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

Thoughts?

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.

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

First thought? The companion (courtesan ) from the excellent SF show Firely.

Do you associate this name with anything?

Firefly. It is a lovely name though and I wouldn't think it was weird.

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?

she was an interesting character

Name one character from that show that wasn't! Smile

I thought Firefly, but I don’t think many people would.

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!

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