Savannah.

Husband is totally set. It isn’t a name I have ever really come across and is very different to anything I’d normally pick.

I am so on the fence as to wether I love or hate?

Oh I like that. I have heard it before but I doubt it's common. I guess it just depends if you want something more mainstream or not?

I should have mentioned that we already have a boy called Noah.

I like it. It's the name of a character in one of my favourite series of books so I may be slightly biased towards it!

When I lived in Winchester, it was the name of a shitty club

Bit tacky

I agree with it sounding a bit tacky. Like Chardonnay!

I don't like it. It's in the Chardonnay, hyphenated names and Nevaeh camp for me.

I don’t know why, but whenever I hear the name, I see it as beige. I see some names as rich colours and some as bland- Savannah is a bland colour, and that puts me off it.

Odd, I know.

A savanna or savannah is a mixed woodland-grassland ecosystem

Did your DH not do geography at school?

Go for Susannah instead?

I think -
Georgia. Always love it as city name.
Africa. Wildlife.
Name - feels a bit 90s (?) to me. Not fond of it at all but who cares. If you love it use it.
Congrats bye.
