My favourite all time girls name ever. I had two DS.
Love it.

Yay smile Lovely name.

Personally think it sounds really common, can imagine Bianca from eastenders screaming it confused

Lovely, with great nn (Natasha) and so apt for Christmas.

It's quite pretty but a bit dated. It's a sort of Samantha, Nicola, Carla type name.

I have a Charlotte and a Samuel so wanting something to fit in well with these two.

everlong Sat 26-Oct-13 19:00:07

I wouldn't put it with Charlotte and Samuel if I'm honest.
Lucy
Anna
Harriet
Martha
Isabella
Beatrice
Florence

Are names I'd put with your other dc.

I like Natalie but prefer Natalia which doesnt go with your other names.

What about Amanda, Josephine, Lucy or Joanna.

I think it's nice - tiny bit "80s" but not massively so. Natasha for a nickname for Natalie though - what?! They are two different names, surely.

I'm not sure it goes 100% with your other DC's names but I don't know if that matters in the long run if you love the name.

My friend has two children with quite modern/colloquial names - her third is called something quite classical and my first thought was hmm .

She's 5 now and she is who she is and the combo of names is totally irrelevant.

One of my closest friends is Natalie so I'm a bit biased!

Yes, I like it.

It's my dd2' middle name so obvz I like it.

She is Eliza Natalie.

scarlettsmummy2 Sat 26-Oct-13 20:49:31

Don't like it! Dated and clumpy.

night1971 Sat 26-Oct-13 20:55:15

Dreadful. Especially when pronounced minus the "t" in the middle - Naaa - a-ley.

squoosh Sat 26-Oct-13 21:00:14

I like it and pronounce it beautifully!

Far nicer than other more fashionable names such as Florence or Beatrice.

Frontdoorstep Sat 26-Oct-13 21:00:27

I have a Natalie so I like it, in case you are interested in nn's , she is nine and never called anything other than Natalie.

CremeEggThief Sat 26-Oct-13 23:07:04

I like it, but I LOVE Natalia.

Littlecherublegs Sat 26-Oct-13 23:21:05

I like it though dislike Nat which she would probably get called.
I like Natalia and Natasha too but would personally avoid for the same reason.

Clawdy Sat 26-Oct-13 23:40:56

Nice but very dated.

Tikkamasala Sun 27-Oct-13 01:23:13

I agree its a bit dated but I do really like it!

reelingintheyears Sun 27-Oct-13 01:29:05

Nathalie?

WooWooCaChoo Sun 27-Oct-13 22:02:07

This is the first time I've ever seen my name on here, I feel proud grin

Go on OP, choose it! It's not that dated is it?

I really didn't think it was dated! Not used often but still 'in there'.

I'm still 98% sure I will use it though grin

It's very beautiful, op! Natalie Wood springs first to my mind.
