    Darcy?

    Wanting to get some opinions on the name Darcy. I realized the other day that I like it quite a lot, but I'm not sure what most people think of it? How would it sound with siblings Lila and Nolan?

    I LOVE Darcy on a boy because of Mr Darcy, but it feels too masculine for a girl. Darcey seems more feminine to me. It's fine with Lila and Nolan.

    With the name Darcy, I can't help but be reminded of Mr. Darcy in Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" (Colin Firth, anyone? ). It's spunky and boyish and one of the few gender neutral names I don't mind. It may be a bit too unisex next to the dainty Lila but it's not as jarring as other names would be (eg. Madison). It does match well with Nolan. I think it could work if you love it.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    See I associate it with a little British girl I met so for me it seems very playful and feminine, as well as a character from a movie that was a female (can't remember the movie-it was from my childhood).

    I like it! It does remind me of Mr. Darcy, but for me personally, the name is 100% girl. I've also met a female Darcy and read a few books with female Darcy characters, so I can't really imagine the name on a boy at all. I think it works well with your other names.
