for boy and girl..(surprise sex)Got 5 weeks to go and still no nameMy DD's name is a old English name which we love...but still struggling on the names just like it was with DD baby will take after Dp's surname which is a typical Irish surname.
By 'old English' do you mean traditional names? Victorian names? Anglo-Saxon names?
Annis is a lovely medieval name, if that's what you're after....
By "old English" are we talking Ethelred etc?
Ooh, Annis is lovely. Dammit - shall I have to have another baby ???? My DS is Lynden (alt. Linden, Lyndon). That's Old English.
My teenage DD's just said Annis would be called Anus at school.
I guarantee Annis will get an easier time of it than Gunnora, Horenga, and Sexhiue Here's a good resource
