personalised bottles
I just picked up my DDs name in Ireland and also mine which I was really surprised about !

puds11isNAUGHTYnotNAICE Wed 08-May-13 06:41:47

Niether my name or DD's name is on. Oh well, I'm used to it.

Wishfulmakeupping Wed 08-May-13 06:47:44

Does anyone know the Uk list?

feetheart Wed 08-May-13 06:56:14

Wow, both DC's names are on there which is a first (DD's on second 50 list).
Shame they don't like Coke smile

KenDoddsDadsDog Wed 08-May-13 07:24:43

soyo they have lots of Celtic / Gaelic names on the NI / ROI ones - I got Eóin, Cormac , Orla, Caoimhe on my hunt yesterday for the family. My name was even there.

no.not listed

heronsfly Wed 08-May-13 07:36:31

Out of me, dh and 6dcs only 2 are there.

TheOneWithTheHair Wed 08-May-13 07:37:47

None but a couple of abbreviations we don't use.

KenDoddsDadsDog Wed 08-May-13 07:41:16

That list is the New Zealand one .

JulesJules Wed 08-May-13 07:43:25

DH's is, mine isn't, DDs aren't either.

One of the cats is (Sam) but not the other one (Buffy)

The names that will be on there will obviously be the top 50 or so most popular names in New Zealand. Coke want to make money from this so obviously they'll only print the most common names.

None of our names are on there but we chose names that were not overused/common so I hope they're not on there smile.

monica77798 Wed 08-May-13 12:55:45

I am confused, is this in the UK, or just Australia and New Zealand? All the promotional stuff about it seems to be from down under

Secondme Wed 08-May-13 16:46:32

1/4 but he has a really common name. 2 have abbreviations that we never use and other one not at all, but not a chance.

Dillydollydaydream Wed 08-May-13 16:51:39

My name is on there but dh and the 3ds aren't.

KenDoddsDadsDog Wed 08-May-13 16:58:47

It's UK and Ireland this summer. One of my mates just got a Jemima!

JackieTheFart Wed 08-May-13 17:02:40

Mine, all 4 DSs are on that NZ list. DH isn't.

I really want one!!

KenDoddsDadsDog Wed 08-May-13 17:28:18

They are everywhere !

MajorDivvy Wed 08-May-13 17:31:56

Abbreviations only in this house!
Mind you, I can only ever find abbreviations of my name - the joys of hyphens! Lol

MadameJosephine Wed 08-May-13 20:50:03

DS's name is there in full and shorter versions of mine, DP's and DD's

MiaowTheCat Wed 08-May-13 21:06:13

No one got the UK list up yet?

Depending on if they're doing the top 150 RECENT names, or names of current population - I'd expect hubby to be in the overall population list (slightly dated name but common at certain times)... if it's names of recent births - DD1 will probably be on there somewhere.

DD2 and myself - no chance... if my name did make it on it would be the more common spelling variant anyway.

KenDoddsDadsDog Wed 08-May-13 21:59:14

The website is not up yet, it can't be top names though and could be regional. Have got my whole team at work obsessed today - we got a Brian , Rob , Steven and Stephen in Asda!

UK List

QueenofDreams Sun 12-May-13 09:13:59

Ok, on both those lists DP's name is there in abbreviated form. DS DD and I are not there. Mind you I never get anything with my name on because it's a rarely used Dutch name grin

GwendolineMaryLacey Sun 12-May-13 09:15:56

Me, DH and DD2 are on. Poor DD1 will never get a named anything even though her name is pretty normal

Tortoise Sun 12-May-13 09:16:04

Only DS1 is on the UK list. Not surprised though really.
