  2. I found baby names sooo hard! I have two boys and typically there were loads of girls names I liked but hardly any boys! And the name I LOVED my husband didn’t! It’s a minefield 😂

      1. Wow, that’s quite a list. Some of the celebrate names are hilarious! My nan told me that in her day they’d give you a list of names at the hospital. Guess there were no baby name books then, nor any fantastic Nanny M blog posts to the rescue. Xx

      2. Thank you so much! That makes sense, everyone from back in the day had really similar names. Aren’t they! I’m not sure how I would feel being called apple, lol. Still, it’s so unusual! Awh, Man, I should have added your name it’s lovely!
        Thank you so much, your engagement is always so lovely! Can’t wait to hear more from you
