Hiya,



I have so many children I've run out of ideas for number 7...Need both boy and girl names. I like older styled names. Nothing modern, but hey, toss it at me anyway if you think it's nice.

My youngest is Edith Patricia.

ETA surname is 3 syllable, scotty McscottScott surname.

ETA again. Braydon - haters don't hate, lol, I was 18 when I named him 17.5 years ago.

Thomas
William
Michelie Joy - ( her father named her)
Emily Grace

Bridget and Ingrid I like. I prefer Camille over Camilla.



Not a huge fan of any of those boy names. Edward is nice, but too close to Edith with Edie/Eddie.

A boy suggestion is most urgent, I have to talk McScotty out of calling a boy MUNGO!!

Thanks for your suggestions!

Lah di Dah - Hamish I like, but it's a dogs name for me, thanks to the neighbours I grew up next to with west highland terriers.

Magnus, I LOVE Harriet, unfortunately so did Mum, and she named her cat that. sad.gif
