Willow
Eden
Aubree
Maci

Boys with middle name John

Parker
Roman
Reuben

Not Parker, Aubree or Maci (are those last two even actual names?)

I really like all the others though.

Sophronia Mon 15-Jun-15 17:03:05

Willow Louise and Roman John

Yes, Aubree and Maci are from teen Mom.

Isla and Reuben are the nicest imo

MrsLeighHalfpenny Mon 15-Jun-15 17:13:50

How do you pronounce Maci? In Welsh it would be Mackie, but I have a horrible feeling OP would say Macey.
What's wrong with Aubrey? Other than that it's a boys' name not a girls' name.

I like Reuben very much. And Eden

Isla or Reuben.

Roman & Parker are nice too if a little different in style to Reuben.

Other boys suggestions:
Rocco
Wilson
Jackson
Cooper
Romeo
Carter
Mitchell
Evan
Harris
Owen
Rory
Aidan

Don't like any of the boys names. The only girls name I would tolerate is Frankie - as a nn for Francesca.

Isla, Willow, Eden are all very nice.

Aubrey (a version of Oberon/Auberon) has been a male name for centuries. If people choose to spell it differently and say it's a girl's name, then good luck to them, but there are so many lovely and less problematic female names to choose from.

Macys is the name of a famous USA department store, so naming a baby Maci would be a bit like naming a baby 'Harrods'... And the Maci spelling might lead to pronounciation problems; Maci could be read as 'Makky' or even 'Mac-i' (like the computer).

Frankie is a good short version of Frances or Francesca or Franziska, but would you consider giving your daughter one of those full versions, so that she has more choice as she grows up?

Roman and Ruben are fine, but Parker is a surname and your son might also get teased: 'Nosy Parker'.

Frankie I like as a nn, but also in favour of Frances, Francesca on bc.
Agree that Aubrey is a boy's name, but I do personally like transition names where they're fairly uncommon, so go for it, but definitely with -ey spelling.
Just a thought, Aubretia is the name of a flower (a pretty one!), which could be used as full name on bc, then you could spell nn in the way you choose and also avoid taunts for having a boy's name, because she wouldn't!
Boys - Reuben wins hands down.

Aubretia pronounced Au - BREE - sha, by the way x

ashesandfire Mon 15-Jun-15 18:02:25

Francesca Louise nn Frankie.
Or Willow Louise
Reuben John

Love the Aubretia suggestion.

My favourites from your list are Willow and Roman.

Aubretia is indeed very pretty upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f8/Aubrieta_deltoides1.JPG

Frankie Louise as a nickname for Francis or Francesca
Willow Louise

Aubree is awful, and Aubrey is a male name.
Maci equally bad.

Reuben.

Ethan or Spencer for a boy? Autumn for a girl?
