The suggestions are to go with (already we have) The dds first and subsequent names.

Dora
Eliza
Henrietta
Mary
Iris
Anne

Boys on the list are Henry and Arthur but no ideas for girls.

I have a theory that one day dd's names will be in vogue and people will like them smile

Feel free to say they are hideous, I care not. (skin like a rhino) but I will hunt you down etc... smile

Violet? Stella? Primrose? Emmeline?

MrsPScholfield Thu 05-Jun-08 13:07:54

Best friend's dd is florence.(alot of names get discounted this way!) I already have a Hattie. I wasn't expecting such a list already. Looks like codgerly may be easier than I thought.

Evelyn is rather pretty.

Is Primrose a bit naff? Could be Rosie?

dd2 was going to be a Mary but was an Alice when born, no idea why as she looked like an old man initially...

I love Iris on your list

maude

MrsPScholfield Thu 05-Jun-08 13:23:42

Maude is wonderful is it short for anything?

I like Ethel but my husband will not hear of it. I think it suits a little one and an older woman, but is a bit out there. I am finding naming the last dc very difficult.
