Can anyone help with names for our 2nd baby - sex unknown. Due in May (I don't like the name May btw!)

We like traditional sounding names.

DD is Poppy Violet so if we have a girl I'd quite like a flower name, probably for the middle name.
William is a family name on my OH's side so we will probably have that as a middle name for a boy.
Our surname is a one syllable quite English sounding surname which is lucky as pretty much everything goes.

My absolute favourites are: Ava Rose and Dexter William. The problem is my OH doesn't like them - but these are the only names I really like. Well, he doesn't 'mind' Ava but he hates Dexter. Men!

Anything similar to those at all?

Any suggestions? Thanks!

OMG i love Ottilie! Ottilie Rose still sounds nice I think? Hhhmm I'd never even thought of that. I will suggest to OH and see what he thinks - we can't agree on any at the mo - although girls names always seem easier imo.

I have taken a bit of a fancy to the name Ottilie recently.
I have two girls and no plans to have any more... but if i did then they might well be an Ottilie.

boys names I can't do though.
Steven or Paul those were my choices had we had boys.

Ottilie is nice although you would have to be careful if your name was something like Buttery ...but what are the chances if that?!? wink
