39 weeks today and still not sure on names. I finally have a shortlist but still nothing that jumps out at me as loving it. Hoping once baby arrives we will just know.

Any thoughts or suggestions on;

Alice
Annabelle
Phoebe
Isla

Elliot
Caleb
Noah
Milo
Miles

Middle name for girl will be Dorothy and boy Benjamin.

I like Alice and Annabelle from your list and Dorothy is a lovely mn.

Suggestions: Martha, Lucy, Isabella, Elsie, Esme, Jemima, Rebecca, Florence.

I like Noah and Caleb from your boys and considered these for my ds. Other names on my list were: Jude, Jonah, Theo, Leo, Joshua, Reuben, Ezra, Toby.

I don't Teddy and Evie is very popular round here.

I really like Isla but am worried it's too popular.

You know, you have lots of time still - DS didn't graduate from being 'the baby' until we were actually walking to register him. And he was more than eight weeks old at that point because even though we made the appointment on time, they had an incredible backlog.

I really want him/her named when we announce him/her.

It's just such a difficult decision. I thought I was set on Alice and Elliot but am swaying towards Annabelle now.

mycatstares Tue 18-Oct-16 12:05:01

I love Alice and pheobe.

Love Milo.

WindInThePussyWillows Tue 18-Oct-16 12:06:16

One of my twins is Noah and I love it sooooo much.
Love phoebe, know a lot of little Islas (2 babies on my ward when I had DTwins)

babyblabber Tue 18-Oct-16 12:25:37

Love Alice and Phoebe. Annabel nice (I prefer that spelling). Isla is ok.

Of the boys' I love Noah and Milo

Don't hate any of your names though my least favourite is Elliot, I can't understand why so many people suddenly love this name. Your girls names are beautiful.

PipersPiping Tue 18-Oct-16 13:01:44

I see on here that people always say that Isla is popular, i think it must depend on where you live as I've not met or heard of another Isla around here (co durham).

Coey2016 Tue 18-Oct-16 13:03:42

My favourites from your list are Phoebe and Milo. The only one I'm not so keen on is Elliot.

cosmicglittergirl Tue 18-Oct-16 13:04:41

I've never met an Isla (london), but I like Phoebe best from your girls list. Although they are all nice. I've met four baby Eliots recently. Milo is a great name.

Foxtato Tue 18-Oct-16 13:56:31

I like Alice and Caleb, don't like the others

averythinline Tue 18-Oct-16 14:01:23

Also really like Alice and Caleb and Elliott...loads of Noah's here and know a couple of Milos...lots of Isla too, not keen on Annabel either creepy doll or dodgy 80s club (I am old!)

NorahBhone Tue 18-Oct-16 14:05:05

Phoebe and Elliot are my favourites.

I think Lydia, Eliza, Thomas and Lucas are in a similar vibe if you are still looking for suggestions

Pipilangstrumpf Tue 18-Oct-16 14:11:11

Alice and Dorothy are both lovely and not too trendy. Annabel (much prefer this spelling) has become quite popular along with Isabel and they may sound dated as fall out of fashion.

For a boy I like Elliot or how about Quentin or Dominic?

Sophronia Tue 18-Oct-16 15:50:03

I like Alice Dorothy and Miles Benjamin

TenThousandSpoons Tue 18-Oct-16 15:54:43

I like all your names! Favourite girl would be Alice. Favourite boy would be Noah but also think that's most popular (for a reason). Prefer Milo to Miles.
