so far have been called Rory.

3 baby boys I know, all born in the last 10 days all named Rory.

Was there a law passed that I missed...?? Lovely name, I love it, but I didn't know it had become compulsory...!

For girls it's Ellie/Ella/Emma/Emily/Amy/Amelie/Amelia, which now I get interchanged and confused. Different names that have merged as one in my head due to their popularity.

Oh Rory is our reserve boy's name confused - I'm hedging my bets because at the 20 week scan baby's legs were crossed and she said Well I can't see any boy bits!.

Babies born in my circle of friends another Jacob and a Lucy.

Lily - I know 4 of them born in the past month. A beautiful name but becoming VERY popular.

I think a law was passed requiring everyone to name their daughters Lily or Ruby. It seems that way anyway.

I know about 7/8 Rorys (various spellings) all under 5ish. I really like it but I veteoed it as I can't say my Rs and I had 3 dds grin

Here in Ireland the law says you have to name your daughter Sophie and your son Ryan. It has been amended from the 1990 law which stated that all girls must be called Emma or Sarah and all boys Conor or Jack.

Quite a popular law that in Scotland too atthewelles smile
With the substitution of Callum for Conor.
