Chardonnay & Whiskey
What do you think of the sibset Chardonnay (girl) & Whiskey (boy)?
Is this too "out-there" and inappropriate for children's names?
I'm just totally besotted with this sibset pair (NB I drink very rarely as I don't like alcohol and I'm into clean living - so it's rather bemusing/ amusing that I like this name pairing)...
Thoughts anyone?? ThanksUlysses | Christian & Godiva | Urania | Himalaya | Lionesse | Angelus

Yea it is way too inappropriate as human names. They would be fine as a pet's name. My dogs are named after alcoholic beverages.Expecting #1 December 2015

Oh, no; the poor children would be judged so badly! Which is kind of sad, as they have rather appealing sounds. After research, though, I found the real meanings of Chardonnay and Whiskey.
Chardonnay comes from Cardonnacum, which is Medieval Latin for "a place with thistles", coming form also Latin carduus, meaning thistle.
Whiskey comes from the Gaelic word(s) uisce/uisge, which mean "water".
So maybe you could use something with similar meanings?

How about Vodka instead of Whiskey? Vodka is the diminutive form of Voda = water. (or so I hear).... lol....
I agree with pp.’s I think as pet’s names they work for people I’d avoid them. Especially if you are into clean living - people will just think you’re a lush, a bartender or a distiller/brewer/etc.
Question: Do you like Chardonnay or Wiskey on it’s own? Or just this as a sibset? I feel like if you like each name on it’s own you might want to figure out what you like about it and look for a name with a similar feel..if you just like them as a sibset - I wouldn’t necessarily bother. Unless you were having twins how often does one name a whole sibset at once?...if my husbands has no vote, then....

Nope. They would be ridiculed for sure.
