Baby no 5 due in 5-6 weeks & I'm finding it soooo hard to find names I truly love. We have 4 boys & haven't found out the gender of our new addition. Preparing for a boy but would like to have a girls name ready... Just in case!
We have.....
Finley age 14
Eddison age 13
Archer age 10
Rafferty age 8
Please rate these names & which combos sound best... I have complete brain fag & am no longer responsible to make such a big decision smile)

Jackson DH loves this but it's Raffertys middle name so I'm not keen
Millen ( my fav!)
Montgomery (Monty)

Willow (prob as a middle name)
Ava DH loves this but we have a niece called Eva... Thoughts please
Thanks in advance......

I know a Rafferty with a younger brother called Montgomery (Monty). That's my favourite by far. He's also one of 5!

Out of girls I like Kitty.

Queenie68 Sun 20-Jan-13 23:23:45

How spooky! What are the other siblings names? We must have similar taste!

My pick would be Franklin for a boy or Bella for a girl. Millen makes me think of Karen Millen (women's clothes), Monty sounds like a name for a pet (sorry!) and Fletcher makes me think of Porridge.

Ava is nice and Indiana (but since I lived there it seems odd as a name now iyswim) but I don't like Kitty - just seems quite cutesy. Willow is a good mn though.

I like Franklin out of all of them.

I know a Rafferty with a brother called Willoughby. Will for short.

Wow what lovely names your children have!

From your lists I like Frankie and Kitty best.

Queenie68 Sun 20-Jan-13 23:27:37

Love Willoughby... Definitely adding that to the list smile)

I like monty best from the boys. Not got any feelings either way about the girls apart from Ava (which I hate, sorry)

BouncyPenguin Sun 20-Jan-13 23:28:25

What about Quinn? Means 5. Could be for a girl or a boy. I like Kitty as it can be shortened to Kit. I prefer India to Indiana. Of all your boys names I prefer Franklin as I like Frankie. I like Ava but it is becoming very popular. Willow and Bella both nice. Never heard of Millen. Could be a winner! With 4 boys you must have your hands full! I have 2 and that's enough for me.

I think it is a girl and you should name her Olive smile

Aspiemum2 Sun 20-Jan-13 23:30:26

Kit for a boy is lovely, I know twins called kit and monty - they are such cute little dudes grin. Explains my being partial to the names

Queenie68 Sun 20-Jan-13 23:35:28

Thanks all for such a speedy response. Off to bed now feeling slightly less stressed about the whole name thing! Don't remember it being so difficult before!

I was going to say Quinn, too! Would definitely avoid Ava if there's an Eva in the family. From your list I'd say Indiana (indie) for a girl and Fletcher for a boy. Love Fletcher! Also, how about Flynn? What about Ada instead of Ava? Good luck!

evamummy Mon 21-Jan-13 07:18:39

Definitely Quentin (Quinn) as it is derived from Quintus meaning fifth in Latin. Also think it goes really well with your other boys' names (which are lovely!).

evamummy Mon 21-Jan-13 07:20:44

From your girls suggestions I like Ava and Willow best.

Montgomery is the one

Queenie68 Mon 21-Jan-13 09:01:14

Thanks for all your opinions. Quinn is lovely but we call DS1 Fin most of the time so think it sounds too similar? Yes I think Ava is too similar to Eva but DH thinks it would be ok??! I love Fletcher but trying to avoid using the same initial as DS1. Today's choice is...
Millen Fletcher
Kitty Willow
But it could all change in the next few hrs!!
Why am I so indecisive ??!

Reaa Mon 21-Jan-13 09:28:37

How about Neo or Kit?

P.s I had 4 boys and my number 5 was our first DD.

Reaa Mon 21-Jan-13 09:34:09

The above suggestion are for a boy, for a girl Electra, Autumn, Rose, Amber-Leigh or just Leigh.

NowPlayingZone Mon 21-Jan-13 09:43:00

Sorry, but only like Monty & franklin out of your choices. Agree that Ada would be a good alternative to Eva.

Queenie68 Mon 21-Jan-13 10:11:14 u have a Kitty? Think I saw this in another post? It's definitely my fav girls name just slightly worried about the cat connection! Does everyone buy her "Hello Kitty" merchandise?!
Starting to be drawn to Montgomery again.....flipping heck!!
Reaa..... So much pressure from people hoping this one is a girl... I'm just praying I have a healthy baby as it was a complete shock ( miracle!) to discover I was pregnant after all his time... I thought it was my menopause starting smile

scrivette Mon 21-Jan-13 10:24:30

Monty is lovely, it goes well with the other names.

I love Amity for a girl, unfortunately DH doesn't confused

DuchessFanny Mon 21-Jan-13 10:32:28

I like Monty and Willow .... But also really like Quinn !

Reaa Mon 21-Jan-13 10:49:28

Our DD was a shock I was expecting another boy, everyone else other than my auntie said boy too. Like you said I only wanted a healthy baby but it was still a huge shock.
