Ooh, I like the nickname Raff! V. cool. I also love Ezra, I was trying to convince my friends to call their PFB this as they were looking for an OT name, but they went for Reuben in the end We also had Theo on the list but have got it down to Hugh and Miles - we'll just see what name the baby looks like
Tremolo We're awful at boys' names, really struggling - at the moment Rafferty (although apparently this is Jude Law's child's name which makes me feel a bit wrong about it), Ezra, Balthazar, Thilo and some other Jewish names (we're the least Jewish people ever) like Eli, Ira and Saul. DH also likes Bear.
We did have Theodore and Theophilus on there too, funnily enough, but dropped it as H can't get past Theo as Theo Walcott!
Also on the girls' list we have Mirie (short for Miranda), Bay and Essie which would be short for various names.
