I had a massive long list, I've managed to shorten it down to these,but now I'd quite like some more to add grin opinions on these are welcome too.

Current DC are Sky and Arlo.

Boys;

Atticus (nn Kit)
Idris
Otis
Pasco
Fenn
Jude
Percival
Rufus
Corin
Elmer

Girls:

Artemis
Merewyn
Odette
Etta
Betsy
Nell
Agatha
Vita
Merryn
Myrtle
Mildred
Hester (hetty)

This is quite a short list for you! wink

Love Atticus/Kit and thought you'd pretty much decided on it?
Like Idris
Like Jude
Please not Elmer - great name for an elephant but not for a boy imho

Hester is my favourite of the girls' names by a long way. I like Betsy and Nell but only as nicknames.

grin it is isn't it!

My only problem with Atticus (which I just LOVE) is that it's quite long compared to the other two DD names,I worry it'll look odd next to them IYSWIM.

My problem with Betsy and Nell is the same as yours,but I don't seem to like any of the full name versions...

Not Elmer (Fudd Looney Tunes character), Percy and Mildred sound old rather than classic. Like the others.

I don't think it matters that Atticus is longer than your other DS's names (which are wonderful names btw!), it still goes with Sky and Arlo. I prefer Atticus to the nn Kit though, but that's just me.

How about Otto?

FriggFRIGG Wed 10-Apr-13 17:24:39

I like Otto,but two O ending names might be a bit much...

Otis, Jude and Rufus are great, and would go well with the other two.

Artemis is fab but two "Ar..." names could be too much. Also like Nell and Vita.

OneHundredSecondsofSolitude Wed 10-Apr-13 17:33:42

Kit is an odd nn for Atticus. A bit like saying his name is Jonathan but we call him nick

Fenn is also peculiar

thermalsinapril Wed 10-Apr-13 17:43:28

I thought that too, OneHundred. Wouldn't it be Tic?

FriggFRIGG Wed 10-Apr-13 17:46:33

Nah....it's been agreed it was a fab nn/full name combo on a thread before...so it's fiiiiine wink

Tic would be an awful nn though. Kit much better if less obvious.

Cassius is nice, I like Atticus and Hester.

Also like Hattie and Jacinta (nn Inta)

Bowlersarm Wed 10-Apr-13 18:54:23

Love Kit Rufus and Nell

MortifiedAdams Wed 10-Apr-13 18:56:55

What about Pascal for a girl?

Otis and Etta are my favourite from your lists

Boys I like

Atticus
Jude
Fenn

Girls I like

Merryn
Nell

grin

Of those I think Fenn and Merryn would work best with the names you have but I also think that's not v nb and you should pick the name you love best!

This list is great! We have very similar naming tastes... < marks place>

FriggFRIGG Wed 10-Apr-13 19:56:09

I like Cassius,but I'm not keen on the meaning...Pascal is lovely,but almost rhymes with our surname,and has the same first letter so it wouldn't work sad

Thanks everyone,this is really helpful thanks

I have no idea what my DCs names mean! Never even thought to check, just liked the names.

Great names on here though OP

Coconutty Wed 10-Apr-13 20:15:53

Hector is nice too.

FriggFRIGG Wed 10-Apr-13 20:26:01

I like Hector in theory,but the meaning rules it out for me again.gah!

toffeelolly Wed 10-Apr-13 20:28:15

Love Jude for boy ( my ds is jude) and Betsy for a dd. Two great nameswink

But the word 'hector' isn't the same as the meaning as the name Hector. I love Hector. smile

And Horace.

DustingIsEasy Wed 10-Apr-13 21:05:05

Rufus and Merryn
