It reminds me of Golden Girls

BelleWatling Sat 26-Sep-09 22:50:45

Love it!

"I am Blanche DuBois. It means "White Woods." (southern accent)

It was on my list. DH turned his nose up.

I don't like it, makes me think of blanching veg.

At least you won't need to worry about her going to grammar school as she'll be a Vegas showgirl, non?

cheesesarnie Sat 26-Sep-09 23:00:26

i think it depends on accent as well some accents it sounds quite some it doesnt.

I adore the name Blanche,very 1920s I think. Reminds me of Blanche Ingram in Jane Eyre

No no no! Blanche on coronation street is a miserable old hag, you have to wait for them to kill of her character first.

Also think it sounds quite harsh, not pretty imo.

I love it - it's a family name in my family. Wish I'd thought of it. Oh well, just have to have another daugher now grin

Sorry, not keen.
I can't get past Blanche from Corrie.

LynetteScavo Sun 11-Oct-09 10:50:03

Not to my liking. Sorry.

A baby owl, whose name was Blanche
Perched bravely on a narrow branch
And wondered whether she should try
To jump up and attempt to fly...

She bravely counted up to ten
And then, she counted ten again
She jumped! She found she couldn't fly
And lay there, looking at the sky

"It's lucky that that branch", said she
"was on the ground, and not the tree."

Then off she ran and flapped her wings
And said "These are most awkward things
"For though I skip and jump quite high
"I'm still no nearer to the sky..."

And falling down, she gave a howl
And wished she'd never been an owl.
And finally her mother found her
And put a great big wing around her
And said "Dear Blanche, don't be upset!
You haven't grown your feathers yet."

It reminds me of Blamange, and of Corrie

Disasterous- blanche from corro, general whinging old ladies etc.

bess23 Sun 11-Oct-09 11:32:55

Sorry don't like it

ConFuschias Sun 11-Oct-09 11:34:37

I'm not a fan either. Makes me think of blanching potatoes

slipperthief Sun 11-Oct-09 11:35:56

old old old lady name

Kayzr Sun 11-Oct-09 11:36:06

Sorry but I also think of Corrie.

Cies Sun 11-Oct-09 11:39:55

I think elegant 1920s ladies drinking martinis in cocktail dresses.

No - ditto confushias.

PoppyIsApain Sun 11-Oct-09 16:34:08

Oh please dont do this to your dd

RainRainGoAway Sun 11-Oct-09 16:39:17

In many ways, it is great, but agree with Remy. Blanche from golden girls was such a letchy old lady with shoulder pads and a penchant for pastels that I would be loathe to use it.

Oh Blanche, stop blubbering
