    Waggers - Percy is a nice name. I don't see anything wrong with it.

    I don't see anything wrong with many of the names you ladies have chosen! I can't believe how crazy people are about names they don't approve of!

    BlueLips- Evie is such a beautiful name. I think it's timeless. I'm truly surprised anybody has said anything negative about that name.

    melimum- I hate when people say "it's not a grown up name." What on earth is a grown up name? Lol

    I think I need to build up the courage to use the name Saige. It's hard when people make it sound like you're doing the worst thing for your child.

    Does your mum realise she admitted she's rude?

    The only negative comment we got for DD1's name was "Oh, did you name her after the Sex and the City character?" Hell no, I hate that show. She's named after a Shakespearean character.

    A few people looked at us askance when we named DD2 because her name is pretty similar to DD1's. My brother was pretty outspoken about it, but then I was pretty outspoken about the name he gave his DS1, so fair enough. Lol

    *eta: forgot to mention, DD2's middle name was a contender for her first name until my sister blurted out that the name sounded "vaginal". She's still mortified about that one.

    My BIL and brother are the same. My brother always says "why didn't you name DS something normal? Something like Alexander or Phillip?" He's very old school though. Those names aren't my cup of tea. I don't know why it's so hard for some people to understand that we all have different taste.

    Not really

    I stopped telling people after this.

    And waggers I think Percy is sweet!
    We love the name Evie! We saw a little boy calling after his sister (at a resort we stayed at in Fiji) and he said "come on Evie" and DF and I just looked at each other and smiled, we agreed that its a beautiful name.

    The only trouble we have had is trying to find a longer name that we can use Evie as a nickname for... Not too many choices!

    The Evie's I know are E.velyn G.enevieve and E.van. If you wanted a short name, E.va would work (I live that name!)

    Love the name Eva to use Evie as nickname for and that's the one we have chosen for now but I worry about how it sounds with our surname - it kind of makes a new word and its not nice lol. Not able to use Evelyn because that's my cousins name. I am starting to like Evan... Hmm

    We are still TTC but a friend did ask what names we were thinking of and we got lots of eyebrow raising! She even raised her eyebrows at Alexandra!
    I swear the other name, Temperance, got less of an eyebrow raise

    Well after reading all of your posts, it has made me realize that you can't win. Some will love the name, some will like the name and the others will hate it.
    I've decided to go ahead with the name Saige and it has made me so happy. I'm much more relaxed now : )
