Girls names with -Ella, -lily, -mae, -Rae, -lee or any variation

Following on from my name thread and a couple of threads I've seen about rochelle from the Saturdays new baby,I can't help but cringe when I see any of the above e.g. Gracie-Mae

I am being VVVV judgey pants but I find it so overdone, twee and chavvy.

I'm ready for my flaming!

You sound like a miserable old trout, people can call their children what they like. How judgy and unpleasant you sound.

It's vile? VILE YOU SAY?!

Is it dreadful and indecent too?

I use one of those as a middle name for my baby as it is similar to my own name. It isn't hyphenated but quite frankly it isn't your name so don't see why it would bother you! Hmm

Americans have plenty to say about "redneck" and "trailer trash"names.

Ffs nice to know my daughters name is vile and common. She is an Elinor hyphen. She is Ellie for short.

She is named Elinor because its welsh and we live in wales and Ellie just stuck ad we liked it. MAE because my lovely great Aunt was called MAE.

is that ok? Dd is 7 now and to be honest when we named her Ellie Mae was not common at all, at least not round here. She is the only Ellie Mae in her school.

It has quite upset me this thread. Yy i need to get a life etc

Er oops i didnt realise this was a zombie thread. Ive already commented twice under different name changes. Blush

I agree it us extremely common and overused, think outside the box people! ??

ghostmous3 · 20/10/2014 21:57

Well it wasnt extremely common and overused when I named dd 7 years ago mrsstanners

Alisvolatpropiis · 20/10/2014 22:03

Names are commonly used for a reason.

Many might not be to my taste but the above remains true.

Turns out I have posted on this thread before too, to point out that far worse than -May/Rose etc are the poor little girls who were called Daisy- with nothing after the hyphen. That I cannot get my head around. Why didn't the registrar in question say something?

I don't have any children but, for what it's worth, these are my favourite girl's names:





No boy's names, I'm afraid !

Minikievs · 23/10/2014 22:28

Zombie thread but I'm dying to know what the OP eventually named her child. Arabella-Gabriella-Clarissa-Hermione Pompkinson-Smythe?

Well I have two boys with v plain but strong names (think apostles). If I'd had girls they'd have been called Catherine Lucy and Emily Jane but I really think May is so pretty. I came across it about 10 years ago with a student, and every time I had anything to do with her I thought about what a lovely name she had. I feel the same way about Alices and Sophies.
