Ok so I entered my daughter into the local newspapers best baby competition. I've bought the newspaper today and in my daughter's category there are the following:

Acer (girl)
Minnie
Oakley
Sasha-Belle (actually love this but still..)
Maisie-Mae
Jäger (girl)
Avah'Riane
Tyla-Jay (girl)
Harijak (as in Harry Jack, not a mixed heritage baby from photo/surname)
Riley-Gareth
Teejai (boy)
Ocean (girl)
And that old favourite....Nevaeh : )

grin that feels better!

in the UK??

Bringmewineandcake Thu 28-Feb-13 17:31:47

Yep! smile
Have name changed in case parents of said children track me down...doesn't seem to have changed my first post though!

FellNel Thu 28-Feb-13 17:34:18

Bloody hell. I am not even sure how one would start to pronounce most of those.

Goodness!! You expect the parents to have been in JK asking for DNA test with names lone that, nibs if them with any teeth wink

On JK not in smile

Bringmewineandcake Thu 28-Feb-13 18:14:34

I feel I might have to change my daughter's name so she'll fit in with her future classmates!

PixelAteMyFace Thu 28-Feb-13 18:30:25

What would you change your Dd`s name to? I suggest Lottie-Love smile

For a boy I think Beau-Lox is nice grin

cantfindadecentusername Thu 28-Feb-13 18:32:19

Following Carrielou's JK comment, it probably is more indicative of the type of people who would enter their child into a best baby competition than your child's future classmates in general...

Varya Thu 28-Feb-13 18:34:37

For a boy this week I like Jody.

I live on an estate, you should hear some of the names round here...

Bexley-Oceana
Frank
Brian
HappiStar (i absolutely kid you NOT)

I could go on. grin

However, whatever my opinions on these childrens names, I believe you have the right to name your children whatever you like.

I forgot, theres an Araminta, too hmm

Ginebra Thu 28-Feb-13 18:52:35

Wow that is some list. I can hardly believe it's in the UK
I like Sasha and Belle, but it's overkill together. I know a child called Maisie -Jane.

BeeBopDingALing Thu 28-Feb-13 19:30:05

Wow that's a bit of a different bunch! But Maisie-Mae oh my goodness that's awful.

Empress77 Thu 28-Feb-13 19:34:26

oi whats wrong with Brian?

Bringmewineandcake Thu 28-Feb-13 22:20:43

Pixelatemyface I think Lottie-Love is fab!

I think a combo of the most repeated choices would be best so Lacey-Lexi-Mae-Mai it is grin

getmeoutofthismadhouse Thu 28-Feb-13 23:00:20

I know a Minnie , her siblings all have quite ordinary names (think Chloe, john , David, Rebecca) and then out comes Minnie ! I'm sure parents now just think of a name and find the weirdest spelling they can and lumber their kids with it !!

Poor children sad

UnrequitedSkink Thu 28-Feb-13 23:04:38

I know a Lottee-Lou. Or is it Lottee Lu? Must check...

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Fri 01-Mar-13 11:02:50

There won't be any confusion over nursery coat pegs. Refreshing to see such variety!

FriggFRIGGisPoorlySick Fri 01-Mar-13 12:26:34

I like Acer and Oakley...

the other names are just,well,I'm not surprised to see them in a 'judge-my-baby-soley-on-their-outer-beauty-and-then-give-me-money-competion'. hmm

maidmarian What on earth is wrong with Frank?

happychappyJB Fri 01-Mar-13 16:33:36

I am a teacher and you should see some of the names we get in school -

Jedi (seriously)
Female (pronounced Fem-ah-lee)
Kofi (for a short white ginger kid!)
Klamidia (so not joking - it's practically abuse!)

It's so bad!

OkayHazel Fri 01-Mar-13 16:48:35

Maybe it just says something about the types of parents who enter their babies into these competitions! (sorry OP)

happychappy I actually don't believe you about some of those - they are well-known to be urban myths hmm

LulaPalooza Fri 01-Mar-13 17:03:06

How the actual fuck do you pronounce "Avah'Riane"?

raisah Sat 02-Mar-13 07:29:48

I heard Trixabelle shouted out across the hall at the local music group.

Shauvaun - why mutilate the spelling of a classic name?

Candice (Candy is her nn)

sashh Sat 02-Mar-13 07:59:42

oi whats wrong with Brian?

He's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy

I am from South London.

NONE of those names surprises me! I read the list thinking, yes, and? I have clearly been round here too long. <Disclaimer- despite my location, my DCs have UK names with regular spellings>

MummyPig24 Sat 02-Mar-13 10:11:36

Some of these names are truly hideous! Klamidia??!! Why didn't the registrar stop them? I like Frank though.

Ginebra Sat 02-Mar-13 16:43:53

Female is when the haven't chosen a name! we had a female at school, well she had a name but on her birth cert it said female. stupid parents couldn't pick a name and sort out the admin????

Still18atheart Sat 02-Mar-13 16:48:38

Quite like Maisie - Mae. Would have thought Acer would have been a boys name. Perhaps she was conceived with the help of a laptop.

Bringmewineandcake Sun 03-Mar-13 22:51:57

No offence taken hazel - it wasn't planned, just happened to be in the shopping centre when the photographer was there.

lula I'm guessing it's Ava then Rhianne just with unique spelling grin

FellNel Mon 04-Mar-13 03:31:25

The apostrophe seems to be the new hyphen where names are concerned. I think it's still mostly chosen by parents who have an African-Caribbean heritage but it will spread and become pretty commonplace among working class white people eventually, as they are often swayed by black popular culture.

NandH Mon 04-Mar-13 03:36:08

NEVAEH NEVAEH NEVAEH !!!! love it!!

ripsishere Mon 04-Mar-13 03:42:39

DD had a Nevaeh with a sister princess and another Angel at her last school.
At this one she has
Fanny Pong
Fanny Kok and best of all Minge someone or other.

FellNel Mon 04-Mar-13 14:28:25

How do you pronounce Nevaeh? It's very tricky.

FellNel Mon 04-Mar-13 15:33:37

Aah. I get it now. It's that old silent A again. hmm

grin

FellNel Mon 04-Mar-13 15:34:18

Or silent E, take your pick. Either way it's bollocks.

ripsishere Tue 05-Mar-13 00:28:46

Mine was Ne-vee-ahhhhhhhh or more easily, bonkers.

Bessie123 Tue 05-Mar-13 00:34:15
