And said, "you have seven seconds to name this child," what would your off-the-top-of-my-head response be? (Besides, obviously, wondering who this loon passing a baby around is.)

Eliza ( My would be Eliza is sitting on my lap, willy and all!)

Astrid. No, Sarah. No, Amber. You may need to reduce the time limit grin Astrid was my first thought though.

Oooh, these are good!

I'm having DD in May and we have a name in mind, but I don't know if I LOVE it or if it's just the best I can come up with iyswim. So I thought I'd ask what people's first reactions to "name a girl" are. Keep 'em coming! smile

Theodora

That's a surprise, it's not even on my list! Just popped into my head smile

Susannah, at the moment. Which wasn't on the list at all when I was expecting DD less than a year ago, so we'll see if it's in the running if and when DC2 happens...

Meredith

Harper. DP wouldn't allow it though. In fact, he wouldn't allow it before the Beckham's used it and definitely wouldn't allow it afterwards.

So we'd go with Seren, which I seriously love smile

No-one ever going to do that to me again, but my girls were Katherine and Rachel within seconds.

I also love Charis, Hope, Louise/a and Elaine.

Also Eliza, Meredith and Astrid were all names on our list for dd.

Is it for me? If so, Mara. Or Caitlin.

If not, Katya, which I love but doesn't go with my surname.
