Surname is two syllables beginning with H. No clue about middle names grin

I like Nancy and Martha for girls

I only like Austin off your boy list. Jasper is a labrador name! grin

DramaAlpaca Sat 21-Jan-17 20:53:51

From your girls list I like Olive, Dorothy and Rosa, but not the rest.

I like all your boys names.

RaeSkywalker Sat 21-Jan-17 20:55:49

I like Wren the most. Really pretty.

Boys- probably Gideon.

Awwlookatmybabyspider Sat 21-Jan-17 20:56:22

I like

Don't like any of your boys names, but if I had to make a choice. I'd choose Austin. Gideon is especially horrendous. Reminds me of you know who

I like;
Austin James and Jasper Louis

Rosa is nice, but prefer Rosalie.
Wren is also lovely.
How about Tess or Willow ?

Love Austin for a boy.
Like Rosa, Martha, Summer, and Wren for girls.
Dislike the rest

My favourites are Dorothy, Summer, Jasper and Austin.

Dorothy Summer H, Summer Dorothy H, Austin Jasper H, or Jasper Austin H. smile

temporarilyjerry Sat 21-Jan-17 23:30:22

Like; Rosa, Martha, Wren

Love: Fergus

I used to love Gideon and it was almost DS2's name. I have been put off the name by you know who.

TempsPerdu Sat 21-Jan-17 23:37:23

Love Rosa. Like Martha, Nancy and Wren. Really dislike Dorothy and Wendy - the others are OK.

Quite like Austin and Jasper. Fergus is meh and I'm afraid I think Gideon is dreadful (partly but not only because of You Know Who!)

AmeliaJack Sat 21-Jan-17 23:43:04

I like Alba and Fergus.

The others are all very nice but I think the Summer and Wren may date (although that might not bother you)

JournosAreLazy Sat 21-Jan-17 23:56:08

Nancy and Jasper. Both fab.

CakeRattleandRoll Sun 22-Jan-17 05:50:49

I really like Rosa, Nancy and Martha for girls and Fergus for boys.

user1477282676 Sun 22-Jan-17 05:51:55

I can't be doing with Rosa. What's wrong with Rose? It's much nicer imo.

Alba sounds like the TV company.

Horseshoe1 Sun 22-Jan-17 09:17:33

Martha Wren
Jasper Gideon

cherrycrumblecustard Sun 22-Jan-17 09:22:01

Martha and Summer are my favourites. I quite like fergus for a boy.

MadameJosephine Sun 22-Jan-17 09:27:57

Rosa and Fergus, gorgeous names

chipsnmayo Sun 22-Jan-17 09:37:15

I absolutely adore both Alba and Wren. I quite like Summer as well,

Wendy is bloody awful and belongs in the 1960s, not keen on any of your other girls names.

I also love Austin from your boys list. Don't like any of your other choices, sorry.

Scattymere Sun 22-Jan-17 10:06:49

Best by far from girls-Nancy boys- Jasper

badg3r Sun 22-Jan-17 13:48:59

I prefer Marta to Martha.
