I have a lovely surname, one i have no intention of parting with even when I get the ring on my finger. I am minded for our off spring to have my OH's surname, but unfortunately this is Bate.What names can I come up with to soften the Bate?

There was a Mr Bate at school and he always got called master bate. I would worry about that but most surnames have potential nicknames.

I also like Isobelle, Tabitha, Leona, Lucas, Kieran, Ethan.

This thread has cheered me up enormously! mybe I should change it
to worst name you could pair with Bate.

In which case and so as you can keep your family nickname - maybe Norry? (To be pronounced with the stress on the 'o') wink grin

I quite like Stair-Bate

Cos you are thrown off the main scent for a minute.

Gaol-Bate

SEEEEEERIOUSLY I know you aren't too keen on the ol' double barrelling and I agree normally, but put in your lovelysurname-bate.
