Hi, we are expecting Dc3 and struggling to find names we both like. Our daughter is Ella and our son's name is Seth. Our shortlists for DC3 are as follows, I'd really appreciate your feedback, and any ideas for alternatives we could consider:

Arthur (family name, but we love it too!)
Sidney (ditto)
Then we get stuck...!


Many thanks x

Not keen on any of your boys names I am afraid.
But I love all your girls names. I have a 10 year old dd called Iris, so I love that, Lydia was on our list for her too, and would still consider it, I really love Lydia.
Annie is fab too, I like it as a nn for Anne, but I do not like the other Ann names (Anna, Annabel).
I could not choose between them tbh.

Love both your boys names, Annie is my favourite of your girls names

Lydia is nice. Goes well with your other children's names too, in my opinion.

Prefer Arthur to Sidney. Quite like Arthur (was on our list too).

I'd get rid of Sidney, just so that all of your children can have their 'own' initial (daft as that sounds!).
Out of your girl names, I think Ella, Seth and Iris sounds the best, although Lydia and Annie are both lovely too!

Thanks for all your feedback, everyone - really helpful....I will probably be seeking further advice on middle names, too! :0) x

I agree Ella, Seth and Iris sounds great - I love Iris, it was on my list for ds and will be for any future girls!

Out of your boys names I prefer Arthur - I think Sidney may be one of these boy names that is being used more now as a girl's name. Though Sid is quite a cool nickname.
