Ok so I entered my daughter into the local newspapers best baby competition. I've bought the newspaper today and in my daughter's category there are the following:

Acer (girl)
Sasha-Belle (actually love this but still..)
Jäger (girl)
Tyla-Jay (girl)
Harijak (as in Harry Jack, not a mixed heritage baby from photo/surname)
Teejai (boy)
Ocean (girl)
And that old favourite....Nevaeh : )

grin that feels better!

I heard Trixabelle shouted out across the hall at the local music group.

Shauvaun - why mutilate the spelling of a classic name?

Candice (Candy is her nn)

I am from South London.

NONE of those names surprises me! I read the list thinking, yes, and? I have clearly been round here too long. <Disclaimer- despite my location, my DCs have UK names with regular spellings>

Some of these names are truly hideous! Klamidia??!! Why didn't the registrar stop them? I like Frank though.

Female is when the haven't chosen a name! we had a female at school, well she had a name but on her birth cert it said female. stupid parents couldn't pick a name and sort out the admin????

Quite like Maisie - Mae. Would have thought Acer would have been a boys name. Perhaps she was conceived with the help of a laptop.

No offence taken hazel - it wasn't planned, just happened to be in the shopping centre when the photographer was there.

lula I'm guessing it's Ava then Rhianne just with unique spelling grin

The apostrophe seems to be the new hyphen where names are concerned. I think it's still mostly chosen by parents who have an African-Caribbean heritage but it will spread and become pretty commonplace among working class white people eventually, as they are often swayed by black popular culture.

DD had a Nevaeh with a sister princess and another Angel at her last school.
At this one she has
Fanny Pong
Fanny Kok and best of all Minge someone or other.

How do you pronounce Nevaeh? It's very tricky.

Aah. I get it now. It's that old silent A again. hmm


FellNel Mon 04-Mar-13 15:34:18

Or silent E, take your pick. Either way it's bollocks.
