Heres how I would rate them …
1.[name]Matilda[/name] - This name is sweet and spunky, but it still sounds a bit frumpy for me.
2.[name]Irene[/name] - This is a family name, so I am a little biased, but I’m definitely not in love with it.
- [name]Maude[/name] - Although it reminds me of mud and awful seventies wallpaper (I don’t know how!), it isn’t utterly terrible.
4.[name]Martha[/name] - This name reminds me of the less than pleasant [name]Martha[/name] [name]Stewart[/name], but I’d take it over [name]Bertha[/name] any day!
5.[name]Thelma[/name] - As awful as it sounds, I find [name]Thelma[/name] sort of sweet. That being said, it sounds like [name]Selma[/name] with a lithp, and all I can picture is an old granny knitting mustard coloured sweaters.
6.[name]Hilda[/name] - I really, really don’t like this name. All I can think of is an [name]Opera[/name] singing Viking. Although, I did know a teenager with this name.
7.[name]Norma[/name] - This name sounds like enormous. Enough said.
8.[name]Bertha[/name] - Large, obese woman milking a cow.
9.[name]Agnes[/name] - It’s just… bad. Very, very bad.
- [name]GERTRUDE[/name] - I have a strong, strong hatred for this name (I’m sorry if you’re named [name]Gertrude[/name] :P). Its really the [name]Trude[/name] part that gets me. Its like girdle mixed with rude… Egh!
