Octavia is a gorgeous name. I know a few and have never associated having money with the name - how odd? Octavia also sounds great in most languages so will 'travel' well. Lovely name imo!

I love Octavia but feel we'd need more money to carry it off!

Juneau not Junea.

October for a girl. And my DD was born in October so I could have used that. And Malachi for a boy. Or Titus.

Quinn is a masculine name to my ears, like Flynn, but I LOVE it for a boy!

Texas is okay, again, I'd say as a boy. Tex or Texie as a nn.

I know girls called Dakota (Tia), Indiana (India), Montana (Tanna), and Junea (not from same families, spread over, mainly American, families I know) and boys called Arizona (Az) and Colorado (Rad). It's possible, I guess.

I love Indigo, Raven (yes, fkr a boy), Sky, Storm, Cairo, Phoenix, Grey, Adler and Orion for a boy.

And Larkspur, Winter, Luna, Lyric, Harmony, Ember, Echo, Raeanna for girls.

There is a great book about a kid called Texas, or Tex for short. Boy though.

Quinn is a great name for boys! Sounds so masculine, like Finn.

Texas, I'm not sure I like, sorry. But I love Linus and Cornelius!

We've used names for our kids that we love, thankfully.

This is a joke, right? Please say it is. I wouldn't even use those on a pet.

Wow. What is it that you like about those names? confused

I think they are more suited to a boy. 'tex' rhymes with Rex, I like Rex, and that'd be a name I'd have thought about if I'd been braver. I also liked Julius.

I see Texas and Quinn more as boys names.

Names I like but wouldnt be brave enough to use include Amos, Cornelius and Linus which some would say aren't even really 'out there' but I like to play it a bit safer!!

Are what I would call my next DD (if I were to have another one), if I were brave enough.

What names do you love but probably wouldn't use?
