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.

The only one i dont like now is lopez. Having said this, my DD doesn't have any of the girls names on the list.

I remember being convinced of having six children and constantly rearranging the name order to find the one that i felt just 'rolled off the tongue'....
Final list ? (imprinted forever):
Keiran, Connor, Megan, Mya, Dylan and Chloe.

Esme. I heard the name Esme and knew if I ever had a daughter that would be her name - and it is, DD1 is indeed Esme smile

I also loved Persephonie and for a boy Tristan smile

Star (for boy or girl)

Inspired by the Lost Boys blush

I wanted twin boys called Taliesin and Tamburlaine. Yikes.

Haha this thread is brilliant!

My mum was pregnant when I was 15, and the names I suggested to her were:

Girls - Pagan (!), Amber, Heaven (Mum should NOT have let me read Virginia Andrews!)

Boys - Logan (V. Andrews again), Trent, Drake

I wanted Jason for a boy and Jasmine for a girl. I don't think mine were bad actually!

Priceless all! Particularly love Rio, OP. I desperately wanted a daughter called Roxy - then found out it was the name of Roger Taylor's dog so it didn't make the cut!

Brit. I wasn't having a boy.

MarchelineWhatNot Wed 05-Dec-12 09:35:22

Mine would have been: Victoria, Eloise & Simon.

Yes, but I was younger than 14. They were Lola and Kylie!

maxcliffordslovechild Wed 05-Dec-12 09:58:46

Jancis for a girl, i wasn't having any boys I was firm on that!
DD has another much more traditional name now phew grin

tittytittyhanghang Wed 05-Dec-12 10:24:53

i was going to have twin girls called melody and harmony. Have failed on both accounts, no twins and no girls neither!

If memory serves that would be all for one child. I had a boys name that was about six names long but other than Joshua Jake I can't remember it all.

SmethwickBelle Wed 05-Dec-12 10:43:39

How spooky is that!! Snap!

mammyemcbe Wed 05-Dec-12 10:59:40

Mine were Blaise and Thea, from a teen vampire novelsmile and for a boy Bailey (party of five). 6 dcs later none of these names were used but I still kinda like themshock

JustinCaseyHowles Wed 05-Dec-12 11:01:38

Chuck, Chip and Cookie -joke! Very 50s American! Think I quite liked Haricot for a boy too!

I was obsessed with the name Lia when I was younger. I actually met someone with that name quite recently and I had the weirdest feeling until later on that night I finally clicked and thought 'that is such a cool name' like a 10 year old again grin
I also loved Archie but DP said years ago that it was only fit for a dog name so ill have to keep that in mind when we get pets wink

I loved the name Oliver, which was quite unusual then, my eldest son is called Oliver but it seems a very popular name now. Choices for girls were Elouise - like the Damned song and Emily. Never had girls but would not choose Elouise now

Gabrielle & Giselle, I didn't consider I might have boys

doyouwantfrieswiththat Wed 05-Dec-12 12:03:21

Pagan was a name from 'Lace' wasn't it Golden ?

MrsHBaby3 Wed 05-Dec-12 12:04:07

I thought Benjamin Blue had a nice ring to it, LOL
For girls I liked either Skye or Phoebe. Not sure where any of those ideas came from.
I was also adamant I wanted 6kids. Currently on baby 3 and probably the last (might push to 4 Max!)

I also liked Summer, Red, Autumn and then Phoenix if a boy. Didn't realise I was a hippy until now! Might have been reaction to going to very posh girls school so all the pretty names had associations??
Ah well, my kids have none of those names or even similar, LOL
