personalised bottles
I just picked up my DDs name in Ireland and also mine which I was really surprised about !

Mine was on the NZ list but only an abbreviation on the UK list. DH is on both and DD is on the UK list only. She's only one, don't know whether its sad to go out and find it for her!! grin

None of us are on there.

Mind you, I never have been able to get personalised stuff!

Weirdly my name is on there and DD's isn't. DD's name is much more common/classic/normal than mine.

DD's name was on the New Zealand list though.

There is going to be a tour of shopping centres where you can make your own if your name isn't on the list.

Nope, none of ours.

VinegarDrinker Sun 12-May-13 10:55:42

None of ours, bit surprised about DS as I thought his might be (definitely in top 100 recent baby names). Not at all surprised about me or DH, my name is unique and DH has a very Welsh name.

ReluctantlyBeingYoniMassaged Sun 12-May-13 10:59:16

They don't have my name or my son's. dp's is there though.

Both DC there on UK one.

ChippyMinton Sun 12-May-13 11:06:05

None of ours are there.

OnTheNingNangNong Sun 12-May-13 11:06:25

DH and my name are on the list ( feels onerous writing that) the DC are not on there, unsurprisingly.

MrsGeologist Sun 12-May-13 11:11:03

DH's name is there. None of the rest. Mine might be in Ireland, but no idea.

PregnantPain Sun 12-May-13 11:16:35

Page loaded straight on my DD's name ... weird. grin.
Short version of as yet unborn DS's name is there. Mine and DP's names aren't (but we have weird uncommon names..I like to think thats the reason at least grin)

BluddyNora Sun 12-May-13 11:35:11

Nope, mine isn't there, nor my DP or my two DS's

Mine is on the UK one as is ds's. The abbreviated form of dh's name (which everyone but me and his mum calls him grin) is on both but neither of the dds' names are there but I wouldn't have expected them to be as they are both unusual. Both dds' names are on the British one in their English versions though (their names are the Maltese versions of very normal British names)

I found my name the other day. It's not on the list in the above link though.

Januarymadness Sun 12-May-13 16:54:50

DD is there. DH and I aren't. Out names are not at all unusual but certainly "of an age"

nooka Sun 12-May-13 17:13:30

I've never come across my name on anything personalised and don't expect I ever will. I was however surprised that neither of my children's names on the UK list, as they are both pretty popular and have been for the last ten years. However dh's name is there, which makes me think that the demographic they looked at for names was adults not children (dh's name v popular in the 70s).

Slavetothechild Sun 12-May-13 17:32:54

One 1 of the 5 has a coke name sad and then it's a different spelling .

louisianablue2000 Sun 12-May-13 17:33:23

DH and I can get Coke bottles but the DC can't. Which is good because we have told them coke is for grown-ups (like wine wine), sadly DD1 is now onto us!

diddl Sun 12-May-13 18:35:37

Are people buying these, then?

What's the point of them?

JollyOrangeGiant Sun 12-May-13 18:40:57

DH and I are both on coke bottles. DS is not.

Prospective names for DC2 are not on the list either.

olivertheoctopus Sun 12-May-13 22:05:13

Neither of my DCs names are on the list.

Preposteroushypothesis Mon 20-May-13 21:34:52

Sooooo...before I saw the lists were on this thread I just tried to google if DDs name is on a coke bottle...I have discovered that there is a porn star with her name who does something presumably unsavoury with a coke bottle...I am now mentally scarred!

GaryBuseysTeeth Mon 20-May-13 21:57:48

DH is, DS isn't, nor are any of the names we're considering for DS2...there's more chance of hell freezing over than finding my name on one!

<brainbleach> for Preposterous!

cherhorowitz Mon 20-May-13 22:00:41

Mine and DP's names are. Youngest DD a maybe as I haven't found one yet but it's a pretty common name so probably but eldest DD probably not.
