Looking for a pushchair? Find out which stroller is our Mumsnet Best of 2017!
Holly maybe Is this a big no-no?Maybe middle name?
Is this the prospective Lydia?
My mother was born on boxing day and has Noelle as a middle name. Maybe middle name would be good, if you want to? Unless you love the name holly.
Lydia is just a name I like, nothings definate.In fact DH really doesn't like it so I think Im back to the drawing board Its fecking stressfull!Noelle is lovely!
I think using a name just cos lo born at xmas is naff.
But then if she was telling someone on the phone her name, would sound a little like "Lydia, no-L" i.e. ydia?
PMSL pooka, it would!!That really made me laugh!
I rather like Noelle too.But I think the main thing is that it should be a name that you really like, and if it's seasonally appropriate, then fine. As a middle name you can get away with much more.
I love Christy (for any time of the year), dh doesn't though...
Unless your dh would be mre keen on "Ydia". Is unusual, granted.
Chrissy Mas ?and our surname...SalesChrissy Mas Sales.
One of my work colleagues was born on Xmas Day and he was called Noel. He hated it.
And from Pookas funny post, I sugest : Belle Noelle
Dh Said if she is overdue we should call her January Sales.
I am liking your dh. Three fortwo
I know... the possibilities if we were cruel!Dh said he used to get ''firstname' Sales the seven seas'Stupid kids, its not even the right kind of Sales ... all that scope for name calling and they missed it.Ejits.
Her birthday will be overshadowed by Christmas every year. I wouldn't give her an every day reminder. Pick a name you like
Natalia is beautiful, very appropriate and yet the meaning isn't obviously going to link her birth to xmas.
We have a Natalia already int he family.I think ill just stick to any names, its hard enough as it is without christmassy limitations!
My name's Holly, but i was born in July lol.I love Noelle.Two of my friends, they are twins, were born just after christmas, they are called Caroline and Angela. Caroline because of Christmas carols, and Angela because of the Angel Gabriel/angel on the top of tree.BUT nothing wrong with Holly i say!
Natalie, Natalia, Holly... Jesus...<voice trails off...>
my dd was due xmas day (in the end a few days late) but id settled on clementine as i thought it was quite a christmassy fruit - i still chose it even tho not the big day itself
lol it could be so much worse Jules.
