i have a 1 year old called Isabelle Emma already i am pregnant with baby number 2. Don't know the sex yet but we have chosen our names and just wanted to know what you guys thought smile
boy: Myles Adam
girl: Faye Linda
i am not a great fan of the name Linda but it will be after my partner's mum as she has done soo much for us and all round is just the most amazing woman smile so really wanted to include her in the name xx

I like the names smile

mrsR1991 Sun 24-Feb-13 15:53:20

thanks smile xx

I like the names too.

Sashapineapple Sun 24-Feb-13 17:17:51

I don't love them but also don't hate them (apart from Linda which is not nice but you've explained why you're having that).

eachtigertires Sun 24-Feb-13 17:19:28

I like both names smile

PuddingWhine Sun 24-Feb-13 17:19:54

What aout Belinda instead of Linda. Linda is pretty if you really listen to it, but I think Belinda will come back into fashion sooner. Isabelle and Belinda kind of tail each other though!

Faith Belinda would be nicer but jmo
I like Myles

BookWormery Sun 24-Feb-13 17:21:02

I prefer Myles spelt Miles

TidyDancer Sun 24-Feb-13 17:54:22

Yes Myles is better as Miles, but other than that I think your names are nice.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 24-Feb-13 17:55:12

Love Adam and Faye.

insanityscratching Sun 24-Feb-13 18:11:56

Like Miles but not keen on Faye, prefer Faith or Freya.

FaceLikeAPickledOnion Sun 24-Feb-13 18:17:43

I love faye

Iseeall Sun 24-Feb-13 18:27:46

I like miles not myles and think Linda is a nice gesture to mil. Do not like Faye.
Isabelle is very pretty but imo Isabelle and Faye do not go. What about


are these the type of girls names you like?

I think Isabelle and Miles do sound very nice together.

ZolaBuddleia Sun 24-Feb-13 18:35:46

Like Miles with an 'i', don't like Faye I'm afraid. Love Adam and Linda is excusable under the circumstances! grin

I always feel sorry for kids with duff middle names after family members. My poor nephews got about 4 middle after various dead relatives all with awful names. Cant you show your appreciation in another way than inflicting Linda on a little baby?! I bet she doesn't even like her name. I adote my mum but shed have killed me if id called my daughter Jane. Everyone deserves their own name in their own right. xx

Myles lovely spelt MILES & goes nicely with Isabelle.

Nothing wrong with Faye although not my cup of the and goes nicely with Isabelle too.

WickWackThurso Sun 24-Feb-13 20:10:16

Faye is ok but not for me, it seems more middle name material, maybe because it's so short compared to Isabelle.

I would incorporate Linda but not use it as is eg Belinda Faye or Rosalind Faye.

I like Miles (not y) and Adam

selsigfach Sun 24-Feb-13 23:29:48

Ooh yes, Rosalind is much prettier and you can still tell MIL you've named baby after her.

mrsR1991 Mon 25-Feb-13 07:40:10

we already told MIL that the middle name is Linda and she seemed so happy. it was my partners idea to have Linda and i agreed because of everything she has done. i really like the name Faye. i love Amelia but partner doesn't sad don't want charlotte as way too many friends called that haha and not keen on eleanor as it's shortened to ellie a lot and best friend has an ellie-mai and loads of babies called ella at the mo. just too common for me. we wanted names that arn't common. Faye Rosalind would be an option for me but can't see partner agreeing :-/ xx

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Mon 25-Feb-13 07:47:23

Well done picking what is a seldom heard name, Faye, and what a lovely gesture to use MIL's name too.

Myles or Miles Adam is great.

Sorry no useful input but if there's quite a while to go you may well change your minds a dozen times smile

BlatantLies Mon 25-Feb-13 07:53:41

Lovely names. I prefer Miles to Myles. I like Linda too.

Artichook Mon 25-Feb-13 07:53:43

Miles is lovely.

I really dislike Faye. To be its a very 70s name and its neither timeless nor classless like your other daighter's name which is lovely. I understand why you are using Linda and I think it's lovely to honour MiL but Faye Linda is just 70s awful.

mrsR1991 Wed 06-Mar-13 16:40:01

well i am still set on myles but have actually decided to spell it miles now as realised the y made it look quite girly. i have really gone off faye now much to partners disappointment and instead of linda middle name will be lin as nothing goes with linda at all! thought lin may be a bit easier...problem is cant find a name i like sad any suggestions? pretty but not common please smile
