What do you think of the girls name Shireen?
LenoVintura · 18/10/2019 20:01
Game of Thrones. Burnt at the stake.
Stressedoutaboutinlaws · 18/10/2019 20:02
I would think its not a name...
Pantalaimon88 · 18/10/2019 20:03
Yup, it just makes me think of the poor little girl from GoT who was burnt at the stake by her crazy parents.
It’s a no from me.

It means sweetie in my language, if we see something sweet or call children sweetheart we would say "shireen/shireenak"
Take that away from my thinking, I don't really think it's a nice name tbh

Scarred by a horrendous childhood disease and then publicly burned at the stake by her parents.
Not a great story behind the name.

I love it. It’s very game of thrones, but nowhere near as bad as khaleesi. I’d use it.

I know a Sherene who is thoroughly lovely, but I would not go with the GOT spelling.
sliversloth · 18/10/2019 20:08
I've never seen game of thrones, I knew there was a character called Shireen but I didn't know anything about it. Not a great story but surely people will forget about it a few years down the line
LordProfFekkoThePenguinPhD · 18/10/2019 20:08
It’s an Persian name (Shirin).
LordProfFekkoThePenguinPhD · 18/10/2019 20:09
‘An’ Persian? Duh.

I know a Shireen - in her mid 50s. Of Persian descent.
Sparklypurpleunicornsaremyfav · 18/10/2019 20:14
I'd think you meant charlene

I know it was a name long before Game of Thrones, but the first thing I think of is the character who was murdered by her religious fanatic parents.
sliversloth · 18/10/2019 20:27
I've been looking for Persian names so that's partly why I've been thinking about using Shireen but it's had very negative comments so maybe not
DontCallMeShitley · 18/10/2019 20:31
Sounds like something from a sewing machine, sorry.
InsertFunnyUsername · 18/10/2019 20:33
I do think of GOT but I like it.
Noroof · 18/10/2019 20:36
Ok if you're from the Glasgow area then its slang for your fanny. So no.
Oopsinamechangedagain2020 · 18/10/2019 20:36
I knew a Sherene and Sirin when I was growing up both pronouced the same way. I think it's a lovely name but I don't like the way you've spelt it.
Shakirasma · 18/10/2019 20:41
My neighbour ( aged in her 20s) is called Shireen, close family call her Reen and Reenie. I like it.
LookingGlassMilk · 18/10/2019 20:41
I love it, it's the name of a childhood friend. There was another girl in my year at school with the same name. They would both be in their mid 30s now. I don't consider it to be a rare or unusual name, I'm surprised at the reaction of some posters.
ButterflyBitch · 18/10/2019 20:41
Pretty sure it was the name of Rose Tyler’s friend on Doctor Who
I’d go with it’s a bit chav but feel free to ignore me
