Hey there just wondered if anyone had any opions on my shortlist...I only have a week to go and we can't decide. Little one will have an older brother called George and our surname ends in 'ey'. Thank you!

Girls: Middle name would be May or Rose....
Betty -
Bella - Love but not really a twilight fan - is it very over used now?
LuLu - DH not keen on this but I have always loved it!

Boys: Middle name would be Ronald
Ted
Ralph
Sidney
Harry
Fred

Thanks x

Not sure Rose May flows that well, although it is pretty. How about Rosa instead?

I love Sidney!

Oops, I totally read the middle names wrong! Ignore me (runs and hides) blush.

I like Bella. I would love LuLu as well if short for something like Eloise or Louisa. I don't like it as a name in its own right.

I don't like Betty for some reason.

I like Ted and Harry.

Hate Sidney!

Not keen on any of the girls names, I do like Rose as a first name though.

Sidney is my favourite from your boys list.

I like Ted and Ralph from your boys names. Betty is the only one I would go for from your girls names. I strongly dislike the boring Rose or May as a middle name, unless they are family names, just don't do it.

I don't like any of your girls' names.

From your boys' list I really like Sidney and Ralph! I don't really like Ted (sounds like Teddy Bear), Fred (Flintstones) or Harry (so overused round here).

Sidney is my least favourite name ever. Love Bella and Ted.

I don't like any of your girl names (sorry).

I really like Sidney.

Betty - LOVE this name!
Bella - Like although similar to lots of popular girls names (isabella, ella, etc)
LuLu - Better for a pet than a person!

Ted - Like a lot
Ralph - memories of that book we all read as young teens... Forever?
Sidney - Love
Harry - Like although loads around
Fred - Love but dislike Freddie

They all sound a bit nicknamey. I would think about using full versions on birth certificate.

What about Louise/Louisa with Lulu as a nickname?

Another vote for Louisa May or Louisa Rose.

Lulu is a cute nickname but it doesn't really work as a full name and it would be hard to make the child to adult transition.

Hope everything goes well with the birth, OP.

I like Bella and Harry

Betty Rose & George

Ralph & George

Not keen on Lulu, sounds a bit daft. Maybe I'm clouded by the singer Lulu grin
Too many Bellas although it's very pretty.

I like Bella and Harry too!

Betty May is really sweet.

if your dh doesn;t like Lulu IMO take it out of the list

Sidney is lovely as is Ralph Both unusual without being weird type names.
