What are the names if your first two DCs?

Bonnie for a girl, definitely. (I may be slightly biased - this may, or may not, be the name of my DD hmm).
And Jude for a boy.

FriggFRIGGisPoorlySick Sun 03-Mar-13 20:35:14

We obviously have very different taste then strawberry because I really like them grin

Our other DC's names are Skye (DP's choice,I wanted Matilda which is her MN) and Arlo.

<outs self>

MyThumbsHaveGoneWeird Sun 03-Mar-13 20:38:41

Blythe and Idris

Btw Io and Artemis are girls names.

FriggFRIGGisPoorlySick Sun 03-Mar-13 20:40:50

cookie thankyou,I appreciate the time that took! thanks

I have also crossed a couple off,it's hard to see what's mental sometimes....I can't even blame sodding hormones grin

Artichook Sun 03-Mar-13 20:46:32

OK. With your other DCs names I think you need something shortish and unusual but not totally "out there". I'd avoid the very old fashioned names as they are v different from your other DCs.

I like these (given the above):
Bonnie
Hebe
Ottillee
Nell

And for boys:
Pip (if you have a long name for the birth cert, otherwise this could be a burden for an adult)
Jude
(I love Ivo but its way too close to Arlo)

Mudwiggle Sun 03-Mar-13 20:48:42

If you have a DD, promise me you'll call her Scout. DH and I love this name so much, but had two DS's.

FriggFRIGGisPoorlySick Sun 03-Mar-13 20:50:16

What long name could I use for pip?

cookielove Sun 03-Mar-13 20:50:57

Frigg it was like going through a baby name book grin

But kinda fun, dh and i are trying for our first and it gave me a few fresh ideas to throw at him, although i am sure he will say no to all of them annoying bastard

MortifiedAdams Sun 03-Mar-13 20:52:03

Phillippa.
Pippa.

Please please spell it Ophelia; not Ofelia.

FriggFRIGGisPoorlySick Sun 03-Mar-13 20:52:16

I love scout it's blumming awesome.
im not sure id like doubling up the girls initials though...

MortifiedAdams Sun 03-Mar-13 20:52:51

Oops just realised Pip - you wanted boys names. So Phillip or Pippin.

FriggFRIGGisPoorlySick Sun 03-Mar-13 20:53:05

Ofelia is an actual spelling...I haven't made it up!

FriggFRIGGisPoorlySick Sun 03-Mar-13 20:54:04

Ooh,I like pippin...not sure about a grown up pippin though....I don't like Philip at all.

SilverBirdie Sun 03-Mar-13 20:55:49

Hello frigg old Sept beadit here grin
Love Jude and Roan and Sylvie is fab too.
Also like Ariella and Aniella and Pip is pretty ace!
We've got no.2 on the way grin

ShipwreckedAndComatose Sun 03-Mar-13 20:57:57

Can I suggest you blindly stick a pin in the list and if your reaction to the name is disappointment, then discard.

Keep going until you feel 'yay!'

SilverBirdie Sun 03-Mar-13 20:59:24

Oh and we fancied Rowan for a boy which I always thought could get 'Pip' given the tree/nature link

FriggFRIGGisPoorlySick Sun 03-Mar-13 21:02:15

beadit!!!! <waves madly> grin

Yay! For DC2!

And I love the suggestion of Pip for Rowan,you are clever grin

FriggFRIGGisPoorlySick Sun 03-Mar-13 21:04:32

shipwrecked that's rather a good idea...
it's kind of what I'm doing here...I'm crossing them off the list/keeping them on,based on my reactions to other people's opinions...
