abraham
alfred not alfie if neceesry nn freddie but would probably end up as alfie

genevieve dh thinks too poncey i like
giselle
gerda
greta
gretchen
gwendoline /gwendolyn

Boys - Not that keen on any of the boys, but if I had to choose it would be Abraham, shortened to Abe.

Archibald?
Aristotle?

Girls - please don't call your daughter Gertrude.

Love Genevieve and Giselle.

Is gretchen not a character from Warhammer - what about Gretel?

Gussie makes me think of gusset.

What about Gwyn? Glynda? Gillian?

Hedwig3 Thu 17-Feb-11 16:00:14

I like Abraham and Ambrose or...

Austin?

I like Gerda (if pronounced Gare-da rather than Gurda) and Greta or...

Gail?

BelligerentGhoul Thu 17-Feb-11 18:44:42

The only one I really like on your lists so far is Gwendolyn.

Asher
Andrew
Adam

mummypontipine Thu 17-Feb-11 21:35:50

the problem with girls g names seems that most are very harsh or old ladyish (if not plain ugly )eg gladys or gertrude or very popular either now or in my generation eg gemma ,grace and gillian and very little in between

a names for boys not nearly as much of a problem .atticus is lovely but i'm not brave enough also ashton , asher and ardal might work (we have an irish heritage )

SameOldJollster Thu 17-Feb-11 21:43:29

how funny
my dad was an A - Arthur
my mum a G - Genevieve

I have siblings Gregory, Geraldine and Georgina... I was nearly Giselle or Gemma... hmmgrin

my faves would be Adam for a boy, and probably Genevieve for a girl.

mummypontipine Thu 17-Feb-11 21:50:08

i love genevieve and am also strangely drawn to geraldine (although the vicar of dibley springs to mind)

MarioandLuigi Thu 17-Feb-11 21:56:34

Grace
Georgia
Gabrielle
Gabriella

timetosmile Thu 17-Feb-11 21:59:30

No idea what would be in the top 50...
but here goes
A - Adam, Aiden (the coolest celtic saint) Asher
G - Grace, erm....it IS tricky!

mummypontipine Thu 17-Feb-11 21:59:53

can't use gabriella as we have a dn gabriel and it would cause confusion
arthur ,adam and grace lovely but know to many

mummypontipine Thu 17-Feb-11 22:00:55

love aidan but would merge with all the caydens ,haydens etc

camerondiazepam Thu 17-Feb-11 22:04:43

Ginevra would get my vote.
Or if you'll have Gussie for Augusta how about Ginny for Virginia?
No help on the boys' names I'm afraid, v relieved I have 2 girls!
