howardbear Fri 11-Jan-13 13:25:02

i had my second child 5 weeks ago and have given them a name i really love, but im beginning to get paranoid that people dont like it, nobody has been rude enough to say it to my face but ive had the line 'oh that's different/unusual' a bit (which it isnt) so im gunna put it to the test if i can and ask you to tell me what names you LOVE or HATE or even what you LIKE or DISLIKE from the lists below (the other names are friends/family)

dont know if i'd be more upset if people said they hated it or if it wasnt mentioned at all, lol!

here are the names:-

GIRLS:- sophie, kiera, ruby, elin, bethan, erin, seren, brooke, maisie, mollie, haylie, layla, jasmine.

BOYS:- joseph, flynn, jack, arthur, rhys, robbie, henry, ellis, toby, oliver, jacob, james, dylan, alfie, logan.

thanks for looking x

comeonbishbosh Fri 11-Jan-13 13:39:42

Congratulations on your DD! And you gave her a name you really love... that's as good as anyone does.

If you've mooched around this board any length of time you will know just how different everyone's taste is regarding names. And this is a (moderately) random group of people. Even within my circle of friends and family there's such a range of names that I personally like and don't like so much, that I would or wouldn't of chosen. But it makes not a whit of difference to how I see them as parents or how I get on with their DCs.

I know sometimes that I feel a bit defensive about the name of my DD, and probably will about the name of my DC to come, both of which are/will be moderately on the different/unusual scale. But though it's nice to think of yourself as someone who choses good names for your DC (and how differently we all define 'good' ha ha), almost every other aspect of being a parent is more important!

Good luck with it all!

evamummy Fri 11-Jan-13 13:43:07

But why on earth SHOULD we expect everyone else to share OUR tastes?! Thankfully we all have different tastes and choose different names for our children. The more names there are, the easier life becomes and also the more interesting!

Arithmeticulous Fri 11-Jan-13 13:47:56

GIRLS:- sophie like, kiera - don't like that spelling, ruby like but loads around, elin wouldn't spell it like that , bethan like , erin like , seren like , brooke dislike bigtime, maisie love , mollie love , haylie dislike , layla dislike , jasmine don't like .

BOYS:- joseph love , flynn like , jack like , arthur love , rhys like , robbie like , henry like , ellis like , toby love , oliver like , jacoblove , james like , dylan don't like, alfie love , logan don't like

If it's any consolation, my DC4 has an obvious Marmite name. I got a lot of "Oh hmm" and one (marvellous) 'HA shock Really? Ha grin' Now he's older, it's just him - no one I meet now makes any comment at all. It's as if it's easier to pass judgment comment on a newborn who has just been assigned a name, than a 'proper' child who just becomes that name.

Trills Fri 11-Jan-13 13:48:46

I think you are overthinking. It doesn't matter.

But if you really want to know

Girls:
Sophie - fine
Kiera - fine
Ruby - fine
Elin - didn't know this was a name
Bethan - fine
Erin - not particularly keen
Seren - didn't know this was a name
Brooke - not particularly keen
Maisie - fine
Mollie - fine but she will have to say "with an ie"
Haylie - don't like it - I think it's the "wrong" spelling (unlike Mollie/Molly where I think either is fine)
Layla - not particularly keen
Jasmine - fine

Boys:
Joseph - fine
Flynn - fine
Jack - fine
Arthur - fine
Rhys - I wouldn't know how to pronounce this
Robbie - I don't like shortened names as full names
Henry - fine
Ellis - less keen but OK
Toby - fine
Oliver - fine
Jacob - fine
James - fine
Dylan - fine
Alfie - I don't like shortened names as full names
Logan - less keen but OK

rachel234 Fri 11-Jan-13 13:52:14

Agree - why does it matter what us random internetters think of YOUR childrens' names. Thankfully we all have different tastes - you might dislike my kids' names!

But ok, here are the names I like (although I don't love any) - Sophie, Erin, Joseph and Henry.
And here are the names I dislike - Kiera, Ruby, Brooke, Maisie, Mollie, Maisie, Haylie, Layla, Jasmine, Robbie, Toby, Alfie and Logan.

Hope that helps.

ladymia Fri 11-Jan-13 13:52:54

i am not sure what it matters now smile

ChuffMuffin England Fri 11-Jan-13 13:56:14

Personally the only name I'm not keen on is Maisie, and that's only because meisie (pronounced similarly) means girl in Dutch/Afrikaans.

The really important thing is that you like the names. They're your kids, as long as you're not calling them something ridiculous like Optimus Prime or Toilet Duck, who cares what other people think? smile

Narked Fri 11-Jan-13 13:59:29

It doesn't matter what we think! You've made your choice and you say you 'really love' it. They'll get used to it!

MarilynValentine Fri 11-Jan-13 14:02:45

They're all great names. You didn't include Spliffany in your list, or Dolt. Two names that may understandably make eyes roll a little.

Everyone else can bugger off, they are your DC, and you love their names.

(Apologies to any Spliffanys or Dolts reading).

grin at Optimus Prime and toilet duck.

I think all of them are fine.

Some I wouldn't choose like Haylie and Brooke, but don't have a strong response to other people choosing the name they like.

Nobody can pronounce first time, let alone spell my kids names and I don't give a monkey's because we chose them and they have meaning to us (and not close to toilet duck!)

howardbear Fri 11-Jan-13 14:06:23

wow, thanks for the responses!!

i know it doesnt matter what people think and i do love the names ive chosen, but its nice to get an unbiased, honest opinion on what people think, its interesting to see that people generally seem to think its a nice name and my eldest has come under fire a lot more for his name choice (which in real life is generally really liked)

rachel234 Fri 11-Jan-13 14:07:13

Imagine if we all loved the same names and everyone was named, say, Jack and Sophie, for example...! Life would be really dull and very confusing!

Name variety is a good thing so thank goodness we have different tastes!

sooperdooper Fri 11-Jan-13 14:08:21

I don't think any of those names are particularly different/unusual, they're all perfectly normal smile

Narked Fri 11-Jan-13 14:08:36

Is Toilet Duck for a girl or a boy?

RooneyMara Fri 11-Jan-13 14:10:19

GIRLS:- sophie, yes. kiera, no. ruby, yes. elin, mm-mm not really but I don't like Ella/Ellen/Eleanor either. bethan, Ok. erin, no. seren, yes. brooke, no. maisie, ok. mollie, no. haylie, no. layla, no, jasmine, Ok.

BOYS:- joseph, yes. flynn, ok. jack, ok. arthur, ok. rhys, ok - bit chavish here though now. robbie, no. henry, ok. ellis, maybe. toby, yes. oliver, no. jacob, no. james, ok. dylan, no. alfie, no. logan, ok.

Trills Fri 11-Jan-13 14:11:54

Are you going to tell us which are your DCs then?

extracrunchy Fri 11-Jan-13 14:12:08

I actually think they're all nice names!

RooneyMara Fri 11-Jan-13 14:12:12

ps my kids have freak names, smile don't stress it - your choice, that's the important bit.

Narked Fri 11-Jan-13 14:13:10

Do I win a Sherlock prize for guessing you or your family are a bit Welsh grin

MorrisZapp Fri 11-Jan-13 14:14:57

Ive never heard of Seren. And I think Elin is Tiger Woods's wife's name? ie Swedish. Guess she's his ex now.

Ellis for a boy, not loving. The rest seem normal and inoffensive enough.

whatyoulookinat Fri 11-Jan-13 14:15:00

Elin- fine if spelt correctly *Ellen.
Brooke- awful.
Seren- sounds like a made up name but what do I know.
Hsylie- dated.

Logan- awful.

All the other names are nice.

Just my opinion though smile

NaturalBaby Fri 11-Jan-13 14:19:22

They're all lovely!
My 3rd dc has an 'unusual' name, and we get very strange looks when we call him by his nicname but we love it so I don't really care what anyone else thinks.

LoopsInHoops Fri 11-Jan-13 14:19:45

Come on, you have to tell us what they are now!

howardbear Fri 11-Jan-13 14:22:04

yes, i live in wales, quite a few welsh names in there!!!

peeriebear Fri 11-Jan-13 14:23:32

Elin is the Scandi/Swedish spelling.
My DS is 16wks old and whenever I tell people his name they do that polite raised eyebrows "Really? How unusual" grin

SamSmalaidh Fri 11-Jan-13 14:27:13

I think they're all fine, Brooke, Haylie and Logan aren't to my taste but I don't hate them either. Robbie and Alfie look like nicknames to me.

howardbear Fri 11-Jan-13 14:28:31

my kids are robbie and toby, and i love both of their names!!

just confused me when i had similar comments about toby being different!!

ive only ever had good comments about robbie's name, but he is blonde haired/blue eyed cheeky little chappy who really suits his name.

SamSmalaidh Fri 11-Jan-13 14:29:08

Elin and Seren are both perfectly legitimate names too, Seren is becoming very popular now.

Dillydollydaydream Fri 11-Jan-13 14:30:07

Girls:
Sophie - nice but prefer Sophia
Kiera - not one of my favourites, thanks to ms knightly.
Ruby - Nice
Elin - Nice
Bethan - Nice
Erin - Ok
Seren - Like
Brooke - Not so keen
Maisie - Sweet
Mollie - ok
Haylie - Not so keen
Layla - like

Boys:

Arthur - Becoming more popular
Rhys - Ok
Robbie - No keen

Oliver, Jacob and James - Ok, popular
Dylan, Alfie and Logan - Ok

Dillydollydaydream Fri 11-Jan-13 14:31:32

blush cross posted op

Nowt wrong with your DS's names, OP. I really like Toby.

ShirleyB25 Fri 11-Jan-13 14:40:35

Love Erin and Bethan, maybe not so keen on Haylie, all the rest of names are fine. Like all the boys names, particularly Ellis, as we have a son by that name and he is a lovely!

ShirleyB25 Fri 11-Jan-13 14:41:08

Lad

Hanikam Fri 11-Jan-13 14:45:19

OP, it's your choice of name. Why worry what others think?
My DS1 is called Hamza, and right after we named there where headlines everywhere about that disgusting Abu Hamza. No we did not name our son after him. No we don't follow his vile tripe.

Second Ds is called Sufyan, otherwise known as Sophie Ann!

omri Fri 11-Jan-13 14:45:53

all the names you listed are really lovely - honestly! I worried after my ds1 that people thought it was silly but i LOVE it and thats all that matters at the end of the day.

atthewelles Fri 11-Jan-13 15:38:12

Robbie and Toby are gorgeous names. And I'm not just saying that, I gave them both the thumbs up in my post on pg 1. I particularly love Toby.

plantsitter Fri 11-Jan-13 15:41:46

It doesn't matter eventually; as people get to know the person they like or dislike the person not the name.

DitzyDonkeySillyMonkey Fri 11-Jan-13 15:42:51

GIRLS:- sophie , ruby, seren, maisie, mollie are the only ones I sorta like!

BOYS:- arthur, henry, ellis, toby, oliver, jacob, james....like these

AlfalfaMum Fri 11-Jan-13 15:47:42

Like all your listed names except Brooke, Haylie, Logan, Rhys and Henry.

I like Robbie, love Toby or Tobias.

Tiiiny Fri 11-Jan-13 15:50:27

Crossed out the ones I don't like or seem (to me) to be spelt incorrectly.

GIRLS:- sophie, kiera, ruby, elin, bethan, erin, seren, brooke, maisie, mollie, haylie, layla, jasmine.

BOYS:- joseph, flynn, jack, arthur, rhys, robbie, henry, ellis, toby, oliver, jacob, james, dylan, alfie, logan.

Jojobump1986 Fri 11-Jan-13 15:58:48

I like lots of those names but I have a soft spot for Welsh names & would never have suspected that your DSs' names would've been classed as the unusual ones in those lists! They're perfectly lovely names IMO.

lljkk Netherlands Fri 11-Jan-13 16:02:07

Toby is the name people think is unusual?! There are two Toby's in DD's small y6 year. It's a meh name for me, but not at all unusual or bothersome.

I thought your kids would be Layla and Elin..

Bowlersarm Fri 11-Jan-13 16:06:37

I have a Toby. He's a 6ft teen now

orangepudding Fri 11-Jan-13 16:07:32

Girls names I only like Sophie, Ruby is okay all the others I names I dislike.

Boys, I like most of them but dislike Flynn, Rhys, Alfie and Logan.

lottiegarbanzo Fri 11-Jan-13 16:10:29

Robbie and Toby are both really nice and amongst the nicest and most normal on your lists. I wouldn't bat an eyelid.

orangepudding Fri 11-Jan-13 16:12:03

Toby is a great name, was on my list but dh said no!

mumsywoo78 Fri 11-Jan-13 16:38:30

they r all nice normal names but i kinda know what your goin through i dont know if uve read previous threads of mine. im suffering severe anxiety over wheather iv gave my 3mnth old the right name even tho iv loved it 4 ages. his name is noah & i had a few bad reactions to his name which really bothered me . iv even had panic attacks over his name & thought i was goin mad! i even cannot bring myself to use his name anymore. im getting better now tho but its still a major issue for me.please dont let other ppls reactions affect u and end up like me. they r all lovely names.

mumsywoo78 Fri 11-Jan-13 16:41:33

oh & jasmine was my girls name if id have had a girl!

akaemmafrost Fri 11-Jan-13 16:43:21

Girls: not keen on Kiera. Like all the others.

Boys: not keen on Flynn, Logan or Dylan, like all the others, really like Ellis and Tobias, both were contenders for ds.

FoofFighter Fri 11-Jan-13 16:53:00

Lovely names smile

Toby is on my list.

thegreylady Fri 11-Jan-13 16:55:37

The only ones I dont like are Haylie[ mainly because the spelling is wrong] and Brooke-the others are all fine and some are lovely.
Girls my top 3 would be:Maisie Erin and Mollie
Boys ditto: Toby Arthur and Henry but I dont dislike any of them.

howardbear Fri 11-Jan-13 17:22:46

thanks for all your lovely messages, its really reassuring to know the names we picked arent universally hated, its soooooooooo hard to choose names but they kinda filled our criteria of nice normal names that arent too popular!!

mumsywoo78 Noah is a gorgeous name, that was on our shortlist, only pipped at the post by toby cos we know of 2 noah's in our area x

McKayz Germany Fri 11-Jan-13 17:35:45

I love Toby. DS2 was almost Toby but became Dylan at the last minute.

farmersdaugther Fri 11-Jan-13 17:49:44

I love love Toby!

Robbie is also a lovely name.

Yfronts Fri 11-Jan-13 21:08:20

like - sophie, ruby, bethan, seren, brooke, maisie, mollie, jasmine.

like - joseph, flynn, jack, arthur, toby, jacob, james,

WizardofOs Fri 11-Jan-13 21:12:49

I don't hate any of them. I meet lots if new babies in my job and I swear only one name has ever made me think - WTF! Not one on your list!

MadBusLady Fri 11-Jan-13 21:17:26

Those are both lovely, strong, popular names. I'm amazed if you've had anyone disliking them. Toby in particular is great.

I would have put "Robert" on the birth cert for Robbie probably but that's just me. DP is Robert and refuses to be Robbie sad

BoyMeetsWorld Fri 11-Jan-13 21:24:21

Don't love any of the girls ones but like Jasmine and Seren, don't like Hailey or Elin.

Much prefer the boys, particularly Dylan (love), Toby and Logan. Don't like Rhys or Ellis and Alfie too common.

You're v brave doing this!

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 12-Jan-13 13:17:37

- sophie - perfectly nice
kiera - should be Ciara
ruby - dislike
elin - lovely
bethan - dislike,purely because I knew a few horrible ones growing up
erin- okay
Seren- lovely
Brooke - dislike
Maisie - hate
mollie - dislike with ie ending,
haylie - hate with ie spelling
layla - lovely
jasmine - lovely

Joseph - handsome classic name,
Flynn - really like
jack - dull
Arthur - love!
rhys - classic name,like
robbie - dislike - it's a nickname
henry - love
ellis - prefer with one L,but like it
toby - dislike
oliver - is okay
jacob - fine,classic
james - realt handsome (a version of jacob though)
dylan - like if pronounced correctly otherwise hate
alfie - dislike
logan - dislike

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 12-Jan-13 13:19:46

*bollocks,was doing that on my phone...I don't dislike Toby. Thank you autocorrect!

VinegarDrinker Sat 12-Jan-13 13:27:31

How do you pronounce Dylan wrong?!

OP I love your boys names. I wanted a Toby but DH vetoed it. Love most of your girl shortlist too.

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 12-Jan-13 13:30:50

Pronouncing it - Dillun is wrong. It's Duhlan.

Bagofmashings Sat 12-Jan-13 13:37:02

I think it doesn't really matter what anyone else thinks. When DH 1st told me DSC's names I wasn't at all sure I liked them but I soon grew to absolutely love the names as they belonged to people I love, iyswim. After a while, even if people aren't that keen now, the name will just become your dd.
my DS has one of those names you either love or hate I think, the important think is I absolutely love it.

CountBapula Sat 12-Jan-13 13:37:58

Dylan Thomas pronounced it 'Dillon'. (And so does my DS grin)

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 12-Jan-13 13:42:31

Dylan Thomas famously detested Wales,I don't think he was much bothered about pronouncing it properly.

Obviously the way it is pronounced can be affected by regional accents but generally speaking,it's not meant to be like the character from the magic round about

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

VinegarDrinker Sat 12-Jan-13 13:54:47

That's interesting re Dylan. Wiki says both are fine, with "dillon" being the English pronunciation. I guess like many other names it has been Anglicised in pronunciation if not spelling (though I have seen it spelled Dillon).

FelicityWasSanta Sat 12-Jan-13 13:56:05

Both lovely normal, conventional names IMO. Stop worrying and enjoy!

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 12-Jan-13 14:03:09

Vinegar obviously both are fine smile but I presumed OP was Welsh because there were a few Welsh names dotted through the lists.

VinegarDrinker Sat 12-Jan-13 14:06:56

Both are fine isn't quite what you said initially wink I assume if she's Welsh herself she'd know the Welsh pronunciation. Here in London I've only met "dillon"s and would pronounce it like that unless the parents told me otherwise.

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 12-Jan-13 14:09:18

Sorry Vinegar,I think sometimes I type forgetting that it will come across differently to how it would if it was a speaking conversation,so it doesn't always end up reading how I meant it to. sad

VinegarDrinker Sat 12-Jan-13 14:14:57

Hah, this is Baby Names, it's meant to be about loves and hates! No need to apologise!

McKayz Germany Sat 12-Jan-13 14:15:24

Dylan pronounced Dillon is fine. It's DS2 name and when we went on holiday to Wales they all pronounced it Dillon too.

Jasbro Sat 12-Jan-13 15:51:54

I think all of the names are perfectly lovely. Please don't let yourself get paranoid - I had some reactions like you've described when we called our first daughter Ivy - but we weathered it and I'm so happy I never let anyone else's opinions affect my choice.

One of my daughters is called Greer and EVERYONE has an opinion on it. At the end of the day, I love her name, her Daddy was talked round to it ;) and it really suits her. My criteria was that I wanted my children to each have a name that nobody else in their schoolclass had, but which wasn't totally wacky. If people don't like their names, that's their trouble grin If they express to you that they don't like the name of your child, that's downright rude imho. If you can't say anything nice, say nothing at all.

JustAFewRory Sat 12-Jan-13 16:30:39

I love Greer.

noddyholder Sat 12-Jan-13 16:35:20

I love greer too Never heard it before as a christian name

JustAFewRory Sat 12-Jan-13 16:37:46

Greer Garson, old time actress.

legalalien Sat 12-Jan-13 16:39:18

Greer Robson, not quite so old time actress smile

That's who I like to mention, everyone usually asks if I named her after Germaine Greer since I'm a bit of a manhating feminist wink

All fine except Haylie (Surely its Hayley) and Robbie (chavvy).

I hope your kids aren't called Haylie and Robbie.

Mind you when people hear my kids names the comment is always 'ooohhh very middle class' which I am but still grates a little. I would always be gracious about someone's choice of name even if I didn't like it.

Oh and another comment we get is 'are you German' ha ha so what if I am!

Just don't sweat it I am trying to say as long as you like them ignore other people.

McKayz Germany Sat 12-Jan-13 17:04:45

Madame, you didn't read all of OP's posts did you? smile

mathanxiety Sat 12-Jan-13 17:05:46

GIRLS:-
sophie, nice
kiera, nice
ruby, nice but very popular
elin, LOVE
bethan, meh, sounds a bit dumpy to my ear
erin, sweet, short name; I wouldn't use it as I'm Irish but not a bad name
seren, LOVE
brooke, has a harsh sound imo
maisie, too nicknamey imo
mollie, too old ladyish imo
haylie, nice, sounds like a name for a girl who does sports, is outgoing...
layla, like a lot
jasmine, like a lot

BOYS:-
joseph, LOVE
flynn, don't like -- makes me think 'skinflint' and also an Irish surname
jack, like but very popular
arthur, it's ok, for some reason I like the E European Artur spelling
rhys, like a lot
robbie, like if short for Robert
henry, like a lot
ellis, like
toby, like
oliver, LOVE even though it's popular
jacob, ok, maybe a bit dated
james, like
dylan, like
alfie, dislike
logan, nice

(Love Greer)

delilah88 Sat 12-Jan-13 17:58:23

The only really crap name from your list is Maisie, imo

exoticfruits Sat 12-Jan-13 18:07:05

Only like Sophie out of girls although Bethan OK.
Boys like James, Oliver, Henry,Joseph, Jack and not the rest.

LaurenCaddy Sat 12-Jan-13 18:28:16

We chose Seren as a middle name in the end, it means Star in Welsh, after reading so many comments saying they've never heard of it. I wanted it as a first name but OH wanted Isabelle too much. Although the reason we chose Seren was because of the word Serendipity, which means a happy accident. Haha, kinda fitted! But if she asks, it means star.

I love Erin also.

The rest are lovely, some a little common but still pretty. But can't stand Ruby. Always think of some pornographic skank of a model or a dingy club.

Boys names are all lovely. Out of them Robbie is actually my least favourite, but it works for you and that's what matters. Couldn't have Jack/Alfie/Charlie because all our dogs are named those. I love Logan!! We love Zachary as well.
