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

We met a young American girl named Maureen and I was quite taken with it.

Maureen? oooooh she's cheap....sorry couldn't resist grin

mazzystartled Mon 12-Oct-09 20:16:51

I think I quite like it
Still got middle aged connotations though

Sorry, but I really do not like way it sounds. IMO the 'Mau' sound is harsh and not very appealing. I prefer Marie or Marina.

lovemybabyboy Mon 12-Oct-09 20:54:44

I like it.

CuppaTeaJanice Mon 12-Oct-09 20:55:05

I can't imagine a Maureen not wearing a tabard. It's a name I associate with cleaning/dinner ladies.

Maureen's lovely. But please don't call your baby after her. Sorry.

Oh no it's baaaaad!
I don't like any of the een ones, Maureen, Doreen, Eileen, Noreen. Kathleen is probably the best of a bad bunch but much prefer Katherine anyway.

I like Maura better.

LyraSilvertongue Mon 12-Oct-09 21:12:56

Any name ending in -een is terrible in my opinion.

LyraSilvertongue Mon 12-Oct-09 21:14:24

You'll be suggesting Brenda next grin

ja9 Mon 12-Oct-09 21:24:57

(and i think any name with 'au' in it sounds awful - maud, audrey etc bleurgh)

Pyrocanthus Mon 12-Oct-09 21:40:05

Even Laura?

Maureen, give us a hand down here in the bar love.

Maureen is a legend, think of all the famous Maureens.... er Lipman, Mlove, er....

victoriascrumptious Mon 12-Oct-09 21:43:38

Maureen smells of poo

MaureenMLove Mon 12-Oct-09 21:53:47

shock <<sob>> sad <<wail>>

Bastards! You're all bastards!!!

<<runs away crying to play with the nice cuddly, fluffy people on that other mummy chat room>>

SparkyfartDust Mon 12-Oct-09 21:54:59

yep,I'm with cuppateajanice. Maureen will always conjure up a comfortable,tabard wearing, curly permed lady for me.

lol at 'pest control officer' as most likely career for Maureens.

MaureenMLove Mon 12-Oct-09 21:54:59

AND I haven't got a tabbard either!!! grin

SlartyBartFast Mon 12-Oct-09 21:56:19
