Cannot decide between Desiree and Jezabel

BTW this was today in the supermarket, a lady I know from dd's old nursery - quite boho and alternative.

She asked if I preferred Jezabel or Desiree and in which order.
I said they sounded a bit much together and could she not just call her expected dd
Jeziree
or Dezabel

She was dead chuffed and said she liked
Dezabel

Am praying that child is a boy I guess

Dear god no I hope she was joking!!

Both names are pretty awful, and the amalgamation is even worse!

Roffle.

If there's anything to nominitive determinism he will be a very loud child. Buy her earplugs as a birth present.

Poor kid -they get to be named after a hussy or a potato, what a choice!

I think the amalgation is better than Jezabel, at least it doesn't have the same connotations!

'Troy' reminds me - first class joke on HIGNFY t'other night.

Do people seriously think Jezebel is an option? No matter how 'boho and alternative' , thats plain cruel.

I actually met a Toddler called Jezabel last year - or at least it was pronounced Jezabel, could have been Jessie-Belle or somesuch I suppose. Maybe there's a trend there?

I had a doll called Jezebel when I was little. My uncle suggested her name as a joke and I, at 2 thought it was a lovely name. Didn't find out the meaning till I was in my teens!
