For the first time, I am at an absolute loss as to where to start for baby names. In the past I have bought a book and combed through it ticking and crossing, eventually coming up with a few first/middle name options that we white board and walk past for a few weeks before coming to a final girl & boy combination.

This time I have barely had the energy to look online, let alone get serious!

I already have
Julian Elijah
Grace Alexandra
Callum Jacob
Eloise Abigail

I don't need to be super matchy/matchy - as you can see from my signature I have very diverse ages - if there was to be any matching it would be with the youngest two.

We have no idea whether its a boy or girl and we have a 3 syllable surname (but simple and relatively common).

I would love some ideas thrown around if anyone is interested  huh.gif

100% Callum for a boy
I LOVE Callum hopefully one day I'll have my own Callum. wub.gif

Callum Jacob and Callum Elijah both sound nice original.gif

For the girls names I prefer Grace but don't mind Eloise either  
I prefer the middle name Abigail for both first names tho original.gif
