How do you put spaces in?

Declan Mark
Finn Richard
Hugo Mark
Corbin Richard

I love all your boys names, but I wouldn't use the combo of Finn Richard. I forsee teasing issues with those together.

Blair Alise
Mila Alise

I like Blair, but prefer Elise. Not keen on Mila.

Declan Mark W - nice
Finn Richard W   - I prefer Flynn better - nice
Hugo Mark W - good
Corbin Richard W  -  I like Corbin Mark  better  - Corbin  1st choice


Blair Alise W - not fussed on name - but goes well with Romy
Mila Alise W - not fussed on name - but goes well with Romy

I prefer Alysse spelling or Elise or Elysse spelling  or Alyssa, Elisa, Elyssa

I would go for Hugo Richard.

I don't think either Blair or Mila sounds good with the middle name Alise, and I don't think either name is as nice as Romy. Any other options?

#6 Romy 1610

Posted 07 February 2013 - 11:30 AM

Thanks for all your replies!

Middle name will have to be spelt alise, as it is my name lol

Yes didn't think about the Finn Richard teasing issues, thanks for picking up on that.

Corbin is my fav but hubby not too keen, he likes Finn the best. Declan is a new one I have come up with and is growing on me. Hugo has always been a favourite but is a bit of a bold choice I think?.

No other girls names come to mind at the moment

If you don't like common names then I'd be wary of Finn. I love the name but i know three under three at the moment and it seems to be one of those names that's growing in popularity.

Are these said differently from each other, and are they shay-na or like Shane?

I don't mind Shayna/Shaina but I think of it as pretty ethnic.

Anyone else with their pick?...

Nothing catching my eye but thank you


#11 ~Peaches~

Posted 07 February 2013 - 01:58 PM

Love your DD's name, Romy is lovely wub.gif

From your boys list I would pick Hugo Mark ( I do love Finn, but it is VERY popular at the moment, and I don't think Finn Richard is the best combo. Do you like Flynn at all?).
And I like Mila Alise from your girl choices.

Other girls suggestions-

Lila
Sage
Ivy
Maya
Juliet
Eva/Eve
Sia

Love, love, love Romy original.gif

Girls: both Blair and Mila are nice with Romy. However Blair goes a teeny bit better, Mila is almost unsayable with MN Alise and Mila is quite common now I think.

So:

Romy & Blair


Boys: I like Hugo and Finn.  However I don't think Finn goes with either MN.  Hugo goes well enough with Mark but better with Richard IMO. Also the rhythm of Romy Joanne and Hugo Richard is lovely for the sibset.  Corbin and Declan would be less common but I find them less appealing and not particularly harmonious with Romy.

So my pick is:

Hugo Richard

Romy & Hugo




#13 Plaxy

Posted 07 February 2013 - 02:24 PM

Hugo Richard and Blair Alise.

I love the names Romy and Hugo, and don't mind Blair.  Romy and Blair go well together I think.

Blythe?
Brenna?
Bridget?
Carys?
Cerys?

I like Declan Mark.  Hugo is a favourite of mine but I dislike it with Richard.  Hugo Mark is okay.  Finnegan?

Girl suggestions,

Freya
Jane
Pia
Shelby
Jenna
Alba

Eta, I like Blair and Mila but prefer Mila with Romy but not with Alise.

#16 fifi-trixibelle

Posted 07 February 2013 - 04:09 PM

Mila Alise and Declan Mark would be my pick from those.

#17 little lion

Posted 07 February 2013 - 05:09 PM

I think ahugo Richard has similar teasing potential to Finn Richard, AKA huge d*ck and thin d*ck. So my pick is Declan.

I think Blair has a similar vibe to Romy (which BTW is a lovely name). Have you considered Mira instead of Mila?

No they are pronounced the same as Shane

Ok so I have another couple to add to my list.

Girl

Bronte
Eden

Boy

Archer (nn Archie)


Thoughts?


#20 Ice Queen

Posted 10 February 2013 - 01:17 PM

I love the name Hugo.  Gorgeous!

Not crazy about Declan or Finn.

#21 Gudrun

Posted 10 February 2013 - 01:23 PM

I like both Bronte and Eden. Eden probably goes better with Romy and with Alise as MN too.  Eden would be an all-round good pick.


Archer is a bit meh for me.  And along with Archie and NN Archie a bit popular  Certainly not with MN Mark and it's not great with Richard either IMO.   Goes OK with Romy though.  Still backing Hugo.

#22 Peppery

Blair Alise and Hugo Richard

#23 Plaxy

Posted 10 February 2013 - 02:31 PM

I like Bronte and don't mind Eden, but I think Eden goes better with Romy and with mn Alise. I don't mind Archer but prefer Hugo.

#24 ~Peaches~

Posted 10 February 2013 - 07:51 PM

I like Eden. I think Eden Alise goes really well with Romy.

I like Archer, but I personally prefer Asher more. Hugo would still be my pick from your boys list original.gif

Romy and Bronte is nice

Eden is ok, a bit more popular though

Archer is ok
