I am having a section next week and don't know the sex. I have agonised over names this pregnancy and still have no idea.
I like unusual names and most of my favourites begin with vowels (usually A). I am a teacher so lots of names have connotations for me. My DP is even more fussy!

These are the names I have liked this pregnancy to give you an idea of style.

Girls:
Ariana
Ariadne
Aria
Alba
Hermione
Persephone
Aviana
Amarys
Eliza
Annis
Artemis
Merryn
Merdith

Boys:
Arlo
Ezra
Elias

A couple of these are still in the running but most have been vetoed! Any suggestions gratefully received!

Artemis, Hermione and Ezra are my faves. Very to my taste!

Persephone - LOVE this is on our list.
Artemis - LOVE

What about,

Cressida

What names do you hate and which are still in the running?

I don't really hate any names - I don't like top 100 names having been one of 4 in my class of 30.
Names still in contention for girls are Aria and Ariadne as these are the only ones DP likes. I would happily use any of the ones I listed above. For boys, we have nothing!
Thanks for the suggestions puddles and sleeping - I like Celeste, April and Eli. DP has vetoed!

Love Meredith and Merryn but that doesn't help! Prefer Aria to Ariadne if that helps at all.

For boys, how about
Conrad
Torin
Marcus
Felix
Ashton/Ashley
