Dd is Polly because we were listening to Nevermind and said 'that's her name!'

Now she will have a sibling. It's really important to us to have a name from music. Girl we are thinking Luna - last track on Smashing Pumpkins Siamese Dream. Possibly Chloe - Motherlovebone.

Our musical tastes are 90's grunge, alternative punky type stuff.

Are there any good names out there, especially for boys? Jeremy- pearl jam - isn't in the mix and is what most people suggest! Don't really want to use musicians names either, so no Kurt, Trent etc

No suggestions but love your theme and love Polly (and Nevermind).

Our DD is named after a Beatles song.

Contenders for DS were all from Belle and Sebastian songs (not your taste I guess, but we changed!). Jonathan, David and Anthony.

Actually, I love Jeremy!

Would love to hear what you choose.

Dylan not grunge enough I guess?

Great theme, really want to think of a boys names!

Find out the name of the baby boy on Nevermind?

James, as in James.

Sammy- Sammy was low.
Andy- Andy, you're a star.
Jenny- Jenny was a friend of mine.
Deborah- Disco 2000

Oh hell, I need to have another daughter to name her Deborah.

I have to!

Thought we were finished!

Violet was first choice but SIL stole!

Polly doesn't start well, I give you that, but it turns out well- she was smart enough to trick her captor into thinking she enjoyed it so he let her go. Smart cookie really!

Jessie by Paw
Bob (Cousin O.) by The Gits

Why don't you give you child a name you like rather than trying to find one like this?

Or something bloom

Black was always my fav pearl jam song
And it's funny I have an Edward, never Eddie, and I was a huge pearl jam fan.

Actually pearl is a great name
I don't like Jeremy

Cash/Jonny/June/Jackson were on my list but then I like country..

I have an unusual name, my kids have unusual (well foreign) names, I like unusual...but luna? I know a little luna, every time I hear it I think 'TIC'!! She's pre-school age but won't her peers be mean?

DH has vetoed pearl! I guess cos Polly has a story it would seem weird to call it bob just cos we like the name bob.

Mouldypineapple Sun 16-Nov-14 21:51:29
