I've seen the name Erza on like four threads today.

Never heard it before. Sounds like a hipster healthfood or a kind of lentil. Or a Sesame Street character, Gonzo's sibling?

I'm not keen.

Elodie and Leo.

Carly and Leo.

Carly is on my shortlist too!

I like Ava and Leo, btw.

Big fan of short names. I gave DS a long one which no one can spell and the nickname for it has about four alternative spellings.

Names they can write and spell early are awesome.

I love Carly as its virtually unheard of now.
Ava is yes very popular but beautiful none the less
I can't stand Bella or Elodie

Only like Ezra from your boys names

MrsGsnow18 Fri 19-Aug-16 21:34:31

Ava or Finn are my faves from your list.
Simple but lovely.

Girls:
Carly - REALLY 80's and a bit chav
Elodie - beautiful
Ava - don't do it if you want something original
Bella - nice but reminds me of fat ladies, maybe Belle?

Boys:
Leo - the lion? What about Theo?
Ezra - what? Is this even a name? It's George Ezra's surname...also, I think anything ending with an a is female.
Finn - not bad, goes with Rafe

Sorry if I'm blunt, blame my mate Merlot! wink

Ava and Finn. Love Rafe btw!

HettyB Fri 19-Aug-16 22:06:57

Ava. Leo or Ezra. To me the others don't gel as well with your other DCs' names, if that makes any sense!

Bells and finn

MiniAlphaBravo Fri 19-Aug-16 22:09:29

NOT Carly! Awful sorry imho.

Agree with Joffrey about Ezra. Never heard of it or met anyone called it. Don't be that trend!

However, Elodie is lovely and I also like Leo a lot.

Ricecreespees Fri 19-Aug-16 22:13:35

Thanks for everyone's replies, I really appreciate itsmile
I feel like Carly and Ezra are very "marmite" names, some people love them and some hate them!

bluechameleon Fri 19-Aug-16 22:17:31

I like Elodie but would avoid having two of the same sex with the same initial. Available is lovely but very "now" if that would bother you. I like Bella, especially as a shortening of Arabella. Carl doesn't fit well with your first two for me.
out of the boys I like Leo best. Ezra fits well with Rafe and I don't think a repeated initial matters so much if they are different sexes. Finn I'm not so keen on.

bluechameleon Fri 19-Aug-16 22:18:45

Ava seems to have autocorrected to Available in my previous post.

JinkxMonsoon Fri 19-Aug-16 22:21:14

Carly is far too 80s and doesn't match your other children's names. They're classy, and Carly is not.

And before any Carly's complain, I have a 70s/80s name that begins with a K and isn't classy either grin

Ricecreespees Fri 19-Aug-16 22:38:34

Yes a friend of mine said Carly wasn't classy and didn't go well with Emilia and Rafe, what do people think? It seems that most people think it's horrible...

Sophronia Fri 19-Aug-16 22:44:04

Ava and Leo

HettyB Fri 19-Aug-16 22:45:30

I think Carly sounds dreadful with your other DCs' names - sorry!

To me, Emilia and Rafe are 'naice', middle class names, and Carly is more...90s council estate.

Sorry to any Carlys out there!

Carla is much better, if you're set on it? Or, even better with your other DCs' names is Clara.
