Violet_Rose Says:


I think it's a beautiful white cat or white horse name. Maaaaybe I could see it as an interesting middle name. I prefer Snow Blossom over Snowdrop personally.

Kew Says:


In what version of Grimm's Fairytales was Snow White called Snowdrop?
In the original German, she was Sneewittchen / Schneeweißchen (Little Snow-White). The German for a snowdrop is Schneeglöckchen. So (as much as I love the name Snowdrop) using Snow White for the character in English is truer to the original story than using Snowdrop would have been.

FractalShadow Says:


There's something really sweet and charming about this name. It would be beautiful especially as a middle name.

Miri Says:


I think it's more of a cat's name.

indiefendi2 Says:


I'd rather be named Baby's Breath

ladimon Says:


For a cat, maybe?

sometimeschessie Says:


But does it pass the resume test? And does it seem like a pet's name? Beautiful, but maybe only as a middle name until it gains more currency.

snowsbeloved Says:


Although I love it, and I will be using this as a nickname for our babies, I don't think it ages very well at all.

Impwood Says:


I love snowdrops. But while this would make a nice middle name, a person needs a more grown-up name to go by.

mabespark Says:


That's sweet. It's actually growing on me - it is slowing making its way to my GP list. :)

OliviaSarah Says:


I actually know a girl with this name. I met her once a few years ago (we were 12-ish) and everyone called her Snowie. It definitely stuck with me.

raevynstar Says:


No I'm not, this is a lovely name (a GP). ;)

Are you kidding?

Fourthseason Says:


Its not "JUST" a variation of snow, it is a flower, and it is literary, for which is was used in the Grimm's Tales as a name for Snow white before Walt Disney changed Snowdrop's name to Snow White to be more adaptable to American's ears because they weren't acclimated with floral names being used on people. Plus, In the Edwardian and Victorian and on up its was given to 60 girls or more. So it does have legitimate status of being used as a real name.

mabespark Says:


Pretty, light, and dainty, but I don't think I would use it on a baby.
