Hey, a little about me, I'm 21 years old, engaged to my lovely 30 year old fiancé, we have our first baby due on 18th October 2011.
We decided to keep the sex of the baby a surprise, being my first child smile

So, the names are....

Boys
Zack Thomas Halliwell
Alfie James Halliwell
Ethan Jack Halliwell

Girls
Summer Lily-Rose Halliwell
Maisy May Halliwell
Ava Rose Halliwell

Please let me know what you think smile

Thank you xxxxx

P.s Also looking to meet new mums in the Wigan area... xxxx

All the girls names are pretty dire tbh.

morethanyoubargainfor Tue 16-Aug-11 17:31:49

personally i don't think i would pick any of them TBH but if i had to i would go for Ava rose and Ethan.

Congratulations on the baby, I'd choose Ethan or Ava from your list. I would avoid the hyphenated middle name Lily-Rose and just have two middle names if you wanted to go with that one. Maisy May sounds a little bit like a nursery rhyme, a bit cute for an adult.

Good luck on meeting new mums, have you seen that there is a local section on MN (I'm not in Wigan).

Please not another Alfie.

Welcome OP and congratulations in the baby!!

Unfortunately some posters on here aren't quite as welcoming, as you can see hmm

mohara Tue 16-Aug-11 17:42:08

Sorry-congratulations ON the baby......blush

Hi - congratulations on the baby!

I like both Zack (though prefer Zachary shortened to Zac) and Ethan, but really do not like Alfie, sorry.

Summer is pretty, don't like Maisy/Maisie, but think Ava is the best of the three by quite a long way.

Ethan and Ava, I'm not a fan of middle names.

Congratulations smile

minipie Tue 16-Aug-11 18:16:26

I like Zack or Zac and Ethan. Alfie is sweet but so popular at the moment.

Summer Lily-Rose and Maisy May are waaay too cutesy. Ava Rose is the best. I like Summer as a first name but think you need a non-nature name with it.

tammytoby Tue 16-Aug-11 18:20:52

Congratulations smile.

Personally I really dislike your name choices (especially Alfie and Zack as well as Maisy and Ava) but we thankfully have different tastes and you might not like my choices either. But that's ok and makes the world much more interesting smile.

Congratulations nikki on your baby, very exciting.

I like all your boys names..for the girls not really keen on Summer or Maisy (nothing wrong with them, just not my taste) Ava is very pretty.

Sorry going to do my 'Mum' bit here..blush
This might not be an issues for you..but you have given away quite a lot of personal info on this thread...name, location and baby surname etc etc...just be careful you don't want to be could 'outed' on future post....hmm Just thought I'd mention that.

Good luck will picking a name...it's tough!! grin

p.s don't listen to the haters xxx

MsChanandlerBong Tue 16-Aug-11 18:34:03

On your boys names I like Zack the best - but I too would put Zachary on the birth certificate and then shorten it to Zac/Zack. (Zachary was our first choice boys name but we are expecting a girl!)

With the girls names, I quite like Maisy May but I think I might be in the minority as most people don't seem to like alliteration. And I think Summer sounds nice with Rose (ie without the Lily, as with a hyphenated middle name it becomes a bit fussy).

Hope this helps smile

mayanna123 Tue 16-Aug-11 18:37:50

Congratulations of your pregnancy. I don't like any of your boys names, especially Zack (sounds harsh and unfinished to me). Of your girls suggestions I quite like Summer, but find Maisy too cutesy and Ava a little overused.

mayanna123 Tue 16-Aug-11 18:38:35

But as others have said, you will never find a name that everyone loves - and it would indeed be dull if we all chose the same names smile.

KikiRC Tue 16-Aug-11 18:45:44

Ethan and Ava. I do know a lot of little girls called Ava, though. I think Summer is quite a nice name, but it seems to pop up loads in soaps which has always put me off a bit.

mathanxiety Tue 16-Aug-11 18:50:22

Zachary or Isaac, and Ava.

I think Zack is a nickname.

Louplet Tue 16-Aug-11 18:50:39

Congratulations! I like Ethan Jack and Ava Rose.

mich54321 Tue 16-Aug-11 18:51:46

Hi - Congratulations. From your list I would go for Ava Rose (although personally I would have a different mn) for a girl. Not overly keen on the boys names but would go for Zachary nn Zack out of the three. Prefer Thomas and James tbh. Also echo scarlettlips comments about giving away too much information.

thisisyesterday Tue 16-Aug-11 18:55:41

i would go with
Zack Thomas

or

Maisy May

ragged Tue 16-Aug-11 18:55:52

Alfie is extremely popular. Most the rest of your choices are much more unique. I am not a fan of hypenated names, so vote against Lily-Rose (both fine on their own). All rest are ok are better imho.

ragged Tue 16-Aug-11 18:56:16

or better...
can you tell who had some wine tonite? wink

EmmaRoyd Tue 16-Aug-11 18:58:58

Ethan James? And Ava Rose.

wigglesrock Tue 16-Aug-11 19:00:16

I like Zac, I don't like Alfie at all, what about using one of your middle names as a first name for a boy. I'm not a fan of any of the girl middle names but Summer is my guilty name pleasure grin

blowthewindsoutherly Tue 16-Aug-11 19:01:46

Another vote for Ethan and Ava. I really like Ethan actually, don't think I've ever met one.
