Due at the start of June so have 4 months to go... Lots of time still!

This is our first and we haven't found out the gender.

Boys names we like are:
Alexander
Zachary
Lucas
Sebastian
Frederick

Girls names are:
Francesca
Silvia
Juliet
Vivienne

What are your faves? Any other suggestions?
We might have some favourites on these lists but could do with some more suggestions/ideas too!

Thanks smile

I like Lucas for a boy but none of your girls names are to my taste I'm afraid

GillyBillyWilly Sat 01-Feb-14 08:21:54

Fair enough! smile

Your boys names are great. You can't go wrong with any.
Your girls names well I couldn't pick one that's nice from them.

Love Juliet smile

GillyBillyWilly Sat 01-Feb-14 08:29:15

Girls names ARE our issue although a couple of them are family names which we will probably use as middle names rather than first names.... Not sure yet. Really stuck! confused

Cant remwmber the rest! Some of these have become v common around here now. As in used alot.

Lucas, Sebastian, Frederick-LOVE. Slight edge to Lucas.

Francesca is okay.

GillyBillyWilly Sat 01-Feb-14 08:31:25

Juliet is probably our fave girl name actually although my husband loooooves Francesca.

Silvia and Vivienne are family names and I think my sister really wants Vivienne for herself if she has a daughter... And I'm happy to let her have it grin although we might use it for a middle name still... Possibly.

I like your girls names, all very elegant. Love Sylvia / Sylvie!

GillyBillyWilly Sat 01-Feb-14 08:33:20

Absent, I love Darcy however a colleague of mine just had a boy and called him Darcy (I always see it as a girls name!!!!) so that's put me off sad

Mumof3xx Sat 01-Feb-14 08:33:45

I like ivy for a girl how about that? It seems in generation with some of the ones you listed?

GillyBillyWilly Sat 01-Feb-14 08:34:58

Silvia is really growing on me.... Hence it's still on the list. Would probably shorten to silvie but I like Silvia as the "official" name.

GreenCurlyTeeth Sat 01-Feb-14 08:35:40

I love all your boys names.

My DD is Francesca so obviously I love that name! Funnily enough she often tells me she wishes I had called her Juliette, which I think is a beautiful name.
Not so keen on Vivienne but I like Silvia

smile

Mumof3xx Sat 01-Feb-14 08:35:53

I also had Scarlett on my girls list but someone said it sounds "hard" and it put me off

I also had -
Sofia
Paisley
Lola
Lacy

On my list but I don't think those are to your taste!

GillyBillyWilly Sat 01-Feb-14 08:35:57

Ivy is nice .....but we know an ivy and she's an old hag grin

Sunnysummer Sat 01-Feb-14 08:36:51

I like all your boys names! Frederick is always great as it feels like it has nicknames suitable for whatever type of person he grows up to be smile Zachary and Lucas are really nice but would be lower down my list as there are a ton of both of them at playgroups down my way.

Also less keen on your girl names, although I love Francesca nn Chess. Claudia has been a bit popular around mn recently, and has a similar feel to your list, perhaps? There's a 'girly girl' name list nameberry.com/list/35/Girly-Girl-Baby-Names that may have some to your liking!

Sunnysummer Sat 01-Feb-14 08:37:52

Oops, this is the right link!

Mumof3xx Sat 01-Feb-14 08:38:00

Ah well you don't want your baby reminding you of her then eh!

Spottybra Sat 01-Feb-14 08:38:36

Love your boys names. They were on my list. I'd probably pick Juliet from your girls list, but only because a friend already has a Francesca.

Mumof3xx Sat 01-Feb-14 08:39:25

The bit that puts me off Francesca is being shortened to Fran

GillyBillyWilly Sat 01-Feb-14 08:39:27

Oh and I love Scarlett but DH doesn't like it at all.
And I also really love Sophia but we have little girl called Sophia close to the family so that's a no too sad

Names we can't use are....
Amelia
Finn
Ryan
Max
Henry
Arthur
Oscar
Charlotte
Sophia
Felicity
Ellen

Would quite like something classic but not commonly used.....

Ah this is tricky business! grin

MrsSchadenfreude Sat 01-Feb-14 08:41:12

Juliet or Silvia for a girl. smile

I liked all of your girls names, by the way.

GillyBillyWilly Sat 01-Feb-14 08:42:45

Thanks sunny!

Francesca bring shortened to Fran is the only thing that puts me off (sorry to any frans!) but I can be the parent that says "her names Francesca! Not Fran!" grin

My dad constantly did that with people shortening my name when I was younger. Actually he still does!
