I guess it's okay, as long as Bardot rhymes with Margot (and not a combination of the words bar and dot)... I've never heard it before, but perhaps it's a family name? or some French word, my knowledge is limited I'm afraid... The sound is good and Vita is a great name! I'd rather use Vita Bardot or Margot Vita myself, but to each his own... It's better than Audio Science and Peaches Honeyblossom and such... This one is an actual name and not terms of endearment or a wannabe college class.... ^^
And milikate, Tapestry Noel is innovative! Kudos to her parents for being completely unique rather then misspell a perfectly good name... Tapestry would NOT be my first choice though, and Noel should remain a boys name, especially when you have pretty Noelle as a girl version already... If I were to do something similar, I'd probably choose Sunday Florian or something like that ^^ Not Tapestry at least...
I was wondering when this one would happen. If the Old Hollywood revival started with Ava and moved to surnames with Harlow, Bardot was only a matter of time. I suppose we'll see a few Garbos soon too (although I know Mila Jovovitch already had a mn of Gabo). It's a pity in some ways - I think without Brigitte, Bardot loses some of it's melody and doesn't make a great fn. They would have been better going for Vita Bardot or Brigitte Vita, but I don't suppose that's Hollywood enough for celebrity namers.
Other surnames that I think might come up before this one jumps the shark:
Monroe (actually, I'm surprised nobody's gone with Marilyn yet)
Sinatra (could they? would they?)
Let's just hope nobody uses "Andress"!
Innovative? Are you serious! I couldn't believe the name let alone that. Although I bet when the poor girl comes running home from school in tears from kids teasing her about her name her parents can reassure her and say 'don't worry honey, it's innovative'. I mean come on. Do these people even know what tapestry is? otherwise some one should tell them they have named their child after pieces of painted carpet.Quote:

Oh, but it's Bar-DOH. Like Pla-DOH? Despite the beautiful actress, I think this word 'Bardot' only works in relation to her first name. I also didn't know she was a racist, so minus minus. I wasn't even thinking of Velveeta when I thought it sounds like cheese. I think Vita could have potential with another name and not sound like cheese.
