i really like a name but its a name one of my friends has always liked and was gonna name her babies if she had a girl. Well shes ended up with two boys and says that is enough for her but she might consider in a few years depending on how she feels. Well i really like the name sophie but feel awkward knowing that was the name she would have or would give her little girl if she ever did one.Would you just go ahead anyhow.
Sophie is not a rare enough name for you to have to ask permission, imo. Not that I think you need permission anyway, just because your friend likes that name. If she does go ahead and have another baby, and if that baby is a girl, she can still use the name Sophie.
In the 17th or 18th century I think Jade was one of the many slang terms for prostitute.
Paige: now what is that name about? Certainly not saintly or royal. Quite a few of them about in schools at the mo; my guess is it will sound v dated in a few years.
