Heard today:-


At the doctors the other day was deliah-rose. Thought it was a misspell for Delilah but then maybe it's Delia?

And the when I worked in a nursery there was a little boy called deneil. Not too bad you say, till you knew his older brother was called Neil hmm

Boudicca - bloody love it, such a cool name!

Also know brother and sister called Harrison and Indiana. Parents must be fans!

Briella. Sounds like the third ugly sister in Cinderella.

Coal (spelt like that, not Cole)
Dasher. (Yes like the reindeer. Poor kid is a teenager, DBs class in school)
Both boys.

Diesel and Donnay (confused
Scarlett (last name was Balls!)

My friend works in a school and there is little girl there called Babydoll!

Fox (baby boy)
Zye-eer-ah (no idea on spellings, only chatted with her once)

There was a small boy at nursery called Ronaldinho.

Have also met an Ambolynn at a playgroup. Oh and a Chien-Angel

Have also come accross a Lois which rather than being pronounced Low-iss, was more like Loi-s as in 'Oi you!'. That may be a variant but I'd never heard it before.

I love Boudicca too!!

For real? What are the siblings' names - Wendigo and Succubus?

Peaceloveandpartyrings Fri 06-Nov-15 13:58:34

Artorius. I love a strong name like that, wish I had the balls!
I wanted to call DS Cassius but DH vetoed envy

L-oi-s is the welsh variant.

Still unusual. I met a baby one once.

Expat grin
If only I'd had the guts to ask! The same thought crossed my mind too and found myself grinning to myself!

Fizrim Fri 06-Nov-15 14:03:14

I've come across someone (Lois) who pronounced it Loyce. Zaire (Zye-eer-ah) is the former name of the Republic of Congo?


IAmcuriousyellow Fri 06-Nov-15 14:03:17

I've mentioned this before, but years ago I met a pair of little boys, twins, called Kidderminster and Ulysses

Ah I know a loola. My mum thought I had missheard and kept correcting me to lola but no it was a loola

Thywill. As in Bedone. I shit you not...I quite like the Marvellous, Blessing etc names out there but Thywill is too much imo.
Also Bishop and Daysee.

AuntieStella Fri 06-Nov-15 14:13:48

I know a loola but she spells it Lula. It doesn't seem particularly weird to me (no more than Lila).
