I came across Thimble the other day and I am obsessed with it. [name_f]Do[/name_f] you love it or is it just too far out? I’d love to know your thoughts.
i think it’s so cute! i would probably only use it in the middle though, but that’s just my style!
Too far out for me. It doesn’t work as a name.
I think it is absolutely adorable but I don’t think it is very wearable as a first name. Word names are very on trend but this one feels more like [name_f]Bunny[/name_f] rather than [name_u]Ocean[/name_u], if that makes sense.
the first thing i thought of was the borrowers. it’s possible as a name if you’re going for a whimsical vibe, but i wouldn’t personally use it.
I don’t think it works as a legal name. Cute as a nickname though. [name_u]Or[/name_u] for a pet.
I wouldn’t do it. I don’t think it works as a name in real life or on a real person. [name_f]My[/name_f] test is to ask myself if I would like the name for myself and, no, I really wouldn’t.
I’m going to echo others here and say that Thimble is far too out there for my tastes. Then again, people use words for names all the time that I don’t think are usable, so it is really up to you and your feelings on the matter. However, Thimble would have a TON of teasing potential as it is a sewing implement.
Thimble is so sweeet! It reminds me of [name_m]Peter[/name_m] [name_m]Pan[/name_m], and I just love that association so much. I do, however, agree with other posters that it may be better suited for a strictly GP list. I also think it could make a cute pet name!
I think it could work as a very brave middle choice, as well! word names are on trend right now, and it reminds me of a name like [name_f]Frances[/name_f] [name_u]Bean[/name_u] [name_m]Cobain[/name_m].
Cute! For me it works best as a middle, or even a character/pet name, but I’m a big believer in using “guilty pleasure” names. I think if I met someone named Thimble, I would be surprised, but overall would think it was sweet. In my opinion, middle names are basically fair game, though, so I still think that would be your best bet if you wanted to use it.
I’m a big fan of word names, but like others have said thimble is almost too cutesy I’d put it in the baby/dimple/sugar category and to be honest the sound doesn’t appeal to me too much as a name…
However I think it would make an absolutely darling nickname especially for a teeny thimble sized baby!
It’s sooooo cute! (Maybe a bit too cute for a first name.)
Awe Sounds like a delightful little faerie name! I think this is very sweet. Would definitely work well on a book character, but I think a real girl could wear it too! I picture her as either very quaint or very excited, just upon first glance at the name.
To me it sounds like it would fit a child upto a toddler age not above, and it mostly reminds me of sewing needles
[name_f]Robyn[/name_f] / [name_u]Robin[/name_u]
It’s a nope from me.
Like others said, cute as a nickname but doesn’t really work as a legal name
[name_m]Tom[/name_m] Thumb’s bff?
Adorable sound, but too far out there for me. How about [name_u]Thistle[/name_u]? I find nature word names significantly safer than other noun names because there’s such a long history of using plants as given names.
It’s cute for a character or pet, I don’t think it works for a real person.
While cute, it sounds like a book character. Maybe as a middle name, but as a first name I would label it firmly a GP
