Maple Rose for a girl. Madness?

I'm not pregnant or anything but I just adore this name if I had another girl one day but something says it's in the same vein as Apple. Thoughts?

I'm usually quite traditionalist with names, but quite like this.

Not barking like Apple.

AspasiaManos Mon 17-Aug-09 15:36:37

Maple is barking.

too sappy

boom boom

I'm with mrsbarabara...

Usually hate non-traditional names.

Maple sounds nice though.

MaggieBeauLeo Mon 17-Aug-09 15:49:37

I quite like it, but I'd be worried she'd be called leaf or syrup.

I really like Mabel though. And I agree, Maple is much nicer than Apple. There is nothing I like about Apple!

MrsBarbaraKingstanding Mon 17-Aug-09 15:52:17

Being called Apple is like being called Table.

Although I did read Gwenyth paltrow saying the fuss everyone had made you'd think they'd called the child Shithouse. Which me smile amd like her. Momentarily.

MaggieBeauLeo Mon 17-Aug-09 15:54:55

Did she say that?! A rare flash of humour!

It is like being called Table though. It's just so random somehow. LIke they stuck a pin into the dictionary.

theyoungvisiter Mon 17-Aug-09 15:54:58

I don't like it. It sounds like Maypole and I can imagine the jokes already.

MrsBarbaraKingstanding Mon 17-Aug-09 15:57:20

Or like being called Microsoft.

Table or Microsoft which is worse??

The two go together well but people would probably think its ment to be Mable.

Ladyem Mon 17-Aug-09 16:00:35

Sounds like a clairvoyant at a fairground who'd tell you your future in her crystal ball!! (Sorry!)

Thunderduck Mon 17-Aug-09 16:01:08

It's awful.

MamaLazarou Mon 17-Aug-09 17:10:36

Everyone will just think you can't spell Mabel.

PestoMonster Mon 17-Aug-09 17:12:04

Maple Syrup's better

differentDM Mon 17-Aug-09 17:13:09

maple's what you pour on pancakes isn't it?

cheesesarnie Mon 17-Aug-09 17:15:00


i agree people will think you cant spell mabel

i dont mind apple.grin

i had a dream lastnight my dd was called pixie and have been looking at her today thinking actually she'd get away with it.not like the pixie i knew when i was younger who turned into a fairly plump and not very nice(not because she was plump just because she was a twat before i get rahhh comments)it was bit ...umm odd-in a table way.

Maple is cute. People might assume a Canadian link cos of the maple leaf though.

You pour maple syrup on pancakes... which comes from maple trees. I think tree names are due a comeback anyway.

Rowan, Linden, Holly are all ok. And there are some lesser done ones like Cedar or Tamarix

MadameCastafiore Mon 17-Aug-09 17:22:19

I would snigger and think you were a bit chavvy.

God, I am judgemental aren't I!

Alarielle Mon 17-Aug-09 17:28:52

It makes me think of ham.

"This is not just ham. This is Marks and Spencers maple rose ham..."

Jujubean77 Mon 17-Aug-09 19:31:57

I like it, not chavvy at all just different. She would have to be a brunette stunner though.

chichichien Mon 17-Aug-09 19:47:03

Not good. It's a child not an ice cream

CarmenSanDiego Mon 17-Aug-09 20:58:00

How on earth is it chavvy?
