My dd2 is going to be called Maisie, and we already have Millie. Goes nicely with Matilda

Roopoo Tue 27-Oct-09 15:39:54

I love it xx (also like Millie a lot as well)

Sorry, I don't really like it. It's a baby's name, not a grown up's.

I really like Maisie, my friend's DD is Maise Louise -she's gorgeous.

Matilda is beautiful too -on my own shortlist- but I'm not sure they go together well, possibly a bit too similar? Esp if their friends shortened them to Mattie and Maisie!

I nearly had it for DD but was put off by DH who thought it was a little girls name. We then thought of calling her May with the nickname of Maisie. Not conventional but at least she would have something to fall back on if she wanted to be a hard hitting barrister of something!

I do like it though.

Maisie Louise, I mean

I just imagine if I would like to be called it. I thought it sounded quite 'cute' and I am not sure I want to sound cute at 26. I like names you can use a grown up alternative for once you grow out of the 'cute' phase. It is very lovely for a baby/child though.

Love Maisie, but do think that whilst it's very cute and sweet on a toddler, it's little harder for a rebellious teenager to carry off and a sassy business woman IYSWIM.

Really don't like Maisie at all (sorry to any mums of) but I think it goes well enough with Matilda.

Roopoo Tue 27-Oct-09 16:38:43

Maybe I should have a rethink.......

ZZZenAgain Tue 27-Oct-09 16:46:20

no, it #s the same with almost every name, some people will like it , others won't.

If you and dh like it, go for it. But you did ask us what we think

Besom Tue 27-Oct-09 16:52:46

I know a lovely 9yo Maisie, so I like it.

PumpkinJollster Tue 27-Oct-09 16:54:14

LOVE Maisie - but it is a name of one of our cats blush

Is Matilda always Matilda or does she get shortened?

Cos Maisie sounds like a shortening and Matilda a full name... IYSWIM...

Roopoo Tue 27-Oct-09 17:56:42

We call our Matilda Tilly..xx

ZZenAgain - No your right I definately wanted honest opinions which is why I posted on here as I always get them

yogabird Tue 27-Oct-09 17:59:25

love it - have one she loves too

diddl Tue 27-Oct-09 18:27:51

I like it, although always had a feeling it was short for something like Margaret?

MRSwereWOOLFhasabroomofherown Tue 27-Oct-09 18:50:08

It's okay. Matilda is a lovely strong name though and don't like Maisie quite as much as that.

sophiesmummie Tue 27-Oct-09 19:00:47

Really don't like Maisy/Maisie at all, I'm afraid.

But it's your baby and your opinion should matter most, not ours smile.

evaangel2 Tue 27-Oct-09 19:05:12

I like the name, our hamsters called Maisie
but it would not be my ideal childs name but that imo

PumpkinJollster Tue 27-Oct-09 19:22:57

Maisie and Tilly work

Maisie and Matilda sound like Billy and Edward (i.e. one name is more formal than the other). As opposed to William and Edward, or Billy and Ted.

Dunno if I am making sense - I am to me grin!

Gorgeous name-Julie Walters' dd is Maisie
I did have a labrador called Maisie which is why my dd rejected the name.

I took DD to baby clinic yesterday and the 4 baby girls in front of us were all called Maisie!!!
