I had a baby doll who I was so attached to called Andrew (no idea why!) but no, neither of my DS's are called Andrew grin

All of my dolls were called Tom.

I still love that name.

My sister had a boy doll called Andrew too. Her DS isn't called this either smile

I had a thing for names beginning with an 'L'

and Brandon-Lee.

And no I didn't name my children any of these names.

As a child, Jessica. Adored it. As a teen Cookie hmm

Didn't use either.

Ceebee I too had a doll Andrew as I was convinced I'd marry an Andrew. And I did. Dolly Andrew still lives at my mums and dd plays with him there. My other dolls were Alice and Charlotte.

I always loved Matthew and David for a boy. Megan and Lily for a girl.

DH is Matthew David. Nieces are called Megan and Lily.

So that's that. I can't use them.

When I was very little my dolls were called Emma and Sandra (! I know! And this was only 20 years ago). Maybe I'll use Emma next time if I have another DD.

Ivortheengine8 Fri 17-Jun-11 21:51:44

I called my rabbits Timmy,Lucy and Benji smile

GastonTheLadybird Fri 17-Jun-11 21:51:48

I loved Brooke and Georgia, haven't used either but would use Georgina with nn Georgie if I have another DD one day.

I loved The House of Elliott when it was on TV and I was young. The sisters were called Evie (Evangeline) and Beatrice.

dd1 is called Evie and I am finally using Beatrice for dd3. smile

beanandspud Fri 17-Jun-11 21:52:48

At the risk of jumping on the bandwagon I was going to have a boy and a girl called Andrew and Leanne.

Didn't use either.

fairydusty Fri 17-Jun-11 21:54:07

I loved jamie-lee and billie for girls and jean paul for a boy - didnt use any of them but they were very me at the time!!

iskra Fri 17-Jun-11 21:54:44

I really liked Felix (which I still like) & Blue hmm

FlingonTheValiant Fri 17-Jun-11 21:55:16

Freya, Siri and Gaia

Also Raksha hmm

Haven't used them. I would still consider using Siri.

EmilyHallow Fri 17-Jun-11 21:55:31

I used to love Noah- but I was convinced it was a girl's name (I guess because it ended in an 'a' sound...?). Finally I figured out it was for boys and that's DS1's name smile
Also loved the name Catherine. DD's middle name is Caterina, the Italian version- she's named after my Italian grandmother though, only recently remembered how much I used to love the name.

Popbiscuit Fri 17-Jun-11 21:56:13

I had always planned to name my son Angus. When I met DH I discovered to my dismay that his one and only nephew was called...Angus. Grrr....

When I was eight I adored the name Jason, and gave the name to my guinea pig. I couldn't imagine having a child with that name, though.

My DC's names were all thought up during my twenties, and "filed for future use".

I can't really remember what I liked in childhood, I think I was given a doll named Melissa which I thought was terribly sophisticated and being called Ruby I apparently told my mum I'd like to have twins called Diamond and Emerald and continue to name any further children are jewels. That didn't happen!

As a teen I loved Vivienne, Star and Electra for girls and Spike for a boy. However my confession is dd1 is named after an older girl I developed a bit of a crush on around 16. She was American and stunning and pretty much the chicest person I had met at that point. So i guess I did use a name from my teens.

TeddyMcardle Fri 17-Jun-11 23:11:03

Each and every one of my dolls as a child was called skinny hmm
I loved Zooey as a teenager and still love it now after the Salinger story.

I loved the name Francesca but never used it (my boys wouldn't have thanked me!)
