It's very early in the game, but I'm trying to build a list of names, because I'm pretty sure it is going to take me every single day of the next 34 weeks to get DH to agree to a name.  We both come from ridiculously large families, so lots and lots of names are not able to be used.  Names we can't use include:

Boys
Oliver
Joshua
Zachary
Ashley
Anything 'Will'
Anything "Ayden"
Atticus
Logan
Luke
Anything "Chris"
Rylen
Matthew
Cameron
Daniel
Liam
Ethan


Girls
Anything "Will"
Olivia
Macy
Hayley
Anything "Ella"
Ashleigh
Jessica


Middle names are likely to be either David, Raymond, George or Joseph for a boy and Mavis, Frances, Beatrice or Lillian for a girl.

We have a 10 year old daughter whose first name is the same as the surname of the Australian author who died this week (please don't write it, I prefer it not to be searchable under my profile) and our surname is a 9 name starting with Mans wink.gif again, please don't write it if you can figure it out.

At this stage I think I prefer something a little longer, and not too out there, but am open to all suggestions.  DH's name taste is plain and stuck in 1980.

Thanks

I think these all go with your other daughter's name and your surname...

Erica
Tegan
Pippa
Philippa
Melody
Romy
Billie
Piper
Bridget
Regan
Paige

all of these go with at least one of your second name possibles I think.

a few ideas to start playing around with anyway... I'll try to get back with boy's...
