Evening MNetters,

I am 33w and we don't know what we're having.

This is #2 for us and we are struggling to decide on a name.

We have narrowed it down to 2 girls names but we're struggling with boys names!

The girls shortlist is:

The boys list so far consists of:

We both like both girls names, just can't decide.

Your thoughts on both lists would be much appreciated, and we are open to more suggestions for boys names.

TIA smile

I like Tabitha and Arlo, Tabbie would be a super cute nickname. Arlo or Marlo // Marlow?

All the names are lovely, although I'm not so keen on Ernest
. I have one of your boys' names, and the other one is my fantasy second ds name!

Re. Girls' names, I think tabitha sounds a bit warmer than Clara, but they are both lovely

Thank you both!

Forgot to add Arthur (Arty) to the boys list!!

Tabitha is my preference although I love Clara too.

I'm not keen on Ernest and I know a little girl called Arlo and I'm not a huge lover of unisex names so I'd probably say Charlie or Benjamin from your boys list.

Ahhhh, Arthur is my new favourite from your boys list. By far.

It's so difficult because depending on where you are and who you know, everyone has different experiences of every name!

Our previous boys list from dc1 got wiped out by so many close friends having babies and using most of the names from our top 10 (about 7 got used!!)...

Tabitha and Benjamin or Arthur.

Arthur. Definitely Arthur. Nothing wrong with the others, but Arthur wins.

DramaAlpaca Sun 15-Jan-17 22:14:24

Clara and either Benjamin or Arthur.

Mu51cal Sun 15-Jan-17 22:22:37

Wow - thanks everyone! We did consider Benedict, but wondered what with Sherlock, whether it would suddenly spike in popularity..?!?
Ive shown the thread to dh and now we're even more torn!
We might give it until tomorrow and then count up the votes!!

Love Tabitha and really like Arthur.

How about Oscar, Nathan, Louis, Felix?

Allalonenow Mon 16-Jan-17 00:02:00

I really love Clara but am not keen on Tabitha, and especially not keen on the various nn for it.

I like Arlo a great deal with Arthur a close second.

There are already enough Charlies! grin

Rinmybell Mon 16-Jan-17 01:21:48

Clara and Ernest (hopefully an Ernie?!)

flumpybear Mon 16-Jan-17 01:50:54

I've got a Tabitha - she LOVES her name!! Tabby is her nn
Benjamin is lovely, classic but not too common wine

Clara and Benjamin (Arthur a close second).
