Only early days, but I've been talking baby names for years. Need some boy name ideas. I like but can't use: Lucas, Hugo, Henry and Marcus.

Other names that I like and can use: Callum, Sebastian, Leo and Tobias.

Hit me with some more, please.

Ta!

Nothing to add more than a big congrats! And my fave is Callum.

Girls list is: Allegra, Stella, Giselle, Saskia and Sadie. It's safe to say that if I have a little girl, her name will be one of those!

I love Hugh, but it's my cousin's name and he said no to Harry. Luca is taken by a family member too.

Maybe this is why I have always felt like an outsider.  I had a boy first. sad.gif

Harlot, we need to coordinate better.  I thought today EB was going to be all about my boy dog thread, not your girl baby thread.  Just for that, I think you should name your baby after me.
