Post subject: Jonty for a boy. Tilly for a girl. What do you think?
So we've decided for Jonty for a boy and Tilly for a girl. We really like these names but some of my mates have p*ssed themselves laughing when I've said them. We really want to stick with our gut feeling coz we like these names and it's our kid after all! People say that Jonty sounds posh but I thinks its kinda cool. In the end its the kids personality that carries the name rather than the other way round. Isn't it? We've actually decided now not to tell people anymore until the little 'un is here, saves worrying about people's reactions.

i know a guy called jonty, he's not posh at all!! and a real down to earth person who can be a real laugh, so the name reminds me of a fun, out going person, rather than a posh person, isn't it strange how if you know someone with a name then we stereotype all persons with the same name??? lol!
when i was a kid i remember my gran had a friend tilly, she was really old, and sweet and gave me an my brother an sister treats all the time! so again, another cool name!!! lol!
good luck with your names!
