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!

Flora and Otis

I also really like Clementine and Caspar but I don't think they go as well with sibs and surname.

I like Flora or Dulcie. Clementine with your surname is insanely long and doesn't really go with your other names. I do like Juniper, but prefer Juno?

Asa for a boy. I just love it.

Its that woman from countryfile - Julia Bradbury. She calls him Zee.

I'm sure a celeb had a baby boy Zephyr recently, can't quite remember who though.

curlew Sat 23-Nov-13 13:40:21

I am going to keep saying that Zephyr is a girl's name. And that even for a girl, a name meaning a soft warm breeze is a bit much. For a 6ft rugby player..........

Ham69 Sat 23-Nov-13 13:30:24

But also think Zephyr and Flora would work.

Ham69 Sat 23-Nov-13 13:29:05

Sorry but with your surname Juniper ends up sounding like 'Juniper berry George'. That would definitely take that name out of the equation for me.

With your other two DC's names, i'd go for:

Mumrose Sat 23-Nov-13 13:06:00

Ivy and Ruis smile

BoreOfWhabylon Sat 23-Nov-13 13:00:22

Juniper immediately makes me think of the smell of gin. Imagine a little gin-smelling baby!

No no no

Flora smells of margarine. Again, just no.

BoreOfWhabylon Sat 23-Nov-13 12:57:50

No no no to Zephyr or Caspar. They make me feel funny for some inexplicable reason.

Clementine also makes me feel funny, but that is because, in my mind, it would be shortened to 'Clem', which makes me think of 'phlegm'.

I realise I may be the only one who thinks like this grin

What about juniper acacia ?

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Sat 23-Nov-13 10:44:02

Zephyr Asa Ruis and Zephyr Caspar Ruis are both fab!

You're right about Paccia,I hadn't thought...another one off the list is good,though!

cloggal Sat 23-Nov-13 10:27:23

Paccia makes Juniper and your surname very 'peter piper picked...'. Love Mabel as a mn (and actually as a name altogether but don't want to put the at amongst the pigeons!)

Agree Zephyr Ruis blends, and Zephyr Otis Ruis makes the two mn's too similar-

What about
Zephyr Asa Ruis
Zephyr Milo Ruis
Zephyr Caspar Ruis

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Sat 23-Nov-13 10:14:32

I really want to keep Ruis in there as a MN I think...I love the meaning.

Zephyr Ruis?
Or does it need another name in between them to stop them blending together?

Juniper Ivy
Juniper Flora
Juniper Paccia (Pash-ee-a meaning peace)
Juniper Mabel

My 2 favourite for each:




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

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Sat 23-Nov-13 09:58:46

I like Zephyr Otis Cloggal

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Sat 23-Nov-13 09:58:00

Yes yes Chipping tis the last baby <sniff>

cloggal Sat 23-Nov-13 09:54:50

Sorry X post!

cloggal Sat 23-Nov-13 09:54:22

Zephyr Otis!!

Definitely Flora, or Juniper with a nn that's usually used (Juno!) smile

Flora Clementine?

ChippingInLovesAutumn Sat 23-Nov-13 09:50:53

One question please say yes this is your last baby isn't it?

ChippingInLovesAutumn Sat 23-Nov-13 09:50:21


Artandco Sat 23-Nov-13 09:45:20

Do you need a middle name? If so:

Flora clementine

Otis Zephyr

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Sat 23-Nov-13 09:44:36

MN rearranged my post and now it looks weird...I meant

Juniper or Flora

Zephyr or Caspar

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Sat 23-Nov-13 09:42:58

Flora. Caspar
