DP has decided he likes Robyn/Robin for upcoming DC...I'm not too sure.
I suggested Erin and he claimed 'it wasnt bad' (high praise from my DP!)
So it seems the names we're going towards end in '-in'
Anyone got any others they can think of?

Alvin, Elvin, Melvin and Calvin also spring to mind for boys.

Gretchen?

I know an Aneurin, lovely name. I also love Quentin for a boy and Tamsin for a girl.

Corin - my favourite name for a boy, sadly never to be used.
Like Erin, also Catrin and Merryn's lovely. Owen (stretching it a bit!)?

Melvin? Mostyn? Quentin?

I know 2 men called Robin, who both shorten it to Rob and then have people assuming they are called Robert

I think Robyn is a lovely name for a girl, I went to school with one many moons ago grin and her name was never shortened

I misread Devon's post and though she was suggesting Dustbin as a good name.

<Looks at DS2. Contemplates namechange for him>

Merlyn was a female character in American Gothic if anyone remembers that. I liked the name at the time but didn't really know what it was as it seemed to be pronouced differently every time anyone said it - a bit like a slurred Marilyn.

Morten?

Franklin! We have a wee Franklin, shortens nicely to both Frank/Frankie and Fin/Flynn grin
