Kerenza (or other spelling ) . I had a son and am now way past reproducing.

Penelope but DP said veto'ed it , I managed to sneak it in as a middle name

crookedhooker Mon 04-Dec-17 20:16:04

Luke sounded so wrong with my surname.wink

Smoliver Mon 04-Dec-17 20:53:03

Marissa and Maia - love these names but they don't work with the middle names I want to use.

Jasper - I watched 101 Dalmatians. One of the evil henchmen was called Jasper. It was a no from me ever since! grin

Merryn. Rhymes with a name already in the family.
Tallulah. Love the sound of this and the nicknames but it would be such a big name to live up to!

Posey for a girl.

Murdo for a boy. Strong name with Scottish connections which I love but DP thought it sounded too much like 'murder'

Carolwithane Mon 04-Dec-17 21:20:34

Robbie - DP hates it! M'eh hmm

Now 38 weeks and still don't have a name if it's a boy!

QueenNefertitty Mon 04-Dec-17 21:21:25



DS is my one and will be my only- his name is lovely, and he is magnificent, but still sad I won't use any of these

StressheadMcGee Mon 04-Dec-17 21:22:20

Charlie - because my surname is also slang for a certain type of drug wink

GetTheGoodLookingGuy Mon 04-Dec-17 21:28:33

Emilio - too similar to my own name sad

YouBetterWORK Mon 04-Dec-17 23:10:22

I did like the sound of Alexa (not short for anything, just Alexa on it's own). Obviously Amazon have ruined that now though, people would go "What? After the talking home device?!"

IggyAce Tue 05-Dec-17 05:37:04

Balthazar (not brave enough and DH would have vetoed)

Ezekiel, found this name after we had completed our family.

Rosalie, DH vetoed but dc2 was a boy anyway.

rizlett Tue 05-Dec-17 05:49:11



Both family names.

hlc123 Tue 05-Dec-17 12:29:59

BelfastSmile Tue 05-Dec-17 13:00:51


I love it, but it doesn't work with our surname, and is a bit to similar to my nephew, Joe (Joseph).

Mrsknackered Tue 05-Dec-17 13:24:24

Alba - love it, every time I suggested it DP said 'tross'

Meg - my grandma's NN but DP won't have it unless it is short for Megan, which I really don't like sad

Iris - "it's a part of an eye, not a name"

Nala/Nahla - took close to DS1's name and is too corny Disney

Ambrose - "old man" "custard" "Kanye wests ex"
