Want a name that goes with a big brother called Leo smile

Have no idea ? DH is no help really keeps suggesting names but nothing is jumping out at me.

One name that DH said and im on the fence about is Gracie??
btw i wont be offended if you hate it

Not mad keen on Gracie, Grace is much better.

Noah, Luke, Gabriel, Eli or Lily, Chloe, Rowan, Layla smile

Hai1988 Tue 06-Nov-12 19:48:53

Liking noah, and we have already talked about lily like the name but didnt no if we should use a L name again.

Leo was on my boys list, I have 3 girls, so have always thought about a name to go with Leo. What about Anna? We also thought of Dominic.

MaryAstor Tue 06-Nov-12 21:01:21

I'd say no to Leo and Lily. They are not pet rabbits.

I prefer 'Leo and Grace' to 'Leo and Gracie'.

Noah is nice but there's too much assonance in 'Leo and Noah' imo.

My suggestions:

Leo and Hannah

Leo and Charlie

Gracie sounds too much like Greasy. Trust me - my middle name is Grace! grin

Leo and Matilda sounds cool!

baskingseals Tue 06-Nov-12 21:38:43

love Leo - very cool.

what about

Arlo

Jude

Jesse

Max

Oscar

Rufus

and for girls

Dora

Iris

Clara

Edie

Marianne

Juliet

are any of these any good?

Samvet Tue 06-Nov-12 22:46:05

Leo and Alex

telsa Tue 06-Nov-12 22:48:12

Leo and Cleo - no sorry! Yvette, Florence, Toby, James, Jasmine, Claire, Marcus.

Alisvolatpropiis Wed 07-Nov-12 01:49:15

Leo and Grace sounds great. Maybe Gracie as a nickname?

Hai1988 Wed 07-Nov-12 10:05:06

Thanks all for you advice I have got noah and oscar in my boys shortlist but none for girls !! God im so fussy

Gwennan Wed 07-Nov-12 10:38:53

Love Leo. Like Grace: Leo & Grace sounds lovely.

How about Leo & Henry, Leo & Miles, Leo & Jasper, Leo & Ethan, Leo & Rory, Leo & Flynn, Leo & Rufus, Leo & Julian, Leo & Zachary, Leo & Sebastian, Leo & Peter, Leo & Jack, Leo & Nathan, Leo & Edward?

Or Leo & Pearl, Leo & Matilda, Leo & Emmeline, Leo & Willa, Leo & Helena, Leo & Ruby, Leo & Rose, Leo & Alice, Leo & Eliza, Leo & Maisie, Leo & Zara, Leo & Sadie, Leo & Isadora, Leo & Georgia?

Hai1988 Wed 07-Nov-12 10:56:18

Gwennan Wed 07-Nov-12 11:34:52

Maybe he might like Hebe or Fiona instead?

seeker Wed 07-Nov-12 11:36:17

Leo and Grace.

Grace is lovely. <biased emoticon>

vamosbebe Wed 07-Nov-12 11:40:15

Friends of ours have a Leo (Leonardo) with an older sisiter called Alida, which is pretty.

How about:
Rosa
Carla
Renée
Libby

Oscar (my DS, slightly biased!!)
Eliseo
Ruben

<feel free to laugh your arse off at my taste>

baskingseals Wed 07-Nov-12 19:01:35

vamos - fwiw i think you've got great taste - Rosa is one of my absolute favourite girls' names.

um more girls names for you Hai

Hermione

Imogen

Felicity

Rosanna

Athene

Margot

Elise

Esme

Phoebe is lovely. can't you win him round? grin

Viviennemary Wed 07-Nov-12 21:07:19

Grace is very nice but not Gracie. I don't know why people worry so much about 'matching names'. But not Leo and Cleo obviously. grin I like Pearl and Iris.

Hai1988 Thu 08-Nov-12 08:05:23

Thanks all.for ur suggestions. Its so hard to even create a short list of names that we both like.

So far we have boys:
Oscar
Noah

And girls:
Lily

Any more suggestions ladies

seeker Thu 08-Nov-12 09:26:32

My dd has a special hard stare for people who call her Gracie without permission- they rarely do it twice. I think her reception teacher was quite shaken.......

Alisvolatpropiis Thu 08-Nov-12 23:37:51

Hai I prefer Noah to Oscar by a mile. There's nothing wrong with Oscar (Oscar Wilde is an excellent namesake) I just prefer Noah.

Lily is lovely! Especially with the one L in the middle. I hate it spelt with two. No idea why.

I don't think you need a really long list. In some ways that could make the actual naming harder. If you've got 20 names and you're sitting there trying to work out which one suits your baby best it could drive you mad!

amazingmumof6 Thu 08-Nov-12 23:51:37

We have a Noah, great name, go for it!! Our daughter's second name is Grace, can't fault that either!

Sorry, don't like Lily. Leo & Lily together sounds like a clothing range..

Sophia? Miriam? Eve? Zita?

amazingmumof6 Thu 08-Nov-12 23:56:48

Leo & Rosie? Leo & Mia? Leo & Yasmin?

Popumpkin Thu 08-Nov-12 23:57:13

If you like Lily, how about other flower names like Poppy, Ivy or Daisy?

The only little Leo I know has a sister called Phoebe grin.

amazingmumof6 Fri 09-Nov-12 00:03:05

And borrowing the words of the good doctor in Friends (when Rachel is pregnant) " I know it's not my place to say, but whatever you do, please don't call him Pheobo!"

Also "Is it just me or Veto started to sound really good?"
Oh, I miss Friends...

One more: Leo & Emma?

Jojoba1986 Fri 09-Nov-12 00:05:06

I like Leo & Jacob, or Jessica... I like J names! smile

amazingmumof6 Fri 09-Nov-12 00:05:22

It's like a competition to guess the name of the teddy at the school fair - I so want to know who wins! grin

Hai1988 Mon 12-Nov-12 08:30:39

He he amazingmum i am a huge friends fan too smile

Wanted chandler for a boy but that got vetoed pritty quick sad

janey68 Mon 12-Nov-12 09:27:27

Grace is lovely, and although it seems to be every other girls middle name, its rarely used as a first name. Gracie is awful. For a boy I like Jude, Max and George and think they go well. Chandler will sound like a surname

Max

Ella

justhayley Sat 17-Nov-12 23:36:59

I like Leo and Ollie (Oliver on birth cert) or Leo and Alex (Alexander)

ChippingInLovesAutumn Sat 17-Nov-12 23:39:11

Leo & Lily - not a great combo IMHO - as someone else said, it sounds like a pair of rabbits.

DessieLou Sun 18-Nov-12 16:20:29

I'm pg with a girl and due in less than 2 weeks. She is destined to be nameless and is currently referred to as 'The Kid'...poor thing. Here is a list of all the names that one or the other of us likes, hope it helps!
Natalie
Jasmine
Zara
Leila
Francesca
Madeleine
Lucy
Annabelle
Iris
Ava

Would have been so much easier if The Kid was a boy!
Emmett
Nicholas
Everett
Ephraim
Rupert
Jasper
Fraser
Edwin/Edward (Ted)

And as you love Phoebe, how about the male version...I have a great great relative or other called Pheobus! OH would never go for it but I kinda love it!

Good luck!

babyblabber Sun 18-Nov-12 21:55:40
