Baby #2 is due in Dec & we are struggling to come up with any set in concrete boys & girls names.

DD is Lily Maree, last name is a 'hard' sounding name that starts with a C & ends with a K. Due to some names already appearing in the family, we are ruling out any letters that start with A, C, H, K, L, S.

Middle name for a girl could possibly be Roberta (unless we can come up with another female version of Robert (have never liked Bobby), Andrew (not shortened to Drew) or John) & boy's middle name would be John (unless the name starts with a J, then it will be Robert).

To give you an idea of where my tastes sit at the moment, I have Indie Roberta at the top of my girls list for now followed by Willow ? & DH has ruled out Ethan for a boy. I also like Logan but can't have it due to there already being an L in the family.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

We had a rule no double up on letters...then we got to #4 and only name we liked was an initial we’d already used. So far no issue with the two same letters (we had a logan and went with another l name)

Of the middle names for a girl, Robin is a nice option or you could go with a version of Ann for Andrew. Anais is lovely and not as common.

Liliy and...
