Underused and pretty or better suited to an animal?

Awful. It'd be fine for a cow but not a baby.

I like it, but I also have to say it in Fifi's accent!

Pretty name, but I would worry child would not suit it - it's so girly. Also, she'd get nn Primmy which I'm not keen on. What about using it as a middle name to play safe?!

lovely. but then i have a buttercup so who am i to talk...

better suited to the beasts

Where I'm from (Northern Ireland) it's a name only found on sturdy staunch protestant middle aged women with sensible not good I'm afraid!

After that it's fifi as mrmump says or one of the daughters in The Darling Buds of May (sadly not CZJ).

HerHonesty - you have a dd called Buttercup?! Wow! I have definitely not heard that one before!

TheMysticMasseuse Thu 29-Oct-09 22:03:54

why???? call her Rose, it's much classier

I think it is a cow's name.

bunny, as a middle name. we get very intersting reactions. some hate hate hate and laugh openly, and others just love it and say it is very charming. it has a special meaning to DH and I so i'm not really that bothered what people think!

It's a charming name and I think the wife-of-a-serial-killer reaction is likely to be a pretty uncommon one.

Would it really be abbreviated to Primmy? Perhaps we live in a freakish neighbourhood, but round here all the children are known by their given names (which I find quite strange, having grown up in an era when every Jennifer was known as Jenny and every David was known as Dave).

Shamelessly girly, I love it

lovemybabyboy Sat 31-Oct-09 12:05:39

I don't like it sorry.

Vivia Sat 31-Oct-09 12:21:06
