I'm pregnant with baby number 2 and having a bit of difficulty coming up with names. Our first son's name is Lucas. Any advice/ name suggestions would be great. Preferably something a bit beachy and a little bit different.
GIRL
Oakley
Layne (probably not right with Lucas)
Ivy (not that beachy but still like it)
Pearl (can't use this name but love it)

BOY
Flynn
Finn
Nate

Don't really like Kai or Taj

Girl
Leilani (Hawaiian name meaning heavenly Blossom). *My niece has this name and most people say how beautiful it is.
Summer *have known several girls named Summer. Not my favourite thing to name after a season, but lots of people like it.
Roxy (derivative of Roxanne meaning Dawn) *Have known a Roxy and she was pretty difficult, but lots of people love the name.
Genevieve (Celtic name meaning white wave)
Coco (French) *Beachy aspect is after the surfer Coco Ho.


Kelly (for boy or girl - Irish/Gaelic) *Beachy aspect is after the surfer Kelly Slater.

Boy
Brody (Irish/Gaelic possible meaning could be Brother )
Dax (English meaning Water) *know a Dax - he is a talented Dancer
Dane (English origin meaning from Denmark) *Beachy aspect is after the surfer Dane Reynolds. Also it is DSs name, but we named him after a friend.

Some great suggestions original.gif
Love the names

Sonny (but its my BF's DS name)

Tate (already have a close family friend with this name

Bronte (like but don't love)

Looking for something a little more subtle than ocean, tide, island etc.

If its a girl her middle name will be Lechelle after my mum so Shell/ Shelley are out.

What are people's honest thoughts on Oakley? I love the name but not sure if its just too much of a brand.  

Still love Finn/ Flynn if a boy

Good lord. Oakley is terrible. I'm sorry but you asked for an honest opinion. I think Finn and Beau are great. Brodie sounds very surfer like as well.

#25 Pssst...

Posted 09 February 2013 - 11:57 AM

What about Reni? It's a variation on Ren which is Japanese for water lily (not quite beachy but still water related)

Reni Lechelle works quite well as does Lucas and Reni

You could go for a colour name like aqua, teal or azure? Not sure if they're too out there for your style though

Boys I got nuthin'!! biggrin.gif
