Have just dug a list of possible names for my future DC I made when I was 15 or 16. It contains such gems as:

Girls:

Misty
Rio
Destiny
Lutricia
Kiri
Loralei
Tea (with a dash over the 'e' i.e. pronounced Taya)
Pinkie

Boys:

Nolan
Drey
Bu
Jenner
Duane
Clifford
Fox
Wilder

Feel free to point and laugh, and to share the mental names you once thought you might call your DC.

Melanie, Nadine and Rachel.

I still like the name Rachel.

Mine were all loosely based on the name of whatever bloke I was seeing.
Rachel, Leah, Tess, Tara spring to mind.

I also loved Thea, Blaise, Diggory and Albert.

I used none of these names and they are not linked to dh's name either.

I had a child at 16! Thank heavens he was a DS as he got a nice name which I still love.
Had he been a dd my list contained -
Shari
Shani
Savannah
Chloe
Amber
Gabrielle.

I will admit to still loving Savannah but I have 4 dds and wouldn't dare use it!
Great thread

Peter
Michael

Lindsey
Emma

I loved Julie , it seemed so grown up and glamorous...

chipmonkey Mon 26-Nov-12 16:38:32

Angela and Nigel.(Nigel????? wtf?)

Then later, Edwina.In my defence, I knew two Edwinas, one was much younger than me and very cute, the other a little older and (to me) very sophisticated!

I was going to have 3 girls named Alexandria Victoria and Elizabeth or Sylvia (i was not sure on the last one) I was very into royalty.

A ds would have been Soren after my grandad.

I have 3 girls and a son none of them named the above but Elizabeth and Soren has made the shortlist and dd3 has Sorine as her middle name after much adored grandad.. (who passed away 6 months after she was born)

Dh on the other hand was going to have a dd called Phoebe after JD Salingers "the Catcher in the rye" guess what dd1 is called?

Girl: Ruby
Boy: Dimitri ....

Geranium3 Mon 26-Nov-12 19:56:57

mine were
paul
owen
katie
jenny
still like the girls names but didn't use them for my dd's

StellaNova Mon 26-Nov-12 21:28:41

Gary or Scott for a boy.

Any number of girls names including Sandra, Samantha and, as I have mentioned before on here to general mocking, the stunning Killashandra.

My two boys are not called Gary and Scott.

Lots of people are saying they're glad they didn't get pregnant at 15!

Do any MN teenage mums regret their naming choices now? (Say 5+ years later?)

My daughters were going to be called Roxanne and Liberty. I wasn't going to have sons.

My boy names were more or less what they are now; Jack (DS1), Alexander (DS2), Samuel and Edward, and other such classic/traditional type names.

As far as girl names go, I vividly remember thinking spelling Daisy as Daizee was "much cooler", and being adamant that's what I'd name a daughter if I had one. I also liked the name Angel-Rose. blush

My 3-year old daughter is named Sarah. Not quite as "cool" as Daizee or Angel-Rose, but it has charm!

Hawk for a boy, Thaiana for a girl...

I chose a name when I was 9 for the son i planned to have one day and he is called that; sometimes our younger selves have good taste in names.
