    Cressida has been on my list for awhile now. I love seeing it get the appreciation it deserves, but I hope it doesn't get too popular!

    I don't see this name becoming popular in the USA. For one thing there's the car, which I had never heard of. They stopped making them 20 years ago according to Wikipedia and as we didn't own one I had no memory of it.

    I also think this name is too out there for a lot of people especially non-name nerds (in USA). I don't think it has mainstream appeal, even with Harry's girlfriend.

    As for the name itself, Cressida is a name that I find ok, but don't particularly love or wish to use. I think it is easily pronounceable, which is a plus. I think it's usable and if you love it, go for it!

    Good luck!

    reminds me of credenza - a cupboard or cabinet :/

    i knew a Creasie in high school but dont know if that stood for anything - it rhymed with Greasy ( double :/ :/ )
    i do not ignore the Rich Text toolbar provided me. i bold, italicize, enlarge, underline and CAPITALIZE for emphasis, individuality, and to capture attention among the endless Arial Standard Size Font that everyone else uses.
    i am not screaming nor will i cosset you. i do this to highlight the most important aspect of my thoughts so they are not lost again in the never ending sea of tiny, black, tempered letters that make up forums everywhere.
    ~*~ i encourage you to do the same ~*~
