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 don't like surnames used as christian names.

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 lactasticmama

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

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?
