Names I have so far are:

For a girl - Vivienne or Beatrix/Beatrice. I also quite like Audrey, but unsure.

For a boy: Rafael

I'd quite luck some other suggestions or thoughts about those names please.

I really like Beatrix but Vivienne is also lovely smile

I like Beatrice and Rafael.

Other suggestions:
Florence
Elsa / Elsie
Betsy
Clementine
Evelyn
Rosalie

Luca / Lucas
Marcus
Rufus
Hugo
Xavier
Rafferty

Girls' - Love them all except Beatrix.
Don't like Rafael, sorry.

People put me off Clementine when I put it up here before!

I love Evelyn but a friend has called her daughter that and I would feel wrong.

I do like Luca, but once sort-of dated someone with that name, and so I'm not sure it would be right...

More boys names would be lovely please - maybe I should have given this thread a more enticing title as have not got many posts!

People seem really split on Rafael on other threads I have read, but I'm not sure why...

Audrey I am hmmmm about, even before we get into corry territory. The girls names are my great aunties' names. Absolutely love them, if I'd had a girl Beatrice would gave definitely been chosen. Raphael? Only know one, and love it. Classic, not too common and actually a very nice name. Well done, OP, good choices. smile

I really like Vivenne or Beatrice. Audrey makes me think of Coronation Street but is a pretty name.

Rafael is nice as well. Other boy names:

David
James
Hugh
Micheal
Colin

Absolutely love Rafael.

What about
Gabriel

Jago

Arlo

Conrad

Christian

Constantin.

I also love Vivienne. Would you like any more girls' names suggestions?

Vivienne is such a gorgeous name. If I was to have a baby girl tomorrow, I would name her Vivienne Clementine...... After I screamed "WTF, I didn't even know I was pregnant!!"

Not keen on Rafael, loving Luca

I don't watch corry so maybe that's why no association - I was thinking of Audrey Hepburn!

Vivienne is a bit streets ahead with me - I was thinking of Vivienne Elizabeth (surname begins with B).

I would like more boys names - thanks! I could wait another two weeks til I find out the gender before posting all of this, but I am a bit obsessed with names!

What do people think about the whole ex-boyfriend thing (not really ex-boyfriend but ex-holiday romance that all my family know about)? My DH likes the name but it feels a bit wrong.

I can't go with Gabriel because existing dd is called Gabriella (I have really outed myself with all of my various posts if anyone does know me!).

Gosh, that's loads, thanks!

Lots to think about...

MatildaWhispers Thu 26-Sep-13 14:19:38

Vivienne is lovely but I imagine it would get shortened, and I don't really like Viv.

Love Rafael.

MrsDibble Thu 26-Sep-13 20:14:10

I quite do like Viv.

Any other suggestions welcome...

EuphemiaLennox Thu 26-Sep-13 20:27:45

Agnes for a girl- simple cool classic.

Gregory for a boy.
