Is Lochie common where you live? I just wonder because with the ‘ie’ at the end, your kid might get made fun of… idk. Honestly the first thing that came to mind is that you’d call a pet that name.

Jade and Rayne.. too new and “made up” sounding… so many Jadens around.. you don’t need another Jade out there. Rayne… just sounds a bit too trendy.. especially with the wrong spelling.

@canarydiamond:  I went to high school with a girl named Jade…she was born in 1981…so it’s not THAT new!  

 

OP, I like Lachlan, actually…is that vetoed?  Julian’s nice, too.  I mean, HELLO, Julian Fellows!

 

I like Alana for the girl.  Would it rhyme with banana, though?  If so I don’t like it.  =)

I love the name Rayne! I’m a bit biased though, it’s my cousin’s name.

@peachacid:  It’s still not a classic name. That’s what I was getting at. Not that everyone needs a classic name… but with the amount of “Jaden/Jayden” type names out there I wouldn’t do it.

@canarydiamond:  I’m pretty sure Jade has been around a lot longer than all of those “yden” names, i wouldn’t even put them in the same category

I like Julian, Jade, Alana and Grace. I might avoid Jade because of the popularity of Jayden though.

I’ll be honest… Lochie makes me think of Nessie, or some sort of lagoon creature. It also just seems like a nickname to me? I’m not saying I hate it, but it isn’t my favorite name, and it seems like one kids would make fun of.

 

I like Alana a lot!

@canarydiamond:  lol, I know 2 women in their 30s named Jade. I think one might actually be in her 40s.

@sydneybridetobe1991:  I think the only name I dont like is Lochie. It just seems like a cutesy nickname to me.

Lochie sounds like a disease in my opinion. “I just got off the phone with the doctor and he told me I have a bad case of Lochie.” 

Also not a fan of “Rayne”. Idk just looks like a “Trying too hard” kind of name or one with different spelling just to be unique.

 

Alana is pretty though.

@allyfally:  Even if the name has been around for 50+ years it is still not a classic name. I just pointed out it sounds a bit too much like the -yden names, that’s all.
