As above really, looking for a nippy name that isnt frilly or massively popular.

So far I've got

boys
Sid

girls
Tess

Thats it. I need help please people grin

Should add, doesnt need to be one syllable. That just happens to be all ive thought of so far.

Am just going to reiterate my turn of the (19th/20th) century favourites! Have come across all of them recently, but they're not commonplace.

Stanley
Lenny
Rose

MyNameIsKenAdams Wed 26-Feb-14 13:15:13

Like Stanley! I know a one yo Rose who is a weekly visitor so cant have that.

Lenny just makes me think of Lenny Henry, sorry

MyNameIsKenAdams Wed 26-Feb-14 13:15:53

I love Laurie/Lawrence, but DD has a Little Women name so people may think its the only book ive ever read.

MyNameIsKenAdams Wed 26-Feb-14 13:20:22

Ok, have thoight of some more (maybe that dont quite fit the brief) so listing all

girls
Nina
Nia
Erin
Pippa
Orla
Alex
Nell
Lydia
Scarlett
Tess

Sid
Otos

Saul
Lawrence/Laurie
Louis
Reuben
Elliot

Lots of great names given that I cant use such as the cats and DDs.

MyNameIsKenAdams Wed 26-Feb-14 13:20:36

Otos should be Otis

fideline Wed 26-Feb-14 14:31:29

Maud? Billie? Suki? Faye? Sadie?

Nina and Nell are nice

Ted?

(Why are boys names always harder)

BlueChampagne Wed 26-Feb-14 14:38:47

Zoe, Elise, Meryl

Conrad, Adam, Felix

ToffeeJungle Wed 26-Feb-14 15:59:11

Like Orla & Scarlett and Zack & Louis.

Nathan / Nate

Anya / Anna

MyNameIsKenAdams Wed 26-Feb-14 16:00:39

I really like Anna but our surname is Can.......h

So Anna Can....

ShiftyEyes Thu 27-Feb-14 08:16:35

My favourites out for your most recent list are Nell or Louis.

Suggestions for a girl - Etta or perhaps Anne if Anna doesn't work.
Suggestions for a boy - Jem or Tom
