  • You'll probably think this odd as it's just not a 'now' name at all! But i love, LOVE, the name Dorothy. I wanted to call one of ours Dorothy but expected it would be too disliked. I like Dolly or Dotty as a nickname. So sweet. Dorothy means "gift from Jehovah".

    For a boy I adore the name Linus. I know! Another off the wall one for these days. So, we didn't use it. Means flax, flaxen, flax coloured but it sounds to me like it should be soft butstrong. :)
