Two names on my mind

Wilma

and

Ludovic (Ludo)

I know Wilma screams The Flintstones, but it's not shown on TV anymore is it? So shouldn't be a big issue for this generation.

Yes Ludovic has been triggered by the (very smug looking) contestent from Masterchef, but it's name I've always been fond of.

What do you think?

Really?

Salonly Thu 15-Oct-09 20:48:01

It's the hormones.

I've always loved the name Ludovic...fond childhood memories. smile

Wilma is nice too.

Ludo is the name of the massive orange monster thing in Labyrinth if that helps grin

TanyaBranning Thu 15-Oct-09 21:05:51

Not to my taste at all

ADragonIs4LifeNotJustHalloween Thu 15-Oct-09 21:06:52

Why would you do that to a child???

LynetteScavo Thu 15-Oct-09 21:11:48

Because it's cool.

Go Ludovic/Wilma!

Love Ludo (and Labyrinth grin).
dh first girlfriend was Wilma! Lovely name, but not for me!

HerHonesty Thu 15-Oct-09 21:58:31

no.

piscesmoon Thu 15-Oct-09 22:01:06

No and no.

Yeah he is rather smug looking.... (Dh making me watch every episode) I think he looks a bit like a sad puppy dog?

As for the names... erm no not for me, I can see why you might like them but the associations with Wilma are too strong and Ludovic is nice but just too foreign, child would forever be asked where they were from - 'no ORIGINALLY'.

Salonly-I've been seeing the flinstones quite a lot lately in the mornings on TV (was just thinking the other morning that it was strange seeing it as i hadnt seen it on TV in so long).

IMoveTheStarsForNoOne Thu 15-Oct-09 23:59:49

LUDO

Sorry blush
couldn't resist.

I LOVE Ludo! It's gorgeous.

IKWYM about Wilma, it's a really sweet name, but maybe the male versions, Wilbur, Wilf are nicer?? Wilma does sound quite american. Dunno, like it but not convinced.

Ludo/Ludovic is a great name, but Wilma will make people think of the Flintstones. I know someone called Wilma and everyone (including me blush shouts ' Wiiiiilllmmaaaaa!!' at her like Fred Flintstone every time they greet her or want her attention. Do not inflict a lifetime of that on a child grin

I really like Ludovic/Ludwig, nickname Ludo!

Wilma, I'm not so keen on, don't know why...

Ludovic is cute - but I associate it with a little boy in the film La Vie En Rose which is about a boy who wants to be/feels like a girl. It's very funny, and the name is great.

Ludo is great.

Not so enamoured of Wilma.

lalin Sat 17-Oct-09 21:26:15

please not Wilma, Ludo is OK but I beg you do not burden a child with WILMA

jellybeans Sat 17-Oct-09 22:02:59

no and no, sorry!

Wilma is a bit weak sounding. I prefer Zelda But I like your style direction, lol. Ludovic is good. Love Ludo. I'm wondering if O names aren't a tiny bit (shhshs) over now.??
