Name poll...posted in Oct '13 also

I wish I could make a real poll...my poll button above the subject line does not work. Boo.

We are having a girl! Heather will be the middle name as it is my late sister's first name, and our last name is frighteningly German. We have narrowed it down to 3 names:

Willa Heather

Padgett Heather

Audrey Heather

Thoughts? Thanks for helping!

  • I like Willa Heather. Padgett will be made fun of mercilessly.

    I'm not a fan of Padgett at all, but the other two are very cute.

    Please don't do either Willa or Padget... where did you get those names from, may I ask? Never heard of them. Is Willa supposed to be a form of Willow? I can see kids in school mercilessly picking on your LO with either of those names. Ick.

    Audrey is nice though.

    SMH. Willa is a very real, beautiful name with a long history. Please at least know what you are talking about before you say something ignorant.

    OP, I absolutely choose Willa. Beautiful!

    Did you read my response to the OP? I said I had never heard of the name Willa, and asked where she got it from. There's nothing ignorant about that. It's NMS regardless, and that's my opinion, which I have every right to stating.

    And as a preemptive (because no one on The Bump seems to know what the word ignorant means) it doesn't mean "stupid" it means "Lacking knowledge, information, or awareness about something in particular".

    You're right, that is the meaning of ignorant. I know it doesn't mean "stupid". I asked the OP where she got the name Willa from, because I was genuinely curious. The closest name I have ever heard of or seen in any relation to Willa, is the name Willow.

    That's rude.

    It's actually a really old name, it was popular from 1880-1930's, and is the feminine form of Will. It means determined protector. I suppose it can be short for Wilhelmina...which I do not care for.  AND I really dislike Willow (thanks Willow Smith).

    Thank you for the origin/history of the name, OP. Now I can add it to names I'm familiar with Smile
    However I still wonder if the name is so uncommon that it would receive negative comments/feedback from other kids during school years.

  • I love Audrey, Willa would be my second choice and I wouldn't name my kid something as God awful as Padgett.  Ever.

    You can continue on for as long as you like. I'm well aware of what names I'm familiar with, and what names I've never heard of. There's nothing wrong with not liking a name, for whatever reason, and there's nothing wrong with never heard/seen a name. You're kind of making this into a big deal, all over someone else's choice of a child's name.

    Moving on...

  • I used to work with a woman named Willa.  Pretty name.  As long as your last name doesn't begin with the "uh" sound i think it's great - I've read ending on the same sound as the last name starts with can be difficult.  Audrey is also nice.

    How about the "ick" in your response? Not my style is not rude, ick is.

    OP, Willa is a beautiful name. I plan to use it if I can convince DH. She would be named after my FIL, William, who passed away last year.

  • Wow... this one is entertaining. My vote is for Willa. Willa Cather is definitely one of my favorite authors and my dog's name is Willa. (well, my parent's dog I guess). Audrey and Padgett are ok. Audrey is a little common for my taste, but still pretty. Padgett is unusual, but I definitely don't hate it/
