We don't know boy or girl so have 2 lists.  DH is notoriously difficult and vetos just about all names I sugges (like Joshua which is my fave boys name).
My fave girls name at the moment is Cassidy but I think maybe it sounds too much like DS1 who is Zachary.
Lost for middle names for boys - would like to use Glen, my grandads name, but don't feel it works well with the names on our list.  Single syllable as second name sounds too short.  Could also look at using DH's name, Brendon, for middle name.  There are no other family names that rate a look.
Girls middle name is for my grandmother who was Elsie but will change to Elise where first name has eee sound already.  Yes I know the Americanised spelling of Chelsie is not popular but please try and ignore that - I had a cousin named Chelsea who passed away and don't want to use the same spelling but like the combination to honour them both.

Juliet Chelsie
Katie Elise
Victoria Chelsie
Jessica Chelsie
Cassidy Elise
Phoebe Elise
Sara Chelsie
Jacqueline Chelsie


Thomas
Daniel
Jacob
Ryan

I like Thomas Glen.

Your girl names are lovely. I have a real soft spot for Phoebe so that gets my vote.

Does you DS always get called Zachary, or does it get shortened to Zack usually? If it's Zack, I think you could get away with Cassidy (which I think is an awesome name, BTW), whereas if its Zachary and Cassidy it is a bit sing-songy.....

Out of your girls list, I like Pheobe, Sara and Jessica best.

I like all your choices for boys names. Thomas Brendon works well together. Or if you go with Glen, I think perhaps Daniel Glen is the best option.

Good luck!

Daniel or Thomas but I think Thomas sounds better with Glen


I like all your girl names except for Cassidy and Jessica.  Juliet Chelsie.

I like Katie best from your girls names. I can't do Cassidy for personal reasons (I looked after a very ill baby in hospital called Cassidy so that's all I think of).

All your boys names are lovely, strong, traditional names!

3. Jacqueline Chelsie

4. Cassidy Elise

(Not a fan of the others)


For the boys:

1. Daniel Glen

2. Jacob Glen

3. Ryan Glen

Juliet Chelsie - This would probably be my pick of your list
Katie Elise - Prefer Katherine, but it's ok
Victoria Chelsie - Lovely
Jessica Chelsie - Not a fan, 6 out of 60 girls in my class were called Jessica
Cassidy Elise - NMS
Phoebe Elise - Nice
Sara Chelsie - NMS
Jacqueline Chelsie - NMS


Thomas - A little boring
Daniel - Lovely
Jacob - NMS
Ryan - Don't mind this.

For a girl:

Juliet Elsie
Victoria Elsie
Phoebe Elsie (my favourite)

For a boy:

Thomas Glen

I don't think a middle name has to 'go' as such with the first name.  As long as you like both names, I think that is all that matters.

Good luck!

Change Katie to Kate. Kate Elise.

Thomas Brendan.



#13 LittleYellowBirdie

Posted 27 February 2013 - 08:22 PM

I like Ryan.  But I think Thomas Glen is the best combo from your boys list.  I personally think Glen fit into any boy names in your list.
I always adore Elise and Elsie. Not really keen with your girl names list.  But I will vote Juliet Elise or Phoebe Elsie.Sorry I don't like Chelsie.  
But if you must use Chelsie, I will vote for Juliet Chelsie.
