    Would you use it/Do you think it's useable?

    Since I was sick from work yesterday I spent the day mostly on the couch watching Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers classics, I then had a dream where I had a little girl named Astaire so I'm now kind of in love with the idea of using Astaire as a girls name... what do you fellow nameberries think?
    Would you use it?
    Do you think it's useable?

    I would vote for Astrid which has a similar sound and a strong history.

    I'd prefer Estella or Adele after Fred's sister. Of course Astaire would only be unforgivable if you married name is Mrs Rodgers.
    Thrilled to be mother to @gnes Ei1ish Madeline and Fe1icity Bridget Be@trice

    If we'd had boys the list was: Godfrey, Seamus, Alexander, Michael, Felix, Peter, Ignatius & Sebastian.
