Ad the title asks - what names do you really like/love but are too afraid to use as you are scared of teasing/what people or society may think/"the prime minister rule"?
DD suggested Repunzel as a name for the baby if it comes out pink, and well DP and I dont hate it, but dont think we could seriously use it
Another name I love is Clover for a little girl, IMO no different to all the lilys, meadows, skyes, rivers etc out there, but DP hates it and says no way he would use it to name a person
So, who else has a few they would like to share? (and who knows, someone else may find their perfect baby name )

Sort of spinoff - Different/weird names you like but dont have the balls to use?

Meadow and Milo are probably the ones people go, "Wtf?" to. Even though I can think of a few actual Milos out there who aren't brown chocolatey stuff you put in milk or a ginger kitten, that seems to be all people think of when you say it.
I'd have the balls to use both though... just never the opportunity really, unless I get pets and name them that. DP thinks I might as well name a child "lawn," if I use Meadow. lol.

DF and I years ago watched a show a woman called her son Ezekiel, we both looked at each other and said we loved the name but not for a child... About a year later we ended up with Zeke (Ezekiel) the dog. Pity really cos we loved the name Zac for DS but it was too close to the dogs name...

Niahwela. It means journey in an African language. We were on a 2000km cycling trip across Europe when I fell pregnant with DD. I love the name but didnt think I could use it. Df hated it.

Paris. It's not that unusual but for obvious reasons, its a little spoiled!!
Me and DH went on our honeymoon there and loved it so much, it's a pretty name but I could just never use it now..

I love the name Scout for a girl but DH and Mum both scoffed at me when I suggested it for DD. Don't think I could have brought myself to use it anyway but have loved it ever since reading To Kill A Mockingbird.
OP, I love the name Clover!

Agree with Scout and Sailor. Gorgeous names!
Mine are both girls' names as well - Willow and Wren. Love them but don't have the balls... I told my mum I was thinking about the name Wren if this bubba comes out pink and she nearly had a meltdown. Wish I'd kept my mouth shut. Mums
