    No kids, but I help out with a guide unit (believe US folks call it girl scouts) and we've doubled up on Mia and Rachel and tripled up on Charlotte. That's out of 15 girls aged 10-12. Yeah, it gets...

    I've always had a soft spot for Warren, it's cute on a boy and handsome on a man. Wallace is a bit too old-fashioned for my tastes, and the nn Wally isn't exactly endearing (it might be a regional...

    Christmas-themed names - tacky or cute?

    I was chatting to a colleague the other day who's expecting a little girl in mid-December. Her husband thinks it would be cute to use a Christmas themed name - Holly, Eve, Ivy, Belle were all ones...

    Juno - female
    Kieran - male, but I've come across female Kirans, so in that spelling I'd be unsure.

    Carson - male
    Rowan - could equally picture this on either
    Elliott - male ...

    I'd also add that places that are meaningful to you can be a good source of a penname. If you love London, how about using James Hyde, after two of the parks there? Or if you went on honeymoon in...

    1. I'd say early July, as late July and August are school holidays over here, so there'll be tons of families with kids about. Early July would still be busy, but probably marginally less so.
