there are stacks of names that are quite common but i would not personally choose, for example: henry, hamish, angus, rory, archie, ella, bella, addison, audrey, grace.
nothing against those who have chosen those names for their little ones, its just not something i would call my little sir/lady
I just got through this entire thread, and neither of my two boys names were mentioned they are not common but definately not unheard of And certainly not bogan or places, food, things, cars etc.
Also only one of the names we chose for the baby was mentioned, and not even as an "I hate it" thought, Toby. Or Tobias to be proper :P I passed the "are my kids names likable" test woohoo!
There is only one name that my XDH has mentioned that made me squish my nose.. HUGO. (sorry if anyone has used this name) Not my cup of tea.
If our baby's a girl we are naming her Ilah. Its from an anime series we loved, but wasn't a main character and also not a very popular series so we don't feel its the same as say, naming after twighlight. :P
Nothing from a TV show or music group etc
No naming after any family members. It's not that I don't like them, I'm just totally not traditional and would like my kids to have 100% their own identities.
Nothing in the top 100. I was always one of several in my class with the same name & hated it.
I don't like boys names ending in "y" sounds.
Nothing that would cause them to not be taken seriously if they chose to have a big career.
No made up names or spelling.
***How's my spelling? Call 1800 iPhone***
I was taking names from some of my favourite books, but they are mostly fantasy or urban fantasy so not really suitable like Veralidiane or Sookie, lol.
I did fond Opal and kade and i kind of liked devlin but i am sure if i names a kid that he would be a little devil.
Wrong spellings are the absolute worst and I'm sorry to be blunt but it's not "different" it's a bit bogan. If you like the sound of the name then keep the original spelling.
Haha what is it with DH's wanting Albus, Avangela and other ridiculous fantasy novel type names!!
