Hi all. Still relatively new here. I don’t know if this has been done before, but I’m really interested to know, are there any names you would totally name your child but can’t? What are they and why? Here are mine:
Charlie. I am head over heels for this name. [name_f]My[/name_f] parents were going to call my younger brother [name_u]Charlie[/name_u], and I was gutted when they didn’t. It was my Great-Grandads name and he was a war hero, so I’d love to honour him. However, my husband HATES THE NAME. No matter how much I beg and plead, he just hates it. I’d even use it for a baby girl, but he won’t have that either. Sadly we won’t be using [name_u]Charlie[/name_u].
Paige. I think it’s gentle, feminine, warm and kind. However, everyone seems to think it’s trashy I live in [name_f]England[/name_f] and it’s not really been used here since mid-90s. Apparently it has b*tchy schoolgirl vibes. It upsets me. I can’t bring myself to pick a name that people hate so much.
Stephanie. Adored this name since I was little - I used to call my dolls and barbies [name_f]Stephanie[/name_f], but now it just feels terribly dated, and not in the nice way that [name_f]Edith[/name_f] or [name_f]Agnes[/name_f] or [name_f]Ivy[/name_f] are dated. Is [name_f]Stephanie[/name_f] too obsolete?
Constance. The first time I suggested this, my husband thought I’d said ‘consonants’ and now he can’t get this out of his head! He laughs at it! I think it’s smart and professional. He just thinks it’s pretentious.
5. [name_f]Sarah[/name_f]. There is nothing wrong with this name at all. So WHY do my family think I’m mad to want it?! To me, [name_f]Sarah[/name_f] is a strong-willed, ambitious, successful girl. I would love a baby [name_f]Sarah[/name_f] but my husband would just never, ever agree.
