Hi everyone,
We already have an Ella and an Austin... And soon to be little lady. Having a dilemma between Seren or Edith, or any others you think may suit confused please can you help? Many thanks x

I prefer Edith

Seren is beautiful

I like Seren. And it might be useful for the children to have different initials in the future.

I like Seren. It's lovely! And I think it goes really well with the other names.

I think they're both lovely names. Maybe wait until she's here and then decide what seems to fit best?

Definitely Seren! I have a DD on the way and she would have been Seren if DH hadn't vetoed it angry

Edith. Gorgeous. (I find Seren a made-up sort of name, sorry.)

Seren, by a million miles.

Angiepoise Seren is a Welsh name, means star.

Seren is Welsh for star, it's a beautiful name.

Not a fan of the older names coming back so Seren. Our DD2 wasn't named for a good few days whilst we decided.

Thank you so much, I think Seren is winning by far! smile

Seren because I have one and she is awesome!!!
Do you live in Wales? We do but are from England and it's not a well known name in England, we get lots of compliments on it.

Most annoying thing was when someone asked me if it was short for Serendipity though. I mean seriously?!!

Although I do think Edith is a lovely name. I prefer Seren especially with your other children's names. I think different initials would be nice and gives each child a bit more individuality for when they are older.

I think Seren goes best with your other children smile

Serena is common here, there are 2 in ds's class. It is a lovely name though.

LadyHarvey Mon 05-Sep-16 22:13:08

If my boy was a girl, he would have been Edith!

MBEB Mon 05-Sep-16 22:15:14

Same here! I'm from Wales, but live in England. No 'Seren' here yet...!

MBEB Mon 05-Sep-16 22:17:07

This is so reassuring, thank you... It's so difficult naming the third when you know so many other children, want to be a little different, but not too 'out there' for the baby's sake! X
