We have decided on a name for dc2 but would like to hear what you think about it..
Oh I should mention my and DH family is German so we choose a name that sounds good in German and in English..

We know it will be a girl and decided on Lara
If it would be a boy he will be named Oliver..

Our first child is a boy and we named him Samuel...

Beautiful names smile

They both go well with Samuel too

Lara is beautiful, timeless and underused. Love it.

Oliver is lovely too, although it is fairly run of the mill these days. I wanted to call my first baby Oliver, I remember it being very unusual back then but he's 21 now!

They both go well with Samuel.

If you want to make something of the German connection I also love Julius, Andreas and Henrick for boys.

Oliver is an excellent name for boys of moixed European heritage grin we know several German/English, Czech/British, dutch/British Olivers! It is so nice that both sides of the family can pronounce it, and spell it! Although for some reason, it's the British side of our family who struggle the most...
