Potential names list

(22 Posts)

This is my name list as it currently stands. With several months to go it is likely to change. A few more girl names than boys, seem to be out of inspiration for those having already had two.

For girls :
Allegra
Ariana
Arielle
Charlotte
Cora
Diana
Eden
Emilia
Lyra
Madeline
Maria/Marie
Orla

DH has suggested Amelie

For boys:
Alexander
Nathaniel
Orlando -DH says definitely not
Reuben

I prefer Charlotte, Ariana, Emilia and Madeline

For boys I love Alexander. It was on my shortlist. Reuben is ok aswell.

I've also got lots more girls names than boys so far

I like all your girls names, ESP Charlotte, Cora & Allegra. Boys my fav is Reuben.

Thanks. As I said I already have two boys so boys names are less exciting. grin Interestingly none of my girl names are ones I considered for either DS1 or DS2.

I should have said, considered for DS1 or DS2 had they been girls.

The two I already have are a Joshua and a Tobias. I am leaning towards Alexander if DC3 turns out to be a boy.

Love Nathaniel!

Like Cora & Orla from your girls list.

Eden or Amelie. Like all the boys apart from Reuben.

Like Ariana, Charlotte and Lyra. Only like Nathaniel from the boys' list.

I like Allegra, Ariane and Cora from your girls list and Alexander and Reuben from your boys. Orlando reminds me of Florida not mr bloom and Lyra just sounds like Lycra to me Lara is prettier

Ariana sorry finger slipped!

Love Alexander, Nathaniel and Reuben and think that all three go well with Joshua and Tobias.

I'm not mad keen on any of the girls' names except Orla, and don't think it goes as well with your boys' names. Sorry!

Thanks for your comments. I am open to any suggestions people might have?

Not sure my taste in girls' names will appeal to you, but with the older siblings' names I'd suggest

Anna
Isabella/Bella
Eliza
Jessamine
Susannah

Alexander is a great name.

Allegra is very nice, Maria/Marie too.

Emilia and Alexander. Lovely names.

I like Nathaniel and Allegra, gorgeous names. Nathaniel is nice shortened to Nate imo too x

I like Ariana, Lyra and Maria for a girl. Top pick would be Ariana (though it's a bit more flowery than my usual taste). Love Alexander (though I'm biased as it's by brother's name) and Nathaniel.

Agree with your DH re Orlando!

Today Allegra is my top girls name, followed by Emilia. Alexander has always been my top boy name but DH wouldn't let me use it for either DS. This could be its chance to shine! grin
