Honestly?

Showgirl109 Wed 26-Oct-16 02:33:37

Honestly no.

York2016 Wed 26-Oct-16 02:35:03

Ah, okay sad thanks!

HappyCamel Wed 26-Oct-16 03:09:11

Do you have a festive surname?

ZingDramaQueenOfSheeba Wed 26-Oct-16 03:09:39

Yes, of course you can. Why not?

You can't have Batman & Robin though. Unless you have a Butler too😉

York2016 Wed 26-Oct-16 03:14:00

Nope, surname is Taylor smile

HappyCamel Wed 26-Oct-16 03:23:23

I think you can squeak it then if
you love the names. Academically and professionally no one will give a monkey's what their sibling is called so as long as you're happy why worry?

MinnowAndTheBear Wed 26-Oct-16 03:26:05

No, you really can't.

If they were twins it might be a problem. If they aren't most people won't know that they have a sibling also with a Christmassy type name.

At least it's a nice association. I heard a mother yelling for Rook and Raven in a park. I looked around for little Buzzard but he was nowhere to be seen. If you are going with a bird theme, why carrion eaters?

Could have been Puffin I suppose.

Actually I think it's ok.

It's not an association that would jump right out at me I don't think and they are both great names.

Dixie
A friend of mine knew twins called Adam & Eve - now that is weird for siblings.
I knew twins called Vanilla & Cinnamon. 15 years later I'm still sighing & shaking my head.

Holly & Robin are fine. If there's a Christmas connection it's quite sweet actually.
Go for it OP.

Yes you can.

loveyogalovelife Wed 26-Oct-16 05:40:24

Holly and Robin... I don't like the name Robin personality but Holly is lovely

SorenaJ Wed 26-Oct-16 08:22:24

Sure

Pluto30 Wed 26-Oct-16 08:27:57

I never knew Robin was associated with Christmas...

So, I'd say yes.

WordGetsAround Wed 26-Oct-16 08:29:22

Yes - definitely!

BertrandRussell Wed 26-Oct-16 08:30:31

No of course you can't. You can't have Carol and Noel either........

mouldycheesefan Wed 26-Oct-16 08:31:40

😂😂 no

BeingATwatItsABingThing Wed 26-Oct-16 08:32:41

Are there birthdays around Christmas?

Unfortunately, I immediately thought Christmas when I saw the thread title. People will pick up on it. They are both nice names though.

ImAMoving Wed 26-Oct-16 08:33:15

Of course you can!
I think they googelt together and so what if people think you have a theme for your names, most people won't even twig.
Lovely names OP, go for it.

Lots of people have flower Themes, wildlife themes, this is even less obvious that than. Ignore all the boring posters.

starsinyourpies Wed 26-Oct-16 08:33:50

No! I have a 'seasonal' name. Don't do it. I do like both Holly and Robin though.

17caterpillars1mouse Wed 26-Oct-16 08:34:06

I think it's fine and both are lovely names

rainbowstardrops Wed 26-Oct-16 08:35:15

Of course you can!!! Especially if they're both Christmas time babies.
Can't understand why people think you couldn't.

LynetteScavo Wed 26-Oct-16 08:35:26

I think yes!

BeingATwatItsABingThing Wed 26-Oct-16 08:39:42
