Sorry for having two threads on the go.

DH and i have actually managed to pull the same face: 'hmm, maybe' about this name.

It's as close as we've got to agreeing on something!

We like Tara but it rhymes directly with my name. That would be a bit twee ...

So ... Tarina - thoughts please?

(Names we cant agree on:
me: Darcy, Tabitha + Harriett.
DH: Francesca)

Not a fan sorry, it sounds like a brand or the female version of Taurus.

What about Cara, Coral, Tia?

Like all your other listed names, except Darcey.

Love all your other names but Tarina doesn't do it for me at all, sorry.

It sounds made up iykwim?

waits for someone to say it's a classic

I instantly thought tsarina. And 'oh dear'.

fluffyraggies Sun 21-Jul-13 20:28:46

Lol - i love mumsnet grin

Schmaltzing - no, mines the 'Sorry if it's been done but Darcy ..' one. I'll read that one you mentioned.

Tara is lovely, really dislike Tarina. Sounds made up and makes me think of road tar.

UnrequitedSkink Sun 21-Jul-13 20:32:19

It does sound a bit like a car...or petfood!

AKissIsNotAContract Sun 21-Jul-13 20:33:50

Not keen. Marina is lovely.

TSSDNCOP Sun 21-Jul-13 20:35:31

Made up and contrived. Odd when your other names are nice.

fluffyraggies Sun 21-Jul-13 20:40:32

Tarina is old Irish apparently - meaning special place or hill ........

However - you are all right, Tarina is now in the bin.

We are now bickering over Marina. We both liked it - but then DH says it reminds him of meringue (the pudding) confused and i said i'd rather spell it with an 'e' - Merina. He said no.

UnrequitedSkink Sun 21-Jul-13 20:40:52

It sounds like a name my dd would make up when playing princesses hmm

AKissIsNotAContract Sun 21-Jul-13 20:45:31

Marina is a royal name and it's top of our list for when I eventually get pregnant.

BigW Sun 21-Jul-13 20:47:24

Not for me I'm afraid. Like your other names though. I know that does not help.

What about Thea?

fluffyraggies Sun 21-Jul-13 20:49:13

puppy i'm old too wink i've just referred to Bernard Cribbins reading the Arabella and Mortimer books on another thread. I don't think anyone knows what i meant grin <i'll get my coat>

We like Carina ....

give it time .... one of us will find something wrong with it!

mulling over Katrina now too.

Oh, by the way - Tarina was being pronounced sort of T'rina. Not Taaaarina.

But it's binned anyway.

Littlecherublegs Sun 21-Jul-13 20:51:28

Don't like Tarina or Marina.

How about:

PuppyMonkey Sun 21-Jul-13 20:55:23

I love MN threads like this where op says what do you think of I dunno Maria or something. And people pop up saying they don't like it, but what about.... AnyTotallyRandomName grin

Thisisanoutrage Sun 21-Jul-13 20:56:09

Not keen on Tarina. I met a Terenia once. I quite liked her name.

Littlecherublegs Sun 21-Jul-13 21:02:08

Ooh crossed posts - I quite like Katrina.

Also thought of Stella, Catriona, Cara, Cora, Kristina, Coraline, Kirsten, Skylar, Hester, Esther, Astrid
