Ok so I like simple/shorter names, nothing too frilly, want something cool/surfey/ slightly bohemian but not too try hard....her brother's name is Finn if that gives an idea of our taste.

Thanks so much in advance this is driving us both nuts!

A friend called her new baby Estee - I think it's quite a sweet nickname for Esther and sounds a bit bohemian to me.

legalalien Wed 03-Apr-13 19:30:15

Oh for goodness sake OP make your mind up, there's going to be a lot of important decisions you need to make coming up don't fall at this hurdle. You must have some idea she's your baby! You decide the name!

You don't have to name her, you just have to register her. If you're truly undecided register her as 'Baby' Surname and that way you have until she's 12 months old to alter the birth certificate. After that I think you have to do it by deed poll.

Thank you all so much for your suggestions, thats really good of you . As for the bitchy comments, words fail me (why em, bother-really?)

I guess my problems are that nothing has just "clicked" yet and to be honest I think I prefer boys names.

From your suggestions, I like Scout (dp doesnt believe this is even a name), Mia is nice, maybe a bit girly though....boyish names or girls?

Yes I would agree with sparkle - choosing a name in one night of anxious fretting while looking after a newborn and your DS is not an ideal situation. Give yourselves a bit more time. Glad you like Scout though! And it's definitely a name!

NomNomDePlum Wed 03-Apr-13 21:23:39

you aren't going to find the one, there is no one. pick a name which doesn't not suit her - i have two dds, one has a longer, more serious name, one has a diminutive (shortening of birth cert name), the first fitted immediately, the second took a couple of weeks. you can probably tell which kind of name she would suit, pick one you both like of those and she will grow into it.

I'm with you, seeker. Truly we are in the end times. <shakes head>

Yeah, the problem with "cool, surfer, Bohemian" names is what if you turn out to be none of those things. My name has been mentioned on this thread and it doesn't suit me at all.

MortifiedAdams Thu 04-Apr-13 10:42:41

DH wants Finn if we have a boy. We have a girl called Meg (if we happen to jave the same taste!)

Thank you all so much for your suggestions. I love Scout and am going to talk dp into it.

Thanks again for all your input!

Finn and Tamsin
Finn and Imogen
Finn and Alex(andra)
Finn and Thea
Finn and Nina

Finn and Joelle

None of these are too frilly/ girly/ popular, and I think they're all quite cool, and go with your DS's name.

Do let us all know what you choose!

Wishfulmakeupping Thu 04-Apr-13 13:52:19

Yey scout such a cool name always loved it since I first read to kill...

MortifiedAdams Thu 04-Apr-13 13:52:36

Sydney usually spelt Sidonie for a girl or just "Cyd" is really nice.
Bay is also nice and kind of unisex.
