We haven't discussed names yet. Normally we disagree on names, and when we finally find a name we both like, we go with that and don't bother checking out other names. Luckily both DS and DD looked like their names when they were born.

At the moment, I like Camille for a girl. No idea about middle name, and no idea about a boy's name.

I love Eloise. And Levi. Also like Noah Elias and Quinn.

Love the names you have The Copleys.

I really like the name Cali for a girl and Xander for a boy though no doubt I'll have many other options further along. :-) XDP chose DDs first name and i chose her middle after. I still love the first name I'd chosen for her which is Jacinta.

This is a lot of fun... those are all great names... I love Isadora especially!

My best friend has an Ivy and it's a cool name.

We are going for Mitali Heather for a girl - I have a friend called Mitali and I love it because it's original but pretty. And my sister's name is Heather.

for a boy we are going with Sam James - Sam has special meaning for DH and james is my Grandfather's name.

I have loads of girl names I love but I find boy's names so hard to think of.

OMG - I just went and bought baby cloths (gender neutral) but still it seems a bit early. It is all just such cute stuff  rolleyes.gif

DH has just canned Camille.  glare.gif

Lulu_R-S - I really like Eloise.

Jeanie3000 - Mitali is gorgeous! It reminds me a bit of DD's name (Mahalia) being

We are in the same boat. Have 2 girls and convinced we are having a 3rd but not going to find out. We find names we like and then it doesn't it with our surname or vice versa...such a struggle...

Last time we kept our names to ourselves, because everyone always has an opinion (and unlike here where everyone is respectful and nice) they feel the need to tell you that they went to school with a kid with that name who was mean.

But seeing as we are all friends here

I like Olivia Rose for a girl and Liam James for a boy, I am very vanilla in my tastes though

hanz - my mother pointed out to me that unless it is family and they'd make an issue out of it, don't be too swayed by the names others give their child, if you like it, use it, because you never know who will be in your life in the future

i love olivia as well, I really wanted to use it as a middle name for dd, but it would have made her initial COW which I just couldn't do to her!

#19 AnnBB

Posted 12 January 2013 - 09:27 PM

For girls we like:
Sophia ( worried about its popularity though)Lucinda and Eloise (a few of us are keen on this one it seems!)

For boys we like:
Archer, Hugo and Leo  (but I don't like any name that it is short for)

We've discussed names for years. original.gif
Girl will be Scarlett .
Boy will be Kianoa original.gif

Argh, the Xavier thread in the main baby names section has successfully scotched it as a first name option - DH pronounces it the wrong way and it'd bug me  aannoyed.gif

So now we're trawling for boy's names. Because I'm a fussy git that likes classic but not crazily popular names. And boy names are way harder than girl names!

#23 sleepyerin

Posted 13 January 2013 - 01:54 PM

We had a discussion again the other night and we've added a couple

Olivia or Isla for a girl (probably with Rose as a middle name)

Liam or Dylan for a boy (probably with James as a middle name)

But who knows where we'll end up. Funny how we've ditched some of the alternates for DD - Emily, Joshua and Lachlan (Liam was in the mix last time). I still like them, but not as much

Hugo for a boy.  bbaby.gif

Made a deal with DH that he name our son that if he goes out and buys me the birthday cake I have been so desperately craving.  Good job I love the name. laugh.gif He wants Allan after his granddad for a middle name, but I'm undecided on that.

My girls list:

Eden, Hazel, Eleanor, Lucia and maybe Heather.

Middle name(s); Ruby, Beatrice, Victoria. (Family names).

I already have an Iris.

I love threads like this.

Currently at the top of my list is

Girl - Claudia (also like Celeste, Harriet, Eloise, Olivia, Lisbeth, Audrey)
Boy - Riley (also like Maxwell, Patrick, Miles, Griffin, Archer)
