Jay Landon 2nd
Landon Jay - prefer Logan to Landon - sounds like landing
Jay William - 1st
Landon William

what about Liam as a fn Liam and Riley go great.  Jayden would be nice too -  has the family connection Jayden William would be lovely

Beth Louise (not short for anything) nice,  doesnt go with sibset
Hailey Louise  - I only like the Hayley spelling - otherwise HAIL,  too many L'sounds
Hailey Elizabeth - nice,  goes ok with sibset
Hailey Jay - ok  Hayley Jayda or Hayley Jaydelle/Jaydel nice
Molly Louise - too many l's, Molly doesnt go with sibset
Molly Jayda - ok
Molly Elizabeth ok
Indy Louise - nice
Indy Elizabeth - goes well with sib set

Eloise as a mn too would be nice

I think names like Jordan, Drew, Emerson, Camryn, Reece, Aubrey, Jayden, Leighton, Morgan, Rowan, Blair, Elliette go better with the sibset

Thanks for everyones replies

Our fave name for boys is Jay at this stage but we are both happy with either Jay or Landon (nice to agree lol)
(im liking Jay William)

My fave girls name is Molly Elizabeth hubbys is Hailey Louise or Hailey Elizabeth

Prob is I dont like Hailey and he doesnt like Molly lol oh dear
We both like Beth and Indy. We are both a bit headstrong and would like our fave name....shame we dont have the same fave like the boys name original.gif
Might have to go into it with a few girls names and if we have a girl then see what suits her? Dont really like that idea but then we are both happy our fave names arent discounted. At least we have 2 other names we both like original.gif

Any more opinions on the names are greatly appreciated thank you original.gif

Oh and might have a talk to DH about Hailey Louise it is a bit of a mouthful Hailey Elizabeth sounds a bit better I think
