Hi!
What names did you love but just weren't brave enough to use?

Isis


Such a beautiful name, such a shame it has such awful connotations now :-(

I agree with Isis, it's a lovely name.

Ditto Hero.

Ah I know a little boy called Walter, he rocks it, I'm unsure whether everyone could pull it off though!

Persephone and Raphael.

I'll use them eventually, even if only for guinea pigs.

Wow, we know children with several of these names - admittedly we also have a child with a slightly unusual name, and it does seem quite normal to do so round here.

Isis?????????

Isis was an Egyptian goddess long before the IS terror group came long

...which is also why they're formally referred to as IS rather than Isis these days - too many horrified parents & daughters

For me it's Eurydice and Sherlock. And Valentine! Lovely in a French accent but I'm not in France...
