Seems like a good test to avoid the super popular names!

DD1 nope, DD2 not either. DH and DS are, Not mine though! Mind you the only place I've found mine was on a necklace at Jamaica Inn, and DD1 was one of fewer than 3 named in the UK the year she was born.

I may have to get ours made up.

Just came across this.
Zombie thread.

Yes my DDs name is on here.
She can't drink coke yet, but might buy it for my DP!

Got my name but spelt differently.
Got my Dads, Mums, sisters and DPs names too.

I might customise one for myself when it comes around to them later this summer.

Could do with a nice cool Cherry Cola right now .smile

Didn't realise that poppydaisy that makes sense now I thought there was some random names on there

poppydaisy Tue 21-May-13 10:33:39

Wow, didn't know that! We don't really buy coke due to it being basically pure sugar, but that would be another reason to avoid it!

Weegiemum Tue 21-May-13 09:36:37

My girls are, my boy isn't.

But we avoid Coca-Cola anyway due to their crappy policies worldwide, Killercoke it's not a big deal to us, we won't buy it anyway.

They aren't using the current top 100 baby names but the top 150 most popular names over the past 30-40 years!

Wishfulmakeupping Tue 21-May-13 09:25:32

Mine and OH names there but dd's isn't which surprises me as its in top 100 girl names

poppydaisy Tue 21-May-13 09:19:06

In fact, they use the most popular 150 names amongst all generations -have just looked at the names and they're indeed all very popular.

poppydaisy Tue 21-May-13 09:16:18

Coke will obviously only choose to print common names - so they can sell to lots of coke!

So, by definition, if your name is on their bottles, you're likely to share a name with lots of others. No surprises there really imo.

MrsMaryCooper Tue 21-May-13 08:22:46

mine is and DS, DH has a rarer spelling so I doubt it

bruffin Tue 21-May-13 08:19:42

Got both dcs the other day. They collect bottles/cans anyway so nice to add to their collection.

thistlelicker Tue 21-May-13 08:13:27

I won't get my name on a bottle due
To the spelling! I'm rather sad about it haha

Breezy1985 Tue 21-May-13 08:11:10

DS is but he's got a top 10 name which has been in the top ten years.

No coke bottles for me or DD, I'm surprised about mine as I thought it was popular, knew there wouldn't be DD's her name is unusual.

peachypips Mon 20-May-13 22:08:12

I know I'm not supposed to do this, but I don't care. Our names are relatively common and only DH on the list. He is Paul, I am Joanna, then DSs are Zachary and Charlie. Weirdness.

cherhorowitz Mon 20-May-13 22:02:56

Just checked the UK list. Youngest DD's name isn't on there! I'm surprised as it was on the Top 10 list of baby names the last I checked.

cherhorowitz Mon 20-May-13 22:00:41

Mine and DP's names are. Youngest DD a maybe as I haven't found one yet but it's a pretty common name so probably but eldest DD probably not.

GaryBuseysTeeth Mon 20-May-13 21:57:48

DH is, DS isn't, nor are any of the names we're considering for DS2...there's more chance of hell freezing over than finding my name on one!

<brainbleach> for Preposterous!

Preposteroushypothesis Mon 20-May-13 21:34:52

Sooooo...before I saw the lists were on this thread I just tried to google if DDs name is on a coke bottle...I have discovered that there is a porn star with her name who does something presumably unsavoury with a coke bottle...I am now mentally scarred!

olivertheoctopus Sun 12-May-13 22:05:13

Neither of my DCs names are on the list.

JollyOrangeGiant Sun 12-May-13 18:40:57

DH and I are both on coke bottles. DS is not.

Prospective names for DC2 are not on the list either.

diddl Sun 12-May-13 18:35:37

Are people buying these, then?

What's the point of them?

louisianablue2000 Sun 12-May-13 17:33:23

DH and I can get Coke bottles but the DC can't. Which is good because we have told them coke is for grown-ups (like wine wine), sadly DD1 is now onto us!

Slavetothechild Sun 12-May-13 17:32:54

One 1 of the 5 has a coke name sad and then it's a different spelling .

nooka Sun 12-May-13 17:13:30

I've never come across my name on anything personalised and don't expect I ever will. I was however surprised that neither of my children's names on the UK list, as they are both pretty popular and have been for the last ten years. However dh's name is there, which makes me think that the demographic they looked at for names was adults not children (dh's name v popular in the 70s).
