Have one dd Katie Rose. Dd 2 due any time. Consensus on ' Carly Iris ' please? Have gone off previous choice of Susannah ( put off by all three sons' reactions tbh)( but think we all like Carly)

I like it, not popular or too common

cece Tue 22-Sep-09 22:21:13

Seems fine but I quite like Cally too.

pogleswife Tue 22-Sep-09 22:21:36

thanks! ( seem to have created two threads btw
sorry)Good to have a positive first response

I like Carly, its a name everybody knows but there wont be 7 in her class so she wont be Carly A or what ever.

Not keen on Iris.

Just to be contrary ... I like Iris but not Carly. But follow your instinct and don't listen to an old trout on the internet.

Not too sure about Iris myself tbh. Love the flower though, and the meaning. Any suggestions gratefully accepted; think we will go with Carly though. Thanks

Not keen on Carly.

I like Carly, but Katie and Carly are quite hard to say as a pair of names.

Thanks for all the comments. I know what you mean about "katie and Carly". but there'll be an Andrew in between? Carly Dawn??

I LOVE Clara. I think it's much classier and sweet than Carly, which is nice, btu also a bit um... oh, i cant define it, I just prefer Clara. Iris is ok, or there are lots of other floral names out there - Ivy, Heather, Briony, or Bethany.
I'm utterly stuck on my DD name, so good luck with yours.

pippel Wed 23-Sep-09 08:36:17

I think it needs a long middle name like Carly Josephine or Carly Elizabeth

Botbot Wed 23-Sep-09 08:52:55

I think Carly is a bit 'of its time' - I know a few in their late 20s so it must have been popular in the early 80s. But it's actually quite pretty and probably ripe for revival. Love Iris.

Thanks all - especially pippel, because that's perfect: Carly Elizabeth it is! ( or will be ...)

She's here (smile) ! Three days old and l
ovely. All well. Went off Carly last minute
when heard it was name of tv programme( 'I Carly'? I think it was. ) So, she's Carolyn Elizabeth.

Carly Iris. Think it goes well with your other dd's name. A few years ago I would have said no to Carly as it was quite common but haven't heard of one for ages.
