Due DC3 any day- sure it's a boy, but don't actually know! Older DC are Charlie (Charles) and William. Any thoughts on these or other suggestions? I prefer having a formal name and then using a nickname.

So far we have:

Robert (Bertie)
Albert (Bertie)
Frederick (Freddie)
Christopher (Kit)
Edward (Teddy)


Lucinda (Lucy)
Arabella (Bella)
Pollyanna (Polly)

Edward/Teddy is lovely!
How about George?

Samuel/Sam springs to mind.

Elise for a girl

Thanks. George is a no for various family reasons. I quite like Sam but dislike Samuel, so that's out.

Christopher and Arabella from your list.

Got her suggestions - Theodore (Theo) and Gabriella (Gabby/Ella)

Dc3name3 Mon 04-Apr-16 08:24:25

Ooh I really like Theo. Thanks!

Freddie and Polly.

What about the name Phillip or Michael if you want to continue with names from the royal family? Edward is nice name too. Maybe Elizabeth, Anne, Sophie or Margaret for a girl.

Harry's my favourite of your boys list but I would use it in your case as with your other names it all sounds a bit too house of Windsor.

Your girls names aren't really to my taste. If I had to choose it would be Arabella. Off-list I'd go for Sophie or Emily.

What biblical names like Matthew, Luke, John, Andrew, Simon, Mark

I like Kit (Christopher) and Louis from your list.

Kitty (katherine)

And from your list I like Arabella and Polly.

Albert and Louisa from you list are my favourites.

Robert and Louisa.

LemonLuLu Mon 04-Apr-16 09:33:35

I really like Clara too

Harry's nice, but it does sound very Royal Family when combined with Charles (Charlie) and William.

I like Edward and Louisa best out of the other names.

Love your sons' names both lovely and classic.

Love Freddie - taught an amazing little boy with that name and also my dog's name so possibly biased. (Dog came already named, would def use it for a boy otherwise!).

I know of 4 Edwards nn Teddy under 5 so think it's very popular, but not necessarily a bad thing.

I like Christopher shortened to Kit too, but the Rooney connection would bother me!

Others for boys:
Joseph - joe, Joey
Henry (could use Harry as nn?)
Theodora - Theo
Arthur - Artie
Francis - Frank/Frankie

Like Arabella from your girls list best. (really love this name but couldn't use due to niece Isabella nickname Bella).

Helena - Nell/Nellie
Elinor/Eleanor - Nora
Olivia - Liv (know very popular but still think it's a beautiful name)
Francesca - Frankie or I know a 'Cesca' with the 'ch' sound
Genevieve - Vivi
Margaret/Marguerite - Maggie

Edward (Teddy) and Louisa smile

CodyKing Mon 04-Apr-16 11:04:04

As you have Charlie and William -

Maybe Charlotte or George??

Dc3name3 Tue 05-Apr-16 08:23:04

Thanks everyone. Lots of food for thought! I don't have a problem with the Royal connection but didn't particularly choose them for that reason. Can't have George and definitely don't want Charles and Charlotte!

Edward or Harriet

lrb978 Tue 05-Apr-16 10:32:21

For a boy, maybe Thomas, but for a girl I immediately thought Grace.

Theo could be male or female (Theodore/Theodora).

Off your list I would probably go for Edward and maybe Lucinda

Lucinda or Frederick

From your list i like Kit and Lucy. Edward too, but not Teddy -- Eddie is better.

My own William has 2 brothers -- Marvin and Heath
