It's verrrry early days. I'm only 8 weeks pregnant so we have plenty of time. But I'm at work and bored.

DP and I both love Megan and Emily

I think we'd like to go for Grace as a middle name. I also love Amelia and DP likes it too, but Megan and Emily seem to be the ones that stand out for both of us right now.

Surname is very similar to Collins if it helps.

We have boys names but, having two boys already, the list isn't quite as long as the girls.

They're both nice enough, pretty popular though. I would say Megan, Meg's a cool nickname!

Definitely not Amelia, I know 9 girls called Amelia.

Emily. Always loved it.
Don't like Megan much, tbh.

I'm not bothered about popularity. I have a Jack and a Charlie which were so hugely popular that people stopped using them. There's never been another Jack or Charlie in the school. Really weird! But I still wouldn't be bothered if there were 10 others in their classes. I like timeless classic names which will always be popular.

Yes I like Meg as a nickname too!

You don't have to say what your DSs names are, but it would help! smile

I really like your chosen names, a lot!

Megan is least popular, but I prefer the flow of Emily Grace. Amelia Grace is lovely too, but I've met 4 Amelia Graces and 7 Amelias! confused

Go with Emily Grace smile

Both nice names; Emily's a very pretty name, while Megan is stronger, IYSWIM. Grace flows much better after Emily as a middle name

Also, congratulations!

Prefer Megan to Emily. I know so many Emily's, I'm pretty bored by it. Indeed I know about 3 Emily Grace's, all under 5 years old. Megan nn Meg is nice. Amelia - not keen, although I love Amelie. Strangely I don't know any Amelia's or Amelie's.

Emily Grace

I like Megan best of all but I don't think it goes well with Grace.
Not at all fond of Emily, but Emily Grace goes very well
Amelia Grace is gorgeous.

I love Meg but not so keen on Megan.

Cel982 Fri 12-Feb-16 17:36:51

Emily Grace Collins flows very well. But they're both lovely names.

thebiscuitindustry Fri 12-Feb-16 17:43:28

Emily, Megan and Grace are all lovely names. You can't go wrong.

Ilovenannyplum Fri 12-Feb-16 17:49:40

My sister is an Emily and she is without doubt, the nicest, kindest person that I know smile

Emily Grace. Megan feels a bit 90s/00s.

Botchit Fri 12-Feb-16 18:16:17

Emily is a sweet name, but a little boring. Megan is okay but not very interesting either. Prefer Amelia, but there are lots of them around age 10. Grace is a lovely name but again fairly popular, although that's not a problem in itself.

I like Emily Grace best.

I like Meg, but I'm not keen on Megan.

PunkAssMoFo Fri 12-Feb-16 21:42:08

Or Grace as first name.

Emily is fairly dull & Amelia a bit 'of the moment'.

How about Amelie rather than emily also I think nicker than amelia, think amelia sounds a bit bossy, gosh knows why x

cheekstime Mon 15-Feb-16 12:58:51

Should say Megan is great; feminine and strong x
