Hi! FTM here. Not sure what we're having yet but I'm thinking Charlotte if it's a girl and Terry if it's a boy.

What do you think??

Yes to Charlotte (although it's a little dull)
No to Terry. No deep reason just a name I don't like

Yesthatismychildsigh · 21/01/2023 15:18

Charlotte is fine. Terry just made me laugh.

AnotherNameChangeYes · 21/01/2023 15:20

Terry?

Ticktacktoe1 · 21/01/2023 15:20

Terry I’d it’s a boy. I think Terry is a good strong name. Terri if it’s a girl, or Regina works well too. Hope this helps and big hugs and kisses for your new bundle of joy! Xxxx mwah xxxxx

Ignore the haters, Terry is probably due a comback. I'd name with the full 'Terence' so he has options on which he prefers, though.

Maybe you'll start a trend. 😊

MissyB1 · 21/01/2023 15:23

Terry fine for a girl, far too dated and nerdy for a boy.

Charlotte, well it’s ok but a bit meh…

stairgates · 21/01/2023 15:24

Terry is definitely due a comeback! And love Charlotte

margegunderson · 21/01/2023 15:25

Terry is good. Terri is terrible.
How about June? 😀

KirstenBlest · 21/01/2023 15:54

I quite like Terence thinks Terence Stamp
Less keen on Terry thinks Terry Duckworth or Terry Scott

Aquamarine1029 · 21/01/2023 15:55

Terry is awful.

whirlyhead · 21/01/2023 15:56

Most every Charlotte I have met/know I haven’t liked so that’s put me off that name. It’s also very common. Terry is very 70s. Terence is ok though.

Whatever name you give them they will hate it when they’re older. That’s the way it goes! I could murder my mother for my name.

DillDanding · 21/01/2023 15:57

Arf at Terry. You can’t be serious.

Why ignore people? OP actually asked for opinions.

quietnightmare · 21/01/2023 16:07

Charlotte is ok and nn Lottie is cute

Terry? Oh no

Terrance, Terrian, Tristan, Troy, Tatum, Tarquin, Tyrion not much better but there you go

My DH is Terry, I am Terri - I feel victimised 😂😂

shinynewapple22 · 21/01/2023 16:35

I think with Terry you would be a trendsetter - it's that generation of names for people approximately in their 70s at the moment - so probably due a revival in around 10 years or so.

Notellinganyone · 21/01/2023 16:40

Charlotte is pleasant but dull. Terry is dreadful.

StampOnTheGround · 21/01/2023 16:42

Charlotte is nice, Terry is not at all.

Purplecatshopaholic · 21/01/2023 16:44

Agree with others. Charlotte is nice and inoffensive if a bit common. But Terry? Really? It’s a big No from me, terrible name.

oldhat85 · 21/01/2023 18:16

Thanks for the replies guys. You know I think you're right terry is a shit name come to think it. Will be choosing another Smile

Charlotte is very dull and i dislike the Charlie nickname

Terry not keen on but at least unusual. Terance would be cool

Thanks for posting this charlotte. It's very humiliating seeing these people taking about how shit my name is

garlictwist · 21/01/2023 20:22

Ive got a mate called Terry who we always tease for having an old man's name - and he's 37. So it's a no from me.

DuchessOfSausage · 21/01/2023 20:26

Terry like Dennis Waterman in Minder is ok but Dennis is nicer

Leffeandolives · 24/01/2023 22:15

Charlotte is fine although quite heavily used.

Terry is a no!
