What do you think of Dulcie as a girl's name? It's listed on Mumsnet's Baby Name Finder.

It is my DN's name.

I am not keen though, I am afraid

There's been a couple of Dulcie threads IIRC, personally I love it.

God no!

I think it's nice. It comes from 'dulcet' doesn't it, meaning sweet, so may be a lot to live up to!
Sounds like quite a posh name to me, a bit like Darcey.

Sounds like a fat girls name

I didn't know Darcey was posh?
Those who don't like it, can I ask why?

Honesty is fine I won't be offended.

I've always liked it smile

I love it. Doesn't it mean sweet and gentle? It's smashing,

Dulcie is a beautiful name. I know a 5 year old Dulcie and she is gorgeous.

I only know of Darcey Bussell who is prima ballerina so must be posh. That's where I got my theory from - and I'm sticking to it...grin

I used to know someone called Dulcie and I really didn't get on with her at all.

For that reason it has been tainted for me.

She was very posh by the way.

Is it pronounced "dulchy" or "dulsee"?

I prefer the former pronunciation, though I'm not mad about the name tbh. It's nice but reminds me of pudding.

i love it.

I love love love it- i was convinced i was having a girl because I wanted to call her Dulcie so much. But I'm expecting a boy,so now i have to think of boy's names that go nicely with Dulcie so i can use it for when I do have a girl

Not sure about Dulcie, think of the nickname potential?

Really like Darcy, but again - think of the nickname potential
