What are your thoughts? A nicer name than Joy and I think we had a Great Granny with the name so it must have been in circulation at some point?

Quite like but could it be hard to live up to/too much opportunity for teasing?

Someone in a Jackie Collins (modern equivalent) novel. I would move away from the heavenly names like Serafina and Bliss. What if she grows up to be an enormous hairy old dyke?

Not my cup of tea, I am afraid. Sounds a bit twee.

What if she turns out to be a grumpy wee soul?

I know of a Bliss.

Sisters called Ocean and Precious.

Not my cup of tea but then I like more 'serious' names.

only in dodgy rap songs I imagine

I know of a little girl called Liberty Bliss - quite original I thought wink

MmeLindt Thu 01-Oct-09 17:32:07

Liberty Bliss is sweet. It is quite cute as a middle name.

"be an enormous hairy old dyke?"
Nice choice of phrase there hmm

ProfYaffle Thu 01-Oct-09 17:35:30

I've heard of a little girl called Bliss. I think it's quite nice.

hullygully Thu 01-Oct-09 17:39:24

Dis - thank you. I thought it had a certain ring to it.

We have friends with Bliss as their surname.

Not sure as a first name though.

Recently heard it in an episode (Love and Monsters) of Doctor Who - human, female, pretty, absorbed by Peter Kay's green skinned Absorbalov ...

Personally I'm quite turned on by the thought of an enormous hairy dyke called Bliss.

Bliss is the name of a prem. baby charity, thats what came to mind. Don't think I'd saddle my kid with a name like that, would cause too many problems and teasing.

LaaDeDa Thu 01-Oct-09 17:55:05

Yes, a few years ago. It was Bliss-Ella. Actually suited the little girl but i'm not totally struck on it.

mathanxiety Thu 01-Oct-09 19:43:22

Bliss would end up as Blister, although it's a nice name, imo.

janeite Thu 01-Oct-09 19:46:32


Joy is lovely. Or Faith, Honour, Constance, Hope - something like that.

southeastastra Thu 01-Oct-09 19:48:42

yes i knew one once, it's quite nice, don't mind it

lucky1979 Thu 01-Oct-09 23:22:19

She might get nicknamed Blister pretty rapidly. On the upside she wouldn't have to have a stage name if she became a stripper

I'm afraid i associate it with both sex and drugs, so not a name I'd be giving a little girl. I don't like virtue names (not that bliss is a virtue anyway - much too free and easy!).

simplesusan Fri 02-Oct-09 13:02:50

Yes I do know one. It is actually her middle name but her parents call her Bliss.
It did seem strange at first but we have got used to it.

thedolly Fri 02-Oct-09 13:14:24

I'm with nooka, there is something 'sexual' about the word/name Bliss - sorry.

LaurieFairyCake Fri 02-Oct-09 13:16:08

weird, I like Liberty Bliss but not Bliss on its own as a first name

pagwatch Fri 02-Oct-09 13:18:26

Bliss is a lap dancer.

But that is the way my head works

angel1976 Fri 02-Oct-09 20:18:12

I never thought of it as a proper name tbh but came across it for the first time today as a name while reading this sad article about stillbirth and I thought what a beautiful name and how appropriate. So am loving it at the moment...
