Well my son is Felix so I'd pick that!  biggrin.gif Remy was high up on our list too. As a brother for Atticus, I really like Caspian though.

Juniper is gorgeous.

I would keep the following and scrap the rest.

BOYS
Lucian- my choice by far
Otto- I like this, but not with Atticus

GIRLS
Aurora- I would keep this for a middle name only to avoid a second A first name
Isadora
Adeline- ditto Aurora
Frances
Beatrix- my favourite of the list for a first name
Elena

#13 Peppery

Posted 25 January 2013 - 10:21 PM

Actually I keep coming back to Juniper on your girls list.

#14 Kay1

Posted 25 January 2013 - 10:24 PM

Yep Juniper and Caspian.

#15 Gudrun

Posted 26 January 2013 - 01:02 AM

Personally I would narrow the search to complementary Latin names but 'that's just me'.

#16 Freddie'sMum

Posted 26 January 2013 - 07:28 AM

Boy - Felix

Girl - Beatrix

I think we have very different styles of names OP - for instance - whenever I hear Juniper - my mind goes to Life of Brian (Monty Python movie) where Brian hides behind the Juniper bush.  I can't imagine naming a child Juniper.





#17 ShamelesslyPooks

Posted 26 January 2013 - 07:54 AM

Juniper is my perfect, perfect girls name. It's pretty but strong, it's just... Love. So obviously I don't want you to use it because it's mine, even though DP would have to sustain some kind of brain injury for it to be possible he will ever agree to it.

Boys, I really like Lucian and I think it sits strongly alongside Atticus, they both have ancient Greek origin I believe. I would like something like that to tie them together, while at the same time being very different in sound.

#19 Imaginary friend

Posted 26 January 2013 - 09:58 AM

The names aren't really my style either but from the lists I do like Zelda for a girl.



Have heard Poet before, Old Grey Mare, actually I dont mind that either.

#20 vanessa71

Posted 26 January 2013 - 10:32 AM

My picks are Lucian and Astrid.



#21 Feralina

Caspian and Astrid would be my pick. But I like almost all of them!

With your there with the Life of Brian reference, "of course they're juniper berries, they're juniper bushes!"

Love Beatrix as well.

GIRLS

Adeline

Any of these would be beautiful. I especially like Caspian and Beatrix (probably because I'll never get my Beatrice).

After reading a blog by a lovely lady with a gorgeous little girl named Poet, I think it's a beautiful and sweet name, and suits her daughter so much. I wouldn't use it myself, but I can see the appeal and still think it's a pretty name.
It's no different to naming a child 'Mason', 'Hunter' or 'Archer' etc to me. Just because a name isn't to your personal taste doesn't mean it's 'wrong' or shouldn't be used. If you don't have anything nice to say or anything constructive to add then yes, you probably should just stay out of it. original.gif
