I got quite excited then, until I saw my chosen name for expected DD in the 19-36 month category wink

TryLikingClarity Mon 10-Jan-11 19:01:50

DS's name isn't there, which I find strange as it's a very common name. Maybe it's too plain to be fashionable.

I am quite shocked to see so many hypenated names, as I do not know of any myself. I know children in DD's school, DS1 goes to another school, DS2 goes to a cm and I work in a third school.

I look forward to labelling the books in a few years time...

I wonder if Peyton- Brooke is a boy or a girl?

onimolap Mon 10-Jan-11 21:57:04

Sorry, I've slung the newspaper now and can't check the photo for you. My guess is female.

SarahScot Mon 10-Jan-11 21:57:25

Yvee = Evie ???

onimolap Mon 10-Jan-11 21:59:54

Dunno - I thought it was Ivy.

cece Mon 10-Jan-11 22:03:20

Really I thought a boy!

Peyton sounds more masculine and Brooke is unisex...

Isn't Peyton the name of the deranged nanny in 'Hand That Rocks The Cradle'? shudder

In that case, it's I think the spelling of Brooke is more feminine.

WorzselMummage Tue 11-Jan-11 01:45:25

How the hell would you pronounce Dzejdyn !?

WorzselMummage Tue 11-Jan-11 01:46:30

And BungKoy!

Popbiscuit Tue 11-Jan-11 02:02:20

Decidiuousblonde-YES it is. I always get the chills when I hear that name...

ShowOfHands Tue 11-Jan-11 09:59:29

Bungkoy is a name afaik (Philippines maybe) but Dzejdyn, I have no idea.

secondcoming you took the words right out of my mouth.shock

A what's with Dolcie? That's the second time in a week I've seen it spelt with an O. The name is Dulcie. angry

Waaaay too many hyphens followed by Lees/Mays in there, and way too many crapola spellings going on. What is the world coming to? confused

Just another example of Broken Britain.

Oh Lord Peyton-Brooke, as in the 2 main characters from One Tree Hill blush

Codie-Leah..... wow

FellatioNelson Tue 11-Jan-11 11:19:08

Huntleigh just reminds me of Ian Huntley. Who would do that to a child?

FellatioNelson Tue 11-Jan-11 11:20:37

To be fair, Bonny Baby competitions in local newspapers tend to attract a very specific demographic...

Strictly Tue 11-Jan-11 11:21:55

I really want to know why people add a 'Lee' onto a girls name...Kelsi-Lee shock
