Oliver Cromwell anyone?

Republican much?

No-one can be called Oliver unless they start out as a starving street urchin in Dickensian London.

Interesting.

My youngest’s name is Oliver. Not by looking at any top 10 list though. He’s almost 4.

We got the name because we were watching Oliver Twist during the pregnancy. Figured it was a nice ‘neutral’ name.

My name used to be uncommon. It’s not Oliver by the way, but I still look around whenever I hear someone scream at their offspring in the mall, or wherever, thinking “what have I done now”, haha.

At least Josh has finally gone, I swear every boy at my kids school is named Josh.

Funny you say that: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1211719/Why-teachers-single-pupils-called-Callum-Chelsea-Connor-Jack-troublemakers.html

I was sure there was an Australian study done but I can’t find it now 😉

Mrs Magoo is a teacher and she has a theory tht any boy with a name staritng with J, i.e. John, Jack, Jordon, Jayden(Bogan’s fav), are bound to ruffle feathers in the classroom.

My actual name has caused many a humerous moment over th eyears as those either hard of hearing or with the inability to listen get it wrong.
