Not much sounds good with our surname either. I love Woody, but Woody [body of water] sounds ridiculous. I like Niall but it rhymes with DH's name. I like Rufus, but DH has vetoed.

Not that I've noticed in nsw. Maybe vic? It's hard to get national stats.

It's not a name I've been hearing about at all. The only one I know is 35.

Apparently it's 66th nationally. Only 400 or so born this year. http://www.mccrindle.com.au/resources/B ... rindle.pdf Page 16 I think it was.

Woody as a first name? does that mean erection anywhere else?

Yes, but it's also a name (think of the Toy Story movies.) Not a common name here though, I don't think I know any Woodys.

Hehe, hadn't even thought if that! We were on more of a Woody Guthrie train of thought, but that's definitely another good reason it won't get used!

A lot of our friends and family have already used names I would otherwise think we're cool, like Levi, Emmerson, Forrest, Austin, Cody. I'm sure there are more!

Our other girl choice was anushka.
In my heart I am Rascalpup, a name awarded during battle with one persistent spammer. I like to think ironside but with sarcasm rather than an axe.

Slightly horrified by my huge number of posts.

We have an Imogen (which no-one seems to be able to pronounce for some reason) but I also had Abigail, Amelia, Esme and Madeline on the list for girls. Really liked Ivy but we have a V surname.

If we had a boy he would have been Max (Maxwell is nice too) or Finley.

I vaguely remember this from high school... Not heard it used for that since then though!

Woodrow is a name you don't hear often enough I think :D

We would have had a Charlie George if we'd had a boy.

I also like Noah, Micah and Eli for boys but DH vetoed both Noah and Micah lol.

Our girls names were chosen right from before we knew we were having DD1, well before we knew she was a girl anyway. We chose two sets of names in case she didn't look like a Grace Elizabeth when born. Though funnily enough I always imagined Grace Elizabeth being blond and Daisy Rose being brunette (which is what they are) but DH said he imagined them the other way round but was still sold on GE when she was actually born. We added Erica to Daisy Rose as she was born a month after my grandad (Eric) died.

I also like the names Tabitha, Martha, Alexia, for girls.

Wow this has moved on a lot...

Can't go with Gotham, it is the name of the next village to where I grew up, just would not work!

Love wren
Martha is lovely too but too close to my name
Love Noah but dh isn't keen, plenty of time to try to convince him though
I discovered name berry yesterday, was looking at Cornish names, like elowen but not sure how to say it?? Slight problem.

We could have gone with Gautham as a first name for a boy - right origin. But one of our criteria was that names had to be sensible/pronounceable/spellable to my hypothetical great aunt who has never left the home counties, so it didn't make the final shortlist!

What about Eirlys? (think that's how it's spelt) think it's Welsh, it's my friends little girls Middle na e lol. Think it's pronounced air-lis but can never remember if that's quite right.

Elowen is pronounced as its read -El-lo-en

Lowenna is another lovely cornish name for girls. (Low-en-a)

My favourite Cornish boys names are Jago and Piran. Jago is cornish for James, which is my absolute favourite boys name, but with the surname Brown, dh just won't entertain the name James!
