Pick your favourite please grin

(Dulcie Theodora might work too,but I don't like Hebe Clementine)

I like all of them except for Hebe - in our family Hebe is grandparents' stone garden statue and isn't it the name of a plant too?

All the others are lovely! I would put Dulcie in a slightly different category of names to Clementine and Theodora though....

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Tue 06-Aug-13 09:02:16

What do you mean by different category?

Rowlers Tue 06-Aug-13 09:03:12

To me they both sound like names from a joke period drama. Sorry don't like either!

Dulcie clementine - fantastic name!!

And yes Hebe is the Name of a plant and the Godess of youth in Greek mythology.

PoppyAmex Tue 06-Aug-13 09:04:42

Individually they're nice names, but together it sounds a bit try hard. Sorry, OP.

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Tue 06-Aug-13 09:06:24

S'alright,I certainly don't expect everyone to like them.
We do though wink

What's wrong with them then? We certainly aren't 'try hard' people,we just like these names.

DP prefers Hebe,and I prefer Dulcie.

Whatwhatwhat Tue 06-Aug-13 09:13:16

Very very very try hard. Sorry.

sonlypuppyfat Tue 06-Aug-13 09:15:04

I'm sorry they are not easy names to like

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Tue 06-Aug-13 09:15:24


We're not trying for anything except a name we both bloody like.

JC74 Tue 06-Aug-13 09:15:27

Dulcie Clementine smile

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Tue 06-Aug-13 09:15:56

<wanders back to the drawing board>

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Tue 06-Aug-13 09:16:35

Well at least 2 of you like one of them wink

PoppyAmex Tue 06-Aug-13 09:17:54

Frigg, I think the combination is just too much, but they could potentially work well with simpler middle names?

Rowlers Tue 06-Aug-13 09:18:41

Well choose whichever names you like! We are all just random strangers, after all.

minipie Tue 06-Aug-13 09:18:54

I like Hebe and Dulcie but combined with the middle names it's a bit much.

how about with a plainer/less unusual middle name...?

minipie Tue 06-Aug-13 09:19:25

x posted with Poppy!

bridgetsmum Tue 06-Aug-13 09:21:50

Don't like any of them,
Agree it's trying too hard.

GwendolineMaryLacey Tue 06-Aug-13 09:22:35

Not keen on the combinations but love Theodora.

hatsybatsy Tue 06-Aug-13 09:23:21

Hebe - only know one - not for me.

Dulcie - only know one - think this is ok actually.

Personally, I'd go for a shorter simpler middle name - to give her options when she's older. Clementine and theodora are both a bit of a mouthful.

PetraBaelish Tue 06-Aug-13 09:23:58

I like both Hebe and Theodora. And I don't think the combination is too 'try hard' or something (although who knows, the MNers would probably faint if they heard my DC's names; so maybe I'm not the right person to reassure you! grin)
I'm not keen at all on Dulcie; and Clementine is ok but a bit meh.
Really don't know what's so wrong with Hebe - I love Roman/ Greek gods/goddess names.
