Naming my daughter :)

Thinking of naming my daughter Candy or Candi!!!!!!!!!

My husband says its trashy. He thinks her name ought to be Bunny or Muffy or some rich white shit. Dont wanna give her false hope of a nice life.

by Anonymousreply 153Last Sunday at 1:12 PM

I think you should name her after the patron saint of dead wives Shan’nana, spelling and pronunciation interchangeable at will.

by Anonymousreply 110/12/2020

I can understand not wanting to build her hopes up, but you also don't want to sentence her to a life of depravity and destitution in a trailer park right out of the gate, either. Stay away from any name that does, or could potentially, end in an i, and you'll be fine.

Candi Cayyne as in Christmas Candy Canes

I used to work with a fat, lisping sow named Candy. She shared photos of her baby's birth with our 'team': it was a Caesarean delivery, and I dropped the photos when they were passed to me to admire.

by Anonymousreply 3810/12/2020

Please no alternate spelling or alternate pronunciations for regularly spelled names, we beg you. Also no punctuation within the name (hyphens, apostrophes, accent marks).

Please no lofty names if you have an ordinary child, this includes Nevaeh, Celestia, Cleopatra.

Think of these things: the jokes kids will make (i.e. Eileen), the inconvenience for others, the stereotypes/ethnicity/bias the name may engender, and the trash level.

It is difficult to imagine anything more dreadful than being a woman over 40 called "Candi" or "Candy". You may as well call her "Gidiget" and have done with it.

In fact, if you call her any of those things, she'll probably change it to Jane or Elizabeth by the time she's twenty-five.

And for what it's worth, Bunny and Muffy and all that "rich white shit" are passe. Even Marissa Melissa Jennifer are passe.

It's all about Olivia and Sophia and Emily and Claire and Charlotte and a few of the flower names like Violet and Rose and Lily.

Do keep up!

Winston Churchill had a little daughter named Marigold who died at three, devastating him and his wife, Clementine ("Clemmie" for short - try that one on).

But you can only carry off "Marigold" with a last name like "Churchill".

Give it a rethink.

R140 - Actually, I actually like "Marigold", too.

But Marigold Feinstein O'Shauhgnessy Dilorenzo Khan doesn't have quite the same ring to it as "Marigold Churchill". You really need a thoroughly WASP name to pull that off.

I was hoping William and Kate would venture out with something like Marigold when Charlotte was born, but I do understand why they didn't . . . Marigold Cambridge sounds divine, but Princess Marigold . . . not so much. It has to be just right with a name like that.

It's very English, along with names like "Tansy" and "Pansy" that once actually flew in England but don't any longer.
