Baby Names

Thoughts on Mallory

We just found out we are Team Pink.

Our top name is Mallory Elizabeth and our last name is common, has two syllables and starts with a W. Elizabeth is after DH's twin sister.

Thoughts? Stereotypes? Is Mallory too 80's/early 90's ish?

ETA: We are not bothered by the unlucky meaning of Mallory.

Re: Thoughts on Mallory

  • Elizabeth is a lovely MN, but I'm not really a fan of Mallory. Yes, it is pretty dated.

    TTC #1 since 06.2011 Me-24 DH-24

  • Mallory really isn't awful. I like it much more than the contemporary Ellery or Everly but much less than the classic Margaret or Millicent. It's just somewhere in the middle for me right beside Melanie and Mindy.

    Mallory feels dated, reminds me of a duck (mallard), and  I can't imagine it on a serious adult. Don't let that sway you though because like I said it is not an awful name or anything, it just is sort of "eh" to me.

    What is it that you like about Mallory? Maybe we could offer some other options?

    love Love love Elizabeth though. Perhaps Eliza as a first name in honor?  

  • I actually think it's nice. Not to date for me. I've only known 1 Mallory ever, so I like it because it's not super popular.

  • I like the sound of it, but I am personally bothered by the meaning.

    If the meaning doesn't bother you-- I would use it. 

    I actually think it sounds fresh rather than dated.  It was popular in the 80s, but it was no Jennifer, Jessica or Heather.

  • I don't think it's dated and I actually really like it. TBH I probably wouldn't actually use the name because of the meaning but I'd love to hear of a baby Mallory!

    LOL. Kind of obscure, but it's funny. 

    I really don't mind Mallory. "Dated" isn't really a bad thing to me. I appreciate a lot of "dated" names. I like quite a few. If dated is the worst thing about it, who cares!  Go with it!

  • I really, really like it- it's on our list. Our OB's name is Dr. Mallory, actually. haha!

    I don't think it's dated, and one of the things I like about it is that it's not super common, but it isn't a weird or made up name either.

  • I like it. My first thought is Mallory from the Babysitter's Club. :)

    A friend on another board I'm on named her little girl Mallory and I think it's cute.

  • I like it.  I kind of think it is refreshing.  I also think of the Babysitters' Club! 

  • Sorry, to me it is a little dated but if you really like it, then go for it.  I despise the nn Mal though.

    This was my feeling, too. I like that its a real name but not extremely common.

    We are really looking for an M name and Mallory is the only one DH is truly excited about. He has shot down everything else.

    The unlucky meaning does not bother us because for us, she has made us feel very blessed/lucky. We TTC for two years and were waiting for our last natural cycle to end before starting IVF. That last natural cycle was a BFP and here we are.

    Thanks for all the comments. I really appreciate the honest thoughts and opinions.

  • I think it's cute! I think of Baby Sitter's Club too. And really, every name gets dated at one point, and then seem to come back around. So it doesn't matter so much if it could be dated right now.

  • I think it's dated and terribly ugly. I see absolutely nothing redeeming about it.

  • I love it!  This is going to date me but it reminds me of Mallory on Family Ties.

  • Lol, that is one of my top 5 for our girl name but DH is super set on it being a boy he won't discuss girl names yet. Guess well find out at our a/s in two weeks!!

  • I don't even know what the unlucky meaning is, but I really like Mallory Elizabeth. It's actually on my list.

    Edit... okay just looked it up, the meaning is actually "unlucky". I feel like a boob.

  • I love the name Mallory, it's my nieces' name. She is spunky and a bit wild but also loving and sweet. It fits her to a T.

  • I like Mallory. I know a couple of little girls with this name, and it never seemed dated to me. I think it will age fine, and it sounds nice with Elizabeth.

  • My dh loves this name I promised him if we ever have another it could be our girl name! This however is baby number five so I'm not too sure I can wrap my head around another. Mallory has grown on me I really didn't like it to begin with.
