Thread: Judith?

  1. #26
    I like Judith. A lot of old fashioned names are coming back into style, so I think a little Judith would fit right in.

    I like Judith, but would not use Judy. Jude is a much better nickname. I know Jude is becoming popular with boys, but I think it works for both genders x

    Here's a name I don't hear very much anymore. Judith took a while to grow on me but I like it well enough. It's the name of a strong woman and Blblical heroine and along with sisters Edith, Lilith and Meredith, it has a retro chic vibe. I knew a Judith nn Judy growing up (she was born in the fifties) and she was a bouncy redhead with freckles so it's one of those "happy" sounding names. The name has so many wonderful musical and cinematic connections (Judy Collins, Judy Garland, Judith Durham, Judith Anderson, Dame Judi Dench).

    I'd love to meet a little Judith! If it wasn't a family name, I'd consider it myself.

    I personally dislike -th ending cause they are a bit lispy for me, but I see the charm of Judith. And I love Judy Garland, so what a great namesake to have! I do think that Jude feels more 2014, though it does read "Beatles fan" for me.

    A lot of -th ending names have a very ethereal vibe, but Judith feels more down to earth & fresh faced. I guess it's more like Ruth or Edith, not very much like Gweneth or Hyacinth.
