    Thanks for replies, I thought it was rather quirky and beautiful. But perhaps not a consensus view! I first heard it from Aunt Dimity in Nancy Atherton's books, well a friend told me in fact, I have not read them. Then I saw this post on Appellationmountain:

    It is also the name of a rather lovely Farrow and ball paint colour (!!) which is not necessarily a great thing

    The "dim" syllable makes this a no go for me.

    My main association is the fabric. It's like a light cotton.

    "Dim" makes it a no for me, but I like girl names with this cadence, like Verity, Amity, and Cecily, so I see why you like it.
    Girls:
    Nickname-able: Susanna, Johanna, Paloma, Lucille, Harriet, Beatrix, Rosemary, Juniper, Marigold, Annabeth, Gwendolen, Kathleen, Tabitha
    Short and to-the-point: Flora, Jane, Laura, Anne, Cecile, Susan, Kaia

    Boys:
    So much easier: Hugh/Hugo, Wilfred, Basil, Augustin, Edmund, Arlo, Timothy, Frederick
