    We have been having a bit of a re think with names tonight.

    I really like Elton but Jase thinks he will get teased at school, what do you think?

    Also we like Ellis, but i think it sounds like a girls name. What you think?

    Thanks

    Oh gosh, names, what a pickle.
    We've been talking about names for ages but can't decide on anything because I feel like I have to physically see the kid before I commit a name to it.
    Some kids just don't look like an Elton or an Ellis, if you know what I mean. I do like the name Ellis though.

    I agree with kx go with what is right for you :D

    we were the same though .... when we came to some names we considered the bullying of names and said no .... hard isn't it.

    think with Elton it matters what surname the child will have!

    purely Elton doesn't look for me as a reason to get bullied!

    we have several favourites and I also thought we will know when we can see her/him as this is what happenend when I was born, my mother told me!

    we even do not know the gender 100% :dohh:

    makes it even more difficult!

    Not now one of Dales relatives has had a Chloe! He wants something not in the family.:dohh:

    I liked Ruby, Katie and Olivia but everyone has had their tuppence worth on them.

    Layla go with what u and Jase like, f*ck everyone else as there is always going to be someone who doesn't like your choice.

    I agree with KX also,

    Loads of people keep putting me and chris down about the name we have chosen especially his mam.

    We have just turned round and said you have had your children and chose your own names its our turn now so like it or lump it.

    Stef xx

    I think, it is not nice of people to try to put u off a name!

    finally, it is your baby and you know it best and therefore you know best what name fits for it!

    I do not see anything wrong with Elton Barber :hi:
    sounds good to me!

    and tbh if you would exclude every single name of all celebrities there would not be much choice left!

    I like Ellis and I don't think it sounds too girly. I'm having a problem with my sprog's surname, I really don't want it to have OHs surname coz I really hate it, on the other hand that's what he wants and he won't consider anything else. grrr, men!

    I do like the name Elton, but everytime I hear that name I do instantly think of Elton John. Ellis is a nice name, to be honest I thought it was a girls name, there is a lady by that name at my hairdressers.

    I luv the name Lincoln ( my brothers name), I really really like that name. If I was blessed with another boy I would name him Aaron.

    People everywhere are going to have an opinion on what name you pick. When I told people I was naming my 1st son Stratton, I got alot of people saying this and that.

    The best thing for you and Jase is to pick a name that you both really like and stuff what other people say. It is your child.

    Best of luck with what ever name you choose. :hugs:
