wasnt john merrick the elephant man?

Yes, he was, but it is lovely as a first name.

Meredith is growing on me ..I think due to my unhealthy obsession with Grey's Anatomygrin

MelinaM - I know what you mean! I am down to the last few eps of season 5 and beginning to panic.. And have been mulling over the virtues of Bailey and Cassie grin
I like the name Meredith but don't like the nn Merry (or 'Death'!) so might rule that one out for now..

I love Meredith and Rhiannon. Don't think I'll get the chance to use either.

The elephant man was named Joseph Merrick.

Lately, I have met a Conrad and an Ember, both of which struck me as notable.

CarterGirl I've been watching the re-runs on Really for the past few weeks ..can't tear myself away!!! I'm going to have to purchase the boxset!

I rather like Bailey, Meredith is seriously becoming a favourite! ...I'm afraid Derek will remain a no go thoughgrin The name not McDreamy of coursewink

Cecilia is lovely, very pretty.

I met a little Astrid and thought that was lovely.

Don't like the boys' names at all but love both girls' names.

i love Cecilia/Cecelia. can't use it with DPs stupid surname <goes of in a huff as it would be lovely with my maiden name>

Joseph Merrick
Meredith Kercher

So.... no.

my sister is Meredith - lost of people can't seem to pronounce it or try desperately to shorten as they are too lazy to say the full name!!! She calls herself M like in James Bond as she can't stand it when people get it wrong or shorten it (she's definately not a Merry!)

Cecilia is really pretty. I met a Delilah recently too, gorgeous.

Love Angus!

Lonnie Sat 08-Oct-11 17:02:26

if we are going down the route of connections then when I see Cecilia I just hear " Cecilia your breaking my heart.." I love the name though also like Meredith

and adore Conrad (my son)

nickelbabe Sat 08-Oct-11 17:04:48

mumofbumblebea - that is exactly the reason why you shouldn't take your DH's surname (or allow your children to!)

Lonnie Sat 08-Oct-11 17:18:10

nickelbabe I dont know my maiden name is a rude word in English grin

DigOfTheStump Sat 08-Oct-11 20:17:21

I heard Merle today,too, which is lovely.
