Crikey excuse the terrible grammar trying to keep an eye on my little ones and do this too. Who said all women are excellent multi-taskers!!

There not my type of names but the one that stands out as a no is felix - it's catfood! Lol Gabriel is popular now which I have grown to like, I think I like Christian best too and can be shorted down to Chris when at school etc.

We're planning on naming our new arrival in September Tristan Alexander so I guess those are my favourites but I also like Christian.

I like all of them except Felix and Cooper.

Gabriel - Quite like but never been quite convinced by it for a boy. I know it IS a boy's name and a girl would be Gabrielle but still, it doesn't sound very boylike to me somehow.

Felix - Love it. Would have strongly considered it if I'd had a boy.

Theo/Theodore - Like Theo but not Theodore

Sebastian - Not keen. All the ones I know become Seb or Sebby anyway which I really don't like

Christian - Quite nice.

Tristan - Interesting. Bit 'out there' but quite like

Cooper - sounds more like a car than a child to me. Sorry.

Alexander - Love it. Another one I'd definitely have considered.

Jasper - Not sure. Don't think I'm keen

Cleo - sounds like a boy to me. I know a Clea which I think is sweet.

Alba - is that a real name? Just sounds like a made up word to me. Quite pleasant sounding though

Tabitha - growing on me. used to hate it but think it's cute now.

Love Christian and Tabitha!

My favourites are Felix, Gabriel, Cleo and Alba.

Your girls names are FABULOUS smile

and Gabriel & Felix from your boys
Christian/Tristan - not keen at all
Cooper - reminds me of a Mini or Alice Cooper - what about Carter?

Gabriel and Sebastian are my favourites for a boy. Theo and Alexander are also perfectly nice names.

Felix and Tristan make me shudder, dunno why.
Christian and Jasper are wet.
Cooper is bonkers.

Dislike Alba and Tabitha. Cleo is lovely, though.
