Naming baby Wilde..

Following on from a previous thread DH and I have done some serious thinking about baby names! We don't know what we are having yet but the name can't start with the letters A or C and it has to go with the surname Wilde. What do you think of some of these and other suggestions please. The list has changed a bit since last time-

Elise Wilde
Darcy Wilde
Matilda (Mattie) Wilde
Elena Wilde

Haydn Wilde
Todd Wilde
Logan Wilde
Ethan Wilde
Patrick Wilde

Suggestions also welcome! Do your worst grin

Todd really sticks out as NOT going with any of the other names.

patrick wilde is fantastic grin

not so keen on your girl's names, darcy is my best of the bunch...elena is lovely but for some reason eleanor seems to flow better with your surname. you could always go all-out dramatic with something like scarlett grin

I think Elena is my fave girls name as I love the nn's Nell and Lenny.

Of your boys names I like Hadyn best. I think Toby fits in your list too.

I think all the girls names sound great with your surname, but in order of preference my choice would be Matilda, Elise, Darcy and Elena.

Boys I like Ethan and Haydn best. Logan and Patrick are also nice. Can't get my head around Todd. I find it very US college frat-boy-esque.

oh sad

i thought you were naming your baby Wilde... after Oscar maybe? I am slightly disappointed now grin

I like all of your girls names... if I was forced to put them in an order I think it would be:

I really dislike Haydn, but that's fairly irrational.

I like Patrick best, followed by Logan and Ethan

Patrick Wilde

Elise Wilde - don't love
Darcy Wilde - don't love
Matilda (Mattie) Wilde - think of Mattie as a boy's name
Elena Wilde - lovely

Haydn Wilde - don't like it, sounds a bit chavvy
Todd Wilde - as above
Logan Wilde - nice, but getting popular
Ethan Wilde - nice
Patrick Wilde - perfect

Can I add Juliet or Lydia to your list?

Elena Wilde
Patrick Wilde

Absolutely brilliant names. I may change my surname now grin

Slightly jealous of your surname - very strong and romantic!

Ethan and Matilda would be my favourites but your surname makes them all sound fabulous!

Todd and Darcy!

Girls names are very nice

Boys names are awful, particularly dislike Haydn.

Very nice surname.

upatdawn Tue 13-Sep-11 21:49:43

Ignore that I said Todd, my new fav is Ethan!

Elise and Patrick get my vote.

Duncan or Gavin or Adrian would go beautifully.
I don't like any of your girls names, Elena would be better as Eleanor as someone else pointed out.

FairyArmadillo Wed 14-Sep-11 09:38:29

Like Darcy, Elena, Ethan, Patrick Wilde. Not keen on Todd Wilde.

birdofthenorth Wed 14-Sep-11 09:55:24

Matilda or Todd!

Like Logan Wilde too though

dearheart Wed 14-Sep-11 10:40:32

Elena and Patrick.

Gluttondressedaslamb Wed 14-Sep-11 14:00:55

Elise Wilde sounds too much like `Ellie`s wild`. Elisa or Alyssa sounds better IMO

sjuperwolef Wed 14-Sep-11 14:02:22

ethan and darcy grin

Ebb Wed 14-Sep-11 14:40:06

I like Matilda and Patrick best.

Avinalarf Wed 14-Sep-11 14:40:56

Patrick and Matilda or Elena

Other boys names are bad.

HandsOffOurLand Wed 14-Sep-11 14:47:05

Of the boys' names, it has to be Patrick - but only because the others are so shocking (sorry). All that can be said for them is that they go together. An Ethan would probably befriend a Hayden (or Cayden or Jayden) at school, and would be a pain in the bottom. Not that I am stereotyping or anything (and FWIW, my DC's names tend to feature in MN lists of the ponciest names in the history of child-naming, so our tastes are obviously different).

Girls' names are nicer IMO. Though, again, I'd go for Eleanor rather than Elena. And I wouldn't go for Darcy as I've come across too many of them.

What do you mean by 'naughty boy name'? How can you judge a child on their name?
