Due in Oct with DC two and really struggling with names, it seems much harder than last time.

If I like the following names what else may I like, any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Girls - ivy, olive, Ida, delphine, frida
Boys - Ralph, Bruno (DH has veto'd), etienne

Ps
DS1 is Ernest which unfortunately rules out anything which gets shortened to bert & Eric (both of which I quite like!)

Xavier

Oh Ernest is so cute!

None of your listed names are doing much for me, tbh. Etienne is sweet but I don't like alliterative siblings. Really dislike Bruno, sorry.

Ernest and Vivienne
Ernest and Harriet
Ernest and Charlotte
Ernest and Florence
Ernest and Isobel
Ernest and Alice
Ernest and Helena

Ernest and Wilfred
Ernest and Frederick
Ernest and Tristan (yum)
Ernest and Sebastian
Ernest and Laurence
Ernest and Bartholomew

Great names people! I really like Winifred but I can't use unfortunately as it is the name of someone in the fanilies cat! I like Agatha and Agnes but hate Aggie which I think they could get shortened to.

Reginald was on my list but DH veto'd that too.

Vita is interesting.

Keep them coming

If you like Winifred how about Henrietta? Could be nn Hetty or Etta? Or Josephine?

How about Raymond if you like Reginald? Ray... smile
