Is it by as in bye or bee? If the latter I probably wouldn't go for Sylvie as it's practically a rhyme.

I love Jean, one of my DDs middle names. Eleanor Jean is my favourite for the girls.

Love Innes too. Innes Alan out of the boys choices.

Oooh somewhere between... think a bit like the model railway sets

Lovely lists!

I like Eleanor Isobel, Eleanor Jean or Claudia Jean best from your girl list.

Either Innes Alan Nicholas or Laurence Nicholas Alan from the boys.

Lovely choices.

I would have Eleanor Jean for a girl.

I really like Marcus for a boy.

SmallTownTwirl Mon 28-Nov-16 19:52:45

Love Claudia and Marcus.

Eleanor and Sylvie are also lovely though.
Not keen on Laurence at all, even though I know a lovely adult man called Laurence, I still don't like the name,, so it must be a bad name.
Nicholas is ok.
Innes is not my cup of tea at all. I like some Scottish names but not that one.

I would go with Jean, because the first names all end with a vowel sound which I think Isobel or Iris would be a bit of a mouthful. I think Eleanor Jean is a great choice.

Out of the boys names I really like Struan (in fact I really like all of them) and think Struan Marcus sounds perfect.

I'm endlessly jealous of anyone with a Claudia. It's my favourite name but doesn't work with my surname. Claudia Iris is pretty.

Marcus is my favourite for boys

Loyly Mon 28-Nov-16 19:59:33

Claudia and Struan are my favourites.

MadameJosephine Mon 28-Nov-16 20:01:23

Love Claudia Jean

I know you said you wanted it as a middle name but out of your boys names my favourite is Nicholas so I'd just call him Nicholas Alan

Holding Mon 28-Nov-16 20:43:58

Claudia Jean
Laurence Nicholas

Claudia is so beautiful.

Sophronia Mon 28-Nov-16 21:05:55

I like Claudia Jean and Laurence Nicholas Alan

IMissGin Mon 28-Nov-16 21:58:47

Thanks everyone! Really struggling to narrow them down... Claudia and Struan were our original picks but I'm very torn now

NavyandWhite Tue 29-Nov-16 13:49:59

Eleanor and Laurence

ViewBasket Tue 29-Nov-16 18:57:56

Eleanor or Marcus.

mumsnit Tue 29-Nov-16 19:06:56

Sylvie and Laurence

..although I really like all your names (not helpful grin)

AnnieAnoniMouse Wed 30-Nov-16 03:12:37

Claudia & Struan, both by a long way!

HearTheThunderRoar Wed 30-Nov-16 04:04:09

I love Claudia, I agree Claudia Iris sounds lovely.

I'm not keen on any of your boys first names, however I really like Nicholas as a first name.

IMissGin Wed 30-Nov-16 09:29:46

Annie are you my DP?? wink

I love Nicholas too but we can't use it as a first name

ABCFamily Wed 30-Nov-16 15:59:33

Claudia Iris was actually my second choice name combo for a girl, so I'm hugely biased towards that! Sylvie is nice too (Sylvia was another contender for us)

As for boys' names, I like Marcus and Innes best. Alan probably flows best with either of those, although I prefer the name Nicholas.

IMissGin Wed 30-Nov-16 17:12:01

What was your first choice ABC? grin
