    Found out this week that we are having another girl - was really set on the name Ella until dh pointed out that we are not the smallest of people and if she inherits our build she'll get called Ellaphant at school - having been bullied a lot for my weight (amongst other things) at school I dont want to help them!! :)
    I already have Thomas, Sophie and Benjamin - tend to go for more traditional English names but as this is our last child fancy soemthing a little unusual - love names like Ruby but that is going to become very common with celebs using it and the song etc.
    Surname begins with an M so dont want first name to and dont want an S as already haev Sophie

    any ideas :) really struggling now and cant find my baby name books anywhere!

    Rebekah

    My favourite girl's name at the moment is Erica - not particularly old fashioned though.

    My DD (4 months) is called Ella and I am not tiny either - her being called Ellaphant, has never ever crossed my mind - I think this is a very tiny possibility - go with the name you love as its beautiful (not that I'm biased!)

    Suzie is a good name. But i am biased. I'm technically Suzanne, but i've been Suzie to everyone for years.

    I like Ella, i'd go for it. If people are gonna be mean then they'll find a way no matter the name!
    i got called Miss Blobby. - not name linked at all!

    Though i'm sure they'll be fine anyway!
