Hello. We have one week to go until our due date and still haven't decided on a name. The sex is a surprise. I'd love any thoughts on these. George is a family name on both sides, so we'd like to use it as middle for a boy. Last name is Sinclair. Thank you.

1. Eleanor Sofia
2. Miriam Andrea
3. Rosa Helen
4. Evelyn Sofia
5. Eliza Mae
6. Talia Greer
7. Zelda Helen

1. Henry George
2. Thomas George
3. Martin George
4. Leon George
5. Owen George
6. Ezra George
7. Frederick George

Thoughts on these are as follows:

1. Eleanor Sofia - nice but not sure fit with surname
2. Miriam Andrea - really like this and think Miriam quite unusual
3. Rosa Helen - sounds lovely with your surname
4. Evelyn Sofia - nice but popular
5. Eliza Mae - nice
6. Talia Greer - like Talia, not sure about Greer
7. Zelda Helen - hm.... no sorry, sounds a bit 'witchy'

1. Henry George - not keen
2. Thomas George - I like this a lot
3. Martin George - I like this a lot
4. Leon George - ok
5. Owen George - nice with your surname
6. Ezra George - ok
7. Frederick George - not keen

Of the girl combos I prefer Eleanor Sofia and Evelyn Sofia. Of the others, just not keen on the first names although the middle names are ok. Also noticed you have Sofia twice as a mn, but not as a first - are you avoiding this because of SS initials? Maybe you're right there!

Henry George and Thomas George are by favourite boy combos, with Leon George a close third.

I love Miriam Helen. Your boys name are all ok except Ezra, which I really don't like.

1. Eleanor Sofia
2. Miriam Andrea - love Miriam, but not Andrea
3. Rosa Helen - love Rosa
4. Evelyn Sofia
5. Eliza Mae - like this combination, does it bother you that Mae is so popular as a middle name?
6. Talia Greer
7. Zelda Helen

Miriam Rosa is on my list.

1. Henry George
2. Thomas George - 2nd fave
3. Martin George
4. Leon George - fave
5. Owen George
6. Ezra George
7. Frederick George

Definitely, Miriam for a girl.

Thank you so much for the feedback on names. It's really helpful.

Miriam has climbed to my top spot. Now I have to convince my husband, who is not as keen. He really wants Sofia, but I'm afraid it's too popular. We've decided to narrow it to three and decide once the baby arrives. We'll see then if she's a Miriam, Sofia or Eliza (or Rosa - have a hard time limiting myself to three).

I also love Ezra for a boy, but my husband isn't keen on this either (agrees with Rhubarbgarden). We both agree on Henry. So if it's a boy, we'll see if he seems more like a Henry, Ezra or Leon.

I like all your girls names, except Zelda. Zena is nice though.

I like all your boys names except for Leon and Ezra.
