But can't for any reason. Or you don't want to use it because it's a celebrity (or celebrity baby name).

I like harper and elton.

Hendrix (DP has put this on the list though)

Yes to Harper. I love that name.

I also really like Mallory. I don't think I'd ever use it anyway, but couldn't because of the meaning (unlucky) and the Natural Born Killers connection!

I can't think of a single one! Not unless they have something sensible like Elizabeth.

exoticfruits Mon 06-May-13 19:09:44

Can't stand Harper.

PrincessOfChina Mon 06-May-13 19:12:15

Harper here too.

Olive (Drew Barrymores DD), as im just too damn scared. Considered Liv for DD, with no longer version but got the fear grin I would love love to use Olive for DD2 and use nn Liv.

Huckleberry (Bear Grylls son) has an awesome name but I live in a sea of Jacob, Ella, Sam names so he would stand out like a sore thumb.

Tiger lilly

Marnie. I might use Marina with Marnie as NN if I ever have a girl.

tidydancer I was going to call my son Mallory after George Mallory, but someone said it was sinister and could be unlucky sad

OrangeFootedScrubfowl Mon 06-May-13 19:22:49

DS was going to be Marnie if he had been a girl.

I bet thingummybob stole the name from my thread on here.

ZolaBuddleia Mon 06-May-13 19:55:50

Which sleb has a Marnie?

TidyDancer Mon 06-May-13 20:09:30

Recall - yeah, it's Juliette Lewis's character in NBK. That doesn't bother me as much as the unlucky thing. sad

TidyDancer Mon 06-May-13 20:09:52

Zola - Lily Allen. Ethel and Marnie.

Love Harper for a boy but my husband says it would remind everyone of beck hams girl, do you all agree?

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Mon 06-May-13 20:14:15

Huckleberry - love it,couldn't use it though,even I'm not that brave.

ZolaBuddleia Mon 06-May-13 21:15:44

Ah, I love Marnie.

MrsHuxtable Mon 06-May-13 22:07:51

Not a celebrity baby name as such but I love Phillipa/Pippa and feel that it's been ruined.

Mamuss Mon 06-May-13 22:14:46

I love Harper... And I'm a Marnie and happy so many like my name smile

ZolaBuddleia Tue 07-May-13 08:34:23

Brief hijack: Mamuss, are you Marnie on your BC?

Mamuss Tue 07-May-13 19:45:14

No I'm Hermione. Marnie for short smile

SleepyCatOnTheMat Tue 07-May-13 19:58:31

Tamsin Outhwaite also has a Marnie, in addition to a Florence.

I like Marlowe, a la Sienna Miller.

SleepyCatOnTheMat Tue 07-May-13 20:03:04

P.S. Yes, I think Harper is unusable now unless it's a family name.

NTMummy059 Tue 07-May-13 20:49:42

Love Harper! Think everyone would just assume it's 'copying' the Beckhams though sad
