    Today (well the other day at a playgroup) I heard the name Boris & thought I'm surprised you called your baby that when our current mayor is the ever-so-slightly-eccentric-with-mad-hair Boris Johnson, but if it weren't for him it might be cute on a baby!

    I've always liked the name Lyndsey/Lindsay/Lindsey/Linsey... and think it's so soft & pretty everytime i hear it. Wonder why it's not used more often?

    Tate is really cute... big :thumbup: from me! Especially if there is a family connection! I don't think it's very common in the US... i've only heard it one time (and that was on a TV commercial!).

    If we have a daughter she is Alice, but in the future if we have another daughter she is Willow <3 I think it's beautiful, plus I was HUGE Buffy fan

    lol - i didn't know it was from Buffy - that's funny. i've just heard it from Sarah Palin's kid, and to be honest, i also don't like Bristol as a children's name (and i can't remember her other kids' names), but that's just me - no offense to Sarah Palin. :)


    Today I heard the name Adele, and I kinda like it.

    Today I heard the name Cohen and I think it's nice and different, although it's not my style so I wouldn't use it myself.

    I heard the name GUY and frankly I think it is horrible, really it's like "I was talking to this guy who was called Guy."

    Some people. I'm a fan of Mad TV and I laugh at this name "Bunifa Latifah Halifah Sharifa Jackson" the character is also a hoot :p

    The other day I found out Anne Frank's name was Annelies Marie adorable.

    I worked with a kid called Scott, which is fine, except his second name was Land! No joke! Haha always made me giggle, but I kinda liked it. I always wondered if his parents had more - like Finn or Grace? :)
    Also heard of La-a ( pronouced la dash a) and thought, no, just no. Ladasha is perfectly nice, but the spelling?! Poor wee soul. :( x
