Usually I am firmly in the "if you like it go for it" but I would have to draw the line at Tinker-Belle!!

beanieb Mon 31-Aug-09 19:55:21

I like them all apart from Viola, Tinker-belle (why the hyphen?), Leslie and Ernie. Not keen on the spelling of the Daisey in Daisey-may and I am more familiar with Iona than Ione.

bluebump Mon 31-Aug-09 19:56:16

I like Ione.

southernbelle77 Mon 31-Aug-09 19:56:49

Not a double barrelled person myself so don't like Daisey-May and certainly no to Tinker-Belle!! The other are all ok, but think Ione is the best.

Boys not over liking especially Leslie and not really keen on Erik. Ernie is the best one for me.

Ditch Tinker-Belle shock and Daisey-May straight off.

Quite like Nancy and Viola. Daisy by itself is sweet. Otherwise none of your girls' names particularly grab me. Sorry, your boys' names don't either. Imagine though, if you had twin boys, you could call them Erik and Ernie grin

Are you taking the piss with at least one of those? Seriouslyshock

MamaLazarou Mon 31-Aug-09 20:10:02



People will just assume you are incredibly thick.

Nancy's nice, though.

jkklpu Mon 31-Aug-09 20:20:07

Nancy's great
Viola OK
don't like any of the others and Tinker-Belle must be a wind-up

How can the person who considers using Isolde for their daughter also consider Tinker-Belle? It's a wind up.

Nancy and Viola are the only sensible options. Erik & Ernie? Bring me sunshine, etc.

myredcardigan Mon 31-Aug-09 20:42:50

Nancy is nice but I'd call her Agnes and shorten.

MaggieLeo Mon 31-Aug-09 20:44:29

Nancy - lovely! sparky, classic, nancy Astor.
Isolde - like it. bit pretentious mind you.
Ione - not sure. I love IOna and Skye though
Daisey-May - what? I thought you were a classy person and now you give me this hyphenated name with May on the end? Daisy is nice. Lose the May.
Viola - ok prefer Vivien
Violetta - ok.
Tinker-Belle - Janey Mackers no. What about Annabelle with Nancy for short??

Erik - em. No.
Leslie - em. No.
Ernie - I hate this less.

What about Victor or Howie or Donald or Bruce? They are all a bit dated and borderline cool.

janeite Mon 31-Aug-09 20:48:00

Nancy - nope
Isolde - I like this, tis unusual but pretty
Ione - nope
Daisey-May - love Daisy but not the hyphen May and deffo not with a letter 'E'
Viola - okay
Violetta - nope but love Violet
Tinker-Belle - really, no

Erik - awful
Leslie - okay
Ernie - worse than Erik

MissGreatBritain Mon 31-Aug-09 20:48:29

Nancy - a bit silly
Isolde - a bit pretentious
Ione - no one will know how to pronounce, or spell it
Daisey-May - lives on trailer park
Viola - just no
Violetta - best of the lot
Tinker-Belle -for your cat, yes

Erik not bad, prefer Eric
Leslie old-fashioned and dull
Ernie - again, for your cat.

You did say be honest!

Thunderduck Mon 31-Aug-09 21:14:01

It's ok
You are kidding right?

I like Erik spelled that way.
Leslie is ok.
Most definitely not Ernie.

TwoPersephone Tue 01-Sep-09 09:02:48

I only like Isolde

Tommy Tue 01-Sep-09 09:07:12

don't like any of them I'm afraid

Brutally honestly, I don't like any of your girl's names, sorry.

How about Violet or May / Mae - similar but much prettier IMO.

Erik is nice though, although I'd spell it Eric.

pasturesnew Tue 01-Sep-09 09:21:24

Nancy - nice
Isolde - really lovely
Ione - I would always mispell and mishear this as Iona
Daisey-May - if you really HAVE to please spell it Daisy May, then it is OK, otherwise not, sorry.
Viola - nice
Violetta - sounds silly somehow
Tinker-Belle - absolutely ridiculous, I'm afraid

Erik - really like this, but prefer the spelling Eric
Leslie - not great but acceptable
Ernie - actually I quite like this (assuming it would be short for Ernest)

seeker Tue 01-Sep-09 09:22:10

You are joking, I presume?

ludog Tue 01-Sep-09 13:26:07

Nancy..... ok(ish)
Isolde......nice, but prefer Iseult
Violetta....don't like,sorry
Tinker-Belle....oh dear! of the bunch
