Basically what the title says. Can you think of any? (Excluding names starting with A,D, and K)

We like these middle names;
Boy: Bartholomew
Girl: Bella

For boys: Gregor, Kiril, Roman, Nikita, Mischa/Mikhail?

For girls, rather harder as most end in "a" and could eadil sound a bit too sing-song with Bella. Perhaps Sofia, Natasha, Anastasia, Lyudmila?

It's either Bella or Beatrix - I was worried about the A thing too.

I like those names but not keen on them. Here's my dillema; I like Ivan but it's my brother's name, I like Petrov but it's my brother's parnter's name, and I like Vladmir but not only is it my dad's name but it's also both brother and mine's patronymic name. Damn Russian naming grin

I love Jasha but it sounds too informal and more of a short/affectionate name than a first name.

Also I prefer Beatrice to Beatrix and think it's more interesting than Bella.

I'm a big fan of Soviet era ladies gymnastics and they had some fantastic names...Nadezdha, Zinaida, Oksana, Svetlana, Viktoria, Larisa, Ecaterina, Nina, Galina to mention a few..

This is going to sound stalky but are you pregnant? Didn't you just name twins?! (Artemis?)

stinkingbishop Fri 28-Mar-14 10:25:40

Tatiana or Larissa

NotJustACigar Fri 28-Mar-14 10:47:10

Girl - Tanya
Boy - Ivor

I had Apollo & Artemis is October. I'm not pregnant however, we are TTC in Aug. But no harm in browsing names now grin

What do you think of Yakov/Jacov? These are DH's favourites. They are Russian variants of Jacob.
