We have a little boy named Archie and we are struggling with names for our second bub due in 10 weeks.   Would love to hear any names you may have - we like Ava and Lachlan but we are not 100%.

Both are nice names, do you like Archie and Lochie? If so then maybe James (Jamie) is another option?

I think Ava and Archie sounds really sweet.

Ava and Lauchlan are ok.

how about another name that is classic but also fun - like Archie.
Something like:

Dashiell (Dash), Archie and Dash
Ernest (Ernie), Archie and Ernie


Lizette (Zetty), Archie and Zetty
Penelope (Penny or Nelly). Archie and Penny or Archie and Nellie

I know of an Archie with a brother called Oscar.

I think Oliver, Samuel, Connor, Callum or Thomas would also go well

Lachlan goes too....but I'm not a fan of Archie & Ava together.
