I've looked around at all the new brand new shiny names out there, and dh and I just can decide on one. So we have decided to try and restore a name another MN poster doesn't want anymore. So if you have any names you've out-grown, are a little too old fashioned for you or simply not to your taste but you see how someone else might like them, feel free to donate them here...cannot offer any incentives other than the promise to give all offers due consideration smile

Haha.....quite possibly! Those names are mostly off limits as I know people with the names.....or dp has refused :-/

Im determined to have a jesse one day!!

These were on my short list for DD and DS:
Alyssa
Alana
Victoria
Georgia
She was none of these when she made herself known and looked me in the eye! Impending DD may be Georgia though!
Jack
Tom
Lucas
Christian

DH didn't like any of them so we have a different name for DD, which is lovely and very her, but I still love those.

Nancy. On the grounds that I am completely unable to produce girl children. Gabriel, Magnus and Wilfred were the names which didn't suit DS3.

Frikadellen Wed 23-Oct-13 16:55:08

Sholto for a boy

Karenza for a girl

Annie Victoria. We won't be having a DD2 now, so feel free.

May I donate the following to your very worthwhile cause?

Frances Q(uennie) - but it didn't go with DH's surname
Helena Maud ( she was a DS not a DD2)

and the boys names that fell off the list onto the delivery room floor when DS was born.

Hugh and Guy

Lor, it makes me alarmingly broody just looking at them. The children I never had, as I'm well beyond child bearing age now.

op, do let us know if you decide on any of these pre-loved names. Lovely thread. Thank you

I didn't have a daughter, so can I please donate Grace, I think it's a beautiful name but not great on a boy ;-)

lchats Thu 24-Oct-13 07:56:05

I will let you know what we choose I'm 37 weeks and by the looks of the above spoilt for choice - thanks for all the donations keep them coming...

Wanted Vivienne for a girl but turns out am having a boy - so please take that one!

I liked Gabriel for a boy but then called DD Gabriella so can't use that one either!

Amoret, from the Elizabethan epic The Faerie Queen. Everyone I mentioned it to just laughed and said wot, like the biscuits? To be fair it would NOT have suited her.

Layla and Sidonie for daughters I've never had. (Proud mum of three boys!)
