I'm 32 weeks and we're not sure what we are having. Sonographer thought it was a boy but couldn't confirm. So we have to have a girls list too. I have the fussiest husband ever so it's been super hard. So I'm going to put my list and see what you ladies think, suggestions welcome.grin

Grace- Gracie as nn as husband won't allow Gracie on birth certificate.
Jessica- DH dislikes
Freya- samehmm
Ariana-DH is Welsh
Darcy- my absolute fave, DH said never
Caitlin- DH said no
Bethan- welsh name
Carys- same
Millie-DH said no
Elodie-DH dislikes

Our last name is Wilkinson. Baby will have four names and one of the middle ones will be Rose. Thanks again ladies smile

Phoebe for me

Love Jessica , Freya, Phoebe, Elisa.

Not so keen on Elodie or Sienna. Not sure why.

Other ideas Megan, Seren, Emily, Katie, Lois, Lucy.

My favourite is Eleri (is this a Welsh name too?)

I'm not too sure about Ariana, Darcy, Phoebe, Sienna, Millie, Macey or Elisa.

All the others are very nice. Not sure that Caitlin Wilkinson trips off the tongue very well though.

I like Eleri, Bethan, Carys the most. Would Elisa ( that auto corrected to all capitals, weird) be pronounced with a s or z sound?

I know one or more of all of the others so would discount for that reason x

Ariana I like a lot, a bit meh about the rest I'm afraid.

Grace/ Gracie is ridiculously popular around here, at least 4 in dds year at school (yr2)

How about Lydia?

Eleri, phoebe and Bethan are my favourites.
I know it's a bugger but sadly if your DH hates it, it will have to go or be relagated to a middle name!
My DH was fussy but we found something in the end.
We got it down to 2 for both of our girls ( 1 we each prefered) and then when they were born he was so elated and proud of me I got what I wanted!
Four names is a lot!

Grace known as Gracie

Elquota Sat 25-May-13 21:18:15

I like


Alisvolatpropiis Sat 25-May-13 21:19:10

Carys is lovely. Grace is also nice.

Maybe Seren?

I prefer the names your husband likes on the whole though sorry.

We only make boys but if we'd had any girls, then Jacinta and Christina were top of the lists. Verrry pretty names and lots of options for shortening and/or nicknames...

effyzm Sat 25-May-13 21:55:03

Yeah I liked Lydia but DH said no straight away. I have doubts about Grace because of its popularity. I do like Eleri it's a little different but not crazy lol. Seren did pop up on a list but I don't think it goes with our last name. Thanks ladies. It's helpings put them in an order of preference

CarriMarie Sat 25-May-13 23:07:07

Carys, Bethan and Phoebe are my favourties, also like Elodie and Freya.

JojoMags Sun 26-May-13 08:53:12

Another for Bethan and Phoebe, and Arianna, Caitlin and Elodie are pretty. Like Jessica, if shortened to Jess/Jessie. Eleri - fine. Don't like the rest.

I love

Elisa would probably spell like this Eliza, though

Jessica is nice but quite popular and maybe starting to get a bit dated.
