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 f**ks 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. :-)
