ha, I thought the G / B was part of the name (as in Bony M, Ali G etc) just realised it was for girl or boy Doh!

Edie sweet

Flossie ok as long as it has a fn

Jolie I like (but not the actress)

Jacobi - as in the actor? Jacob good.

Mckenzie - has dwnmrket assoc locally although good enough for billionaire JKR

Enzo, yes if have Italian roots

Benaii/Sydney - mixed opinions

No to Onaissis (fat-looking magnate), Fabrizia(sounds like something in my cleaning cupboard) & Ylennia (irrational dislike of Y names, except Yogi Bear)

Only like Caspian, but I wouldn't actually call a child that. I had a friend called Flossie, but it wasa nickname (she had very frizzy hair).

They are all a tad chavvy imo

Hulababy · 28/01/2008 21:26

Onassis - don't like this; what are its origins?
Enzo - fine if Italian (?) but not otherwise
Caspian - not for me
Ylennia - how do you pronouce it? Don't like it
Edie - short for Edith, which I do quite like
Flossie - quite pretty; short for Florence I think which I also quite like
Jolie - after Angelina
Jacobi - what is wrong with just Jacob, which is a perfectly nice real name after all
Mckenzie - this is a surname, not a first name IMO
Benaii - def not for me
Cydnie/Sydney - certainly don't like the spellings; Sidney is OK I guess for a boy but not my choice
Fabrizia - not for me; reminds me of Fabreeze clothes spray thing!

BellaDonna79 · 28/01/2008 22:03

Um ok, ben-ay was because her parents liked the sound of jonbenet's name but not its connotations and ylennia was pronounced yuh-len-nia but that might just be one set of parents interpretation iykwim! Getting some interesting responses LOL gotta agree with most of you, there's a few in there I quite like but I think a couple are goddamn awful

3andnomore · 28/01/2008 22:14

it always surprises me that people are so quick to use the term chavvy when it's about unusual, made up names...I can understand, but names like Enzo, Ylennia, etc...are quite obviously names from different cultures, mainly used by people from that hardly chavvy....grrrrrrrr....really winds me up this whole chavvy judgemental thing that people have going on...

deep breath

and off my soapbox, lol

saggers · 28/01/2008 22:17

and mackenzie, i spose.

moljam · 28/01/2008 22:21

3andnomore i agree and will put my soapbox next to yours but you said it all already!.made up names can be bit silly but i suppose all names come from somewhere.but names from different cultures are just that-names from different cultures!

NKF · 28/01/2008 22:21

Fabrizia and Enzo are Italian names I think. Is Edie short for Edith? I'm not keen on unisex names like McKenzie. Can't think of anything else to say really.

SlartyBartFast · 28/01/2008 22:22

oh is mackenzie unisex,
i was thinking of mackenzie, Crook.. i think... al la ricky gervais

SlartyBartFast · 28/01/2008 22:23

NKF · 28/01/2008 22:23

Enzo B NO NO
Caspian B NO
Flossie G YES
Jacobi B NO NO NO
