I'd welcome any ideas or opinions on a name for no.3, to go with Kiara and Leo. Our favourites at the moment are:

Ollie - is this too common, given that Oliver is top boys name?
Fraser - does this sound a bit characterless?
Devon - I love love love, but is it weird being named after a county?

Maisie - only disadvantage is their names would be very alphabetical!
Layla - we love, but already have a Leo
Kitty - already have a Kiara

Thanks in advance!

I quite like Fraser, and don't find Devon so odd (Devon Malcolm?). Simeon does make me thing of simian though.

Think you're right to avoid Kitty and Layla with your current names; might Cerys (lovely as it is) also be rather similar to Kiara? I'd go for Heidi from your list.

Good luck!

I love Heidi. Austin & Devon from the boys

Heidi is my favourite from your girls list. Probably Fraser from your boys smile

Ollie is popular. What about orrie? Isle of Man name, I think he was a king in a Manx legend.

Zack is ok. I prefer Zachary. But zack is cute.

Frazer sounds posh. Not saying its bad, depends if you like posh?

Toby is ok. Not very exciting, but a boyish boy name.

Austin I don't like, for personal reasons. And rusty old cars.

Devon is ok. I have seen boys and girls called Devon.

Simeon. Would this be sigh-mon or sim-ee-on?

Simon I like. Sim-ee-on is a bit of a mouthful.

Simon is my favourite.

Maisie is pretty, without being fussy. Wouldn't worry about alphabets.

Poppy bit bland. But I love the flowers!

Layla is cute and girly. Wouldn't worry about Layla/Leo.

Heidi is cute. We know a little Heidi. Works for lady as well as baby.

Kitty I would think was a nn for something.

Millie is ok. Quite a few Millies around.

Cerys very pretty and unusual.

Cerys is my favourite girl name from your list.

We know of twins called Maisie and Millie!

I wouldn't give Ollie on its own, too cutesy.
Zack - alright, nothing wow
Fraser - I like it even if it does remind me of the show
Toby - a small yappy dog or a train
Austin - love it
Devon - quite like
Simeon - bit too Biblical for me

Maisie - too cutesy. Ditto Millie
Cerys - I like, also Heidi and Layla
Poppy - meh
Kitty - least favourite of the lot

Toby and Simeon are great names for a boy. Not keen on your other suggestions.
Love Layla Poppy Hiedi and Kitty but as a nn for Katherine.
