We have been having a hard time coming up with any names, so our list is short.  I have posted here a few times with various names and now i'm close to my due date it's time to get serious!

DD is Camille, there will be no middle name and surname is 2 syllables and starts with V.

In no particular order:

Jasper
Dominic
Gabriel
Lukas - Pretty much discounted due to immense popularity

Edit - Liam removed from list, it's not a contender.

If you have any more suggestions let me have them!


Thanks original.gif

Out of your list and the one that i think would most suit your DD's name is Dominic.

#3 Elemenopee

I love Dominic.

Camille and Dominic I swoon worthy. I like Gabriel a lot as well but I think it's pretty popular as well. Also like jasper.

Your list is very tasteful original.gif  I like seeing and reading all of those names.

With Camille I choose Jasper. Just lovely as a sibset.

I like them all (except Liam ph34r.gif ). Really nice list. My favourites are Gabriel and Lukas, though.

Yeah my favs so far a definitely Jasper and Dominic.  DP want's to spell Dominic with a CK but I just think it looks a bit wrong (Dominick), it should be with a C right? He also likes Domenic (I prefer Dominic, I think?).

And am I the only person here not bothering with middle names for my kids? I'm starting to feel guilty about it, but in all honesty I just never saw the point in them.

Isn't that the female spelling?

#10 Gudrun

If you use both the parents' surnames (?) a 'middle name' is superfluous IMO.  You still have 3 names to help distinguish you from others. You still have a name in the middle.

Apart from that it's just a collection of syllables anyway!

Dominic with a c is the classic spelling, ck as far as I can tell was popularized by Americans, specificially Americans who like calling Dominics, Nick.

I would just call him Nick for short regardless. laughing2.gif

Lukas is pleasant but all the forms of Luca, Lucas, and Luke feel very popular to me, and of them my favourite is Luke.

Jasper is nice.

Gabriel and Dominic are my favourites. I'm not especially fond of Gabe, though. Nor Dom.

#12 wish*upon*a*star

Jasper is my favourite

#13 vanessa71

Either Dominic or Gabriel would be lovely.



#14 Mille-Mille

It's a bit annoying really, DD was born in Norway and they don't allow double surnames unless they are hyphenated (I'm not into hyphens).  So she has my surname as a middle name and DPs as her last name, it's pretty daft really and annoys me immensely.

Since DS is to be born here he can have both surnames and no middle name, but then he is different to DD and it annoys me.  DD is not an Aus citizen so we can't change her name here.  

We are toying with the idea of having her name changed in Norway (remove my surname as middle name) and then not give DS my name (confused yet?).  So their names have continuity.

Brffff I don't know!

Jasper- lovely, but it is quite common if you don't want a common name
Dominic- nice, my pick of the list with Camille
Gabriel- ok, but I wouldn't use it with Camille
Lukas- lovely, this would've been my choice if you didn't say it's off the list

So Camille and Dominic.

Wow OP, I absolutely LOVE your list. I'm not fond of Liam but you took it off anyway and I prefer Luca/Luka to Lukas.

Between Jasper, Dominic and Gabriel I really can't decide. I love them all. With Camilla, probably not Jasper. The both end in an 'ah' sound with our accent but ends in the letter a and the other in letters er and that bothers me with names for some reason, especially in a sibset.

That means I vote Gabriel or Dominic. I wanted Dominic for my DS3 but DH didn't like it. He is an Isaac now instead but I pushed for Dominic right up until a few minutes before he was named!!

I like Gabriel the best from your list. I think it goes well with your DD's name.

Not sure why you can't do the same as what you have done with you DD and just have your surname as a middle name so the kids have the same surname?

#19 Xmansmum

Is it not weird to have a surname as a middle name? We only did it like that in Norway because I was adamant DD have my name as well as DP's and i'm dead against hyphenated names.

But you may have given me some clarity and i'll now consider making life a bit easier and use my name as middle name for DS also, thanks!

I have my mom's maiden name as my middle name. Hasn't ever been much trouble.

#22 Mille-Mille

Posted 16 January 2013 - 07:20 PM

Cool, DP and I have decided then that my surname will be the middle name.  Yay a decision has been made, and i'm happy with my few first name choices.  I guess we will wait to see which one sticks when he is born.

I'm still open to new suggestions...

#23 Gudrun
