I first started thinking of baby names since I turned about 15!! I always knew I wanted children and often would think of baby names and have always had a few in mind. What about you ladies??

I've always liked phoebe, luna or fleur for a girl and asa or jae for a boy.

As a child! But my taste in names was awful. If I'd been a teenage mum, I probably would have called the baby Chloe, or something.

Mama out of interest have you got children now and what are there names? Or names do you like if you don't have children?

MamaLazarou Thu 30-Jul-15 11:24:59

I do have a son, but I would rather not say his name on here as it's unusual and would out me.

I think I was at least halfway through my pregnancy before I gave his name more than a passing thought.

As a child, but my taste in names has changed a lot since then!

From childhood, but my taste in names has moved on, as having naming trends.

So glad I didn't have a baby at 15 yrs old as it would have been called Jade (totally not my style now)!

Raines100 Thu 30-Jul-15 21:45:20

As a child. My tastes in names have changed a lot since then, though. My top picks for boy's names when I was about 12 were River and Levi.
DS1 & DS2's actual names are completely different wink

When I was little I loved the name Kerry!!confused

Thankfully I couldn't use it as it rhymed with my dh surname!grin

BertrandRussell Thu 30-Jul-15 22:03:31

Do and I discussed a name 20 years before we actually had a child. He went back on it when we had a real life baby to name. I will never forgive him!

er, when I was about 8. And I was quite sure I would never have any kids.

scatterthenuns Thu 30-Jul-15 22:05:15

At about 10!

When I was about 8. My taste in boys names didn't change and DS has the name I always loved. My favourite girls names changed continually, depending on my current favourite book and DD has a name I hadn't considered till I was pregnant with her.

dimdommilpot Thu 30-Jul-15 23:10:12

As a kid i wanted Mitchell for a boy and Jordan for a girl blush
In all seriousness though i chose DD1s name when i was 15, although no actual plans to have kids i knew if i had a daughter she would have the name she does.

IdaClair Thu 30-Jul-15 23:17:16

As a child. I wanted to call them Ian and Ruth!

calzone Thu 30-Jul-15 23:17:58

I loved Chelsea Leigh shockshockshock and Graham confusedconfusedconfused when I was a child!

What was I thinking?

I have 2 boys now.

If I had another they would be called Persephone and Theodore.

tvlover1234 Thu 30-Jul-15 23:26:53

Calzone I love Theodore!

I bought my first baby name book when I was in primary school.

Oh no, the idea of naming babies, or ever entertaining idea of having babies in my childhood, or teens, would have been repellent to me. My dolls and toys, and pets, all had very stupid names, though, so who knows what I'd have named a human child.

At 7 I wanted twins called Catherine and Caroline. Went on to meet the most horrid woman called Caroline so glad I didn't use them!
