For a boy a name that has always made my heart melt is Luca (not sure of a middle name). But DH doesn't like it so I will never get to use it sad.gif

Apart from DD's name Eva Madeleine, for a girl names that I just love, love, love and have always had on my list:

Arabella
Alice
Zara
Stella
Lucy

DH only likes Alice and Zara though so I guess it would be one of those 2 original.gif

Winter is beautiful. I do rather love the combo of Poet Winter, but DH will never succumb to it sad.gif *sigh*


That would go so nicely with your kids' names!


Forgot to quote but la di dah I think Fox is very hip. I'd add it to my list but with a one syllable surname it doesn't work. That just leaves me with the category of "long, fussy and pretentious" names, but that's cool.  wink.gif

Thanks!

Fox is awesome. I'm about 80% sure this baby would have been named Fox, had she been a boy. DH was very very close to being convinced. Well his exact words the other night were "most probably", when I said to him that Fox would have been what we'd call bub if she were a boy. ddoh.gif

And I still pine for the name Lucian, which was to be my first son's name, but again, my DP wasn't a fan, so our son is a Luca (which I still love!!).


Our #1 son is Vincent Lucien, the Lucien is in honour of a close friend of DH who died of cancer while they were at uni together.

Boys names - my favs are my sons names!! Vincent, Keegan Atticus, Fergus Lorcan
Girls - my fav is Minerva, but was told 'no'.  So we went with Monique Sabriya - which I love too!
