I've always liked Amber. Such a pretty and classic name, but unfortunately it has the stripper connotation too which is such a shame. I also like Amberly, but I guess people would say it sounds like a... I don't know, a high-class prostitute?
I agree with the PP who said that kids should be named something that will allow them to be taken seriously as adults, especially in a professional capacity.

After seeing 3 "Sophie"s in a row (including mine) at the playground one morning, I vowed to never use another top-ten name.
I can't bring myself to use any "A" names as my surname is a noun and I don't like the look/idea of " A. Cxxx"
Also can't use any "C" or "K" names because my surname starts with "C" and I don't like the same starting syllable!
Geez I'm fussy!

I've always loved the name Kirra-Lee but DH would never agree to it.

I have always loved Jessica, Imogen and Lily.
I married a man with the surname 'Simpson' so Jessica is out.
Imogen has become way too common.
My damn cousin named her daughter Lily.

I'm not really all that fussed by names so don't have any to add.. But my husband REALLY wanted to call our son Kalel (superman) ... Of course I put my foot down!
I guess the only name I like but probably wouldn't use (plus were not having any more kids!) would be Asajj or Asoka (from star wars) I love the way they sound and the way they are spelt

My ex partner (and DDs bio) wanted to call a boy Jed Ian. His surname was Knights. You can see why I put the kibosh on that.

As you can probably tell my name is Jacqui-Lea (with a hyphen) and it absolutely astounds me how many adults do not know what that is! Everyday at work I spell my email address and I have to say "hyphen which is the middle dash" or "two over from the backspace key" therefore I will not use a hypen in my children's names. I may carry on the Lea... However, I will teach my children what a hyphen is!!!
