After much debate, me and hubby think we have come up with our final choices.
Our other children are Madeleine, Amelie and Dominic and our angel baby is Oliver.

For a girl we have
Annabelle Tabitha and
Sienna Maria.

For a boy we have
Zachary Oliver and
Elijah Oliver.

Which would you choose? Many thanks

Annabelle for a girl. Not too sure about a boy. On balance Zachary.

Annabelle Tabitha
Zachary Oliver

Annabelle Tabitha is really nice, I think the spelling of Annabelle is too frilly though and like Annabel a lot more.

For a boy I prefer Zachary Oliver.

I love Tabithasmile Not a fan of Annabelle I'm afraid.

Elijah Oliver is lovelysmile

I really like Elijah Oliver.

If I had to choose the girls name from what's listed I would say Sienna Maria. If I was allowed to mix them up I would have Maria Annabel smile.

I like Sienna and Elijah

Annabelle and Elijah (DS1 is Elijah though, so am biased).

I like Annabelle and Zachary. Although I think if I was Annabelle I'd be frustrated at constantly having to spell out whether it was Anabel/Annabel/Annabell/Annabelle. Tabitha is fab!

Annabelle Tabitha - love Annabelle, dislike Tabitha
Sienna Maria - both lovely names, although it's quite a sing-songy combination

From the two options I'd go for Sienna Maria. I prefer Annabelle to Sienna but really don't like Tabitha. Even nicer IMHO would be Annabelle Sienna or Annabelle Maria smile

I like both your boys' choices, and Oliver as middle name. I would pick Elijah as it's just a little bit more unusual.

Rhubarbgarden Wed 14-Sep-11 07:39:56

I'd go with Tabitha Maria. I don't like Zachary or Elijah, sorry.

CurwySwide Wed 14-Sep-11 09:02:47

I think Elijah Oliver is lovely.

I don't really like your two girls' first names, sorry, but would probably go with Sienna out of the two. I much prefer Tabitha as a first name, and I would put it with Maria as a second name.

Bizarrely, our top choices for DS were Annabelle (this spelling) and Zachary! So obviously I think they're both gorgeous names, but I actually think that Sienna and Elijah sound better with your other children's names.

Can I ask roughly what area of the country you're in? I only ask because I was feeding DS in the Mothercare feeding room recently, and a man came in with his children, Amelie and Dominic. I'm sure mentioned 'Madeleine' being in another shop with mummy, too. I remembered it because I thought what lovely names they were!

Sienna and Elijah would be my choice.

FairyArmadillo Wed 14-Sep-11 09:40:08

Love Elijah Oliver. Prefer Annabelle to Sienna.

ragged Wed 14-Sep-11 09:44:01

Sienna Maria, I don't like that spelling of Annabel, and it's just too twee a name, anyway. Your other children's names are not twee, and go better with Sienna.

Both boy names are nice, I slightly prefer Zachary.

mayanna123 Wed 14-Sep-11 10:02:08

We have an Annabel so love that. But I also really like Sianna.

I much prefer Elijah from your boys' names - Elijah is a classic, strong but not overused name. I really dislike all the Zac/Zak/Zach names, sorry.

mayanna123 Wed 14-Sep-11 10:02:22

Sorry, Sienna.

mayanna123 Wed 14-Sep-11 10:03:08

As it is your fifth child, how about Quentin (Quinn), meaning fifth in latin?

CDMforever Wed 14-Sep-11 10:38:47

Anabelle definitely.

Like Oliver the best out of all the boys' names.

hugebluebump Wed 14-Sep-11 10:56:01

I like Sienna and Elijah.

birdofthenorth Wed 14-Sep-11 11:20:12

Elijah Oliver is lovely. Beautiful to give him Oliver as a mn.

Love Tabitha & Maria but less keen on Annabelle & Sienna, sorry. My DH loves Annabelle though.

saffronwblue Wed 14-Sep-11 11:23:33

Annabele and Amelie are too close. How about Tabitha Annabelle? I really like Zachary Oliver.

PootlePosyPerkin Wed 14-Sep-11 14:08:02

Both of your choices for boys are lovely. I liked Elijah for DC3 but DH dismissed it with a "hurrumph" & I couldn't have a Zac because I already have a Jack smile.

I think of your girls names I prefer Sienna - although it's always been a bit close to Senna for me & makes me think of laxatives blush. Annabelle is OK, just not a name I'm crazy about IYKWIM.

RickGhastley Wed 14-Sep-11 14:11:47

My favourites are Annabel (that spelling) and Elijah
