Cassandra Mortmain.

DH is really keen on Bleaney. I told him to put down the Whitsun Weddings sharpish!

Just love Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes.

Was always disappointed by how plain "Cathy" is for such a character in Wuthering Heights.

Atticus. I wanted to call my second born this but didn't like any possible shortenings. Also, she's a she.

My OH suggested Lupin for our boy from Diary of a Nobody. He'd better be joking!

AtomicDog Wed 13-May-15 01:21:36

shock I was just going to post Lupin from Diary of a Nobody! Weird...

Alizarin Belvedon

Uriah (Heep). Hester (Prynne). Ebenezer (Scrooge).

(Magenta, the last time I taught Larkin, the entire seminar looked suicidal after 'Mr Bleaney'. Though having a name that's a homonym for a type of pancake might make people salivate about sour cream all the time, anyway...)

GreatAuntDinah Wed 13-May-15 18:46:43

I reeeeaaaalllly wanted Yorick. Sanity prevailed but I still think it has legs as a potential middle name.
