I guess I'll be the voice of dissent and say that I actually quite like it. I know a girl called September and it works really well on her, so I don't see why February can't work.
This thread is awesome! Not only is February one of my guilty pleasure names, but my name is Julia!
If I were you, I'd go with Julia February. You can call her Julie or Julia, and February would be a fun, original, meaningful middle name that she'd feel proud to have. If people can name their kids all kinds of obscure word-names, why can't February work?
It's all just a matter of people getting used to it. We all know people whose names we heard for the first time and cringed, and then once the person grew on us the name became lovely/normal.
I wouldn't go with February. I'm not a huge fan of month names, but this is one that would likely be laughed/scoffed at. I think it would be very hard on a child. Would you like your name to be February? Try going to Starbucks and ordering a coffee under the name and I think you'll change your mind.
Julie is a much better choice. Maybe something longer like Juliana or Julia.
I ditto the PP: If January Jones can pull off her name, why not February??
I know a September and an August as well! Once you get used to it, the name fits and sounds quite pretty.
Someone will always dislike the name you pick. :(
But Julie is a pretty name too. And I like the suggestion of February Juliet VERY much! That sounds so pretty! If your daughter grows to not be fond of her first name, she can easily go by Julie or Juliet if she wants.
Don't beat yourself up about it, it's obvious your not trolling!! Also so what you may have a few mistakes in your post??? Jeez!
I can totally see the attraction in February; she's unusual, and has a great natural feel. I can also understand why you'd wonder why April, May and June work but February doesn't especially when January is also being used a lot as well. However unlike April, May, June and January the issue with February is that she's an awkward month. The pronunciation of February makes her awkward with 'Feb-u-airy' and 'Feb-ru-ary' issue and I also find her spelling awkward. Unlike other more commonly used month names she's not short and sweet like April nor does she have a lovely nickname like January 'Janey'.
She's your baby you obviously have an attachment to February use it! But as a middle name!
I dislike 'Julie' she's kind of bland and rhymes with February.
What about Juliet February? Juliet February is stunning! Also Julia February?
I would use Juliet February!!! Now get a jiggle on and go get her registered.
Good luck xxx
