What do you think of Beryl??
I think i am starting to love it, but would love some opinions please (I have no intentions of talking about names in rl as evryone goes [hmm[!).
Does it go well with Eli, Amos, Pearl and Iris?
Is it going to become immensely trendy/faddy as i am really trying to avoid anything faddy if at all possible.
TIA

Sorry I dont really like it

To me it sounds dated (rather than old-lady-chic IYSWIM!).It's not hideous though, just not my thing.

rubyslippers Wed 19-Aug-09 19:00:12

abouteve Wed 19-Aug-09 19:00:15

I don't like it, sorry.

I don't think theres much danger of it becoming "immensely trendy/faddy" so you've no worries on that front.

Sorry, not keen

motomoto Wed 19-Aug-09 19:06:13

no way, awful

MamaLazarou Wed 19-Aug-09 19:08:18

Ha ha ha, this old-lady name trend has gone TOO FAR!

LynetteScavo Wed 19-Aug-09 19:09:52

Well, I would say no, but as I'm really not keen on Amos (and you are, Op) then why not?

SoupDragon Wed 19-Aug-09 19:17:16

I actually think it's quite pretty and it's growing on my but it's a name from my mother's generation and it's not come back into favour yet. it was our neighbour's name when I was growing up and the name of one of my mother's friends.

abouteve Wed 19-Aug-09 19:17:21

Hang on, I've just twigged have you been watching Emmerdale OP grin

Thunderduck Wed 19-Aug-09 19:22:48

It's awful.

Thunderduck Wed 19-Aug-09 19:23:41

Besides you can't have Beryl and Pearl.It sounds ridiculous.

goomum Wed 19-Aug-09 19:27:03

I think it is great. Ignore the naysayers. You are just a bit before your time in your thinking. It will definitely come back but not in a big way, I reckon. It goes well with your other kid's names too.

TaxiLady Wed 19-Aug-09 19:30:17

my mil is called beryl

hth!

MrsBarbaraKingstanding Wed 19-Aug-09 19:34:40

May I suggest Dilys?

We loved this name but had boys. i think it would go well with your other names.

Not keen on Beryl...although as you keep saying it it has a nice sound to the word...so could be a grower

tummytickler Wed 19-Aug-09 19:36:56

Why cant you have Beryl adn Pearl?
No i have never watched Emmerdale, is there a Beryl in it?
That was soooo quick - i was away a few minutes and had 22 posts - jeez you guys are fast!
Oh - those kids already exist btw grin
