We're TATTC (thinking about TTC!) so this is not urgent! DH has his heart set on a name for a girl, but I'm not 100% sure.
I'm liking Constance at the moment. What do you think?

I think Constance is a beautiful name. I know a Constance, but she's known as Connie.

I think it's Irish, isn't it?

saadia Thu 08-Oct-09 11:15:08

I like it

Tambajam Thu 08-Oct-09 11:16:56

Like it.

I love it.

I have to warn you though, that I wanted it for dd but couldn't because part of dd's last name is a potentially embarrassing name starting Con..... And she says that the ONLY think she likes about her last name is that it stopped me calling her Constance!

I don't think it's specifically Irish, although all the 'virtue" names used to be popular with Roman Catholics.

DD1's best friend at nursery in Brussels was a French Constance.

Lovely. We liked it but we weren't so keen on Connie.

The only Constance (Connie) I know got called Miss Lingus by all her male friends. She was German so didn't really get it grin!

Aer Lingus - maybe that's where the irish connection comes in!!!!

One thinks precocious

castille Thu 08-Oct-09 11:50:04

I love it.

DH doesn't, so we couldn't use itangry

rocketupbum Thu 08-Oct-09 13:20:01

I love it love it love it! My BF DD is a Connie and she is fab!

sweet name, know one myself and adorable little girl.

I bloody love this name but dh wouldnever entertain it. It was also my grandmothers name.

I also love the name Patience.

TeamEdwardTango Thu 08-Oct-09 14:14:52

What is it with these DH's not appreciating a good name? grin

I quite like Cornelia too. It's a family name.

Patience is lovely, but I'd have to be militant that she was always Patience and never Pat!

teamedward: you set that your DH had his heart set on a name?

crazycat34 Thu 08-Oct-09 16:44:52

Constance is a beautiful name. Serene, feminine, gracious, strong and independent.

TeamEdwardTango Thu 08-Oct-09 22:03:32

Maggie is DH's choice

pranma Thu 08-Oct-09 22:50:12

I have a very beautiful dgd named Constance Violet.She is usually Connie which imho is a beautiful name.

TheDemonicButDandyLioness Thu 08-Oct-09 23:02:14

I haven't heard it for ages until now on this thread. I really like it.

Classic, unusual (these days) and feminine without being girlie.

TeamEdwardTango Thu 08-Oct-09 23:04:42

Ok, so now I just need to conceive twin girls so I can use Maggie and Constance. grin

Any tips?! wink
