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.

A girl called Aurora. blush No boys' names as was convinced i'd have one girl. He's now a boisterous 18 mo.

Phoenix, for a girl. I was genuinely upset when Scary Spice 'stole' my baby name.

I wouldn't choose them now, but they're not too bad.

My mum nicked Daniel grin

Jude for a boy, which my then best friend nicked a few years later. Linnet for a girl (from The Children of Green Knowe) which I still think is lovely but the constant "No, not Lynette" would be too irritating.

Cammay with emphasise on may at the end for a girl.

And I liked Lochie for a boy. Or when I was about 10 I think it would have been Jordan from NKOTB

Not in any way similar to my two now smile

I liked Emily and James.

Mercedes for a girl

Lots of boys names usually after famous people I fancied! ( so going to give my age away now)
Corey (haim)
Johnnie (depp)
Donnie or Jordan (nkotb)
Marky (wahlberg )

I HAVE 2 boys and 2 girls and none of those names.

Phaedra for a girl, and Artemis for a boy! I was a cringeingly pretentious teenager blush

I looked casey and Stella. Had no boys names. Just as we'll hagrin

Richenda. I was bit of a Chalet School fan and I loved this name as soon as I read it. I used to use it for characters in my creative writing and primary school and many a teacher would identify themselves to me as fellow fans.

Hawaii, Arizona and Nevada!!

Also like Nicolette after Nicolette Sheridan. I thought she was the most beautiful woman in the world.

winkle2 Sat 24-Nov-12 15:42:10

Hmm just read Arizona is an actual baby name! I still like it blush

MadStaringEyes Sat 24-Nov-12 16:14:29

Colin, I still love it, but it rhymes with dp's surname.
Hunter. I still quite like.

Both for boys.

Just seen this thread and it made me smile. Baring in mind that I was a bit of a hippie (weirdo), the names I liked were

Jemrad Sahara

California (Iin my defence this was before it was more mainstream to name children after places).

Paris (Sebastian Back influence there).

Gypsophila (initially spelt wrong and my spell check brought up a different word shock.

Thank goodness I didn't get pregnant when I was 15. I would like to add that my children have very different names.

Fifi2406 Sat 24-Nov-12 17:42:09

I was adamant I would call my son Cuthbert!

Really didn't use it!

Stellarella123 Sat 24-Nov-12 17:49:56

I liked jade, Jordan and Kelly-Marie! My taste has definetly changed since then!

Binkybix Sat 24-Nov-12 17:55:31

I liked Maria and Scarlett. They're ok, but wouldn't choose them now. I also liked The Hulk, like in friends!!

TidyDancer Sat 24-Nov-12 17:58:07

Oh I had a plan and everything.

I was going to have a baby girl and call her Talia.

Then I would have triplets (ouch!) and call them Liberty, Brandon and Skye.

I had zero taste. Thank God I didn't get knocked up at 15!

I have a DS and a DD now and they have very different names!

Loreèal (cause she's worth it...)


GoldPlatedNineDoors Sat 24-Nov-12 18:01:08

Haha OP I love Fox grin

Mine were pretty simple - Chloe and Matthew. Wouldn't use them now but equally if a dc had come along at 15 I wouldn't regret their names now

cazboldy Sat 24-Nov-12 18:09:02

I had a baby when i was 15!

I wanted to call him Seamus

My now dh and my own dad convinced me that if I liked the irish form of James then that was what we should call him.

He (now 16) is glad I didn't call him Seamus grin

crazycatlady82 Sun 25-Nov-12 01:34:49

I had Anna for a girl and Ethan for a boy. They could have been worse actually...

Haha I remember doing this when I was 15!



Oh dear! None of them are any longer on my list!
