    Suzie?

    (So sorry, for the triple thread, don't know what happened. I was just trying to change the settings!)

    I just found out that Suzie means "lily", like my grandmother's name Lillian, which makes me super happy and excited!

    What's your impression on Suzie?
    And what about Thelma? Is it ready for a comeback or is it too clunky? Wearable or not?

    If parents decide to choose a name from a certain culture, they must respect that culture and the gender for which the name was historically given

    @Kittylitter: Thank you! I'm thinking about Suzie and Thelma as first names.

    @Marissabunz: Thank you. I'm not a fan of Susanna, sorry. It sounds like a modern version of Susan.

    Suzie is cute. It definitely fits in the current trends of vintage names and nickname names. Personally I prefer it as a nickname, but it's definitely usable and wearable as a full name.

    Edit: as for Thelma, I'm not a fan. It just doesnt have a nice sound to me

    Suzie is a sweet, spunky name! I personally prefer it as a nickname, but it's perfectly usable.

    As for Thelma, I do think it still sounds quite dated, à la Selma and Velma, so I'm not sure if it's quite ready to come back yet.

    I don't mind Suzie, but I think of it as a nickname only. I think if her legal name was just Suzie, she'd forever be explaining that it's not "short for something".

    I'm not a fan of Thelma at all, sorry.

    Suzie is definitely a nickname to me. I have a cousin Suzanne who has always been Suzie. It is a bit outdated but not so badly that it's unusable.

    As for Thelma, that is a little too outdated for my taste.

    I feel neutral about Suzie. I think it’s wearable. It feels very 70/80s personally to me. I feel it’s more of a name that has quietly sat around and doesn’t fit in the category of the old lady names but isn’t a classic either. If that makes sense.

    Edited to add that I feel neutral about Thelma. I think it’s perfectly wearable just not one I personally would use.

    Suzie to me is primarily a nickname for Susan or Suzanne. It strikes me as a being a bit of a "mom" name but I think it's wearable and has a sweet sound.

    Thelma is NMS. To me it sounds old-fashioned but not in a good way.
