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...!

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

Wallace Sun 13-Jan-13 17:54:32

This year I know of a Logan and Emelia

I know loads of Ruairidhs but the youngest is 6.

I've known three Gretas in recent months which seems unusual!

LadyMetroland Sun 13-Jan-13 17:43:49

Boys in last couple of weeks


Don't know any Rorys ...yet!

forgetmenots Sun 13-Jan-13 17:09:58

Three boys in the last six months all called Lachlan/Lauchlan. And two Ruairidhs, I'm in Scotland too! (Though they say Jack is the most popular name, I've never met a small one!)

thankyou! Sorry.

RooneyMara Sun 13-Jan-13 10:26:11

I am spelling it wrong.

MrGeresHamster Sun 13-Jan-13 10:25:22

Round here it seems to be two syllable names beginning with E...

RooneyMara Sun 13-Jan-13 10:24:40

Doesn't that literally mean 'indifferent'? Or am I spelling it wrong?

LegoAcupuncture Sun 13-Jan-13 10:22:48

I Only know one born this year so far, called Blaise.

RooneyMara Sun 13-Jan-13 10:21:20

I think it's been the year of the ee sound for about 10 years now

I like Maggie though

GoldPlatedNineDoors Sun 13-Jan-13 10:19:48

I don't know any boys born in 2013 yet, but three girls - Holly, Amy and Ellie. Another due next.month pre-named.Maggie.

Its the year.of the "ee" sound round here

RustyBear Sun 13-Jan-13 10:16:20

Arthur and Rory - It's the Doctor Who effect! And maybe a bit of Merlin too...

RooneyMara Sun 13-Jan-13 10:13:34

Boris is GREAT!

RooneyMara Sun 13-Jan-13 10:13:05

I give you a Gustav and a Lowell smile

echidnakid Sun 13-Jan-13 10:08:09

I'm just relieved to read it's not my fave boys' name the OP is talking about! Rory is quite uncommon here (Australia) but two of the three boys born this this year that I know have been Max.

AnathemaDevice Sun 13-Jan-13 09:38:14

I hope it isn't becoming too popular, DC3 is due in 2 weeks and will be Rory if it's a boy.

I only know of one baby born this year so far. He's called Boris. Can't see that exploding in popularity any time soon.

SamsGoldilocks Sun 13-Jan-13 07:18:52

Just a Miles, but I had a Rory 4 years ago smile
