Eirik.

No idea if it will be a boy or a girl, quite early on (we think, not sure yet). DP and I have been talking about it and the only name we like so far has been used by a family member. sad

Mieke

SchroSawMummyRidingSantaClaus Sat 29-Dec-12 18:54:44

Quite like Anya. smile

SchroSawMummyRidingSantaClaus Sat 29-Dec-12 18:57:20

Frustrated That is one of my favourite names, reminds me of eurotrip though and how they thought Mieke was a man called Mike!

sad I do love that name though.

Such a pretty girls name though. Scandinavian possibly.

We had an exchange student called anya, she was lovely.

SchroSawMummyRidingSantaClaus Sat 29-Dec-12 19:20:47

It seems to be Dutch, it is a lovely name. Just ran it by DP and he started singing that "big girls you are beautiful" song by Mika. hmm

We're from Scotland so people might get confused. hmm Have already had a Nurse in A+E call DS Ear ache! shock

Anouk?

SchroSawMummyRidingSantaClaus Sat 29-Dec-12 19:26:25

I think there might be some teasing about that if we are still in Glasgow when he/she goes to school!

Magnus (I have one)
Frieda
Astrid (I love this)
Conan

werewolvesdidit Sat 29-Dec-12 19:30:36

Freya

werewolvesdidit Sat 29-Dec-12 19:30:58

Victor (surely due a revival?)

SchroSawMummyRidingSantaClaus Sat 29-Dec-12 19:32:20

I love all of those names. grin I had said Viktor but I keep getting cats bum mouths about it. sad Love Astrid, I think it's a brilliant name.

werewolvesdidit Sat 29-Dec-12 19:33:34

Magnus is esp good as it matches your Scots/Viking themes

werewolvesdidit Sat 29-Dec-12 19:34:57

(We're Scots/Irish/English) so my two are Magnus and Conan. If I'd had a girl I'd have been v keen on Astrid. It sounds so cool and elegant. Also matches your son's name well.

SchroSawMummyRidingSantaClaus Sat 29-Dec-12 19:35:48

I do like Magnus... DP says he's not too keen. sad

SchroSawMummyRidingSantaClaus Sat 29-Dec-12 19:36:57

Oh! He says he likes Astrid! grin

Conan is a brilliant name...

DP is Scottish on both sides, I am Scottish/German.

werewolvesdidit Sat 29-Dec-12 19:37:28

I have to say it is my fave boy's name of all time. It seems quite a marmite name. About 60% love it but some people we knew were horrified by it. FWIW it suits DS brilliantly and I adore it. You have excellent taste in names. Override your DH! smile

werewolvesdidit Sat 29-Dec-12 19:38:49

Conan is a Scottish/Irish saint. DS2 named after St Conan's Wel, a beautiful place somewhere around SW Scotland.

werewolvesdidit Sat 29-Dec-12 19:39:45

whoops - well I mean.
At least you both agree on Astrid so fingers crossed it is a girl smile

SchroSawMummyRidingSantaClaus Sat 29-Dec-12 19:39:53

You have Excellent tastes in names as well. grin I love it but I am sure some of my family would be a bit hmm.

All that matters is that it suits them, you like it and it isn't hard for them to live with.

Boardiegirl Sat 29-Dec-12 19:57:22

Conan and Astrid are great. I also love Rowan or Tate for a boy. Freya is quite popular but ive also heard Freyelle which is less so. Henley has become popular since the brand name took off in the Uk, but sounds like Henry...so ok if u also like that i guess smile
