    Tell me what you think..

    Hi Everyone,

    Just wanting opinions on a few names please..

    Poet - Theres something about this name that I absolutely love but Im not sure if Im brave enough to use it??

    Monet - Love it, but after googling it found that people named this suffer from depression?? weird.

    Ribbon Mary - my mother passed away from breastcancer a long time ago and I thought the name Ribbon would be a beautiful gesture in her memory?? I also love the stevie wonder hit - ribbon in the sky-.

    I really like Monet (pronounced Monae), but I don't really like the others, sorry.

    Monet reminds me of the French artist, and is similar to names like Renee, Dante, etc.
    I love names that end with an 'ay' sound!

    Sorry hon, I'm not really into any of them. Ribbon and Poet remind me of something Gwyneth would call her kids. A bit too 'Hollywood' in my opinion.

    Monet could be nice though but it sounds a bit posh for a little baby however it could be a very sophisticated name for a young woman. Hmmm.

    In my own private paradise

    a girl i know at work named her DD Monet and it suits her perfectly!

    not so keen on the other two - i think you could kinda get Poet to grow on me eventually, but Ribbon - sorry, not keen at all

    Poet - I think it would depend on the surname?
    Monet - I think its cute How about Matisse?
    Ribbon - not too sure on it as a first name, but think it would be just gorgeous as a middle name!

    Ribbon is cute. If you wanted to go with the pink ribbon thing you could do something like "Ribbon Rose"
    Monet is nice.
    Poet doesn't do it for me.

    What is number 1's name?

    on the verge of greatness!

    hey, i think i really depends on what kind of family you are and the bub's personality. I'm thinking of the Phoneix family of actors - river, rain, joaquin etc. they all seem like strange names to me but once you get used to it and see the people (read interviews with them) their name really makes sense and suits them. iykwim.

    I really like the name Poet for a little girl. it's sort of romantic. I saw it in my baby book the other day actuallly... I don't mind Monet really either although i do think of tuna mornay when i read it! and the colour purple which was used alot by the artist.

    But i think ribbon would be a stretch. sorry, not real keen on that one.

    but as i said before, its really up to a child to grow into their name. some kids with some off-centre names, well you couldn't imagine them as being a jane or isabell. I'd love to hear what you decide on.

    good luck with it
