I'm only 12 weeks, but looking for names, as it is such a long process. DC1 is Harmony, so we like names that are a bit different. Thoughts on Phoenix??

I like it. I don't know if I would have actually dared though (I love 'out there' names but actually using them ... not sure).

Great middle name?

Great name. A worthy brother for Harmony!

Nice with harmony. Wouldn't be doable if she was called Sarah Jane wink

As far out names go, it's pretty great.

Good so far! DS has a more 'normal' name, so I do worry that it won't go, especially as you mentioned that DD couldn't be a Sarah, IYSWIM! He is Robin, but I still think that's very different for a boy? I think Phoenix is our top contender for a boy smile

I really like it!

I think it is a bit much to live up to - you would have to be pretty sure he is going to be cool!

They're both birds! smile

I think Scary Spice has a DD called Phoenix (random fact grin) so I've always considered it to be a unisex name and could be used if you had a girl or boy.

It's not to my taste at all though so I have no other useful suggestions!

Yes, my dd has a little girl called Phoenix in her class at school. I'm not keen to be honest but if you love it, go for it!

Have a boy called Phoenix in my class, he is fab, name is great!

There are 2 girl Phoenix at DCs school, except one is a Pheonix hmm, please don't do that. grin

It's nice, but I would never be brave enough to use it!

It makes me think of Scary Spice's daughter too. I'm not a fan personally, but it goes really well with Harmony! Robin is different, but perhaps a bit more commonly used than the other too, so I would have that in mind when naming baby no.3.
