ok so we dont want traditional names, as oH is a 'daniel' and is fed up of everyone having the same name... I am a kristy (not kirsty) and loved having a slightly different name!

So far we like Girls- Jasmine, sofia, brooke, madison
Boys- Harley, Brandon

Not too out there,

Any suggestions?

I love Harley. Just don't spell it 'Harlee' like someone I met once shudder

Ohh, and I know a few Brandons, what about Brendan instead? I like Martha for girls.

my name is Lois which is quite unusual still, I always tired of having to spell/pronounce it for people but now I quite like it! My daughters are Ruby and Evie, however if i were to have had boys I loved the names Chase, Rollo, Laurence and Wolfie!!

A few people I know have added 'bear' as middle name for their little boys, ie, Will(iam) Bear, Sam Bear, Alfie Bear! I think I kinda like it, it definitely suits some of them!! And Bear Grylls is pretty awesome!!

Theres a little boy in my sisters class called 'Vein' - not too sure about that....!!!

I love the name Brandon being the massive Killers fan that I am! Brandon Flowers ( the lead singer ) has a son called 'Gunner' - again, not too sure about that one.......!!!!

What about Levi? Do you think that might get teased because of Levi jeans?

MerryMarigold Wed 20-Jul-11 18:27:07

I like Harvey in that sort of vein

(Vein is a hideous name!)

Beck is a cool name

There's a million and one Jasmines in ds's class (ok, Jasmine x 2 and Yasmin)

Jacintha?

I almost had Kristin for my dd. Also Meredith.

I think Harley, Madison, Brandon are all quite cool and I could imagine Gwen Steffani picking them, but maybe a bit chavvy for that reason. Sorry.

Sofia/Sophia very popular so if you are trying to avoid loads in the same class I would avoid that. Your other names are, um, in the other category you are trying to avoid. Sorry.

NerfHerder Wed 20-Jul-11 20:37:09

Sorry, I agree with rhubarbgarden, and I like unusual names!

What about
Harvey
Marcus
Dashiell
Elliott
Evan
Kester

Louisa
Aurelia
Magenta
Clem(mie)
Nancy
Audrey
Della
Zelda
