I love this name Bernadette but I think it's old fashioned but it will definitely be my first daughter's middle name.

I like this name and Saint Bernadette is one of my favorite saints. I will very likely use this for a middle name.

For some reason the name Bernadette screams "lady with a mustache" to me. It sounds very harsh and masculine to me.

My uncle named his daughter Bernadette and she's 31 years-old now. I love the name, it totally fits my cousin. When I say she's my cousin, 'Bernadette', people ALWAYS remember her name. It's a unique and bold name and sure to be remembered and recognized.

My name's Bernadette (known as Berni by most), I quite like my name, I've never met another Bernadette (I live in London, England). I think Berni(e) is a pretty nickname for the name.

I love this name, it's strong yet totally delicate and womanly! One of my favourite names. ;)

Along with Berni(e), I have also heard that the nickname Bunny can be used for Bernadette.

This name is very classy and strong, but feminine. I'm not sure I like the sound of it that much, but I like it IN THEORY. I want to name my first daughter Bernadette, honoring my dad, Bernard.

Maybe if I were French. It wouldn't go over where I live.

I like the story of Saint Bernadette, so this would be a nice name.
-- StarMoon  12/29/2012
I absolutely love this name. It's classy, graceful and feminine but not overly frilly - it reminds me a lot of 'Barbara' that way. Definitely on my shortlist. Besides, I love the story of St Bernadette.

One of my best friend is named Bernadette, going by Bernie.
I think it's a lovely name; not really my style, but beautiful.
I love it's meaning: "brave as a bear".

There is a really beautiful song about Saint Bernadette called "Song of Bernadette" written by Leonard Cohen and sung by Jennifer Warnes. My mother used to play her album when I was little and I always thought Bernadette was a beautiful name, noble and feminine and comfortable. I also have a grandfather whose middle name was Bernard so if I have a daughter in the future, I may choose it for a first name. I didn't think it sounded old-fashioned, but anyway many old names are new again (like Atticus for boys etc.)
