Only on he kind of accepts is Brodie!

Girl mostly lovely, boys sound very American - not keen.
Depends on your surname but other suggestions
Laural, Pernille, Alice/ia
Boys - much harder - something short and strong - Saul?

Freya, Olivia and Finlay are alright but I dont much like the others

I was having the same problem with my DH. He hated everything that wasn't Thomas or James etc etc.
I made a list of all the names I liked (complete with our surname next to each one) and stuck it on the fridge door. After a few days he said ...... I really like...
Sometimes I think they need to see something a few times to get used to an idea.

Wow maybe I am going a bit far fetched! Haha

My 1st childs name is Leon so I would like something that sounded good with his name also.

We both loved Amber, but one of his close friends have chosen that name for their daughter...

Thanks for all your feed back, keep it coming smile

Is Charis pronounced the same a Cerys? Or do you pronounce the Ch?

There is a little girl who lives across the road from me called Cerys, she's very cute.

I like Olivia, Freya, Finlay and Harrison but I'm not too keen on the others.

Congratulations on your pregnancy smile.

Thank you Robbinyoureastereggs smile I'm so excited!

I know a Cerys too, but Charis is pronounced Caris?

once we find out what we are having I'm sure it will be easier, very excited and bombarding him with names already!
