    Default Names you will NOT be using for your baby

    Just wondering what names you will definately not be using for your babies.

    I have Bijou on my list, which is french for jewel, but people think it is realy odd and hate it. So i was wandering what peole dont like as names, since there are lots about what peole do like.


    For me i am not using any of the new word names like Reverie, Bourgouis, Drummer, Glow, Apple or Boheme.

    Im just not a trend setter, plus i live inthe country where every second boy is either Jack, John or Bill and i dont want my kids teased for their name.

    What about you?

    Bijou is beautiful , don't worry if 'people' think it's odd and hate it, it won't be their child named that, it will be yours and at the end of the day, if you don't go with what you like, you'll regret it.

    I won't be using and I never use names that feature or have featured in the 'Most popular name of such and such year' or any in the top 100 or 1000. It's not even really a conscious decision, it's just the names that do feature in there I don't like.

    Jackson. So many people I know have had boys this year and called them Jackson. Lots of spelling variations though.
