I think Elodie is beautiful.

Quinlan - not heard this before but just looked up the meaning and it seems to mean 'fit' and 'strong', being an Irish/Gaelic originally. Lovely meaning!!

No its not pronounced Tie-lo, unless you are English. It is a hard sound for non Welsh speakers as its between an Eye sound and an ay sound. You sound the E as in egg and then the I as in in, but close together.

I like Elodie and Quinlan - both are great underused classics that go well with Iden imo.

(agree that Ellie is quite popular as a nickname).

Sorry Quinlan (don't know where the other n came from) blush

Elodie is lovely (although Ellie is quite popular).

Quinlann is a great name as is nickname Quinn. We have a Quentin which you may also like?

I also like the suggestions of Orson, Linus and Alaric to go with Iden.

I love the look of Iago. How would you pronounce that?

What about Iona for a girl?

In Wales the name Teilo would not be pronounced "Tie-lo" but "Tey-lo" x

Thanks Iden is pronounced eye - den.
Gwennan I love your suggestions - thanks!!
I like Elodie alot as Iden means from the marsh pastures and elodie means marsh flowers. And we have strong connections to farming around a marsh area. :-)

I think Elodie is gorgeous and goes really well with Iden. Perfect choice!

Gwennan Wed 03-Oct-12 11:49:07

I haven't come across Iden before. Is it pronounced like eye-den or Eden?

Amias
Blaise
Caspar
Conrad
Digby
Fergus
Fielding
Griffith
Hart
Humphrey
Iago
Jolyon
Justus
Leland

thanks, the names i like in both list unfortunately are also the names of close family members! You obviously have similar tastes to my and DH's family. we take up 7 of those names!

I actively dislike Elodie, sorry, and don't think it goes with Iden. Quinlan is quite interesting, though.
As you like old names, how about:

Girls
Hester
Janet
Margaret
Alison
Agnes
Marjorie
Heloise
Nancy
Annette
Blanche
Eleanor (you could still have Ellie!)

Boys
Bruno
Cosmo
Alastair
Arthur
Bartholomew

DS is called Iden.

It is hard following Iden as it is quite an unusual name but suits our DS brilliantly. Iden is a very old fashioned name which we found in C16 records. We are expecting DC2 and as I am bored at work thought I would see what others thought on the following? this is my enitre list!! Can anyone add to it??

Girl - Elodie (nn. Ellie)

Boy - Quinlan (nn. Quinn)
