Hello,

Tomorrow, it's my due date! We don't know the sex. We have a couple ideas, but aren't sure.

Names we like, but cannot use:
Boy -
Teddy (Edward)
Lewis
Louis/Louie
Billy (William)
Girl -
Faye
Lily
Maisy
Scarlett/Scarlet
Violet

Name cannot begin with M, P, S, V, L, J, E or F!

We have a son named Elliot Finn.

Thank you! smile

Out of your list I like William and Violet...all the others are (in my opinion) really quite overused or dated (in terms of baby name trends)

Cara
Beatrice
Tabitha

Theo
Noah
Alexander

Out of interest, why the veto on those initial letters?!

VLJ1988 Fri 04-Nov-16 18:38:52

We can't use them sad

plimsolls Fri 04-Nov-16 18:39:31

Oh, just looked at your user name. I guess your initials, DPs initials and DSs initials.

VLJ1988 Fri 04-Nov-16 18:39:59

Noah is one that we're considering!

I don't want any initials to be shared grin I'm a bit funny about it!

plimsolls Fri 04-Nov-16 18:43:08

Yes, that totally makes sense, it's a good reason! I was just curious as it was a long list of letters and then I twigged why.

Elliot and Noah is a nice combination for brothers smile

You've vetoed all my favourite names with those letters!grin

Will just say you probably don't want to have Billy and Elliot.
I have a Billy and we had dicounted Elliot from our list for DS2 for the obvious reason.
I really like Teddy and Scarlet from your list

VLJ1988 Fri 04-Nov-16 18:52:09

That's why it's a list of names we can't use grin unfortunately sad

DearMrDilkington Fri 04-Nov-16 18:53:46

I like Noah but I just can't imagine an teenage/adult man called noah.

SpotTheDuck Fri 04-Nov-16 18:56:56

Have you looked at nymbler? You can put in names you like and it gives you similar names in alphabetical order so easy to skip the letters you don't want?

Normandy144 Fri 04-Nov-16 18:58:29

I can understand first initials not being shared as I know it bothers some people, but does it really matter if you repeat a middle initial? Do if your middle name is Jane for example, can't you have a James? That might make things easier and open up the field so to speak if you relax the rule a bit?

From your list
Sibling sets-

Elliot and Face

My name suggestions

Oh sorry! Completely read that wrong. In that case also on my boys list was
Reuben
Dexter
Henry
Benjamin (we liked but couldn't use)
Theo

Never had to name a girl but I like Amber
Iona
Claudia
Cordelia
How about Willow - sounds a bit like William in a female form

NapQueen Fri 04-Nov-16 19:00:28

Oops faye not face

NapQueen Fri 04-Nov-16 19:01:13

Oh bugger just seen you can't use those. Must read more closely.

Thank you!

I'm just funny about it... I have diagnosed OCD, so I assume it's related to that (similar to some of my other issues!)

J is my surname initial.

IHeartKingThistle Fri 04-Nov-16 19:04:01

We have an Elliot. My other favourite boys' names are Kit and Nathaniel (Nate). Also love Oren.
