    It's been around for a while. Van Morrison. Van West. Sophie and Dale from The Block named their son Van. It's just a pity their last name is Vine though.

    I love Van as well! It was on my short list for DS2 and DS3. Jethro and Wolf were also on those lists. Those in the know will understand

    DS1 and DS2 have correctly spelt, but unusual (but totally legit) names. Whilst DD and DS3 have more traditional names. We got the best of both worlds!

    Default Horrible baby names

    Fairly certain I read last week (before the Kimye name news came out) that Easton is actually an old name making a comeback, it was on the same list as Clementine, our DD's name. Just unfortunate that Kimya will ruin it by making it sound ridiculous.

    A friend gave their DS Van as a middle name, it's quite sweet. I know hubbers would probably be fine with DS' name as I know there are a few others that used it, which annoys me because I thought we were being classic but original. I wonder what everyone would think of our other boy and girl names...old fashioned but not regularly used. I'm always too scared to tell people on here!

    Eta: when I say Easton was on the same list, I meant the huffpost parents list, not ours! ☺️

    Somebody in my local mum FB posted this the other day, apparently they're mostly old traditional names that people are scared to use for whatever reason. I'd never, ever heard of most of them but we have a couple Jagos in our neighborhood.

    No. No no no no. Just no.

    I honestly don't get why people do that. You're not funny, that's a human being. It you want to name something "Killa", get a freaking dog!

    Omg, that poor kid. What kind of a future is he going to have with a name like that? How could you ever apply for a job in a serious field and expect to get hired. Even in retail if you had to wear a name tag i think that would put a lot of employers off. So sad.

    Sorry, just went through this list and realized only a few are 'old traditional'. I think I got this list and the other I mentioned above confused. But, the ladies who originally responded knew or used Jago, Persephone, peregrine, Isis, adminta. Sorry if spelling is wrong, I couldn't be bothered going back to look! I've noticed quite a few 'toffee' Brits use some pretty odd old names that most of us wouldn't have heard of but get away with them. But also no one really bats an eye at the 'old lady' names and you end up with some sweet names running around. I've met a couple Florences (a baby and a woman) and I love it.

    I'm with you on the 'old lady' names. We had things like Esme, Daisy, Mabel, Harriet and Eleanor on our lists...but with only 1 girl and 3 boys, I missed out on all the old lady naming glory 😂
