Hi,

I have 8 weeks until bub #3 is due and we are yet to decide (agree) on anything.
We decided not to find out this time..
We have two other children and their names are:
Ava Ruby &
Oliver Will.

Some names on out list include:

Girls:
Lucy Stella
Lucy Matilda
Stella Lucy (I prefer Stella or Lucy)
Stella Maggie
Matilda Lucy (husbands preferred)

Boys:
Harry (at this stage we both like this for a first name)
but middle name??
Harry Oscar
Harry Archie
Harry Jack
Harry Max

Please help.. as you can see we prefer older styled names so anything else that you think we may like please suggest.

Thanks rolleyes.gif

Lovely names!

I like Lucy Matilda and Harry Archie.

Stella Lucy is l's too close together for me. Lucy Stella would be better.

I like the nickname Tillie but honestly prefer Talia (tahl-ya) or Tallulah to Matilda. Tilda itself I don't hate but I like Tilda Swinton and that's probably why.

Harry is okay (must admit I'd prefer Henry) and it seems like it would work with any of the one syllable middles I like, like Joel, Heath, Miles, Rhys. Jack feels a bit nicknamish to me though.

I like the idea of the kids having the same ending sound

Girls:

I think Lucy, Matilda and Maggie all go great with the sibset. I particularly like Lucy.

Combos that work well:

Lucy Matilda
Matilda Lucy
Maggie Matilda

Other names you might consider:

Audrey
Lillian
Eliza

Boys:

Harry goes very nicely with the sibset and is a good name.  Not overjoyed by any of your MN combos.

I suggest:

Harry Felix
Harry Charles

Alternative name:   Samuel Max


My personal picks would be Lucy Matilda and Harry Felix.  But you've got endless goodies that would go.

I like Stella Maggie, then Stella Lucy.

Really really really dislike Matilda and think you have much nicer names on your list.

Would you consider Maggie as a FN?

I like Stella Maggie or Lucy Matilda for a girl.

Like Gudrun I'm not crazy about any of the potential middle names with Harry. Love the suggestion of Harry Felix.

Ava, Oliver and Lucy flow together really well. I also love Stella. Matilda is nice but becoming a bit overused in my circles so has lost some of it's shine for me.
Stella Lucy is a good combo..

The middle names you have for Harry either sound a bit nicknamey or I'm not keen on (e.g. Oscar...I know it's a popular name but all I think of is Oscar the Grouch).
I'd avoid William or Charles because of the Royal family connection. Is there a family name you could use? I like middle names to have some sort of meaning..

Middle name suggestions for Lucy:
Jane
Claire
Elizabeth
Olivia
Charlotte

Middle name suggestions for Stella:
Mary
Marie
Kate
Catherine
Charlotte
Elizabeth



Middle name suggestions for Harry:
Thomas
Isaac
Luke


Other names:
Adam
Jacob
Owen
Rhys
Hamish
James

Emily
Penelope
Emma
Eliza
Charlotte
Rose
Eve (though might be a bit too similar to Ava..)
Jessica
Esther
