It has significance to us (it's DH's grandmother's maiden name) and to be honest, all the other names we like just don't seem to compare to Parker.

    Thoughts on what to do?

    ETA - should mention the other names in our shortlist are Emmett, Edward and Jasper.
    Do you like Twilight?

    OMG me neither, but that's actually pretty funny! Hahaha. Edward, Emmett and Jasper. Classic! I do love all 3 names though, regardless of them all being Cullens/Hales

    PS Lambjam, edited for correctness

    Thanks ladies, it's nice to hear some positive comments about using Parker

    And, yes, I do love Twilight That wasn't intentional though I swear, Edward is for my poppy who passed away in 2011, DH loves Emmett (and he hates Twilight!) and I love Jasper (which may have been influenced ).
