I would love to call a girl Martha but am not allowed. :-( It was my Gran's name and I think its just beautiful.

Henry...I love that. When my best friend was pregnant 4 years ago, I begged and begged her to call him Henry!

So yep, thats my choices! :-)

Like all of your boys names, but would say Adam & Arthur are my Lear favourite.

From girls list I like Faith and Harriet.

Boys: I really like Adam, Arthur and Edward. Dislike Zachary, Noah and Elijah.

Girls: I'd choose Harriet or Lydia. I don't dislike any of the others but I'm pretty bored of Matilda as there are so many of them.

I love Martha, it sounds lovely for any age. And Henry is gorgeous for a boy.

Henry and Lydia. Or Faith!

Edward Henry or Oscar.
Matilda or poppy.

Henry, Oscar and Arthur would be my favourites from the boys.

Matilda, Harriet and Martha from the girls!

Good choices overall!

Boys- I like Edward and Henry best, both are good with John. Only one I don't like is Elijah as 'jah' followed by John is a mouthful.

Girls- I think Martha, Faith or Phoebe sound nicest with Elizabeth. A 3-syllable first name with Elizabeth feels a bit much, so I wouldn't go for Lydia, Harriet or Matilda even though I like them.

12 weeks pregnant today and here are my name lists. Middle name for a boy would probably be John, and for a girl definitely Elizabeth. Some of these I love, and some I just like. Please let me know which are your favourites.

Elijah
Arthur
Zachary
Edward
Adam
Henry
Oscar
Noah

Lydia
Martha
Harriet
Faith
Matilda
Phoebe
Poppy
