I am after some help with some name suggestions please
We don't know what we are having and is our first. I am 24 weeks, so still a while to decide but we don't seem to be able to find many, mainly boys, names we like/agree on and the lists we come across are all the same! So I am after some more options.
We have one boy name, Levi, and a couple of options for girls that we like, Dakota, Imogen (I love but OH isn't 100% sure) and Mila. Would love to know thoughts on these names also
Boy middle name will be William and girl middle name will be Joy. Unless a name really doesn't go, then we will find another family name that suits.
Last name is one syllable starting with C.
We also have the issue of not being able to use so many names because of nieces/nephews/friends kids.

I like Levi.
For boys: Jack (not necessarily because it goes with William, but I love the name) , Leo, Jayden, Harrison. Just some random ideas.
Girls: Lilly, Mia, Alana, Lucy, Ivy.
A mix of names to consider, or not, lol.

Levi and Imogen Joy are both really nice.
Posted 24 January 2018 - 06:52 PM
The first name to pop in my head with Levi is Seth or Reuben
I love Imogen, but sorry dont like Dakota or Mila - I prefer Amelia or Camilla

I love Levi. What a great name.
Boys - Jack, Hunter, Theodore, Cooper, Jasper, Felix, Marco.
Girls - I think Imogen is beautiful. I am currently loving Ava, Claudia, Sophia, Ella and Bella.

Imogen all the way

I love Levi!
and Levi William works well
Not a great fan of Dakota or Mila - I like Imogen but Imogen Joy is a bit hard to say - the J-J sound in middle doesnt flow that well.
Not a deal breaker though

Levi is a great name, I know a a little Levi who is cheeky and adorable!
I am struggling to get a fix on your naming style for girls - Dakota, Imogen and Mila seem like such wildly different names to me 🤔 . Of the three, I would go for Mila, but spelled Milla.

Levi is great and from your girls list, I prefer Imogen. Dakota sounds very USA, which is fine if you love it, and not sure if Mila is pronounced Mill-a or Meal-a?
Posted 25 January 2018 - 12:49 PM
I love Levi.
Liam, Linden, Lucas, Luke - Just L names I like.
Eli, Ezra, Asher, Isaac - similar feel.
I don't think Dakota as a name is appropriate, and would never use it, though it has a nice sound. Danica has a similar sound and not the same Native American rights issues. Doveva is also pretty though no one will know what it is.
Imogen is very pretty, I have always liked it. Imogen Joy doesn't sound great though.
Ingrid Joy, Indigo Joy
Alternately, I like the three-syllable-ends-in-n sound so Lillian/Vivienne/Katharine Joy all appeal too.
Mila is fine but not my style.
Molly, Mira, or Mara
Lila, Kira, Zara, Nora, Flora, Esther, Isla - Just short not too odd girls' names.

Thanks ladies, loving the suggestions, as I said we still have a while to go so keep them coming
Some of the suggested names we have already crossed out or are still considering. We both have big families with lots of close cousins etc so a lot of names we just can't use, there have been a few suggested that otherwise I would like.
Dakota may be a weird one in the mix, but it is my OH's name suggestion that I didn't mind.
Mila (pronounced as Me-la) was just one we came across and agreed me both liked, but I do like the Mil-la pronunciation. I am starting to feel this name would cause confusion...
Imogen I Love but have some convincing to do, OH doesn't not like it he just isn't sure.
Levi has been one we agreed on from the get go so loving that everyone else is loving it
Ozquoll - I guess our style is not too common/traditional but not out there either.
la di dah - I agree with L names! I love Lucas, always have but unfortunately good friends had a Lucas last year.
This has given me a few more to put past the OH

I'm not a great Levi fan but Levi William is certainly a very good combination.
I really like both Imogen and Mila but not so much with Joy in the middle.
Posted 25 January 2018 - 11:21 PM
If you're settled on Levi William, I'm just going to give some female names. Dakota Joy sounds really nice though.

Love the name Levi and it goes so well with William!
Mila is cute, this name would work for a baby, a young girl and a woman.
Imogen is also a lovely name, not sure I like it with Joy though.
