Hello, I'm new to mumsnet and thought I would ask for a bit of inspiration coming up with a name for DC5! DH and I already have 4 children (triplets Eric, Jeremiah (know as Jem) and Lara and a little boy Patrick) and are really struggling to come up with another name to go with our awkward surname - Alexander. Nothing seems to sound right with it!

So far we have come up with -



What do you think of our current list? Suggestions very welcome - we need all the help we can get!

Seth or Violet smile

Rex - too much "x" sound with your surname
Seth - like
Vincent - too surnamey
Ronan - OK
Leopold - OK but a bit of a mouthful with long surname

Mimi - OK as a nickname
Violet - like
Niamh - OK
Hebe - not keen

I think Vincent goes well with your surname. I also had a cat called Hebe and at the time would have named a dd that - it's a beautiful and unusual name (but let's not resurrect the would you name a dc after a cat thread?)

I think Vincent would be fab with your surname. Violet or Hebe for a girl.

Ooh, for a fifth child you have to use Quentin/Quinn for a boy - it is derived from the Latin for fifth and is a lovely underused name imo.
For a girl, Violet is lovely or how about Florence or Katherine/Katie?

Love Ronan.

Not so keen on the girls' names.

I like Vincent, Ronan and Quentin very much and think they sound good with Alexander.

For girls I like Niamh, Violet or how about Sara, Flora or Nina?

Doesn't matter. You'll go through all your other DC's names when shouting at him/ her anyway. 'John Boy (tut), Mary Ellen (tut), Jim Bob (tut), Carol Anne (tut) I mean X, come here now!' grin
I love Seth & Niamh.

Only like Vincent from your boys' list. Really dislike Seth, sorry.

Love Mimi as a nn for Miranda or Marianne.
Love Violet and Niamh too.

Like Vincent and Seth best from your boy's name choices. I would probably choose I.know a couple of pre-school Vinnies and I think Vincent and Vinnie are getting popular. Of the girl's choices, I most like Hebe. Really dislike Mimi

Vincent and Hebe are fantastic with your surname and your other names smile
