I have a great list for girls!

Matilda
Meredith
Margot
Madeleine
Beatrix
Imogen

But nothing for boys! We already gave 2 boys (not revealing names as don't want to out myself) so it feels like everything is either used, already vetoed or is a discussed but rejected name from when we were having ds1 and ds2.

Any suggestions based on my girl's list??

Lovely girls' names list.

How about
Quentin
Reuben
Nicholas
Caspar

I like a number of these but my dh wouldn't agree to them. I love Bruno but it was a serious contender for ds2 and therefore feels like a bit of a reject now. Our current list is:

Sebastian
Gabriel
Hugo

But they're the same ones we had last time and I'd really like to find something new. We like Kit, but I'm not prepared to use Christopher and not sure that it stands up well enough as a name in it's own right.

Was going to include Gabriel on my list, but forgot - odd, as it's my all-time favourite boys' name. Absolutely adore it! Not overly keen on Hugo or Sebastian, but do love Kit. Think it works fine as a full name - I've met a few in RL. Quite like Bruno too (although I can't decide if it's cute and 'bear-like' or tough and brutish!)

A few more ideas:

Raphael (similar to Gabriel)
Tristan
Cassius
Ezra
Theo
Seth
Angus
Edmund
Corin
Arlo
Orson
Bram

You have some lovely girls' choices by the way - especially love Meredith and Matilda.

Rex is fab, but I don't think I could persuade dh and it's also got a similar sound to one of my ds's names. Love Orson! I think it means bear, doesn't it? Might run it past dh!

Yes, Orson = bear. I used to teach a very cool one!

Sorry, had only read the OP, hasn't seen that you were already considering Sebastian.

Rowan?
