Expecting DC3 and starting to draw up a name list - which is a challenge.

What would you suggest?

Names that I or DH like - Robin, John, Robert, Freddie (only DH), Solomon (only me), Amos, Rueben, Rosemary, Tamsin, Arabel, Rosa, Audrey, Iris.

Hmm...

Rosa is lovely and fits your style whilst being individual too. Short name. A ending.

Boys... Hmm - what about an a/ah ending boys name ? Ezra Micah Jonah noah Elijah ?

bullseyebraces Mon 09-Feb-15 11:01:14

oh yes, love Ezra but a friend has one & we have close mutual friends, don't think it would be okay. I like Elijah but I suspect DH wouldn't, love Eli.

My fictitious fourth children might be called something like

Ursula (Sula), Astrid, Polly, Ariadne

Robin, Florian, Angus (I have one to go with my own Nina), Magnus

Nina, Greta and Pearl came to mind when I read your title.

For a boy, Nina, Greta and Dexter.

WowserBowser Mon 09-Feb-15 23:10:15

I like your list VainVulva

bullseyebraces Tue 10-Feb-15 08:33:36

So many lovely names out there! That's what is so hard!

My dad's name is on the list of boy's names Wowser so maybe you do love it!

Rickoshay I LOVE Jem, it's actually my brother's name though (short for Jeremy)

Does anyone else have a DH who, when asked about baby names, just suggests things like Titty, Fanny and Willy? hmm Amazingly he is actually a grownup not a teenager boy. Anyway, I did get some vetoes out of him, including "no Biblical names that sound very Biblical" i.e. Solomon, Elijah, Ezra, Amos - all the boy names I love!

Have managed to add Astrid, Helena (Hel-AY-na or Helen-a?), Susannah and Magnus to the list though.

LittleErin Tue 10-Feb-15 11:10:55

Nice names, they sound qute scandinavian and I really like most of Sophronia's suggestions. Also like Pippa, Elsa and Leonie.

CrispyFern Tue 10-Feb-15 11:53:49

If you have two matchy matchy girl names won't a potential third girl feel left out if hers is very different?
