What an enchanting name doncha think? it conjures up images of beauty and romance to me.....worthy of a revival do you think?

Conjures up images of Marilyn Manson for me ...not the best look

I used it as a middle name as it was my mum's name (she died 20 years ago).

I'm afraid it brings to mind an old lady in a nursing home who wears too much bright make-up! I can't imagine it suiting a child - but each to their own!! Giving it as a middle name is a nice compromise though - it might come back into fashion in years to come and then DD could pass it on again!

would go fantastically with my surname!

My immediate association is Munroe not Manson and certainly not old ladies.

I rather like it.

MitchyInge Thu 06-Aug-09 16:02:35

it's Monroe not Munroe!

Pardon me, I was getting confused with the name for large peaks.

I know a Marilyn, sorry to report that she doesnt like her name and has for many years shortened it to Mandy!

Is the most beautiful and glamorous name in the world.

I would definitely be going for it had I not already wasted it on a cat.

(Incidentally, TwoHot: Mandy Rice-Davies was also a Marilyn!)

It is a beautiful name.

I like it. My first thought was of Marilyn Monroe.
