Only 12 weeks so no idea what we are having.
We a 1 year old ds who was not named for ages because dh and I could not agree on a name. If we have another ds he will probably just get called "boy" as we have used the 2 names (popular classic) we both thought were ok on ds!

Oh hates my girls list so far:

Louisa (Lulu). Maybe Ruby as a new
Cecelia ( cece) maybe joy as a nn
Sylvia (Sylvie)
Scarlett (Letty)
Felicity (Flick)
Margot (Mags or Go) Hannah as a nn

The only names oh likes for girls are
Hannah
Marley

Any suggestions? As you can see I like full names with nicknames

I really like felicity from your list

Marlboroandmalbec34 Thu 12-Jan-17 20:44:33

Hannah as a middle name for Margot baby spider smile

Love all the these suggestions. I really want Louisa or Cecilia but he is adamant they are not "proper" x

n0ne Thu 12-Jan-17 20:49:57

Proper?! And he suggested Marley?!?hmm

birdybirdywoofwoof Thu 12-Jan-17 20:54:06

How about Hannah, but you insist on calling her Hattie or Hettie?!

ClaryIsTheBest Thu 12-Jan-17 21:06:52

Louisa is a very 'proper' name! I personally don't like Cecilia (the meaning put me off, tbh) but still...

Louisa isn't proper but he likes Marleyy, ok... confused

What about Marlene? A 'proper' name (imo) and if he likes Marley...?

Marlboroandmalbec34 Fri 13-Jan-17 05:17:07

I know! It makes no sense! I have told him to google Louisa as he acts like I have made it up
I am not keen on Marlene (only fools and horses)

ClaryIsTheBest Fri 13-Jan-17 07:07:29

that's... well, personal taste, I guess. So, just out of interesting, does he like genuinely made up names? ;)

For me personally Marlene is Marlene Dietrich, a more flattering association with the name, I guess. ;)

Qwertie Fri 13-Jan-17 07:14:52

I really wanted to call DD Evangeline, but DH said it sounded like an industrial cleaning product :-/

How about Tabitha?

*Margot (Mags or Go) Hannah as a nn
Louisa (Lulu). Maybe Ruby as a new
Cecelia ( cece) maybe joy as a nn*

Since when do people chose a name, a shortened version AND a nickname??? Sorry this is a complete pet hate of mine!!!

And what does Hannah have to do with Margot?? (same with Louisa and Ruby and Cecelia and Joy). I cannot see any logic of using the given name and then a completely different name as a nickname? If you like Hannah then use Hannah!!

Pick a name. Shortenings and nicknames will evolve over time!

Marlboroandmalbec34 Fri 13-Jan-17 17:22:29

Sorry I will edit first post as I meant Hannah, Joy, Ruby as potential middle names not nicknames!
