Charlie and Dora for short, to go with older sister Libi? Any potential pitfalls envisaged?

They are brilliant names. I also like Dot or Dolly as nicknames for Dorothy.

dora the explorer

my ds's friends mother is called dora and the kids find it hysterical

I was trying not to mention the explorer! But yes, the connection would be pointed out instantly, and often.

Dora the Explorer isn't a bad connection though is it? Not enough to put you off using the name.

Charles and Dorothy are fine if you like them.

I like those Think Dot is nicer abbreviation for Dorothy tho...

Chuck n Dot sound fun

Lovely names.

Fab fab fab!
(especially as I like the nicknames - Libi is also really nice, well done you!)

What is Dora the explorer? Not quite at the tv character stage with DD one... Is it/she a particularly bad/offputting personality then?

both lovely names and they go well together

nice names, not sure about Dora- prefer Dot or Dotty

thanks everyone, might go for isaac instead of charles now, but dorothy looking more likely- with a possible dodie as nickname..........

Charles goes better than Isaac (with Dorothy) imho

Dora the Explorer is a v worthy educational cartoon. My DS1 was speaking Spanish at 2 thanks to her!

I prefer Dorothea to Dorothy, bit more glamourous IMO. I LOVE Isaac though, Ike for short? Of course nicknames usually end up longer rather than short, she'll be Dillydollydoodah or something for the first 5yearsgrin.

I am not keen, abit old fashioned.

agree with lovebuckets dorothea has the wdge over dorothy.

In Scotland it would likely be Chick & Dot.

Lakota Mon 20-Jul-09 16:15:07

My aunt is Dorothy, and she is known as Doll or Dolly. It never seemed odd to us!
