I saw a CV of that name and realised it is soooo rare..

is it a 60's name?

I like it, I'd be happy to hear it on a baby today.

isn't it a 50's name?

Do you like Abigail?

I think Coronation Street killed it. I have an Abigail though.

I think it's fine, I also like Abigail. I don't watch Coronation street though. grin

I love the name Gail. And Rita and Valerie.

You forgot Deirdrie, (aplogies to any non corrie fans). My SIL is Gail. I would go with Abigail.

Yes I don't mind it but you just never hear it anymore - yes Abigail is a lovely classic name. Abigails party lol

i think it has had its day which is shame cos it's quite pretty, apart from the woman on corrie that looks a bit like E.T grin

I know a couple of young Abigails who go by Gail.

Not keen on Deirdre but I like Audry.

I quite like it and Gaelle (the French spelling)
It's not too girly which certainly appeals to me. I'm intrigued by the character on Peep Show with that name and the University Challenge winner Gail Trimble has given it a different spin.
There is Gail from Coronation St but then her children are called Nicholas and Sarah aren't they? Sorry, if I've remembered that incorrectly, it's been a long time since I've watched it! smile
