Daisy has long been my favorite, but I think I need a back up name so please rate these ones:

Jasper Dash and Daisy
Jasper Dash and Nell
Jasper Dash and Wren
Jasper Dash and Pearl

My husband believes in waiting til the last minute, as this is how we came upon the other two names, but I like to have a little bit of planning!

Boys names are looking like this:

Jasper Dash and Eddie
Jasper Dash and Felix
Jasper Dash and Quinn
Jasper Dash and Harley
Jasper Dash and Rio?
Rusty and Barnaby recently got shot down in flames so they are out

Thank you in advance for your opinions and /or suggestions!

From your list I love Nell and Daisy.

I like Jasper and Felix or Jasper and Quinn. I  might use Quinn as a NN for Quentin or Quinlan though.

Girls side, I like Wren best but Daisy is fine.

Boy's list - I like Felix and Quinn.

Girl's list - these are pretty fabulous!! Hard to choose best one. I don't think you can go wrong with any of these...Wren is very cute, I've always loved Nell, and Daisy is lovely and I'd stick to it if it's been your longtime favourite.

Daisy Nell?

PP Loathe?  Seriously?
OP they are all lovely names...recognisable but not popular.
For girls I like Daisy and Pearl. For boys, Felix and Rio.
Good luck original.gif

As per an earlier thread I think all your girl options are wonderful.   They all have the right spunk and cool to team with the sibset.  Hard to rate in fact.  Obviously if you like Daisy the best then Daisy.  If it is competing equally with one or more of the other options then consider that two siblings would have the same initial and maybe Daisy being a teeny bit close to Dash.

Aside from that I guess Wren stands out as being a little more unusual than all the others which may be in its favour for you.  But I repeat, ALL are seriously gorgeous choices.  And Nell is a palpitator for me.

With the boys I don't seem to be so much on your wavelength though I love the already names of the brothers.   From your prospective thoughts my support goes very definitely to either Felix or Barnaby, of themselves and with the brothers.  Quinlan would go really well too.

Jasper Dash and Daisy - very cute
Jasper Dash and Nell - I love the name Nell
Jasper Dash and Wren - I like this as a MN, but no so much as a first
Jasper Dash and Pearl - Love!

Jasper Dash and Eddie - I like the name Eddie, but don't think it suits the others as much
Jasper Dash and Felix - Great
Jasper Dash and Quinn - Love
Jasper Dash and Harley - Really don't like
Jasper Dash and Rio? - Don't think it goes, how about Ray?

It think we have similar taste in names OP original.gif I am really loving the name Gilbert for a boy, WDYT?
The NN Gil is really cute.

I also like Tully for a girl which I think suits the others you've chosen. We had it on our list for Freya and I saw it again recently and was reminded how much I loved it wink.gif

Wow thank you so much for your wonderful responses!
I also worry that Dash and Daisy are a bit close but obviously Dashh was going to be a Daisy if he was a girl and I didn't consider at the time that I might still end up with a Daisy....
Anyway, hence the need for a back up!
It's great to get some opinions, especially for Wren which I am not breaking out to my family because I just know what they will say! My DH just has to get past his Ren and Stimpy thing too!
Felix lost my favor a bit after I tried to imagine calling him feely for short! No way. But I think it still goes the best.
I don't like Quinlan...
Yep PP Tully is beautiful but I live in north Qld so it's a no for me
And I think Gilbert is charming! Thanks to Ann of green gables. Our surname starts with a G tho.
Thanks again everybody and I will be back soon with some middle names!!!!!

#19 WhimsicalDragonfly

Posted 27 February 2013 - 10:28 AM

Will keep an eye out for the middle names!

#20 Cirrus

Quinn, Eddie, Daisy and Nell are the nice ones IMO

As an adult Eddie would hopefully get Ed or Edward

#21 Reynell

Nell and Pearl from your girls list
Felix and Quinn from your boys


#22 two+three

Posted 27 February 2013 - 12:23 PM

I really like Daisy. I don't mind Nell, but prefer Nellie.

For a boy I really like Felix.  Eddie is OK too.

Good luck!

"Hey, come here a second," my mum said as she replaced the book in my hands with a wooden spoon covered in what I prayed was red sauce.
