Hi there smile

I really need some inspiration...

DC1 is due soon (no idea what gender) and would love a name ready!

DH's favourite name (boy) is Oliver (I really like it too, but know loads sad)

Stuck for girls' names, but I do quite like Darcy...

Thanks in advance x

I had boys but if they had been girls they would have been Amy and Claudia.

Alyx80 Sat 13-Feb-16 20:40:15

My absolute favourites are quite unusual which I'm assuming wouldn't be your choice from the ones you've written but I also like

Reuben
Sebastian

Harriet
Matilda

Joel & Ivy

LollyLauren Sat 13-Feb-16 20:41:28

Sparklingbrook - I do love the simplicity of Amy, but I'm not sure it flows that well with our surname (Mayfield)?

Claudia is nice, but it isn't really DH's taste!

Lovely choices, though!

Darcy is lovely, one of my favourites too.

My opinion on names changes constantly (curse of being a teacher). Currently a fan on Elle and Polly for girls. Niall for a boy.

Esmeismyhero Sat 13-Feb-16 20:42:50

I chose quite classic names and a quirky name as well.

I also like

Girl: Tilly, Stormy, Patience

Boy: Rueben, Haryy, Hugh

Sparklingbrook Sat 13-Feb-16 20:43:31

I see what you mean with the surname it doesn't flow does it? sad

** Harry blush

Sparklingbrook Sat 13-Feb-16 20:44:43

I love Polly, and Betsy.

Plus Elena/Ellie.

LollyLauren Sat 13-Feb-16 20:45:48

Alyx80 - Reuben is a name I can't use, but I do like Sebastian! (Not really keen on Seb, though)

Harriet is nice; so is Matilda (but I don't want a name beginning with m)

gunting - Joel and Ivy are nice - really like Ivy!

Darcy and Oliver are lovely but very, very popular if you're concerned about that kind of thing.
My new baby is called Heidi.

I have an Oliver (12) and I love it!
Also a Lucy (4) and I love the name

If we had another, I'd have Arlo for a boy, and Noa for a girl.

AgentCooper Sat 13-Feb-16 20:47:04

My absolute favourite boys' name is Linus (big Peanuts fan), but DH reckons wee Linus would get picked on for his name sad

For girls: Alice, Lucienne, Noura

Sparklingbrook Sat 13-Feb-16 20:47:26

Awww Oyster she's beautiful, and Heidi is lovely. How new is she?

AgentCooper Sat 13-Feb-16 20:48:04

Aw, hello to your lovely wee Heidi, Oyster!

Picturesofmatchstickmen Sat 13-Feb-16 20:48:13

Madeline for a girl
Luka for a boy

ShamefulPlaceMarker Sat 13-Feb-16 20:49:53

If I had another boy & girl I'd call them Seb & Pippa.

Twistedheartache Sat 13-Feb-16 20:51:27

Lucinda, Nadia & Gabrielle for girls (ExH vetoed them all)

Seth & Ethan for boys

grumpysquash2 Sat 13-Feb-16 20:52:06

Scarlett and Anya both go nicely with Mayfield.

Noah Mayfield is cool too smile

Oyster your baby is so gorgeous, I feel all broody now!

ScarlettDarling Sat 13-Feb-16 20:57:30

Scarlett and Poppy are my favourites for a girl.

For boys I love Will(iam), jack, Noah or Gabriel.

Oysterbabe Sat 13-Feb-16 21:03:02

Heidi is 6 weeks now but she was only 1 week in that picture.

LastGirlOnTheLeft Sat 13-Feb-16 21:10:22

Seeing little Heidi I feel all broody too!! I love the newborn skinny legs they rock! Plus her blonde hair is so lovely!!

LollyLauren Sat 13-Feb-16 21:17:57

TypicallyEnglishMustard - love Darcy, it's just so pretty!

Elle is lovely, but I do prefer Ella! Polly is cute, but my mum calls me Lolly, so I think it's too similar smile

Niall is nice, but all I think is 1D sad

Esmeismyhero - Tilly is nice, but would go for Matilda smile

Stormy and Patience aren't really our style, but thank you! I think it's great to like less used names - I wish I did!

Sparklingbrook - I think it could work, but yeah... sad

Polly ^

Betsy is my MIL's dog! blush

Elena - is this like Eleanor? smile

Oysterbabe - oh my gosh! She's perfect!!! So cannot wait to meet mine...

I seem to like popular names, unfortunately! sad Heidi is lovely...

MissRabbitHasTooManyJobs - does he get Ollie? (I like it, but not as much as Oliver!)

Lucy is lovely, but my name begins with an a - is that a problem? hmm

BuntyCollocks - Arlo is okay, but not really my style, but I do love Noah for a boy! I think I'd always think of it as a boys' name, so not sure I could do Noa for a girl sad it is pretty, though!

AgentCooper - Linus is a name I have never heard of, but I don't think it's a name which would cause teasing!

Alice is nice smile

I'm not a fan of Lucienne or Noura sad

Picturesofmatchstickmen - Madeline is lovely! Love Maddie too, but it begins with m sad Luka is cool, but I prefer Luke/Lucas! Great choices, though...

ShamefulPlaceMarker - Seb ^ Pippa is cute smile

Twistedheartache - Lucinda and Nadia sound rather old-fashioned to my ears sad

Gabrielle is nice and Gabriella is lush!!!

Seth is cool, but Ethan is really nice! smile

grumpysquash2 - Scarlett is so pretty! Not sure on Anya...

Noah is one of my favourites!!!
