What do you think of this name?
My husband’s favourite name is [name]Amelia[/name] and has been for the six years I’ve been married to him. It’s the only name he will say he likes, he screws his nose up at ALL my suggestions.
My only problem with [name]Amelia[/name] is it’s immense popularity here in the UK. It’s really put me off it, especially as I’ve been such a name nerd all my life, it seems so disappointing to finally have a child and give her the same name everyone else is choosing.
He knows how I feel and is happy for me to pick something else but I feel bad not using the one name he loves
So I’ve mentioned in the past some alternatives and then suddenly today he says that he actually quite likes [name]Camellia[/name]!! This is a big deal for him!
So here are my questions for you berries…
What do you think of the name [name]Camellia[/name]?
What category of names would you put it in?
What does it bring to your mind?
Which spelling do you prefer, [name]Camellia[/name]/[name]Camelia[/name]?
Does anyone know how to find out how many babies were given this name in the UK last year?
[name]Do[/name] you have any middle name suggestions?
[name]Do[/name] you have any nickname suggestions?
What would you name her siblings?
[name]How[/name] does it compare to my current favourite, [name]Clara[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name]?
Does it match up to [name]Amelia[/name]? Is it better/worse?
PS I’m not currently pregnant but we’re planning to have our first baby next year, all being well. This is the only site where I can talk about names before TTC and not have people think I’m strange hehe
