Hi everyone! We really could use some help as our baby could come anyday now. The two names:
Miles or Duncan
Firstly, our two other kids are Liam and fiona and our last name is Irish and starts with M.
Second, we want to stay away from trendy names (Liam was named before the big boom)
Third, I worry that Duncan may sound a bit dated due to it peaking in pop in the 1990's. I also wonder why it plummeted since then.
Lastly, we would call Miles "Milo" which may help with the pop issue but may make it sound trendy...
so, you see, we need help!Thanks!!!!
I agree with Belle: Miles. Duncan is nice but can lead to childhood teasing (dunce, dunky, dung, dunk'donuts). One can work to overcome it and succeed greatly with it (Duncan Bannatyne) but with all the Miles I've known about seem to have success come easier for them.
I responded in your other thread about this, but yes it is ok. Unless there is a trademark filed, no one has claim on names. There are few original names and they aren't original for long because people like them and adopt them.
