My friends have just named their baby this. Wonder what people think? Don't say "Gabor."

you can't say 'don't say Gabor' because that's the first thing you think of.

think it's daft

I like it, depending on surname.

Zsa Zsa Winterbottom for example looses some of its glamour.

Gabor

unavoidable

strange face lifts, hitting policemen etc.

I absolutely love it!!!

My dd's middle name is Azariah, and i quite often call her zar-zar...

Oh poor little thing (not your dd lessthan!)

A friend of mine has a daughter called Zsa Zsa. Her surname is Hope and she (my friend) is stunningly beautiful so I imagine her child will be too, so it fits rather well.

I think that people should remember that like many strange names of both the literary and the media loving sort it was originally a nick name. I don't know why anyone would call their child after Zsa Zsa Gabor! Azariah is lovely though.

I want to like it, it's kind of exotic and makes me think of Cannes and Monaco and is rather glamourous. But then it is still a little bit silly too. wink

Sorry, reminds me of a zebra, as in 'Zsa-Zsa's baby brother' by Lucy Cousins. Love the book though!

this is the NN that i would use if i were brave enough to have Sheherazade as a first name....but on its own i'm not sure....

I wouldn't be brave enough.
Definately thinks of Gabor and a cat creature from Hector's House which was a fab tv show for kids, many, many moons ago.

I like it. BUT I think I would have made it a nn for Eliza or zara.

Zsa Zsa is a bit 'oh I'm sorry could you repeat that?"

MaggieBee Sat 30-May-09 19:15:52

It's Hungarian for Susan I think. Well, it's the pet form, so Hungarian for Susie I guess.

chandellina Sat 30-May-09 20:03:26

I agree it is brave. It is a nickname for Elizabeth (or the Hungarian equivalent, as mentioned above) but my friends don't like the name Elizabeth and just wanted Zsa Zsa. It goes well with their surname too, which has a Z in it.

I imagine Gabor will be forgotten by the next generation ...

Northernlurker Sat 30-May-09 20:10:14

As a nickname it's very cute. As an actual name-to-put-on-a-cheque-book name it's dire!

MaggieBee Sat 30-May-09 20:14:47

oh is it Elizabeth! sorry, I knew it was something really normal!
