Would this be absolutely ridiculous as a middle name?

Marigold.

Also I'm not pregnant but plan on trying soonish. blush I just think it's sweet.

But also possibly unbearably twee. hmm

If you think you could live with people thinking you'd named her after a rubber glove...

BitOutOfPractice Thu 26-Jun-14 16:54:36

Yes, that's the first thing I thought of too

foolishpeach Thu 26-Jun-14 16:56:15

I like it!

Nereida Thu 26-Jun-14 16:59:02

I agree it's quite sweet -I'd like to see it used!

CheerfulYank Thu 26-Jun-14 17:05:02

We don't have Marigold gloves in America, or if we do they're not a household name smile

I loved the book "Magic for Marigold" when I was little, did anyone read that?

Also I seem to really like the more unusual flower names...I really wanted Primrose for DD's middle but was talked out of it. sad

Depends on the first name you choose

CheerfulYank Thu 26-Jun-14 17:15:41

Across I like Phoebe. smile

Wishfulmakeupping Thu 26-Jun-14 17:17:05

Primrose is lovely

squoosh Thu 26-Jun-14 17:18:10

As they're so rarely used I think anything goes as far as middle names are concerned.

CheerfulYank Thu 26-Jun-14 17:32:55

It is Wishful! But I got talked into Rose instead so now I can't use Primrose really.

She's Margaret. Margaret Primrose would have benb gorgeous IMO.

NadiaWadia Thu 26-Jun-14 22:09:18

Pretty and unusual, so why not?

Rhubarbgarden Thu 26-Jun-14 23:21:27

I adore Marigold. If ds had been a girl it would have been his middle name.

BreeVDKamp Fri 27-Jun-14 14:22:57

Love it!

FinDeSemaine Fri 27-Jun-14 14:24:20

Phoebe Marigold is lovely. Primrose is also gorgeous. I wanted Clover for DD but DH hated it.

SomeSunnySunday Fri 27-Jun-14 15:52:20

Lovely!

I'm a huge fan of Clover, Fin. There is no way that my DH would ever even let it on to a list, though.

CheerfulYank Fri 27-Jun-14 16:55:24

I love Clover too Fin. smile I have a friend who has a beautiful little Clover.

lettertoherms Fri 27-Jun-14 16:57:12

It's lovely!

AuntieStella Fri 27-Jun-14 17:17:09

It's a very Jilly name (in The Man Who Made Husbands Jealous) and "let's cal, her Marigold and perhaps she will"

If you want a jolly hockey sticks vibe, it'll be splendid.

Rhubarbgarden Fri 27-Jun-14 18:46:57

I wanted Clover too, but it doesn't work with our surname. Bah.

CheerfulYank Sat 28-Jun-14 03:32:49

I'm American AuntieStella so I only have a vague idea of the jolly hockey sticks vibe but I think I like it! grin

Rhubarb not many things work with our surname actually. It's the same as a "journalist" who married a Frenchman and thinks she's gorgeous...

My friend's first name is Marigold (named after the flower, not the rubber gloves), and she has gotten through life OK, so I'm sure the same would apply with it in the MN spot.

I love Marigold and Clover

I love it. It was a nn of mine at one point

Marcipex Sat 28-Jun-14 11:47:22

I love Marigold, really beautiful.

Sadly in the UK it's a well known brand name.
