DS is Gabriel and we're expecting DC2 next month smile!! We're really struggling to decide names, particularly a boy's name we love as much as Gabriel.

Which is your favourite from our two shortlists (or any other name you think would go nicely with Gabriel)...
Boys:
Isaac
Alexander
Monty
Henry

Girls:
Celeste
Imogen
Isobel
Charlotte

Alexander or Celeste, but I'm going to chuck Conrad into the mix and see if you like it!

From your selection I like Monty and celeste. I like Ambrose (Brose) and Angus (gus) with Gabriel.

Celeste (although lovely) feels a bit too themey with Gabriel to me (and might start to seem slightly ironic during the toddler years?).

So I'd go for Imogen and either Isaac or Alexander.

I love Gabriel, but can't use it. I have a Patrick, which goes well? How about Reuben?

Oooh, I really like all those.

Not sure I could pick a favourite, particularly the boys - love Alexander, Isaac and Monty. Charlotte is probably my favourite of the girls (would be Isabel but sounds too similar to Gabriel imo).

From your lists I like Alexander and Isobel.

The Gabriels I know have siblings Tom, Nathaniel, Amelia, Elizabeth.

I like the boys names in the order you've written them:
Isaac
Alexander
Monty
Henry
I also don't think monty or Henry go well with Gabriel.

Re the girls names, I like:
Isobel
Charlotte
Celeste
Imogen
In that order.
I don't think the similarity in meanings of Gabriel and Celeste is a problem - I think they go well together (as do the others).

I'm expecting next month too. I wonder if you're one of our July group using a name-change wink
