Hi im pregnant with baby no 2. My dd name is Riley and for a girl i like Lois but have read alot of negative comments about the name online but i really like it.

For a boy i like Flynn & Blake.

What do you think of these names?

Honest opinions x

I love Lois. Blake is ok...There seem to be a lot of Flynn/Finns about at the moment.

I don't like Lois, it sounds quite ugly to my ears. Blake is fine although I don't usually like surnames as first names. Flynn is awful IMO as a first name. It's way too try hard. In Ireland it's a perfectly normal, common surname and IMO does not make a good first name...

Lois is lovely. Blake goes well too.

Lois is a fine name. Flynn and blake not so much to my own taste. Finn I prefer.

Blake is very eighties playboy.

Flynn is dull. Lois is just ok.

Lois isn't to my taste, but if you love it, you should absolutely go for it.
I'm never sure if Blake is male or female, but I like it as a name.
Flynn is a nice change from Finn. I think it's too close to that to be try-hard. For me, I probably wouldn't do it, because Riley and Flynn would instantly make me think of Mark Blucas' character Riley Finn from Buffy, but you probably never watched it and don't have that association. Something to be aware of but not necessarily deterred by.

I like Lois, and have only ever met one.

Not a fan of surname-names, I'm never sure whether to expect a male or a female.

I much prefer Flynn to Blake. Agree that Blake sounds like a 1980s playboy. Wasn't there a Blake in Dynasty that the ladies were always scrapping over?

Flynn and Riley go well together. Lois is nice too.

Thanks everyone do yous have any other suggestions also?

I like quite unusual names not really traditional ones x

Lois is ok, unless you're Brummie

Lois and Flynn are lovely. I'm not keen on Blake though

Lois is lovely. Not sure I'd put it with Riley though.
Like Blake but not Finn

We have a Blake, only one I've ever met. Unusual but not weird (also it's very old English in origins). We love it (obviously) smile
