In no particular order...




Ruis (roo-ish,meaning-elder tree-associated with winter solstice)

Im well aware most of them are quite marmite...but we like them.
Siblings are Skye & Arlo, surname is P e r r y-G e o r g e.

Pick your favourites please!

I'd say Flora is more popular in the South than in Scotland. It does sound like a Telegraph type name.

Stand corrected, only 19 Floras in Scotland in 2012 (though that probably equates to 190ish in the English results). Only three less than Florence with 22. But 23 called Ivy!

(I always think of Flora as a bohemian, folksy name, so funny squoosh how people hear then differently!)

Flora or Caspar.

Was going to saw Asa but the only Asa I've ever come across was female???

If you are worried that Flora will be too popular, what about Fleur? Very pretty, sweet for a child, but also works well for a grownup, so much nicer than Ivy and goes with the names of your other children and your surname.

I'm not a fan of Fleur.

MollyBerry Fri 22-Nov-13 20:12:16

I seem to stand alone but love Clementine out of those 3

MortifiedAnyFuckerAdams Fri 22-Nov-13 20:13:37

Flora and Otis.

As an birth thread..yes?

I can try Mort I can try grin

NarwhalKnickers Fri 22-Nov-13 20:46:24

Zephyr and Juniper.

You have to use Zephyr for me, my other two have sensible names with slightly out there middle names and using Zephyr as a first wouldn't fit properly angry

Flora is getting much more popular and I think Clementine is a bit too long with your surname.

Mellowandfruitful Fri 22-Nov-13 21:15:42

Now you've ruled out Otis, Flora and Caspar.

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Fri 22-Nov-13 21:32:08

No I haven't confused

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Fri 22-Nov-13 21:40:54

Have I?!

<panics about sanity>

Mellowandfruitful Fri 22-Nov-13 21:42:52

Oh, is it back on? Flora and Otis then.

Ah, wait... I see. Sorry, I should have typed

Now you've ruled out Otis, I think you should go for Flora and Caspar. smile

babyfedleaning Fri 22-Nov-13 21:45:11

I wouldn't use Flora as it looks like Arlo backwards to me. I think I see things a bit differently though so am probably alone in this!

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Fri 22-Nov-13 21:47:13

Ahhhh,yes I see Mellow that had me totally bamboozled grin

eatyourveg Fri 22-Nov-13 21:54:18

Casper and Clementine

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Fri 22-Nov-13 21:55:45

Zephyr and Flora are DP's favourites

Zephyr is my favourite boys name...very closely followed by Ruis.

I cannot decide between the girls names. At all.
Not even to go with DP's choice of Flora and be done with it...because then I think Nooo it needs to be Juniper and then I panic... Noooo Clementine!

Someone help me with first name middle name combos...maybe that'll settle it...

squoosh Fri 22-Nov-13 21:57:07

As the weeks go on Frigg is starting to look good to me.

I like all your boys names, except maybe ruis as I think it will be constantly mispronounced. Girls names I only really like Flora (very pretty with your other dc's) maybe Juniper. I can't think of clementine without thinking of a round orange fruit, and i find it just too posh. That's just my opinion though. I love skye as its quirky and cool and i could imagine it crossing all social groups, same
goes for zephyr,Asa, Caspar, whereas clementine is a bit too rah for me but feel free to ignore me smile

BoreOfWhabylon Fri 22-Nov-13 23:06:09

Dulcie and Asa.

(I can't keep up with the rulings in/out)

Kikibee Fri 22-Nov-13 23:09:54

I love love love Juniper, please use this name if you give birth to a lovely girl grin

squoosh Fri 22-Nov-13 23:11:00

Skye and Arlo are quite boho-ish, I agree that Clementine is a bit too stuffy to with these names.
