When we were expecting DS we had a final name for each sex that we loved. We decided we'd use the girl's name if we had a DD next.
Since then we've found out that there's a comic which is named after it's two main characters, ie "Bill and Jane", and they are DS's name with a minor spelling difference and favourite girl's name with a minor spelling difference.
So now we don't think we can use it if it turns out DC2 is a girl.
But we really love it...
Would you use it?
The comic is French, and although it's not super popular there (although it's been rereleased and there's a cartoon, so it might go up) all our French relatives and friends now know about it because of DS's name, which is also quite uncommon, so to them at least it would look really contrived and like we'd done it deliberately. Plus we'll be moving back to France in a few years and then they'll be at school with it.
We didn't choose one of the names we loved because it was from a well known pairing, which was a shame but I think if every time I introduced the DC to someone they said 'oh, you must have really liked that book/film...' it would have driven me mad!
I sympathise. I have a little Robin and I love Rosie if we ever had a second DD. But Robin and Rosie were the little twins from the Cockleshell Bay animated series in the 80s. Not sure if the memory of Robin and Rosie has now disappeared now though.
