls Wed 31-Dec-08 20:19:59

All joking aside, I think you should call your dd Elinor Dulcie

LiffeyValleyOfTheDolls Wed 31-Dec-08 20:20:48

And save Brucie for your son!

He can be Brucie Elliot.

nkf Wed 31-Dec-08 20:21:14

What was the last name you picked? Brucie is, well, not good.

expatinscotland Wed 31-Dec-08 20:22:09

Please don't. Even if the baby turns out to be a boy.

Go buy a hamster. Name it Brucie. Don't worry, it'll only live about 4 years to a max.

aGalChangedHerName Wed 31-Dec-08 20:22:11

OMG you have got to be joking!!!

It would be bad enough for a boy never mind a little girl.

expatinscotland Wed 31-Dec-08 20:24:20

What was the last name you loved, Quasimodie?

aGalChangedHerName Wed 31-Dec-08 20:24:51

Ellynor expat iirc

Thunderduck Wed 31-Dec-08 20:25:52

Absolutely not.

What was your last name choice?

ILoveBrucie Wed 31-Dec-08 20:27:30

Thank you Heated smile

I don't actually take much notice of what you all say, you don't really feature that highly in my life!!

Anyway I have talked to DH about Brucie and have decided that it is in the running if we ahave a ds.

I do though like the suggestion of Ellynor Dulcy, I think it looks nd sounds gorgeous so thanks for that

aGalChangedHerName Wed 31-Dec-08 20:28:12

Why not spell it properly tho?

ILoveBrucie Wed 31-Dec-08 20:34:50

Because we want some kind of individuality in htis world of conformity and clones

aGalChangedHerName Wed 31-Dec-08 20:38:46

You can be an individual quite easily with a normal name tho dontcha think?

HallelujahHeisBorntoMary Wed 31-Dec-08 20:44:07

This conversation reminds me of the life of Brian (now there's a nice name for a girl - how about Briany?)

BRIAN:Look. You've got it all wrong. You don't need to follow me. You don't need to follow anybody! You've got to think for yourselves. You're all individuals!
FOLLOWERS: Yes, we're all individuals!
BRIAN: You're all different!
FOLLOWERS:Yes, we are all different!
DENNIS: I'm not.

ILoveBrucie Wed 31-Dec-08 20:45:25

If you look at all the normal names they are either done to death or incredibly chavvy, but by twiddling with the spelling we feel we are doing the right thing.

aGalChangedHerName Wed 31-Dec-08 20:49:14

Ellynor Dulcy sounds v chavvy IMO.
