We just haven't found THE name yet so thought you guys might come up with done suggestions we haven't thought of. I have an open mind. We think if dc2 is a girl she will be nancy, if that helps?

Most of the others are either too popular or I don't like for no particular reason.

My ridiculous criteria are:
Nothing beginning with an s or an s sound,
Nothing ending in an ia sound ie Julia (can't think of a boys example),
Probably not 3 syllables,
Not obviously religious,
Not beginning with an f,
Not too popular,
Not going to cause issues with spelling/pronunciation.
Think that's it, sorry.

Forgot another name I love, Eric.

Love Lenny! But is it too nicknamey? Would he have to be Leonard on birth cert ? I don't liv's Leonard.

Calvin! Vinnie for short smile

TittyBojangles Mon 10-Nov-14 22:27:07

Another one I love, vinnie. But the same problem as Lenny, is it too nicknamey? I don't like Calvin and not too sure about Vincent.

I know a Kenny and a Lenny - they are Kenneth & Leonard on their birth certificates though. I think it would be fine to use them as names in their own right though.

I'm loving some of these suggestions, I just haven't had the "that's THE one" moment I had with ds. Not sure I will though, maybe we should just pick a name we both like and see how we feel in a few weeks about it. I'm only 28+ weeks so have time to change.

I'm just going through phases of liking one name then another which we didn't have with ds, found his name, loved it and that was that.

Vaughn

Gene....it goes so well with Nancy-you'd have to have a third to get to use both of them!!!

MrsNuckyThompson Wed 12-Nov-14 21:06:50

If you like Ted / Theodore what about Theo?

TittyBojangles Wed 12-Nov-14 21:50:42

Vaughn was on my list for a while but dh doesn't like.
Theo a bit too popular for me.
