After 4 miracle IVF babies - we have been blessed by a natural miracle! ohmy.gif  biggrin.gif  wub.gif  cry1.gif  blink.gif  ddance.gif  roll2.gif  hands.gif  ohmy.gif  eexcite.gif

So throw some names at me! Boy or Girl ... and this time there's just 1!


We like more traditional, classic, old-fashioned names that can have cute/spunky nn's.

For a boy Im liking:

Harrison - Harry
William - Will
Lincoln (not keen on the nn Linc tho?)
Rafael - Rafa

For a girl Im liking:

Seraphina - Sera
Penelope - Penny
Arabella - Bella

Baby names get me excited...and give me something else to think about other than O.M.G! hehe

Wow your girls have great names, as hard as 2 sets of twins must have been, it would have been fun coming up with those combinations!

Your style is a bit more classic than mine, I like more foreign sounding names. I just called DD2 Serafina and have mostly very positive feedback. I also liked Allegra (Alli or Lexi), Valentina (Nina or Leni), Calliope (Callie). For boys I really like Lincoln or Rafael, the other 2 are a bit traditional and common for me. Landon, Lawson, Alexander??

Penelope and Rafael are my favourites of those. I like all of the girls' names at least a bit though, in Penelope > Seraphina > Arabella order.

Other ideas:

Boys
Gideon
Cyrus
Henry
Gabriel
Edmund
Dominic
Cassius
Eli, which is legit in itself or good as a NN for Elijah, Elias, Eleazar etc.

Girls
Araminta
Rosabel, Annabel, Mirabel, Christabel
Susannah (NNs Susie, Suki, Zanna...)
Wilhelmina (Willa, Mina)
Jessamine
Rosamund, Rosemary (Rosie, Romy)
Leontine
Leora

As the mother of a handsome little Rafa I highly recommend it wub.gif . Far and away the best of your boys' names, in my humble opinion.
