    nevaeh (i think i spelt that right??) and skyla. cannot get my head around those names, or the motivations behind them. there are others but that could take a while. i constantly find myself wanting to pronounce nevaeah nevahay because of that weird aeh thin at the end.

    felix is a real name, it's actually a latin adjective meaning happy and i think there is a king in the bible called felix too. felicia and felicity (which means happiness) are girl names coming from that root.

    Thanks girls, I get the most horriblest looks!!! When my midwife came up after Minnie's birth she ignored me wen I told her the name?! She just totally dismissed it and it wasn't written down on any of the stickers/sheets or forms it was like they thought we would change it!!

    I used to work in childcare in a very...um...interesting area and I've heard some real crackers!

    The one that absolutely takes the cake was one I came across online...

    N-A

    No, it doesn't stand for non-applicable (as was originally assumed when the parents put it on the registration forms)...it is pronounced....wait for it....

    Na-dash-ah.

    Dead serious.

    Shinebrite - I have to say I love the name Minnie. It was the name of one of my great aunts, she was the second oldest person I ever met, she lived to 99 & 7 months. The oldest person I have met is my grand mother, she hit the century in september and is still going.

    Coming to you from a galaxy far far away.

    ABJ pronounced Aberjay

    It's a boy's name and it's a combination of mum's, grandma and his sister's first initial.

    I've also heard of a boy called Manoah...sounds like manure.
