DH and I both like the name Crosby for our #2 to go with DD Lauren.

Not much to be honest and I don't think it goes well with Lauren.

I'm not loving it but it's alright.  I think there would be nicer names of similar style. With Lauren it neither goes nor doesn't for me.  It's just in another world.   I think of shoes.

Bill Crosby, sorry.

All I think is Parenthood.

I don't actually mind the name but don't really think it goes with Lauren.

Isn't it Grosby shoes and Bill Cosby, though? Probably doesn't improve the name though.

#16 pippityroo

Posted 19 February 2013 - 06:23 PM

I don't mind it. Possibly cause I like Crosby on parenthood.

#17 Gudrun

Posted 19 February 2013 - 06:28 PM

Bam, I think there's both Grosby and Crosby shoes.

LOL biggrin.gif I guess we will cross that one off the list then Ha Ha...

Oh dear this is sssooooo hard sad.gif

#21 PeppermintBlondie

Posted 20 February 2013 - 09:22 AM

I'm thinking of Bing, not Bill (Cosby). Have only heard of Grosby shoes. Regardless, I don't like the name and don't think it's in the same league as Lauren.

Im pretty open to a lot of names, but Crosby is one I just can't seem to like.

What about Cosi or Cosmo?
