perfectly standard names these days.

Although I've never heard of a Marlo, it doesn't sound especially unusual or strange.

hana Thu 09-Jul-09 17:28:55

like Marlo (boy?)

don't like the other 2

LOVE Gabriel. There's a song about a Gabriel which I really love too.

Primrose. Meh
Marlo. Hm.

Lizzylou Thu 09-Jul-09 17:29:09

I like those names, lovely.

4andnotout Thu 09-Jul-09 17:30:06

Love Gabriel and Marlo, Primrose is a bit meh.

LaDiDaDi Thu 09-Jul-09 17:30:16

I like Primrose.

Would prefer Marlow or Marlowe as a spelling.

currymaid Thu 09-Jul-09 17:30:42

OMG I know you in RL!

boodleboot Thu 09-Jul-09 17:34:55

who do you you know??

smile

currymaid Thu 09-Jul-09 17:36:24

Nah, I'm teasing.

I think those names are all bonkers btw.

currymaid Thu 09-Jul-09 17:36:43

(apart from Gabriel)

weegiemum Thu 09-Jul-09 17:37:56

I don't like any of them.

I know lots of people like Gabriel for a boy, but it just conjures up a girl in a white nightie and tinfoil wings saying "I bring you glad tidings" or something...... I just don't like it!

yama Thu 09-Jul-09 17:38:47

I bet Marlo's parents watched 'The Wire'.

boodleboot Thu 09-Jul-09 17:39:37

dammit....i thought i had come across my first RL crossover...

my opinions on them are that i can't work out if i absolutely love Primrose or if it is too old lady...i can't bear Primmy as NN but guess they can go with Rosie which is ok but but meh - i'm out on this one....

Gabriel is lovely and Marlo is nice but not really for me i don't think. I think i prefer Marley

Marlo is a little boy....born in oz.

Like Gabriel but the poor lad will probably be teased all the way through school. There was a Gabriel in dd's class, he got called all sorts from Angel to gay.

Jennylee Thu 09-Jul-09 18:18:55

My cousin called her girl Shakira...after the singer

Lizzylou Thu 09-Jul-09 18:49:54

Jennylee, my mate (called Jennie), has a cusin who has called her DD Shakira....

Bonkers.

Shakira Shakira

Jennylee Thu 09-Jul-09 19:14:50

lol wonder if its the same shakira, mine lives near chesterfield

Lizzylou Thu 09-Jul-09 19:16:11

Mine is in Lancashire, was wondering if you were my mate then!
"My" Shakira has a real Northern sounding surname as well, grin

QOD Thu 09-Jul-09 19:16:50

I just met an 8 month old Erica and a 6 month old Nancy
Not unusual but OLD names

LyraSilvertongue Thu 09-Jul-09 19:21:20

Our next door neighbour (10) is called Gabriel. It's a lovely name.
Don't like Primrose of Marlo.

Jennylee Thu 09-Jul-09 19:22:41

lol mine has an old scottish surname, and the middle name is...Lara. I think it does not really flow too much

thisisyesterday Thu 09-Jul-09 19:27:27

i love them all!
i have a gabriel
primrose was on my list all 3 pg's
and I know someone with a little girl called Marlo

everlong Thu 09-Jul-09 20:50:33

I have a Gabriel too. I think it's beautiful.

Don't like Marlo at all, is it made up?

As for Primrose, well it's a bit old old lady I think.
