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
Anna - love
Anastacia - love (though I spell it Anastasia, this was a contender when naming DD but worried about her getting the nn Stacy which I dislike)
Vivian/Vivienne - like (Vivian is how I prefer to spell it)
Evelyn - love (also love Evangeline)
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

#6 wish*upon*a*star

Posted 02 January 2013 - 08:19 PM

My top 3 of each are-
Archer, Elliott, Elijah
Florence, Carys, Vivienne


#7 ~faerydust~

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.

Aww bummer sad.gif It is a great name, we just need to work out how to make a boy so we can use it laughing2.gif

You've got a lot of lovely names on your list, I'm sure whatever you decide will be great biggrin.gif

#11 Gudrun

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.

Vivienne
Catherine

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.
