Ellen
Mary

Brendan
Joseph

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

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

Unless its twins grin

Due in December, imagine twin Mary and Joseph twins

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.

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

I like Nolan and Ella smile

Mrswellyboot Sun 13-Apr-14 09:17:48

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.

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.

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.

Ellen and Joseph smile

Ellen and Joseph.

Have you considered Ellle?

chesterberry Sat 12-Apr-14 20:31:56

I like Joseph. Not keen on any of the others.

AuntieStella Sat 12-Apr-14 20:27:48

I like all of them!

Agree that Joseph and Mary are not great for a sibling set, so would plump for Ellen and Joseph.

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 12-Apr-14 20:20:21

Joseph.

Though as Nadia said, Joseph can never the brother of Mary.

NadiaWadia Sat 12-Apr-14 19:51:23

Mary and Joseph. You couldn't really have siblings called this, though, for obvious reasons!

ChickenMe Sat 12-Apr-14 19:06:47

Sorry I only like Joseph. Ellen is too heavy. So is Mary. They sound like washer women.

Littleturkish Sat 12-Apr-14 18:59:58

Would you consider Maria?

Littleturkish Sat 12-Apr-14 18:59:41

Dermot or Diamurd is lovely.

Wishfulmakeupping Sat 12-Apr-14 18:59:38

Mary is ok others not to my taste

Mrswellyboot Sat 12-Apr-14 18:56:02

We have had a chat. Considering Dermot

Megrim Sat 12-Apr-14 17:43:17

If you like Ellen, have you also considered Eleanor or Eilidh?

I like Joseph, DS1 has it as his middle name. You don't see it very often.

HolidayCriminal Sat 12-Apr-14 17:11:33

Mary is my fave. All fine by me, Brendan would be better spelled Brandon I suspect.

Mrswellyboot Sat 12-Apr-14 17:02:09

It's so hard to pick

Thank You all.

Dh is very traditional and likes family names. I may go back to th drawing board.

MadameJosephine Sat 12-Apr-14 16:41:39

Mary and Joseph are both lovely names (maybe not for siblings through!)

I think Ellen is a bit meh and I don't like Brendan at all, sorry

Joseph is nice but not keen on the girls names.
