were they in the desert?

Beautiful! But yes, the shortened forms are all awful.

MrsMattie Wed 08-Jul-09 21:25:46

I agree@kathy. It's a very nice name thinking about it, but Cilla is dreadful - the buck-teethed scouser connotations are too great for me.

Some names should just fade away.

A woman I vaguely know has just named her child Maude Hilda.

I love Priscilla - was on our list a while back, dd was nearly called Maude (toss up between that and Pearl in the delivery room!), and top for next dd is Hilda!

I love them all!

I love it.

A lady at work who's in her late 50's is horrified that her daughter is thinking of calling her LO Stan

Lio Thu 09-Jul-09 15:22:45

Stan = better than Satan, no?

Mamazon Thu 09-Jul-09 15:24:26

dp wants to call any future daughter this because he is a massive Elvis fan.

if we ever have a boy he wants to call it Prestly.

SOOOO keeping the coil in!

Priscilla, Priscilla, the mighty gorilla...

Josephine I can cope with, but Priscilla?

Have met too many grumpy Maude's to really picture a baby of the same name.

you don't hear Constance much these days either.

I quite like it, Priscilla Presley always springs to mind.
