I love it, I know one, she's 13yo, she's the brightest bubbliest teen you could ever meet smile

It's unutterably beautiful. Does it mean 'hyacinth'? There aren't enough Jacintas in the world.

I know 2- both lovely women. One my mothers age, and the other a bit younger than me.

How do you pronounce Jacinta?

pointydogg Sun 08-Nov-09 16:48:35

don't like it

victoriascrumptious Sun 08-Nov-09 16:52:36

Jah-sin-ta? It's rare around these parts, in fact i've never met anyone with that name or heard in before. If it's said Jah-sin-ta I like it.

Roopoo Sun 08-Nov-09 17:16:56

Yep that's how it's prounounced..
I do love it.........

Does it go with Matilda??

As children we used to call my sister, Jacqueline, 'Jacinthe' as a kind of 'exotic' take on her name. Not sure I would use in real grown up life though.

It's heard more often in Ireland, not at all unusual there.

salvadory Sun 08-Nov-09 22:10:05

Very Irish (all ones I know are either old Irish ladies or have Irish parents) and I love it, would pick it but Dh says no

Roopoo Sun 08-Nov-09 22:14:12

I just read in in a book and fell in love with it...

VerityBrulee Sun 08-Nov-09 22:15:23

Oooh, that's one of those names thats set's my teeth on edge, would have been popular in parts of Dublin in the '70s.

So that would be a no.

Jacinta was the name of a trawler my dad was on!

lotspot Mon 09-Nov-09 01:07:50

I know two, both 16/17

and in my opinion it is a really horrible name!! might even compete for being my most disliked name!!!

Sorry to all Jacintas but it does something funny to me

MamaLazarou Mon 09-Nov-09 08:48:22

I think it goes with Matilda, yes.

Disenchanted3 Mon 09-Nov-09 08:51:04

I don't like it, sorry.

Bumperlicioso Mon 09-Nov-09 09:37:01

Don't like, though I DO list Jocasta, but it rhymes with out surname grin

MaggieMonday Mon 09-Nov-09 14:48:47

Really not keen, although I know a lovely woman whose real name is Jacinta. She goes by Jazzy though. Much nicer.

Not nice.
