hear hear! I would even consider changing my children's names if I divorced. I guess it's from personal experience - my parents divorced when I was 3 and mum kept his name. I finally was able to...

that's a shame about your ob/gyn. Mine (a female) just said, "oh, I've heard that can work well" but I guess being part of the medical system means they don't really advertise for the alternative m...

I've made no secret that I don't much like these new, made-up names. It doesn't effect me at all so I don't care, I just feel sorry for the kids... But I do love old names that have fallen out of ...

I had all of mine in my feet, elbow, ears and head!! After the birth when I was complaining of a weird pain she put a few in my tummy area, (supposedly to help draw up and contract the uterus.)
