Right, think we might have found names that both DH and I like (and which don't inadvertently add to our cat theme smile.

So we'd have Felix and Louisa, or Felix and Theodore.

What do you think?

Do feel free to be honest! I'm not 100% in love with the names, so happy to be swayed. (Except Felix because he's already here!)

Louisa and Theodore.

I like both.

Would love for you to go for Tabitha (nn Tabby) though.

TheCharWoman Thu 27-Feb-14 14:11:01

Yeah sorry Dr Seuss, what I was trying to say was that we already have a DS called Felix!

Now trying to name DC2, so getting opinions on girl/boy names for this baby!

Ralph, don't! Still love Tabitha...

I love Louisa, am lukewarm on Theodore (but Theo is great) and think both would go nicely with Felix.

I love Theo but there's no way I'd be able to call a child Theodore day to day, it sounds so pompous.

Louisa is okay, it's very.............sensible.

I love them both. I think it's nice to have names with plenty of nickname potential too - Lou/Lulu/Lola, Theo/Ted/Teddy etc

Lovely names. Are you expecting twins? I also like the name Thea for a girl which kind of mixes the 2 names you like. :-)

They are great names and go well with Felix.

Love Louisa. Not so keen on Theodore.

I love Louisa. It goes really well with Felix.

Lottystar Thu 27-Feb-14 15:26:23

I really like Theodore and I think it goes with your ds's name but tbh I think Louisa is a little bit dull and you will have to be happy with the fact she may be called Lou a lot. If you're fine with that then great. How about Theodora for a girl? Dora or Theo are much nicer nn too.

I have a Theo and wanted DD to be Felix if she was a DS. Louisa is lovely, too. Great choices to go with Felix.

KatherinaMinola Thu 27-Feb-14 17:48:41

Both lovely names. Classic but not overly popular.

TheCharWoman Thu 27-Feb-14 20:03:22

DH doesn't like Theodora/Thea for some reason.

Glad to hear that they sound ok with DS's name (not that they have to match or anything, but just don't want to sound like I'm calling a litter of kittens!)

I do see what you mean Squoosh. We quite like Ted as a nickname, but don't mind Theo if that's what develops.

Both great names and either would sound good with Felix. Love Theo and Teddy as NN for Theodore (not such a fan of Ted but that's because I'm a Buffy fan and it makes me think of a murderous robot grin )
