Expecting dc3, already have Nina and Greta.

Our short lists are:
Astrid (nice, don't love it, name of a childhood friend which is a pleasant association)
Tamsin (don't like Tammy/Tammi which is a problem)
Cleo (car, bit trendy?)
Cecilia or Cecily (bit frilly)

Any suggestions to add? Not blown away by any of the above...

Boy will be John (strong family reasons to use this) or Magnus (love Gus as a shortening), outlier of Robert.

I think Cleo goes nicest with your other two.

I also like the spelling Clio.

I like Astrid or Cecilia best with Nina and Greta.

Tamsin and Magnus for me. Could John be a mn if it's got family significance? I love Nina and Greta, you have fabulous taste.

Other suggestions - Margot, Martha, Zara, Phoebe, Heidi, Maeve, Lina

Lucas, Angus, Oscar, Jonas

Cleo goes well. I don't think of it as trendy.
Celia? Less fussy than Cecilia/Cecily and nicer meaning?
Anya/Anna, Saskia, Violet, Lara, Alexa, Cora?
Fergus,Angus, Lucas, Reuben, Jonah

My step mum is Tamsin and has never been Tammy. Occasionally she gets Timmy!

Love Astrid, Stella and Sasha.

Your DDs' names are lovely, but I think I would avoid another name ending in 'a'. Love Tamsin, you could use nn Tassy rather than Tammy. All of your boy choices are great too.

I've known a few Tamsins and they have always been just Tamsin. I think Tammy is more of a shortening for Tamara, although the two Tammy's I've met have just been Tammy, not short for something else.

I think that Tamsin and Astrid go well with Great and Nina, but it sounds as if you need to search some more for a name you really like.

Love Tamsin. And as above, all the Tammys I've known have been Tamaras.
