Please help. We cant agree on baby names. We're keeping the gender a surprise.
We already have a son - Lincoln James. Absolutely love his name.
Middle names we are thinking either Jack or Leon.
Havent fallen in love with anything yet, but names on the list are Finley, Sawyer, Jasper, Callum.
Middle name will definitely be Elizabeth.
Husband loves Zoe (as does my parents), but im not sold. I like the idea of longer names that can be shortened and I find it a common type name.
I think I love Aubrey,
Other names on the list are Campbell, Delilah, Sienna, Indiana.

I love Darcy (boy or girl) and goes well with your middle names. Also isn't overly common.
Out of your boys list my favourite is Finley Jack. My favourite girls name would have to be Campbell. This would also work well for a boy.
Posted 27 February 2019 - 10:50 AM
I like Callum best. Cameron or Campbell would be ok too. I think Zoe is lovely. Aubrey is ok. Sorry I don't like Delilah. Similar names Delia, Lila , Lillian, Brielle, Brianne, Breanna, savannah and Dakota. Sierra and Indiana are ok. What about Susannah
Posted 27 February 2019 - 11:04 AM
Finley Jack is a good name, Likewise Zoe Elizabeth. Can't warm to Campbell for a girl and as for Delilah... why, why, why.
I also second the suggestion of Darcy Jack.
Posted 27 February 2019 - 11:30 AM
I really like Jasper and Finley. I like PP's suggestion of Finley Jack.
Zoe Elizabeth is lovely. I prefer Audrey to Aubrey (though Aubrey is okay). Audrey Elizabeth is lovely IMO. I like Lila but not really a fan of Delilah.

Others Bronte, Sadie, Amy, Chloe, Phoebe Penelope Holly ruby lily Chelsea Matilda Talia Talitha Vanessa Tessa Natalia Miranda Nadia Tamara. Sorry I don't like Campbell for a girl
Posted 27 February 2019 - 12:51 PM
I think Finley Jack is the pick for the boys.
Quite like Sienna Elizabeth for a girl. I do like Aubrey a lot also.
Posted 27 February 2019 - 08:26 PM
I like the combo Jasper Leon for a boy.
Zoe Elizabeth is nice. Prefer Audrey to Aubrey. Audrey Elizabeth is a lovely combo too. Really dislike Campbell on a girl.
Posted 27 February 2019 - 08:44 PM
I love the name Francesca. It goes well with Elizabeth
Posted 27 February 2019 - 08:45 PM
My vote of the boys names goes to Jasper Leon or Callum Jack.
Finley is ok.
Not a fan of Sawyer.
Zoe Elizabeth is nice - short name balances long mn.
I really like Sienna and Sienna Elizabeth works well.
Delilah is ok. Prefer Lilah. Not that keen on Indiana.
Both are a bit tongue trippy to say with Elizabeth following.
But just a bit, still doable.
Not a fan of Aubrey or Campbell - especially not for a girl.
Posted 27 February 2019 - 09:50 PM
My picks for a boy are Finley Jack or Jasper Leon.
I'm not rapt in any of the girl options with Elizabeth in the middle.
Or put Elizabeth first with its feast on nicknames and a short middle eg Elizabeth Blythe

You seem to like slightly out of the box names so I think you'd be disappointed with the popularity of Sienna (3 in my kid's year 1 class), and there are quite a few called Zoe.
I've found my kids mostly always get their nickname, so make sure that's the version of the name you love. Although with one syllable names they just get their full name, in some ways that makes life easier.

My DD is Zara Elizabeth- nanna has Elizabeth too.
Audrey is a gorgeous name.
Posted 28 February 2019 - 10:28 PM
Aubrey is a boy's name, I wouldn't go with that for a girl. I'm with your DP, Zoe is nice.
Posted 01 March 2019 - 06:26 AM
I really like Finley and Jasper from your boy list. I like them a lot.
Your girl list does nothing for me. I've always hated the name Indiana. Campbell is a boy name, last name and a soup. Sienna was done to death 10-15 years. It has dated. I just think of the reddish/brown colour too.
If I had to pick a name from your girl list, maybe Zoe. Much prefer Zara if you wanted a Z name.
Posted 04 March 2019 - 12:42 AM
Jasper would be the boy pick for me.
I think both Zoe Elizabeth and Sienna Elizabeth work quite nicely together.
Posted 08 March 2019 - 04:37 PM
From your lists I like Hugo and Rose. Louis and Lucy work well also. I wouldn't use Henry / Harry as a brother with William.
Posted 09 March 2019 - 07:59 AM
Zoe Elizabeth or Sienna Elizabeth and Finley Jack would be my picks from your name lists.
If you love Aubrey, use it. Audrey is also a cute classic and similar.
Posted 12 March 2019 - 11:35 AM
I was really loving Finley (was a potential for our first born) until my brother told me it sounded like a species of frog
Im leaning towards Jasper Leon but I'm still not sure im sold on it. With our first, I loved the name Lincoln from the very start - not getting the same feeling this time around.
Still no idea with girls names. Still liking aubrey/audrey and delilah, but again not sold. Still not in to Zoe - but DP is convinced.
I feel like its harder this time around because I dont want it to clash with Lincoln.
Posted 12 March 2019 - 11:38 AM
Not a fan of Campbell or Indiana. Others are pretty equal for me.
Posted 12 March 2019 - 11:52 AM
I like the name Aubrey for a girl. Can be shortened to Bree.
I think it goes nicely with Lincoln.
I like Sawyer over the other names. Goes well with Lincoln as well.
Posted 12 March 2019 - 04:17 PM
I think Finley, Fintan or Flynn are nice
Jasper Leon is ok, yes I see what you mean, a different type of name from Lincoln
Aubrey, Audrey, Audra are nice, sorry dont like Delilah. Delia is ok, Zoe is nice, or Chloe or Zara
others Charlotte, Caroline, Clara, Mae, Adeline, Adele, Alice, Arabella, Delphine, Eleanor, Eliza, Elodie, Eloise, Elsie, Sadie, Imogen, Maeve, Stella, Thea, Ruby, Nora, Phoebe, Penelope, Juliet, Ava, Astrid, Delma, Celeste, Maisie, Annabel
Callum, Gavin, Grant, Todd, Dean, Wyatt, Rhys, Rhett, Miles, Nolan, Rowan, Cole, Cooper, Emmett, Elliott, Graham, Jackson, Harrison, Hudson, James, Sebastian, Theo, Theodore, Jude, Ezra, Edgar, Edmund, Edwin, Harris, Heath, Stuart, Wallace, Walter, Alastair
Posted 12 March 2019 - 07:40 PM
Lincoln and Audrey (yeah this one), Lincoln and Finley and Lincoln and Jasper are all really good.
I wouldn't be concerned about your brother's frogs. Frogs are good anyway and running names past family and friends is a fraught game.
Frogs is a new one on me I must admit.
ETA I like Lincoln and Delilah too.
