I love the name Pearl. DH would need some convincing as he thinks it sounds like a trashy name, I think more classic old lady name.

What do you think of Pearl? also any middle name suggestions?

I'm thinking:
Pearl Elisabeth
Pearl Nova
Pearl Elise
Pearl Summer
Pearl Carmella

Can't think of any others.

Love Pearl.

The only thing going against it (or for, depending if you like him) is Jack Osbourne named his daughter the same name.

It's definitely a classy 'old lady' name, not trashy at all.


Yeah that's true, I think his daughter is Pearl Clementine. I reckon it might be one of those names that ends up taking off in a few years.

Genuinely lovely. There is nothing trashy, at all, about Pearl. original.gif

It's a thumbs up from me too.  Simple elegance.  I would look at long multi-syllabic flourishes for the middle eg:


Pearl Amaryllis
Pearl Artemisia
Pearl Philomena
Pearl Catalina
Pearl Katarina

I LOVE Pearl. Unfortunately DP is not fond of it, he says it is a hipster name  sad.gif

Great for a middle name but not for a first name.

It's not trashy at all. It is a little elderly if anything. Vintage-sweet.

I do like Elizabeth but it seems like lots of options would work with Pearl, minus L names?

Pearl Simone
Pearl Catherine
Pearl Vivien
Pearl Caroline (I am loving -line names right now, Caroline/Jacqueline/Emmeline/Evangeline etc. and since Pearl is short you can really do any)
Pearl Veronica
Pearl Meredith

I love Pearl and think it will be very popular soon.
And vintage chic (as I also see my DD's name to be)

What about Pearl Elsbeth? As in a different form of Elizabeth?

I love Pearl, I prefer it in the middle name position but that's simply because I love OTT frilly girls names.

I also love Opal.

I adore Opal. I thought I was the only one.

NMS but it's nice, I would steer clear of another noun with it though - Pearl Summer sounds like a romance novel. I like Pearl Elisabeth, something equally vintage and classy goes nicely.

I really like Pearl. It is lovely.
You do have to be careful with middle names as the above PP has stated.
I'd pair it with an equally lovely traditional name. Like Alexandra or Charlotte.

I like Pearl, probably prefer it in the middle.

I do think that it's a name that will trend.

I also prefer Opal (again, in the middle).

I'm not mad on it, but in general I'm not gone on precious stone names ie Pearl, Opal, Coral, Beryl, Jade, Ruby.....

#24 B.ChickenBoss

It's nms.
It's not terrible but I can't say I like it that much.

Oh I love Pearl Nova!

"Hey, come here a second," my mum said as she replaced the book in my hands with a wooden spoon covered in what I prayed was red sauce.
