We have been sitting on a list of names for awhile and are still undecided. We have sort of given up but as time is running out we are starting to stress a bit.

We don't have any names we love so that makes it harder.

Boys:
Zachary Edward (DH is not a huge fan of zachary)
Mitchell Edward
Aiden Edward
Bailey Edward

Girls:
Abigail Ann
Eloise Ann
Ava Ann
Charlotte Ann

Middle names are family orientated, Edward is my dads name, Ann is the middle name of myself, my mum and my sister. Our surname starts with W and our son is Connor Laurence (middle name is family oriented as well).

Any opinions or other suggestions? Would love any help!

I like Mitchell Edward or Bailey Edward for a boy, and I love Eloise Ann, Eloise is probably what I would have named this baby if it was a girl  original.gif

I only like Zachary from your boys list but all the girls choices are nice.

Love Bailey Edward and Aiden Edward.

For girls I love Ava Ann and Charlotte Ann.

I like Mitchell from your boys' list and don't mind Zachary. The other two are completely NMS.

I only like Charlotte from your girls list. Ava and Abigail are NMS (plus I don't like the flow of Ava Ann) but I really dislike Eloise.

Zachary Edward - I LOVE Zachary!! Zachary Edward is wonderful!
Mitchell Edward - Mitchell is ok.... not a huge fan of it but it's not bad.
Aiden Edward - Love Aiden but Aiden Edward doesn't run together well to me.
Bailey Edward - Bailey is cute on a little boy... I do however struggle to see it as a grown mans name.

Girls:
Abigail Ann - Lovely. Not sure about the double AA though.
Eloise Ann - Gorgeous.
Ava Ann - A little short sounding. And again not sure about the AA
Charlotte Ann - Beautiful. My favorite on your list.

Suggestions:
Lucas, Cameron, Dylan, Ethan, Riley, Michael, Nathan, Nathaniel.
Elise, Georgia, Amelia, Maya, Chloe.

Zachary Edward  - Not a fan would you call him Zachary or would it always be Zac
Mitchell Edward - First preference
Aiden Edward - 2nd preference
Bailey Edward - NMS but that is probably due to association with someone of that name.

Girls:
Abigail Ann - I like it but the same issue as Zachary, I don't think you would call her Abigail for long, it would be Abi to almost everyone.
Eloise Ann - My favourite, I might store Elouise myself.
Ava Ann & Charlotte Ann - Both lovely but perhaps a bit popular now.

I like all the boys names but I think Aiden Edward is a lot of 'd' sound, would go with one of the others for that reason.



Girls: my pick would be Eloise Ann - Charlotte and Abigail are ok - would not do Ava Ann - even as a liker of short names, that just seems too short and choppy.

Definitely Mitchell Edward and Eloise Ann.

I'd definitely avoid Charlotte too seeing you've already got a child with a C first name.

I like Edward as a first name - nn Eddie.

Connor and Eddie

Zachary and Eloise.

I like Mitchell and Aiden as boys names on your list.

I am a Charlotte Ann myself and so I should love the name but have always thought my MN (which is also my Mother's) was a tad plain and boring.  Should I have another girl I am considering Anabelle as a MN to keep that tie but to make it something I am happier with.

Abigail was on our list for DD but DH dismissed it because it had a bibilical meaning :-( I still love it though.

Posted 19 February 2013 - 03:04 PM

I love the combo of Charlotte Anne and it was the top of our girls list but it does sort of mush together as charlatan the way i say it which had me umming and ahhing over it, if your not one to use the middle name when the kids are in trouble lol then its lovely original.gif and even so it would still be my pick

on the boys list, I'm not a fan of Mitchell or Aiden but thats just my tastes , their all perfectly good names. My pick out of them is Zachery

#15 Plaxy

Posted 19 February 2013 - 06:11 PM

Boys - Zachary if my favourite, but Mitchell and Aiden are ok too. I really dislike Bailey, sorry.

Girls - either Charlotte or Abigail. Eloise is ok, and I really dislike Ava.

#16 Cranky Old Woman

Mitchell and Charlotte

#17 Kitty Fantastico

Mitchell Edward and Eloise Ann are my two top picks and IMO, go best with Connor. original.gif

#18 Gudrun

Posted 19 February 2013 - 06:46 PM

Easy! Mitchell for a boy and Charlotte for a girl.

Otherwise I suggest Eamon or Bridget.

Thanks I just went through them with DH.
Lucas/Cameron - not too bad but not stand outs for us
Dylan - not a fan myself
Ethan- a bit too popular for us
Michael- DH bio fathers name who is not so popular
Riley/Nathan - are possible, DH is a fan of Riley me not so much.

Girls we liked Elise and maya. Would you pronounce maya as 'my- ya'if that makes sense? We both like Chloe but also too popular we think.

I think Bailey Edward & Charlotte Ann would be my favourites, but they're really all lovely names, so you could always wait and see what name suits your baby when it's born.

This is me as well. The names are OK but don't really stand out. The one I like the most is Edward.
