Have posted a few times before but thought I'd start a new thread instead of resurrecting and old one...

So, for background, our surname begins with D, sounds Irish, like Donnelly but not. We already have a Katy. We have Scandinavian connections and the middle names are chosen.

Girls:
Middle name will be Lucia (pronounced with soft 'c' as per Swedish pronunciation). Shortlist is:
Hannah
Phoebe
Elisabeth (nn Libby)
Lara

Boys:
Middle name will be Tomas (Swedish spelling). Shortlist is:
Edward
Oscar
Henry
Daniel

We're particularly stuck on the boys name so appreciate any help!

Lovely lists!

I'd go for Lara and Oscar, but they're all fine.

Love Tomas. Edward Tomas is gorgeous but am v fond of Oscar too. Like Elisabeth best of the girls' - don't like Phoebe or Lara with Lucia.

They're all nice. <unhelpful>

Least favourites would be Hannah and Daniel. Most favourite from your choices are Phoebe and Oscar. I really like Tomas and Lucia as first name choices also.

Lara or Daniel

Another vote for Oscar and Libby!

Edward and Lara!

MrsBungleScare Sun 10-Nov-13 16:23:10

Lara or Henry or Oscar

Lara or Daniel

Lara or Daniel.

Lara and Edward. I have an Edward (Eddie) and an Irish surname, it goes well.

Hanna or Oskar (if you are doing scandi, might as well do scandi spellings)

Very nice names, solid and lasting.......

everlong Sun 10-Nov-13 18:11:38

Lovely.

Elisabeth and Oscar.

AtticusMcPlatypus Sun 10-Nov-13 18:17:49

Lara and Oscar. Love the middle names too.

Hannah Lucia or Daniel Tomas would be my favourites.

Hannah Lucia - lovely
Phoebe Lucia - lovely
Elisabeth (nn Libby) Lucia - too much L and S with Lucia
Lara Lucia - too similar, both L names with 2 syllables

Edward Tomas - like Edward but the d and T together are a little awkward
Oscar Tomas - not keen on Oscar
Henry Tomas - great
Daniel Tomas - great

I love Lucia - any reason it's a middle name ?
Hannah and Henry would be my choices

Although I prefer the other girls names, I think Hannah sounds best with Lucia.

I think all the boys names go well with the middle name, but my personal favourite would be Oscar Tomas smile

Aargh we still can't make our minds up on the girl list!

DC is now arriving next Tuesday by elcs and I'd love to have a name prepped!

So, we're settled on Edward Tomas for a boy, and are now undecided between Hannah Lucia or Phoebe Lucia for a girl.

So, mn jury, what's it to be - Hannah or Phoebe?!

Mrsindecision Mon 09-Dec-13 20:56:32

I prefer Phoebe. Goodluck for next Tuesday, let us know when DC arrives! grin

Bowlersarm Mon 09-Dec-13 20:57:57

Hannah

Good luck for Tuesday

SatinSandals Mon 09-Dec-13 21:11:39

Edward was my favourite too.
I vote for Hannah,

Hannah and Oscar are my favourites.

Looks like it's Edward or Hannah then!

Thanks all - will let you know which one gets used next week!
