DD was named mostly by my shit of an ex. I like her first name (like, not love) but her middle name I just have no connection with at all.

I cheer myself up by imagining what wild and wonderful things I could name her if I had my time again:

Phaedra Rainbow
Caroline Jacinta
Clarabel Joy
Aurelia Faith
Audrey Demeter

My children should be called Jacob, Edward and Katherine. Unfortunately it turns out that DH has an opinion on, and ideas about, names and I had to compromise angry

DD2 should be Penelope but DH wouldn't agree (even when I put on my puppy eyes post section!). Having said that I do love her name so it's ok.

I wanted Dasha for DD, but DH wasn't having a bar of it. He's now decided he doesn't mind the name, but too little too late as our DD's name is now Ivy.

If we'd had a boy, he would've been Samuel Morrison.

I like the name Sarabeth. It was a name of a character in a book I once read, many moons ago, I can't remember the author's name nor the storyline but I still remember the protoganist's name: Sarabeth Silver grin

Not keen on your names OP tbh.

Did I ask for opinions?

ThroughThickAndThin01 Thu 15-Sep-16 21:22:35

I'd say you asked for people's opinions. Why start a thread otherwise confused.

Well tbf OP asked us for our names we couldn't/didn't/wished we had been able to use not opinions. Mine would be
Magenta, Frieda, Saul, Arriety, Adriel. Didn't dare.

Would love to have used my Grandad middle name which was Nelson but I wasn't brave enough.

enchantmentandlove Sat 17-Sep-16 23:27:07

Ariella, Arabella, Eden and Gabriel.

I do love dds name though and wouldn't change it!

I really wanted Peppa/Pepper for DS2 before we found out we were having a boy.

There was no way DH would've let me use it though.

I would have had a Gabriella and Joseph but DP vetoed both.
