    I love boy names for a girl. Blair is gorgeous, I also love Blake. Stevie and Andy are cute too!

    Hunter & Jackson are my favorites. Although there's something cute about River too! Xx

    Hunter an Jackson were the names we had chosen for a boy but with this crappy surname I am stuck with neither names go well so we cant use them. Why have they been vetoed? They are lovely names

    Also still in ttc but my husband and I have a massive list of vetoed names, some 'normal' but vetoed for various reasons and others a bit more unusual. Including James, Sebastian, River, Hazel, Kate, Henrietta, Edward, Ivy, Iris, Oscar, Rhys, Huw, Sage.

    As a side note I would hate to have a traditionally 'boys' name. My name is in no way a male name and yet in my previous job all my post came addressed to 'Mr' and it drove me crazy. To have a name that would add further confusion would have been awful. Having said that I like Stevie for a girl, but as the shortening from Stephanie rather than as a name in itself.

    See I would always assume that Stevie is a girls name, Like Stevie Nicks, or shortened of Stephanie. ... And it's only been used as a boys name to be some kind of cutesy form of Steven.


    A name I LOVE and have loved ever since reading Return of the Native at school is Thomasin. OH hates it. :-(
