    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.

    There's not a lot you can really do with Sophie, except the obvious Sophia, which I don't like and wouldn't use - nothing against the name, I'm just fed up of people calling me it by mistake enough...

    Exactly this. Bexley is a place to me, not a name. I can sort of see the appeal in that it's got trendy sounds, but if I came across a kid named Bexley I'd wonder why, of all the place names in the...

    I quite like Maisie or Ruby for the youngest, but I'm not sold on either of the suggestions for the older two. I don't think old-fashioned names were quite as 'in' 16 years ago, especially not for...

    I totally agree with this. In fact, any name with a double 'r' sound I struggle with. I work with a guy called Rory and I actually have to consciously think about it every time I say his name.
