What’s in a name?

Choosing a name is one of the most important, exciting things you do when you are planning for your first baby. We spent hours scouring the books and arguing about the best names for our first born in 1991. When she was born we decided the name we had chosen did not suit our little girl and I made my long suffering husband bring back the books to my hospital bed. I felt like death at the time but it had to be done. Then I stumbled upon ‘Isabel’ – that was it – I loved the name and our darling daughter was named. Having said that she became an ‘Izzie’ almost straight away!

I love my job as I get asked to personalise so many interesting names on to towels and dressing gowns. I’ve noticed recently that the traditional names are coming back – George and Henry and girls’ names such as Sophia and Rose. This may be a sign of the times or it may be that there is a royal baby on the way – I’m not sure?

Today I had an ‘Audrey’ order which made me smile as you rarely hear children called that name anymore!

Some unusual names I’ve had the last couple of months,
