It will be Lynn or Sky (we don't like the extra unnecessary 'e' on either name).

Isn't 'Lyn' an alternative spelling though?

Thanks all smile

They're very different! I prefer Sky, as Lynn is very much in the Shirley, jean, Linda, Joan age of names for me.

I prefer sky but I admit I prefer it with the e so it's like the island not the sky.

mumhum Sat 28-Jan-17 14:39:13

How do you mean Lyn is 'alternative'? The one I know is very conventional!

Awwlookatmybabyspider Sat 28-Jan-17 14:40:48

Definitely Lynn. What a change thatll be in a class full of Islas and Avas Sorry but sky just screams chav to me.

MrsMeeseeks Sat 28-Jan-17 14:41:44

Sky. Lynn is a bit matronly.

CrystalMcPistol Sat 28-Jan-17 14:41:48

I don't think the e on Skye is unnecessary. The beautiful island is Skye and better to be named after that than the vast expanse above our heads.

Big thumbs down to Lyn, Lynn and Lynne though.

Lynn is of an era with Maxine, Barbara and Gwen. Yuck.

mumhum Sat 28-Jan-17 14:44:55

I know a lovely Lyn born 40 years ago

CharlesDD Sat 28-Jan-17 14:45:18

Yes but Lynn is the 'original' Lyn is an alternative spelling.

I like Sky. Lynn is very dated. It's a bit of a non name.

My DD is Sukai, pronounced sky. Spelt the Japanese way.

mumhum Sat 28-Jan-17 14:52:00

I prefer Lyn, whichever spelling. Agree with PP Sky is a bit chavvy.

CharlesDD Sat 28-Jan-17 14:56:26

Chavvy? What the heck is that supposed to even mean? Working class?

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sat 28-Jan-17 14:57:49

Common (not as in popular) rather than working class.

I don't agree though, I like it.

It's just your bog standard hate speech Charles

mumhum Sat 28-Jan-17 14:59:26

chavvy - 'usually a younger and lowerer class person typified by loutish and brattish behaviour'

CharlesDD Sat 28-Jan-17 14:59:36

What's 'common' supposed to mean? confused
