Benjamin David, Ben/ Benny
Thomas Matthew,Tom/tommy
Briannah Louise, Ninny
Caitlin maree, caitie

Sorry OP, Brock is nms at all but I really like Thomas Matthew and Benjamin David and for your girl options I like Caitlin Maree the best.

I think the top listed names are her existing children, Miss Shelby, not her other options wink.gif



I like all the suggested names - my only thought would be that Brock would probably be nn'ed to Brockie as you seem a nn-ing family - and then last 2 children would be Lockie and Brockie - maybe not a good idea tongue.gif

Patrick James- i'm biased though (Patrick james's are lovely Tounge1.gif)

I love Hamish but DH doesn't.
Angus would be AJ
And Patrick would be Paddy if they wasn't too old sounding for a kid?

Angus James - I really love AJ as a nick, it's one I want to use, but am not over-in-love with Angus compared to Aidan, Aaron, Alexander, Alastair, August...

Patrick James - LOVE. I love Patrick!

Brock James - Not fond of Brock.

I would easily choose Patrick of your choices as they are. Though AJ is quite cute.

EDIT: Edited because I suggested Benjamin/Reuben NN Ben instead of Brock, because I'm clever like that, sorry! You have one already! Admit it's a lovely sounding suggestion though. wink.gif

Daniel (Dan or DJ) or Samuel (Sam, Sammy) could go well, as could Edmund NN Ned. I like Henry and Isaac too and they have a range of nicknames.

Patrick James fits perfectly.

Michael Ross ( same as his father) Mikey
Benjamin David, Ben/ Benny
Thomas Matthew,Tom/tommy
Briannah Louise, Ninny
Caitlin maree, caitie
Penelope Anne, Lolli
And Lachlan John, Lachie

Last name is Lawrence

Angus James - Angus doesn't go with the surname or others boys names
Patrick James - I think Patrick goes best with your surname but then you'd have 2 P Lawrence's
Brock James - doesn't go with other boys names
Angus Brock

others

Nathaniel
Stephen
James
Adam
Daniel
Jared
Jeremy
Zachary

Angus James - but then I have a Angus and a Lachlan so I love the name.

Posted 24 January 2013 - 10:16 PM

Angus is great, Gus is awesome.  AJ is nms, as per pp it's slang for army jerk but also I knew one that was a girl.  

I like Patrick too but I think Samuel or even Samson fits nicely with your other boys names, Sam/ Sammy.  I like Brock as a mn.  

How about James Patrick?  Jimmy!
