Mine from this
and my sister's from this
Can anyone guess what her name is? Does anyone actually remember this programme?!
My middle name is Jane (same as my Mum's-very original!) and my sister was forever teasing me by calling me Plain Jane, especially at the time of Jane Harris in Neighbours. It could have been worse....if I had been a boy I would have been called Barry!
For Girl B and Middle B we got our inspiration from a book of baby names, although my eldest niece originally suggested our daughter's name. Tidgy was almost called Bobby, which I loved, but hubby would only allow it if he could have 'Robson' as his middle name. I toyed with the idea even though I hate football but I could see it would be important to hubby, being a lifelong ITFC fan. I just couldn't do that to my son though. What would have happened if he was a Canaries supporter?! I also had visions of him being featured in the Evening Star for his unusual name and being ridiculed forever more.
How did your parents choose your name? How did you choose your children's names? Baby names book or something less conventional?
