    Emerson, my all time favorite name but it sounds to similar to DS's name so would never use it, I guess that's what I get for letting DH have final say on ds's name lol

    Spencer, used it for a pet long before I ever considered having kids, I'm kicking myself now

    Azaria, for obvious reasons

    I linked in my first post somewhere where you can click and hear how you pronounce Genevieve in French.

    I did consider some of the "Ed" beginning alternates: Edison, Edmund, Edwin. Problem there is of course the husband, who says I pick "boring grandpa names". Yes, DH, in comparison to you I do. He suggested Spike. And was serious.

    I'm not a fan of weird names, or strange spellings.

    My own name is normal but spelled Amie, which means I have to spell it for everyone, all the time (even so people still get it wrong, I get Aimie, Aime, etc.) I also get called Annie a lot, which is awkward when I have to correct people. I'd never be so disrespectful to my Mum as to change it, but it does get frustrating at times.

    My maiden name is really weird too, which means it used to get spelled wrong, pronounced wrong, and teachers and principals had such a hard time with it. Luckily my married name is a lot easier

    My kids are getting nice normal names, spelled normally. I want them to be able to buy name mugs and stickers, I want them to be able to say their name and not have to spell it out for everyone. I don't want them being picked on for having a different name, which I was quite a bit

    Orla - vetoed by DP

    Maisie - May is really common in my family so I can't do it.

    Charlie - because if we have a daughter she'll be Sophie, no question. However I look after a Sophia who's brother is Charlie and I wouldn't want to copy them too much if I ended up with a Sophie and Charlie, and since Sophie is a must if I had a boy first, he'll be Toby.

    I want a kid with the initials TJ, but DP's ex was called TJ so that's out.

    Anna/Annie I love, but doesn't go with DPs surname at all (Ander-sson)

    Aiden, Riley and Ethan are all out - I work with kids and had too many very difficult clients with these names!

    I wouldn't use any name of a close relative, and no 'creative' spellings or hyphenated names.

    I have a friend called Emma-Lee and she constantly gets called Emily or Emma. Could you use Emma as a first name and Lee as a middle name?

    Ha ha! Spike is in our shortlist if the next baby is a boy.

    I love Benton but would never use it because too many people would take the liberty of shortening it to Ben. I definitely do not want a son called Ben!
