My friends have a Martha and a Sadie

If I had girl twins right now they would be Martha and Orla.

Thanks Bunders99 After looking at loads of names Albert and Beatrice are probably the current front runners. Still plenty of time to Change our minds though wink

My friend has a Martha (gorgeous name BTW!) and her siblings are Eva and Louis which I think sound nice together.

Ria for a girl and Jackson for a boy

Beatrice and Albert (Bertie) both sound gorgeous with Martha. We have a Ned and any day now DD will be Martha

May or Lottie?

Nancy might work too.

Isabel,

Rosa,
Rhiannon.

Hmm.. something about Esther and Martha doesn't quite work for me, there's something slightly similar about them? Annie or Penelope sounds better to me. How about Agatha?

I actually think Andrew is ok! I think if you always call your child by a certain name you've got a shouting chance of them keeping that name at school, because they'll always introduce themselves as 'Andrew' - so you might avoid 'Andy' if you don't like it! Elijah and Isaac are lovely though.

I think Esther does work really well with Martha. Also like Harriet, Susannah and Alice. How about Agnes? I think of Martha as traditional with a bit of a quirk. It's a lovely name. Hope you can find something just right!

I know sisters called Daisy and Martha. Could have Margaret on birth certificate and call her Daisy.
How about:-
Tamsin
Eloise
Eleanor
Eliza

I love some of the boy suggestions you've already had.
Would Peter work for your husband?! A bit random I know but quite a nice name.

Dilly?

besmirchedandbewildered Thu 04-Oct-12 22:20:29

Flora
Lydia
Romilly
Henrietta (Hettie)
Elodie

Mabel for a girl and Miles for a boy.

I wouldn't go for Mary & Martha, unless you are very Catholic and don't mind the biblical connection.

MoonHare Thu 04-Oct-12 16:10:11

I know a few little Martha's - lovely name - how about any of these for a sibling:

Boys
Seth
Arthur
Toby
Noah
Rueben
Peter

Girls
Esme
Eliza
Verity
Libby
Polly
Harriet
Ivy
Iris

Good luck with your decision.

Lucinda

Boys

William
Tobias
Henry

What's silly about Juliet? It's a lovely but also completely "normal" name. Prefer Julia myself, but Juliet is very pretty.

I like your name list - although I think Mary and Matilda are a bit too similar and "matchy", in my opinion. I like Juliet, Beatrice and Harriet best.

I like Frederick as a boys name best (this was what I wanted for ds, but dh didn't like it). The other names are fine (although I wonder whether he would have to put up with jokes about "Prince Alberts" when he hits adolescence?).

flopsy1974 Thu 04-Oct-12 11:47:48

Thankyou for all the help
So far I like
Mary
Rosa
Matilda
Penelope
Beatrice
Harriet (out because DH hates it)
Juliet (DH thinks its silly hmm )
Madeleine
Annie

Albert
Frederick
Isaac
Jonah
Elijah

DH wants Esther for a girl

for boys he likes names like Andrew and David (Andy and Dave - No thanks!!!)
I think I've got my work cut out

Any opinions on these lists would be welcome smile
