What do you think of this girl's name?

I've been thinking a lot about the name Delia lately. And, I was looking to hear your opinions on her.

First, a few questions:

What does the name Delia make you think of?

Do you like it, why or why not?

What do you think Delia's three sisters and three brother's would be named?

Do you prefer her in the first or middle name slot?

What would you pair with her?

Some info:

I have many (manymanymany) Bridget's in my family tree. One pioneering Bridget went almost exclusively by Delia. But, I also have an Aunt Bridget who went by Bridie. I'm not sure which nickname I'd embrace if I were to name my daughter Bridget.

I do think Delia is different enough to be used on her own, but I'm not sure that I'd want to have sisters name Delia and Bridie - too much Bridget! We'll see. I'm looking forward to hearing your opinions.

This is my namelist, which has gone under some recent renovations: http://www.babynames.com/namelist/9671979

If you want to post yours, I'll be glad to vote on it.

    What does the name Delia make you think of? England, Dairy, Cooking programes & my mums name Delilah which I really like.

    Do you like it, why or why not? Not really.. it's unique but kind of bland. It doesn't sound like a nickname at all, I'd never associate it with Bridget.

    What do you think Delia's three sisters and three brother's would be named? Delia would definitely be the 2nd child.

    1./ Vera

    2./Delia

    3./Marcus

    4./Suzanna

    5./Jonathan

    6./Gareth

    Do you prefer her in the first or middle name slot? First.. totally depends on the other name.

    What would you pair with her?

    I like Delia Scarlett or Rachel Delia.

    I think Delia is lovely, however I don't quite get the connection of Delia and Bridget....I prefer Delia as a nic for Cordelia.

    I like Delia in either first or middle name. It's a great name!

    Delia makes me think of a smart, pretty, classy, artsy woman or a sweet, innocence little girl.

    If i were to name Delia's bros and sisters:

    Simon

    Edmund

    Aruthur

    Audrey

    Beatrice

    Willa

    I see nothing wrong with Delia and Bridie as sisters, honestly. Though I think Bridget and Cordelia nn Bridie and Delia would be better.

    um...some middle name ideas:

    Delia Jessamine

    Delia Ivy

    Delia Carys

    Delia Maureen

    Delia Brynn

    I love the name Delia! I have always liked it.

    What does it make me think of? Well... I guess it reminds me of Amelia Ba Delia (or however you spell it), the book. but not really... I like it!

    Do I like it? Love it! It is unique, classy, and pretty.

    3 sisters and brothers? I really have no idea. I think Delia would go well with pretty much any sibling name!

    I prefer it as a first name!

    Middle name:

    Delia Rose

    Delia Taylor

    Delia Paige

    Delia Monet

    Delia Capri

    Delia Makes Me think of a flower

    I like the name because its unusual

    Her 3 brothers would be called Xander, Alex, Riley

    Her 3 Sisters are Lily, Lola, Faith

    It has to be a first name

    Delia Freya

  • I too prefer Delilah with an h as well. It is gorgeous and lovely. I much prefer it to Bridget, which seems harsh.

    Her three sisters would be Alice, Hazel, and Mathilda.

    Her three brothers would be Aubrey, Russell, and Patrick.

    Delilah Astrid
