    Well, since Heinz is a German diminutive of Heinrich, I'd say you could use anything in the 'Henry' family, e.g.:

    Henry
    Harry
    Hal
    Henrik
    Henri
    Enrico
    Enzo
    Rico

    Yes, I agree 100% that people get bullied because of their personalities, not because of their names. If a child is the sort to be targeted by bullies, naming her the most 'normal', innoccuous name...

    Asche, from what you've said, I'm pretty confident your family is way more excited about your baby than your aunt's baby. They probably look on her pregnancy with the same amount of trepidation as...

    It would bother me that this is already a word. I just get the image of museums and storerooms filled with dusty old curiosities. It would be like you're saying your daughter is an object from the...

    For us, it literally couldn't have happened quicker. I stopped taking the pill, had the withdrawal bleed and didn't get my period the next month, because I was pregnant.

    No, absolutely not. If the older child 'picked' a name that we were already considering, I might let them think they had chosen the name. But I wouldn't actually do it. They'll have their own chance...

    I agree with this. Dagger gives an extremely violent image, I can't hear it without thinking of stabbing. Is that really what you want your boy's nickname to conjure up? I'd be slightly apprehensive...

    Interesting question. I sort of want to be OK with it, but there is certainly something that would stop me from naming a boy Rose (as a first name). On the other hand, at least I'm not a hypocrite...
