I love my choice of names for my children. Alyssa is unusual without being too crazy and lots of her friends can easily say it and spell it. Her Great Grandad however insists it isn't a real name and continues to call her Lisa.
Her middle name is Bryony which wasn't my favourite of names I have to admit to start off with mostly because people pronounce it as briny like the salty sea. I can't help but sing "beautiful briny sea" when I say it. Now though, I love it.
Her initials are ABS ~ yes, like Anti-lock Braking System. My little way of linking her to how I had met her dad through a common love of cars. It was either that or her name may have been Nova, Saxo or Ferrari. Needless to say, I went with Alyssa~ much prettier! I did have over 60 names on the list for her though when she was born.
Harvey was the only boys name we could agree on. Don't really know where it came from....
Bailey could have been another option now I've mentioned it along with Lambrini, Blossom and Vimto if he'd turned out to be a girl. (I'm joking!)
"What about if I didn't want to be Harvey anymore? What about if I wanted to be called Boris?"
I couldn't imagine Harvey being called Boris for some reason. Not because it isn't a good name but that I really think once you've named your baby, another name just wouldn't suit them. I did try calling him Boris for the afternoon but he didn't answer to it. (Mind you, he ignores me when I say Harvey too so perhaps that's not his name either.) Comments please on what his 'real' name is and one that he will respond to would be good for me. Albert perhaps, Winston maybe or he may be named after the Royal baby and be called Brian.
Yes, Harvey believes George Alexander Louis is actually called Brian.
avoiding the washing up and thinking about names.
