Due a little girl end of September. Already have Lucas Benjamin aged 4.

Any suggestions at all? So stuck! sad

No, no, no. I don't much like it for a boy but for a girl? Can't you go for something that sounds like a girl's name?

haha butler is our surname! Sorry didn't make that clear smile

LondonMother Sun 25-Aug-13 18:31:57

Sorry! If that's the surname obviously that's quite different.

I like Tansy. I've only ever known one who must be about 60 now.

LondonMother, I really like Tansy too. I knew one as a child and her never come across another since.

The short list I have are:


But my husbands short list is completely different:


we are at complete logger heads! confused

Lucas Benjamin is lovely!

We find girls names harder too... How about:


Love Sophia (or Sophie) too.

I did make a suggestion with Sophia (one of my choices) with Kaitlin (one of his) but he said this was unfair and how come his name comes 2nd, so this went out the window. I have just over three weeks left, and should she come early, she'll be nameless!

Men eh? wink

Oh gosh those two lists are total opposites arent they....

My suggestions are

Alice Butler
Katie Butler
Louisa Butler
Freya Butler

sparkle3232 Sun 25-Aug-13 19:05:49

I chose Lucas' name, so he thinks he has automatic rights to naming the new one. I disagree!

sparkle3232 Sun 25-Aug-13 19:07:06

Ah I've never considered Martha or Freya before. Thank you for those ideas! I prefer more old-fashioned or traditional names, but hubby prefers modern more common ones sad

Even my mother-in-law isn't keen on his suggestions

bluecheque4595 Sun 25-Aug-13 19:07:10

Fiona. Or Rowan.

Both names of my relatives whose surname is Butler.

PolkadotsAndMoonbeams Sun 25-Aug-13 19:11:20

Joanna Butler is quite nice (just jumped into my head, no idea why!).

You have such different ideas! Um, is there anything that's middle ground, like Grace or Hope perhaps?

ZolaBuddleia Sun 25-Aug-13 19:12:54

Clearly you are in the right! Is it too late to LTB?

From your list I love Madeleine and Harriet the most.

How about:

sparkle3232 Sun 25-Aug-13 19:15:35

He did suggest Faith, which is one of his better suggestions, but I'm still not fully brought with it. But that was on his "long list" and didnt make it to his "short list". I also suggested Mia as I quite like that name but he said it was a nice name, just not for him.

Our whole family is at war with this name game haha blush

Littlecherublegs Sun 25-Aug-13 19:16:01

Your list is much nicer!
Though I don't mind Caitlin.


Viviennemary Sun 25-Aug-13 19:16:58

I thought it was to be a first name too. But thank goodness it's not. I much prefer your list to your DH's. I think Sophia Alice sounds good. Or Alice Louise. And Joanna is nice too.

sparkle3232 Sun 25-Aug-13 19:18:28

It is to be a first name smile I just tried to buy him off with using his names as middle names. He is not having any of it sad

TerribleTantrums Sun 25-Aug-13 19:19:05

I like all of your list (although like Harriet less than the others), of your DH's list only Tegan and Kaitlin are possibles, Brooke Butler sounds like an accountancy firm. I think Celeste would go well with Lucas.
