Hi there,
That time of year again.  I have had my friends just start posting links to their darlings, but I haven't made it over to the Bonds page as yet.
To those who have what are your favourite names, your least favourite, most inspiring, most WTF.... so on and so forth!

I saw a Fox wub.gif A gorgeous little fella too. Been my favourite & most inspiring - inspiring as it has inspired me to use it, ha!

Others are just names I love already.

Definitely some interesting names though.

I saw a baby named Australia original.gif

ETA, I reckon some of the names are fake though, people taking the p*ss wink.gif

I have never heard it used as a name but  I dont mind Season - is a real word, spelt as it should be - and really no different to using a season such as Summer or Winter as a name

Actually I think it is different. Because it is also a verb 'to season your food' etc or to allow something to season; to ripen; mature; age or harden (like wine, or wood).

Don't mind:

More interesting were:
Destyn (reminds me of Desitin the rash cream)

Didn't expect to see:
