Hello all,

i am looking for a bit of help for names for our first baby, due in a few months. We have not found out what we are having, so names for both sex would be aprecaited.

I do have a few criteria though (not strict, but helps to narrow down the ideas):-

1. I am looking for classic names, and names that do not require me to spell them to people.
2. I would prefer uncommon names, or at least not in the top 20.
3. I have been leaning towards two syllable names, as I feel this flows better with our surname, which has three syllables (starts with Del.....).
4. We are unsure if we will be choosing a middle name as yet, so first name help only at the moment will be fine

To give you a bit of inspiration, here are a few of the names we have been leaning towards so far:-

For boys;
Henry
Louis
Ruben

For Girls:
Elsa
Rosa
Mila

Thanks in advance or your suggetions original.gif
