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?

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

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?

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

<Looks at DS2. Contemplates namechange for him>

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

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

Oh, I love Aneirin. Can be Nye too shortened. Super.

Oswin (heard it on a thread here somewhere) for a boy.

Love Robin/yn.

PandaNot Mon 19-Nov-12 20:07:40

Arwen? Sort of similar.

Anonymumous Mon 19-Nov-12 20:04:28

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

Gretchen?

Anonymumous Mon 19-Nov-12 20:01:00

If we are heading into 'ine' territory rather than 'in', you could also have Seraphine, Evangeline, Emmeline, Jacqueline and Delphine and then all the less pretty 'eens' such as Doreen, Maureen, Noreen, Eileen, Jean etc.

And Tarquin or Quinn or Finn for boys. And Dean.

Pasiphae Mon 19-Nov-12 14:50:17

Josephine? Celine, and loads of ine French based names Albertine, Victorine, Leontine, Alexine, Alfonsine, Marine Ottoline, Jessamine, Augustine, Amandine, Celestine, Capucine...

Cymbeline, Marvin?

A-NEIGH-rin
