I’m not pregnant and don’t plan on getting knocked up again any time soon, but I LOVE thinking of baby names. I always ask people what their kids names are and I have a mental filofax of kids names incase we decide to breed again.

My son’s are called Baxter and Arlo. I stole them from other people, no original story to their names. I still love what we called them but also found it so bloody hard making a final decision. I had a bucketload of girls names, but I find boys names trickier.

The other day I was reading an article of names that were taken from TV shows. Some are pretty bloody cute too.

What are your kids names? Where did you get them from?

Blair -  From Gossip Girl


Winnie - The Wonder Years


Barney - How I Met Your Mother


Mindy - The Mindy Project


Don - Mad Men


Petra - Jane The Virgin


Jed - The Night Manager (a female character)


  • Lil

    My two girls are named Mackenzie and Jamison….if we had a son, he would have been called Campbell. No back stories, it just seems like we like surnames as first names.

  • Rachael

    We were very close to calling our girl Mallory inspired by family ties but I then went off it for us.
