All awful. Sorry

Bowlersarm Sat 12-Apr-14 12:47:16

Ellen and Joseph are both great.

Just be wary of Joseph if you don't like Joe.

I don't like Brendan or Mary.

They are all very dated IMO sorry. Ellen and Joseph are the best though.

Ellen and Joseph

Ellen and Joseph. I like Ellen, and I like joe. Not fussed on Mary tbh

ClareBell08 Sat 12-Apr-14 16:05:41

Ellen and Joseph. Joseph has long been a fave of mine. I personally pref Ella or Elena but Ellen is lovely also

FixItUpChappie Sat 12-Apr-14 16:19:51

Joseph is classic and the best of the bunch IMO.

I just can't get excited enough to even choose between Ellen and Mary - sorry

LoriGrimes Sat 12-Apr-14 16:33:30

Mary and Joseph

Joseph is nice but not keen on the girls names.

MadameJosephine Sat 12-Apr-14 16:41:39

Mary and Joseph are both lovely names (maybe not for siblings through!)

I think Ellen is a bit meh and I don't like Brendan at all, sorry

Mrswellyboot Sat 12-Apr-14 17:02:09

It's so hard to pick

Thank You all.

Dh is very traditional and likes family names. I may go back to th drawing board.

HolidayCriminal Sat 12-Apr-14 17:11:33

Mary is my fave. All fine by me, Brendan would be better spelled Brandon I suspect.

Megrim Sat 12-Apr-14 17:43:17

If you like Ellen, have you also considered Eleanor or Eilidh?

I like Joseph, DS1 has it as his middle name. You don't see it very often.

Mrswellyboot Sat 12-Apr-14 18:56:02

We have had a chat. Considering Dermot

Wishfulmakeupping Sat 12-Apr-14 18:59:38

Mary is ok others not to my taste

Littleturkish Sat 12-Apr-14 18:59:41

Dermot or Diamurd is lovely.

Littleturkish Sat 12-Apr-14 18:59:58

Would you consider Maria?

ChickenMe Sat 12-Apr-14 19:06:47

Sorry I only like Joseph. Ellen is too heavy. So is Mary. They sound like washer women.

NadiaWadia Sat 12-Apr-14 19:51:23

Mary and Joseph. You couldn't really have siblings called this, though, for obvious reasons!

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 12-Apr-14 20:20:21

Joseph.

Though as Nadia said, Joseph can never the brother of Mary.

AuntieStella Sat 12-Apr-14 20:27:48

I like all of them!

Agree that Joseph and Mary are not great for a sibling set, so would plump for Ellen and Joseph.

chesterberry Sat 12-Apr-14 20:31:56

I like Joseph. Not keen on any of the others.

Lucked Sat 12-Apr-14 20:34:20

Ellen and Joseph.

Have you considered Ellle?

HeyBungalowBill Sat 12-Apr-14 20:34:30

Ellen and Joseph smile

I once knew a Brendan who wasn't Irish and had no Irish connection. He said it was "as culturally bizarre as naming a white, ginger kid Mohammed" and hated it, so I'd be wary if you're not Irish/in Ireland/ in a Catholic-centric community. Plus it's just not a nice name IMO.

Joseph is very nice though.

All those girls names are horrible.

mathanxiety Sun 13-Apr-14 06:11:27

I don't like Ellen at all but I love the rest.

I really wouldn't be able to pick between Brendan and Joseph - love them both. Mary is fab.

Dermot is nice, but I prefer the other two boys' names.

Mrswellyboot Sun 13-Apr-14 09:17:48

Very Irish and very Catholic grin

Ah.. Laughing at Mary and Joseph. Imagine! No I have a DS already and this will be my last.

crispyporkbelly Sun 13-Apr-14 09:23:03

I like Nolan and Ella smile

Hassled Sun 13-Apr-14 09:25:53

Ellen and Joseph. Please don't have Mary and Joseph grin

Mrswellyboot Sun 13-Apr-14 09:33:26

I don't think it's twins so it will be either DS and (girl) or DS and (boy)

I can't out myself with his name but he is named after his dad.

Mrswellyboot Sun 13-Apr-14 09:34:46

Unless its twins grin

Due in December, imagine twin Mary and Joseph twins

-- rolls about the floor laughing --

There were twins in dd's nursery called Mary and Joseph grin birthdays were about Easter though.

I know twins called Mary and Joseph too! They are about 30 now though. We gave them a terrible time over it!
