Ophelia Beatrix
Mungo Jeffrey

What do you think? The middle names are family names.

I prefer Bellatrix to Beatrix personally

semipetal Wed 29-Jul-09 23:35:36

Mungo Jeffrey sounds like Mungo Jerry, or is that just me?
Ophelia Beatrix is ok

Tinker Wed 29-Jul-09 23:36:47

No, you can't have Mungo Jeffrey.

janeite Wed 29-Jul-09 23:37:51

Sorry but I don't like Mungo Jeffrey at all and agree that it sounds like Mungo Jerry.

I quite like your girl's name though.

plonker Wed 29-Jul-09 23:38:06

Yep, I thought of mungo jerry too grin

Love Ophelia, very pretty

simplesusan Wed 29-Jul-09 23:39:30

Ophelia is unusual and nice-like it.

Mungo-no sorry really don't like.

wrongun Wed 29-Jul-09 23:43:16

Mungo sounds like a horrid word if you replace the 'u' with an 'o'.
Jeffrey is better as the first name.
Not a fan of the girl name. I do like Beatrice if that's an option.

Like Ophelia,sorry i don't like Mungo.

Like your girls name, really really dislike Mungo, hideous name, sorry.

Mungo - as in Harry Potter's correctional school?
Getting the HP theme from Beatrix/ Bellatrix also.

Humm.... sorry.

jodie87 Thu 30-Jul-09 00:19:19

Vegemitelover Thu 30-Jul-09 00:33:25

I think of sprouts when i hear Mungo. sorry.

LightShinesInTheDarkness Thu 30-Jul-09 01:01:44

Mary, Mungo and Midge.
Or am I just showing my age?grin

SarfEasticated Thu 30-Jul-09 01:07:46

I think Ophelia has rather sad connotations after Hamlet...

whirlpooldeeping Thu 30-Jul-09 01:12:38

How didn't I spot Mungo Jeffrey/Jerry? blush Must check for other family names now.

Nope, don't like Bellatrix. It sounds made up and we're not Potter fans.

gladders Thu 30-Jul-09 10:43:06

Mungo is a dog's name surely?

sockmonster Thu 30-Jul-09 10:53:19

replace Mungo with something less cruel and your names are perfect!

Montgomery is not as mean? Milo? Er.. anything but Mungo?

Personally I love the name Ophelia Beatrix

MamaLazarou Tue 04-Aug-09 15:34:52

Ophelia is really lovely. Sorry about Mungo Jerry!

Cadelaide Tue 04-Aug-09 15:36:47

What's happened with Ophelia? Everyone on MN used to hate it.

Re the sad Shakespeare connections, what about Juliet then? No-one ever says that about Juliet do they?

Mungo's just funny.

screamingabdab Tue 04-Aug-09 15:56:45

You don't want to know.


Thunderduck Tue 04-Aug-09 15:58:01

I like Ophelia but think Mungo is truly awful.

Thunderduck Tue 04-Aug-09 15:59:10

I don't think that Beatrix works well with Ophelia though.
