    If its any consolation, I adore that name for a girl! Love love love it!! And if you do as well, do not let anyone change your mind.

    DS is Jack and our family hated it, said it was an old mans name but they never told me that until months after he was born and said they couldn't imagine him being named anything else.

    If it's Ainsley, then yes

    I know of 3 Ainsley's over my time. All girls and all blondes. DD is a brunette like me though.

    We refused to tell anyone the name we chose until our daughter was born. I was doing relief teaching, so I had a LOT of kids wanting to know.

    I figured that I really didn't want to hear peoples' opinions... we were definitely set on the name... and I didn't think they'd say anything negative once she was born. Was right - we've only had positive or neutral (think "oh, how do you spell that?) etc. comments.

    People usually actually say either nothing, or "Oh, that's lovely," or something along those lines.

    I often tell them that I think it's bogan and that I shouldn't have been allowed to name a child as a 19-year-old. lol. So it's me being negative.

    I never heard anyone voice any negative opinions about DD's name. She is named after my much loved and much missed Granny, and I tell people this, perhaps people are simply afraid of dissing the dead!

    I have had a few comments about DS's name being "boring" and "common". It was previously a common name, but has not made the top 20 for many years now. Ironically, the person who most frequently criticised our choice for DS named their son Lachlan, which was the most popular name for the year he was born.

    Gahhh bugger what anyone thinks! FWIW I love Jamie and Evangeline! Maxwell is cute too, I had a friend called Maxwell (female) when growing up..

    I named my latest addition Archer Daniel, I copped heaps for it. Who cares anyway, I love Archer - different but not out there- and Daniel has been a fave of mine forever! Love the song and love my Uncle who had that name.

    People will pick at anything given the chance.. Just name your baby and let them suffer if they're silly enough to get their undies in a twist over it.


    Ohhhh and you should've heard the uproar in my family over my daughters name, Ariel! Sheesh, it is still going on 3 years later..

    My mil spells my sons name wrong on purpose to prove a point to me that she thinks i spelt it wrong. Even though I only changed 1 letter & that variation is actually the Irish correct spelling of the name. Her protest as she never liked it & turned her nose up at it from the start.

    Thanks & I don't think Jamie is feminine at all!
