Not for a child. Maybe a dog.

dirtyface Fri 13-Sep-13 18:10:49

Have you got Scandinavian or Dutch/German heritage?

If so you could go for Henrik or Hendrik.

Zoe789 Fri 13-Sep-13 18:25:53

oh no, she doesn't! sorry, I was joking, you said you you were musicians. Gwen Stefani is pregnant I think.

Ignore me. I'll get my coat wink

My DS1 is James which is partly after Jimi (and various other rock-types). That is probably way too conventional. I'd probably make friends with you at baby group on this basis (lots of his tracks popped up on my hospital playlist whilst I was labouring with DS2 so its a good coversation starter) although my alternative roots are very deeply buried these days.

One of my DC's has Hendrix as a middle fifth name.
I have a Lennon, Coltrane and a Marley too.

And off course Billie (for Billie Holiday)

I am, of course, the epitome of cool grin

My friend wants this name for her next child. I think it's great.

Both the people I know who are called Hendrix, have brothers called Otis, I think it's a lovely name, better than having to be called by your surname because the half the class has the same name as you.

The parent of a Hendrix would be big into air guitar.

Lennon isn't bad, I quite like Otis but Hendrix is too linked with just one person. Maybe it's a bit too fan girl/boy for me.

dirtyface Fri 13-Sep-13 19:28:47

oh i looooooove all those names mrsdevere

marley is lovely, would be one of my choices, but my friend already has a :/

and lol at being big in to air guitar grin we definitely are! well dh's is real grin

I think it's quite a big name to pull off? What if he's a shy little thing? But nothing against the name as such.

squoosh Fri 13-Sep-13 19:37:17

MrsDeVere Fri 13-Sep-13 19:45:31

My next baby is going to be called Clash

not having anymore

Rhubarbgarden Fri 13-Sep-13 19:56:58

It's a bit naff. A bit 'ooh we're rockers what's the first cool rocker name that springs to mind'. Even though it's uncommon, It seems a bit too obvious. I think if I wanted to celebrate a rocky background I'd be looking for something a bit more original, like some of the other names suggested on this thread.

mignonette Fri 13-Sep-13 20:01:34

MrsDeVere grin. How about Sandinista for a girl Clash fan?

MrsDeVere Fri 13-Sep-13 20:05:15

Ooooh I may have to get cats. So many names to use up (thats why DC5 ended up with five grin)

mignonette Fri 13-Sep-13 20:06:58

I fancy 'Free Bird'. I could like that as a name.

dirtyface Fri 13-Sep-13 20:10:42

squoosh

other bands dh / i / we like: oh loads. of the top of my head, led zeppelin, iron maiden, metallica, guns n roses, queens of the stone age, pearl jam, sabbath, free, cream, halestorm, slash, velvet revolver, the cult

i have considered Axl blush

squoosh Fri 13-Sep-13 20:19:11

Bonham
Bruce
Lars
Joshua
Ozzy

My cousin actually has an Axel, it really suits him, it was a proper name before Axl Rose came along. I agree that Hendrix is a bit too 'we really like rock music so we gave our kids the most recognisably 'rock' name we could think of'.

NatashaBee Fri 13-Sep-13 20:21:03

Axl? Hetfield? Ozzy?

Rooners Fri 13-Sep-13 20:25:18

Only if your surname is Jimi. Then it would be almost poetic.

ALadyHippo Fri 13-Sep-13 20:30:50

I like it. Going on the list for next DC.
