    My surname is Crossley. OH is adamant first names can't end in a 'y' or 'ie' because there'd be too many 'i' sounds in the name. What does everyone else think about this? Oh and nothing beginning with a 'C'. OH's first name is Christopher and with Crossley for a surname, I get where he's coming from but ruling out a lot of nice names :/ xxx

    I think Charlie Crossley sounds fine! I've gone through lots of ie and y names in my head, and they all sound fine to me.

    I think Chloe is a step too far though as that sounds like a tongue-twister! Charlie would be OK if everyman and his dog didn't choose it. xxx
