A friend of a friend has just has a flossy-belle shock

:-o at Flossy-Belle!
I have heard a lot of something - Belles lately.
Not a fan of double first names personally.

Eskino I thought I was the only one to think hmm about Bisty. The middle name is worse - don't want to write it out fully but it's a colour spelled wrong. Think Beyonce.

I also love Mila, though my DH fancies the pants off Mila Kunis so not sure we'd ever use it! grin

SlimFitWellies Thu 25-Apr-13 15:05:16

A friend of mine swears that at her DC's school there is a Liberty-Belle.

Love the name Liberty though... but safe to say any Americans might get the giggles.

There's a "liberty-belle" in 'Juno'...Juno's little sister.

Surely no-ones actually used in in real life?!

SlimFitWellies Thu 25-Apr-13 15:12:49

No way? Never watched it.

My DFriend swears it. I can't confirm as she lives in Jo-burg. I never know whether to believe it, like really??

Chottie - isnt China-White a bar or restaurant with celebrity connections?
Most of the names are lovely but some are a bit tacky like Elektra (porn star/glamour nodel name!) but each to their own.

The parents who named their dd Bitsy, what on earth where they thinking of? That awful Timmy Mallet song comes to my mind.

I quite like most of them. Trend seems to be 'vintage' names coming back into fashion, but some sound like they're named after popular characters. Professor Layton? Dax from Star Trek?

MortifiedAdams - Bram was the second most popular boys name in the Netherlands last year. Sounds weird to our ear, and not a fav of mine, but pretty mainstream in other countries.

I only know two babies born this year! Finlay and Esme ( Es-meeee).

I am quite surprised to see DD's name (Francesca) on this thread, Most people who are honest with me dislike this name so I'm pleased to see some other people must like it!

This thread is making me compose a list of possible baby names and I don't even want another baby.....or do I??grin

I'm slightly out of the newborn zone, so the only name I can offer up is Rebecca, which I think is beautifully classic.

Neither DS's (4), nor DD's (2) names have been mentioned, but my own name is riddled throughout the thread.

I work with babies and children

definite trends currently are 'Old Names'
Still seeing a lot of cutesy frilly girls names though the double barelled first names seem to be dying off.
girls names also going towards the 'elderly lady names'
Doris,Nora,Nancy,Flora, Enid,Elsie,Agnes.

Assajjventress Mon 20-May-13 13:01:47

Medie what are you noticing amongst boys name?

meddie Mon 20-May-13 13:19:26

It seems to fall into a few camps.
I hate to say this but there is a definite difference depending on background and social class.
So more working class are either going for the diminutive form
Alfie,Archie,Freddie,Frankie,
Professionals seem to use the traditional versions, so more Arthur,George,Alfred,Stanley, Hugo (this is gaining popularity)
Then there is a definite group who use J& K names and made up spellings
Kale,Jaygo, Jaxxon, Jaxx, kayden/kaiden,kai,kae
