    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!

    If we'd had boys the list was: Godfrey, Seamus, Alexander, Michael, Felix, Peter, Ignatius & Sebastian.
