Too many to count, but Felix, Joseph, Elspeth and Flora all spring to mind.

I feel your pain OP, I wasn’t allowed Perdita either. Or Flora, or Clementine, or Jemima or any of my favourites at all sad

Is that Aubrey for a boy? If so, lovely.

DH vetoed most of mine, but the ones I'm most upset about are Eleanor and Anna.

Topaz (ok, maybe fair enough grin)


Bastard DH. We did end up with a clutch of nice names for our DCs in the end!

Persis angry

I had twin girls, they have 2 names each. Would it have KILLED him to allow one tiny Persis?!?

On the other side of this I vetoed Brian and Clive from my husband's choices. He wasn't joking. He really wasn't. Only ten years ago too.

Maggie. She'd have been a great Maggie! I gave the name to my kitten instead...until it turned out to be a boy...foiled again!

Lennythelion14 Mon 12-Feb-18 06:40:49

Iris, devlin, mary-anna, theresa,terry, Florence and sunny are some he vetoed.I vetoed some his choices too. Bethany, Chloe,Chantelle (spelt like that), archer and colt were some i vetoed.we both had very different tastes in names. We did find some we both liked in the end. grin

A friend of mine has a Perdita. Personally the name will always be the Mum dalmation in 101 Dalmations - was that why it was vetoed?
