I'd love to know,rather bored,what Mumsnetters have called their dcs if you love their names and are willing to share.

It'd be appreciated if this could be a criticism free thread. I'm pretty harsh with names myself at time,but this isn't the thread for it.

Charles and Jack

Surprisingly not as popular as I thought. There isn't another Jack or Charles/Charlie in the entire school.

Tianna and Tayon I expect that's quite chavvy to MN standards but I love them.

i'd love to share as i do love my dc's names but it would absoloutely out me to anyone who knows me so i wont.

but in response to your comment about people not being harsh. i think names are such a very personal thing that it really doesn't matter if someone else thinks they're awful. it really is so personal.

And just because we may not like certain names doesn't mean we don't like the people with those names (and vice versa smile). Also, associations change...

I'd love to share but afraid I'll lose my anonymity ...

Jayden shock Kyle (A K name, the horror!) Caleb, Reuben and Barnaby (Barney)

That will complete out me to anyone who's ever met me, but I love all their names, even though it means my oldest can never be a high court judge. (I make sure to remind him regularly that he can't so he doesn't get ideas above his chavvy status. wink )

Joseph and Eve

Christopher, Shannah, Sheelan and Linah. I love all their names and they all really suit their names. I do sometimes wonder if Christopher is a bit boring though.

Orla and Cameron. I love their names smile
