In a quandary over names since finding out we're having a boy! Haven't got a single one we love - would love your help and opinions!I tried out Oscar a couple of hours ago and even since then have gone off it a bit - what about Aiden? Any associations with this name? Is it popular? Is it awful???
I am still liking it almost an hour on...doing well! Have had a blank mind since the scan - really pleased with a boy apart from the name issue and the fact that some boy toys are hideous - Ben10, what is that about?? But then couldn't face a sea of pink girly plastic princess stuff either!
Dare I even ask this...is Aiden even remotely...chavvy...? (ok so I'm discovering I'm a name snob)
I live in Ireland and I'd imagine it has very different associations here than in the UK. Here I would think of it as a very '70's name, I know a lot of 30somethings called it, wouldn't be in any way trendy and certainly not chavvy.
Tuschinski - talk to me about how it would be thought of in Ireland please? My mum is against this name and her opinions on names will be based on similar thoughts - and we all know that Mum being anti a name can be a real deal breaker!
In Ireland (well IMHO anyway) I would consider it be to be just a bog standard name, nothing at all wrong with it, quite nice actually, but a bit ordinary IYKWIM, like Paul or Mark or David, a name your brother has. It's the name of the accountant where I work which doesn't help it though I do think it is coming back into fashion a little due to SATC.
