Girls names with -Ella, -lily, -mae, -Rae, -lee or any variation
Following on from my name thread and a couple of threads I've seen about rochelle from the Saturdays new baby,I can't help but cringe when I see any of the above e.g. Gracie-Mae
I am being VVVV judgey pants but I find it so overdone, twee and chavvy.
I'm ready for my flaming!

Why chavvy? Whats with MNs obsession with the word 'chavvy'? I dont get it.
if you don't like it fair enough dont use it for your own children but judging children or the parents for their name choice is something I dont understand.
What about names like Moon Unit?

If DS had been a girl he would have had May as a middle name as born in the month of May but it wouldn't have been hyphenated and in fact wouldn't have been used at all or known about unless someone asked what the middle name was. They are pretty names but agree the hyphenation with those examples on the end have been overdone now.

I always feel sorry for the posters who will have names ending in stuff like this when these threads come up.
Would you start a "I cringe inside when I see people with ginger hair" or similar?
They can't help it, it's a name and they are stuck with it. All this "sounds chavvy" bollocks just makes the people saying it sound like stuck up snobs.
