This is kind of along the lines of the unusual names thread, so sorry if it's too similar, but I was surprised to search for a name on mumsnet and found it had not been mentioned on any Baby Names thread. I thought most probably had at least once! So, I am going to correct this now - the name is Hyla (boy). Anyone else have one?

Have never come across that name before. Where's it from?

Hill-a or High-la?

I love Bruno, no one ever mentions Bruno.

Luke is great I think. Haven't seen it mentioned.

I also love Nicole

Luke is mentioned quite a lot on threads by Star Wars fans or those who decide to breed from them. On the grounds that it's the acceptable alternative to what the fan is coming up with.

I've never heard of the name Hyla and don't really take to it (sorry).

Never heard of Hyla either.

I know a baby Dennis but I don't think the name has been mentioned recently on here (positively or negatively).

Lynette is another that springs to mind.

Oh and I love Luke and Nicole!

I never see Samantha suggested but I don't think many young children nowadays have that name. Probably because people will insist on shortening it to Sam, which is a BOYS name confused

It's ok, you don't have to like Hyla! It is pronounced High-la and I think is Scottish, but not sure. I have only come across it once, but I thought it would have had a mention on here before!

Elaine. Pretty name, never mentioned.

Rhubarbgarden Tue 04-Feb-14 20:07:21

I know a Hyla in his seventies.

Daphne. You never hear that name. It's pretty, and it's strange it hasn't made a come back with all the Graces, Elsies and flower names.

Rhubarbgarden Tue 04-Feb-14 20:18:27

grin at Goofy!

Stupid phone, that's

ToffeeJungle Wed 05-Feb-14 13:06:27

Stupid phone, that was meant to be pronounced

ToffeeJungle Wed 05-Feb-14 13:08:38

Argh! I was trying to say Justine - not seen it on baby name threads despite MN co-founder being one...

Though I guess you don't often see Justice either?!

ScrambledSmegs Wed 05-Feb-14 13:12:40

Justice grin

That reminds me of Eagle vs Shark. "Tell him Justice is coming for him" man other end of phone -"Ok Justin".

YoHoHoandabottleofWine Wed 05-Feb-14 21:13:17

Matthew. No one ever mentions Matthew.

DaddysBigTummy Wed 05-Feb-14 21:24:17

One of my DD's is called Nicole, she is 6. The only other one I know is 14. In most recent Mother and Baby magazine one of the baby models is called Butterfly, never heard that one before!

AllDirections Wed 05-Feb-14 21:28:59

I met a little Justice once

vitaminC Wed 05-Feb-14 21:31:13

Hedley. It was my great grandad's name and I think it's a great name. I have girls, but no boys, so never got to use it, but I hope somebody does, eventually grin

AuntieStella Wed 05-Feb-14 21:34:20

Daphne is Forces slang for useless female upperclass twit (counterpart of Rupert). That'll probably make it unlikely there would be much of a revival.

Christine. You never hear Christine anymore.
