    My husband does this all the time as his name is a bit unusual, he can't be bothered spelling it out to people at shops so he just says Sam. I had to make a doctors appointment for him the other day and I said his name and then she asked what his first name was I was like umm I already said it haha!

    This is what I always think of when I hear the name Dexter, and then I think of DeeDee and his mum with the big ol' yellow kitchen gloves. My eldest dd loved that cartoon so much. Got to admit I was pretty fond of it too.

    These are some of my fave names for future children
    Kitty
    Amity
    Willow
    Everly
    Birdie
    River
    Cash
    Sailor
    Poppy
    Rose
    Daisy
    I like all of those, apart from two. Even the 2 names that I don't like probably only go as far as eyebrow raisers.

    Eta, if you ever plan on living in Byron Bay don't use River lol. It was one of the most common baby names there not too long ago.

    I don't mind Sailor, but yes Kitty and Birdie are the two names that I don't like. They still aren't extreme though and you could get away with using them.

    this is exactly how I thought about it too.

    Haha!!
    My husband is from another country in Europe.
    His real name is.. Well it's a mouthful lol.
    He goes by a common name for most things but for legal things and drs he hates it.
    We had a large check that we needed to bank, but DH's name was spelt wrong, so it was a huge stuff around for months.
    His middle name is also a mouthful and is spelt wrong on our wedding certificate

    It's actually not an unusual name, just not overly popular in Australia... yet I have been told that it's disgraceful I named my son after a serial killer. .. to which my response is No, I heard the name on a fictional show about a serial killer and I liked it... I see no problem at all.

    I see no problem with it at all. Those people must also have issues with Ted, Ivan, Paul, Peter, David, John etc...

    That's funny! My DP is Joshua too but spelt Joschua. Apparently it's a better name numerologically... Funny though now I find it really hard to leave the C out.

    Also my DD's have unusual names the first more so than the second, however DP would not budge. It seems her name has never been in the top 2000 names even in America, however it is apparently Zac Efrons mums name lol.
    I worry about people judging her based in her name as it is pretty airy fairy and hippy. I'm secretly hoping she'll change her name to my choice when she's 18.

    Oh gosh that sounds like a pain!! How did they stuff it up on your marriage certificate though, wouldn't they have had to copy it off the forms? Hopeless!! My maiden name is a very common English name and I still had to spell it out every time and even have to spell my first name out sometimes and it's Lauren which I thought was very common but there must be a different way of spelling it!?
