Hi all,

I had a strange dream the other night that bub (due in 9 weeks) had arrived but for some reason we just hadn't 'gotten around' to naming her... oops. That has prompted me and DH to get back to our shortlist. We have a few definite options but I'm on the lookout for any similar names that maybe we haven't thought of yet? And/or feedback on our current options.

Currently on the shortlist:
Lucy
Charlotte
Zoe
Hannah
DH and I both love Amelie but can't use it for this bub (my sister just named her bub Emily), also like but can't use Ruby, Rosie, Grace, Anna.

As far as middle names go, I'm liking Winter (esp combo Lucy Winter), and I'm open to any other not-too-out-there noun alternatives. I'm not bothered by how 'popular' names are, more important that DH and I both like it. Definitely no uneek spelling though original.gif

Thanks!
katevictoria

Lucy is my favorite on your list by far, and I love the combination of Lucy Winter, gorgeous wub.gif

I like Charlotte and Zoe, but both are so very popular at the moment that turns me off them a bit, but I know that's not important to you original.gif

Hannah is NMS.

Love the suggestions of Romy too.

Some other suggestions-
Lila
Remi
Maya
Rosie
Stella
Ivy
Violet
Juliet
