I read that a reality star in the UK named her daughter [name_f]Sunday[/name_f] and [name_f]Nicole[/name_f] Kidman and [name_m]Keith[/name_m] [name_u]Urban[/name_u] chose it for their daughter.

I kind of love it! What are your thoughts on the name? Good or bad!


I like it - [name_f]Sunday[/name_f] sounds charming and sweet. I wouldn’t use it as a first name though as it’s such a mundane word we use all the time. I also automatically think of [name_f]Wednesday[/name_f] from the Addams Family even though it’s not the same of course. [name_f]Sunday[/name_f] could be a good choice if you were religious as it holds a lot of meaning and symbolism in the [name_m]Christian[/name_m] faith.

I think it’s pretty cool. I wouldn’t use it personally just because it isn’t my style but I would be delighted to meet a little girl named [name_f]Sunday[/name_f]. I think it’s a really interesting (in a good way) choice because everyone would know how to pronounce it easily but she would probably the only [name_f]Sunday[/name_f] in her social circle.

I don’t like day of the week names on humans. I don’t see the appeal and I just don’t think any of the days of the week (I know a lot of name nerds love [name_f]Tuesday[/name_f] and [name_f]Wednesday[/name_f]) sound very pleasing or like human names. I can imagine the name on a cat.

Also, day names are said differently depending on where you’re from, like my grandparents would say “sundee” while my accent puts a lot of emphasis on the word ‘day’ - that kind of discrepancy can happen with any name, but it seems more pronounced when it’s a word we all say very, very frequently.

Maybe I overthink it, but I just don’t like word names.

Bumping this for some more opinions!

I’m not a fan of super common words as names and especially [name_f]Sunday[/name_f] I view as a very religious choice and I’m also not big on bestowing heavily religious names on children.

I think it’s sweet, but I’m open to using a lot more word names than I see most people are. I just think if there’s no glaringly obvious very negative associations it’s not that extreme. [name_u]River[/name_u], [name_f]Rose[/name_f], [name_f]April[/name_f], [name_u]August[/name_u], [name_u]June[/name_u], [name_f]Coral[/name_f]…why not [name_f]Sunday[/name_f]? Nickname could even be [name_u]Sunny[/name_u]. I tend to put word names in middle and nickname spots because I know they’ll seem weird to lots of people.

Very pretty! It’s very sweet and charming I think!

The only weekday name I like! The others don’t work for me - too specifically wordy - but [name_f]Sunday[/name_f] feels different somehow… perhaps because it is made up of two recognisable words so feels like it has a meaning beyond the literal day of the week one.

I think it’s sweet and funky, but not unwearable for an adult as well. It kind of reminds me of the Cornish name Loveday, which I found twee and a bit [name_m]OTT[/name_m] at first, but am coming around to now.

I like it! I [name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_u]Day[/name_u], Month, [name_f]Season[/name_f] Names like [name_f]Tuesday[/name_f], [name_f]Wednesday[/name_f], [name_f]Sunday[/name_f], [name_u]Winter[/name_u], [name_f]Autumn[/name_f], [name_u]June[/name_u], [name_u]August[/name_u], [name_f]May[/name_f], [name_u]January[/name_u]. I think [name_f]Sunday[/name_f] sounds really sweet. I don’t get a religious vibe from [name_f]Sunday[/name_f] as pp said. I love the imagery I get from [name_f]Sunday[/name_f], to me it reminds my of lazy carefree mornings and sunny days.

I love [name_f]Sunday[/name_f]. I had [name_f]Sunday[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f] on my list for a loooong while when I was around 15/16. My favourite day name is [name_f]Wednesday[/name_f] though, I love [name_f]Wednesday[/name_f] Addams.

I don’t see the appeal of [name_f]Sunday[/name_f]. To me it’s just a day of the week. [name_f]Non[/name_f]-traditional word names aren’t my style in general.

I think it’s a charming name. My favorite -day name is [name_f]Holiday[/name_f].

I actually think it’s pretty cute. It’s the only day of the week names I’d use! I don’t know if I have the guts for it, but I think it’s adorable :slight_smile:

I like the idea of [name_f]Sunday[/name_f], but all I hear is sundae, and I just can’t get past the ice cream association. If I heard someone say “I have to go pick [name_f]Sunday[/name_f] up from day care!”, I would be thinking they meant their dog, [name_f]Sundae[/name_f]

I think it’s fine. I wouldn’t use it personally, but it’s cute.

While I like the name on a purely aesthetic level, it has very strong religious connotations to me. I would assume a girl named [name_f]Sunday[/name_f] had [name_m]Christian[/name_m] parents. (This might be just because I’m a Jew and live in a very religiously mixed area, though.)

[name_f]Sunday[/name_f] is beautiful but you have to be careful with middle names as it can sound like a phrase with some. [name_f]Sunday[/name_f] [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Jane[/name_f] , [name_f]Sunday[/name_f] [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] or [name_f]Sunday[/name_f] [name_f]Geneva[/name_f] [name_u]Quinn[/name_u] would be adorable

I think [name_f]Sunday[/name_f] is a beautiful name! I love the nn [name_u]Sunny[/name_u] with it. It makes me imagine a super sweet and kind little girl. I’d love to meet a [name_f]Sunday[/name_f].

(I grew up in a sort of religious family, but I’ve never seen the name as religious. I understand why some people would, but it didn’t even cross my mind.)

I like [name_f]Sunday[/name_f]! It’s cheerful and unexpected :smiley:
