I wouldn't allow myself to post until after the scan, in case it jinxed us. So excited to be able to finally post.

We are struggling with boys names, but we are much easier with girl's names.

So I thought start with the easier one.

Our favourite for sometime is Tessa. A distant second is Freya.

Opinions on Tessa (tess for short)? What other names might we like????

dh loves classic names, queen's names, anything quintessentially english.

I like classic too, but my preference is for sonething not too common.

Surname starts with H ends with ie...

Any advice appreciated.

Really like Tessa/Tess. I think you should stick with that.

However:-

Nancy
Kitty (poss short for Katherine)
Marnie (poss short for Marina)
Daisy
Annabel

Lissa/Melissa has a similar sound to it, if you wanted something similar.

Anna

Hmm, I'll try to think of more.
