Jamie and Amy! No I really do like those best.

Sam and Amelia

RillaBlythe Tue 29-Jan-13 14:11:47

I like Sam and Jamie equally.

Maria wins by a mile.

LemonBreeland Tue 29-Jan-13 14:12:10

One of your boys names I have and one of your girls names is my DN. I wouldn't have any of them though. They are all boring.

Sam is okay

Amelia is a nice name but not Amy for nn. It is also very popular. Nicer just as Amelia or Milly.

Lifesagame Tue 29-Jan-13 14:13:31

Sam and Amelia

Allalonenow Tue 29-Jan-13 14:17:00

Samuel and Maria.
Amelia is extremely popular already, and I think you would struggle to get people outside close family to use Amy as a nn.

NellyBluth Tue 29-Jan-13 14:18:51

Samuel and Maria. Amelia is pretty but getting very popular.

Littlecherublegs Tue 29-Jan-13 14:19:10

Jamie and Amelia

whatyoulookinat Tue 29-Jan-13 14:21:29

Love Samuel & Jamie.
Like Amelia but not keen on Amy.

All perfectly nice names.

steppemum Tue 29-Jan-13 14:21:58

Amelia and Samuel

don't feel the need to shorten, they are lovely

meditrina Tue 29-Jan-13 14:22:45

Jamie and Amy

(given Amelia Pond was frequently Amy, I think the nn will work)

firawla Tue 29-Jan-13 14:23:41

samuel and maria

Sasparillo Tue 29-Jan-13 14:31:12

Samuel & Amelia (nn Millie), Maria always reminds me of west side story! They're all perfectly nice names though xx

BusyBee86 Tue 29-Jan-13 14:37:19

Samuel an Amelia, lovely names.

iseenodust Tue 29-Jan-13 14:45:05

James nn Jamie and Amelia.

MrsHBaby3 Tue 29-Jan-13 15:01:32

Lol, I didn't even notice that Jamie and Amy rhyme!
I haven't seen West Side Story (hides!), is it good?
Thankyou ladies! I know they're popular but I've come to the decision that they're popular for good reason. My son has a very unusual name and maybe I've gone the other way as I get fed up of spelling it out or explaining No it's not made up.

Mosman Tue 29-Jan-13 15:03:47

I know a lot of Sam's just saying

Sam and Amy (but I prefer Aimee)

HyvaPaiva Tue 29-Jan-13 15:21:27

James nn. Jamie and Maria

mayanna123 Tue 29-Jan-13 15:30:36

Agree that Amelia, Jamie and Sam are becoming a little overused and imo are a little dull, sorry.

I do love Maria though - classic, beautiful and underused!

SurreyWithAFringeOnTop Tue 29-Jan-13 16:35:48

Samuel and Maria

NowPlayingZone Tue 29-Jan-13 17:54:56

Samuel & Maria.

Harrysmummysarah1 Tue 29-Jan-13 18:38:44

Samuel and Amelia.
Love samuel as a name think its a lovely boys name.
Not to keen on Amelia but prefer it over Maria.
Similar names
Thomas, Daniel, Oliver, Harry?
Isabella, grace, Emily, Marion?

nooka Tue 29-Jan-13 18:54:19

I think that James (or Jamie/Jim/Jimmy) and Maria are very mainstream (certainly no questions would be asked) but slightly less common than Amelia or Sam, so that's what I would pick. One thing to think about is whether either 'go' with your other child's very unusual name. I don't think names should be too 'matchy' but a combination that is very different like say Blue and Tom might be a bit odd.

amck5700 Tue 29-Jan-13 18:57:23

Sam and Maria,

similar names:

Jacob (Jake), Jonathan (Jon), Edward (Ed), Gregor (Greg)
Lillian (Lily), Sophie, Eleanor (Ella), Marianne, Diana.

Viviennemary Tue 29-Jan-13 19:03:23

Samuel for a boy. And quite like both the girls names but Maria is a lot less common these days

Ameybee Tue 29-Jan-13 19:11:09

Jamie and Amy of course - but then biased clearly wink

mathanxiety Tue 29-Jan-13 20:20:49

I like Sam and Maria much more than Amelia or Jamie.



Samuel and Maria

Rhubarbgarden Tue 29-Jan-13 22:52:29

Samuel and Maria. Maria is lovely.

Startail Tue 29-Jan-13 23:54:22

Sam and Amy

I'd probably just call her Amiee/Amy and not bother with Amelia or she'll just become Milly.

I might use the flowery spelling, to remember an Amiee I lost touch with long ago.

Yfronts Wed 30-Jan-13 23:48:19

Sam and Amelia

dancingted Thu 31-Jan-13 07:23:24

James nn Jamie

blaclpurse1 Thu 31-Jan-13 07:29:46

Do like Sam but very popular much prefer Jamie with full name James.
Jamie and Amelia.

Teapot13 Thu 31-Jan-13 09:22:20

There is nothing to be mean about here -- they are all perfectly nice names so don't worry about that.

I like both Samuel and Jamie, although I would go for James. You never know, and it just makes more choices.

I love Amelia but it has got too popular for me. Personally, I don't really like Amy and the connection to Amelia, while not illogical, might not be clear to everyone.

Maria is such a classic you really can't go wrong. It is rare to find SUCH a classic that people aren't really using, so I think I would go with that.

Astley Thu 31-Jan-13 11:59:02

Aimee and James (not Jamie)

apachepony Thu 31-Jan-13 12:03:01

Samuel and Maria

DanniiH Thu 31-Jan-13 12:41:34

I like Sammy for a boy, considered Samson for my son. Like Amelia. x

MrsHBaby3 Thu 31-Jan-13 12:59:19

Theres a James and a Millie already in the family, which is why we thought of Jamie or Amy

bunnylang Thu 31-Jan-13 14:37:47

Why not go James rather than Jamie? I love James.

Maria wins for me.

bunnylang Thu 31-Jan-13 14:38:07

Mary is nice too

mathanxiety Thu 31-Jan-13 15:41:40

Names that are cognates of James:


mathanxiety Thu 31-Jan-13 15:41:59

And Jago (via Diego)

Mikethemonkey Thu 31-Jan-13 16:19:37

Jamie/James really love this,like both girls names.

RubyGrace17 Fri 01-Feb-13 17:46:46

I like Samuel and Amelia (but I have an Amelia of my own so I'm biased!)
