Asher is pretty common. I like that one though.

;) Lol. Yes it is like Ledger! We might change the spelling, though, because a lot of people think it's Lee-ger. Lol. :) Go with that strange name, girl! It's no one else's kid but yours! :)

There is nothing wrong with strange, as long as it's legit and won't embarrass the kid.

I don't think Leger will embarrass him :)

Welcome. I said the same thing, but I suck at coming up with names. But my SO's mom said Scottlyn, because its what she would have named my SO if he had been a girl. They are Scottish(my family is too lol) and her middle name is Lyn. So She said Scottlyn one day I liked it and one night he said "What about Scottlyn Kate?" I loved it and still do :)

Leger looks like it would be league-er.



Scottlyn is awful.

I don't think Leger is embarrassing but there is a limit to names. I can't say the same for other names. :wink:

I love it!!!!! :) When I first got pregnant with Ash we searched SOOOOOOOOOOO much online! & that's where I found it & I fell in looooove! When I found out I was pregnant this time around I suggested Leger after our friend & DH kind of brushed it off, but once I heard it on TV, I HAD to name my baby that!

Yes, I know! A girl I graduated with named her daughter Moonrey Katley. (Moon-ree & kate-lee). Ugh! I hate that!

I would consider changing the spelling so people don't call him Lee-gr. Ledger isn't bad though. I've heard some really bad names lol

Yeah, DH and I are most likely going to change it, because everyone thinks that it's Lee-ger. So, he'll be Ledger Hunter Kane! :) But, I've heard bad names! A girl I graduated with named her daughter Moonrey (Moon-ree) Kateley (Kate-lee)!

Actually, I like Ledger better than your first spelling choice. But I understand how you wouldn't truly care what others think. Heck, both my daughter's names are technically surnames. I've never given any fucks about what anyone has had to say about them.

I like Scottlyn. I wouldn't pick it, but if I met a adult ith that name I wouldn't blink.



My first name was pretty odd for a while, but when I started looking at the type 10 baby names... MINE WAS IN THE TOP. I nearly died. I've literally met one girl and one guy with my name since I was born. And now apparently it's everywhere, makes me wonder if there is a book or a movie with a character with my name.



Oh, and I think Leger Hunter is.... Nah I don't like. Sounds like he's and accountant who is hunting for his ledger. O.o



I do like hunter however. It was one of the boy names on my "approved" list. :-)
