to wish I could have another dd so I could call her

Watched Alex Polizzi's Secret Italy last night and her mother, Olga, was on it. I just think it's a beautiful name and wish we had given it to one of our 2 dds blush (though I do like their names and they couldn't be anything else now!).

Are there any names which you wish you had chosen?

Neither DP nor I are massively keen on having kids but if we got drunk and the condom broke we ever did I would insist on calling a boy Jarvis. Jarvis Cocker is a total hero. Also the name is brilliant.

Olga makes me think of the stories about the guinea pig Olga da Polga.

If I had had another boy after DS would have called him Joshua.

Oh yes I had forgotten about Olga da Polga! That possibly changes things a bit grin.

Jarvis and Joshua both nice names! My son also has a name beginning with a J, it's a nice sound!

Joshua is nice but so so prevalent now. I'm not sure about Olga - has a hard sound to it IMO.

I love Vada, but felt I couldn't use it because of the obvious Star wars crap.

I also liked Elsbeth with Elsa or Elsie for short, but Frozen shat on that a bit.

I always feel sorry for people who come up with a nice name which then gets Disney'd or similar six months later. Or even worse - there must have been little Damian's mums and dads way back who were freely cursing The Omen.
