Hi, I'm 20 weeks pregnant with baby #2 and #3 and I'm looking for some name suggestions, I like modern and traditional names but nothing too boring or unique. We won't be finding out the sexes until birth. The names I have thought of so far are:

Boys;
Riley
Cameron
Michael
Owen
Matthew

Girls;
Harriet
Rose
Jennifer
Lucy
Paige

Any other suggestions, and maybe even middle names too?

I had the same dilemma...you have my sympathy- especially as you have presumably already used one of your favourite names!
I think all the ones you have there are fine, but you could go mad with the combinations (M+M, M+F.F+F...)
all I can say is wait till you have met them, as names can suit one baby but not another. We had 2 dds (after ds1) and 1 was named straight away, the other not for a few days...poor thing

Paige and Riley will date, not a problem if you don't mind, but you might want to give them another classic middle name, eg another from your list, if you go for those so that they can choose later.

I knew baby twins called Albert and Mabel once, so cute!

You have both my kids names on your lists!

Without giving myself away, I'm not keen on Michael, Riley, Paige or Jennifer.

but I think combinations of the others would all work well? one consideration has to be whether you like the short versions of the names you choose as kids (and teachers IME) inevitably shorten names whether that's what you intended or not?
