If it was entirely upi to you what would your kids be called?
Fillyjonk · 11/06/2008 20:34
I think mine would be
they would have bloody suited them too, though we'd have been laughed out of the playground
TREBUCHET · 11/06/2008 20:37
Gilbert and Tuppence.

I don't have a girl but left entirely to my own devices she would have been called Genevieve. Very ponce-tastic
DS1 would probably stay as he is.
DS2 would have been Benedict. Also a bit poncy.
Ben and Gena for short - a bit more manageable.

Noah and Kitty
fullmoonfiend · 11/06/2008 20:42
Do you mean if life were different and you could really call your child whatever you wanted without ridicule or judgement??
HungryHungryHippo · 11/06/2008 20:44
DTD1 - Keturah
DTD2 - Germaine
DD3 - erm, dunno. DH chose her name cos i couldn't decide!
AdamAnt · 11/06/2008 20:44
Exactly what they are called. Who dissuaded you from your first choice of names?
paolosgirl · 11/06/2008 20:44
They aren't because DH guffawed at Archie (oooh Eerrchie), I only started loving Freya a couple of years ago, so too late for DD, and Will gets 'shortened' to Wullie up here in Scotland - so no to that.

The names that I have called them
fishie · 11/06/2008 20:49
ds might possibly have been conrad. but really his own name suits him very well.
sweetkitty · 11/06/2008 20:49
Same here their actual names.
Although if I wasn't with DP with his surname I could have had some other names I liked IYSWIM.
MKG · 11/06/2008 21:24
It was entirely up to me. I told dh that although I respected his input and would take it into consideration, until he carrried a gave birth to a baby all names were up to me.
ds1 is Mateo (Means "gift from God" and truly fit the circumstances of his pregnancy)
ds2 is Cruz (dh was watching a movie while I was asleep and the next day the name of one of the characters kept popping in my head, the more I said it the more I liked it.)
IllegallyBrunette · 11/06/2008 21:26
Dd1 and Ds would be as they are, but Dd2 would be Eloise. It is her middle name, but I always wanted it as her first name.
BroccoliSpears · 11/06/2008 21:28
DD would have been Gertrude. Gertie for short. DP was having none of it.
DS would stay the same. He seems to really suit his name so far, but he's only 6 weeks old so it's hard to tell!
EyeballsintheSky · 11/06/2008 21:33
Only got one dd but she would have been called Caroline (my cousin's name so my mum banned it!)
Next fictional dd would be Verity (dh hates it, I love it)
Fictional ds would be Sebastian and Dominic
OrmIrian · 11/06/2008 21:35
My boys name are fine. But DD would have been Idony - I just really liked it.
yama · 11/06/2008 21:36
It was entirely up to me.
MadBadandDangeroustoKnow · 11/06/2008 21:36
Same as on the birth certificate - although dd herself wants to add Katie Alice to the listed names!
RubySlippers · 11/06/2008 21:37
DS would be Rafi
DH would have left me
controlfreakyagain · 11/06/2008 21:38
just dont get this "my mum said i couldnt..." ffs! if you're old enough to be a mum then surely you're old enough to stand your ground with your own mum?!
my dss are (obviously) called exactly what i wanted for each of them... (dh's choice too)
my (hypothetical) dds would be called
glory and pearl
ByTheSea · 11/06/2008 21:39
Exactly what they are. Good thing I didn't have any boys to name as that's where I couldn't agree with DH.
controlfreakyagain · 11/06/2008 21:40
and yes, my dss each have totally poncetastic names....
hayley2u · 11/06/2008 21:41
prob princess, callum or freddie as boy.
if up 2 my mum dd would have been called moira, but so reminds e of moira hindley what was she thinking lol
