Love love love Walter. Was my grandfather's name, my brother's middle name and my nephew's middle name...
Out of the girls...
Frankie, sweet as, my stepcousin's daughter is Frankie;
Also like Anouk.
None of the others are my style.

for boys anything but wolf and ace........
Posted 22 January 2013 - 06:07 PM
Wolf is my brother's middle name. He has always liked it and I like it too, but it was a bit of a family name.
I like Ace but I've generally heard it as a nick for Alexander. Similarly I'd also like it for Alastair though that's less traditional I think.
Roux is nice but while I love the pronunciation, I prefer the spelling Rue, because I like the herbal/floral connotations. And roux does make me think of gravy, sorry.

Adore Enzo and strangely like Walter!
Frankie is a fav of mine but I could only imagine using it as a nickname and don't like the full versions much. Anouk is quite good but when I read your list I immediately thought 'Lux'.
Congrats on the BFP!

I will say I like Frankie, but only short for Frances or Francesca.
Posted 22 January 2013 - 06:28 PM
I like Walter and Wolf. I do a lot of cooking and just can't like Roux, that's a sister for Stock. LDD has some very good suggestions.
Posted 22 January 2013 - 06:31 PM
Frankie and Iggy but only if they are nicknames for Francesca and Ignatius
Posted 22 January 2013 - 07:00 PM
IMO they are all awful and any child named any of those names is likely to be bullied.
The funny thing about this comment is that I have a really, really, unusual name that you would probably think is "awful", yet I was never teased for it despite growing up in quite a backwards, narrow minded country town (apologies to my townsfolk).
It's not the kids who have a problem with "weird" names, it's their parents - some kids will pick up on this and run with it, use it to bully. But if they aren't being teased for a name it's for the lunch they brought with them that day or the shoes they wear or that they kissed their dad when they got dropped off at school that morning. Kids will find something.
I am eternally grateful for the name my parents gave me. It is unique, and suits me. Whatsmore I think i suit IT, and that, to me, is a gift (to live up to a name).
I hope to give that to my children, as well.
I think I agree with PP about Roux. I just love the spelling, but it is too foody.
Great suggestions everyone, especially la di dah. I do love Fox but I already know one. How do you pronounce Yitro?
Keep the suggestions coming good people of EB land!
Posted 22 January 2013 - 07:36 PM
I've heard a little bit of accent-jiggling before, but usually Yee-tro.
Posted 22 January 2013 - 07:58 PM
I love Lux btw!
Posted 23 January 2013 - 02:10 AM
I like Louis and Wolf and Louis and Manon.
Posted 23 January 2013 - 08:25 AM
Those are names I would never choose so feel free to discard my opinion but the ones I prefer are enzo and walter. With frankie as a nn for a more formal name.
Posted 23 January 2013 - 08:46 AM
Manon is swoon worthy but I wonder if the typical Aussie accent would butcher it.
Remy would be my pick for Louis's brother.
Posted 23 January 2013 - 09:19 AM
Congrats on the BFP!
I like Iggy and Anouk.
Posted 23 January 2013 - 10:17 AM
Wolf or Iggy
Posted 23 January 2013 - 10:26 AM
Walter and Anouk
Walter is a rip snorter of a name and is way more effortlessly cool than some of your others which (please don't take offence) seem to be trying a little too hard.
Posted 23 January 2013 - 02:18 PM
Alba & Wolf are my faves from your list.
Frankie & Ace are awesome also.
Ooh I do like Roux too! (DD3's nn is Roo)
Posted 24 January 2013 - 09:11 PM
PippityRoo your kids have awesome names! I would love to hear some of your name cast-offs?? Pls...
Posted 24 January 2013 - 09:24 PM
Wow, gorgeous names.
I love Enzo and Anouk!
Posted 24 January 2013 - 09:35 PM
All your choices are NMS, but I want a daughter calls Aubrey so feel free to ignore me.
Posted 24 January 2013 - 09:37 PM
Another vote for Anouk
