Dora is very cute but I dont know - think it could be too explorer associated. That said, it could be just because I have a 4 year old dd who has been obsessed with Dora for the past 2.5 years, so it could be just my association ifykim?
Wanted to consider it for both dcs, but got veteoed by DH on explorer grounds.
I see his point. I feel the programme is the same generation as my kids (and yours) and therefore the name has already been 'taken' by the TV series and my child would have to grow up with it. I wouldn't feel it was a no-no if the TV programme was from thirty years ago. In fact, dc2 has the same name as a popular children's TV series from when DH was a little boy.
