DH and I are TTC DC2 (not right now - I'm not that good A multitasker wink).

Just day(evening?)dreaming and thinking of potential names for the hypothetical DC2. Any ideas?

Girl: Hannah, Kate, Beth, Zara

Boy: Mark, Jack, Luke, Max

Emma is a lovely name... what about Amy or Anna? for a boy, maybe James or Jack...

Thanks all!

That's so funny bornto, she was very nearly Amy and would have been James if she'd been a boy!

Really like Anna, Max, Kate, Rachel and William too.

Also like Harriet and Tess.

I like Alexander too but can't use it sadly.

My best friend's name is Emma, and her brothers are Thomas and James.

The Emma I know has a sister called Megan.

Not Anna as sounds so similar to Emma. My first thought was James.

KlingybunFistelvase Tue 29-Nov-16 22:01:23

I think my favourites of the suggestions are Rachel or Reuben.

KlingybunFistelvase Tue 29-Nov-16 22:02:09

Weirdly, I've gone off James a bit, though we would have called dd James, had she been a boy.

What do people think of Margaret (Maggie)? Does it go with Emma or not really?

I like that Emma has a literary connection as well, which is partly why we chose it. Would it be weird to choose another literary name to go with it?

borntohula Tue 29-Nov-16 22:11:37

not a fan of Margaret but Rachel is lovely ! I like Anastasia as well... i've spent too much time thinking about this for someone who is not having any more children.

Xmasfairy86 Tue 29-Nov-16 22:13:37

Another James from me.

Jane.

KlingybunFistelvase Tue 29-Nov-16 22:19:13

I LOVE Anastasia! Would people immediately think of "I'm outta love" though?

I am also massively overthinking, since I am not even slightly pregs!

KlingybunFistelvase Tue 29-Nov-16 22:23:03

Jane was also on our list with DD. Not sure why it was vetoed, but it was.

EccentricPickle Tue 29-Nov-16 22:28:10

I knew twins called Emma and Kate.

I also knew another little Emma who had sisters called Kate and Annabel. So Emma definitely comes with a Kate! grin

For boys I think James or Harry goes nicely with Emma. Has to be a classic name, just like Emma.
