Middle name for a boy will be Thomas, undecided yet for a girl but probably a family name.
Open to suggestions for things that may be similar.
Edited to remove kids names.

Posted 02 January 2013 - 08:15 PM
You have some that I love and some that I dislike
Elijah - dislike (too soft or something, don't know how to explain it)
Zachary - love (obviously as I have a Zachary myself lol)
Elliott - nms
Isaiah - nms (I like Isaac though)
Franklin - dislike (sorry to all the Franklins out there but I immediately think nerd or the turtle)
Atticus - it's ok
Ashley - girls name (Asher I like though)
Archer - like (but really hate the nn Archie which puts me off)
Nicholas - like (but really love Nikolai)
Ezekiel - it's ok
Tobias - dislike (same issue as Elijah)
Elaine - is ok
Carys - like
Lydia - like
Tabitha - dislike
Penelope - like (but don't like Penny)
Florence - like
Leila - like (what about Lola)
Clementine - dislike

Catherine - nms
Eleanor - nms

My favourite from the boys list is Zachary. I also quite like Nicholas.
If middle name is defintely going to be Thomas, I would not use Tobias - Tobias Thomas just doesnt work at all.
Favourite from the girls list is Anna - however I dont think I would use Anna when you already have Alexandra, I would also not use Anastacia when you already have Alexandra
Posted 02 January 2013 - 08:19 PM
My top 3 of each are-
Archer, Elliott, Elijah
Florence, Carys, Vivienne
Posted 02 January 2013 - 08:22 PM
Anastacia is a family name, hence the spelling. I love Lola, DH does not. The girls are only ever known as Millie and Lexie, so not too concerned about a name starting with the same initial.

Mt favorites from your list are:
I noticed on your boys list you like Ashley and Archer, do you perhaps like Asher? It's one of my favorites
Posted 02 January 2013 - 09:02 PM
I LOVE Asher. DH vetoed :-(

I LOVE Asher. DH vetoed :-(
It is a great name, we just need to work out how to make a boy so we can use it
You've got a lot of lovely names on your list, I'm sure whatever you decide will be great
Posted 02 January 2013 - 10:06 PM
Boys I like Ezekiel, Elijah and Tobias. I wouldn't use Tobias with MN Thomas though.Ezekiel
goes best with the sister names so that is my pick.
For girls I like Elaine, Carys, Lydia, Clementine, Anna and Catherine.
I think Lydia
goes best with the sister names and therefore would be my pick. Second pick is Elaine.

Elliott (I prefer Elliot or Eliot but still like it)
Posted 03 January 2013 - 08:11 AM
From your boys list I prefer Tobias, and whilst generally I am a fan of alliteration, the two T---s names don't really work.
I actually really like Franklin.
From your girls list I would go with Eleanor Catherine or Tabitha Elaine.
