Trying to think of names that go with all 3 of our DC's names and we can't, our last born was Louisa and DH thinks we need a name that goes well with that and it doesn't matter too much about DC 1 and 2 because their names work together - well I think that's what he said during his long winded ramble where he ruled out every name I liked hmm.

The names we managed to agree on for a girl are:
Harriet
Meredith - although every member of our families hates Meredith and have told us so at length.

We are completely stuck on boys name, I quite like Felix but DH doesn't!

I have a Louisa, it's a lovely name IMO. Names we shortlisted for DC2: Hannah, Margaret, Mabel, Anna, Henry & John (Johnny).

I really don't get Meredith at all. Not sure what people see in it, but each to their own, natch.

As for names that go with Louisa (beautiful name, by the way) - how about...

Merryn (much lovelier than Meredith)
Miranda
Helena
Rosalind
Aurelia
Antonia

Great name.

Thanks all. Harriet is 1st choice, quite like Victoria too.

Boys names are going to be a problem!

Meredith is beautiful... less common and people will get used to it. they dont have to like it you do.

I think it has that special something Louisa does as it is a bit different but not odd. Harriet for me is just a name nothing i hate nothing I love.
