    When you were little/a teenager.


    Just wondering how much people's opinions on names has changed over the years. We all sit there wondering what our future children will be called, and come up with names we like and swear we'll name our children that!

    How much has your mind changed since then?

    For example, I always thought I'd have a boy called James and a girl called Brooke.
    My OH's name is James and he hates it, so we called our DS Logan James, and if we have a girl we're pretty set on Lily/Lillian.

    I think the names I used to like no longer apply as I never imagined I’d marry into the surname that I did! My maiden name was a very common English name that basically goes with everything. My married name is quite a mouthful and a very obviously Spanish name. So a lot of my opinions have changed for those reasons

    When I was little I lived around the corner from a girl called Emilia and always loved her name and still loved it aged 25 when I had my daughter

    I watched the tudors on bbc aged 17/18 and fell in love with the name Henry. This year aged 29 I had my second and wanted Henry for a boy but had a girl

    General opinions did change though, I loved lily but a friend called her dog lily. The dog died years ago but I still don't like it for a person anymore.

    I met a little girl named Winter when I was 18 and thought it was the best name ever. Swore I would name any future daughter Winter. Still haven't changed my mind! Lucky hubby loves it too.

    Now, when I was 13/14, I swore I would name any future daughter Star or Sparkle... but that changed hahaha

    I've never been super drawn to any boy names so lucky I'm not having a boy lol

    Lydia is the name I had chosen for a girl when I was younger. Never had boys names picked out as I always presumed I'd have girls like my mum... I had 2 boys haha

    I've gone off Lydia now so it's back to the drawing board! Xx

    Its safe to say i have definitely changed my mind now and i no longer am a fan of Lucy. (no offence to anyone called Lucy)
    I didn't have any names for a boy.

    As a teenager I wanted names like - Skye (my sisters name now haha she's 7), River, Tia, Angel. God no not now. (no offense to anyone). My daughter is called Scarlett.
    Never gave much thought to boys. My son is Lucas, hubby's choice I wanted Finley but he didn't want it. We was set on Cody when I got pregnant the first time, but had a MC and then my cousin took the name... So couldn't have it for future.

    I was always adamant I'd have twin girls called Alba and Indie. I have 2 boys lol. Currently have another baby on the way but my partner totally hates both names if we have a girl. Now my imaginary twin girls would be Sophia and Isabella (he hates both of those too :( ) xx

    I have gone through SO many stages of name choices throughout my life. Names are one of my autistic passions :)

    I had favourite names set in stone until I met D and then had to change them as our surname has an ā€˜sā€™ sound in the middle so that ruled out a lot of pretty names for us!

    No Seraphina or Hester for us!

    To be fair they are pretty similar I always loved Welsh names and older name so ones popular in the 40s and this was before my love of history. They have changed over the years from meeting people with the name who were just awful people so I didn't want to name my children after them nd have to be reminded of them but I love out choices just need to agree in another boys name so we have 2 picked out for girl and only one for a boy at the moment.
    Our girls are Evelyn Grace
    Lilly Elizabeth
    Our boy is Frank Owien
