I don't think Charlton is awful, but I was hoping for something more "clunky-vintage" like their daughter's name. Still, Robbie is crazy 99% of the time, so it could've been a lot worse!

I don't hate my name - it's pretty, has a nice meaning and is easy to spell and pronounce. It is also a family name. What I do hate is its popularity. Sophie has been in the top 10 here in the UK...

I'm from the UK, and would pronounce it tee-gan. I've never met anyone with this name, but I think spelling it Teagan is more common.
I would also pronounce Megan as meg-an, never heard mee-gan,...

Robbie and Ayda have a son! Hope they pick an equally awesome name for this one - their daughter is Theodora Rose (how cute is that?!) They really do make very cute babies!

Polina - Unusual, gives off an exotic feel to me, maybe Eastern European? I imagine a tall, pretty girl who loves to explore the world, fluent in many languages. I think the nn Polly would be really...

Owning a tabby cat myself, I don't think I would actually use it, but I do think it's really cool, vintage and spunky! It does give off a bit of a witchy feel, don't know whether that would bother...

@lowslash - you are right, it is mentioned in Firefly about the Mal meaning bad thing. It really doesn't bother me; and if it bothered the kid, then they could go by a different nn. I agree also that...
I prefer Forrest - no reason other than it looks right, more like a name, if that makes sense. I so wish I could use this name - I think it's so handsome and outdoorsy but it's the name of the local...
I would love, love, love to use George, but it's just outside the top 10 here (stupid Prince! - I don't really mean that, he is totally adorable!)
Others I love that are too popular:

Thanks for the replies so far! Seems like Calvin's winning by a landslide! Interesting about Mal meaning bad in French and Spanish - that never occurred to me. But, I don't think it's that big of a...

I love both these names, but my control-freak self will not allow me to have both in my short list (I know I'm weird, but I like all my names to be very distinct, and these are too similar.) So, I...

Elowen - I know it's a NB fave, but when I say it, it sounds more like I'm trying to say "Hello Wen", but in a Cockney accent, dropping the H (and I'm not even a Londoner, lol!) I think it's all...
You just described me to a tee! I have quite an active imagination, suffer from anxiety and I am extremely introverted and anti-social. I had imaginary friends, similar to how the OP describes, until...

I have elaborate daydreams, usually at night when I'm supposed to be sleeping. I like to create my perfect world - perfect me, perfect family, perfect boyfriend etc... I don't see it as a bad thing,...
Don't know whether this counts as I have now been "seizure-free" for over 5 years. But, as a child, I suffered from Reflex Anoxic Seizures (RAS). It's a little difficult to explain, but in layman's...
Maisie is cute, but I don't feel like it ages well and is super trendy here in the UK. Naomi and Keira are nice enough in principle, but have been ruined for me thanks to bad associations (one Ciara...
I doubt it will come back any time soon, if ever. It just screams '90s mean girl to me! (no offence to any Brittanys!) I put it in the same league as Tiffany, Kelly etc... As jem said, Britton could...
I love Margot - it is my top girls name at the moment! I prefer the Margot spelling because it looks classy and vintage. Margo looks trendier and incomplete, and Margaux just seems like it's trying...
I love Kit and Cap! But, I see why you would want more formal names. Jameson nn Jem is adorable, BTW!
For Kit, you could use Beckett or Atticus (though Jem and Atticus might be a little too much...

They are very long names - that may be why some people think they are "pretentious". I have two middle names and I mostly like it but it can be annoying to have to write the full name out on official...
@myosotis - I saw Alchy on your list and immediately thought of alcoholics! Maybe not the best association for a child's name! Just thought you should know! I really like Tolly and Pip though!
