Another "Dora" name !

Another Dora name (along with Isadora) which I love and is also on my shortlist is Pandora.
Could this work, or is it just too "out there"?

That really is trying too hard (I think). But if you love it....
MaryAnnSingleton · 15/06/2008 15:50
Pandora is sweet,as is Dora on it's own...
nkf · 15/06/2008 15:50
How about Theodora. As you seem to like the Dora theme.
MaryAnnSingleton · 15/06/2008 15:54
I'm being flippant now, but Wizadora ?
Dorabella - think she's in a Mozrt opera

Makes me think of Pandora's Box, and i think the assosiation with Dora the Explorer has spoilt the name Dora somewhat
Theodora is nice i think

Dorinda is a character in a fairytale if I remember correctly. Dorinda and Florizel.

The Theodoras I have read about have usually been shortened to Theo. Theadora is okay, but not really my style.
I also like the nn Pan

My sister Dorinda peed out of her windah.
Is the only time I've heard of a Dorinda!

Sorry not my taste at all there is something a bit seedy about Pandora - must be my memories of Adrian Moles fantasy's from my teenage years!
artichokes · 15/06/2008 20:01
Don't like it at all. Probably because of Adrian Mole. Much prefer Isadora but best of all is Theadora (which has two great abbreviations).
MerryMarigold · 15/06/2008 21:58
Yeah drusilla, adrian mole was my first thought too! tbh, i think it is a bit poncey, bu that's a v personal opinion and most people didn't like the girl's name i posted on here a while back.
dizzydixies · 15/06/2008 21:59
like it too
LuLuBai · 16/06/2008 10:03
It is probably going to remind all your friends of Adrian Mole, but doubt any of her friends will know of Adrian Mole when she is growing up.
The 'box' things may a bit tricky to live with but if you like the name go with it. My chosen name if this bump is another DD is also a biblical 'baddy' and it doesn't bother me.
Personally I like Isadora though. Pretty and original. (I know a few little Theadora's.)
artichokes · 16/06/2008 12:43
If you don't like Theodora then what about Dorathea?
Cecy · 16/06/2008 19:55
artichokes - Dorothea is on my shortlist actually but I'm still unsure

And you were telling me that my names were too try-hard!
Personally not for me, we do have different taste don't we.
jessiesmummy · 16/06/2008 23:35
I think Dorothea is a lovely name. Its from a book isn't it but cant remember which one. Charles Dickens I think??
Cecy · 16/06/2008 23:43
Ah now I know it's you "Brightfield" - what a pleasant surprise.
We're all very well on bn, a few of us post here too.
Cecy · 16/06/2008 23:46
Dorothea is from Middlemarch (Eliot)well I decided I liked after reading, I can't think of one from Dickens.
