Ellen
Mary

Brendan
Joseph

I once knew a Brendan who wasn't Irish and had no Irish connection. He said it was "as culturally bizarre as naming a white, ginger kid Mohammed" and hated it, so I'd be wary if you're not Irish/in Ireland/ in a Catholic-centric community. Plus it's just not a nice name IMO.

Joseph is very nice though.

All those girls names are horrible.

I don't like Ellen at all but I love the rest.

I really wouldn't be able to pick between Brendan and Joseph - love them both. Mary is fab.

Dermot is nice, but I prefer the other two boys' names.

Very Irish and very Catholic grin

Ah.. Laughing at Mary and Joseph. Imagine! No I have a DS already and this will be my last.

Ellen and Joseph. Please don't have Mary and Joseph grin

I don't think it's twins so it will be either DS and (girl) or DS and (boy)

I can't out myself with his name but he is named after his dad.

Unless its twins grin

Due in December, imagine twin Mary and Joseph twins

-- rolls about the floor laughing --

There were twins in dd's nursery called Mary and Joseph grin birthdays were about Easter though.

I know twins called Mary and Joseph too! They are about 30 now though. We gave them a terrible time over it!
