We don't know the gender of dc3. We have two names; Charlotte and Edward.

The more time goes on, the more I get a little bored by these names.

We have a tricky surname, rhymes with Pea, is also letters and starts with an 'L'. This means names like Rosa are out because when said with surname it would sound like rosalie.

I'm not really keen on modern names but like traditional, classic but not boring or overused.

Any ideas???

It has to be Bruce if it's a boy :-)

Not Emma - would be Emily
Charlotte surname is a bit of a mouthful too!

Girls names are really hard. Ee endings are and most a endings are out! I agree that Rebecca is good.

I love Florence but dh doesn't. I might convince him yet but its very doubtful.

I also like Sophie (and its variants) but cannot use because of relations. Same reasons for Rebecca.

With boys names, I don't like names which can shortened to really popular nicknames; so daniel becomes another Dan. We all know a Steve and Matt for example.
