Here at MFM HQ, we love the whole baby name-picking process.

Sometimes you just know what you want your new little one to be called, but sometimes it’s nice to hear a few suggestions, whether from friends, family or an online source.

Enter Tatler

In their article Top posh baby names for 2017, the Tatler team have pulled together a (tongue-in-cheek?) list of the most weird, wonderful, wacky and (allegedly) real posh monikers they could find.

Some of the names aren’t too unusual – Wendy, John, David and Nancy, for example. But a few of them definitely are. 

Check out the full list below.

Here’s the girls’…

Alfreda
Blanche
Czar-Czar
Debonaire
Estonia
Figgy
Gethsemane
Hum
Idabelle
Jori
Koala
Lark
Monaveen
Nancy
Opal
Power
Queenie
Rara
Scar
Tansy
Una
Vervain
Wendy
Xanthe
Yellow
Zenia

And the boys…

Aubyn
Barclay
Cassar
David
Euripides
Fenston
Gustav
Hickman
Innsbruck
John
Kenneth
Ludlow
Mao
Npeter (the ‘N’ is silent)
Ormerod
Prince
Quail
Ra
Stourton
Titus
Uxorious
Victory
Wigbert
Xman
Yak
Zebedee

While the silent ‘N’ in Npeter did make us laugh ? and there are a few gems in there (how lovely is the name Una?), we do have to wonder how some of these would go down on the playground.

Spoiler: probably not very well.

Have your say

Did any of the ‘posh’ options on this list catch your eye? What name did you pick out for your baby? We’d love to know your thoughts on Facebook or Twitter
