*Hi there ladies!
I myself am a very traditional woman from a high-class background with conservative views and friends. I'm currently pregnant with twins! Having 4 children already; Simon , Harry, Emily and Edward, I'm essentially looking for a less "common" name, I don't at all like these "new-earth" names such as Jago or tigger. I am however looking for something a little... different. What do you all think about these? -
Job, (possible Joab),
Delphina II,
Fant (French pronunciation)
Nathanwell (similar to Nathaniel)
or Theadore?
I look forward to getting to know you all better soon!

GAWKER. It is a winner.

I like Samwell, Beaux and Eli, not sure about Nathanwell but love Nathaniel.

? I nearly spat my wine out laughing then. Are you real?
Have you been on here before?
If you are real, I personally think all those names are vile, especially Gawker, except Samwell, which I quite like. Your other dc names are much nicer and your twins will be jealous of their siblings names if you go down this road IMO. You did ask!
Good luck!

Are you feeling unwell?

1: there is no such thing in the English class system as 'high-class'
2: what is this English fascination with class?!
3: Aside from Nathaniel, I suggest you keep thinking. Please remember that your children will forever have to spell their names and as a child it is really horrible if you are always the one name that others trip-up over. When growing up, standing out of the crowd for something like your name, is not a good thing.

I certainly am real girls, what leads you to believe otherwise?
Many apologies for typing "High Class", I don't want to put "Upper Class" or "Super Rich" that'd just be snobby. What I do want is for my twins to have a certain quirkiness, and I believe that a slightly "out there" name will encourage this. I must say, looking back on it, Nathanwell just doesn't flow, it's terrible. Jimothy I'm not so sure on, you see I invisage his friends shortening his name to just "Jim" and that's not out there at all. Thank you for the suggestion though! Samwell is certainly in my top 5 at the moment, but I'm open for suggestions!

yes, Gawker is lovely, isn't it, my father's suggestion! Would any of you have trouble pronouncing it?

Jebidiah. Call him Jeb for short.

It's the new black.

How many generations back in your family tree do you find these names?

dinkystinky Wed 22-Jun-11 21:36:56

Have you thought of This and That as names or just binning the christian names entirely? Terribly upper class only to be known by surnames only dont you know

I'm afraid I have slightly dyslexic tendencies and I immediately read it as Wanker. Sorry.

And I agree that you don't sound for real.

Thank you, I am quite literally crying with laughter! But as that couldn;t make my typing worse than normal....

Gawker??? I though UC, sorry HC people liked to call a spade a tool used by a serf spae. What about Stalker or PeepinTom?

Indeed PeepinTom would fit wonderfully with Nathanwell, Fant and Wichard.

Adair Wed 22-Jun-11 21:38:31

Well, now you see, that makes Jimothy even more perfect! Jim is great for when your little Jimothy wants to go and live in a squat in Dalston, innit...
