Hi all, only 8 weeks pregnant so have got ages to decide but excited about names. Have had a shortlist for a while. Obviously don't know if baby will be a boy or a girl so thoughts on these please and other suggestions?

Abigail Rose (nn Abi)
Lily Evelyn
Iris Amelia

Benjamin Miles
James Edward

Thanks in advance! smile

I like Lily Evelyn but would reverse it.

And Edward James. Sorry if I'm no help but Eddie is my favourite name and I love the Evelyn for a girl. smile

Lily, but not with Evelyn
Or Amelia Rose stand out for me.

James is nice either as first or middle name but Miles is awful.

I have one of these!

We call her Abbey though wink

And Benjamin Miles

We are probably leaning towards Lily or Abigail for a girl and Benjamin for a boy, but struggling with middle names. I love Miles but hubby is not so keen. Also love Evelyn for a girl but have a niece called Evie, hence, thinking about it as a middle name rather than first name. Trying to find a good combo is difficult!

I like Evelyn Rose and either, James Benjamin, or Benjamin James.
Rosanna Lily, maybe.

Iris. Classy and underused.

Iris is a lovely name.

Lily is in but very overused. Abigail is ok.

Iris and James

please no more Lily's

Abigail is nice, there are a lot of Abigails/ Abi's

Iris is pretty but is quite well used too.

all boys names are good, I really like Miles most of all of them though. It's far better than faddy Milo.

James Edward is my brothers name!
Iris is perfect.

Iris. Lily is just too overdone.
