Cosmo is quirky, and I like it, but can't see it for my child if that makes sense.

TallulahBetty Tue 20-Aug-13 20:14:17

Hadley. Never heard of this before, but I like it. Maybe it reminds me of Tony Hadley?

Farrah or Hester imo

Astrid is great, one of my favourite girl names!

I also like Beatrice and Iris.

resurrecting this thread without the namechange.

i still really really like Iris, but both DH and DM have turned their nose up at it.

really not coming up with any other favourites for boys either.

Renee or Farrah

AurorasShoes Thu 19-Sep-13 02:52:42

Haven't read the whole thread but from your original list I like:

Artemis (with nn Arti)
Astrid
Beatrice/Bea
Inez
Tabitha
Thea (as a stand alone name)
Delphine instead of Delphi

Edith/Edie - like a lot
Esme -- ok
Hester/Hettie -- very nice
Iris -- dislike
Polly -- dislike (parrot)
Sylvie -- love

I love Romy and Inez from your original list too.

mathanxiety Thu 19-Sep-13 03:40:04

Elliott -- very nice
Ivor -- 'the engine'
James/Jamie -- nice but maybe a bit bland?
Miles -- nice
Remy -- love
Reuben -- love
Thomas -- like a lot and like Tom as nn
Theo -- nice
William -- nice but maybe a bit bland?

How about Thaddeus?

Love Beatrice, Iris, Polly and Theodora.

CruCru Thu 19-Sep-13 14:53:19

I love Beatrice. Would you consider Delphine rather than Delphi? I think the latter may be mispronounced quite often (has a similar sound to Sophie).

MummyPig24 Fri 20-Sep-13 07:45:17

Delphi, Inez or Thea

moobaloo Fri 20-Sep-13 08:29:42

My favourites are:

Beatrice/Bea
Edith
Farrah
Hester/Hettie
Renee
Tabitha
Theodora/Thea/Teddy

top three probably Edith, Tabitha and Theodora as I love names with a 'th' in them (also Meredith, Elizabeth etc. smile )

NomDeClavier Fri 20-Sep-13 09:13:28

Of your original list:

Astrid
Edith
Hester/Hettie - I love, love, love this
Iris
Kit/Kitty - not as a name on its own but I live it as a nickname
Sylvie
Tabitha
Theodora/Thea/Teddy

Iris is a beautiful name.

Hettie

neenienana Fri 20-Sep-13 13:24:39

two of the names on my shortlist are here, Iris and Sylvie. I am also considering Nell. Of your boys names I like Reuben. Good luck!

nevergoogle Fri 20-Sep-13 13:28:10

Iris and Sylvie are lovely aren't they, can imagine these names for sisters.

MiaowTheCat Fri 20-Sep-13 15:15:49

Esme I love, but I didn't want to duplicate initials so dd2 didn't get it. Hettie I love too, but I'm biased since I taught an adorable one!

exoticfruits Fri 20-Sep-13 15:29:24

Edith

BettyBi0 Wed 25-Sep-13 09:37:58

Hester or Iris are great

nevergoogle Tue 22-Oct-13 11:49:02

Double drat. Having decided on Iris, DH and everybody else I've canvassed hates it.

pants.

DH likes Adelaide, Thalia, Hester.

Can anybody suggest some names we might like based on my and DH's list?

LadyGoneGaga Tue 22-Oct-13 13:15:33

I have an Iris. She's beautiful! I also like Esme and Sylvie from your list. We can't have Sylvie though as DH used to have a cat called it. I think it's gorgeous though. But would also alliterate and my married name already alliterates so could be too much.

My current lead fave is Marnie.

How about Isla if everyone is vetoing Iris? (insane, wrong people!) Similar sort of sound but perhaps slightly softer.
