On the same page as Gudrun with this one:

Maisie Joan

Edward Percy

I also like Ivy but chose Maisie as it's less used. Love Edward, but not Franklin, though I do like just Frank.

What do you mean about Gudrun? Is that a name?

Vivienne Faith (or Fay) and Edward Percy - only because I prefer the nn Eddie to Frank.

Vivienne Fay.  Not a big fan of virtue names.  Prefer Eddie to Franklin (would even prefer plain Frank to Franklin) but Percy?  No how no way, not even for a second name.

Vivienne Faith is really beautiful.
Can't choose between the boy names.
Good luck

If I was allowed to pick and choose I'd pick Vivienne Maisie and Edward Franklin.

I really like Maisie but agree it is a bit cutesy.

Most of you are much younger than me, and I can tell you that no adult could envisage an adult Jason or Kylie in the 1970s. They were such 'baby names'.  Now how old are all of the Kylie's?   Very little difference between that and Masie.

Thanks everyone ! The middle names are Percy for a boy and Faith or Joan for a girl as they are family names from my husbands family. My sons middle name comes from my family so only fair he gets a name with the next one!

I am leaning more towards Vivienne or Maisie now for a girl and off Ivy a bit  (Ivy was my great grandmothers name but very common now!). Boys name I am completely lost still lol.

When I was pregnant I loved the name Oscar for  a boy, only problem was it was also the cat's name.  Good thing I had a girl.

Edward Percy for boys.

I love all three of the girls names. Ivy and Maisie are very grandma chic. Ivy sounds the more mature of the two. Vivienne on the other hand sounds much more sophisticated. So that would inform my choice depending on the feel I wanted the name to have.

It is a name, but in this case she was referring to the EB member Gudrun , who commented above 🙂.
