Mine has Rose as a middle name as her grandma (named Rose) died when I was pg, am I exempt? blush

CuckooClockWorkOrange Fri 08-Aug-08 20:29:44

I will allow Rosemary. (not Rosemarie).

It's like Anne in the 60s or Jane in the 70s.
What was the filler name in the 80s?

Dreadfulwoman Fri 08-Aug-08 20:32:49

Jayne (as in 70's but with a y). Only one of my school friends wasn't a Jayne.

deffo Louise for the 80s

In the late 70s and early 80s it was Louise, that isn't my middle name but is middle name of most girls I went to school with.

Mine is the other filler name of the 70s and 80s, Elizabeth.

the middle names of me & my sisters (all born late 70's mid 80's) are Jane, Louise and Alexandra.
Always grew up thinking my younger sister had such a cool middle name!

I know lots of something-Jades from the late 90's

noonki Fri 08-Aug-08 20:46:31

In DD's year at school (b1989-90) about 40 out of 200 girls had Louise as first or middle name - I remember counting them on the sign in list one parents evening while aiting to talk to the maths teacher.

ElfOnTheTopShelf Fri 08-Aug-08 20:55:54

There was a Louisa in my year at secondary school, she was very exotic among the groups of Emma, Louise, Laura, Claire, Sarah, Gemma...

georgimama Fri 08-Aug-08 20:57:38

Surely there must be some Elizabeths out there too?

CantSleepWontSleep Fri 08-Aug-08 21:08:23

DD has middle name Rose after my late grandmother, so I'm also pleading exemption.

It makes me laugh because of that old rhyme
