Hi All,


My partner is half Turkish and we are expecting baby #1 in September. We really want it to have a Turkish name as he and his three brothers all have Turkish names.



Just thought I would out something up to see what we got back. We have been googling like crazy and going through all his extended family for names too!


I think we have girl name picked.... just not sure about any boy names. shrug.gif



little help would be appreciated!!



Thanks!!

I'm pretty ignorant on the topic of Turkish names but does Emir fit?  I like the sound of it.

I've got one to stay away from, for obvious reasons.

A girl I went to school with - she was the nicest person, and so kind to everyone, but her school years were hell as her parents named her Dudo.

EVERY kid who wanted to give her crap instantly went to "doo doo", with most kids then going on to some sort of dog poo reference. Poor kid sad.gif
