Great name for a baby??

My ds suggested it.

On the other hand, I do rather like River (as in River Song from Dr Who) for our pending dd.

It would be a small nod to my ds as well, which I hope he would appreciate!

Yes River is nice.

Ds2 suggested Prince Michael for ours. hmm

TittyWhistles Tue 02-Oct-12 12:35:13

Oops..... Ayes or nays for River then?

I like River - an aye from me!

DinosaursOnASpaceship Tue 02-Oct-12 12:37:01

I like River too.

TittyWhistles Tue 02-Oct-12 12:37:15

Haha Ed, Yep, it was either Dr Who or "Tranna-Sauce-Rex"!

I would think of River as a boy - River Pheonix.

Quite cute. I might use it as a middle name, but not personally my style for a first name. Way better than some of the other 'nature' names out there though.

Melody and Amy are nice names too.
Not Rorry!

My DS wanted my youngest to be "Digger" if a boy. Good thing she was a girl.

Much better than Adric, too. grin

Hey. I like Rory. DD2 could have been a Rory.

I like Rory too!

<really hopes no one has an Adric blush>

If DC3 is a boy he'll be Rory.

DH suggested this after I vetoed Stormageddon.

I like both River and Rory. Nice names, and characters I find charming.

And hey, I grew up with a Doctor Who name and I'm only mostly insane ... ;)

I don't like River very much as a name, and I find River Song intensely annoying. Of the companions I'd go with Sarah Jane or possibly Romana I think.

My Martha is kindof after Martha Jones!

Dr Who is a lovely name, btw...

Yamyoid Wed 03-Oct-12 06:37:31

grin Dr Who!

Dh suggested Dr Octopus or Mendosa for DC1.

I did consider River for DC2 cos I like Rivers Pheonix and Song. But I chickened out.

TittyWhistles Wed 03-Oct-12 08:53:25

Your DH Suggested Dr Octopus, Yamyoid ?? Wow, My OH's suggestions were incredibly dull, which is why I turned to DS for a name! OH doesn't think it's great though, so it might end up as a middle name anyway.

nooka I quite like River Song, I remember her being Moll Flanders which was a similar 'eyebrow archy' character (and my girl crush at the time <sigh>)

LadyMargolotta Wed 03-Oct-12 08:55:26

Idris for a girl?

What about Torchwood for inspiration - Gwen, Anwen, Ianto, Jack?

Gallifrey? quite obscure Dr who link, and work for both sexes...
