    This baby will be Lincoln if it's a boy

    I expect to cop a bit of flack for my girl name if bub's a girl, but I don't care. If it's a girl she will be Holly Belle. I will cop flack because she's due on christmas day, and it's SO over the top christmasy people will be like Really? And also because my youngest now is Ben, So I will have Ben and Holly. Lol. But meh, we love the name and we're sticking with it. Bell is my maiden name, so it has special meaning (honouring my deceased father) rather than just being a ridiculously over the top cute christmas name

    (Belle is the middle name by the way, her name won't be Holly-Belle just Holly)

    Lincoln is freaking awesome!

    DS has a Marcia in his kinder class. Every time I hear her name I cringe and chant "Marcia Marcia Marcia" to myself.

    I know a girl who was born on Christmas Day, and her parents named her Natalie. So you wouldn't be the first to give your Christmas baby a Christmassy name! I like your chosen name actually, think it's pretty

    I actually enjoy that parallel. I love Christmas though! I once knew a boy named Noel Carrol.

    I toyed with the idea of naming DD Summer. She was due on December 1st, and whenever she was born would have been the 'first day of Summer'. But I loved the name I gave her more

    The school I work at this year in Prep have a Cecil, an Allan, a Leslie (boy) and a Herbert!

    Unusual names are not for me. I grew up with an uncommon given name and what I wouldn't have given to have a 'regular' name, especially at school.

    They're unusual now, but I think those sort of names would have been quite common in my parents and grandparents day. Not the sort of names I'm too fond of myself, although I wouldn't call them "horrible" as such.

    I think Holly Belle is so beautiful that I hope you have a girl, or else I hope you will consider it for a boy :-)

    What is it with all these old fashioned names making a comeback?? I wouldn't call them horrible, I'd call them hideous (especially Cecil/Herbert)!!!
