Not quite what you mean but ds1 was due to be a Jack. As soon as he was born the midwife asked his name and when we said Jack the midwife screwed her nose up and said "that's a shame there are so many Jacks around". So we changed our minds .
I still like Jack, but on the whole glad we changed it.
Liam. We both loved it and would've called our younger son that but we'd recently had new next door neigbours who had a son called Liam and he was a horrible bully to our older son (who was 3 at the time) so there was no way we could use it.
Our DC was going to be Willow. 2 weeks before DC was born Mark Owen had a girl and called her Willow!!! We then settled for Elinor. I think we also fancied Ruby did DC1 and the Kaiser Chiefs ruined that one!
Oh CraigRevel can I just say your child had a lucky escape. It's not just the Thunderbirds and "yes m'lady" jokes but also the Parker pen, nosey Parker names it would have to put up with .... Bet you can't guess what my maiden name was I used to love Charlotte, was top of my list for years but kinda gone off it over the last 12 months Luke also love but I have 2 ex's called Luke and that's just a bit weird.
Loved Harper when pregnant with DS1 (didn't find out the sex). Then the Beckhams had their Harper about 3 months before I was due. Now I like the Beckhams but I didn't fancy fielding the "oh you like the Beckhams then?" questions that would have been inevitable. Any name that is overused is ruined for me honestly.
