I'm due at the end of November, don't know whether it's a boy or a girl.
What do you think of these or any other suggestions? I ran into some trouble with surname compatibility (the baby is going to have two non-hyphenated surnames, beginning U[2 syllables] S[two syllables]
I had not thought much about name meanings, but I have now looked up Thea and I see what you mean, Isthreetoomany.
Have just found out that if you type a name into Wikipedia it tells you the meaning and a list of famous people with that name. Ace. Have ruled out Jared on this basis, as it almost exclusively used in America, and there were two Jareds with my surname (or at least a homonym of) who were not very inspiring people . Leo and Theo are very international.
I like Rowena, my only worry is that she would be called 'Weenie', as was a girl from school called Edwina... not in a derogatory way, she was very popular . Also, it is quite an Anglo-Saxon name, as is my surname and goes with the whole 'myname DHname' combo.
On further reflection, Amy is a bit ordinary. Love Sylvie more than Thea (I think!). Also having a Thea would rule out subsequently having a Theo.... hmmmm!
Well I love Theo!! My youngest is Theodore. We call him Theodore if he is naughty, Theo most of the time. His eldest sister calls him Teddy, very cute. Also gets called Thebes? Thebe? and "Oi you with blonde curls"
