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.

Ooooo I love Claudia!! Don't think I would have got DH to agree. sad

Probably one of many many with these names but I love them, Amelia and Joshua. Amelia was picked before it was quite so popular.

Ah you went with Ben boys. One of my favourites.

Savannah and Jessica

I (obviously) love them both but do regret Savannah slightly because it gets such a negative response.

pickled-thanks. We've booked an appointment to register him Thursday, so it's forced our hand and made us decide. wanted to get him registered before dh goes back to work.

I just hope he suits it, I'm sure he will smile

I have a Meg.

If we have another, I would go for Ben or Erin.

Every single person I have ever met called Ben has been lovely.

I really want a Ben for ds2 but I have Henry so I'm worried about hen & Ben !

I went to school with a Ben. I used to be so jealous as he could right his name quicker then me, his last name was only 4 letters as well.

noisytoys I love yours, I also love Ettienne, for a girl though, but my OH would never have had it, so we settled on the only two we could vaguely agree on Zak, and Eloise.

AlienRefluxLooksLikeSnow Wed 21-Nov-12 09:49:01

Congratulations purple!!!

Trills Wed 21-Nov-12 09:49:24

Shall I also tell you my mother's maiden name, my date of birth, my first school and the name of my first pet, just to be on the safe side?

PickledFanjoCat Wed 21-Nov-12 09:50:07

Dps brother wanted etienne for a girl but was told it was French for Stephen! grin

PickledFanjoCat Wed 21-Nov-12 09:50:43

Your bank account details and that little three digit code at the back would be nice too?

InNeedOfBrandy Wed 21-Nov-12 09:51:41

Oh I love Eloise, my best friends sister was called that. Beautiful name.

Twinklestarstwinklestars Wed 21-Nov-12 09:54:07

Thomas and Oliver, would like to call dc3 Max if a boy but I stupidly mentioned it to sil and she now says it's her favourite and she's due 5 months before me and doesn't know we're having another yet! Not sure if its a girl I like Amelie but dp doesn't.
