Only a few weeks to go and we've finally got our shortlist for DC1! We both love quite popular/classic names and have agreed on several (similar) options:

Freddie Alexander Surname (two syllables, starting Ha)
Henry Alexander
Henry Edward
Emilia Grace
Emilia Rose
Grace Olivia

Henry Alexander

Emilia Rose

You do know that Emily/ Emilia/ Amelia/ grace and rose are very very common atm especially the last two as middle names. So would run risk off here being two Emelia Roses in many place though if that bothers you

Henry Alexander
Grace Olivia

Thanks! We know they're popular but that doesn't bother us. Didn't realise Emilia is so popular at the mo, we just love it.

Isn't there a baby's clothing company called Emile Rose? That would put me off the Emilia Rose combo

Ohdofuckoffplease Fri 30-Sep-16 07:12:05

Yes, there is I think barefoot! Emile and Rosie is it maybe?

Pinklily1 Fri 30-Sep-16 08:43:25

The clothing company is Emile et Rose.

SpidersFromMars Fri 30-Sep-16 08:48:03

Ohdofuckoffplease Fri 30-Sep-16 08:59:13

Ah yeah that's it, thanks pink!

Lovely names. Henry goes well with Edward or Alexander and I love Emilia Rose or Emilia Grace. Sorry not much help!

GinIsIn Fri 30-Sep-16 09:08:51

I have to admit I know 4 Amelia/Emilia Roses under the age of 3, and I don't even have any DC yet so just be aware it is very, very popular!

TeaGirl3 Fri 30-Sep-16 11:32:01

Thanks everyone! Our favourites are Emilia Grace and Henry Alexander / Freddie Alexander. Can't wait for the little one to appear now!

Love Freddie Alexander and Grace Olivia

Grace and Olivia are filler middle names which is why they so popular.

I really like your boys name choices

Henry Alexander
Grace Olivia.
I think a lot of people have Grace as a middle name so it's a slightly more unusual first name, it's lovely.
Exciting!!
