I think we have found our girl names, just thought I'd run it by the nest of vipers gauntlet to make sure I am not making a terrible hormonal mistake.
Eleanor (which is DP's grandmother's name), I like it because it has scope for nns Ellie,Ella,Lea,Leanor,Nora,... as well as being nice in it's full form and having a family connection.
Middle name would be Roisin which is also the name of a family member.

Lovely. Particularly like Nora as a nn smile

Beautiful. And unusual but not too out there.

Very nice grin.

Now to work on your name for a boy......

Both names sound lovely together.

I’ve always disliked this name, it sounds harsh to me. But that’s just my opinion, it’s perfectly sensible name just doesn't appeal to me.

Nora is lovely though.

Roisín is lovely, shame that can't be the first name.

Eleanor is such a beautiful name. You done good grin

Well gender scan is in and they reckon there are no boy bits and that we are therefore team pink. So Eleanor Roisin it is! grin

Yonineedaminute Thu 20-Feb-14 23:34:44

Ah it's a lovely name! Can I just say though it is certainly NOT unusual, at least not where I live - there are millions or Eleanor's and Ellie's!

Davidhasselhoffstoecheese Thu 20-Feb-14 23:38:07

Best nn is nell though

What's wrong with ellie as a name?

NadiaWadia Fri 21-Feb-14 05:27:11

Nothing wrong with Ellie, just there are gazillions of them around! Probably because it can also be short for 'Ella' and maybe other names.

Beautiful - Eleanor Rose is our number one choice, so of course I would love it!
