most of them are lovely

I find it easier to say which ones I don't like if you are interested

LollipopSweetiePie Sat 23-Jul-05 14:15:56

Yes please, do tell me which ones you don't like, although I'm aure everyone will think Mary Megan sounds silly, although I love the name Mary but dont know what to use with it! Tell me the ones you dislike plz!

There is a definate theme running through. can see which names you like, why not stick with them?

PeachyClair Sat 23-Jul-05 14:25:32

love Olivia Grace, know a very lovely girl by that name, don't like Dionne (that was the name of the local shoplifetr when I was a kid ! Funny how things stick with you), Isobel is nice, mary megan is fine- what's the problem with it, unless your surname is Morgan- Maycee Grace is a bit derivative. Boys love Elliott Thomas, or Elliott full stop, not sure about Judias.

Gosh, hope you don't mind- you did ask!

Twiglett Sat 23-Jul-05 14:26:57

I like Mary Megan actually

ok, deep breath

don't like

Dionne (makes me think of Dionne warwick)
Jordannah (sounds a little Chav to me)
Maycee (same as Jordannah)

Not Jonah .. please not Jonah .. it has really really bad connotations .. look it up in a thesaurus

Olivia Grace


Thomas Elliott

Guess I need to think about names myself at some stage as it was a nightmare agreeing for #3...

My DD would vote for Joshua Elliot as that is what she chose for DS2...

LollipopSweetiePie Sat 23-Jul-05 14:31:07

No course I dont mind! Such opinions is what will make the child a happy one and not an embarrarassed one in the playground because mummy chose a wankerish name!

Twiglett Sat 23-Jul-05 14:33:07

Twiglett Sat 23-Jul-05 14:33:58

DD's middle name is Grace and she was going to be Isaac Saul if a boy

snafu Sat 23-Jul-05 14:34:46

Oh, hapless, bless. I quite like Jonah as a name but it does always make me think of whales.

LollipopSweetiePie Sat 23-Jul-05 14:36:40

Jonah - the poor fish looool

Ladymuck Sat 23-Jul-05 14:37:13

For boys in particulr I would check what the initials will look like (no idea of your surname, so that's down to you). But would generally avoid ET or IT!

madmarchhare Sat 23-Jul-05 14:39:08

I like Jonah and Poppy the bestest .

LollipopSweetiePie Sat 23-Jul-05 14:39:27

I love the name Saul too!!! Forgot to put that down. There was a Saul at nursery I used to work at. He was the most docile, sweet little boy you could ever meet. You could just eat him all up, and so I liked that name ever since! I really like biblical names. I like Jorge too (pronounced hor-hay)

LollipopSweetiePie Sat 23-Jul-05 14:40:28

Surname Clarke - dp's name

LollipopSweetiePie Sat 23-Jul-05 14:41:09

Just realised! ETC and ICT!!! Would that be cruel....?

Hmm, possibly! Character building though?

You can always break it up, which is what we did with Harold (HP!!), he is now Harold Jarvis Griffith Peach- bit long but some silly reasons for it all (Harol = Grandad Griffiths = Mum's maiden name, Jarvis = Jarvis Cocker, tee hee).

Elliott Samuel Thomas? Elliott Isaac Thomas?
