I know people here generally don't like the term "chav" being used but this is not meant to cause offence and is for a bit of research for a friend who is writing a short fiction piece for a competition and is looking for names to base a couple of her characters on.

She's not really looking at the "Sharon" and "Tracy" type names but more the sort of names that are in vogue at the moment.

Any ideas gratefully received.

Oh this will not end well.

No ideas though, sorry

The most 'chavvy' parents I know called their daughters Olivia, Isabella, Ophelia, Mia and Phoebe. None of which I would label as 'chavvy' names(far from it).
Very few names solely belong to a specific social class which is why I think the whole 'chav name' thing is nonsense.

You might want to look at this thread. I think some original double-barrelled names might be the sort of think she's after.

Thanks for directing me to that thread onimolap. There's some great material on there.

My friend has told me she's definitely decided to go with Tiegan for one character but is still undecided on the second but she'll certainly be able to another one on that thread.

Thanks again.

Lexie, just Lexie, not short for anything

Harriet - I'm a chav and proud! wink

The really american type names are the ones i would label 'chav'

Teagan - yes definitely
Regan
Cole
Taylor - anything that sounds like it should be a profession or a surname
Hunter

That kind of thing really makes me think 'oh dear, how working class'

UnquietDad Sat 22-Jan-11 13:33:49

Madison, Mason, Tyler, etc.

Emma, Ruby, Tilly, Ella, Elsie, Kate, Eliza, Ava, Charlotte, Olivia, these are the most popular/in vogue girls names I know of at the minute. Assuming that's what you mean grin

I will not be commenting. I got into an argument discussion with the mother of a child whose name I had termed Chavvy.

Jenni-veev, I think NetMums might be a valuable research tool for your friend.
