Thread: Cadence & Brooke?

  1. #11


    Brooke was the name of my cat who recently died. Because of that it feels like a pet name and it's a little harsh sounding, but I do like it, just wouldn't be able to use it myself.

    Cadence is most definitely one of my guilty pleasures. I love the sound, it's very appealing to me and I like the musical association, but it does feel quite 'American' and I'm not sure I'd be brave enough to use it.

    Brooke was a favourite of mine a few years back. I still like it, not sure if I like it enough to use it though. Cadence isn't really my style at all.

    I like both names, I find Brooke to be quite a 'cool' name & I like the sound of Cadence, the OH is a fan too due to the musical connections.

    Theres a Cadence in American Pie, shes pretty and really girly. So thats what I could imagine a Cadence to be like. Only thing that puts me off is that people would shorten it to KAY which is 45+woman to be, dont like that at all!

    Cadence is way too American for me, I've never met or heard of anyone with the name but I see it a lot of the US site I use. It kind of reminds me of Candice, which is very chavvy and also the nickname Cadie sounds chavvy too so I'm not a fan, sorry.

    Brooke is OK, I find it a little dated. The only Brooke's I've ever known are over 16 years old and I can't imagine meeting a Brooke in any of my classes. It isn't a bad name though and I much prefer it Cadence.

    I think Brooke & Melody are amazing together!
