Hi,

I guess we still have plenty of time to decide on the name, but I know that the next 13 weeks are going to fly buy. I'm keen for some outside opinions of the names on our list to date. In no particular order they are:

Jasper
Milo
Finlay
Xavier
Orlando

DD is Willow - I think our list so far is reflective of working well with that?

Are there any others that are similar that I haven't though about maybe?

TIA

Don't think Orlando/Milo and Willow go well together (bit rhymey)- the rest do though. I much prefer the other names anyway. My fave is Finlay followed by Xavier and Jasper. Love the nickname Finn.

The only think that puts me off Xavier is lack of nickname (except for maybe Xave) and the fact that some people say EX-Zavier (these 2 things might not bother you though!)

ETA - forgot to add suggestions:

Samuel or Samson
Leo
Alexander
Jeremy
Evan

Love jasper and willow together, like Orlando too original.gif I love Finlay but don't think it "goes" with willow (not that that would stop me).

Willow and Jasper is perfect.

Finlay goes OK.   I wouldn't pick Milo or Orlando because the 'o' is sounding the same as the Willow ending but's a different one still.  They just don't fit for me.  Xavier seems like a different style of name so I wouldn't pick that either.   Jasper, Milo and Finlay are among my favourite names but the pick here would definitely be Jasper.


Others:

Zephyr
Griffin
Casper
Fabian
Emmett

Finlay would be my pick although he will get nn Finn & Finn & Flyn are very popular at the moment so it's a bit to common for me. Sorry but I really dislike all your other names. I do like Evan as someone else mentioned.

Oh dear, can't get excited about any of them:

Jasper - a dog's name
Milo - a cat's name
Finlay - OK
Xavier - awful
Orlando - awfuller

I love Xavier and Jasper from your list,  they are also both on our list too. Dont much like the others especially with DD's name. Xavier iis what our baby will be called if a boy though as a pp mentioned i know he will get X Zavier and that will bug me. Having said all this though I think Jasper sounds beautiful with Willow so my pick from your list is def Jasper

Thanks so much so far ladies. Jasper and Xavier would have to be our top picks I think too.

I don't mind the 'o' sound of Milo and Orlando with DD's names, but they would be the bottom two names I think.

Will have to give feedback to DH tonight original.gif

Not a big fan of any, but would choose Finlay over any of the others by a long way.
