Mary is nice too

Why not go James rather than Jamie? I love James.

Maria wins for me.

MrsHBaby3 Thu 31-Jan-13 12:59:19

Theres a James and a Millie already in the family, which is why we thought of Jamie or Amy

I like Sammy for a boy, considered Samson for my son. Like Amelia. x

Aimee and James (not Jamie)

There is nothing to be mean about here -- they are all perfectly nice names so don't worry about that.

I like both Samuel and Jamie, although I would go for James. You never know, and it just makes more choices.

I love Amelia but it has got too popular for me. Personally, I don't really like Amy and the connection to Amelia, while not illogical, might not be clear to everyone.

Maria is such a classic you really can't go wrong. It is rare to find SUCH a classic that people aren't really using, so I think I would go with that.

Do like Sam but very popular much prefer Jamie with full name James.
Jamie and Amelia.

Sam and Amelia

Sam and Amy

I'd probably just call her Amiee/Amy and not bother with Amelia or she'll just become Milly.

I might use the flowery spelling, to remember an Amiee I lost touch with long ago.

Samuel and Maria. Maria is lovely.

Jamie and Amy of course - but then biased clearly wink

Viviennemary Tue 29-Jan-13 19:03:23

Samuel for a boy. And quite like both the girls names but Maria is a lot less common these days

amck5700 Tue 29-Jan-13 18:57:23

Sam and Maria,

similar names:

Jacob (Jake), Jonathan (Jon), Edward (Ed), Gregor (Greg)
Lillian (Lily), Sophie, Eleanor (Ella), Marianne, Diana.

I think that James (or Jamie/Jim/Jimmy) and Maria are very mainstream (certainly no questions would be asked) but slightly less common than Amelia or Sam, so that's what I would pick. One thing to think about is whether either 'go' with your other child's very unusual name. I don't think names should be too 'matchy' but a combination that is very different like say Blue and Tom might be a bit odd.

Harrysmummysarah1 Tue 29-Jan-13 18:38:44

Samuel and Amelia.
