What do you think of the name Petal for a girl? I like it very much, but interested to hear how well received it would be by others. As she grows up and introduces herself I want her name to be well received.

Ok for a baby but not a child and definitely not for an adult.

What is your surname? Petal Jones. Petal Brown. Sounds daft to me. Just think of a proper name rather than being thick.

If you're worried about your child's name being well received, then don't call her Petal.

How will she feel putting the name Petal down on job applications later on in life? They will think it's a joke.

She won't need to work when she grows up, so that won't be a problem.

Isn't that a term of endearment from northerners? Not sure it would be well received in the playground

How about making Petal the second name and have a name with more gravitas as her first name - she may want to be a police officer, judge or Dr when she grows up. I suggest Susan or Joan - both good solid names

Are you naming the child for their sake or yours? Children aren't status symbols, to show off how original you are. Give them a name that won't condemn them to a life of having to spell it out to people every time they phone somewhere. Also, spell it the normal way. Not Jayne, Alyson, Alys, Cate etc. On the other hand, an unusual second name can be a talking point and if they really like it, your child can adopt it later in life.

Don't double barrel their first name, especially if the second bit is going to be "Mae", that's about the chavviest naming convention out there. Also with any name consider what they'll actually be called, any Susan will end up called Sue for example.

She probably wonít thank you for it as she grows up. Unusual names can be an unwanted burden.

Just watch that that the initials don't spell anything unfortunate.

Her full name would be Petal Enid Naomi Irene Sanders. Can't see any problem with those initials.

When naming a person I think it's wise to consider whether it's versatile enough to suit both a stripper and a lawyer.
