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.

I have:

Katherine Morna

Aidan Paul Russell

Rachel Jessie

K is totally our own choice, no family etc connection
A - given name is ours, his 2 other names are family names (dh's gf, my dad)
R - her great Grannie died 2 weeks before she was born. Her first name was Rachel, though she was known by her middle name, Ruby. Jessie was my gran. Shes dead now, but lived to see her great granddaughter named after her!

Ruby. The stripper it seems. Luckily, she's always been the only Ruby in her class despite its popularity.
In most cases she's been the only one in her school. We have been abroad for 10/11 of her life.

Darcey - loads of people have raved about it and think they're being genuine?! I love it anyway - took DH a while to come round, but she just IS Darcey smile

I love them all, but I still wish i'd called Dd2 Eloise Olivia instead.

PrettyInDecadence Wed 21-Nov-12 22:52:56

Have been trying for dc5 for yonks, and youngest dc is now 5, so dc5 is unlikely to happen, but still have a few names under my hat in case!

And yes, I love all their names. All relatively unusual apart from Ethan although he is the only one in his year.

MoreThanJustAMum Wed 21-Nov-12 19:12:13

Natasha, Rebecca, Matilda, Isabella and Abigail

The only one I have any regrets at all about is Isabella but only because there are so many of them.
