Do you associate this name with anything?
codenameduchess · 21/10/2019 14:53
I'm assuming MN represents a decent cross section and me and DH have different views on a name, he thinks too many people will associate it but I think the reference is old and niche enough now that it isn't a problem for most people.
It's for DC2, sec unknown, if it's a girl I've suggested (and love) Inara
TreesSandSea · 21/10/2019 14:54
Nope. Means nothing to me.
Velveteenfruitbowl · 21/10/2019 14:54
Well I know someone by that name but otherwise no.
Nonnymum · 21/10/2019 14:55
I've never heard of it before so don't associate it with anything.

I don't associate it with anything, but can't find a way of saying it without it sounding whiny.

Without googling, I think it’s a goddess name, but can’t remember any details.
AudacityOfHope · 21/10/2019 15:02
It's the name of a charity I donate to.

I immediately started humming "I don't care cause i'm still free
you can't take the sky from me" so it was an immediate association but I think you might be right about it being fairly niche. Obviously if they remake it as they seem to be doing with everything else right now, it might become problematic though.
Assuming I have the same assocation of course.

Firefly right? I personally wouldn’t use it because it’s almost guaranteed that the show will be remade in the next 10 years
Shadow1234 · 21/10/2019 15:28
I have not heard of it before, so no associations for me.
RosieRi · 21/10/2019 15:29
I’ve never heard it before so no associations
TheSandman · 21/10/2019 15:31
First thought? The companion (courtesan ) from the excellent SF show Firely.
AlmaMartyr · 21/10/2019 15:32
Firefly. It is a lovely name though and I wouldn't think it was weird.
userabcname · 21/10/2019 15:33
Never heard it before
Whoops75 · 21/10/2019 15:37
No known association
Sounds made up
lifesnotaspectatorsport · 21/10/2019 15:38
Yeah, I recognised it, took me a minute or so to remember Firefly. But she was an interesting character and I don't think it really matters if you love the name. Does it exist outside the show?
TheSandman · 21/10/2019 15:48
she was an interesting character
Name one character from that show that wasn't!
RickOShay · 21/10/2019 15:58
I like it.
I have never heard of it.
Clettercletterthatsbetter · 21/10/2019 16:08
I thought Firefly, but I don’t think many people would.
codenameduchess · 21/10/2019 16:24
Pretty split then! DH thinks everyone will make the firefly link and he doesn't want to name his daughter after a space prostitute. He also vetoed Morena!
I don't know how I'd feel about a remake- it's a travesty it only got 1 season but you can't replace that cast!
FriedasCarLoad · 21/10/2019 16:29
Never heard of it. Although I’m not sure I ever saw Firefly.
Scoobygang7 · 21/10/2019 17:25
@Dinosauratemydaffodils hello fellow browncoat
Whoops75 · 21/10/2019 18:44
What about Morah or Morag

It’s ok. When I saw it I thought it was a car model. Ie Vauxhall Inara.
