I think we've decided on names for either boy or girl but I just wondered what you lovely people thought.

We love both our parents names for a boy; so he'll be Arthur Patrick.

And we love Clara for a girl. But I do love Polly as well...??

Arthur & Clara are both gorgeous names.

Love them as individual names but together I'm not sure that they don't sound like they should be Cockney rhyming slang for something smile

I wish you were having twins as they sound lovely together.

Both lovely names. Arthur I especially like smile

Love both names- hate them together.

Just to give an alternative opinion. I love the name Clara ( was on my short list) but went off it as the name doesn't roll of the tongue easily. I find it gets sort of stuck in my throat IYSWIM. Might be jsust me but I prefer Polly. Or Cara?

Really dislike Clara, it's such a hard Germanic sounding name. Polly is much much nicer IMO. Arthur is okay, lots about so a fairly popular name.

it's such a hard Germanic sounding name.

Well that's nice. But it depends how you says it. We are Scottish so don't do a big plummy 'a' sound.

*say it, not says

Clara is much nicer than Polly.
