hi, DC3 due end of Dec, we have two boys (Christian and Samuel) already. CAnnot think of another boys name that 'matches'. Our surname begins with R, and hubby is german, so anything starting with R or J is out. For a girl, we quite like Merryn or Meredith, or perhaps Elodie... DH has previously suggested FRodo/Kolja/other such nonsense - please help!

thanks. Felix to me is a cat's name (sorry).
Andrew is too similar to DH's name, and we know about a zillion little Alexanders! None of the others feel right, or have already been considered and discarded - any more ideas? want something not too popular, but not outlandish or hard to spell. Quite like Isaac, might run that one past DH, although could be considered a bit 'try hard' where we are!

quite like Lucas/Lukas (although know lots of Lukes) Conrad was suggested, but would get shortened to Conni in German, which is a girl's name to me, so I've said no to that.
I like Daniel, but know so many little boys called Daniel...
Fall back name is William, which I quite like (shorten perhaps to Will?) but will become middle name if think of something else, as William is also a family name.

Max
Sebastian

Love Merryn and Meredith. How about Martha or Megan?

KMR281 Fri 26-Oct-12 16:24:37

thanks - don't like Max (dog's name), Sebastian is name of DH's step-brother's son so that's out. Trying to avoid names in immediate family, or where we already have friends that have used that name, unless we LOVE it. Good god, there are no boys names left for us are there wink

Martha and Megan are also very nice - can go on the officially approved list!

Meredith is lovely.

I was going to say Luke - it goes really well with your current two.

Christian, Samuel and Noah/Benedict/Barnaby/Barnabus/Bartholomew/Laurence - Laurie/Philip - Pip/Edward - Teddy/Timothy/Peter.
