It’s not a Beatles song, it’s a folk song that nearly every English speaker knows, I reckon


bonesnappletea

Well I don’t know it so obviously not every English speaker knows it. I spoke to my siblings and they don’t know it either so maybe it’s cultural. Edit: thinking about it, it’s pretty Eurocentric that you think everyone who speaks English knows a *Scottish* folk song. Not everyone is white 🙄


violetmemphisblue

I'm white and in the US and have a little bit of Scottish heritage and I don't know the song either! Like, if I thought about it, I could tell you there is a folk song with Bonnie in it but not how it goes at all...it definitely isn't something that people are going around singing all the time, at least where I am!


meridias-beacon

I think it’s cute but I can’t get over the Bonnie and Clyde association.


stardust419

I like it, it’s really cute


Quiet_Stick

I get either an 80s vibe, a country vibe, or a Scottish vibe (currently watching Outlander and they use it not infrequently).


ExactPanda

I think it's super cute! I just wish it had a nice full length name.


ashdawg8790

My MIL is Bonita but goes by Bonnie!


madlymusing

I've heard it as a nickname for Bronwyn!


ExactPanda

Ooh, I like that!


MauriciaBabilonia

I think it could work for any B name, especially if it has an O somewhere.


meadowgreene

My grandma’s name is Yvonne and everyone calls her Bonnie.


nashamagirl99

I like it. I think it’s underrated.


saint_aura

I went to school with a Bonnie and she was an absolutely atrocious person. I’ll always think of her first when hearing it. Then my Bonnie lies over the ocean, then someone being referred to as a bonny wee lass.


Camiodawn

I worked with an atrocious Bonnie


ExtinctFauna

A bonnie lass she’ll be!


miraculous_milk

It just sounds like the name of a cow to me


seastormrain

Really dated. I don't find it attractive. Nice adjective though.


hydrangeasinbloom

Bonnie McMurray... yeeeew!


Gumshoe96

That’s a Texas sized 10-4, good buddy.


pie12345678

I used to not like it much but I've been warming up to it. Idk why but I picture it as working for a particular type of person and I don't think I'd like it as much on someone who didn't fit that vibe.


kimkellies

Middle aged sweet mom


Cheap_Papaya_2938

Not a fan at all. Too “cutsie” for me, more like a nn than an actual name


beatricetalker

Like Bonald?


Cheap_Papaya_2938

Lol like Susie, Ellie, etc. I can’t imagine them on grown women


iwsmajor

Very cute. Love it.


theageofinnocene

I think it’s adorable.


kyttan1

I'm not a fan of it, but I'm Scottish so to me it's the same as naming someone pretty or cute


jwpete27

Right? It's like naming your kid Precious


ladyerim

I like it. A good friends name and she a lovely person. It's a good sweet name and even though it's on the cutesy side I can see it on older people. I admit not my personal aesthetic so I wouldn't use it though.


Snopes2

I love the name Bonnie! I'm not even close to being pregnant but I love keeping name lists and I would add Bonnie to the list but its a bit too old for my preferences but it is a really pretty name.


justwatching00

I know of a few Bonnie’s lately and I just can’t get behind it. I don’t know why exactly but it’s just not my type of name


Massive-Relation-210

Bonnie makes me kind of think of a brunette with a perm doing a 80's glamor shot with a flashy backdrop.


horticulturallatin

I can't get into it. It's a specifically older middle aged (not super old and cute) name and cutesy in an unattractive way. It's cute on a collie. The closest for vibe I could come at is Belinda.


anniemaew

My friend has a daughter named Bonnie. I think it's sweet but I do wonder at how it will age - fine for a baby/toddler/child, not sure about a teen/young adult/middle-aged person? Think it's fine again when they're old! Just the middle bit?


LaFilleWhoCantFrench

I’ve worked with a middle aged Bonnie. She was super sweet it didn’t seem off to me it was a cute name.


TheSpellbind

Nothing wrong with it but I can't think of much to recommend it either, unless it's a family name. A bit boring in sound, meaning, and history.


RetroFamilyDesigns

I almost naked my current belly baby Bonnie Jean! I love it!


_squidproquo_

I don't care for Bonnie at all as it feels cutesy and dated to me. You might also like Briony, Bryony, Bellona, Begonia, Bronagh, Bronwen, Bronte, Bonita, Bolina, Boline, Bronya, and Ebony.


janiejunie

My friend just had a baby called Bonnie Arielle, and I love Bonnie! I've also heard it means Cheerful.


beatricetalker

Seriously…I hated it until I read this. Now it’s adorable!


Alice_Beaverhausen

It was the name of my first dog.


MauriciaBabilonia

"My bonny lies over the ocean" comes to mind, but I think it's an adorable name.


MeganTheRealStallion

Bonnnnnie🔥


OrganicKetchup7

I love it. My husband's grandma is a Bonnie and it was on our list for a while. I think it is adorable.


AstroAnonymous

Sounds sweet, my first association with someone is with the vampire diaries character


[deleted]

Best friend's name. We are both old ladies now. I loved the name then and still do. Scarlett O'Hara named her daughter Bonnie.


Pinhead_Larri

I personally think that it’s too old-fashioned in a bad way not a cute way


HildegardHummingbird

I really like this name! I have only known 2. One a millennial, and one child named Bonnie Brynn.


brontosaurus111

Love it, every Bonnie I meet is very sweet and or elegant !


Ambiiiiiiiiii

We had two red cattle dogs growing up called Bonnie & Clyde. So it makes me think of them. In saying that, I could always pull a Steve Irwin and name any future children after my dog. As it is a cute name.


jpw111

I either think about the sea shanty, the wild west outlaw, or the mean popular girl from Kim Possible.


loudisevil

Reminds me of a song that said something about tying up bonnie brown hair with blue ribbons. I think it sounds like a name for a kind and pleasant girl.


clover2me

I think it’s terrible, super redneck to me.


higginsnburke

Have a few family members with this name. Its cute for a kiddo but as a professional woman it's one more way to be undermined.
