I've just found a note of possible names on my phone and I found it really interesting the variety of names we considered. We've had two girls so never got to choose a boys names, my absolute favourite boys name is Sebastian and I really would have pushed for that.

What are your unused names? Here are mine:

Boy
- Ethan
- Sebastian
- Alaric
- Tierney
- Mylo
- Remy
- Elijah

Girl
- Willow
- Madison
- MacKenzie
- Ellen
- Caitlin
- Isabelle
- Ella
- Amelie
- Ava
- Georgia
- Zara
- Savannah

Also really liked Kyle and Karen. Was talked out of those by my mum, who said they were common chavvy. Still like them though.

I don't think they're chavvy at all. Karen and Dane are very different types of name. It's interesting the different things that appeal to the same person.

I love Emmet! I really love names beginning with vowels.

Iseult and Sorcha are interesting - I hadn't heard them before but like them. I imagine they'd spend their entire lives spelling it or correcting people though.

I had a huge list of lovely names, all of which were vetoed by DH angry

The only ones we actually agreed on, other than the name we chose were:

Elizabeth
Amy
James

It is funny but names I totally loved in one pregnancy, I totally ruled out in another. Each one had a totally different 'feel' iyswim.

DS was only ever going to be the name he is.

I found a draft last of DD's potential names a few years ago. They included
Kitty
Evelyn
Rose
Zoe (middle)
Stephanie

Her name is nothing like any of these.
