Cool it, Slubber. I SAID that I didn't necessarily dislike these names - just picking out the ones which may edge over from popularity. Just idly speculating for a bit of fun. My word isn't law! It ain't NECESSARILY gonna happen! It's just people's opinions, like every other flippin' thread. My daughter is going to get a real poncypants name and most people on here would think it was totally bleugh. So the duck what!
Furthermore, I have a really popular name from the 1970s which most people would think was totally cack. I have come to terms with it now. Besides which, I haven't had a sense of humour bypass, and if someone said "Oh blimey!" about my name I could er, just shrug it off.
Wasn't really thinking about class actually...only popularity
LT,it works both ways though.I have a very unusual name and gave my dd a "popular" name mentioned on this thread as I hate the endless mis-spellings and explanations/jokes that go with my name.(Actually,when I gave it her it was after a great jazz singer,I didn't realise how popular it was).A friend has a Molly and a Grace,another a Rhys and a Millie-Mae!!Oh and I have a nephew called Alfie!
