Hi
I am only in my firat trimester but me and my OH already have some favourites names wise. I wondered what other people thought though.

For a girl we are pretty much settled on Savanna Brooke, its unusual and so I'm worried our parents wont like it, but it is a name which means something to us and reflects my OHs history so we are very keen on it.

For a boy we like Harvey Sebastian but I dont like Harv for short which is tricky....we also quite like Ryley and Dexter as first names so this one is less decided.

Any thoughts would be welcome. grin

I like Cooper, not keen on Harvey (Jordan, and also So Solid Crew), love Sebastien (and Bastian).

Savanna Brooke is very American to me - not saying that's necessarily a bad thing, just pointing it out.

Ryley I'm not sure about - definite prefer Sebastian.

I have a 10 year old Savannah and
a) she is never called Sav, Savvy, Chav or Chavvy. Often Vannah but I quite like that.
b) we live in the home counties and she's at private school

There is also a Harvey in her class.

I quite like all your name choices except Dexter but Savanna and Harvey would be my favourites.

I hope the op hasn't been frightened off mn for good as she could use the support if she is pregnant and her dh is away.
Susanna-Susannah
Joanna-Johanna
Hanna-Hannah
Savanna-Savannah
What on earth does it matter?It doesn't alter the sound of the name at all.

There,s a secret bit of me that desperately wants to call my baby dimples (I'm not joking!) luckily dp would rugby tackle me to the floor if I tried to register her as this! (Don't know what I'm having and v much hoping this is pregnancy hormones! )

Mary Zahira, maybe grin.

Hasn't anyone started one yet? There must be someone.

princess Maryz?

Off you go maryz and start that threads<lazy Norks is lazy>

Maryz Cote D'Ivoire Tue 12-Mar-13 22:20:08

We need a thread on that, don't we.

I vote for a perfectly standard name (Victoria or Elizabeth) with an interesting nickname.

Maryz, I don't think it was much of a humdinger sadly, I took the point swiftly and glady, grateful to have been saved by MN. grin Was a good 2 1/2 years ago so I can't remember the finer points.

I think the MN baby name board is an institution! You can bet Kate is on here somewhere contemplating posting her list for approval;

Elizabeth
Charles
Diana
Chelsea
Buckingham
Corgi

Etc.

Hey Moosey peace man, this thread is all about the love now.

SirChenjin Tue 12-Mar-13 21:42:51

Give the pot a big old stir now Moosey - go on, you know you want to.

Maryz Cote D'Ivoire Tue 12-Mar-13 21:34:59

There's always one [sigh]

It doesn't matter how nice a thread has become, there's always one.

Hey OP

You were ganged up on. Lots of people gleefully mocked you and the tone of several posts was unpleasant. If you love those names you should use them. Congratulations on your pregnancy!

Peek back in again sometime, OP!

Pregnancy hormones always made me very irritable, as well, as I mentioned upthread.
