What do you think? Is it Ouch cool, or bridge-player with her specs 'round her neck.
I'm just wondering, cos I have little to think about, whether or not the new bbc programme make it chavy? Or, would the people who take their inspiration from tv not touch a name like Nancy. I think it's quite cool; in a Lois/Margot kind of way.

Nancy Drew mysteries ! I think it's cool
cornsilk · 22/03/2008 13:44
I want a girl called Nancy now!
luckylady74 · 22/03/2008 13:45
The best girl name I've heard on here - far cooler than the usual ones. It was also my Nana's name, but she was not an average granny.
MadameCh0let · 22/03/2008 13:45
I'd forgotten about the Nancy Drew re-launch. Do you think there will be some baby Nancys soon. Is it the new Edith? Or is it more like the new Ruby?

i like it but cant help think of film sid and nancy and sid saying how could you nancy in 'that' voice. lovely name
dizzychixies · 22/03/2008 13:46
I like it too
hercules1 · 22/03/2008 13:46
Love the name, nancy.
MadameCh0let · 22/03/2008 13:48
I also like Pansy. I seriously thought about Pansy when I was pg with dc1. I was told I was mad. Still like it though. And, although I don't like Queenie, I nearly posted to defend it on the old lady thread the other day.
I also like Gaylord. No, that bit was a joke.

It's very American. I know lots of Nancy's over here although most are my age. I think it could be quite a cook name.
Gingerbear · 22/03/2008 13:48
Was on my shortlist, but I had DS so never got to use it.
ejt1764 · 22/03/2008 13:49
We considered Nansi (Welsh spelling) for DD ... I like it too - it was my Nana's name ...
MadameCh0let · 22/03/2008 13:50
What age are the American Nancys? ARe they about 60 something?
I love middle-aged chic. I'm SO bored with Victorian names. now. Bring on the Belindas and Loises and Sylvias.
MadameCh0let · 22/03/2008 13:51
Nansí means label-conscious in Spanish....
That's not a terribly bad thing though. Could be worse.
UnderRated · 22/03/2008 13:54
Nancys here are mid 30s+, I'd say. Lots of 50 somethings. No children with that name, although lots of Colins and Alans. My friend's daughter is Sylvia and it's lovely. I like Margot too.
I think it would be a cool name in the UK.
dizzychixies · 22/03/2008 13:57
underrated I really like sylvia/sylvie for this bump if pink in flavour but dh doesn't [humph]

And are you not tempted with Colin for a boy?
dizzychixies · 22/03/2008 14:02
