Now I've seen the ONS list, some names I liked are going back on my shortlist. I thought they'd be way too popular, but they aren't. Still not sure about any of them though, so could you give your opinion/ make a different suggestion please?

I like real names, not too trendy, but ideally not massively popular right now. I also like names which can be shortened to one syllable.

Last name begins with H and is 3 syllables. Brother is Lou.

Boys: no middle name, or possibly Archie
Osian (Osh)
Eben (Eb)
William (Will)
Isaac (Ike - there is a Zac in the family)

Girls: middle name Lucy
Helen (Hen)

I think William is lovely but maybe too much with Archie.

I like Cara but maybe a different middle name?
as you like Anna how about
Cara Anne

William is gorgeous as is the nn Will although he may prefer Billy.
Love all your girls names but
Cara Lucy is the prettiest.

I would choose William or Isaac and Anna or cara. Also, I think it's nice to have a middle name and I like both of yours.

Osian by a mile for a boy. Archie is a good mn.
Cara is my favourite for a girl.

Osian and Cara.

I don't like Helen but do like Helena,

Hannah and Anna are both unspeakably dull in my opinion.

Oh thank you! So it's looking like Helen or Cara, William or Osian atm...

I like William and Osian for a boy I like Cara and Helena from your girls .

I like Ike as a nn for Isaac. Tempted to use that for future DSs!
