Jay and William are family names Landons one we like. (first name will not be William)
Beth Louise (not short for anything)
Hailey Louise (DH prefers Hayley spelt with an I)
Indy Louise (no not short for anything DH doesnt like the longer versions)
Lousie, Elizabeth and Jay are family names (will only be used as middle names!)
We already have DS Riley and DD Piper although im not fussed on a great sibset I just want to like their names on their own

I really like Indy for a girl, prefer Indy Louise over Indy Elizabeth. For I boy my favourite is Jay Landon
Posted 20 February 2013 - 06:15 AM
I prefer the girls names in the order you have listed them. No real prefetence with ur boys names
Posted 20 February 2013 - 08:43 AM
Jay Landon 2nd
Landon Jay - prefer Logan to Landon - sounds like landing
Jay William - 1st
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

I confidently pick Jay Landon and Beth Louise
Posted 20 February 2013 - 02:04 PM

Landon Jay & Indy Louise are my favorites
Posted 20 February 2013 - 06:38 PM
Thanks for the replies
like I said im not fussed on the perfect sibset I just want to love all their names individually
Jay will not be lengthened at all its a family name and adding letters defeats the point in using it for me plus love it as is
Kerilyntaryn I really dislike liam but love some of your suggestions at the end
alot are my style!!!!

Hailey Jay or Landon Jay.
Posted 20 February 2013 - 06:49 PM
I like Landon Jay, Beth Louise, and Molly Elisabeth
Posted 20 February 2013 - 06:57 PM
If DS had been a girl he would have been Molly Elizabeth!!
Although for me, Molly is the family name.
Posted 20 February 2013 - 07:47 PM
Landon Jay and Beth Louise are the best for me.
I definitely wouldn't use Hailey with Riley.
Posted 20 February 2013 - 09:41 PM
My favourites are Jay William and either Beth Louise or Molly Louise
Posted 21 February 2013 - 11:10 PM
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
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
Any more opinions on the names are greatly appreciated thank you
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
Posted 21 February 2013 - 11:45 PM
sounds like you both like the ly/ley ending for the girls name - is there any others you may consider
Posted 22 February 2013 - 11:33 PM
