I'm expecting my first baby (unsure if boy or girl yet), and have been thinking of baby names! Just wondered what you thought of the following:

Boys names (middle names after baby's father's grandfather's)
Arthur Christopher Alan
Henry Christopher Alan

Girls names (middle names after my two best friends)
Amelia Lucy Holly
Ellie Lucy Holly

Arthur or Amelia if I had to pick

I like Art or Artie as a nn for a boy

I love Henry. What about Lucy Amelia?

NavyandWhite Thu 13-Oct-16 17:57:35

Oh sorry just saw the friends bit. I'd say Amelia Lucy Holly then.

Not what you are asking but I like Holly Amelia Lucy.

I like all the names a lot, Ellie Lucy Holly is a lot of ll's, but she wouldn't actually go by all the names. All the names are really sweet.

Sorry. I dislike both boys' names (old man-sounding Arthur and I know too many naughty boys called Henry), and the girls names you've picked are wildly popular at the moment.

All lovely, apart from Ellie, which is way too popular, IMO.

I like Arthur and Amelia. smile

I think Arthur Alan Christopher flows better than the other way round, but all are nice names. Ellie Lucy Holly has too many repeated sounds!

Love Henry. Not keen on Arthur.

Amelia has more impact than just Ellie, and Ellie Lucy Holly is rather saccharine.

Ellie Lucy Hollie sounds like you are saying 3 girls names which I guess you are haha but it doesn't really flow of you see what I mean

I like Amelia

And Harry for a boy

Sorry Henry !

Henry and Amelia. But I second a pp's suggestion of going with Lucy as first name - it's beautiful, lovely meaning, and underused these days.

Not Ellie - it's a shortening, and a very bland one at that.

If you really want Ellie, how about Eleanor, Elena or Ellen - all lovely 'grown-up' names - on the birth cert?

Thanks for all your replies!
I like the suggestion of Arthur Alan Christopher, so might do that...
We chose the name 'Ellie' because I like Elyana, but fiance doesn't, and fiancé likes Eleanor, but I don't. So we compromised on Ellie smile
