Willow for a girl; my friend just named her baby Willow Grace. It sounds like that awful show Will & Grace!

I think it's pretty.
How often does anyone get called by both names together anyway? First week of life and Christenings.....
And I like Will & Grace!

But in a few years time the show will probably be ancient history. I like it, although Willow is a little New Agey for me personally.

I really like that name. My friends daughter's middle name is Willow. After the Buffy character

SoupDragon · 05/02/2008 09:40

I like Willow. Although it's one of those names that can backfire if the child turns out to be not willowy at all. Grace is another of those names. I still love the names though.

suzywong · 05/02/2008 09:40

nope, don't like it as a first name
second name fine

she will be called "willy" or derivation thereof throughout her adolescence.

sorry, touched a nerve with me there as dd1 is getting called an unkind nickname at school by a nasty girl in her class

chrissnow · 05/02/2008 10:00

I quite like Willow, and well Grace is a beautyful name, and noting wrong with the show Will& Grace,imo

However, wasn't that german shephard Dog on Eastender (Robbies Dog) called Willow?

chrissnow · 05/02/2008 14:46

The dog was called Well 'Ard!!
Now that would be a fantastic name for a little boy

MoreSpamThanGlam · 05/02/2008 14:48

I like that "awful" programme Will and Grace - in fact, I am Karen.

Pass me another Martini would you sweetie?

MaryAnnSingleton · 05/02/2008 14:49

Willow and Grace are nice separately, though I knew of a dog called Willow, but not together.

nailpolish · 05/02/2008 14:50

jellies · 05/02/2008 14:52
