Lucius, Crispin, Portia and Araminta....I work in a rather posh school. Jolly hockey sticks!

dontbesodramatic I had to read your post about 5 times before I concluded it was in the place grin

Hermione I suppose. Though I don't really think it's posh,just unusual. No nickname though! I intend to use it one day grin

Montgomery for a boy nn Monty. Think it might be asking to too much of OH to agree to that as well as Hermione though sad

Ever long-grin

Another one for Montague (Monty) for a boy. I also had Sebastian, Rufus and Hugo on my list which DH said were too posh!

Not so keen on posh sounding girls names myself although my old Headmistress was called Perdita which is quite posh and I do like that name smile

My friend's brother is called Digby hmm

BonaDea Thu 22-Nov-12 15:23:58

Camilla
Sebastian

Both vetoed (we'll see about that)

Persephone!

foofooyeah Thu 22-Nov-12 15:30:40

I cant even say it but

Scheherazade

Like Cosmo for a boy

CatKitson Thu 22-Nov-12 15:34:18

Arlo isnt posh is it?

Alisvolatpropiis Thu 22-Nov-12 15:34:49

*foo

I like Sherazade too but cannot for the life of me say it properly blush

Alisvolatpropiis Thu 22-Nov-12 15:35:13

Can't spell it either apparently grin

Corygal Thu 22-Nov-12 15:37:38

It's pronounced Shez-raid. I was at school with Ms Goldsmith, see.

I ache for Inigo but I just couldn't do it to a babe.

Jacinta is a cool posh name.

goralka Thu 22-Nov-12 15:40:07

are you sure about Shez-raid?
i thought it was sheh-hera-zard?

foofooyeah Thu 22-Nov-12 15:42:01

Ooooo Corygal ... its got to sound better than Shez-raid ?? surely

My dreams are dashed

Do like Inigo though - but agree how much ribbing would child get.

CatKitson Thu 22-Nov-12 15:43:46

Isnt it pronounced She-hare-ah-za-day?

ExitPursuedByMarieAntoinette Thu 22-Nov-12 15:47:39

Sheh-hera-zard surely?

I have a Cordelia (middle name).

I like Calypso.

MrsBungleBear Thu 22-Nov-12 15:49:32

I am not a fan of most posh names but I very much like Raef (is it spelt like this or is it spelt Ralph and pronouned Raef? See, I am not posh) and Camilla and Cordelia

All the posh people I know are called William, Elizabeth, Edward Charlotte etc. it seems really posh people have no imagination whatsoever

Poppy03 Thu 22-Nov-12 16:41:08

I love Edward, but dislike "Eddie" - is there another nn for Edward??
