talking about baby names today. he has dismissed every name i have suggested so have asked him to suggest one he likes before bed... don't know whether to laugh or cry at names he is suggesting

actually that's not strictly true - started off laughing and he was getting grumpy so next reaction is to cry!

colette (i kid you not)
aliya (what?!)

he's using some random site for suggestions.

maybe he's doing it on purpose to put me off a 3rd..!

we're trying for a 3rd here and dps suggestions are..



Hmm, i'm actually surprised as I think they are all ok, though ds1 wouldnt be happy with Blaze as much too cool compared to his traditional name grin

LOL. An eclectic mixture of names

Colette = transexual name
Gwen = shortbread and a nice cardie
Aliya = quite a nice name ? not sure - pop lady who died?

(No offence to anyone with those names)

I like Gwen btw.. but dp hates it as his sister is called that and they clash.

yes, dh says he would want to 'push the boat out' with dc 3 name - that we were 'too safe' with first 2 names!

i adore names of first 2... but if anything have become more traditional in my preferences!

I think my dp is of a similar opinion on the boys name front as we have 2 ds's with traditional biblical names.. I like Joshua for #3 not even thinking of a girls name as dont think i end up with a girl and if i did i'd be shocked (but obviouslay just as happy).

I love Gwen, short for Gwendolen, it is on our list - also like Winnie short for Gwendolen too.
