    Also, it's nice to know that Molly isn't ruined. I'm going to keep that too. And I find the Beatles reference hilarious, I had no idea Desmond & Molly are in Obla-di Obla-da Love it!
    I voted for Dylan James but I also really like your choices
    I love the idea DJ as a nickname for Desmond James

    Molly Rosalyn is a lovely name. I had no idea it was a nickname for a drug. Special K is a nickname for ketamine and Kellog's didn't let it ruin it for them and neither should you.

    Maybe I'm just out of the loop, but I had no idea that Molly was a drug reference. I don't think you should let it stop you though. If it bothers you, Polly might be a good alternative.

    I voted for Adam, because I think it's a handsome name. Desmond is nice, but if you plan on using Molly, I might choose something else, unless you want to hear that song everyday for the rest of your life. Personally, I love it, but I think it's too much. Just reading this post I have, "Desmond has a barrow in the marketplace/ Molly is the singer in a band...." lodged firmly in my brain.
    Trying, trying, trying

    Current favorites:
    Boy: Asa Guillaume, Barnaby August
    Girl: Apolline Iris- Polly, Clothilde Juno- Chloe

    I think Desmond is by far the best name in the poll, but Desmond and Molly together strikes me as really silly because of the Beatles song.

    Yes, Molly refers to MDMA, but I dont associate it every time I hang out with the 2 girls named Molly that I know.
    I wouldn't let it stop you from using it by any means.

    I voted for Desmond James. What a great name!
