Admittedly I'm not a huge fan of any of the girls names but would prefer Ivy Madeleine of the three.

Alexander is the only name on your boys' list I like, so I would vote for Ted Alexander. Definitely not Axel!

I would go for Madeline Lorelle and Ted Alexander. Unless you'd consider Edward or Theodore with Ted as a nickname? I would like Theodore Axel. I don't mind Axel as a middle name.

I LOVE Ted Arlo, or Ted Axel, great combos!

I like all your girls names and all combos. I'm sure you will find the right one.  original.gif

I'm not a fan of your boys names but they are all perfectly good names, just nms. That's with the exception of Axel though, it's dreadful.

I like Ivy Madeline - very pretty.

I would use Theodore and shorten to Ted. Theodore Axel works well, I think.

I love (LOVE) Ivy Madeline, that's just so pretty and one of the best combos I've seen on EB. And Ted is a great boy's name too, I also probably go with Alexander but I don't hate Arlo. Axel... not so sure, sorry!

I love Ivy Madeline. I like both Ted Alexander and Ted Axel but do not like Ted Arlo.

Granddad Ted was definitely not actually an Edward/Edmund/Edwin/Theodore? I don't dislike Ted but I thought in that generation it was usually a nickname.

(If I was picking, I like Edmund best).

thanks for the replies yes he was actually William Edward but didn't really like his name and was always referred to as Ted, we actually never called him Granddad only Ted.  I like Theodore though.  I don't mind the name Axel but wasn't sure of it with Ted I thought Alexander and Arlo actually sounded better.  We had thought of William as a middle name other than that we really wanted an A middle name.  Any suggestions appreciated!

#12 The Awesome One

Posted 02 May 2012 - 11:35 AM

Ivy Lorelle and Ted Alexander

Also hubby really liked Sydney for a girl but was happy for me to have my nana's name, but he has also suggested it for the boys middle name Ted Sidney!!  I'm really not sold on it..

I thought Ted Alexander sounded pretty good.

Other A names I like:
Ted Amos
Ted Aidan
Ted Ari/Avi
Ted Alan

Ivy Madeleine is lovely. Not keen on either Ted.

Ivy Lorelle


Ted Alexander

#18 Etcetera

A short name like Ted needs a longer middle name to balance it, so I would choose Ted Alexander.

#19 Peevish

Posted 04 May 2012 - 07:54 AM

Madeline Lorelle and Edward (nn Ted) Alexander.

#20 Gone-Country

Ivy Madeleine
Ted Alexander

Ivy Lorelle gets my vote.
Is your grandad's full name actually Edward? If it is then I would use that but still call him Ted. I just think Edward flows better than Ted with most middle names. If you are just using Ted then I would go with Ted Alexander.

#22 kerilyntaryn

Posted 04 May 2012 - 10:08 AM

what about naming him Edward and call him Ted

or Theodore Alexander

what about William as a middle name

As much as I like the sound of Ivy Lorelle, I would avoid it as it sounds like 'ivy laurel', and makes me think of a wreath! I wouldn't pair Ivy with an adjective-sounding middle name, so I would have to say that Ivy Madeleine is a better choice (I am not a fan of Madeleine spelt Madeline).

I like the sound of Ted Alexander. With such a short first name, I think you need something longer in the middle, however if you were going to give your son the formal name of Theodore or Edward, then Arlo would work in the middle spot. Although I like the name Axel a lot, I don't think it goes well with any of these first name options.

#24 kerilyntaryn

Ivy Lorelle - it's special to share the same mn with your daughter

Ted Alexander or Theodore Alexander would be nice for a formal name

or Theodore William  or Edward Alexander or Edward William

#25 ohboy

Posted 08 May 2012 - 07:05 AM

I would go with Ivy Lorelle but that's because I really dislike Madeline (or any Madi name)

Ted Axel is fantastic! Arlo is my all time favourite boys name, but Axel sounds better imo.  Alexander is another name I really dislike

A MIDDLE NAMES
Aden/Aiden/Aidan/Ayden/Aydan or however you like to spell it LOL
Amos
Adam
Amon
Anton
Archer/Archie
Arno
