Our first baby is due tomorrow. We don't know the sex and have not told a soul about our name choices and now I'm just curious as to how they'll go down!
BOY - Theo Louis
GIRL - Ruby Erin

What's your opinions? ! Thanks smile

Lovely and congrats xxx

I think they're fine.

I'm not a fan of Ruby personally, but there is nothing wrong with it.

They're both lovely - will carry your child through to adulthood with dignity. Congratulations smile

I like Ruby Erin. Not really a fan of Theo but nothing wrong with it!

Both are lovely. I prefer Erin Ruby as the order though as it sounds a bit Ruby Earring.

Really like both.

Both are lovely! Good luck and best wishes flowers

Both just lovely smile

I like them both. Ruby wouldn't be my choice, but it goes well with Erin.

I prefer Theodore to Theo, but you've chosen lovely names smile

zippyswife Tue 12-Jan-16 18:46:32

Lovely names. Congrats.

Starbores Tue 12-Jan-16 18:46:37

Both lovely although I prefer Louis to theo as I think theo is very current so may date?

MYA2016 Tue 12-Jan-16 18:47:39

Thanks all for the feedback. It's not something that I've thought about for weeks and now it's just dawned on me today that this name will be with the child forever and suddenly I've panicked that they're not nice names :-)
At least it's stopping me from stressing about child birth for a while sad x

Starbores - Louis is a family name (great grandad,grandad and brother) or I'd have loved it as a first name. Just can't really pick my brothers name as he Is still very young so it's a little too close to home smile

Ah right shame as its lovely. Theo is nice I just think it could be more faddy than classical and I suppose it depends if that bothers you?

MamaLazarou Tue 12-Jan-16 18:53:05

Lovely. Good luck with the birth! flowers

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Tue 12-Jan-16 18:58:25

I like both your boy and girl names. smile

My first was a week past the due date, he took his own sweet time. These days he is very keen on punctuality. All the best x

BBQueen Tue 12-Jan-16 18:59:48

I instantly thought of Ruby Earring too but lovely names.

Bubbletree4 Tue 12-Jan-16 19:03:52

I like Theo and Ruby. Not particularly keen on the middle names.

PotOfYoghurt Tue 12-Jan-16 19:17:27

Ruby Earring was the first thing I thought of too.

If it bothers you, and it may well not, you could add an extra middle name in between the two.

Or the baby will be born with a penis and you'll have no worries!

Good luck and congratulations

I prefer Erin Ruby and think Theo Louis is gorgeous... Congratulations X

I like Ruby but not a fan of Theo. it's really important, however, that you do not care what other people in RL think! As soon as you announce the name people will like it and if not they will get used to it

No I don't. It's just a difference of opinions though.
