Hello there lovely ladies
As the topic suggests, we are expecting a 'surprise' bundle in march 2013, and are in desperate need of both boys & girls names which complement our 3 sons names.
Currently we have:
As we are unsure of gender(although assuming another boy as we have 3 already); any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Our lists we have currently (however not really sold on any at this stage), need some motivation and from you lovely ladies
Eva/Evie (paternal Grandmother)
Olive (maternal Grandmother)

Harper & Flynn are on my boys list!
I like Luca best from your list but like Lucas a little more!
We've also got Jasper and Emerson on our list...
Girls, I love Evie then Eva (would prefer Eve) and Eloise is pretty too!
Good luck deciding, it's such a big decision

Not Liam if you already have William, as it's a diminutive.
I like Connor, Louis and Oliver from your list.
From your girls list I like Anthea, Elsie, Eloise, Grace, Genevieve and Lucy.

From your lists I like Eli, Louis and Sebastian.
For girls, I like Genevieve with Evie as a nn for your DHs grandmother? Genevieve Olive would be lovely.

As PP have pointed out a no to Liam since you have a William. I'd probly not do Grace either because of "Will 'n Grace" (never watched it but that sticks in my head).
I'd pick one of Eli, Owen and Noah from your boys list and from Anthea, Eva and Lucy from your girls.

Love all these names!
Have you considered the following?
Avery nn Ava

Wow, thanks for all the replies thus far, i wasnt really sure how well those names would be recieved
I agree with those who said no to Liam; it was added purely for the style that we were after if that makes sense?...
chickendrumstick: I appreciate this suggestion: For girls, I like Genevieve with Evie as a nn for your DHs grandmother? Genevieve Olive would be lovely.
Unfortunately, DH is not as convinced though
Gudrun: Oh, i hadnt made that connection-well done for pointing that one out haha!
MissButtercup: Jude, Sage & Mila are also names that we had considered in the past however we now know children by that name.
Thank you to those who have contributed this far & if there are any fresh names out there we would love to hear those also.
