I think that we should have a rule on Nametalk that once a child is born and named, we don’t say anything negative about his or her name.
Of course we can be perfectly honest about names we don’t like before a baby is named. [name]Rollo[/name], I love [name]Chloe[/name] [name]Skye[/name]. .[/quote]
Thank you [name]Susan[/name] lovely to have your support of [name]Chloe[/name]'s name. I love it and my daughter has loved both [name]Chloe[/name] and [name]Skye[/name] for a long time.
I think that it would be a good rule not to comment on a child that is already named just in case someone is offended by a comment.
It is okay though [name]Meryl[/name] your comment didn’t worry me.
I agree that while [name]Imogen[/name] has its merits it doesn’t seem to work well with [name]Chloe[/name]. I feel that a short, classic feminine but not frilly name possibly with the same roots as [name]Chloe[/name] would suit.
Daughter’s DH doesn’t like names that can be boy’s names eg [name]Georgina[/name] nn [name]Georgie[/name] or unisex or nursing home names. (Although [name]Imogen[/name] could be in the last category I suppose).
