Have just dug a list of possible names for my future DC I made when I was 15 or 16. It contains such gems as:


Tea (with a dash over the 'e' i.e. pronounced Taya)



Feel free to point and laugh, and to share the mental names you once thought you might call your DC.

Sorry, dug out.

I distinctly remember a conversation with our group of girls when we were 14 about this and we wrote them down on postcards!

(Mine were Leannah and Maia, and Elliott and Zane).

At 15, a boy would have been jon richard in honour of my love of Bon Jovi blush. Didn't have any girls names.

I wanted boy/girl twins called maxi and flo until someone pointed out it sounded like a tampon

For girls: Harriet, Carrie and Alexandra.

For boys: I was determined I would have a Willow, Will for short...

I desperately wanted a daughter called Toni. I thought it was the height of sophisticated cool. Further down the list were Lacey and Shannon. I'd write them down in a book as and when I was inspired so as not to forget them in later life hmm

Kieran Matthew
Mark Robert
Ruby Edith

I still quite like Kieran and would have used Ruby had it not got so popular. Edith is DD's middle name.

I'm still a massive Take That fan but probably won't be naming any children after them...

DS and DD have very different names.

My DS has a currently very popular old Testament name that I have loved since I was a teenager. If I had had him when I was in my early 20s I would have been cutting edge. As it is, I had him in my mid 30s and he is just one of millions with the same name!

Channing.....think it might have been for a girl. Too much Dynasty, Knots Landing nonsense in my head.

AlwaysHoldingOnToStarbug Fri 23-Nov-12 22:07:01

I had a list of what my 6 children would be called. Unfortunately it got thrown away and I've forgotten most of them.

Ashley was a boy.
Charlotta for a girl. I didn't want Charlotte because she was a nasty bully in my class, so changed it slightly!

SandStorm Fri 23-Nov-12 22:07:01

At that age, my first born daughter was going to be Saffron. And that was before AbFab.

WhatWouldVegansDo Fri 23-Nov-12 22:08:57

The name I liked for a boy when I was 15 is the name I gave to my son when I had him about 20 years later!

sausagesandwich34 Fri 23-Nov-12 22:09:42

my girl was going to be Bronwyn or Tiegan

boy was going to be Finn

(not that I was into aussie soaps or anything)

LadyLetch Fri 23-Nov-12 22:09:53

I remember loving Georgiana at about 15. I had read it in a book somewhere... Can't think where now. My daughters have different names grin.

Kevin and Abi

blush Oh, the shame...

sweetkitty Fri 23-Nov-12 22:14:45

Oh I had some belters

Kayleigh (like the Marillion song)

Didn't have any boys names, when I was growing up all dolls we're girls I didn't want any boy babies. I know have one DS and three DDs

UnnamedFemaleProtagonist Fri 23-Nov-12 22:15:32

Jai for a girl or a boy. blush

ArthurandGeorge Fri 23-Nov-12 22:18:32

Christiana Jayne


I went for some rather less flowery names!

BloodyStupidJohnson Fri 23-Nov-12 22:21:01
