Thanks all for the comments - I'm always surprised that opinions on names are so varied, two people see the same name as 'Weird' and 'Beautiful' :p It would be a boring world if we were all alike.
No hyphen just a middle name.
I understood Pascale to be the feminine and Paschal to be masculine? I must admit I have only met one Pascale in the flesh and she was a girl so I may be...

I'm in Australia too. I know friends with names that vary from the easy to the difficult! An unfamiliar name can still be fine if it has an easy nickname (eg I know a boy Samir who the kids at...
Poll: Mary Pascale?
We had decide on Mary Clare if we have a girl but I'm due over the Easter season and I'm thinking it would be lovely to tie that in and I wonder if Clare is a bit plain compared to my other daughters...
I'm due in 4 (ish) weeks and stuck with a dilemma. We are a nickname family and an established, traditional nickname is one of my criteria (eg James/Jim). I broke this rule with #3 to...
WDYT of Dan as a stand alone name? We like Dan and Danny but not Daniel.
It is historically a different name to Daniel (think the tribe of Israel) with its own (not great) story.
We thought we...
If I'm saying Saint Francis eg-zay-vee-uh I say that.
I pronounce the ex men guy EX-Zayvee-er.
My friend's son I say Zay-vee-er because that is how she pronounces it.
I pronounce Saviour Save-yuh...
Thank you all for your replies, John took out the poll but it was pretty close.
Just for interest my fave was Patrick and DH likes John :) We are both happy though either way. I like Johnny...
Wavering between my hubby's fave and mine for our fourth child.
John Patrick Francis LN
Patrick John Francis LN
Both fit in well with our other children. We would call him Johnny or Paddy...
Expecting #4 after Easter and we need help with a girl MN (boy is a whole other problem!). We are pretty much set on the first name Mary. We wanted a family middle but can't find one we both like...

I have followed (some?) of your other posts. I mean this in the nicest way possible but I think you need IRL help with this one. Many posters have reassured you that your daughters name is...
I think it depends on the level of the relationship and what your partner thinks about it.
Yes it would absolutely be inappropriate not to tell your partner, lies of omission are still lies and I...
Thank you very much for the comments. I hadn't really thought about giving her warning (I normally keep names to myself until bub arrives) I am going to have to think about how to do this. At this...
This may not be an actual issue as we may have a girl or change our minds but I'm pregnant so I am stressing about it!
Hubby and I have agreed that our next child will have a mn from my...
We have agreed on John (if we have a boy) as either mn or fn - but probably middle as hubby isn't a huge fan of Johnny (which I love).
We both like the name Dan or Danny but in keeping...

This is a really hard topic in a globalised setting like the net. There are names that are offensive in some parts of the world that wouldn't raise an eyebrow in others. First off are you in a real...
I think it may be problematic... I had to look the word up as my first thought was 'Doxology' and I didn't know if they were related words (they are). As you seem to want to use if for religious...

I went to school with a girl named Fleur and I don't remember pronounciation problems - I don't think it is an unheard of name. If you both love it I would use it.
Why don't you try calling her...
ok thanks - I must admit the poll results blew me away! I have never met someone with the name only seen churches called Thomas a Becket. I think the name must be much more popular in America than...
Poll: becket or beckett?
I'm thinking about the name Becket for a middle name. It would honour a family Rebecca and I like the religious association (St Thomas a Becket).
I'm a bit confused though that on websites it is...
My favourite virtue names are Mercy, Charis, Felicity and Amity.
Since you like Noelle I know a family with girls named Columbine and Paschal (traditionally masculine names though they sound...

my second sons middle name comes from both sides of the family. My brother and FIL share the same name. I had never been particularly close to FIL but saw it as a positive that it honoured both...

I'm in Australia too and I think that you may have trouble with this. I accept that Noa may be very popular for girls elsewhere in the world but I think you would have to accept that here it is...

If I didn't have to worry about fitting in in out very conservative community (or take into account my husbands taste) my two boys would be Jericho and Galilee. I also like Solomon but think it is...
Thankyou all for your replies - I was hoping for a clear winner but at least there isn't a clear loser :)
I am trying to fit my family pattern which is a religious name and a family name hence the...
