These threads always upset someone. I don't see the point.

Sorry, only joined yesterday only meant it to be fun blush

Lol I know 4 people with names mentioned already, 3 of who are family membersgrin. Must have been a dull generation regarding names they're all similar ages: late 40's/50's.

Why would you want a name to be sexy?

I mean it's attractive and appealing i.e. it has sex appeal.

IceNoSlice Mon 28-Jan-13 09:03:33

Sorry OP, I'm grumpy this morning. Normally I just ignore if I don't like (as do most people I think).

Could be that my name was the subject of one of these threads and I'm peeved wink. Although someone did then come on to say my name 'chimed like a bell' grin

HoneyandRum Mon 28-Jan-13 09:04:32

and yet TomArchersSausage they managed to reproduce so at least someone wasn't turned off wink!

Given a few more years these'll be the latest must have ironic names used as a nod to the past like Ethel and Arthur and Stan are now.

They just haven't had enough time ripen yet.

Exactly, Noris WILL have his day

ArielThePiraticalMermaid Mon 28-Jan-13 09:11:49

Don't you think this is a bit mean? <troubled> Imagine if someone is having a proper bad day self-esteem wise, and they see their name?

HoneyandRum Mon 28-Jan-13 09:17:05

Joyce and Marjorie are actually on their way back in. I love Joyce, also my friend has a Sylvie.

I think Ariel that's it's usually your mum and dad's generation that have the least appealing names because you can't see them in any other light other than parents.

MolotovCocktail Mon 28-Jan-13 09:39:00

Norman, Norris, Egbert, Derek.

Doreen, Doris, Hilda, Noreen.

MolotovCocktail Mon 28-Jan-13 09:39:41

And Beryl.

bobthebuddha Mon 28-Jan-13 09:45:04

I don't see the point of these threads; doesn't it occur to the OPs that it might upset someone if they see their name? They are completely mean-spirited

HoneyandRum Mon 28-Jan-13 09:45:27

Beryl was my mum's second name! grin her first name was Vivienne

ArbitraryUsername Mon 28-Jan-13 09:47:44

My own first name is incredibly unsexy. And just generally horrible. I have no idea what my parents were thinking.

HoneyandRum Mon 28-Jan-13 09:48:30

We can stop, I think you're taking it in the wrong spirit as it wasn't meant that way. I had no idea this was a common theme.
