We have a son and daughter, so wasn't really planning on any more. However, we just couldn't resist grin there is an 8 year age gap, between him and our son

He arrived last week. We have spent this week narrowing the names down.

The list is:
- Benjamin
- Daniel
- Isaac
- Matthew
- Oliver

Our other children are Elliot and Gabriella.

I've also changed my username (I found out how grin) x

CONGRAULATIONS! Isaac was my initial choice but also think Daniel & Matthew are great choices! <helpful>

What would help is a photo wink

Oh, we can't possibly give name advice without a photo grin

Because I'm a sucker for "matching" sets and the others both have "el" names.

Congratulations on your squishy newborn. Tickle his toes from me!

Thank you smile here's the pic

Awwww!!! He's adorable!!! flowers

Benjamin or Oliver, I think.


BendydickCuminsnatch Tue 05-Jul-16 18:59:50

Aw how divine! CHEEKS!!

I really think he's a Matthew!

ButtfaceMiscreant Tue 05-Jul-16 19:01:52

He looks like a Matthew.

Those cheeks! I love Benjamin. flowers

NopeSorry Tue 05-Jul-16 19:04:24

Thank you! His cheeks are huge grin his whole head is and didn't I feel it

It's really hard, we like all of them, so will probably go with the majority!

Oh dear...can't you just call him Gorgeous & be done with it?

He's positively edible 💐

Day to day, what do you call the other two?

daisydalrymple Tue 05-Jul-16 19:04:47

Gorgeous smile congratulations.
Love your names.
I'd go with Daniel or Oliver as a middle name if you're having one.

NopeSorry Tue 05-Jul-16 19:08:17

We call the others El/Els/Elly and Gab/Gabs/Gabby, but tend to stick with Elliot and Gabriella.

Yep, we will be giving him a middle name.

Congratulations, he's adorable! All those names are great. Some of my friends with Olivers get all huffy about them being call Olly if that would bother you. Abbreviations wish I haven't heard any Isaac abbreviations and I personally prefer Matt or Dan to Ben(ny) and Olly. Are they all ok with your surname. DS knows a Ben Dover, I kid you not.

I think Isaac goes well with your other children's names

MrsEricBana Tue 05-Jul-16 19:12:46

Wise not wish.

MrsEricBana Tue 05-Jul-16 19:13:41

Olly & Elly - no!

NerrSnerr Tue 05-Jul-16 19:15:28

I like Isaac.

I also want another baby now. Congratulations- he is adorable.

NopeSorry Tue 05-Jul-16 19:15:45

We don't frequently call him Elly smile it's just something that we occasionally use! Is Elly and Olly really bad?

Last name is a -son name and starts with H. I think they all sound fine!

MrsHathaway Tue 05-Jul-16 19:19:32

Elly and Olly would be pretty bad, yes.

I still vote Daniel!

NoncommittalToSparkleMotion Tue 05-Jul-16 19:21:58

I say Benjamin or Oliver.

Congrats! flowers

NopeSorry Tue 05-Jul-16 19:22:37

But then is Danny and Gabby too similar?

sidsgranny Tue 05-Jul-16 19:27:29

Congratulations! He's beautiful. All your names are lovely (no help I know!). What do Elliot and Gabriella think their new brother should be called?

NickyEds Tue 05-Jul-16 19:31:18

I think he's an Isaacs and that matches your other dc's names. He beautiful. I need another baby!
