    I know a few Rebel's. I'm not a fan. I just think you're asking for trouble! (In the same vein as Khaos!)

    I knew someone with a Wilyum and a Klowee (William and Chloe). Ick. Lovely names, appalling spelling!! In fact, I think they're early teens now and both spell their names the traditional ways.

    Like the Celtic queen? It's a great name!

    My partner and I are giving all our children middle names after Heros/Gods/Goddesses...If we have a daughter she'll be Sophie Iris (the Greek Goddess of the rainbow).

    Hmmm... Was discussing with a friend and realised something..... No matter what name we pick, no matter how traditional etc... It's always going to sound strange with our last name... Smoothy


    Me + He = DD1 (2007), DD2 (2010) & BellyBaby due August 2012
    Angel Baby 1 (July 2008) & Angel Baby 2 (October 2011)

    Shylah sounds pretty.

    So you get Schu = Sh? But are you saying the Dutch pronunciation of the boys name is Schu = Sk (which I guess is the English pronunciation of the Sch also?) So does that mean that you kind of just made up your own pronunciation of those words?

    Your right.. But on the other hand You do have the perfect surname for a child named Apple, or Mango, or Banana...


    Yes I would be that cruel had I married Mr Smoothy.

    I live in a very multicultural area, my English heritage is in the minority here. No names sound strange to me anymore, just a little getting used to the pronunciation.

    Having said that I know someone who had the surname Willie, you'd have to be careful what name you used with that.
