Avah'Riane
Tyla-Jay (girl)
Harijak (as in Harry Jack, not a mixed heritage baby from photo/surname)
Riley-Gareth
Teejai (boy)
Ocean (girl)
And that old favourite....Nevaeh : )

FellNel Mon 04-Mar-13 15:34:18

FellNel Mon 04-Mar-13 15:33:37

How do you pronounce Nevaeh? It's very tricky.

ripsishere Mon 04-Mar-13 03:42:39

DD had a Nevaeh with a sister princess and another Angel at her last school.
At this one she has
Fanny Pong
Fanny Kok and best of all Minge someone or other.

NEVAEH NEVAEH NEVAEH !!!! love it!!

The apostrophe seems to be the new hyphen where names are concerned. I think it's still mostly chosen by parents who have an African-Caribbean heritage but it will spread and become pretty commonplace among working class white people eventually, as they are often swayed by black popular culture.

No offence taken hazel - it wasn't planned, just happened to be in the shopping centre when the photographer was there.

lula I'm guessing it's Ava then Rhianne just with unique spelling grin

Quite like Maisie - Mae. Would have thought Acer would have been a boys name. Perhaps she was conceived with the help of a laptop.

Female is when the haven't chosen a name! we had a female at school, well she had a name but on her birth cert it said female. stupid parents couldn't pick a name and sort out the admin????

Some of these names are truly hideous! Klamidia??!! Why didn't the registrar stop them? I like Frank though.

I am from South London.

NONE of those names surprises me! I read the list thinking, yes, and? I have clearly been round here too long. <Disclaimer- despite my location, my DCs have UK names with regular spellings>

oi whats wrong with Brian?

He's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy

raisah Sat 02-Mar-13 07:29:48

I heard Trixabelle shouted out across the hall at the local music group.

Shauvaun - why mutilate the spelling of a classic name?

Candice (Candy is her nn)

LulaPalooza Fri 01-Mar-13 17:03:06

How the actual fuck do you pronounce "Avah'Riane"?

happychappy I actually don't believe you about some of those - they are well-known to be urban myths hmm

OkayHazel Fri 01-Mar-13 16:48:35

Maybe it just says something about the types of parents who enter their babies into these competitions! (sorry OP)

happychappyJB Fri 01-Mar-13 16:33:36

I am a teacher and you should see some of the names we get in school -

Jedi (seriously)
Female (pronounced Fem-ah-lee)
Kofi (for a short white ginger kid!)
Klamidia (so not joking - it's practically abuse!)

It's so bad!

maidmarian What on earth is wrong with Frank?

FriggFRIGGisPoorlySick Fri 01-Mar-13 12:26:34

I like Acer and Oakley...

the other names are just,well,I'm not surprised to see them in a 'judge-my-baby-soley-on-their-outer-beauty-and-then-give-me-money-competion'. hmm

There won't be any confusion over nursery coat pegs. Refreshing to see such variety!

I know a Lottee-Lou. Or is it Lottee Lu? Must check...
