Not pregnant, just thinking about #2 and gathering ideas

I tend to like classic names that are easy to spell and pronounce. Popularity doesn't bother me either way too much although I think our favourite girls name from our first pregnancy might be too popular for me to use now.

So naming gurus - what would you suggest?

I don't know why but I thought "Lachlan and Melody". Maybe it's from a book or something? Sprung straight to mind.

James
Mark

Thanks for the suggestions everyone - keep them coming.

Interesting to see a few pop up repeatedly - James, Grace, Olivia, Zara - all lovely. Unfortunately James is out due to a close connection and much as I love Olivia, I'm just not sure I can do it having seen that awful childrens show based on Olivia the pig  sad.gif

I adore Grace - but am somewhat worried any daughter of mine would become a walking parody with such a name. Sadly grace I have not.

Fifi-trixibelle - thank you for such a comprehensive list. I think we must have very similar naming styles as you've managed to pick Lachlan's middle name, the second choice we had for Lachlan when he was born, our previous first choice for a girl, and a huge number of family names which we love but are too close to use.

What do you think of Dominic or Zachary?

Samuel
Sebastian
Oscar
Theodore
Xavier

Emmeline
Annabel
Jemima
Audrey
Claudia
Genevieve
Vivienne
